If you want to improve your art, you can easily self-learn using books and online resources.
I would suggest doing some anatomy studies. That's what I'm doing now actually.

Take a look at these tutorials and I think it will help to make your characters look much more natural :)

It's good that you are confident but practice is just as--if not more--important imho.

Well drawing the body is my only mountain right now. It's basically making everything flow in terms of actual body structure, where your arms can bend and move, how will the shoulders look, how is it going to look when you draw a certain pose, same with legs. I really want to move away from such simple poses and really explore what the human body can really do.

I'll definitely take a look at those links when I get time. Thank you

Good job with your work, its impressive, esp. given you have no formal training and innate talent. Keep it up

Anatomy, anatomy, anatomy. After studying and drawing out the different body parts on a constant basis everything will start clicking into place with due time. That combined with pose studies help a ton.

The wagon looks awesome! I never thought about using 4 wheels before, looks soo good. I'll definitely start playing around with the design, thanks soo much for doing that, i love it. I could never get a good wagon reference.

I should start drawing some backgrounds I can reuse, I can see myself taking a good amount of time with drawing trees. You make it look so easy, there's soo many ways you can draw them

Funny. I actually use to watch a lot of mark crilly, and he was pretty much the first actual artist I kinda followed. I guess I kinda stopped watching but the guy is an amazing artist. he actually does have a lot of in depth training videos.

I know I've just been going in blind at this point, but ill have to dedicate some time for learning a few things. Dam this laziness, definitely have to break from it and just study art.

I watched this video the other day and I thought that it was really helpful in terms of pose design, and for a medium such as manga/comics which are all about still frames of characters, pose design is pivotal. Some of the stuff near the end is a bit extraneous, but its a solid video for an animator or artist to watch:

Sweet anything on posing is pretty crucial, since that is where the drawing provides the viewer with actual attachment.

That's all I really need to focus on is posing. I mean I can play them out in my head, but if anything it's just time consuming, maybe if I sit there for like 7 or 8 hours, yeah I can actually draw up something good without referring to anything, that's basically what I always do, get an idea, and just do it, I never pull up a video and plan from that. If i need reference I refer to my own body at times, it's like I'm too stubborn to just view something helpful. I sware I need someone behind my back to give me a nice slap across the head, literally. Virtual slaps are acceptable.

I've been planning on getting one of these wooden drawing models for a while. It seems like it would help with understanding the skeletal structure and working with perspective.



Posing though isn't really something I've ever thought about (which is really not smart of me). I've just sort of drawn stuff and sometimes it has looked good and sometimes it hasn't.

Exactly, if I want reference I want something like that, but those can cost way too much; well the ones I've seen, I'm better off making my own probably because if I do plan on buying one, I want it to be a quality figure.

So quick clarification.

Where does the Chapter 1 you just posted fit with all of the other things that you have posted so far? Is it a rewrite of the storyboard pages you posted? If not, is this going to be drawn into a comic or is supposed to be like a novel?
