I'm your run of the mill nerd-artist. I love video games, anime/cartoons, fantasy/scifi movies, and get very jealous of those who can draw better of me and wish I instantly had their skill.

In the summer of 2009 while working as a groundskeeper at a cemetery I came up with the idea for a webcomic. This idea eventually led me to download a "how to draw Manga" book and see what I could do. I never actually read the book, just took tips here and there from it and in late 2009 I came up with my first drawings. A year later I dropped the comic idea didn't like keeping myself to deadlines and really wanted to just focus on improving and began just trying to get better at drawing. I then came up with my current batch of OCs who make up pretty much all my drawings.

I've never taken a class or any lessons on drawing. All I've learned has come from reading through different books own 5 now, talking to artist who have been inspirations to me to get tips and tricks, and a whole lot of trial and error.

I'd love to hear your feedback on my work. Though try not to be too harsh...

Oh, almost forgot. The sketch is great, though I would advise that, since you exaggerated with the bust --as I recall, due to the character's design--, you should try doing that with the hips, too... Slugbox's a good example for that ^///^' and... Since what she's wearing is a bit tight on the bust, I would erase the line under the V formed in the cleavage. But that's entirely up to you, others like it and others don't.

I've been trying to exaggerate with such proportions lately xP they're really challenging...

Huh, I will give changing the hips a try now that I know how to modify lines in photoshop fairly easily.  I haven't looked at Slugbox's stuff in a while...but I have an idea on what you mean.  As for the line, not sure if I'll change it or not.  Looking at the drawing again I actually think I made her breasts too small....

It is tough to exaggerate the breasts and hips of a character and still make them look appealing....

Looking forward to the result!
I like some of his stuff, but I think he exaggerates tons with the breasts... And it's a bit hard to me breasts big in anfacé , especially if you don't want them to drop from gravity...

Yeah... And in the coloring, proper palettes, shades... Ecchi and hentai are hard to draw after all.
