So many great artists, so little time to browse through everything....

So lately I have been trying to motivate myself back into drawing.  I've slowly been doing some sketches, nothing post worthy, just trying to get my skills back to up.  As for the old things I have had sitting on my computer...it is hard to say.  I tried doing some work yesterday on one of them, but just could not get much done without thinking that it wasn't coming out any good.  Plus the current setup for my new tablet is just awful.  The tablet sits on a desk on the other side of the room.  Didn't know how much I relied on a mouse and keyboard for things.  But a rearranging of furniture isn't that hard, the hard part is just trying to sit down and work on art again....maybe I am just not cut out to be an artist.....time for work...

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...

You're welcome.  You are a great artist and I was absolutely blown away when I saw that drawing of Ryuko.  Made me super jealous of your talent.  Keep up the great work and I look forward to when you open commissions again because I would love to have you draw one of my OCs.

No need to thank me so much, I only speak the truth and you're right.  With practice I will get better.  I just wish I had more time to work on practicing my art.  Though I doubt I will get better than you.  Will keep an eye open for when you open commissions again!
