valentine’s already passed but uh
never ever gonna watch the pokemon anime again
wow, thank you everyone! Can’t believe there are so many of you already!! probably thanks to ewar’s great artist-blog rec list there are suddenly a lot more of you, thanks for that too!
(the first one was drawn at a drawing meet-up in Turku, they are holding one every two weeks, winks at everyone who happens to live close by)
it’s that time of the year again
maybe not digital-art art vice, but for sketchbooking and me myself this was a wonderful year! I say this every year, but this has been better than any of the years I’ve lived so far!
idk about improvement but I think I’m starting to figure out what I might want to do
and sorry for the lack of updates lately… all i’ve been drawin is jojo
I keep rewriting this reply because I don’t know how to adequately express how much I love this
the color scheme and setting are really nice to look at
and I keep looking at it and finding little details that make me so happy
not sure if this will offend anyone else but this is my favorite art I have received ever
I just feel so intensely satisfied
I feel like I have wanted this for a long time but just never knew
Thank you so much
Merry Christmas aya ;;_;;

Anonymous asked you: how can I learn to draw faster?
Draw a lot! Practice a lot! A lot!
Think about when you first begin speaking a foreign language. All the grammar and sentence structures confuse you and you have to check the dictionary for every other word and all you can manage is broken sentences and talking veeeery slowly. But as you keep using the language you get faster, need to rely less of the help of textbooks and eventually, if you are devoted, you’ll master the language! It’s the same for drawing! It’s all about absorbing new information while getting used to the medium. Here are some things that have helped me:
Abandon your pencil: Trust me and everyone who’s gone to CSSSA on this and switch to a pen! You’ll learn to get things right on the first try, which means less erasing, which in turn means you’ll be faster!
Contour drawing: The kind where you try to draw a thing from observation without lifting the pen even once. Sometimes this might be a face, a whole body or a whole building with all it’s details. For me this helped with making my shaky hand much more stable and the lines more confident!
Quick gestures: Quick is the key-word here, there are some websites for these, but another nice thing to do is find a nice dance MV, pause that every 5 frames and quickly jot down the pose you see paused.
all in all I’m still painfully slow myself (especially with lineart painting etc) but that just means I need a lot more practice! Answered this as a reblogable so that others can pitch in if they like to since I’m nOT SUrE what else to suggest. Also if you don’t already do that I suggest you go take a look at Noah Bradley’s blog he’s pretty good at motivational speeches. GOOD LUCK ANON!!
