Hello Edd! I really like your character design. I specially like number 1 and 3 but I think the most important thing is to give your character a color palette that helps show your character's personality and background. For example, number 1 makes me think that it is part of royalty or at least that it has an important role in his society because the color of his armor is gold. Number 3 gives me more villain/antagonistic vibes.

Thank you for the comment, I wanted an unbiased opinion that is why i din't add context to the charater but if you are curious: Its suposed to be a traveler NPC, gentle gigant, humble character, not royalty or high society. You find him around town with some wares to sell. The belly plate is something from his culture, ornamental moslty provides little defense.

Honestly I would say just use any paper, personally I keep a ton of used print paper around ad draw on the back of it for warmups and few minute gestures.

Well, it never gets easier, in a good way. You gotta understand that studying human anatomy is one of the most difficult things ever to do as a artist so don't beat yourself up. Before giving any advice, how much time did you spend on each of this drawings? and is it possible to see better quality pics? Just saying, its a little rough heh. Also, imo there is a component of construction to gesture drawing, yes, but like @Synthia Lillendandie said if you wanna focus on construction then do that, but if its gesture then focus on just eye balling things, not tying to measure everything all the time helps too. To loosen myself up and keep the art anxiety at bay i do VERY short timed gestures. From 30 seconds to 2 minutes max, that forces you to improvise on the spot, and also forces you to filter out what's most important to the gesture and what provides more visual information with the least amount of work or in this case in the least amount of time. TLDR keep going lol, it gets better the more you do it

Hi! This is my first post. It's finished and all but I will use any feedback I get for future work. This was from a character design challenge at my job, they asked for a ~8 year old, chubby, thai, witch, from the future. That's the brief, how do you people think I did? Did I fail to convey what the brief requested? What would you change?

Hello! I've never asked a question but this is really important to me right now. I took a ~5 month forced break, due to burnout and from college (I still work as an artist though). I come back and I feel so rusty, I have trouble coming up with ideas and I make a lot more mistakes than I used to when preparing a piece and have to re do stuff more than finishing something . Any tips on how I can get back on track/not rusty?
