Hi there! :) My name is annki. I'm 31, from Germany. Through my life I tried a lot of diffrent kinds of art. My favourite since early childhood is still drawing. I also do like watercolour painting, digital painting and photoshop compositioning/collaging. My main subjects are animals and fanart - recently I got into portrait drawing. For a long time I admired artists who could draw accurate faces and was afraid of failing trying it myself. But it's fun and I definitley want to get better at it.  What I am struggling with in general is that I still don't know my style. At least I don't see it. And I don't know how to draw hair and fur. The process seems confusing to me. Before coming here I already followed courses by Aaron Blaise and learned some animal anatomy.

Here is one of the major drawings I made last year. I'm a newcomer and this is my first official post on this platform, but I don't know where I should improve from here. So some critique would be helpful for more artworks moving forward :) This was a school Halloween project based on the theme: "Headless Horseman"

Hey, @JD! If you made a school project last year, I’m assuming you must be very young! 😄 This is a pretty cool drawing, and since you’re looking for advice on next steps, I’d recommend perhaps you could take the Figure Drawing Fundamentals course, in case you haven’t already. Best of luck in your art!

Hi everyone, my name is Orshee and I am a Transylvanian (Europe) based children's illustrator. My degree has nothing to do with drawing. It started as a passion in my childhood, and today I make my living out of it. I got pretty confused about who I am and where I stand as an illustrator, and also, I have a huge thirst for improving my skills, so here I am. I am looking forward to improving my skills and getting to know you all!

Josiah Bloemberg
Hello! My name is Josiah. I'm a marketing & design professional, but I've always had the secret desire to be an illustrator. For me, art has always been one of the ways to bring my imagination to life - to take something from my head and communicate it outside. Most recently I have been trying to improve my understanding of anatomy, starting with the head and face.

Hi everyone! My name is Katti. I am a tattoo artist by day. I love helping people feel more comfortable being themselves. I included some of my recent tattoo work and my favorite sketches from my sketch book. Drawing has always been my favorite coping mechanism. I’ve followed Proko for a while, I’m so excited to learn from everyone here!

Lee Bates
Hello. My name is Lee. I am an illustrator from south west uk. I recently gained a degree in Drawing from Falmouth University. I love urban sketching, drawing dinosaurs, human and animal anatomy and drawing from imagination. I use drawing as a tool to learn about the world around me, which in turn helps me visualise strange ideas I have. Here is a little bit of my work. It's fairly varied as I find it very difficult (and limiting) to stick to one thing. Looking forward to becoming a part of this community.

Cool drawings Lee. I really enjoy your drawings on the brown paper. It's such a nice way to think more actively on light. Keep up the good work.

Everyone here is so talented! Hi 👋 My name is Emily. I like to draw and paint with watercolour. I like to tru and draw a mix of cartoon and more realistic stuff. My stuff still needs a lot of work. I've been struggling a lot with motivation so I'm hoping to be able to get stuck into the community and find my mojo again! Here's some of my better stuff 😅

Hi ✌😁 there Emily . so real quick this reply that i am about to send to you is a copy of a reply that i sent to some one else that had just joined Proko i saw you're post and i thought that this would help everything that i stated in this post applies to any new comer artist so with that out of the way . my name. is JDN short for Jadon. so i just went through all of you're work to get a better understanding of you're art as a hole and to see where i can offer any of my knowledge . see ive seen you're art but i have to get a even better understanding of it myself that is or at least that's the way i see it anyway. with that said. i can see a lot of good progress as it is . that you have made compared to just making marks. from the point to where any artist will always begin at now as i said before i do want to re look over all of the art that you have posted so that i can get a better understanding of what you have best as it stands . and what needs a larger amount of work before you get better . you know what im saying ? 😄 ok . so my stock advice is from what i gathered is 1st to observe. which means look around you think watch the best of the best and realize that they were where you are right now in some way shape or form and use that to your advantage . and some times try to get a understanding of they way they see what it is that they see . and try to practice a bit of it here and there to see how far you can get. . 2st to practice which means repetition over and over again. and i feel that even though it looks horrible most of the time. 😄 i cant believe im saying this but its totally worth saving every bit of it even if you think that it looks like trash and nothing else its worth it because later when you get burn out from all this work. its when and only when you look at you're own art work that you see how far you have really come trust me if you take anything away from this at all SAVE ALL OF YOU'RE ART please and thank you . you will not believe it when you it latter on 👌😉 3d never let anything make you think that you're art is just bad its not even when you know that you could have done better. but you didn't even though it seems like you failed . let me reassure you that just because you slip up once in awhile . it dose not mean you are done. its just apart of learning . you must fall first in order to be able to get back up again right ? . the only way you get better at any skill such as art is to make mistakes . art is a skill not a talent remember that. 4th you are who you are so dont think that you have to change who you are at the core just to get better. its not hard to think that you are the problem when you are told that you're art is ok or that it could be better. you make the art that you make not because its a part of you but you make the art that you make as a representation of you're personal perspective . and you're self maybe a thought that you had. a image a story a emotion a dream anything. the thing is that its how you see it. that's what makes everybody's art unique in its own way at the end of the day.. which adds value to you're art work as a hole no matter what . and 5th . being me telling you . that i am not the best artist ever and i might never be i am not the smartest person ever . but with all of that said . i dont need to be . to know these things and neither do you. nor anybody else. and being an artist means never ending learning and expanding upon what you already know. all artists are always learning new things rather if its things like learning a new short cut new ways of creating there art or just new ideas in general even the best of the best we are all stuck for ever in this loop of learning with everything witch i think is kind of funny 😂 we are all students. so just remember that its ok if you dont learn as fast as others we all have our own flow in witch we do our thing . and that's my advice to you or to anybody that is curious. i hope that this helps please let me know when you get the chance if you did or what you're thoughts are i love to see what others have to say always . i hope that this helps and . god bless and take care ✌😉
