Static poses, try looking for the "About to" moment. See the triangle between the crotch and feet? The more equilateral it is the more lifeless your drawing will look

Yeah I’m hoping to fix that with some practice. But not bad for not using a reference

Good job on the study. First thing I’d keep in mind if I was you is not relying too much on outlines, especially the right side of her face which should have the light side against the dark of her hair doing the work of defining the outline. Another thing is value, and I think your tools may have an effect but you’re not going dark (or light) enough with your values. When I squint my eyes from farther away, the entire piece just morphs into one big gray of the same value. The darkest thing is probably the outline of her face on the right. Make sure to look at the reference image with your eyes squinted and judge if the values of light and dark is accurate. Simplify those values with bright, medium and dark values and work from there for much more defined values. If your pencils/paper aren’t allowing you to go darker, I’d get a softer pencil lead and/or get a less rough textured paper. Proportions come with practice and you’re off to a good start, I’d watch the eyebrows since you’re relying on guide lines making her eyebrows attach to the top of her nose and it just doesn’t look right. I’d make sure my guide lines are super light in the early sketch phase when planning out her proportions to avoid visible guide lines like this.

Some days I have a hard time getting in the mode to draw. whether it allergy related or my arm is strained. How do you deal with this if you don't mind me asking
Dennis Yeary
I'm trying to figure out ways to improve my skills faster so i can become better and create original characters.

My rough sketches can be pretty sketchy, but one thing I've noticed is that I can clean it up if I switch tools. If I want smooth lines, I'll sketch with a brush or brush pen and it forces me not to be sketchy.

Ok so one my biggest weakness is what many people call chicken scratches. Honestly I'm not sure how to fix it. Can someone please just break it down to simple steps.

Does anyone know if Mr. proko is going to be doing a animation course if not can anyone recommend a nice cheap 2d animation course
Dennis Yeary
Wouldn't mind learning to draw giant robots and the like

Hey there! Great job! I love the character :) You are doing way too many "chicken scratches", which means, instead of making coherent fluid lines they are messier and timid. You should work on your line quality, it will do magic to your artworks. If your lines are cleaner, you will notice your mistakes way faster and it will make your drawings more understandable. Other than that, try to work on your gesture. I believe @Mike Mattesi has a few videos both on Proko and on his own channel where he explains gesture. You should definitely check him out :) Keep up the good work mate! :)

so I have been teaching myself to draw and feel close to going semi pro and want to get into 2d animation since some my favorite shows are Batman the animated series, cowboy bebop, big o, most ghbili studio movie and many other i guess I am asking what skills do I need to be versatile enough to make said animation?

Hey Dennis, Looking pretty good. I took a look at some of your other drawings, and it looks like you're putting in some time to level up. Be patient, it takes time. I see that you've been working on a lot of anatomy study, but be sure to work on studying perspective as well. As you construct your figures, being able to draw boxes and cylinders in any position form your imagination with impunity will unlock a lot of potential in you. There is also a lot of hidden perspective in the figure, hidden parallels, that if you find them, it can ground your figure. In the case of this figure, be sure to understand where your horizon line is, so that you can aim any hidden parallels to them. If the figure is standing straight (not leaning on a hip for instance) the lines between the heels, the knees, the shoulders, and even the abs and bottom of the pecs, will create these hidden parallels that you can use. Not finding these will leave your figure looking a little disjointed. One other thing I would suggest is that if you're interested in getting better at comic book style drawings, start making comics--even if it's just short stories. It will force you to solve lots of problems, and in solving those problems, you'll level up faster. Good job! Keep at it. I look forward to seeing more art from you.
