it looks pretty nice and that its digital , but i do see a tiny bit where it looks just a bit off and this happens to me all the time , is that the middle finger could come just a tiny bit closer to the pointer finger and , they could both be a little bit bigger , and last , is to make the palm of the hand a bit thicker, around the thumb area , also i took some really grainy picture's of my fat little hands , to provide worst reference than ever seen before , your welcome , and if you ever make any changes, to any and all of you're art dont fix it or try to make it better , to fit what ever someone else says it should look like , dont change it to fit what they said , look at what they saw what stuck out to them" that's what will help in the long run , different perspective i my act like i know everything but trust me i dont πŸ˜„ with that i hope that this can help, and short note i love what you are doing , keep on making awesome art. god bless an take care βœŒπŸ˜‰

Hi there, is this because you are not drawing something that gets you really excited, or have not created the right "mood" in your drawing space? Personally this happens to me when I am painting or drawing something that doesn't connect with me - With good music and a topic I care about - hours go by and I forget to eat... There is a line in an old film "Dead Poets Society" where one of the characters is running around shouting "Gotta do more - wanna be more" - this describes my motivation and the feeling in the pit of my stomach when I am really into my subject - try to find it....

agreed, @ Jo Sheridan, i feel the same way, with many of my own pieces to be honest, its so funny, because you sit down thinking, oh! my! πŸ€— i cant wait to start a drawing and you stat just making all of these lines, instead of just thinking, then 5.10.15.20.30 minutes later you look at it finally and you feel betrayed , like you failed you're self or like its just a 1 mistake , then that 1 mistake turns into like 20 more 😲 and then at this point you will feel like garbage, and finally you slow down enough, to realize oh yeah i have to think about, my actions how where and why what it truly is that you are trying to create then boom you have a good piece of art, or at least that's how works for me πŸ˜„ hope that this helps , god bless and take care πŸ˜‰βœŒ

idk, @Smithies. that looks pretty good to me, the only thing that i would maybe change is the highlight on her pupal, also i have not studied my fundamentals yet so my knowledge of that sort has not been sharpened yet but just remember sometimes its just best to take a break from your work like stay away from this piece for a few days and then come back to see with different fresh eye's often you as the artist can solve many of you're own problems πŸ˜‰ go fig, you just some times have to change your own perspective , also dont be to hard on you're self this still looks amazing the way it is. god bless and take care πŸ˜‰βœŒ

for help, all i can think is darker darker darker, and more texture, like grit, gritty grit grit 🀫 the house seems like it's trying to be alive but im having a hard time seeming how? needs depth, also the tree seems a bit to lit up for being in the dark with that though i really like you're art and i would love to see this finalized, that is if you have the to make any changes, also love all the colors, all the trees, the sky the grass, the house its self ect and hey this is just from my perspective so take it as you will and if anybody has anything that they would like to share please do so , im open ears heres a link to an awesome video i just watched you might like it to, i found it pretty helpful so here. https://youtu.be/vM39qhXle4g god bless and take care πŸ˜„βœŒ

i agree i dont see a lot of information out there about all the different tools and media's an everything in-between, and im sure that one could' find some of these things but when you dont know what it is that you are looking for it can be very hard to find much of anything like i still dont know what it is that Disney artists use when they are drawing , it looks like a huge chuck of graphite, but idk what its called where to buy any of it or what it even is , thank you Zoungy Kligge , for bringing this up in the first place because , i was beginning to think that i was crazy πŸ˜‚ but no this is a real thing , ps i hope that someone can help you on you're journey. good luck god bless an take care βœŒπŸ˜‰

Do you listen to Draftsmen podcast? Stan and Marshall often get asked this question and they have interesting responses. They also have a sponsor for mental health called Better Help that they refer people to, because sometimes there are larger issues that it's healthy to address before sitting down to draw. It might just be drawing that's the issue, and if so there's a great book by Urban Sketcher France Van Stone called SKETCH! Which is simply about the joy of sketching and breaking out of a rut, to incorporate sketching as a daily practice. Fast sketches, good sketches, bad sketches, any sketches. Personally I have experienced what you describe. It's OK to feel that, and to take a break if needed. It's ok to make bad drawings and forgive yourself. This clears room for some serious time to have a self dialogue, without the distraction of self doubt. You can answer questions like what do I actually want to do? What would be a good step toward that? It might be "get out my pencils" or maybe "research videos on drawing people from life" Hopefully you can remember to reconnect with the ease and joy of why you draw. And if you want to get more serious about the skill building side of drawing, I wish you luck finding the resources and patience to help you achieve those goals.

ive been in this slump for all of 2021 , i feel ya, and i seems like when ever you do make any progress, you will soon after loose all hope, for you're art, and its future as a hole , making you never want to touch a piece of paper ever again. recently its gotten so bad, to where when even i would try , i would start sweating really bad, and my head would start spinning and i couldn't think straight, not for one second, even my hands started to shake, but then , about a week ago , i just stopped everything, i tuned off everything in my room , and i thought to my self whats really keeping me like this , whats stressing me out so much so i spent a hole day looking around my hole room in search for what could be doing this to me. i looked at how everything was around me , how far is my chair away from my desk, whats on my desk , what direction is my main light source coming from , how much how little dose it make me feel un nerved with the current way i have it, can i change it , how can i change it , when can i change it. well i did and it did help a bit i also moved a big metal locker that was at the other side of my room that was making me feel more squished in than what feels normal to me i also cleared my desk off , aka i cleaned it, i also did some wire management, i moved some stuff away from my desk so that i wouldn't have so many things around me, i made sure to clean the floor and to get rid of any clutter , i put everything away, that was not being used, i then took a brake , then i came back , i pulled out a stack of copy paper and put it on my clip board, and then went on to , proko to see what everybody , was doing at the time , and i saw all of the challenges i then thought to myself, i should make my own challenge , something that i know i could do right well i did one with, Christopher Alaimo, it was a challenge were i would draw something from my imagination , and then Christopher , would draw draw their own version of it , then they would draw something from their own imagination , and i would do my own version of, Christopher's drawing , well this helped a lot because , i dont draw female portraits ever, so i suck at drawing them , but you see when it became my turn to do my version of, Christopher's portrait , i had no choice but to do a female portrait , so i had no choice but to practice and to get better and i did , and i will show you that process. another thing that i did , to put me in the right mental state is i went through every single old drawing that i did to show myself just how far i had come, this helped me so much , and i realized that i have to keep going no matter what or it will have all been for nothing, idk if i can ever truly give up art as a hole because if i did i would never stop thinking about all of the different things that i could be doing , you know? and im not saying that you cant take brakes , all im saying is that you got to keep going no matter how hard it gets and believe i know how hard it can get , my cat that ive had since i was 6. just passed away three days ago , and i mourned his death deeply but i kept my chin up and i stayed focused on what was most important in life and even though i suffered i am still here but even stronger now , so i hope that this can help , because i truly do care and i hope that you do get better, and btw i dont even know my fundamentals yet , so dont feel to bad, πŸ˜… you will get through this πŸ’ͺ also remember that its ok to make mistakes , thats a part of the reason why we sketch to experiment' and to learn, i may take a thousand tries but one will stick and when it dose it will stick great , also at the end of the day as an artist you are you're own worst critic, good fruit for the brain πŸ€” lol also this is just me what works for me may not work for everybody else so just remember you do you the best, with that , god bless and take care. βœŒπŸ˜‰ and here is a pretty good video you might like a bit long thought ps this is just a tiny bit of what ive drawn in this past week, πŸ˜‚ https://youtu.be/4Za-7SMS500
