Vega, it looks like you're just starting, so drawing from life was a really good choice. You should play with a lot of the basic ways to approach drawing to expand your visual vocab quickly. Some exercises to look up and play with: Contour Drawing, Blind Contour Drawing, Cross Contour Drawing, Gesture Drawing, and Planar Analysis Drawing. Keep drawing from life, the subject doesn't matter so much, but try to challenge yourself with a variety of objects that are built, organic, shiny, transparent, hard, soft, etc.

Get a set of soft artist's pencils, usually ranging from HB to 8B. Also pick up a graphite stick or graphite bar and a couple big erasers of different types.

What you did above is closest to contour drawing. You should set goals like doing 3 contour drawings in an hour, or 20 gesture drawings in an hour, etc.

Later, shading can be combined with any of the drawing techniques you practiced, but you don't have to worry about it yet.

If you do all the above and want some more advanced stuff to do let me know! Enjoy and good luck!

"I can post my art in this thread?"

....well, most of my art are just straight up character designs doodles and sketch, or rushed stuff.


Warning! Weeaboo contents!


I traced lineart from an unfixed sketch I made. ....I had a art style identity crisis :


Random demon character. Very very random :


Now, I'm experimenting with Japanese woodblock print-like art style. He's a character for my RPG Maker game project. And he's just a normal merchant! I swear! :


I character for my scrapped game idea (because I lack programming skills to make it close to my expectation) :


uhhh, enjoy? sorry if it's ...very ....weeaboo...

I think you're lying. He has a Pepsi symbol on his hat. What is his sinister hidden agenda?

He is actually the God of chaos-pepsi.

Just kidding, his hat is actually supposed to have a blue and red "yin-yang" symbol, but I screwed up and it end looking like pepsi.

So I had a headcanon if him that he loves drinking pepsi when he's disguising as a "normal looking takoyaki clerk" during the 30s era (he's a god in disguise)

I've been redrawing panels from old webcomics lately to practice expressions. Here are two, one from an Awkward Zombie strip and one from a comic that sadly got deleted a while back (I used to have it as an avatar):
