I was going to review my french and linguistics but then this happened instead.
Except it’s 3.30am so it’s half-assed. //shotdead
But hopefully people will find this of use. \o/ Sorry this took so long, Anon, and I hope it answers your questions.
IJN Nagato, 1944.
Somebody wanted shirtless things and since I didn’t draw something like this I thought I should try（‾◡◝）
and I was wrong
THIS IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE POST

Centaur in a post-apocalyptic world
“The more I learn about art, the less I am able to draw.”
-Because the more I realized I don’t know.
About two years ago, I read a tutorial which said, “Try to avoid repeating your mistakes. The more repetition you put into something, the more ‘cemented’ it will become in you drawing-method.”
Those words have haunted me ever since. I’ve heard similar phrases in other tutorials and from other pro-artist as well.
But what are my mistakes? How can I tell if I’m doing something incorrectly? –Especially if it looks right?
Sometimes I look at my old drawings and they seem to have more character than my newer drawings.
This does not mean I’m not proud of the progress I’ve made…
…I just wish I could learn these ‘magical skills’ the pros seem to have with ‘drawing their characters the correct proportions,’ in ‘multiple poses,’ with ‘lively expressions,’ at ‘the correct angle of perspective.’
-Without fretting that I’m going to mess-up every single time I make a pen-stroke on paper.
The art was created by this Anon.
