I Am Now Open to Criticism!

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 20, 2017, 6:14 PM


I am in the middle of an art crisis. 
I've been going to an Art Collage with my latest drawings and sketches to show to an art professor. One of the tips they gave me was to be opened to criticism! Though the last time I visited was like in January. Even then I've noticed that I haven't been improving on anatomy, coloring, shading, ect. very much. Mostly because I don't know what to spend time improving on. I'm now a freshman in highschool. I get lots of work, I'm in marching band, and I play softball. There's a lot of commitments and responsibilities I need to keep up on, and when I do get the time to "practice" my art, I never know what to practice the most on.

So that's why I'm asking you, my followers:

  • What do you like about my art? What could I keep in my drawing style?
  • What doesn't appeal to most people and what could I improve on? Remember, you must explain why it isn't appealing to the eyes. And tips are very much appreciated! 
  • Greater leveled artists, do you have any tips that could help me? 



I won't get offended, unless it sounds like you're hating on my art without a reason, like for example:


"Your art is just anime."
Is it because of the big eyes?

"The way you draw a nose is too weird." Well what should I do to improve it?

"Your art looks fine!"
Well thanks, but I'd like to improve it as best as I can.

That isn't constructive criticism. Please give a brief explanation of your criticism on my art.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here are the things I'm aware that could need some improving. Please extend the list if necessary.

  • Shading and Lighting
  • Coloring
  • Art Style
  • Anatomy
  • Lineart 
  • Background
  • Neatness

Yo! I don't really do these, but my friend here is (kinda) new to DA and I thought she deserved some more attention! She recently drew this for me-->  Ellie! by K40ckD0w4
So if you feel up to it, go follow K40ckD0w4 for more art!
You can't "Rawr" if you don't "XD" 

rawr xD ~<3

im sorry i only got 3 hours of sleep 
Can't think of any ideas for the Sake of Science contest. So I may have to do The Absolutes instead. But in this contest, you'll be able to create an Absolute of your own for me to judge. 
How to wake me up in the morning for school: Have there be a tornado warning around your area! Surly that'll get me wide awake!
According to my DA stats, my busiest month was August of 2012, where I submitted 76 deviants in one month. Well yeah, back then I wasn't the best at drawing and I was able to shoot out drawings in like 2 minutes, but I was thinking to myself...what if I were to try to beat that record? And while trying to beat it, what drawings should I produce and how many should be submitted each day?
I just saw a gameplay of OFF and now I wanna draw fanart.
THERE'S ANOTHER THING I'VE NOTICED.

Female animatiors on youtube (most.) usually animate serious, beautiful, or even sad animations, while most Male animators draw silly characters and animate funny animations!
I've never seen any characters with blond hair and brown eyes, people with brown hair and blue eyes, or people with black hair and green eyes. JEEZUMS. 
Wth! I'm looking through my Fav folders and most of my Faved art is missing!
So I was just going through my most recent drawings, realizing how uneven I wake everyone's faces and anatomy I JUST GAHHH! I need a day to myself to just practice anatomy. ;_;
