Reading your paragraph comment just answered most of my questions. If this is what you get from drawing from life, I need to do that more often. Hold still and let me draw you, classmates! But honestly, these are really neat. Your art really has this professional-like quality to it and I'm already eager to see more.
i'm just wondering because MOST people here on dA were raised watching anime their whole lives, so they think "WHY AREN'T I AS GOOD AS THIS 14 YEAR OLD?!" when it looks like your art style was influenced more by american cartoons and reality TV.
i was so raised on anime hahahahhaha i would literally watch anime from mornin to midnight as a kid... i watched the classic movies like kikis deliv service... tortoro.. castle in da sky... then i watched lotsa yugioh n bleach ohoho.. bleach was my LIFE... and more recently fma and... hetalia... haha..
but er anime isnt exactly the best best best style to start out of??? it's pleasant but it can rly mess with ur proportions n stuff when u are developing your style, specially when ur drawin chibis god they are da spawn of satan for beginner artists it poops everythin up
i advise just to draw from life!!! that is THE GOLDEN RULe...always draw from life, even when ur not at home, like i secretly doodle kids at school. drawing from observation gives ya a taste of wats realistic and when u start doin stylized drawings it would actually look good since u now have a basic understanding of the facial and structural features of a human. just because someone doesnt have an anime style doesnt mean that they are inspired my western cartoons n reality tv lol.. its more of a "oh im gon study this face n draw gestures of this body for a while... ooh now i know how everythin fits together now lemme play around with style ahhhh this is fun but i must remember to use da basic rules of human anatomy!!!" anyway this is long and boring woops
yeah that was my second thought after i wrote what i did (oops)...i guess you already understand at a young age already that it's not....OKAY to draw based off of things that are based off of reality rather than just draw from LIFE...i think a lot of kids your age don't fuckin understand that jesus
it just makes me....angry?? that people are like "wow you're amazing you're so young" when i assumed "uh guys she just knows her shit, you should know your shit too" oop sorry for assuming that you didn't grow up on anime...lol (and it's ok ((not boring))ranting is good when you want to get a point through)
