waerlkjawe Thank you so much!! I'm glad you like this picture overall >w<
Also no worries about your eyes bleeding upon first glance, while fucking around with the colours and textures my eyes were probably trying to jump out of my skull at the time. There is SO. MUCH. PINK.
But I wanted to do something different and textury, y'know? Glad you like it though o3o~!
Well it all depends on what you do to try and improve. Constant drawing is a good idea, even if you're justdoodling nothing in particular. But you've also gotta try working with things you're not comfortable with, drawing things you don't like drawing, whether it be hands, feet, hair, etc, will help you improve in the long run. Using references is a really good idea too when trying to improve your art. Because by using a reference and trying to draw figures properly will help, and you'll find yourself using aspects of that practice with references when you do freehand art too. I know I've noticed that with my art.
Majority of the art I do now is, more often than not, drawn with a reference because I struggle with poses, proportions, and body position. I find it helps considerably, and even artists who don't have an issue with any of that still use references.
It just takes a lot of practice to improve, it takes a little more than draw drawing what you're comfortable with drawing. You've gotta explore here and there.
Also I apologize, this wasn't supposed to be a tsunami of advice-filled text.
Well any improvement is good improvement, just keep practicing and you'll see results. Though if you think you're art is a bit stiff I recommend practicing different poses, especially ones you're not necessarily comfortable with. Improving is gonna require some time out of your comfort zone, that's for sure.
