On the Issue of Referencing.
If there is something you do not understand, then please excuse my poor English. It's my second language.
The most common notion among young and growing artists (and even some pros) are that (after going through the "I trace to learn" stage)you should start referencing.
Which is right.
Now what most people associate referencing with is to find a picture with the pose of whatever you want drawn... and then copy it directly. They assume that since they didn't copy the accessories in the image or the background or whatever, it applies as referencing.
Which is WRONG.
Reference is when you use images, real props (like a real cat, or a real glass of water ect ect), pose dolls and whatnot to get your desired result.
Like say you need help with feet on and image you're drawing. You find a bunch of pictures of people with their feet out, takes off your own shoes and socks and look at your own feet, ask people to take off theirs so you can study their feet, look at skeletons of feet, musc

I don't know how to input the size setting on my deviantwear, but I would need a unisex M for my shirt size.


I feel I should apologize to my few, but important watchers because I haven't been uploading much.  I do draw almost daily, but that doesn't mean I'm getting much better at it so I think my lack of improvements has also made me reluctant to submit. Regardless, I had wanted to limit this gallery's submissions to only completed pieces of work, but I usually don't have the attention span to complete things now. Also, I think my opinion of 'complete' had changed. I usually enjoy my work most when it is just sketches, it lets me get ideas down faster and explore without becoming too nervous about messing up. That being said, I plan to make a sketches folder and submit sketches I have done.

Hopefully inspiration for more complex work will hit me soon.

I look just like this is real life... honest.

I'm an animator, but I enjoy the act of drawing and painting. I'm not very good at it, but it's fun and that's all I'm worried about. I do look forward to some feedback on my work, if I can get it. Also, I love people who can give inspiring ideas.

I usually spend my time between watching old movies, drawing and watching whatever animated films I can get my hand on. I'm not above sitting down with friends and watching really terrible films either. Call me a girl with no class.
