Heyo,

This year I want to work on improving some major downfalls in my art. I'll be posting practice studies as well as comic panels/ illustrations were I'm actively addressing issues or attempting something new.
This thread is more of a record for myself and a way to keep me accountable, but any tips or advice is welcome.

Goals
- Get comfortable drawing hands/ make them more expressive.
- Work on making action scenes and movement less stiff.
- Draw men more confidently.
- More dynamic angels that enhance the emotions in a scene.
- Less cramped panels that show off locations more.

More advanced goals- that would be nice to work on, but I'm not going to pressure myself too much.
- atmospheric/ dynamic lighting.
- Extreme perspective/ forshortening.

Always a good time to learn new tricks.

Lets all get better together. 
Arts and Goodies has been a big help for me what with all the resources he knows about.

did some practice sketches tonight- using OC's with less conventional body types.
The plan is to do more traditional sketching this year, since its faster- I think repetition could be helpful.

kicking off today with some awful hands :V
I'm going to be doing hand studies pretty frequently (I wouldn't share them all) but I felt like this was a good page to use to highlight where I need to improve/ use as a starter benchmark.

(using an old phone right now so sorry for the photo quality.)

Thanks for the support btw ;_;
Sharing this type of thing *really* keeps me on track. A forum post just felt like a good way to do it, while avoiding flooding my socials with quick sketches. u_u; so it's appreciated! 

Anyway, today I thought it would be interesting to watch dance/ fighting videos and take screenshots showing the different stages of fluid movement, then trace over them to get a feel of how the body moves. 
I personally found this really helpful, its something I'll be doing again.





Fight scene recommendations are very welcome :P

Studying animation is also a very good process as well. finding stills from animation and breaking it down into shapes drawing through them is a great process. one I recomend for fight scenes is God of Highschool.
