Well after a long time (a year and a half) away from DA I finally got some time to do some serious work. Hope I haven't gotten too rusty.

I appreciate it thank you, and welcome to DA by the way. Looks like you have good understanding of manga hair and eyes. I see yours still trying to figure out the anatomy part. I recommend looking at real people. I sounds challenging but all great artist started drawing real life. This helps you remember how the body looks and functions when your drawing in styles that alter our perception of reality (anime, cartoons, comics- big eyes, small lips etc.)
Best of luck to you

Eh the advice I gave is not my own (sadly) it comes from artist spanning back centuries, to a time before Leonardo Devin-chi was born. So it's kinda hard for anyone to dispute it. Also I remember what it was like just starting out. Wish somebody would have given me that advise. God I just sounded so old right now. lol

You can turn out great too that's my point. There are kids 13 and 15 years old that can whoop my ass at drawing and painting and they didn't go to art college like I did. Wanna know how they did it? They practice, like religiously. I've met a few of them and these kids scare me. 5-20 drawings a day every day. No classes, no teachers, no lectures, no tuition just practice and time. Your brain takes in info constantly and if you let it then you will learn all you need to in order to be great at art. Practice, time, and observation of what you study. This is the secret to becoming great at art, or anything really.

Real inspirational words. And I just recently got an Art Tips book, and you know what you said about anatomy? Well the books first page said the same thing. ^_^" Coming from two references, I guess I should accept the advice.

Really?! I was just pulling that out of my @$$! Nah I'm joking, you'll hear that advise from all artist who realize the truth.don't stop collecting those books, I myself have over 100 of them. Most of them say the same thing over and over but that is not why I buy them. I purchase these books because they inspire me whenever I look at them. Now of late the old "How To" books don't do it for me any more. So I upgraded to the concept art books. Art of Halo 4, art of Assassins Creed 3, Art of Star Wars eP 1-3 etc. Because of the "how To" books I know the method and technique of the artist in those concept books and that drives me. If your are serious about becoming an artist I predict this will happen to you as well. However, it is perfectly alright if you only do this as a hobby. Either way, if you would like my personal recommendations on some "How To" I would be glad to assist. Just tell me what style you like to draw in (comic, western, fusion, anime/manga) I'm thinking anime.
