again,great job keep it up
Google :B Search up some tutorials on dA.http://alexds1.deviantart.com/gallery/1604172
I use pretty much all of these when I need to learn anything particular, but if something's not there then I'm kinda on my own. I can draw pretty much anything with reference (anyone probably can) so if you're having trouble drawing something, Google some photos of them, trace the photos in Photoshop if you have to (obviously if you post that anywhere make sure to link back to your source and credit them 'cause asdafas) then gradually move on to just sketching from looking. Draw from life every day, at least once. You'll probably hate it forever and feel like it doesn't help you with anything but trust me, it really really really
does help. You'll learn how you perceive things and that'll help you develop your style subliminally, so you don't have to worry about that consciously at all.
I recently read an interesting blog post
regarding art, you should give that a read. It's pretty inspiring at the same time that it is informative. I definitely suggest you scour the internet for tutorials related to what you're looking to do though, as well as finding some other artists who are interested in similar things as you. If possible, talk to some of 'em, pick their brains and try to get them to reveal their ancient Chinese art secrets (we all have them, believe no one who says otherwise). Hey, you might even make a couple like-minded friends at similar skill level who you can kind of mirror-inspire :> I have a few friends like that and we'll sit around drawing on a livestream or in skype or whatever and be all jabbin' one another about stupid stuff, it's all fun.
ANYWAY YEAH, TL;DR: Google everything.
Here, have a picture. I practised backs, color and dynamic poses today.
