Tommy's blog of complaints.
On this day Thomas figured out that he was an idiot and he was drawing jaws the wrong way all this time.Also, art style practice. I like how the eyed turned out in this one.

So I recently fixed my DS, and decided to play some games just for a nostalgia trip, one of them was Sonic Rush.I tried to shade this one, but settled on having flat colors, because they make the image pop out more, not to mention that my current shading style just sucks.

Oh hey, I remember drawing this. If I’m not mistaken, the next one from me will have a really ugly face, I thought that having nostrils stick out was a cool idea at the time.

I think you mentioned tips about being lazy with art? Well, not being able to sit down and dedicate some time to work is definitely not a must early on, but will be once you progress into becoming a professional. Until then, sketch books are your absolute BFFs. Get Whatever size is best for you (personally I prefer small ones I can doodle in and keep in my backpack/pocket) and draw whenever you see something that makes you feel inspired. Take it everywhere and draw whenever you feel like it.

Well, the problem with me is that I’m not “early on”. I’ve been drawing for over 3 years now and I’m still somewhat of a beginner. Granted, I went through some harsh shit in that time, meaning I didn’t have neither the time nor the motivation to draw. I only really started progressing with art in the last few months, but I don’t really have this sort of passion for it like I used to back when I was taking my baby steps.
Most of the time I have no satisfaction after finishing any kind of work, and that’s one of the bigger problems for me (Back when I was doing Ask-Nokia, I was at least getting that friendly pat on the back in the form of a few notes, but that also gave me stupid expectations.).

As for the sketchbook thing, I’ve downloaded a cool drawing application for the Nintendo DS and it’s really cool for basic sketching and painting on the go. Gonna try to use it a lot once I get some screen protection.

Any tips to stop being so lazy with drawing? I can rarely ever sit down and focus on art for more than a few minutes.

Now here’s one I’m REALLY proud of.
I painted the first one and was kinda, sorta proud of it because it taught me a lot, but I decided to repaint it from scratch (This time on a single layer.) a few days later, and it resulted in the lower picture.
This much improvement in less than a week, pretty good for my low standards.

Five minute gesture drawings from reference (A few are from imagination.) I’ve done during the week before this one, I’m lazy with art.

You guys should totes check out this site, tho, it helps a shitload with learning art.
