some color practice once again. Challenged myself with the color I most despise and can't use well, GREEN!
you can see that I used Luffy's face here hah, I like his face it's so monkey like.
this is kinda an OC, lets call him Frokky

If you are experienced artist and have eye for Colors in art please be free to give constructive critique which I can work on to improve for next works I do.
probably used my tablet first time in a half year hah.

went back to drawing on paper and this time really put my mind into it, trying different things what works what doesn't. like how specific kind of drawing would be best to shade, what part do I want the eyes to be focused on when seeing the drawing, (so basically using values somewhat right. and anatomy)

realized that I enjoy to draw monsters and out of the ordinary characters (probably because when I was a kid I started drawing dinosaurs and characters like crash bandicoot) to me it feels like humans and such have so many rules when drawing, but when I draw monsters and such I realized that it gets me more motivated and creative, because there are really no rules when drawing monster like characters.. I should focus on that now, and then use that creativity later to make my human characters look more interesting and more fun to draw.

this doesn't mean I will stop learning anatomy because it's full of rules. anatomy is great! when you start learning it better and better it really helps your art to improve.
I recommend learning it to every artist out there, even if you don't draw humans that often learning it will give you better understanding how different parts connect and it can make your drawings more lively and you can then use this knowledge to make interesting poses and be more creative with the body in your drawings :)

and this post doesn't mean anything like "I'm back!" I might post something here now and then, focusing on posting drawings here would be another Chain holding me back from drawing what I want, the way I want and whenever I want.'
my number one priority right now is to find my true inspiration that won't fade so I can consider trying to make a living out of it one day. Because the truth is, Drawing is the only thing I have.

welcome to my DA page!

Hope you like my Deviations :) I have so much to learn and I consider myself an amateur artist.

I'm an Active user, so when i complete a digital art I will post it here.

I like to Draw, eat, sleep, surf around the wonderful world of internet and ofc. play Video Games!
I Draw now and then. i should draw something everyday. even a little doodle would be good.
When i was a child I loved drawing a lot. I always wanted to draw. but now it's more like making myself to start drawing. but when I start drawing i love it, it's the best feeling when you are focused on it and you don't think about any unnecessary stuff. It's so calming.
It's like reading a book. (btw I don't read books)

Music: Rock/Metal/classic/game music/Pop/and many more.
series I watch: Supernatural, Walking dead, One Piece, Naruto etc etc.
Youtube channels i love: Game Grumps, Markiplier, Slyfoxhound, Uberhaxornova and the list continues on

Tablet: Wacom intuous5 Touch M
Scanner: I need to buy one so I can start scanning my traditional art.
