Everyone is complaining about how they can't draw hands, and I'm just sitting here, hands being the only thing about the human body I can draw.
Yeah I like to think I can draw hands at least half decently, feet though animal or human(human worse) they confuse me and so are male bodies xux
Oh and ferals are so hard to draw now!
For those who don't know, there is a wonderful tutorial on how to draw hands here.

I will gladly welcome the skeleton king.
Seriously tho, I usually use soooo many references when I draw and I still can't get hands right.

I find it makes things easier to draw when you just get down the basic "polygon", or just a mashup of shapes in a manner that sorta resembles the target object, then trim it off with an eraser until you have it "carved" to the shape you want. It's how I do most living things.

Seeing people with fancy ass tablets makes me jealous
Like my tablet is like 6 x 7 inches and my pen tip is down to a nub. There's even scratch marks on my pad due to overuse, I've had it for almost 2 years. I just want fancy equipment. Maybe I should look for a job after I finish school in 2 weeks but again all that money will go towards college :/

I live in perpetual fear of the chance that I only am the only person that sees my art as what I intended it to look like, and everyone else just sees it as some scribbles. Like how when little kids scribble on paper and say "Look, a waterfall!", but I don't have the excuse of being that young. The little kid see it as a waterfall, but only that little kid sees it as that, and everyone else sees the scribbling it really is.

I hope I can post this here
I just saw an artist get mad at another artist because they both had red colored fox fursonas. Like #1 nobody owns the color red chill your gills. Plus if tons of people are picking the same species then what do you expect?

The "undo" button stopped working in GIMP (both the button and ctrl+z) in the middle of a drawing.

That's fun.

I spent a long time on a drawing just to realize that it doesn't look the way I want it to. :/
