Just noticed that grrrr face I made... oops LOL. Supposed to be the : x face. I keep forgetting that DA does that D:
But anyway, I forgot to ask.. It's really okay to base your drawings off of other's (styles, etc) ? I always feel like that's cheating or somethin :[

Depends on how you base your drawings off of others. Like for example you can always use the poses of their figures for practice or study their works to see how they work, how they paint, how they get a certain effects. As a beginner you can always use other peopleīs style for inspiration and guidance, just donīt copy whole pictures or poses too much ;) And if you upload the pics write in the description who inspired you to do it and where you learnt it from ;)
As for poses. My opinion is that poses are not copyrighted. I still donīt copy other artists character poses tho. I mainly use fashion photos, stock photos, anatomy studies and photos I collected all over the internet as reference on how the human body should like, how a leg looks like if I canīt figure it out on my own, how the hand and arm could be, how a person holds a gun. Itīs mostly orientation and to correct myself if that makes any sense :)

Most of my works are based on studies, btw. Like I do a anatomy study from a photo and while I do that I get an awesome idea for a pic. Then I finish the study, make a new layer above it and start sketching (change arm positions, make the person hold a gun, change the gender, the legs....)

Damn thatīs a long text........

And thatīs what you should do (and what I do, too). Take them as guidance for what is possible to accomplish with hard work, and for practice- and study purpose:)

Looks like a pretty good beginners tablet!Get it!!!

I also lack motivation lately. Itīs normal, you just need to find something that gives you a little push like a good song or a great artist you look up to :) And I could send you a note with all tutorial sources my stupid little brain remembers, just need to know what kind of tutorials you need? Traditional or/and digital art, anatomy, perspective etc or just everything I manage to remember?

I don't have any artist that I admire or fancy :[. I need to find one.
I want to focus on the female anatomy mostly.
I plan on being a game designer when I get older so I need to start learning how to draw and write better before it's too late :[.
I drew this INCREDIBLE female anatomy picture before and I have no idea how I did so well. I think it was mostly because it wasn't free drawn x_x

I wanna do arts for games (or movies),too one day and itīs never too late :D
And if you donīt have any artists you admire yet just check out who did the art for your favorite games, comics or movies etc. Lurk around cghub.com, they have all the phenomenal concept artists on their front page. itīs crazy O_o
Btw, do you have a graphik tablet? If not safe some money or wish for one for christmas or something. That thing is pretty important if you want to do art for games. Makes your whole life better, too 8-)
And I use reference for most of the bodies I draw, too. Actually almost for all. It needs lots an lots of practice to draw the human body from imagination :)

I planned on buying a tablet. I have one bookmarked.
A friend of mine showed it to me and said it was good for beginners :x
Since I have a job I can buy it easily~
Hmm..favourite artist from video games? That'd have to be along the lines of .Hack or Tera Online.
I'll have to look into those artists :3. I love anime style~
