Spoiler
Theres a good reference for hands

Also I like drawing muscles just as much as the next person. But you have to keep in mind the anatomy too.
All in all there isnt much depth to draw me in.

How would I go about adding depth? I mean, for future reference. I did that colored pencil ages (like two months) ago, so I'd need to doodle something else to get up to speed on that.
Thanks for the hand reference, by the way. I'll put that to good use.

The way I add depth is by contrast and cross hatching.
Now you cant really do that unless you have understanding of anatomy that comes from just practice.
Cause your just gonna get frustrated adding detail that looks off.
But what I use as an anatomy reference

I have a physical copy I bought off amazon for 15 dollars-ish.
Which is a deal imo, when art focused books are 50+. I also use it build a weight training program for myself so I could get a better appreciation of anatomy too.

Ooh, super thanks. I've been looking for a good anatomy reference for a while.
Anyway over the past few minutes after posting Sefeus I tried drawing Alexma and her scythe, but it just came out looking super awkward because I'm attempting perspective-ish art again. I get the feeling I should just scrap this sketch and try again like her spine is out of alignment with her hips or something..help?

Ugh, my art muse has apparently decided to kick me in the groin tonight. Here's another sketch/pencil lineart:

Yes that is an SS Uniform..why? I don't really know..I just think they look stylish for military.

For the fun of it, I decided to re-draw Aranea Serket's talksprite from homestuck.
Reference:
So yeah, my version:

Horns look like crap, but shrug.

So I made a talksprite for one of my OCs using Aranea as a base..



She looks so grumpy and I love it.

I like the design and all but the lines seem too thick. Also in those last 3 drawings, must be the pencil you are using. You may need to sharpen it more and take care of drawing thin delicate lineart, which is more common in manga.

You barely leave any space to place the features in the face with those ample lines and it looks way too sketchy like so, I can barely see the face.

The gun and the googles look great in my opinion and like the position of the legs of the character. It's quite creative actually, I like it more than the others.

considering I was using one of these:

with most of the tips being blunt-ish, I can figure why the lines weren't going the way I wanted them too.

It was on a whole piece of notebook paper and I was really trying to get out the clothing design rather than the face since it was for an AU roleplay and it's the character I rp. I wasn't giving it that much attention, which looking back now, I wish I had; She would've been really pretty.

Honestly I was really worried about the legs because they look really..off..to me. Ooh, and the gun gave me a bit of a hard time even with the references I was looking at. I agree that it looks the best, probably due to it taking me the longest to figure out. I usually don't draw weapons, so I surprised myself on that one.

I should probably try doing more stuff like this. It was as fun as it was challenging.

Wow they still make those pencils! I think I have one of those some where, though its multicolored :3

It's a very detailed design though something seems off about the legs,  I'm not quite sure whats bugging me about it though, it might be the the left leg (the bent one), other then that I like it!

Yeah I'll just settle with not trying to draw legs at that angle again lol I think the hip is disconnected or something up in there.

Well give it another shot when you feel more confident about it! Its actually a difficult angle/pose to draw ( I'm trying right now and I can't seem to get it right either....)
