good job! the hair looks nice and the lines around the eyes work very well! just try to keep your lines as clean as possible and the effect will be even better.

Will review stories upon request. My latest arc: http://goo.gl/KYgsfF

Here's Lancelot Albion. A good friend of mine wanted me to draw this, and I decided to do it today :P. Some errors here and there, heheh.

Mecha!!  Very cool, I like how you're trying out different styles and drawing different types of people/things.  The more you practice drawing everything, the better you'll get as an artist.  Hope to see more!

Wow man, you're really getting good fast.  That drawing is awesome, way better than anything I can do.  You drew it at school?  Does that mean you did it from scratch?  That would be even more impressive.

Oh, and what kind of pencils and stuff do you use?  I bought some of the pencils that the pros use a while ago, but I really prefer to use a plain old mechanical one.  I hate sharpening!  >:(

Hah no I wish I did that from scratch, it's just a reproduction :P. I used a regular Ticonderoga #2 pencil and a .7mm #2 crap BiC mechanical pencil. I'm going to try and get a Pentel P205 .5mm mech pencil, if I remember correctly that's what it's called. I bring in a volume of shonen jump to work from at school, haha. Makes me look like a doofus when I draw from it but whatever heheh :P. It works for me because it gives me time to draw during a studyhall(45 minutes), during lunch(I skip and go to my friend's studyhall, another 45 minutes, or I wind up playing cards with him). I do just little non-referenced doodles sometimes though when nothing important in class is going on :P. For copying just try to focus on the relationships between the lines; that's what I can say. Although, I find that drawing manga upside down is pretty difficult mainly because you need really good perception of space and relationships between lines to do that. I did some upside down drawings today and the results were...okay...you need to really go slowly or you'll mess it up.

Yeah, my old driving instructor used to tell me that practice doesn't make perfect; only perfect practice makes perfect.  Sometimes when I'm not in my drawing mode I'll get careless and rush, never turns out well.

For me, starting is the hardest part.  I tend to procrastinate doing things I actually like for some reason.  I'll put off drawing all day sometimes for no reason, but when I finally start I get in the zone and it's pretty fun.  I don't know whats wrong with me.   ;D  I feel like I need someone to keep me accountable.

So, I guess you use the standard pencil for shading and the mechanical one for the rest?  I've been using a crappy .7 mechanical pencil too.  I have a 2B, 4B, and 2H, but I don't really know how to use them.

I copied down a scale of the pencil thicknesses before in my sketchbook. I'll tell you now, in order from darker to lighter: 9B 8B 7B 6B 5B 4B 3B 2B B HB F H 2H 3H 4H. I actually think i use my normal pencil for sketching and the mechanical for shading and darkening the final lines. And I should REALLY get back to using my 2H for doing the beginning sketching. Always sketch with H pencils, and then ink/do the final lines with B pencils, because they're darker. If you join the mangaraiders skype chat I'll gladly give you drawing assignments heheh *grins.* Just PM me your skype name and I'll add you in to the conversation group. And I understand your procrastination problems, but the root of mine is that I get caught up with doing homework, but I don't want to do homework, so I browse this forum, lol :P.

Lots of practice, I see!  Good job, and I like how it seems you're drawing more naturally.  You're also drawing all kinds of poses/angles.  I love your Bleach drawings!
