[looks at pictures]

[...30 minutes pass...]

[grunts]

Hmm... software looks like it's limiting your potential - starting with digital art instead of pencil then penning or inking. Which would end with erasing the pencil lines WHEN THE INK IS DRY.

Gon lacks what defines him as a character. Gon's skin is a little too bright and lacks that Tan. He has Killua skin with a little more yellow - Black star lacks depth and shading... look at Black Star's left arm (our right) - it does not look normal.

As for the aesthetics on his shirt... they look like designs on his shirt rather than independent solid metal objects.

And then there's the proportions... I don't want to say anything because it'd be considered rude, demoralizing, mean, and absolutely unacceptable feedback.

(Nothing at all is proportionally correct.)
-------------

Moving on...


Shading isn't smooth - it's jagged and unattractive.

Gon's hair is a little too low and the 'spike-indications' of his hairline go 'too deep' - it also lacks that consistent height.

Gon's face is too round on the right side (our left) and it's too long. One eye is larger than the other.

I can tell you rushed and didn't take your time when working on this - take your time next time... no matter how long it takes I don't want you to stop until it looks almost as good if not just as good or even better than the original reference pictures used.



One piece of advice: Use guidelines - no matter how annoying or time consuming it may be.

Closing note:
I know you may think that these are just practices but what good is practice if you don't learn anything from it.

Heed what I said.

Well it's definately better off than when I started drawing. You'll get better as you go along. Keep on trying. Next time i suggest you use an actual screenshot for your drawing. Remember: reference! reference! reference! Your art can only improve this way. You can't visualize everything you'll have to learn things by referring to drawings.
