Just so you know, my medium and the nature of what I draw changes every so often, so if you don't initially like what you see, you might wanna dig a little deeper.

You may find yourself happily surprised.

Does anyone else have one of those crappy "how to draw manga" books?
Hmmm...

So I've met people of very different ages here.
Some of you are in college, some in high school, some have already finished both long ago, some only recently. 

So I'm curious:

What are your dreams for your future?

Mine are to never stop learning how to draw, and one day sell fanart at conventions, all while maintaining my scientific career. 
So earlier I decided that I was always going to draw my responses to any questions I received from a tagged journal. Yea, that was a very unrealistic ambition. 

So soon enough, I'll respond to all y'all stuff.

Except for Lexidus's, I have something special planned for hers.
Was doodling some figures and a homeless woman came up to me asking for spare change. As I gave her a dollar, she looked at my sketchbook and said "that's illegal" and walked away.

I hadn't even added anatomy to any of the figures. Apparently cylinder arms and a very rough torso absent of boobs and all other aspects of anatomy are capable of destroying the minds of the innocent.

Now I can't stop imagining a short nerdy college art student doodling in their sketchbook and a cop just tackles them to the ground and cuffs them for it XD
Have you ever heard something and you had a hard time determining if it was extremely stupid/obvious or extremely wise?
Using: (On Miss Nameless, not yet posted)

Airbrush_Pressure brush: Works good for smoother looking lines --> better for paintings then pen tools. The key to using this brush in the context of OUTLINING is to make the size of the brush small enough to give you defined lines that you can use for even fairly small details (If you can draw a good basic outline of your character's eyes with the brush size, it's probably a good size), but make it wide enough that you can erase and sculpt the lines smoothly without completely removing them.

As well, I recently learned from a video made by Sara Tepes that you can always make your entire drawing in grayscale and then add color onto it by making an additional layer and then using the "Soft Light (SVG)" Setting for that layer. This is GREAT for someone who has a lot of experience with graphite drawings, because it lets you first go with the graphite instinct and focus on shade, and then add color without directly interfering with the shading.

Advice gotten from videos made by Sara Tepes and my own notes. These are just notes I like to leave in my journal because I always remember something better after I write it down, and as well I hope it may help others that might be learning about digital art too.

Hope you're all well,
-E

You're welcome. I think your art has a very cinematic edge to it, very dramatic tones in well thought out doses :)
