ANd about the male anatomy, it isn't that hard, but i sense that you like doing girls more then boys........owo
    Thanks...
    Was that supposed to be good / bad thing?

    Yeah, that one picture...
    That's why i must re-draw it soon.

    Now that you mentioned it...
    Will try to re-draw it too, thanks!

    Didn't see that one, which hand is it?
    That 'girl's hand' or that 'only hand'?
    ...or is it both of them?

    I used to draw boys & girls equally...
    but yeah, now i prefer drawing girls since they are good to be looked at.
    Maybe i should just learn to draw TRAP boys or Rev-TRAP girls instead?

    I heard you wanna draw curls, best idea is to look at reference pics.

    I had seen & even printed many characters with curl (they called it twirl, drill, etc) hairstyle for my past practices.
    It's just i still can't draw it properly until now.
    Anyway, that was a big help you gave me. Thanks!
    Gonna try to draw curl hairstyle soon...

    Maybe i will give the new female character a name after i draw 10 illustrations of her.
    Might be as well give her personality too.

    I haven't draw enough for today, so i'll just wait for tomorrow's drawing session before i scan & upload them all at once.

    It may seems that way to most of people; but if your last drawing was 3 years ago, you can tell that you've rusted your own drawing skill.

    One of my ex-manga teacher taught me not to be easily satisfied with my current skill & result while i could still improve myself to be better for each seconds i used to practice manga art.

    Not to brag, but i had reached intermediate level in my past manga class.
    (didn't passed it yet, just reached it... i quit the class after a few months)

    Since i was just a fresh-mid level, there are also many drawing techniques that i haven't tried / learned / mastered yet, like how to draw curls, shading, outlining, etc.

    So, i'm quite sure that i still have a long way to go before i could share what i've learned to somebody else a.k.a becoming a manga teacher.

    By the way, i didn't draw anything today either because of some...things happened.

    Well being a comic book teacher or tutorialist isn't just about drawing. It's also about the practical application of storytelling, scriptwriting, composition, and foreshadowing, and how you show these things to other people so it sticks with them.

    Yeah, i noticed that one too.
    That's why i need to become one manga creator myself and experience all the joy & hardship of it.

    Kinda feels like i'm racing with time considering i'm already in my 20+ , since mostly young artists are the one who's accepted in manga industries.

    But it's better be late & rejected, rather than not trying at all.

    If you want to really get it big, bring some fresh style to your art. Lord knows that Japanese comics don't have enough Batmans or Spider-Girls. Try something like Hokuto no Ken or Deadpool.

    Can't disagree with that, but the problem is i have so much different style than those you mentioned above.

    It will takes more time to change my current manga style to a new one, so i'll just improve what i've chosen in the first place.

    Haven't think of any story seriously since i have so many drawing skills i need to learn, but i do made some short story & 4-panel manga when i was still in manga school.

    So, talk about a little experience... yes i have some.

    -----

    Here's my next works:
    SPOILER! :

    SPOILER! :

    I actually drew her nose, though it seems disappeared after scanning.

    The curl is not really good, isn't it?

    It's much harder than i thought,
    even after i saw those tutorials Cloudy-Chan gave me.

    Haven't feel confident yet to draw a girl holding a guitar.
    I do made the sketch, but that one picture will have to wait longer.

    Here's what i drew a few hours ago:

    Emo Girl
    SPOILER! :

    Somehow i got the Emo Girl's clothes design from a certain dress up game.
    It's a little bit embarrassing to tell it to everyone, since it's a girl's game.
    But, it really gives me so many ideas about fashion.

    Kunoichi
    SPOILER! :

    Well, what do you think?
    Is it logical to draw her right hand like that?
