Tren a las nubes by Cansounofargentina

A rather hard capture isn't it? I admire the fact that you captured this with almost no speed blur, and I get that feeling that I'm act...

July by Ex-zaria

For a fast drawing, this is really well done and has a nice concept. The lighting is nicely done and so is the shading. There is nothin...

I don't feel the need to change my ID and Avatar. They're both alright.

Okay not madness but I can't help putting an alliteration in the title.

Anyhoo I've been only posting 1 artwork per month because I'm bereft of inspiration frankly. Back in the day I used to know these pretty girls who'd I'd draw, like, all the time but now that I'm more cynical and lonely I haven't had the chance to meet a nice girl to make my model.

It's summer, well end of summer in my place at least, so it's hot. The weird thing is that in the middle of summer, like 1 or 2 weeks in between there were heavy rain showers and thunderstorms. That was my best experience in summer for its entirety to be honest because Summer classes bogged me down to the point where I don't care about studying anymore. Of course, that's not entirely true but my Philosophy class was extremely dull that any attempts of making the class lively was shrugged off. The teacher is monotonic, my classmates are as sleepy and tired as I am. I feel this is what sucked all the inspiration out of me.

Moving on, since this is an Art Site, I feel I should talk about my art. I feel that I need to make more but at the same time I don't want to because of art block. I guess this saturday it's time to grab some cheetos and coke, wipe the dust off my tablet and binge watch on speed painting videos until I get the urge to draw something random. Works every time.
Zootopia probably would be of influence since I watched it recently and at the end I came to the horrifying conclusion that I might unconsciously be a furry. Let's not dwell on that and proceed to think how to gijinka the two lead characters.

Some... Thing.... by mchectr

My first attempt at that one portrait that looks similar to this.

Yes fucking hell her eyes are fucking cringe worthy, her lips came out wrong and her head is misshaped/. Had to restart the entire face.

I was invited to a debut the other week but I couldn't come because I had a job to do at school and it's about a 5 hour drive from where I live.
So I had to compensate and decided to draw the debutante and give the portrait to her through a friend.

I'd say I did a good job, compared to my previous attempt on making it which is in my scrap if you're curious to look into the monstrosity I created prior to this.

Also I swear my next artwork will be a guy.

So when making an artwork, which part do you do first and which is the last?

For me it depends whether I do a digital painting or a cartoon styled artwork. For paintings I start with the nose oddly enough and work my way on the other head parts until lastly I do the clothing.
Ever had a point in your artistic career or hobby where you realized you've hit a ceiling where your skills won't improve further and you're stuck drawing basically the same thing over and over again?

I've been feeling that way for the past 2 years now and my lack of inspiration exacerbates things. So right now I just churn out samey portraits of girls at monthly intervals.

How do you get past such flats?

On a much lighter tone what's your favourite drink to chug down as you make art?
