So I’ll try to explain one method I learned when I went to illustration course. It works for any drawing style and technique. Though, you will need to search through a lot of books/resources, but I see that it’s not new for you
First of all, look at any of your pictures with background. I believe that there are a lot of things you want to improve (because the real artist is always a bit unsatisfied). It may be anatomy, composition, furniture, landscape, etc. So the key is to study each of the parts of your artwork.
1. Still life
Some may find it boring nowadays, but it’s a really important part of any art. Search for good examples, try to find what makes some of them ‘live’, what composition works better.
Take one object (only one) and draw it. The key is to make such simple composition interesting. Use the light source and background.
Make a composition from multiply objects of different shapes and forms and draw it. ex1
Same scheme here. Every part starts with study of examples.
Here, find more about perspective. Draw a real interior (your room, for example). Keep in mind that there are no empty places in it – a blank wall is not completely blank, it has shadows, wall paint, cracks, etc. Study different textures and materials. Draw a fantasy interior. It’s good to find the description in a book and draw it. ex2
3. Landscape and architecture ex3
4. Add a character in the interior and landscape. When you add characters, don’t forget about the background. They should behave in it. Animals go here too. ex4
Try to draw a dialogue between inanimate objects ex5
6. A group of characters (3-5) ex6
It’s just a brief explanation, so I still suggest showing your process for someone qualified for more advice. I encourage you to find your own examples in the style you like!
If you want to improve in anatomy, I totally agree with other suggestions about using books. There is a good online resource www.posemaniacs.com/ Anatomy is where quantity will slowly get you quality. Try such challenges as 'Draw 50 hands'.
Hope it will help you a bit and keep drawing."
The Tainted: Project 19
It was dark… so dark… a black abyss of nothingness that of which is my soul, my being. In this place, there is always the faintest of lights, but I can never reach it, for it always fades away as soon as I get close…
My eyes opened, and I was thrust back into the real world once more. The steady sound of my heartbeat and breathing was all I heard, if I listen close enough that is. I sat up and blinked away the feeling in my eyes until my vision cleared up, looking around I saw I was still inside the office building I had taken refuge in last night.
The morning sun shone in through broken windows of the room, bouncing off of the metal tables and lighting it up, showing scattered old document papers and broken glass and smashed light bulbs. The cubicles were all disrupted and the small walls had fallen to the floor, showing desks covered in dust and broken computer monitors.
The smell of mold permeated from one of the bathrooms prompting me
