Cultivating Your Drawing Skills
I believe drawing skills are never innate: when someone is a natural, what they really have are remarkable observational skills and the ability to apply them – in their case, through drawing (it could just as well have been espionage ;)). Drawing skills can be cultivated by anyone able to use their minds and hands. There are basically only two approaches to do this: theory (+practice) and observation (+studies).
:bulletred: Theory is a structured, organised approach, learning from someone more experienced who's laid it all out for us in a course, book or tutorial.
:bulletred: Observation is an organic, unpredictable approach, learning directly from the real world around us and gradually deriving principles from it.
Alone, they are both incomplete; trying to work with only one of them would be like trying to walk with one foot. Studying lays down a solid foundation, which remains abstract and limited until observation brings it to life with details and real-life application

Iklaendia's Profile Picture
Just a person making art in their free time.


Sheeta - Castle In The Sky
As title says, a portrait of Sheeta from Castle in the Sky, a Studio Ghibli film.

I was looking for some practice for drawing, and I think it turned out well. Based on this reference picture.
I daresay she looks older here, but probably only because I accidentally drew her face slightly too long... I suppose it works though. Try not to stare too much at the eyes, or they will stare back at you.

Anyways, enjoy, and thanks for your time!
Haven't uploaded in a while, and had to make a 3-D render of a structure for an assignment, so I just thought I'd put this here. Carry on.
Girl Portrait (Colored)
A colored version of this submission. Now I just need to work on proportions... No, I disagree! 

Thanks for viewing!
Girl Portrait
My first semi-legitimate attempt at drawing a person from scratch. Not too shabby? :iconnervous-laughplz: 

I figure some proportions are wrong, but I'll figure that out soon enough, hopefully...
Dark Weapons
Whoever wields that sword in the middle must be either a demon or a god, because that has to be the clumsiest sword ever made :P

A digital coloring test using my previous submission. I worked from right to left, which the quality reflects. That staff... Unimpressed
