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

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!

Structure
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
