>it's not good but it's still a clear step up from your previous work

>>3932621
maybe you should try to draw more fundamental stuff like thumnails and sketches and then make decisions coming from that before you start a long project. That way you'll also be able to put more mileage down while also focusing on your finished work

have you tried being less hateful?

Stop wasting time polishing turds. Instead, practice the shit that you're bad at.
>>
>>3938930

Sometimes you gotta finish your drawings, man, even if you are polishing a turd.

Too many people on /ic/ get so stuck in the grind they never create anything but studies and drills. Half of them even get far enough to realize there's an entire second half of the process that they've hardly practiced at all, because they keep drilling cubes or some shit.
>>
>>3938930
STFU, the other anon is right, you will never be a well rounded artist if you're stuck only on the first stages.
