  • Shading is everything, I immediately notice that. It would be nice if you shaded them more prominently. Some forms look like they're cut from cardboard. Lemme model some stuff and shade them for you so you can see better. Work on light and shading more.

    Light is coming from right.

  • You need more depths, lighting, and deep color details. When I was an college (BFA in Digital Arts), we would take a photo realistic picture and draw every details from the picture (plus coloring by matching the exact feel) in then we practice with more pictures. Once we did it for a long time, you will know how to achieve the realistic skills for your drawings.

    • That's really an amazing idea... i will do that from now onwards.

  • Use lots of references and try to add as much detail as possible. Shading is an indespensible tool and it's so important for all realistic pieces. You should play around a lot more with different shades of the same color when you're coloring. Things in real life are a spectrum of shades of colors and getting comfortable with that on a digital canvas will help a lot.
    Also pay attention to textures. Things with fur should be colored in differently than smooth things like scales. And consider the contour. It's important if you want to make things pop out to draw and color as if you were creating it in the real world. Everything is made up of many cylinders, cubes, and spheres, on top of that even grooves and bumps. So in your references notice all those details. The most important part of any piece is an attention to detail.
    Good luck! I hope you get good advice and become more pleased about your digital art
    I think you're already well on your way!

    • We are on the same boat... lol but your animations are pretty amazing.

    • I am more of an animator than an artist, I put more effort into the execution than the presentation

  • just take a photo of the 2 things and photoshop it together

    • That's not called as drawing... even tracing is not drawing.

  • Use a camera
