I've been struggling to get back into art lately. Finding the motivation to stay committed to it has been difficult in the past. I even put off making this thread. By having other people be aware of whether I am actually putting in effort or not, I hope that I can stay motivated. Any and all feedback is very welcome.

I grossly underestimated the amount of work this would take. By the end, I just wanted to get it over with.

The proportions were also very difficult to figure out, so there's probably a lot of inaccuracies.

Day 46:Princess Maker 2 Mercenary ending
It's finished. I don't know what the fuck happened. I thought this would be easier than what I usually do, but no. Every single part except the shading was a massive struggle. I had to trace over my first shape form with lamplight because the amount of erasing made the page too dark. The face and head was probably the hardest part, but the legs definitely weren't easy either. I tried my best since I like this game a lot.

This whole thread is really a psychological experiment in motivation and time management.

hey your drawings are really nice and it is really cool to see a record of your improvement! looking forward to seeing more in the future.
I know it might be hard to pick up a pencil sometimes, but here is a thing I heard somewhere - think of drawing not as making a finished product, but as a record of a series of thoughtful decisions, like an exercise, it’s a pursued skill. always carry a sketchbook with you and draw everything.
Also the end of the semester can be a hectic time. You got this. but no matter what keep drawing!

How's your drawing going? You haven't made an update in a while.

I'm back. The end of the year was tough and I was burnt out for a while. I'm going to start counting by the number of drawings because days clearly didn't work. Started this one two days ago and abandoned what I was working on a few months before. I only used a 4h and 4b, i'm done with number 2s.

good job anon
you're doing great and i'm not going to say i am better
but maybe focus more on how you draw
start building shades out of shapes instead of lines
it will make your drawings more lively

I still don't know what drawing shades with shapes means, but nevertheless, i'm happy with how something this elaborate turned out.
