I would recommend Glenn Vilppu's timed model drawing sessions on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOtVUHgJqQk draw along and listen to what he says. Then once you start getting the hang of it you can do the timed figure drawing on your own using quickposes.com , hope this helps and keep on grinding!

Also, does it sometimes feel like not drawing for a while, and then getting back into it makes you start drawing better?

Sometimes when I keep tunneling/grinding something that doesn't seem to be working out I feel like I'm actually getting worse as time progresses.

Almost a whole year. I finished a drawing I started late 2017 at the start of 2018 and didn't draw anything else until December 2018. My New Year's Resolution for 2019 was to never fucking do that again. Backwards progression is real.

The reason I think you are feeling you are getting worse is because you are actually getting better. You're starting to see more errors in your work, this is why people encourage comparing your old work. This a good thing though and partly why drawing is so difficult; it also relates to the learning curve if you want to read more about it. Eventually, you gain enough gain knowlege, with that knowledge you find confidence to execute, and eventually with enough mileage you realize how much you don't know and how much is left ahead of you.

Its a sign you are developing in some way, Anon. I beg you not to give up now and this is going to be a constant feeling as you continue draw. Stay strong, Anon, try to work through it.

There are certain types of subtleties that are only picked up over time and experience that this is missing.
It usually isn't very calming to hear "it'll get better later". I understand that.

Should I try another platform? I’ve got a good idea for a webtoon but I don’t even know how to properly make a webcomic.

I acquired passion for drawing in last year of my university study (2014). At the time I had dreams about being an artist, had conflicts with parents because of it and so on.
I had no other choice just to accept my situation and deal with life because I was and still is shit at art to make a living out of it.
As you go older and (hopefully) wiser you're starting seeing the broader perspective on your own life. The shit I've been through last 6 years shaped me as a grown person. As an artist, I definitely have much much more to say in my art then in 2014, and I don't know if that would be the case if something happened differently in my life.
From the job point of view - you can never say in what particular way learning your engineering degree can brighten your artistic mind and workflow. I almost certain it can only be for the better. Mind accustomed to problem solving is what you desperately need, when doing illustration, and that's what engineering can give you, just be smart about it.
For myself - I landed a job as network engineer year and a half ago. This experience was the most challenging and yet fulfilling part of my life so far. I didn't draw much. I have an ok job which pays my bills, place to live, and plenty of time to make art after job and in weekends (though I have a gf who helps with household chores)

Can someone help me find the origin of pic related? I can't tell if it's a charcoal drawing or a heavily textured photograph. If the later, I want to copy it by hand. If the former, I'd rather not.

Plz help.

I doubt you can make those subtle gradients with charcoal without smudging

I was thinking that too, but I thought there might be a certain finessed technique I'm not familiar with. Say using kind of sifter then spraying on a fixative . Then again there would be spatter. Never mind, I'm retarded.

In many ways you improve and in many ways you lose your style.
What are some ways of improving while not losing what gave your art SOUL?
