It's actually pretty amazing to know that you're this talented at 15.
They say everything comes at a price, I can only imagine what you had to give up to be this good... o.o
It almost gives me shivers imagining how far down the road you'll be once you're my age, 10 years from now... :D
Great stuff, hope to see more from you!

Well I think I wouldn't be where I am now if it weren't for you guys who helped me out back then. Thank you.

Thank you. But I think I'm not that great compared to the other people on this site. But I hope to continue striving. I don't really know what will happen as time passes. But I'll try my best.

I colored the pic for the magazine.

I can tell there's a lot of work into every single one of these pictures, and I love that; however, it seems like you're putting 70% of the work onto making squigly lines for the shades. In some sections, it looks really good, but in others, it feels needless and sometimes even superfluous, aside from consuming time that should probably be spent working out the anatomy and expression better. There's a serious lack of emotion in a few of these, and even if the rendering is top notch, a picture that is afraid of showing itself really goes nowhere. Unless the guidelines actually demand that the symbols featured ARE, in fact, lacking in emotion, try to spend the time and energy that you'd put into overdoing the lineart into making really getting the feeling across with some serious expression and polishing your style to really show how much of yourself you're putting into each picture. I know that in magazines or comissions, this tends to be the biggest obstacle, but it's something that is really necessary to make a picture look great.
It's more about the subtle things going into the image (like a slight smirk, or some wrinkles) that tend to get a message across more.

Thank you Zyphonee. It seems I didn't notice this aspect in my drawings. I never thought about emotion. And I'm quite grateful you took the time to point that out. I do say, I also lack in terms of poses. And I seem to focus all my energy on detail while neglecting the essence and posing and emotion. This will really help me in my improvement. I'll try sketching sometime that focuses on the emotion that needs to be desperately conveyed in my works.

I'll try to think a way to go through this. Maybe looking at real life as a reference. Again I must thank you.

Whoa... in MS paint you say? This is actually good in my eyes, but in yours I dunno. What impresses me even more is the fact how many styles you got going.

... And hey 50, been a while btw. Missed me? Kisses are welcome, yknow. I been a rude little little pussy boy sometimes, but that is just one of my internet faces.

Nice! It's a shame that the underside of the nose doesn't match the viewpoint of the face though. But noses are hard, I know.

About $30 for each pic. It's quite decent money in my country.

I don't think I've ever actually posted on your thread, now that I think on it...!
I really really like the way you shade though, I love the little bristly look, has a very clean, pro feel to it, it's kind of hard to describe.
You're even good at manga!
That panel totally looked convincing, I'd swear it was your main style.
You draw it a lot better than most people my age do, and that's saying something.
I'd just really like to see something original, like some big comic project you're working on or something o.o
Just seems like you're... drawing without any personal goals in mind most of the time.
As in, drawing for others.
You should draw for yourself more often :3
It's those pictures I like the best.
