Hey everyone, it's me Psycho!
This Art Thread of mine was created to record the Art Journey I've been planning to take until I turn at least 25. I know an Artist can always improve, but I've set that Goal to be one of the best at 25 to help me move faster. That being said, from now on I plan to draw as frequently as possible--Every single day, or if not every Single day, every Two days, or at the very most, Three Days. I will record all of my progress here over time. I will write bullet points/dashes for each new thing I learned, as it's easier to record.
The reason I'm hoping to share this with you is because...
I've seen a lot a great Artists here on Newgrounds, as well as sites like DeviantArt--speaking of which, I may be planning on making a replicated thread on that website as well, and I always ponder how they've gotten as good as they have. I'm afraid I don't have anything to offer in return, so I can understand if people aren't willing to help spare critiques, tips, references, motivation, tricks and such...
However everything I learn and draw here will be put up as reference for artists that also wish to improve!
EDIT: Here is a Link to the DeviantArt Thread as well, where I will post the same pieces!
Here's a rough list of things I plan to Draw and Learn throughout this process:

Having all that been said, The Journey Begins!
Just call me Psycho for short.
100 Faces Goal!
To begin, I thought it would be best to draw something 100 times to get better at it. Faces felt like the most interesting place to start at the time. It's only the Introduction to what I'm planning to learn, but it has been at least a little insightful. some of these drawings have been done months in advance, however since I won't be in college next semester, I have more time to draw and do this regularly. Also since I've been sitting on this egg of a project for a while, that also means I haven't been asking for help like I should have. I have almost 60 faces now, but for today I'll just post 50. The names of people I've drawn that are close to me and/or were drawn in person have been removed for personal reasons.
Also, am I allowed to post these pieces into the Art Portal? I'm hoping that way it will be easier for other artists to find me, and help me if they don't mind.
• This exercise seems to be a good reminder and physical evidence on what facial features I need to work on--All of Them.
• There were a lot of mistakes made throughout each face, however because each face was drawn using only one ink pen, it made mistakes a little easier to cover.
• Hatching, Crosshatching, Dots, and Sketchy & Small Scribbled Lines are decent for showing and differentiating the different types of cloth materials for each person, and shading.
• The proportions of the faces are a bit off for most of them--Some heads are too small, some are too big, and some still look too flat.
