NEVER. STOP. TRYING.
The one on the left is from February, the one on the right is from 2 days ago.
I can tell im not improving so much, but the fact that made this look so different is that i decided to use a different kind of paper, and differents pencils. I also started drawing the dark part and then add the light (last time was the opposite) and if i had to do another one, it would look so much better because i realized a lot of new mistakes i did in the second one.
So yeah, drawing again the same picture can be tedious or boring (that's why it took me like 6 months to do it lol) but it's important to do that in order to learn new techniques.
When people ask me "are you self taught?" I always say yes, but litterally i taught myself. Im constantly finding mylsef talking while im drawing and saying stuff to myself like "hmm next time, try less light" or "never use that kind of marker in this paper" (sometimes i even say them outloud, like i was talking to someome else). Im really intrested in drawing with grey paper and making it look as realist as i can, so i'll probably draw this a third time.
Last thing, i posted a better picture of this drawing in my personal @guadeeh but dont worry i'll post it here too soon. ALSO im obsessed with editing the background in pictures now and i'll probably do this a lot.
