Any advice for young artists?
Don’t watch finished drawing! Focus on what’s behind! Anatomy, perspective, and keep sketching. If you have a bad sketch when you’ll color it it will be a bad drawing but if you have a great sketch you don’t even need to color it because it will look amazing by itself.
So keep sketching and work on the fundamentals, coloring comes afterward
