Been drawing robots like this everywhere...
I hate the arms though, I never know where to put them ^^


You should put them up in a pinchy position. You know, like robots do. That "oh-ho, what do we have here, sum nipples?" position. At least, that's what I always imagine robots are thinking when they do that.

This screen cap immediately came to mind:

Yes, like that robot's right arm. See? She's ready for nipple pinching. And if you don't comply, you get the booby missile.

As you can see, even Mechazawa requires lady groping.



...

Wait, that's not a lady...

Some homestuck bullshit. I feel like I've become a part of the (wonderfully and terrifyingly) rabid fanbase now. Was going for a Cyclops/Phoenix vibe with this.



Fucked up the hand and most of Aradia's body.

This took slightly over a day and was from a few days ago, but whatever.  I drew Elvira.  I didn't use a reference for the pose, but I did need some for the hair.

And I drew this yesterday from a how-to-draw manga book.  I need to keep drawing so my skills don't atrophy.

Honestly, copying the work of an artist you like is how most people start drawing, I see it as totally fine, personally, so long as you don't go claiming it's yours. Once you feel confident enough, try drawing other things in their style, and keep drawing. No matter what your style will change eventually and don't be afraid to throw other artists into the mix like "oh, I like how this person does eyes, I might wanna try that" i.e. i got my start copying this guy




And my style is so far removed from that, but still retains a few things here and there.

I agree largely with avalon but rather than looking at how to draw manga book I'd recommend studying actual manga of artists you like and just buying how to draw books that focus on how to actually draw rather than focusing in on a style

I'm not really using the how to draw books to learn a style so much as to keep in practice and stay comfortable drawing.

Protip: focusing on style makes for shitty art.

Used the back of my pencil board for reference. They're parachuting. I love how Tamama looks like a thug. o3o
