(I'm terribly disappointed at how aggressive some of you people are towards starting artists and am remembering why I haven't checked on this site for a long time. Don't you dare wonder why pretty much everyone who used to frequent this site left with all this aggressive bullshit. Any site is bound to die and better off that way when the last few people left only do pissing contests of who can be the biggest asshole to new members.
Also, big thumbs up to RMD for being the only decent person in this thread and showing some support to a starting artist!)
So! Hosscat! Sorry I'm months late joining the ball, but I'm going to go ahead and point out some things I've noticed and hopefully you will see this.
Yes art takes a lot of patience and work and most people start early, but I have friends who picked up drawing past their mid twenties so you're not the only one in this regard and it certainly doesn't mean you won't learn, improve and kick ass. Age doesn't make good art; dedication and practice do.
Also, if you had only been drawing for three months when you first posted these, that's actually pretty impressive considering how most people start off copying Inuyasha images for the first couple years before they even try doing their own thing and still strongly rely on that as a crutch for a while. You need practice, yes, but I can easily tell what is what in your pictures which is not always the case with beginners.
You anatomy needs work but it's identifiable, which is a very good start. Don't be afraid of looking up references, seek them out! If you can afford it go to live model classes or organise drawing sessions with friends!
You're learning anatomy so these will all be a tremendous help for getting proportions right, knowing how what works and what goes where, and it can help with figuring out some fore shortenings.
Your perspective needs work as well, but perspective is a fickle bitch so it's normal if you're struggling with it. I've been drawing for over 14 years and still have moments where they make me consider throwing my tablet out the window. If you want pointers to help you with that I can show you to a fantastic tutorial.
