Hello, everyone! My art usually consists of both digital and traditional drawings, animating, and home-photos--usually of animals, fantasy, anime, and occasional fan-art =3
Requests, collaborations and art-trades are ALWAYS open, so don't be shy to ask!
Also, I am willing to take any and every opportunity I can to become a better artist, so if I draw something wrong, please tell me how to fix it! Feedback is much appreciated.

Original Characters list: thedragoninthecenter.deviantar…

I use Paint and GIMP for my digital art.
I love almost everything, whether it's cool or not~
And though alternative is my favorite genre of music, I love every genre~
Hopefully you've all noticed that I've been adding scenery/backgrounds to my serious digital pieces..
And I'm sure you all know I'm REALLY not good at them at all... I can manage decent backgrounds, and I can draw characters fine.  My biggest issue is making the character look like it's actually there. 
My only solution is making the outline of the character more transparent (since my digital backgrounds don't have outlines) and trying to make the light/shadows on the characters match the background's.
But for some drawings, it's not enough to make it look right.
And it's really frustrating me...

I've been working on perspective a lot, and I think I'm getting better.  But I'm struggling badly with frontal views.  I can't figure out how to give depth to something that's overlapping something else, and I think that's one of my major issues, too.
AND, things that are closer to us are bigger, and things that are farther are smaller.  But if the thing I'm drawing is big on one end and gets smaller on the other, and the smaller end is closer to us, how do I show that??

If any of you can help me, I'll be so, so very grateful...
