Those are better then I could do on a computer. I’m really really bad at digital are. Here are some of my drawings though. I mostly just use pencil. Here I have some fancy goldfish drawings, a betta, mollies, a Roman hoplite (type of sword, I like drawing weapons), and a few other misc.

Here is an update on the serpent. I started scaling the face. The neck however, started getting worse, so I just erased the neck and am starting over with it. I think I’m gonna paint the finished product, get rid of all these erase marks, lol 😅.
I like to paint occasionally however I recently have taken a 6 month break from all art. I work at a horse ranch and there is an art competition coming up with the national organization or whatever for the horse breed so before september I will paint some large horse painting for fun. My art hobby interestingly has never intersected with my snail hobby though. Just never felt the desire to make any snail related art yet, but like the 6 month hiatus I don't ever force myself to do anything, I just do what I feel like. No sense in torturing myself or labelling anything as "art block", I just wake up and do what I want to do. I actually have a very optimistic view on life and enjoy every day having so many hobbies, which often has surprised people after they see my style of painting.
Painting has text, but I censored it to not stir anything up lol. It could be considered offensive, although imo as the artist the meaning was completely different, a tribute to overcoming depression. The censored text is something that could be interpreted as being extremely offensive towards women, however the girl sitting here with her calm demeanor is a contrast to it. Just imagine some slurs coming from a hillbilly. Similar to depression you can be extremely troubled by it, however once you are on the other side and feeling positive again all that seems just like some laughable joke, just some nonsense a hillbilly is yelling at you. This is one of my greatest pieces about overcoming suffering...just my two cents as the artist though lol.
Looks good to me. I tried to paint mountains once but all the small rocky details tend to be very annoying and tedious lol.
I used to say the same thing about people, but you know what they say, practice makes perfect. There are a number of good tutorials on youtube these days. One thing that helped me was drawing it from an analytical perspective instead of drawing what I think faces should look like. The videos explain it better than I can though lol. I still want to get to that hyper-realistic level though.
