Drawing one point, ...   (Brittany Beasley)2.1.2015
Drawing one point, two, three isn't a problem for me. I just need the patience for the whole details, lol. I tried this and it came out a little differently,​ (I put the horizontal line lower than yours), but pretty good. The challenging part I think is adding all the details, people, and drawing things in like birds eye point of view.

I find this video ...   (uchihanhuja)18.1.2015
I find this video really helpful but I recently discovered a new sort of problem.. I usually do random sketches of anime and manga character s and some turn out really good, at those times I try to draw some sort of background but I never come up with a good one and in the end while trying, I spoil the drawing... How do you get a good idea to what type of place or background should you input to your characters?​
