    any advice

    i would say that I am not as u would say a noob at drawing, i have been drawing for at least 8 years but i have focused on looking at things to obtain my drawing pleasure, but now i am interested in creating my own images and such, i am very interested in anime so im studing anatomy on my own time and i sketch at least 40 pix a day, it doesnt seem like im getting anywhere because my characters are all looking the same!!
    does anyone have any advice for me?

    Watch different varieties of anime and pictures drawn by other people and study the concept in the drawings or go on the internet and look at peoples fan art, art, etc. You should get better after a while.

    THE RULES!

    I'm on my grind in search to find whats on my mind, its one of a kind!

    what about some anatomy tips?
    Emotions tend to lose their strength when put in words, So I prefer to speak only what is absolutely necessary..

    How bout you look at those kinds of "draw your own manga" books and pick out a couple you like then make something out of, I did that it works, but since i'm a noob at it, it took me 4hrs.>.< But it will be easy for you.

    Do what most artist do, give each of your "duplicates" different hairstyles. Now they are all different.

    Well research on different styles, like maybe gettin some manga magazines, or lookin on how there done in different anime films. Whether it's characters with deformed bodies, to ones that have more realistic looks. Concentrate on eye styles, how noses are drawn etc.
    An u say ya need tips on anatomy, well like I said deformed/ realistic body looks, or maybe go for a dbz type look really makin shading in the muscle tones deeply, allowing them to really stand out ina strong way. Really concentrate on experimentin an comparin your pics while drawing.

    Re: any advice

    my suggestion is watching movie, especially anime movie, read any kind of manga.. shonemagz..hanalala...etc
    the last is researching your own style (maybe you already get it)...

    hm.. if it looks the same why do not modify the hair/nose/eye(s)/mouth...and give some tattoo or any accessories and etc..

    hope this help. (^_^)
