1) Actually Drawing... Too often I... do other things.... and procrastinate drawing... like I am right now 2) Hands (this is difficult) 3) Improving at Figure. Right now my figure only looks decent when I clothe it 3b) Learning to draw breasts that don't look... wrong...lopsided and whatnot. 4) Perspective, Backgrounds and other objects 5) Paneling and Sequential Art
Everything, I really want to become a comic book artist but I never really got around to practising as I thought the goal was near impossibru. So I'm mainly trying to work on humans, especially hands, faces and feet...oh and muscles XD I have a very long way to go
I'm hoping to become a better portrait artist, I also want to learn to create my own characters and do other people's characters in my own style. My main thing this year is to try and figure out a way of making money from my art

I'm a traditional artist, but recently, I've decided I'd like to do a digital piece every now and then~ so I've just been drawing a lineart, and then scanning it and putting it on Paint.net for a fiddle. I will do 1 digital piece at a time and nice and slowly, just when I have the chance to work on it, and when I finish, I will start another. Just a nice lazy practise really I'm also hoping to get better at anatomy, positioning and generally everything else. I'd like to attempt a proper comic someday.
Digital colouring and animation with a tablet. I usually feel bad about it when I have to draw thousands of frames on real paper. Still, it's just what I do, but if I can get the hang of it digitally not as many trees will be sacrificed.
Lately I've been trying to work on opposing poses and solid drawing when it comes to my characters. Hopefully I'll be able to work on things like more technical backgrounds, proper analysis of anatomy, caricature, conceptual development for a lot of the ideas I have, 3D modeling and texturing, and animation in 2D and 3D.
I have to admit that I'm totally lost because I have so many things to learn... But I think for now I'm gonna focus more on poses and expressions since they're some of the most important things on giving life to a drawing.
I'm starting to seriously study motion and animation. Also trying to improve my composition and communicating ideas more clearly through visuals. I want to more clearly articulate my thoughts about characters and situations through pictures.
Adding backgrounds to my work I used to only focus on the subject and when that was done I laid down a flat-color background for my cards and for the graphite drawings I just left the background mostly blank. For most of the cards I made this year, I have added a background and it just adds a bit more to the overall look and impact.
I'm also planning to challenge myself a bit more and step out of my comfort zone. Not sure how though...
Hmmm, for the "stepping out of the comfort zone", if I could make a suggestion: Try drawing people doing everyday things. Like the act of cooking something in the kitchen, for example. It'd also help since you're planning to improve on backgrounds as well.
I progressed VERY MUCH AT 2012 year, now i want jutting become slowly better and better in all-animating, anatomy, fur and texture, shading , plus i want improve my creatures drawings, i want draw them as good as simple animals!
