Easy steps to improve style
So a ton of folks have been asking "what programs do you use? I know theres an FAQ on your front page but I still want to comment!" 
First off, art programs are a tool that helps portray your style. They don't magically make you better, but are something to add on to your drawing. 
Paint, graphite, pastils, watercolor, cel shading, they're all different to express. So it will vary from different individuals who know how to use the resources efficiently. 
But here's a list of the key points to improve faster. 
Know your weak points.
Most of us don't like getting critiqued, especially when its something we don't agree on. However, whether it's from someone you don't know, or even yourself, take a moment and figure out the flaws of your drawing. 
Is the anatomy too exaggerated? Is there too much lighting? All of these things must be decided on your account. 
And getting advise from a friend or family is never a bad idea, but

PE: Developing characters, stories and manga
Hi everyone! How's your day going? :la: Yesterday I shared with you the background tutorials that I considered to be useful to your development as artists and today I'd like to show you a few tutorials that have helped me greatly to develop my characters, stories and storytelling skills thus leading to better results while creating a manga comic. I hope these will encourage you to keep working on your mangas or to give it a shot if you have never tried before! Drawing manga can be a very demanding and sometimes frustrating task, but it's also a very rewarding and nourishing experience that you shouldn't miss out on! Do your best!
These are not the only tutorials on deviantART, it's just a selection of the ones that I've found more useful in my artistic development. If you know of any other impressive tutorial that you think should be listed here, share it in the comment section and I'll include it to the list!

Promote your art (on DeviantArt)
So you have your awesome art project that, you feel, the whole world needs to see? So you've signed up to be a DeviantArt member. Because, DA... that's where all the cool artists reside... isn't it? So you've posted your art. You've been here for a few weeks, or perhaps even a few months or years. But despite all your efforts, you still get close to zero comments. Why? What went wrong? It could be your art is really bad. But most likely, you're not approaching this subject the right way. Becoming well known on DA doesn't only rely on your art skills. It also relies on your marketing skills. And let that be exactly what most aspiring artist forget about.
Here I listed some simple tips & tricks that will help you get out art out there, and become better known on DA. 
My background on this? True... I might not be the most famous artist out here, but I do have a strong background in websites and webmarketing. Most of the things listed here, I've learned from

I tried to kill myself a few months ago.
I'm sorry.
I doubt anyone is reading this.

I'm still drawing - but I lost all my skills in digital drawing. It's terrible.
Sorry, I don't know what I'm going to do with this account. Uni work is very heavy.
I hope I can go back to digital art some day.
