I found your YouTube channel a couple of days ago and have been binging your videos every spare moment I get. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with the beginner art community. Really look forward to watching more and following your art works.

I'm so glad I can learn from such a great artist such as Instebrak! I'm excited to learn and grow as an artist! I've only just joined the community, but I'm already learning so much from Instebrak and the other members. I can't wait to see what the future holds. :happybounce:

I just found you on YouTube and checked out your work and .. It is amazing! You inspire a lot!
I am a beginner artist, in a sence That I have been drawing for years but never a actually doing it seriously, and now I am super motivated to learn and grow as much as it is Possible and Become better! The problem is I do not have anyone to talk about art about mistakes and improvement. That is why I am searching for someone to help me. Maybe If you have time to reply on this comment, I would like to know what would be best way to find people to Whom I could talk to. And maybe get some Advices. :)
And I would be SUPER duper thankful If you Could check my gallery and see my drawings and maybe give me some Critics.
Wish 'you all the best! <3

I'm not sure whether you still read your DeviantArt comments, but I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all that you've done for my art. I painted over one of my paintings from last year and it improved hugely. This is it right here in case you wanted to see it:Nicola 1 
Again, thank you so much for everything. I know I've got a way to go yet but I'll get there thanks to you! :D

Beast Teacher, I am humble student watching all of your videos.

Hey, I love your videos on youtube and I heard there was a class. I'd like to improve on my artworks, and participate in some of your challenges. I would love to get some feed back on getting better. ((>_<))

Hi, I found you over your YT Channel. Great Tutorials. DO you recomment any DV Groups? I always seek critism.
Thanks :D
ShirosDreams Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist

I'm not Istebrak but the wonderful artist does have a Google+ group revolving purely around critiquing artwork. The main goal of the group is to progress and improve together. Though I'm not sure what style of art you do, I definitely recommend taking a look at it if it's in your art forte.…

Please make sure to read the rules before committing! It's listed under the 'About Community' section and mentions what is or not allowed to be posted. Have fun and be prepared to share your own thoughts to the other artists in the community!
optimismeBoo Featured By Owner May 31, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
I need some help in posting for the 14 day challenge. I'm not sure what's the rule ro wher can I find info on that too.
ShirosDreams Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Hi! I'm so sorry for the late reply! I'm not actively participating in the community, so I'm not sure how to go about posting for the 14-day challenge either. Unfortunately, I'm certain there isn't an actual written document which lists the individual rules/steps for the challenge. However, if you just take a look at what the others are posting on the community page (i.e; portraits)- you can do the same, post it, then ask for the rules and critique in your first post! I'm sure you'll receive your answers there :) 

Additionally, Istebrak has covered the topic in some of her critique videos on the 14-day challenge portraits, so you could reference to those as well! Istebrak also has a Facebook page which you can message her on as well!

Good luck!

Hi Shiro, thank you very much for your answer. I appreciate this.
If I have time I check out this group.
ShirosDreams Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Yay! You're absolutely welcome! Definitely check it out! Everyone on the community is extremely kind and honest when it comes to critiquing! If it caters to your forte of art, you will definitely improve through interaction with the group. Have fun!

Do you have a brush package I can purchase. I bought the $12 one?

And, I appreciate you and the gift of art you so unselfishly share (Tutorials).
bluedudemarble Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2017  Student General Artist
Awesome tutorials. 

Thank you so much for all the work you do. 
Anniedorable Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you for your tutorials :) I just got Procreate and attempted digital art for the very first time. Still so much to learn! You're the best! I want to draw like you 💕

Upon encountering your video on Youtube about why my drawings suck, I wanted to give it the shot I always longed to give but could not because of being busy with other things such as school. Your points made sense but I need more detail, so I'm going to be watching more of your videos. Anyways, let this be the beginning of the solution for the "community" aspect.

Nice to meet you.
tsukiyoma-kishun Featured By Owner Edited Jan 19, 2017  Professional General Artist
Infrequently having your youtube videos playing in background while drawing, always accompanying low music in VLC. Doubting a bit today, like "ever reaching goals..?" and your stream starting simultaneous with copy of Borderlands 2 OST. Wink/Razz Thinking computer dying, shut off VLC and *today's Critique Hour had same music. 

Never into coincidence or luck, but quite amusing and quick snapping into better feeling. Lifetime fan! :D (Big Grin)

Mm, also giving thanks for amazing resources\practical examples && articulate honesty. Not often finding both in one place/artist, let alone used together, haha.
Istebrak Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2017
Ahaha its a sign! I love that OST.  Thank you for your support <3 
Israawilldoit Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2017  Student General Artist
Thank you.

Another person who followed you here from your fantastic Youtube videos. Thanks again for the wonderful guides <3
90sCat Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
I've been feeling really down about my work lately- but as luck would have it, Youtube recommended your videos to me, and watching them has honestly helped me so much. Your words of  wisdom are super inspiring, and you have such a relateable personality that it really makes learning from you all that easier. When you talk about yourself as a young artist, I see a lot of my younger self in the stories that you tell, and it's so meaningful to me.

Thank you so much for the time and dedication you've put into your videos. You're really doing a great thing and touching the hearts of millions of artists! :)
