    Seems like you have some creative concepts. Try doing some studies of some masters and post more stuff!!!!!

    hey, man.

    you should try to copy some other ppls work, i did a lot when i was about your age and that really helped me as it sort of programmed me to do certain things like poses, faces and the like. after u have done some of that, do a sketch of your own and see if you improve. also do the usual, look at anatomy, other ppls works and stuff

    good luck

    hey moonster thanks,just curious are you irish too?
    See the guysin the woods were actualy my attempts at drawing much lighter like alan lee does(lord of the rings concept artist).
    i dont think the pics i have up chart my progression out of really heavy stuff from earlier,but my rendering has definatly improved.

    anyone in praticular you'd suggest learning from,I like andrew jones stuff,so maybe ill try some of those.

    also my updates are few and far between due to my pc uploading issues and laziness.i try and get some up this week.
    l Also need to not resise my pics so small.they dont show up well.

    any way the concept im doing now will hopfully be a continued progress.

    thanks man

    The chair is a bit (actually pretty much) out of perspective.
    But I gotta that your rendering techique looks a little rough.
    Or maybe it is your paper? Nice start so far.

    It seems to me that you are trying to do too many things at the same time. Try to learn the basics before you go over to designing characters or painting. Do more studies. Of course painting inbetween doing studies doesn't hurt, but I think if you concentrate more on learning anatomy etc. at first you'll improve faster.

    Hi! It is great to hav an sb in an early age as yours. And, congrats to u for a good headstart. (I didn't know there is something called 'sb' at ur age .)

    Well, here's my 2 cents:
    I think at your age is more likely about info gathering. So, besides involved yourself deeply into the traditional media. You should nvr neglect ur study as a student . As Miyazaki said in his biography,"...need not hurry get urself into art school.." He likes to encourage youngster to get more xposure and widen ur knowledge in many aspect as you can. And, try to read more. Coz it is very good to excersice ur imaginations. I believe drawing skills would come along while you into practice. (This is what im doing now, practice and practice and practice...)

    But, idealization, originality and identity is something hard to come by with mere drawings and practice.

    In short, widen your perspective of thoughts as much as you can. It could be the fuel that powers up your creativity in later years. And, as many great people in this forum said "Keep working with your anatomy studies", or do more master replica. However, never forget to analyze before you copy.

    Cheers. And Happy sketching!

    this is a really promising start - theres lots of imaginative stuff happening..gotta agree with a lot of people and say not to neglect your observational drawings - that fist study in post 7 is really good... more stuff like that would definately help you in your more creative drawings...

    having said that, make sure you dont stop doing cool interesting things tho - a nice mix of the 2 is definately the best way to go

    also, listen to chenga - he/she talks sense

    Thanks for stopping by my book!

    I like a lot of the designs I see in here, but I feel like they could improve even more with more knowledge of the human/humanoid body. Keep drawing!

    Excellent concepts; rhino091 & Rider088
    I might as well use them for reference!

    Remarks:
    Use more the empty space on the paper!
    Strive to finish the sketch! (The fallen & use paper space so that the feet fit in).
