    Please don't pay attention to this. It's a horrible way to start, and horrible advice.

    There are so many people here in CA.org and not everyone will get the comments they want. However you will always find helpful people if you look for it and there will be always be amazing instruction threads out there if you look! You cannot wait for everything to fall on your lap.. ;p it's being lazy!

    Here's my personal advice to you.

    Anyone can draw. anyone. It's our first impulse as children. it's our first form of expression , personally I learned to draw before I could even express words.

    But there are some steps you need to take if you wish to turn your hobby into your life. If you are serious and commit yourself to it completely , you can do it.

    You must learn as much as you can. Read as much as you can, observe it around you constantly and then practice it. Don't just buy art instruction books because you think you'll work on it one day, actually read them and learn! It'll show you what to look for, what to avoid, and then you must observe. To observe is perhaps one of the most important aspects of your development as an artist. Learn from the life around you.
    And then practice it every single day. Make it a routine. a training..

    Learn about the basic principles and elements of design, learn from them, and make your works stronger.

    Here's a start. This is a series of books made from one amazing artist and even greater teacher Andrew Loomis. He taught me so much and I hope it will do the same for you.

    http://fineart.sk/index.php?cat=1

    I suggest reading them in the following order
    1. Successful drawing
    2. Figure drawing for all it's worth
    3. Drawing the head and hands
    4. Creative Illustration


    Learn, knowledge is key. You'll see it everywhere around you... and then it's just a matter of making your hand do it.

    good luck my friend, I hope you stick around, and show the world your dedication…do not be discouraged if no one seems to be around.. believe me with 89,435 members, someone is bound to look.

    work hard!

    hey I'm new here to0,,,

    and I just wanted to say you that some great painters never studied in an art school so don't be sad..
    just practising and drawing more more more you can become a good and excellent painter ....

    Here in CA I have seen many Sketchbooks of people without art studies and if you look at the first page and you look at the last one,, you'll probably say "omg these is a really good progress"


    uhm sorry about my bad english...

    Somehow your works seem out of focus on a digital(?) camera. But really, you have good stuff here....I'd like to see more than just portraits tho!

    Keep it up!

    Hey Hamtaro69, Just wanted to say your going the right path. I see some structure in your portrait drawings. Keep going at it. Structure is very important when drawing from life. One thing I must says is be careful on the tone paper studies, you don't want to mix your highlights(white chalk) with your shadows, always keep them apart, even if your not blending it. It will give a more realistic look. Make sure you get an anatomy book also, practice is good, but practice with knowledge is better.

    Good work, get cracked doing full figures if ya haven't,
    the longest you take to start doing them the hardest it will get,
    not to say you should stop the portrait work

    Dont get down because people sometimes don't comment, it has nothing to do with the quality of your sketches or whatsoever. People come here to look at some nice sketches, or see how their favourite artists of the community work.

    How many sketchbooks did you commented today?

    Thats why i try to give starters like me, lots of comments, i go everyday looking for sketchbooks with low number and replies, and try to give them some advice, tips, praises, or just to say that i saw their works and i believe they got potential.

    You got potential too, just practice. As a advice, i would say, analyze the word 'practice' and see what it really means. Practicing isnt just drawing or making portraits, is drawing bones, muscles, from photos, life, other artists, sure you can practice doing portraits, but the way you look at your model, and how you analyze it and try to learn from it, is what really matters. Is trying new things.
    You got some nice portraits there, and got a nice rendering too. but i dont see any bones or muscles. Practice them too!

    Holy crap, man, size them images down!

    Great work, though. I think I see some Loomis copies in there... It's hard to comment too much without seeing some more variety, but what you've got looks great. Keep it up!

    ketchook!
