    I used to draw a lot of cartoons when I was young, but in art school as long as you are willing to learn and absorb what the teachers are trying to teach you, you should be ok and learn it. Maybe that's just me though.

    If you are thinking this may be a self taught thing, then perhaps copperfire's advice should be taken note. In fact, I second the motion. At your age it would do wonders to start now.

    chuck18mp: Thank ya muchly. I appreciate you stopping by ^.^

    Alternative: Thanxx haha I know i need much more practice and refinement, and I strive for that, my problem is my lack of time between school and work, plus I'm usually so exhausted by the time i get home i just crash x.x I've heard of bridgman and been interested in his work, i just never got around to tracking down a copy, which i should prolly do.

    haha I'll do just that

    Liquidspider: Ya, it's natural to want to do cartoons most of the time haha. I've been trying to do more from life, I'm gonna start drawing still lifes a lot more.

    I do plan on trying my absolute best to get into an art school or at least a school with a good art program so this definately will not be completely self taught, but yes, i do realize i need to do more from life to improve.

    HI GUYS. on friday i went to TAPPS to do on site. TAPPS is the big contest thing in texas and i went for art to draw a still life and have it judged. I didn't place unfortunatly, but that just means i need to practice more and kill it next year haha. We had two hours to draw our still and I think i probably would have placed had i focused on just the skull instead of trying to add more items like i did. I'm posting my still life as well as the tat i did for my friend i said id post.

    There's been some serious improvments since the last time I was around here. Your work shows a defined progression all through your sketchbook and I still eagerly await for more.

    Those portraits - Nikki Sixx & Axl - are awesome. Love the cartoony stuff too, it's really strong.

    I'm back!

    It's been so long!!! haha well I'm back because i need to start improving and this place helped me so much before! I'm on a total new track in life, I've been apprenticing to become a tattoo artist for the past year and I'm trying to pick myself out of a lazy slump and go nose to the grindstone so I can be more than just another tattoo artist...anyway I'm going to post some older stuff first and work into the more recent work! thank you all for the great encouragement and critiques up until now

    The portrait of the girl in the brown dress was done in 2011 with watercolor, pastels, and colored pencil. The Deer skull was done last september or october right before i quit school with india ink (I'm still proud of that one, and the portrait of the blonde girl was done earlier this year with watercolor, colored pencil, and acrylic for the filigree

    It was such a long time ago, it’s really hard to imagine. You see the strange ways of
    this life, you never know what to really expect. One day is rainy and another is sunny and beautiful.
    Your tattoo journey was meant to continue, no matter for the rusty sandy corridors of time, you
    went against the storm and you came out as a victor. I think that you will now turn the heat up,
    and post on a regular basis, plus you will do tattoo art on the sudden travelers, and they will
    be grateful at the same time. You and I will draw a lot, and we will draw every day. You
    are pretty close to skyrocket, your skills are surfacing bravely, so keep on going and
    never stop.

    Wow, you are very brave to do that tattoo on yourself. Me, I was always
    hesitant about doing any tattoos, so I didn’t, but I give big respect to those who
    dare to do so. I think it looks nice and it will look great in summer time when you
    appear on the beaches. Your anatomy is pretty good on your last drawings, and you do know
    how to draw faces, you don’t skew them and the proportions are all right. I feels great
    when I see a girl draw naked females. Good job overall, congrats once more on your new
    tattoo. Keep on working and posting, there is a bright future ahead of you.

    LtPlissken: Thanks so much! I really enjoy drawing the female form, I get most of my inspiration from women heh

    Just a quick post on what I've been doing, I started commission recently so I've been busy with those. I have a portrait I did of my friend Katie, drawn using a graph. A sketch of a lemur, cause lemurs are awesome, and a prismacolor drawing of some cute Halloween things

    Damn, nice values in that last portrait! Try and bring some of that knowledge into your other work. The cartoons girls are looking a little flat at times.

    Keep posting
