    Hi, I'm a high school senior, confused about what I want to do with my art/life. Here are my sketches, up for critique.

    Mostly life drawings, some drapery/pants studies, goofy cartoon faces, some from photos and videos, skulls from still life, a big red self-portrait, and some imaginary faces inspired by a TV show.

    Thanks for everything you've got. Keep it constructive, I says!

    I think that you should definitely pursue art.
    The obvious options would be to follow the educational path of animation or illustration but you could also branch into fine arts, art history, etc.

    Your drawings show definite potential, especially your face and drapery studies.
    A few questions:

    i) How much time do you devote to drawing faces?
    ii) Is the last picture inspired by Tegan and Sara?

    Well the only thing I can tell you is your art is great. I would have to agree with the post above.

    Well, I guess I can't deny it any longer, I'm a forum kid, born and raised on the Internet, hahahah. So I'll post here more often. Maybe. Maybe not.

    Here's two new WIPS on 11 x 17 paper (love the stuff, it's like a mini-mural):

    Everything is wonky and out of place in the first one, but that will all come together with practice. I draw from life, from masters, and from references when I need to study. Sometimes from memory.
    I think my most developed skill is my clean pencil-work, but that could use more practice too.

    Second one-- I felt like letting go of subject matter for a minute and doing some stupid, random heavy metal designs. I think the beefy elbows are repetitious, so I should probably get a look at them from all angles and shapes. I'm really inspired by James Jean, so I often get noodley in my doodles, but they lose structure. Again, practice will keep it all together.

    Contemporary-- My three weakpoints: faces, anatomy, and drapery. So I'm studying each more now. Sometimes I divvy up an hour to all three. Tegan and Sara, hahah, yeah, I copied that screen from the video for "Back In Your Head", they're adorable. Made a little skull study of it afterwards.
    M. Nelson-- Heheh, thanks. Sometimes it's too easy get compliments here. But they're just as valuable as critiques, I think. Oh lawd.

    Thanks Glory, you're teh best.Hahah

    I realized today that I only do about 2 sketchbook pages per day, when I used to do 10.
    Here's a sketch from today. I like the super-tall fashion models in Vogue, so I tried to imitate their bodies (shoulda used high-heels, heh):

    Hey all. Here's a long 3 hour sketch from life drawing class. Just had my last fall class on Saturday, but I'll be signing up again for spring.

    Thanks guys. Here's some new junk-- sketches on 11x17, digital doodles, faces, and a quick charcoal self-portrait. Crits and comments appreciated, as usual.

    Your more comic-like works are amazing, they've got such life and fluidity in them. Great stuff

    Your realism isn't as consistent, but you still have some very nice pictures. I like this one a lot, and some other sketches are definitely well on their way.

    Keep up the pencil, I'll definitely revisit!
