Hi all! I decided to go ahead and stop being shy and make a sketchbook thread. It'll take me a little bit to get my newest works up here, so for starters I'll post a couple of my favorite older pieces.
I'm only 17 (June 22, 1990), I'm a senior in high school right now, and looking for a good art college to go to for hopefully Special Effects Design.
I've been learning how to draw since I was about 5, knew that's what I wantde to do with my life, but didn't see it as anything but a hobby because I didn't think I could make a living off of it (yes, I really did think about that kind of crap when I was five years old...that's probably why I act like a child now.). Then when I was 11, I found out I could do art professionally, so I've been teaching myself every day since then. I've been self-taught completely up until I started my senior year (retarded, I know, but they always took me out of art classes...even though I need 4 to graduate...). So anyway, crit hard please, I want to learn as much as I can! (Duh)

And this one is a picture of John Wayne for my grandmother. (My camera took a not very nice picture, but it was the best I could do for the moment D: )

I know there's a lot of mistakes with these, and I can see a lot of them, but please tell me some mistakes you guys see with them. I'm sure I can't see all of them, so any crits would be lovely.
