Sketchy sketchitty sketches
I, i'm new here!
My brother (pantless_wanderer) introduced me to this site, and since I love to draw, here am I.
I might be only 13 years old, but I aim to be a professional artist some day, so don't forget to crit my work if you stop by.
My "art" is coming in the next post. The picture quality isn't the best (cellphone camera)... sorry for that.

hey, if you're 13 and you want to be an artist now then that's great. you get a chance to start early and get a lot of practice in. i just decided to pop in here and give you some encouragement, since i wasn't as brave as you. it took me long time to post a sketchbook in here and i'm WAAAY older.
have you thought about getting an human anatomy book and copying that?

Yay, I got a reply!
I have lots of anatomy books already... well, they're from my brother but I use them anyway. But in the past months I din't had much time to do anatomy studies becouse of school exams, so all I did was quick cartoony sketches and now I'm finding it hard to getting back to the "serious" anatomy stuff again
Also, I took a look at your sketchbook and I really liked your stuff but I can't say much couse I'm still a beginner.
...and some more sketches (studies from Vilppu, Mattesi and Jack Hamm):

i think your figures are really nice there andrea - good and dynamic poses with lots of life in them. you got a proper confident line and a pretty good sense of shapes too. if you just keep on drawing and learning you'll be great before you know it. it's all about the mileage isn't it? enjoy and keep at it.

I would highly recommend getting in the habit of browsing art books at libraries. Just explore what's out there, especially good quality catalogs of museums. I'm talking about the giant, 5-10lb books that show you every painting or drawing in the Louvre, Metropolitan, Prado, Hermitage, MFA, Frick, Vatican etc. Ask yourself what you like and dislike, and see if your opinions change in a few years

darkwolfb87: Thanks for the advice. I do spend some time looking at art books but it's mostly stuff from my brother (James Jean, John Foster, Frazzeta...). But theres also stuff from Van Gogh, Piranesi and some mythology encyclopedias with AMAZING paintings around the house. But I know some works by the likes of Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Dali and Rubens (love the stuff from the last one).
These are some studies from imagination:
