    Alright cousin, well from talking to you in real life, I know you got the drive for now, you want real improvement, well you just gotta make it last. Set aside time every day to draw from life and to study from your books. Focus on making objects look 3D and giving them form as well as rendering and all that jazz. Its a long long journey but you're young and have the time if you use it. Good luck!

    Well let me just say that you're fortunate to share blood with Miles. Your cousin is an amazing artist.
    You seem to have been doing this for only a very short time. Drawing gets MUCH better as you do it more. I think that you're rushing the drawing the process quite a bit. Slow down. It's not a speed competition.
    14 is pretty early to start. Keep working (AND LISTEN TO YOUR COUSIN! ) and you'll be great in no time.

    Don't rush to much into anatomy. Whats really important when doing your studies is that your knocking down your proportions, size and length. Like miles said you have to think in a 3d sence. Some of your characters lack basic form. I would start of with some cartoon or anime how to draw. Draw from pictures and be sure your getting the proportions, size, and length. You'll get better. Just don't rush things you learn.

    Wassup , woooo so many young people same age as us joining these days.
    Your pretty new to this, don't worry about it just study hard and practise everyday for atleast 20 mins.
    Trust me even if you do just 1 life drawing a day you'll improve in like a mont imagen if you do studies, ref drawings and everything and draw for hours you'll improve in no time.
    Keep it up and keep drawing hope to see you around again

    Take it slow and put all of your effort into it. Even if you get to a point when drawing is the last thing you want to do, atleast think about drawing!
    I'm looking forward to seeing improvement!

    Something i had remembered doing when i was just starting out was a whoooleee ton of light studies.
    You might want to give this a shot.
    Nothing complicated at all though, try drawing like 20 sketches with spending no more than 5 min a piece of eggs, or somthing else round.
    Then do the same thing with squared or hard surfaced objects.
    I find when trying to make somthing appear 3D, the contrast and lighting is what defines it the most.

    Good luck!

    Yo cuzz! I've been away for a week and only 2 updates


    Take on board all this advice Draw your cats, they're purdy, or your house, I know how nice it is

    Just basically draw every day and you'll improve no swear, just takes time, 14 is still a young age to start, use that to your advantage.

    Ciao brother!

    Everyone's right on track with the advice! I think doing those light studies are great for a begining artist. Another exercise I did early on (and still do to warm up) is to try and draw perfect circles (in one motion) and to draw two points and then connect them with a single line (drawn in one motion). This helps to develop your muscle control and to get your hand to react to what your mind is seeing faster. Keep going and draw, draw,draw!!

    ...a perpetual plan for discovery days,where everyone can take part in "purposeless play".

    Hey Cousin, its nice to see you are drawing plenty, but don't rush your studies. Slow it down and try to copy all the shapes and sizes and positions of the muslces. Don't be happy with anything but perfect, even if it means it takes hours to do just one thats fine. Most importantly keep it comin my booi!

    Nice bro!
    First sketchbook and a step closer to more improvment
    Again as miles said slow it down, look at shapes and observe, you'll understand much more.
    Just keep doing them and you'll be improving fast trust me
    I like how you keep your imaginative stuff fresh don't ever forget that always do as much imaginative as you study
    Cya
    Keep it up

    Hey man!
    Great to see you practicing a lot. i'm a total beginner to, but i want to give u some advice to. like your cousin said, practice a lot, and take your time. if you're trying something, but it just doesn't work, try again, keep trying untill you get it right. that's a mistake i often make. when something doesn't look right, i sometimes make the mistake by throwing that piece of paper away, and try start something else. that's not good. keep trying, untill you achieve what you kind of had in mind, and you'll really learn a lot.

    Greets, and keep them coming ,
    Surion
