    This is ok. But as people keep telling me, you have to study the subject that you draw. Gather reference. Learn more about anatomy both in humans and animals. And most important of all; Stay Curious.
    And Australia, you have some crazy flora and fauna down there. Go nuts
    Please take the time to give me some constructive criticism in my Sketchbook

    hey man, i'm also pretty new at all this stuff
    so i thought i'd try and give u a bit of feedback cause i know thats what i'm looking for
    i think you've got some cool ideas here, the characters are interesting which is great. but i agree with Hilbruks, it looks like u just need to make sure you have references for what your drawing, so that you can nail the basics.
    you've just gotta keep chipping away at it, and get that under your belt.
    that's what i keep getting told anyway and it seems to work
    best of luck to you mate

    it's always a good thing to start a sketchbook, specially if you ave a iron-will to keep it update regularly. Anyway, one advice: buy a anatomy for artist book and work on it. At the moment, stop to raw orks, aliens dragons and things so and give to yourself a more solid anatomy base, draw from life, sketch everything.
    You'll be happy to see how fast you can improve your skills in this way.

    Hi, it's cool that you've started a sketchbook.
    I agree with Anjin, buy a book on anatomy and do a lot of studies and draw from life whenever you can. Ask your friends if you can do some sketches of them so that you're studying anatomy and drawing from real life human beings. My friends think i'm wierd when i ask to draw them so i don't tell them i'm doing it.
    All the best, keep at it

    A good start! Enthusiasm and a willingness to open yourself up for constructive criticism and learning are essential.

    Do many drawing exercises before you start drawing. Try drawing things like circles and squares and horizontal/vertical lines - they're great for building hand eye coordination and increasing confidence. Also, once you've done a drawing, try holding it up to a mirror to see how it looks. Most beginner's drawings are skewed one way or another, and by looking at it in a mirror we can start to try and control the distortion.

    Keep going!
