    Hey hey, nice gallery so far, your improvement is actually starting to show.

    A few notes, you might want to draw faces a lot more, to both, study them and get used to the features, that way you won't have problems, try this at least once a day, either that or draw your hand constantly, don't worry much about rendering, just try to get the lines right D:

    But you have great studies going on there so far, don't give up, remember, age doesn't matter, just how much you keep pushing.

    This is just a personal preference, but I think your drawings would look better if you didn't smudge out the shadows (like you did on the drawing of hands).
    Your lines look nice, but the smudging makes the drawing look unclean and hide your lines.

    I would like to see some more drawings like the third one in your first post. Always interesting to see all the different personalities you find when drawing people outside, and it's good practice as well :)

    Hi sky, and Welcome to CA!
    this sure is the place to be if you want to improve.
    I like your studys, those hands and eyes are looking really good.
    But you asked for what we'd like to see from you, well [I'm going to have to disagree with 'iambanana'] I think you
    should stick with the pencils for now and just use the digitals for colouring,
    and I'd try to draw more faces aswell, and if you get frustrated with the whole face just draw parts. [like you've done with the eyes]
    And like Izra said age doesn't matter [I'm 16 by the way] just your comitment.
    Your off to a great start, keep at it.

    good luck

    Thank you both! It seems a lot of people want me to do some faces, so that is what I'll do! They're a bit difficult for me, but...Nothing practice can't handle. Again, thanks for the feedback!

    the pencil drawings were good those eyeballs were GREAT! almost scary real ur photoshop def. needs work but if ur ever going to get good at anything my advice is to continue trying even as depressing it may get..might even inspire good luck and btw i like how you were doing studies of actual people i think i might have to start doing that

    why is skeletor a skeleton with purple muscles and if your a skeleton how do you even have muscles{by the power of grey skull thats how}

    Hey hey! Another fellow beginner here! Only..I started even later in the game then you! So no worries there.

    Here's some names that will help you alot if you are anything like I am: Loomis and Vilppu.
    "Figure Drawing" by Loomis is like my bible..tons of GREAT info there, and Vilppu's "Drawing Manual" is amazing for technique.
    Also, if you have 50 bucks floating around, pop by alienthink.org. Lots of great anatomy lessons on 5 dvds. Great learning tool!

    Warning! Drinking lots of beer can impair your senses. Please do so before you view my sketchbook!

    hes either saying your drawings flat, or it needs a bit of space in the background, now its just a floating head

    but really, both
    take a look how other people have drawn faces, remind yourself of the muscles of the face, the ones thatll cast shadows blah blah, i suck at faces aswell so i shouldnt be giving this advice haha

    Update! Instead of jumping right into the other faces, I decided to take a little detour and first try to learn and understand how to make them more realistic. Thus, I've done a page on hatching and values. It's opened my eyes just a tad on how I could apply this to my art.

    Sorry for the smudging... Charcoal Pencil is so messy...Lol
