Hi everyone. I've decided that I'm only going to live once so I'd better start a CA sketchbook right now!
Part that you skip over because it's boring:
I'm sixteen, I live in Pennsylvania, I'm a sophomore, I like drawing a lot, I have a pet dog, my favorite color is green, and I'm a Leo.
/part that you skip over because it's boring
Please critique me, teach me, tell me how much I suck, etc.
Without further ado: art.

These are a bunch of drawings from the beginning of summer up until now. They're in roughly chronological order.
Sketch of my school from a photo. Took a few hours.
Acrylic paintings from models; about two hours each.
Life drawing. Two hours.
My first ever charcoal drawing. Lopsided because it's one square yard in size, and I wasn't used to working that large.
Charcoal life drawing. Took an hour.
Life drawing. Two hours.
Life drawing of a lamp. Massive amount of graphite wasted getting this effect.
Life drawings of a skull. I bought a skeleton to keep at home so I could do this.
Life drawing with Pigma Micron fine point markers.
Drawing of a friend during lunch. Must have taken about an hour total.
From now on I'll be posting what I do on a day-to-day basis. Just wanted to get these out there.
If you post in this thread, you're my hero.
So far no one is my hero. Post something - there's still time before the position is taken.
Below is a study of a 3D model in the art room this morning. The next two are unblurry versions of the skull drawings.
welcome and nice start!
Been lazy to but started a sketchbook a while ago wich I plan to keep alive.^^

Ah, someone in the same situation I see. Thanks for being my hero.
For a second I mistook the school drawing for a photo. Nice shit man, love the portrait of your friend, though the hair looks a little tacked on.
Thanks kiksq. Hair is sometimes a weakness of mine.
I'm not yet fully adjusted to having to actually do stuff for school, but I've gotten a few small things done in my sketchbook.
Practice drawing with Pigma pens.
Work in progress - life drawing of a skeleton. I took the photo with my phone - please forgive the quality.
Quick color study in Photoshop. That's what it looks like out the window behind my computer.

Oooh that last skeleton looks -so- pretty...! The skull and spine look especially nice with all their little details, and they really pop out from the dark background - great work. It's gonna look awesome when it's finished. The marker/pen work you've done looks great as well, I'm in such awe of the patience you must have to draw all those itty bitty little pen lines you can't erase... Argh, haha. Anyhow, crack on and post more :>
Thank you for the kind words, Andrea.
Charcoal and pencil drawings today.
Here's what my friend would look like if he happened to be a zombie. He was moving around, so I wasn't very accurate in the drawing.
Good times in Latin class. This one's actually my favorite for its neatness.
Sitting outside, I spied a tree. I drew the tree. On a piece of paper. I would like you to see it.
And a quick charcoal sketch of what I saw as I sat on my lawn.
Bunch of papers to write, but I got a drawing done for English class.
I went crazy with this one. Pigma pens, ink washes, prismacolor markers, and brushes dipped in india ink.
Picture taken with my phone again. Sorry about the quality. Don't know why I have to talk in fragments. Gotta go now.
I recently finished my skeleton drawing. It was done with charcoal and a white pencil.
A splendid idea, Shalite.
Just one page and in my eyes there is already alot of progress, it is great to see!
Keep working as hard as you're working now, and a great artist you shall be in no time
jedininjaman - Hey, thanks for reminding me about anatomy. That would be a good thing to work on during my free time in school.
Lakka - Thank you.
Here is a figure drawing I did on Saturday. I did it on newsprint using charcoal and a white pencil.
Today I did some Loomis.
damn these are good
i really like the skeleton ones.. you have now inspired me to draw skeletons
Thanks Radon. Skeletons are fun.
Here are three charcoal drawings. One I believe I've already posted in lower quality.
Here are two charcoal drawings, one of which I am disappointed in, and a pen-and-ink still life. The still life was chosen out of all the others to represent my high school in a local art show, so that's pretty cool but I haven't told anyone because that would be bragging.
The last still life with musical instruments is really very very good, congratulations! Also you are showing really good progress from the first posts and to the last one, keep going.
These are some highlights from my recent trip to Switzerland.
