14...not bad at all. It's very good that you are drawing from reference. You should try to draw from life as much as possible. Study anatomy as much as you can. You have a promising start! Keep practicing!

14, eh? Great start to your art journey! I agree with the comments about Bridgman and Hogart. They are must haves for your understanding of anatomy. Just start on the first page and draw everything all the way through. Looking at great art won't get the information into your head, but drawing it will.
I suggest that you draw more before you start working in color in Photoshop. Also, work with more contrast in your drawings, things that are closer to the viewer can be more intense in value, and things that are further away should be lighter. This helps the viewer's eye to focus on the most important things, such as the face, the hands, and a bit of armor or weaponry. Here is an example of your work with the above applied to it. . .

i understand what you mean, i will have a look at that book and i dont do that much in photoshop but occasionally ill practice or review and hopefully learn something new. About the contrast i understand what you mean but the drawing looked so plain before i shaded the outside and i also wanted to give him a sort of glow. For the armor and weapons i totally agree but i wasnt sure if i wanted it to dark or not. thanks for the help though

photoshop filters are fun to use but they need to be used correctly and controlled. try not to rely on the filters in photoshop. if anything don't use it at all...

I'd suggest trying not to smudge with your finger too much when creating tone, either. Try creating tone just by using lines instead.
Not bad at all for 14, though!

i stopped using filters, the ones with filters were made about a month ago, and i know what you mean slothboy and thats what im learning now in school and practicing because smudging can make it look messy. Thanks for the advice though guys really appreciate it.
