Sketchbook of a 16 year old...
this is a piece that was used with a world of warcraft reference.My scanner isnt that great so you cant really get all of the shading in it.
Ill have more up maybe later tonight...Critiques please.Oh,im also working on getting a tablet so hopefully ill start putting up illustrations within the month.

Good start. Tones are good, I have a feeling it´s a bit tilted to the side, but that´s probably the scanner.
Want to see more!

Hey dude, welcome to CA! Thanks for dropping by my SB!
Since you only have one drawing in here, all I can say is, keep it up and lets see some more!
Well, actually there's a few tips I can drop: draw from life, make sure you're always looking at what you're drawing, it helps to squint your eyes a bit so that you can see the basic blocks of value more easily. Look into these artists: George Bridgman, Hogarth (forgot his first name), Andrew Loomis, Robert Beverly Hale. Another artist I found helpful was an artist by the name of Fritz Schider. Remember, always pay very close attention and take all the time you need to complete a painting/portrait/illustration/etc... Also, you might want to check of the Massive Black video downloads. I have found those to rather helpful.

here is so more stuff for you guys...finally got my scanner up an ready lol. Most of this stuff is pretty crappy in my opinion,but i guess thats up for you guys to decide.Most of the stuff in here is just random spurts of thoughts on paper.also,about 4 of these sketches are from my old sketchbook from the summer.

your style looks good, nice rendering and values (which i'm not very good at). I'll suggest, as said before, to work on your anatomy skills (by studying it from books and/or life drawing). Also, go get a tablet RIGHT NOW! nah, seriousky, it's the best thing you can invest your money in.
Keep it up!

this is a self portrait i had to do for digital arts class,i call this the Alice in Chains wash.
this is the original...
with my wash,i still have to work on it a little, i have to get rid of the blemishes..and a few other little things.
this is another one,i purposely cut out the mouth, i basically was trying to get a focus on the eyes. Part of the project was to have a image focused up close,with the stuff in the background unfocused.

haha that my friend, is what Jason Manley calls the "horror movie palette" orange hues for highlights and green hues for shadows, keep an eye out for it next time your watch a horror movie
you might want to cut the mouth just a sliiiightly bit more? now that you mentioned it my attention keeps getting drawn to the tiny bit of upper lip that you didn't cut out lol...just nitpicking
the Alice in Chains wash SP looks good, i don't know much about photography but compositional wise i feel that you might've cut out too much at the top, showing a bit more of the forehead would work better i reckon, just my 2 cents for what its worth...
