A 17-year-old's attempts at drawing
I'll post my complete SB as soon as I have a scanner. Sorry the picture quality is rather crappy...
As I'm only 17, be mild with the criticism please constructive comments are very welcome

The Resolution is a little too high, so one can see the not so nice details. But one can see the nice details too, this way
The order of the pics should be chronological by the way (concerning the date of creation).

hi there!! dude you crashed my browser!
you should really really size them down!!! I cant crit much because I cannot see one drawing of yours in full size! only eyes, fingers and tits! takem to photoshop or something and reduce to about 1000pix to 600pix!!!
the only thing I see is that your line quality could improve…but I´m on that as well,hehe. try to get flowing lines and no little stokes!!
I´m also 17 btw.!! and as I started here, I also thoght that I´m a young member…till I stumbled across some really sick 13 years old dudes!!
just some motivation! you better get going!! =)=)
looking forward to seeing more stuff! hope you get a scanner soon!!
keep it coming

hey man just checking out your sketchbook and your hands look really good, i think you may accentuate some lines a bit to much such as around the stomach and ribs but other than that your drawings look great. Keep up the good work I'll pop by soon to check out your updates

I see you're off to a fair start. However, I think you'd be much happier with your work after you do some anatomy studies. The obvious recommendations would be to look and Loomis, Bridgeman, and any actual anatomy books. As has already been recommended, Posemaniacs is a great site. They have 30 second sketches you can work on and many other poses you can look at as long as you like. Obsorb the human body and it's porportions. Your figures seem quite tall and thin, which isn't a problem if you want them that way, just make sure the porportions are correct, and you'll see how much that helps your work. Otherwise good work, and keep working on studies and draw from real life. If you study pictures too long, everything has a a flat, 2-d look to it. Also, don't generalize your work by your age because there a some fantastic work here from very young people. There's no reason Why you can't be one of those people! Keep positive and good luck!
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

@bigfooTrooper: thanks for advice and the useful link, I'll try to get myself to work with that a little ^^
@bagg: thanks =)
@WickedEdges: thanks for the advice, I'll keep an eye on that.
a small part of a bundle of sketches
I kinda always fail at creating whole faces, though I'm quite good at drawing the single parts like noses or lips... some things are wrong with this face, but I can't clearly determine what exactly I do wrong...

Don't worry about your age, the younger you are, the more time you have to learn. Also, don't make it an excuse, look at miles' stuff, and he is 15 or 16. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=97046
Keep working hard, and you will improve.
For your newest, the portrait, the guys nose should finish lower down. Also, work on your rendering. Right now you just seem to scribble a bit of shade here and there. Try spending a while on something.
