Hi! I'm really new here and thought a sketchbook would be a good way to get into things.
So, just a bit about myself: I'm 18 and currently in my last year of high school. I have to a big 'major work' for the end of the year, so I'll be putting up a lot of stuff related to that. I'm mostly interested in illustration and want to illustrate picture books someday.
I'm justing posting some sketches from last year first of all, so you can get an idea of where I'm at with the whole art thing, then I'll start to post stuff I'm working on now. The wolf pic was copied from a photo.

NoodleDoodle: Thanks, when you say hardened edges do you mean more of an outline? Sorry wasn't quite sure what you meant.
Here are 2 very sketchy compositions. The first one is showing the arrival of some new creatures to an environment. The second one is meant to be 2 creatures fighting over food (grass). The right hand sides got cut off.
Just an explanation of what I'm working on: I'm doing a bunch of mini paintings on masonite board, which when put together will make a story. The characters are all fantasy creatures.
So, the first pic is the beginning of painting one of the above compositions. The second pic is a redo of the above sketch of two creatures fighting, and the third is a meeting between two creatures.
OK, I totally neglected this thing right after I started it, but now I'm actually going to continue.
These are all paintings in progress, except for the second one, which is complete.
Next update on the paintings...
Here is a lead pencil fennec fox:
These two pics are finally complete!
I like where you are going and the way you are building a love for your explorations.

I just finished reading the Mortal Instruments trilogy by Cassandra Clare, and it was AWESOME!! I've been doing sketches of the characters because I like them so much
I am terribly inexperienced at drawing people btw. These ones actually turned out pretty decent, although it took me forever to get them that way.
Some more characters from the mortal instruments...
And some more...these are getting much quicker and easier the more I do.
The finished version of one of the paintings above:
Some dragony notebook sketches:
Thank you Pixie Trick!
Some more notebook sketches:
I neglected this again...here's the next...
Ok, here's the last of them! 20 paintings in total, this was my final school project for art. They actually make up a story when put together, and there are even words that go with them. If you'd like to see it in order, with the story, go here! --> http://mevagh.deviantart.com/gallery/#-A-Fable-HSC-art
A wonderful world!
Amazing and inspiring work, love it
Eiki, thank you so much!
Here's a little watercolour I did for father's day a couple of weeks ago:
I think you have a wonderful talent and i would start thinking about taking a series painting and life drawing class.
Thank you, Mike. I have just started art school this year so I will be getting plenty of life drawing classes
Here are some sketches from the past few months:
Your fennec fox is what I've seen as your best. Always do realism finished work. It'll help improve, keep pushing yourself harder everyday. That's what I've done before, definitely you'll get there.
Thanks for the advice, Zerdron.
hey, you've got good rendering. I can def see you doing book covers one day
