    Hi,
    here are two threads that explain how to attach images:
    Link
    Link
    (Copyright stuff isn't covered in either of them because that feature was added not long ago but you'll see its not really complicated.)

    And heres a thread where you can make tests. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=96341

    Good luck.

    Put in smaller images dude, you can't see anything of them if they're so huge.

    Open them up in photoshop & down the image size to about 1000 px maximum.


    cheers

    13 huh? wish i would have found conceptart.org when i was your age!
    Your going to learn so much here!
    Get your self some anatomy books like Bridgemen or Loomis and try to copy as many drawings as you can from them.
    Also keep studying from the old master painters.
    Looking forward to seeing your progresion on your journey of art
    Keep having fun learning and drawing- Jamie

    OmertA - Thanks, Ive been looking at a lot of anatomy books and copying from national geographis

    Updates
    This is an assignment for school, we are to create a fable and a shoe, I lost my fable at school but heres some photos of my shoe W.I.P
    And my grandad (who past away) gave me alot of great art books, and heres an anatomy book, it says it's from 1899. which, to me, is mind blowing.

    The self-portrait and the enviro are looking really good! I'd like to see more work on traditional media.
    You've got a nice, loose style.. work on anatomy, try to imagine things in 3d.
    Keep up the work!

    Update:

    I drew this using whit's sketchbook for reference, it's amazing how he uses so little lines to create that, so i'm using this methods to get better at my work.
    also, i bought my first Moleskine it cost $32, which was a lot.. but thankfully , if you spend over $30 you can get a panda plush toy for $10 (down from $20) so i got that too

    first and formost, i appologise for all my blurry photos..
    last night i went to Contrast Symphony I met Herman NG/Openanewworld and Adam Nichols they are both great artists and gave me some wonderful tips and inspiration
    I also met Muzz who set up the Contrast Symphony and introduced me to Adam and Herman.
    I drew my first model, she was topless at first but then was costumed.
    i'm happy with what i got but i have to slow down and draw lighter. this was my first drawing in my moleskine and i love the moleskine, the texture that you draw on feels so much better than regualr paper and it's just great
    Also i added an older acrylic painting
