    good start

    daring to show the world your work might seem frightening at first, but be fearless!

    I haven't been doing much sketching lately, just studying perspective, light, colour theory, shading, how to use paint etc

    Will do, thanks for the motivation

    I now have a deadline, I need to get competent by september and give in a portfolio to get into A level art (which isn't hard, they let almost anyone in). Gonna double the amount of work I do everyday

    I know the mistakes that I've made drawing her face, but whenever I try to fix them I just make them worse x___X

    Nice apple, but I would like to see more dark shades on it, as it seems a little flat as is. Try to show the concave area where the stem goes in with some shading, and also it would help to add a ground shadow so it doesn't look like it's floating in the air.

    Keep it up.

    Thanks, I knew I didn't properly represent the light on that apple but I didn't want to mess it up so I didn't add shadows.

    The reason why I haven't posted in a long time is because of the summer holidays, stuck in Algeria. Back at school now in sixth form/college (I got into Art, YESSS ) I need to get competent by the end of the school year, so loads of work to do.

    Did some quick practice sketches of lips/eyes, I tried to add shadows/highlights and to blend, but it still looks a bit off, can someone point out why?

    Welcome to the forums, fantastic start for a complete beginner, showing lots of promise, strive to get your stories and ideas out, no matter the skill level they should shine through. Keep it up and maybe visit the tutorial section, and maybe the daily sketch group and art discussion. Best of luck to ya.

    Thanks! I'll do that. The stuff on CA looks ridiculously useful.

    Er, just one sketch since I've been reading up on theory. Andrew Loomis books are amazing, better than my art teacher that's for sure.

    Hey man, you sure have been into it, eh?!
    I can see clearly upgraded to you anatomy since the first human figure you've posted.
    I would also suggest Burne Hogarth books if you feel like being leaned to illustration, Andrew Loomis seems to make use of smoother lines tho.

    Anyway it's always nice to have a blink on new books Keep posting!

    Will do.

    The amount of work I've got done is shameful. I keep reading theory and not doing much actual drawing, blargh. Er, I started the title page of my journal, have to fill the entire page with faces. 1 down 3249872389423 to go.

    Yeah, I can see all the stupid mistakes in this, but for the sake of keeping a record of my progress:
