    Hey dude, great start so far! The 2nd and 3rd drawings have a great sense of form. In the last one, the painting, the eyes are uneven causing the face to be unsymmetrical, so that's something to watch out for in the future. Just up the good work! ^^

    the sketches show you know anatomy. Work on your lines!
    but still amazingly good for a 15 year old, there are some other kids around here ( Miles, and others but ive forgot their names) check em out
    I'd wish I discovered CA when I was your age. If you keep it up you'll be a good artist when your 21 or so

    cheers!

    Thank you for your replies guys
    I am going up to London each day for the next two weeks, so hope to get lots of life drawing done from unsuspecting sleeping people! mwhahaha.
    In the meanwhile, this is a copy of captain america, a drawing of my foot and a pen drawing of (some of) a face, with ref. used.

    Don't do what I did when I was growing after 15 and draw less. Draw more! (Although it gets tough when life gets busy, just keep finding the time to draw!)
    Really, I think if you keep up your current attitude and you keep drawing, you'll be phenomenal in years time. I like how you're doing studies of yourself, and you plan on drawing from real life as studies. That'll really help.

    Keep up the good work!

    Edit: And you know what... I want to see where you end up. *Subscribes*

    hmmm...fewer people seem to fall asleep on trains than i expected
    Well, first is my only on-the-train drawing (don't like it very much), second is a pen portrait done without a ref (minus 5 points for drawing on lined paper) and third is a quick biro doodle (minus 5 points for drawing on envelopes).

    Hey, at least you're not shy of drawing on lined paper.
    Good face on it! It reminds me of a caricature of some president... what was his name... can't remember.

    Havn't put nearly as much stuff as I would have liked to in here, so hopefully this is the start of much more stuff.
    This was one third of my entry to this week's chow (NPC design). didn't finish in time for the deadline, but here's what I got done for one of my npcs ( a crusadery type) and i'll try to finish it, along with the other three. this is my first ever digital picture, so be nice XD

    Thanks for any comments!

    The first of many more updates to come!! (hopefully:P)

    Well I have finally started drawing more, and here are three drawings from my class title: 'viewpoints'.

    *had to use my camera for these as school s/book is too large for scanner*

    Well, first is a self-portait with my feet nearest the mirror (i look really grumpy cuz i'd been sitting with my back straight on that table for 25 mins),

    Second is a drawing of my legs/feet on a ladder (everyone seems to be confused by the viewpoint: I was sitting in an attic hatch with my feet on the ladder rung)

    And third is a quick fineliner portait of a friend (who also happened to be drawing).

    Any suggestions/tips/hints/corrections/critiques are very welcome!!!

    P.S. if anyone has any bright ideas on an interesting take on 'viewpoints' as a topic title then i would love to hear them

    Thanks!!!

    Your portraits are looking swell! I'm especially jealous of the way you draw noses. But try to shake things up; don't stick to doing front on and 3/4 views of the faces. Study some Loomis and try so really crazy angles.
