Hi! I am a 26 years old (maybe too old to learn how to draw) brazilian art student.
English isn´t my main language, so forgive me if I make some mistake.
The following block is a lot of talk. You can skip it if you like.
I have been watching this forum almost everyday for at least 2 years now. This has been always a source of inspiration to me to keep drawing and studying.
Now, I think it is time to start a sketchbook here and have some critics, advices and knowledge from the amazing artists among here.
Lately I´ve been thinking a lot about the meaning of being an artist and live from art. And I realized Art is not just about technic and skills. It is about creativity and expression as well. And this is all about life. How the artist perceive the world around him.
So, the goal to this sketchbook is not just about learn to draw, but learn to live, be more creative, express my feelings and be more sensitive. Interact with different people. See the world from another point of view.
Enough talking. My recent studies...

For you to say 26 is too old to start is as to say 103 is too young to be a breakdancer, (im sure there would be a lot of breaking) it's crazy talk and besides you show great potential and your SB ROCKS!
oh and 1 more thing, a guy i know started playing the violin in his 80's, your never too old (not that your playing the violin) you get the point

AUG: Thank you! The man with no name: Thank you! Sometimes I see very young artists doing awesome drawing / illustration that make me feel a little disappointed. There is a long road to reach that level. And I am already 26 years old (27 soon). Ok... I´ll try not to be depressed and don´t compare myself with others. gabyness: Thanks. I need to do more of them. Leonor: Yeah. I think I missed the girl´s proportions a bit.
