ooh i see you made a lot of anatomy studies at one point!
do some more, and don't worry about the quality of the photo if you can't help it; just don't make it to bright (darker is better) cuzz otherwise we can't see the lines well!
keep at it~`

BlackDelphin--yeah, I need to do more anatomy studies...gah, so lazy am I...will do will do!

you are doing a lot of studies, that's very nice -- the more I paint/draw and the more I understand that painting/drawing a lot is the only way to get better!
there are some great linearts in ur sketchbook, are u planning on shading em with some software? have a nice creative time!

You have some nice imaginative drawings in here. Don't feel bad about your age. I'm 24 and I'm just starting out. Hard work will sort it out.
I was planning to copy the same drawings from Loomis so I wanted to ask you: how do you approach your anatomy studies? I copy the drawings as carefully as I can, while saying the name of the body part while I am drawing it. This imprints a fairly solid mental image. Then I pin the drawing on the board in my room. That way I can't help looking at it a few times a day.

Hey there, there's never too old or too young an age to start on art. To add a picture next too your sketchbook title, all you need to do is to upload your pic from the computer, not using the IMG tag.
Your pencils are really better than mine by the way. I'm very sure you could benefit from this site like i have.
Thanks for dropping by my sketchie and keep on moving!

more update---don't even think i should be putting up these sketches...they're so blah
andrea.bianco-I'm not sure I'll be coloring the sketches...I'm just really lazy or I lose interest or not inspired by my drawings. But I'm glad you think some of my linearts are nice.
evandempsey- sorry for the late reply--I just copy the Loomis stuff as accurately as I can. However I've been really impatient with them, so these are not as accurate as I like. I think I should post my stuff on the wall and look at them too. Great idea! Thanks.
shamandalie- thanks for the comment on my sketchbook and telling me how to upload the pic...still trying to figure it out....gah

Wat up , just trying to holla back at you, I think you have some very nice (the creatures are niceee) and Your studies are right on track. I would suggest doing some tonal studies too to start upping your ante.
my sketchbook is a work of art.
sorry that joke WAS horrible
