Hello! So far, looks like an excellent start - especially if you're only 15! Just keep doing more of the same, and remember to keep an eye on proportions and such (making sure you have a solid foundation for your picture before "painting the walls" with fine details, etc.)

Hi! Lots of stuff, lookin' good The drawings from life and self portraits are a great habit to get into, they're great, just take your time on the studies; some of them look rushed or out of proportion. They're easier to learn from if you go real slow and make sure they're accurate. Keep drawing!

Good stuff, and that last digitally coloured piece ain't half bad
You're certainly better then *I* was at 15 and there are some areas I think yer better then me now haha. Keep posting and keep doing studies like you've been doing. What I notice from the studies to what look to be free hand stuff, is that you are "learning" from the studies, but its not quite getting applied to the free hand. Still just take yer time. You have plenty of it, and you're off to a great start!

The lava river is nice! Especially the lighting effects on the rocks, if you put another couple of hours no just that area it would be great!

Dr.Blindsy wow me better than you in areas ha, but your sketchbook is soo good anyways thanks and ill keep on posting
Diabolique yes i see what you mean about the lava river as it looks good, but the rest of the picture isn't as good. Ill remember to spend equal amounts of time on the whole thing rather than bits. so thanks alot

Kuidf I am loving the drawings !!
Looking at the lava river and landscape from a couple of feet back from the screen looks great. One thing I would say is when you look closer it looks like parts are missed, landscape at the bottom near your name for example maybe fill in the white gaps? - Just an idea.
Anyway keep posting would love to see more drawings from you, you have great skill!

Hey fellow, I am in a very similar situation as you. Only starting out to get some well proportioned lines on paper. I am still at the point where I'm struggling to get my arse to the drawing board to practice, practice, practice...you know the deal. But I read some books which helped me improve, not only that, but they gave me good insight (not just tips) to the drawing process. These are Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life,The Artist's Complete Guide to Drawing the Head and Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. Those books are well worth a read and you will improve. (I have to update my sketchbook to prove that. Last update was in April....) Other than that, get yourself to practice as much as possible (I know it is not easy) and you should use your Wacom only to colour what you already got down on paper with the good old pencil. The pencil is the easiest and fastest way to improve your drawing skills, since you are not able to unlimitly erase your mistakes. To me this is essential. It brings me to think more about my next line. Not in a distracting way, but in a way that helps me to realize what I do, what I want to show.
Last but not leas, draw big! Draw on A3 minimum, better on A2. Interesting results, and you know what you've done with your little pencil afterwards! I should stop talking now and get back to my own sketchbook...to bring it up to date ;-)

thanks for dropping by. nice sketches you have here. still, you should work on getting the perspective and form of the objects right. my suggestion is to put a grid pattern on a table, put some object on it and try to draw it as precisely as you can right after you copy the grid lines using a ruler or something. this way you should notice the depth in the motive
keep it up

Smash^ Thanks you very much for your comment, i didnt know they were that good

Lateman Thanks i sure wont give up
eparts Your grid idea is clever i may try that soon when i have time thanks

Hello to CA my friend!
If you are willing to learn concept art you got to work more from your mind. Create your own characters and you are actually doing a great start by doing these studies. Gain the feeling of volume, shadows and light. Do some anatomy studies because when you want to be a concept artist you need to know the human anatomy liek your second nature! Chack out in google for Burne Hogarths book of anatomy. Re-draw precisely every drawing of his.
And look at some other artists better than you http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=166350

clanlord thanks very much for your comment i havent got the burne Hogarth book, but i have the bridgeman book so i will draw from that and post them on here so thanks ! i'll keep doing lots of anatomy and try to paint characters or creatures from my head next time.
Here is some more drawings and paintings

Wow, your PS sketches are impressive - especially these last ones! And good for you, stay with the trad drawings as well; as you've heard, being able to draw traditionally really does give you a great artistic foundation.
Keep at it, man draw, draw, draw!
Look, see! Nifty art! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=99803

Good studies! The onion is gorgeous. On the other ones, try to think in 3d and simplify the volumes. Maybe some of the objects are a bit too complex for a start. I think it's better to invest all your efforts in having a good 3d representation.
Anyway, that's a great start! keep up the work and you'll go far

You have beautiful paintings. Keep it up! I would suggest more anatomy studies, try to inject some 'life' into your sketches

You're doing well. I can see improvement, especially in your digital painted pieces, from your earlier drawings, namely the way you do the eyes. Keep up the still lifes and try to get some more figures in here, even if it's only gestures.
