    Looking for advice crits and maybe some friends?!?!!

    Ok new here so sorry for the double post. A bit about me well i am older than most i see on here and a lot less talented there really are some amazing artists here!! I used to draw a lot years back but life just kinda took over and i stopped (silly me) i got made redundant from my crappy job last september and i now stay at home and care for my 8 month old son Oliver!! I found that when i had some time i started to draw again so here i am!! I would like to make some friends on here who can guide me to becoming ALOT better than i am so thanx for listening and here goes again

    Your colors are coming along quite well i think, i definately need to start working on that as well.

    Really love the polar bear, says so much with so few lines.

    keep pushing it bro!
    careful of your colours and linework. if you want to improve your lines, do some blind contour drawings (they will look ugly but warm you up really nice). also look into warming up with http://www.posemaniacs.com with the 30-second drawing thing (or longer).

    pump out more work and you will see yourself improve.draw every day if you can...make it your drug

    Hi latigid I'm an older student and I'm just starting out with drawing so I can't help you progress your skills. I can offer encouragement though and say how great it is that you are being so positive after being made redundant. I really like your paintings and it looks like you've still got your skills. You've come to the right place for help and friends as the other artists here are fantastic. I hope you keep posting as I'm already excited to watch your development.

    Just noticed your in Bucks my Sister lives there......small world!

    hey man,
    well, all i can say is keep drawing. do lots of studies of things, and remember only draw what you actually see, if there isnt a line, dont draw it kind of thing. it helps so much, i have done it, and stopped unfortunately should get it started back up actually, did a lot recently in school though

    Keep practising.

    Remember to really observe your references when you draw. Figure out what the lengths are and really try to apply that to it. You're doing good.
