    The images aren't showing up, but I'll try to fix it for you for now:









    May I suggest that you learn how to use the 'attachment feature' (the little paper clip icon) when posting your art, makes things much easier because you can upload images directly from your hard drive.

    Onto the art itself: You have a lot of potential, so at this stage in your life pick up a few anatomy books and study them. The key here is to learn how to see forms correctly and interpret that visual information onto paper. I won't lie and say that your drawing skills will improve over night, but with some hard work and many hours practice, you'll become the artist you want to be.

    Also, don't get discouraged. Learning to draw well is easier for some than others, but in the end, we all reach our goal eventually. I recommend checking out THIS LINK to get you started on the right path.

    FOURTEEN-YEAR-OLDS UNITE /highfive

    to start off, it's really great to see a first post in a sketchbook, especially from young artists. to start off, here's a great tutorial to look at. It all is very overwhelming at first, so look back at it in bits and pieces. It's good to find a balance between personal art and studies and incorporating the latter into the former. I'm looking forward to coming back, so keep posting!

    You draw and it's the only way to improve, but you don't take care of volumes. In my opinion I think you can learn how to draw perspectives ,simple volumes and shadows, values... because at the beginning there is a lot of things to learn : perspective, values, volumes, anatomy. I think it's better to clarify and simplify a bit.

    You can search andrew loomis books on the web. There are helpfull.

    You should work more on gesture, leave rendering and detailing for later. This way you'll avoid proportion issues, and your drawings will start looking full of life
