    It's great to see someone so young putting so much into learning to draw. As far as your 2 Copic Multiliner SP-s's go, I'd say don't focus on the type of markers or expensive pencils you use. If you can learn to draw good, you can use anything. I pretty much just used regular #2 pencils and copy paper the first 6 years of my life as a professional artist and it worked out fine for me. I look forward to seeing your progress.

    Its good to see your keeping up with the studies.
    Here's a crit: in some of your latest drawings i noticed that you tend to
    make short scratchy lines,same goes for crosshatching.
    Maybe try to get a bit more loose with your lines. Think about each line you lay down.
    Perhaps it helps to practice on a big sheet of paper,drawing loosly but with your whole arm.

    Keep it up! you are going in the right way.

    Yeah,I am not too pleased with the line quality of my drawings either,I will practice to make it better!

    Right now I am learning the hand and hopefully I can update in the next 3 hours.

    Hey guys!

    Sorry for not updating,my scanner is a piece of crap.Now it works again,so I quickly scanned in my recent drawing before it goes crazy again.
    Many anatomy drawings,and a tribute to the greatest villain of all time,Joker!(I will draw a better referenced Heath Ledger too)
    And some concept sketches too!
    C&C welcome!

    WOW... The last scetches are such a vast improvement compared to the previous ones, how you did it ? I think you definitely have the will so I think its surely a matter of time and effort.

    Well done
    So you think , that you are a noob ? Wait till you see my sketchbook.

    Hey there, It's great to see you doing studies, they are always a way to improve, but never limit yourself to just one type of study or improvment activity. What I would suggest would be some line and edge control studies, you have a good eye for anatomy, and it could be 3x as good with line control.

    An activity that some art teachers have suggested would be to do a drawing of still life, or photo ref drawing, but try your best not to lift your pencil, and absolutely dont use an eraser. This forces you focus on your lines, to ensure they are smooth and controlled, and really depict things in essence without too much effort.

    Another activity, i used to do this ages ago, would be drawing lines from dot to dot, kind like connect the dots, trying to get the line straight as possible. Then try varying width from dot (a) to dot (b). I know they seem like simple tasks but they helped me out when i was having line control issues immmensly.

    That being said keep it up, youve got the heart and a great starting place (this website) and if you keep it at it youll be good in no time! Never give up, that's the key.

    Thanks Kilon,well if you mean the anatomy studies,I just put in some shading,that works wondersIf you think of the referenced Jokers,well,they are from referencethe armored character was pretty simple but I screwed up the shading with the markers...

    Also thanks Natzuur-JK,your sketchbook is awesome!I am quite angry at my fuzzy lines...however,I am pretty good at straight line drawing(IMO),but I will pay some more attention to the not-straight lines as well

    I have 1 good and 1 bad news today:
    -the bad:my scanner is dead.It doesn't turn on.It was a piece of crap,but I will give it the proper funeral(I always wanted to check a scanner from the inside,so here is my chance...)
    -the good:I thought of buying a new scanner,but I might as well buy a tablet,so no fussing with scanning.I went up to Ebay,and found an INTUOS 3 A6 WIDE FOR 50 FRIGGIN BUCKS(ALL NEW)!!!The seller has got around 500 positive feedback(100°%),so I can consider this day a lucky one.

    Here are the last drawings before my scanner's death:
    I screwed up the left leg in the picture with only one drawing,next time I will pay attention to that.

    Updates when my tablet arrives!

    Hi there,

    you show a lot of promise in your sketches. If you keep up all the studies and get into drawing as regularly as possible, you will learn and improve at a steady rate. It's hard to say what you should specifically improve on, but starting with anatomy is a good place. My main piece of advice is to learn to really start seeing things the way they really are. try to forget everything you think you know about all objects etc, and learn to start observing. Do lots of studies from life and photos. Remember not to rush things, if you want to study line, just do line, if you want to render, then render. Try not to rush anything or have the attitude that it is okay to leave things not done to the best of your ability. Personally, I feel that learning to always draw the best you possibly can is the key to fast improvement. If you always put the same amount of effort into a study as you would any other drawing, you will learn so much more

    Oh, and draw from life as much as possible. if you want things to look like real life, what better to study Keep on updating!

    Thanks Kilon!Yeah,a tablet is a great thing,I had one before,unfortunately that was when I didn't know anything about drawing,so I couldn't put it to good use.I hope that this time it will be a better piece of equipment for me!
