    overcast's stuff

    Greetings, this is my sketchbook. It will show some steady improvement for the next... oh I don't know how long, but I plan to keep this going. I appreciate and ideas, thoughts, criticism and so on. Thank-you for your time

    Well let me be the first one to say welcome to CA since nobody did that for me. lol. How old are you? I guess what you should start doing is to draw, draw, draw and draw. I know you've probably heard that before but it's the truth. Try to take drawing and painting classes if you can because that will be a good start. I would try to draw from observation everyday and also draw to draw from imagination. Doing both is really helpful. That should be some good advice for you to start with. Good luck on your journey.

    16 thats cool, lol i'm 18...anywho good start. lol maybe make the picture on the site a litte smaller lol, if you want it doesn't matter. If you don't know try and get Andrew loomis's books and George Bridgeman's also they will help you so much you can't even fathom how much it will help you. This has already been said but draw from life (things around you) it doesn't matter what you draw as long as you are drawing and paying attention to what you are drawing. So that is really all that I can think of for this moment since (i am asuming that your a beginner) you should focus on that stuff. Happy Trails
