Alamed's SketchBook - Free criticism acceptance :P
I'm a 20-something guy from Saudi Arabia. Currently working as an IT project manager (since I majored in Software Engineering). I love drawing and I wish to make it my retirement job, if not before (less headache!).
With the absence of art schools here, everything I learned was online or from books. I'm still lost on what to focus my practice on. I know that I'll need a lot of practice, but which area should I develop first? and is there a recommended practice method?
Any critique or help is appreciated , or feel free to just look around.
Below is one of my latest sketches. I'm currently working on my digital lines.

Here is something I tried tonight, coping the work of Mr. William Whitaker (http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=152936)
I know its not finished, but I didn't dare to add anything to it because I loved it so much .
Things learned here: Using tracing paper over pre-sketch. Some shadowing.
