    Hey there!
    Finally someone younger than me!
    I really like the conceps,the lava man is my fav!
    I also suggest what Nebo said and add my own suggestion:start with anatomy.The human form is so well "designed",that if you learn drawing it properly,designing and inventing other things will be much easier.Also,do every single piece with the best of your ability,you will learn quicker that way!
    I suggest George Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life,you can download it for free.If you want something a bit simpler,then Andrew Loomis is the right choice.Google him and download some of his books,all of them are great!
    I will check back,nice work so far,keep it up!

    Heyy
    thanks for the kind words, I'm looking at Loomis' stuff right now. 'Drawing the Head and Hands' should be helpful

    Rather than going straight to studies like the others have suggested, you MUST learn to draw what you see rather than draw what you think you know. Drawing from observation, and not just that, but really seeing and understanding the things in front of you. I guess I can't stress enough how important that is!

    I suggest getting Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards because it is far more helpful than copying anatomy from a book. At the time being, doing "studies" won't help you much. Getting that book and doing the exercises are the most efficient use of your time right now. Take the book seriously, and work hard at it. If you're a real artist, you'll get past the frustration, and work through it. Find strength in your weaknesses and conquer them, so then they're no longer you're weaknesses.

    The reason you see everyone doing studies is because they allow you to take that knowledge to life drawing and concept art. But if you have no experience with life drawing, then you really should get some before you take on all of those studies... Where are you going to apply those studies? You need to learn to draw first, and THEN go deep into the world of anatomy. Have fun while you can, THEN get super duper serious.

    Don't be a slave to anatomy books and simply copy copy copy. Cherish your creativity for the time being; flaunt it. Keep drawing crazy creatures, but also take on that book I suggested. In a month or two, you'll understand why I suggested that book! Can't wait to see where you'll be then.
    Best of luck Fred!

    I see that you like drawing creatures. I'm the same way, it's easier in my mind to be creative when drawing your own species

    You're off to an ok start though. I'd get on those studies though and if you like drawing creatures then you might wanna practice animal anatomy aswell. If you're bored enough sometime then check out my sketchbook

    Thanks for visiting my sketchbook a while ago. I appreciate it~ It's late, but I'm returning the favor myself...

    I'm afraid I have nothing to offer in helpful advice, or else I'd just be repeating what others said before me. Draw from observation, studies, etc., etc.

    You're off to a good start, though. Keep drawing and doing studies and you'll see improvement in no time~

    Hey young bruv
    Looking good. Studies are good and well. Anatomy, observation (ref) and life studies should do you good. Just remember to apply it.

    Right now I suggest you just really question why you are drawing. Find out your motivations and keep them close. You never want to lose your love for art.

    If you're serious about this, then start hitting it hard. DO finished work. Finish off your sketches, your studies etc. Really spend time on it and try to learn. Get studying too. But it's super important to apply your studies by doing work from imagination. I can not stress how helpful it is when you finish off work.

    Good luck and keep it up

    Haha lucky to have found this site and starting pretty young age. It should serve you a lot of motivation and a little fun scanning around pretty awesome work around here in the forums. Also there's plenty of help offered by the members here, so you're in good hands.

    You've got good potential. What I suggest is starting to draw and learn more from observations. Like take a magazine, and try to draw. The more you draw/practice the more you learn the forms/colours/etc the better the coordination and the better the result in time. And the better you know anatomies and conduct studies, the more you'll be able to create things from imagination - since you've got a lot in hand already (: Oh and don't rush it. Just have limitless fun with what you're doing.

    Good luck, and all the best (: I'll keep tabs on you

    strange style , you have a good imagination , i think it would be good if you mix them with realistic drawings .

    Hey dood, thanks for dropping that comment!

    You've got some quality ideas here, but I feel like you should do some life studies
    as well. I know the made up stuff is fun (all too well, haha) but I've learned that
    it is all derived from the real world. So keep at it!

    Some nice work so far, its cool to see someone my age here. Anyway, a crit that comes to mind is to do a bit more studying on anatomy, I recommend posemaniacs (it helps me a lot). Other than that, keep it up!
