    This seems like a great place to learn and improve, so advice and the like is really really appreciated.
    I suppose I'll start with some of the stuff I have already done..
    (some of the stuff in this first post is really old, near the end)

    Not quite sure what you're doing but I'll see if I can help: Firstly make sure you're posting in 'Advanced' posting mode as opposed to quick reply. > Click on the 'Manage Attachments' button. > From here you can post a "direct link" from an external hosting site such as photobucket or, and this is probably the easiest way, click on the 'Browse' button and upload files from your computer. Make sure you fill in all required information (it should prompt you if you've missed anything) and make sure the file icons and info are adding to the list as you upload them. Also beware of file size, a note should appear at the top of the attachment manager box if something is too big or not a supported file type.

    If all further attempts fail, consider taking a look at the Support forum and or post a thread there.

    Looking forward to seeing the art. ;]

    Hey! Some really great looking stuff, and you're only in Jr.High?! Nice style and concepts look cool. Definitely much better than I was in Jr.High, let alone a few years ago. Have you spent time doing many anatomy studies yet? If not you should looking into books by Andrew Loomis and George Bridgman, http://processjunkie.blogspot.com/20...ooks-ever.html , some of those loomis links are broken but you can google "save loomis" for the rest.

    I like what i see so far, post more so we can give you some better comments, I'll be back for more!

    Good stuff! I would say your definitely on track. Why do you think your skills are far off? They are not up to par yet but you have plenty of time. To get you started with getting past that highschool level, start doing figure and anatomy studies. It will help a lot with your proportions.

    Hay bopx as far as the anatomy on the last piece its close but the legs are a bit to short and the proportions relative to the head are a bit off some places remember top of head to chin 1, chin to center of breast 2, breast to navel 3, navel to crotch4, then go up a bit above the crotch and divide the proportion of the legs out to either the other half of the body or a bit longer for heroic proportions. Keep working at it its close

    -Demo-

    armor WIP

    ffffffff I'm such an armor noob xD

    I've tried to make armor before, but this is probably the second or first time ever succeeding in a full body of armor...instead of frustratedly giving up lol.

    This is just a wip btw, imput is would be super helpful!
    -----
    EDIT
    added 2nd pic: I found this a few days ago. It's way old, but I really want to salvage it

    Nice pencils. Maybe you could add some of the eviroinment when you draw the character, or do couple of characters together

    ProgDraws - Why thankyou

    I have come back from the dead to post! I haven't done art in forever, after finals are done, I will need to do more. Too busy now D':

    1st pic:
    "Hannah, what should I draw?"
    - "a pilot"
    "okay D:"

    And I know the face is super messed up, just ignore it haha
    And yes, the hand proportions were intentional.

    2nd pic:
    I wanted to make two second animation of an awesome kick, so I made a character. I spent so much time on this one, I'm probably not gonna make the animation lol.

    Hey, I really like what you have so far! Your figures and poses look fairly natural. There are some proportional issues that could be helped by studying from the anatomy books that were already mentioned. You could also work on face and hand studies. Maybe try some self portraits from a mirror, and try drawing your hands in various positions. Keep it up!

    Here's my sketchbook!
