    side note:I had an old account named Bo-ee but i used facebook for the login which i didnt understand how to use.

    HELLO PLEASE HELP ME IMPROVE!!!
    I do not like copying from life or anything. But if u have u disagree please tell me the reason!!!

    I would post some of my works/sketches coz it is hard to attach images with so many settings

    I am 15, and started realism when i became 15 (january 8)
    i would post oldest-newest (depending if i remember lol)
    I started with crosshatching (just learnt it) greatly inspired by buttonface in flickr

    ***second one from a pic in flickr forgot what...

    Half of that size would be good, I think continue practicing! ^^ maybe with a pencil, your lines would be more fluid, and it would be easier to practice sketching (and you can erase with the rubber too).

    continuation of old sketches (like a month ago?)

    history when i got serious in art... pencil (crosshatching) -> colorpencils -> watercolour....
    Im clearly rushing things T-T because I started late in practicing fine arts (in my thoughts, is 15 late?)
    Ive always drawn anime and some landscape and still life (like about 7 yrs ago? which i stopped also),,, my focus now is emotions and living things.

    Good start, 15 is not too late or too early to start, just dont set any form of restrictions upon yourself. Draw from life, and get some books, so you can study anatomy, perspective, composition, etc. Theres a a few listed here.

    Oh and don't rush, you'll learn alot more when your are going at a steady pace. Just practice, alot.

    How do you not outline? By not outlining, of course! You can build up areas of tone, using a small (#1, or #0) brush for tight areas.Where you have a line, dip the tip of your brush slightly in the water, and go over the fine edges until it is blended. Do this a couple of times over the area. Some artists start with a blue colored-pencil for the underlying drawing. The blue recedes back into the painting nicely.
    Google watercolor forums and free tips...They're certainly out there.

    Good Luck, and Happy Painting!

    I forgot to add that you can lighten the outline by lifting off the heavy areas with a sponge, and then dabbing it with a rag, to dry it. It won't eliminate the line , but it will subdue it.
    If your using ink, or black watercolor try diluting it a little, so it does not leave as heavy of a line. try also to construct the forms (first in light pencil, or blue pencil) from the inside out, rather than define them with a strong contour.
    Hope this helps...
