    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.

    The woman with brown hairs is probably THE ONLY sketch i did using loomis' technique correctly.

    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...

    Definitely keep reading the Loomis books. That's all I had for a while and I'm sure they helped me out a bunch. The painting of your sister from life is great. Keep working from life and reference and imagination. All are important. Good luck.

    Your improvement from first post to last one is dramatic! Keep drawing from life and from reference. Nature will always be your most important teacher. Try to find reference that will help you learn more effectively. In the picture you posted, the girl is wearing make-up, which will confuse you as you are trying to draw volume and lighting. Also, try to find a subject that is clearly lit. The lighting in that photo is kind of diffuse and from many directions. That will make it harder to portray volume in your drawing. If you go to the "photo sets" section of characterdesigns.com, there are many photos that make good artist's reference. (http://www.characterdesigns.com/inde...page=photosets)
    If you produce drawings that are bad, it means that you are pushing your limits and you are learning something from it, so don't be afraid of falling on your face regularly.
    Keep up the good work.

    WATERCOLOR

    the bird is my sister. NO MY SISTER IS NOT a BIRD. She was playing the DS so i copied her pose but then i changed her body coz i always imagine her as a bird.
    the flowers with the pink lines is from life ( i love the neighbors flowers~)
    the bird, girl with bob has photo reference (i will post my references later)
    and the sideview girl from imagination...
    the bird, bob-girl and sideview girl use with Canson watercolor paper which i just bought
    I use Reeves watercolor (I WANT PRANG WATERCOLOR SO BADLY)
    Why does my watercolors looks like acrylic i think its bcoz reeves has darkcolors?

    Well, let's see. It seems like a lot of the colors that you're using to shade with just seem like darker versions of the object colors. You don't -seem- to be making use of reflected colors, and in certain places, the shadows lack uniformity. In general, if the light source is warm, the shadows will be cool. If the light source is cool, then warm shadows ahoy, matey.

    And here's my sketchbook. Help me out with some c&c?
