Skip to the end for improved studies.
After lurking around for a good few months I'm going to take the plunge and start my own sketchbook.
I'm currently 17, interested in art but have come up against a giant drawing block, hopefully you guys will be able to give me advice, critique and tell me where i am going wrong! I'm also using this sketchbook to backup all of my drawings and to see for myself how much i can improve over my time on this site.
I'm going to post every single drawing, i make. Even if its horrible its the only way i will learn! my strengths currently are in graphite drawings, but i would love to one day be able to master photoshop.
anyway, let the havoc begin!

Attempting to work on shadows and reflections, they seem to be the most fun.
What are the best things to draw as practice?
Second image is a quick Photoshop sketch i started. Its the same juggling ball as on the second page i uploaded.
Still steaming along! Please post any critique you have!

Your graphite drawing is certainly showing as one of your strongest strengths given by details and contrast drawings in the first sketch. You've got a keen eye for details in a couple of sketches. That's a good start because learning how to draw every detail is a step toward becoming a better artist by having yourself trained to see every detail, every color, and every bit of everything.
To answer your question, yes, Intros 2 is one of good Wacom tablets to use. It doesn't matter what brand you're using as long as you learn how to master it with comfort and able to develop your painting skills through it. Your photoshop sketch of the blue-and-yellow ball is starting off strong because it shows sharp details in colors balancing each other out as well as the spot of light.
Keep it up with a couple of sketches.

Sat down for a while and started drawing a red wine bottle.
I Started drawing straight from the bottle neck, and thus got the proportions wrong, along with many other things. However I like the look of the top of the bottle still. Note to self - Dont move the wine bottle halfway through drawing.
I need to learn to plan things better...
Many thanks for the comment!
Gary, we all know that you are better than me
All of these drawings are done in graphite mate
The scissors are my favorite thing out of the lot so far! hoping to do more in that style.
I really appreciate the kind words, i wont disappoint! Color picking on photoshop is really hard for me, the ball sketch was an anomaly...

Trying Photoshop again, (from life as usual)
Finding it really hard to block out Colours correctly, more practice is needed obviously
First is a Banana skin in a mug
second is the reflection in the lamp on my desk
