    Book of Facepalmery

    New Stuff on last page
    Yo, I'm D and I will be 14 as of April 2011. Recently I chose art as a GCSE topic so my goal is to improve as much as possible in a year. Hope you enjoy my random scraps of "art".
    C&C are welcome of course.

    Yep, getting a scanner or finding a way to keep your cam steady plus a good light would help a lot. Other than that looks like a good start sketches show promise, now just keep posting !

    Woww, 13 years old and you already seem well on your way! Not that age matters, but it's always impressive to have mad skills at a young age.

    Looking good so far, keep up the great work! Love the mouth studies, don't see those too often hehe. Seems like you draw a lot, that is always good.!

    hey D!
    very good start, you seem quite good at faces. the studies of the facial bits are great
    a cc that comes to mind is maybe try and be a bit more patient with shading, it seems a bit scratchy in places
    also you dont ever seem to have a complete figure drawn in any of these drawings, which is hard to do so that might be an area to look to
    keep going!

    Painting depends on your state of mind and everything affects your state of mind. Use music, food, your workspace, your relationships and your intention to your advantage. Create an ecosystem of creativity for yourself.


    [...] what concerns us here is not imagination itself, but rather creative imagination; the faculty that helps us pass from the level of conception to the level of realization.

    I really wish I started when I was 13. I would be insanely good by now if I did. But noooo i was to busy playing video-ma games and T.V. - Don't fall into the trap of video-ma games! Just focus on drawing for the most part! Just keep doing w.e. with drawing. Draw stuff from life if you want and maybe people from photo's. But mainly just don't stop. Just keep drawing and by the time you hit 19 I can almost guarantee that you'll be awesome and I'll be 25 and jealous

    actually probably 24 and jealous cause of my late birthday but hey.

    My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

    Wow, you're so young! It's great you've discovered your love for art at such an early age. Practice a lot of life drawing and take some courses if you can. Maybe you can even find an artist who lives near you who could give you private lessons and mentor you.

    I was honestly surprised when I looked at your sketchbook and then noticed your age!
    When I was thirteen... i tiped leikthis nd idrwed mch worse!!!!! ^^'' xD

    But anyways, it's brilliant you've decided to make your own sketchbook on here, and already you're doing some art studies. I really have nothing to crit yet, so just keep working at a steady pace the way you are doing so and you're well on your way.
    Keep up the good work!

    This is a fantastic start! I recommend doing some perspective work and some more anatomy sketches to power up your technique.

    Yeah, I usually try to recommend to people who are "starting out and want to get better" (not necessarily saying you're starting out...) to work out perspective and forms first. You need to understand how to put forms into perspective and understand how to use a vanishing point to properly put an object, character, etc. into a composition. Don't be one of those "this is my first BG, HELP" people who can competently paint figures, but have no idea how to put them into an environment properly.

    Form helps to build these figures to a higher level. Compartmentalizing the body and working with the study of movement etc. will also help you begin to understand the human form more.

    Keep going. This is a great time to be enthusiastic about your art. And nice start (of a sketchbook).

    Wow you have some talent there (dsacc), I would have loved to have had the opportunity you have now at 13 years old (internet with a lot of talented artist who enjoy helping other artist). Besides what everyone else said only thing I can think to add is too study your observational skills, when you draw from life or pictures try to apply that knowledge from imagination or memory as well, eventually your skills will be remarkable. Good Luck

    Thanks everyone for the comments! I appreciate them a lot.
    Anyway, only a few sketches for today (although these are quite old). I'll post more soon. C&C welcome as always!

    You've very talented for your age, keep on practicing and you'll make some great progress. My advice for you would be to concentrate on the basics a bit, rendering simple spheres, cubes, etc. and get comfortable thinking in shapes and forms. Keep it up!

    Your face studies are pretty good =)! I'll be better if you also incorporated shading in it!

    Hey guys, thanks again for all the comments! Anyways, not much here just some sketches. As advised, I have been practicing my anatomy (posemaniacs is a life saver); the other one's a gerudo. Yeah, so thats basically it, I will try to update more frequently in the future.
    C&C as always.

    whoa dude, you're really good! I'm going to be 15 this year and I'm doing art GCSE as well, that's probably one of the main reasons I signed up here, I really want to improve but I still need to open a sketch book.

    keep drawing!

    Just keep drawing and don't be afraid to experiment. If you can find life classes near you, go. I first took my son when he was about your age. Raid the art department at your school and get them to let you try out every single medium you can and make a mega mess.

    Got to approve of Gerudos. They had the best theme tune aswell.


    BUT I will move my nerdiness aside and get down to buisness.
    Insane amount of Posemaster pictures there, really liking it.

    Another thing you might find fun, though horribly challenging first time round, is practicing different face angles. My first attempt was grizzly, infact I think it's still on the first page of my sketchbook.
    You probably know of Loomis already, right? But just incase~

    For some reason, I never come here before but now I have my "let's visit the strange souls's sb who came into my humble sb" day
    Others told you what they were doing when they were 13... I was a smart little one back then, I read Science and several books and did math all the time... Math camps in summer, and so on... I stopped drawing at 7 and had no clue I will start it again...
    It would be so much better if I started earlier but whatever, one should start at one point (if she/he has a fate to have something with drawing ) and never give up and never sink into "I'm good enough, I don't need to be better, why bother...etc." - that's the worst I can imagine, years without improvement, I saw people who wished to be good but didn't put effort into that *shudder*.
    Study, have fun, use your imagination, whatever
    You're impressive but you just started I'm not full with great advices but there are others who are.
    {you draw faces, good, good... another potention victim for my inner critic ~
    btw, study the human skull }

    Great work! It's really good that you've gotten serious at your age, all I was drawing was anime. Anyway, you may want to try out this site as an alternative to posemaniacs, a lot of people think it's better since it uses real people. It has animals too! Good luck, keep it up!

    Like other people in this thread, I wish I started drawing seriously when I was 13. It's great to start at your age !

    I like the way you draw faces, especially in posts #17, #13 and the great spirale hair woman in #3. I really like their elegant lines.

    Hope to see new updates soon !

    Good start! Especially considering your age. I don´t know if you noticed but when your (drawn!) teeth seem odd and do not fit with the overall image.
    You may want to look into that. Anyway have fun progressing,

    Thanks everyone for the comments! To be honest I always thought I was pretty crap but now I feel better, so cheers .
    Anyway, I took a break from CA but during that time I drew 4 pictures for a contest that would be the cover of next years school planner/diary thingys, I dont expect to win but I have nothing better to do. My favourites are probably the 1st and 3rd, but they're all rather average .
    C&C as always please!

    Cute updates. My 15yo is doing GCSE art as well, but his teacher likes contemporary stuff, which not great for learning. Hope you have a better teacher.
