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.

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
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
