This time, there are other sketches and experiments.
First, the colored pictures..
>> Moleskine stuff
Here I tried to change my drawing style a little bit. Maybe one can see, that I'm obsessed of Final Fantasy XDD. Whatever... I like this page very much and I hope you like it, too

You're doing great for 16!
Keep pushing yourself with anatomy and faces, looking forward to seeing how this develops. Keep it up!
Edit: I've noticed you dont draw hands often, like they're hiding in your pictures. Try some practice on them!

Sadako-xD for checking out my stuff and the kind words. Actually I am not sure I would say I am a super pro, but I already create art for my income. In fact this weekend I created storyboards for a short film, am presently working on a character design for a client, and working on my own comic book. In addition I am looking for more work and just submitted some samples to a company. So I am keeping out of trouble. Anyway even though I am making money with art I have to keep learning and pushing myself as you can not stop growing wth these skills.
With your work I would say you are doing the right things by posting, getting feed back etc. I like that you are doing figure work. Mix in some fast gesture drawings, keep drawing from life. Draw friends, family, pets, environment, etc. Play with shapes compositions, and layout. Also keep playing with what your imagination so it stays fun! Remember we are all a world of shapes and forms. Just keep at it if you have the interest!

@Elz: Thank you very much for your Feedback! Yeah.. hands... they are katastrophies XD well, yes I will try to make one
@Hipalien: Thank you for the information and the tips!! *___*
New stuff ^^
Finally, I finished reading the awesome book "Flesh House" (Blut und Knochen) by Stuart MacBride.
I highly recommend this thrilling piece - you just have to read it! :'D
The picture was also influenced by the book.
Guess, who's that ^^".

Hey Sadako! Your Hinata Hyuga looks very nice. Big fan
Shiva is nice too, as well as the candle~
My only request is that you don't watermark the image, it really disrupts the flow and almost no other artist, professional or amateur, does that
please keep posting!

Hey nice start to a sketchbook, especially for your age i'd reccomend learning the basics and focusing on one thing at a time so if your thinking about drawing faces study the planes and structure of them and then keep applying what you learn at the end of your studies you'l improve super quick , But dont forget to keep it fun!

@vices: Thank you very much! Oh well, I already saw this on some artist pages and once I had a problem with a guy, who took my artworks and he posted them on his homepage, so because of this fact I did this. But I won't do it anymore (cause I don't care anymore..)
@fudgeloaf: Thank you for your kind reply ^^. Yes I always try to analiyze the whole face, what are the basics and so one - I think it's a really good practise . And of course - Fun is the main thing =)
@SenEnd: Thanks!^^ I will
@Farquad: No problem (thank you, too )
Finally, I finished part two of my project for the art lesson.I think I really have to practise this "painting with brush" XD. (I'm always so shaky o..o)
(sry.. it's a little bit blurred --" It was too big for my scanner - A2-3)
As I already said, the picture was painted with brush and also with colored pencils. It took about 6 hours or something like that.
Well, for my very low skills in this area... it's quite good XD.
And here's a sketch out of my Moleskine
If you wonder, why I always write these strange texts: they are often just titles or parts of songs I just heard while I drew
Here I was listening to Linkin Park (suprise! XD) - "Burning in the skies" and "The Catalyst". (It arised in the german lessons today XD)
I always wanted to draw something like that ^^.
Everything was drawn from my mind - without references.
Muhahaha (evil laugh XD) - Bye, bye

Your work is pretty eye smacking for a 16 year old, really, I wasnt half as good when I was 16 XD. You have a very distinctive style with your faces, something akin to a transition between a normal human face with a little anime flavored topping.
Also, the candle looks very real. The wax inside really does look like its being seen from behind glass! My only advice on that one(and digital painting in general) is that using the blurry edged brush will give you undesired results more often that not. At first it seems like a great blending tool(which it IS, but in very specific occasions) But it's better to use harder brushes; the reflection on the wax blurrs out in a way which makes it look like it had random white patches on top, whereas a hard brush would give you a solid, clear reflection.
And lastly, its always nice to give the pic a bakground, or at least a basic color to help contrast the shiny glass parts.
Either way, great SB!

The candle digital is very nice. I like the painting you did for art class as well.
I would suggest maybe you study some noses from life and from different angles (because now all your noses seem a bit flat along the bridge)
and try drawing people around you as well. notice how the body changes when someone sits. The torso, the arms. It won't look like the sitting girl from your sketchbook in #10.
keep it up, keep posting!
