Hi,This is Leighblack.
I've been reading MindCandyMan's thread for quite a long time now.It's really inspiring.
I was going to start a sketchbook ages ago,just been procrastinating.Mostly because of fear and laziness.
This year I finally pick up the pencils and some books and start copying some drawings.
The books that I'm using :
1.Gene Franks's The Art of Pencil Drawing
2.Mark & Mary Willenbrink's Drawing for the Absolute Beginner
Hope to make some friends here and also some supports would be nice : )

The line drawing itself is pretty good, however I'd suggest adding darker tones to your drawings. What type of pencils are you using (HB, 2B,etc)?
I know you want to click here. Just do it, don't be afraid!
Thanks for the suggestion.I use H,HB,F,B,2B and 3B.
The actual drawing has darker color,maybe I need to learn how to use the scanner in a batter way.
