Hi! I'm 18 and I've been a long time lurker here at CA.org and always found it inspiring to see people starting from scratch, honing their skills and then after years of practice making their living as an artist. Seeing the progress of people like Algenpfleger, Sam Carr and Miles really hit me and was sort of a wake up call for me. They've proven to me that anything is possible if I put my mind into it and stay dedicated. So I've finally decided to start my own sketchbook since I now have a scanner and possess mediocre painting skills. I'm also going to start attending a life drawing class in the fall. My current weaknesses are color and doing stuff from imagination. This thread will be updated regularly and showcase my journey towards awesomeness. As a heads up I will be uploading tons of stuff I've done for the past four months so don't be alarmed if you think I'm practicing like a madman. Stay tuned!

Nice start but I think your studies are looking very clean and tight and I think you could do more studies if you would draw a bit looser and faster without so much preasure. keep it up! greetings

Plus at that time I needed a solid foundation in anatomy. Anyway, here's more boring anatomy stuff:
