    Jackson's Sketchbook

    Hello there, I'm Jackson. I'm 15 years old and I'd like to become a cartoonist someday. I've been drawing quite a bit recently (every day for the past month) and I thought it'd be a good idea to post some of my stuff here. It'll make it easier for me to track my progress and it'll be nice to get some critiques as well. At the moment, I'm not very good at all, but hopefully posting here will change that.

    The creation of a great sense of humor, very good works
    If you paint only the beautiful, you're telling only half the story.

    Haven't drawn much this week. Here are some terrible-looking political cartoons I did for a school assignment (my attempt at coloring is pathetic) and a page of figure drawings.

    I haven't been posting very frequently, but I'm working hard and drawing every day. Here are some studies. Sorry about the poor image-quality.

    You have a very observant eye for someone so young, well done! I've seen too many young people who feel to proud to observe and learn and think they can draw everything by heart without learning about their subject first. You're certainly on the right path.
    Maybe show us a bit more diversity. If you want to be an cartoonist, I'm curious how you adapt your knowledge of anatomy into cartoons. I see a few examples here and there.. but always keep moving towards your objectives if cartoons is your goal. For example, now that you have a basic understanding of anatomy, start exaggerating proportions. There is a surprising amount to be learned from (good) caricature artists. Even if they're a bit gaudy sometimes, caricature artists usually have a good eye for what "defines" a certain person, and exaggerate this to humerous effect. Not to say your stuff has to be "funny" (some cartoons are dead serious), but it's a good source to learn from.

    Amphsix: Thank you so much for the kind words and advice! I'll definitely start experimenting more with exaggeration and hopefully it'll make figure drawing easier and more enjoyable.

    I recently got a tablet, so I've spent a lot of time drawing digitally. It's almost been a week and I'm still trying to get the hang of this (I'm getting better...slowly, but surely). Using GIMP, I tried drawing Spider-man without reference (too lazy to draw webbing)...not pretty. And there are some studies as well.
