Hungry for some progress
Hello, I have been watching over sketchbooks there for a long time now. It always inspires me. Or discourages because the art here seems too perfect and unreachable for me.
Iím almost eighteen and that terrifies me because of so many wasted years.. But I donít want to give up as long as itís possible to improve. I want to get better so much, I want to have skills I canít imagine having. Therefore I would be utterly grateful for some help. Will try to post regularly and maybe something good will turn out from it.
(Everything is mostly drawn from reference. Itís one more habit I want to change..)

Great start! 18 years, not so late I started at 23 and you're way ahead of me
Don't give up because it's going great!
Reference can't hurt, as long as you use it and not copy it (that's what I get told )
Help me improve, critiques and criticism are welcome:

SpectreX, yeah, but I think I do copy) Thank you!
Don’t have much to show, these weeks weren't exactly the good ones. There were a lot of ugly drawings. I also was trying to paint digitally lately (it didn’t work out yet, obviously). I’ll continue Loomis’ “Drawing Head and Hands” after returning back home from another country (next week). It isn’t easy so I’ll try harder... Same goes for digital painting. Even through I’m embarrassed of my “productivity”, I want to believe it won’t become the usual thing.

really digging the studies dude Keep up the good work. Digital painting is hard though, I hope you'll feel comfortable enough with your paintings to post them here soon!

regrets are great when you use their energy to boost yourself. dont let regrets stop you drawing, put them to use to dig into what really matters to you!
the key is persistence. draw everyday, practice what you need to
. looks like youre on the right path right now, keep on good luck
Painting depends on your state of mind and everything affects your state of mind. Use music, food, your workspace, your relationships and your intention to your advantage. Create an ecosystem of creativity for yourself.
[...] what concerns us here is not imagination itself, but rather creative imagination; the faculty that helps us pass from the level of conception to the level of realization.
