From zero to... we'll see :D
I'll do my best to publish my pathetic doodles here from time to time...
Feel free to critique the sh*t out of them please!
I'd love not to suck at drawing by the end of 2014's summer vacation.
I don't know if it's possible, but I'll try :3
Right now I'm making a list of how-to-draw books, which I'll most likely be able to buy in February when I'm on my trip to Ireland. Max three... Books in English are like 7x more expensive then those in my language... But those suck, so I prefer to pay more. xD I heard that Loomis and Hampton are good. If you have any recomendations, I will be very happy to hear them! ^^
(this is not an old work, uploaded here so that it can be my thumbnail xD)

Thanks, Minella! ^^
Yesteday I ordered 5 lead holders for 2mm leads. I found them online for less about 5zł (less than 2 dollars?) each! *super happy*
Drawing with a 5cm long pencils and having to sharpen them once in a few minutes was starting to get on my nerves...
I'm planning on buying 2H, 2B, 4B, 6B and 8B leads. In addition to that, I'd still carry my 0,5mm mechanical HB pencil, for quick sketches.
Is that a good set for a beginner?
Some of my today's drawings (I didn't have much time :<):
Exercises from my friend's book:
Quick sketches of roses and birds (with the help of Google Images xD):
My hands again:
And that's it for today... On the weekend I'll make sure to draw more.

Make sure to keep pushing your values (making your darks, darker and your 'whites' brighter) and it'll help your objects 'pop' a little more. If you're working exclusively in pencils, kneadable erasers are great for incorporating highlights.
Keep it up!SKETCHBOOK: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...1770&p=3729048
I once went to buy macaroni and came back with no macaroni, a new tablet, and monitor, so yeah, I can be impulsive.

Yeah, my drawings are a kinda dull-looking. I'm trying to push the values, but I tend to be a little "shy" with my pencil... xD
Here I focused on it, and it turned out weird (next time I'll try harder! done with a hb pencil):
Playing with colored pencils:
I also tried to draw a self-portrait but failed T_T

Still life I painted today (the brown dotted thingy is unfinished):
Trying to learn how to use colored pencils. Failing miserabely! They just don't listen to me >.<

Good idea sticking with the fundamentals. Still life's are a great exercise for learning. This last one is really good. Pushing the values as mentioned above has paid off I think and I love the energetic sketchy line quality. Rock on..
