    Kieron's Sketchbook

    Hello all

    I am Kieron. I currently stay in South Africa and started to try to learn to draw on the 29th of February 2014.

    I do not have a teacher or tutor, so all that you see is from what I have picked up from start.

    Below is my first 3 drawings, from first to last.

    1)

    Nice start here, keep looking for more shades in your pencil drawings, push the darks and the lights

    Insanity is the key!
    Also, studies are a key. And passion is a key. Also, so are inspiration, motivation and dedication. Talent can be a key. Insomnia can also be a key, depression is a sad rusty little key. Damn, artists need one hell of a keyring.

    Hey! Welcome! Im not sure if its just the scan or photos that are making your pictures turn out so light but I would recommend a softer pencil so you can push the darks more. Perhaps one of these for your collection http://www.prismacolor.com/products/...g/ebony-pencil ! Good luck!
