Hi, I'm Kelly, and I'm 15. I found this site recently and I'm amazed at a lot of the work that I've seen. I'm not exactly sure what art career I would like to have when I'm older but since I really want to make my own comic book in the near future, I was thinking a comic book artist or storyboard artist would be ideal. I really want to improve my drawing skills, so I thought that making a sketchbook here would benefit me in the process. Critiques and advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hey Kelly, Nice start here. Loomis is definitely a good starting place. If you can get the proportions and gestures well rehearsed it will help you with everything else in art. I think value studies are more useful than detailed anatomy, but I am only just realising that and if you enjoy doing them it's not a bad thing. I look forward to seeing some updates and give me a shout if you need anything. If you can find a copy of Framed Ink by Marcos Mateu Mestre I'd recommend getting it (but it seems really expensive at the moment).
