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. I'm going to try to post at least 1 picture every day. Critiques and advice would be greatly appreciated!
Anyway, here's my first post: 2 quick still lifes of a styrofoam cup and a pair of broken headphones. (Sorry for bad quality)
Here's some studies I did from Figure Drawing For All It's Worth.
Here's some more Loomis studies
Here's a figure drawing of myself, a hand study, and still lifes.

Here's a drawing of my 10 year old niece (drawn from life)
Here's some more Loomis studies. I can't wait until I get to the muscles.
More studies from Loomis.
Here's a portrait that I've been working on. (I used a photo for reference)
More Loomis studies. (I also tried inking the skeleton so the bones would be more easier to see)
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).
