    Jaedin Always first sketchbook.

    This is my first ever sketchbook (literally, the first drawing is the first one i ever did).

    My 5th most recent drawing, this one of Shailene Woodley who plays Tris Prior in the new movie Divergent. The hair on her face was exceedingly difficult to draw, but I think that it turned out pretty awesomely.

    The very first serious drawing that i ever did, not bad for a first try. It is of Chrissy Costanza, the lead singer of Against the Current, my favorite band.

    It was done with regular #2 HB pancil, Eraser-mate Eraser, and regular printer paper due to lack of better materials.

    Portrait #2, this one of my favorite solo artist, Taylor Swift.

    I was limited to rather light pencils at that moment, so it lacks definition.

    This, my 3rd drawing, is of Tiffany Alvord. She is one of my favorite YouTube singers and also happens to be a wonderful model for drawing.

    I was once again having technical difficulties that limited me to relatively light pencils, so there is still a bit of shading to do.

    A result of testing several different techniques, i had to put it in the for of an actual picture because i cannot bring myself to just draw a page of random stuff.

    Really cool stuff! I like Shailene Woodley's portrait best, it looks sweet. ^^
    You're starting out the same way that I did (I'm a beginner too), so I'll just tell you what I've been told many times and what helped me a ton:
    don't oversmudge (focus on the lines)and try to draw real people (family, friends, yourself in the mirror etc) instead of photos, as they flatten the form and stuff. And "push the values!" - the best advice I've ever gotten on drawing xD
    Your proportions seem nice, well, for sure better than mine xD. But I'd suggest picking up Andrew Loomis's books, I have just started using them and they're awesome, often recommended on this forum.

    Good luck!

    Done to test/practice different shading techniques. It did not turn out as well as I hoped (it certainly does not do her justice), but is still worth posting. I may improve it at it at some point in the future, but as for right now I am moving on.

    The second drawing that I ever attempted. I like how it all turned out with the exception of her face.

    This was my first attempt at a mechanical pencil only drawing. I think that it turned out fairly well, although the shading is a bit too uneven. I used a hard gum eraser as well as a kneaded eraser and a mechanical pencil with 2mm 2b lead.

    This is the tenth drawing that I have ever done. It is of Chis Hemsworth as Thor from The Avengers and the Thor movies.

    It was done using Kneaded and hard gum erasers, 4H-8B wood pencils, a mechanical pencil with 2B lead, and a large blending stump.

    A portrait that I did of a friend who works as a musician at the Oklahoma Renaissance Fair. She is absolutely awesome and the reference perfectly captures her personality.

    It was done with ~A3 paper, 4H-5B graphite pencils, gum erasers, and blending stumps.

    Any helpful comments or advice would be appreciated. I am still a beginner who has not taken an art class since I was 8, so even the most basic advice would be helpful.

    This is a drawing that I did of Hayley williams. This was somewhat of an experiment on increasing my drawing speed in preparation for in person portraits.

    This particular drawing is unusual in that it was done completely without the use of pencils. All that I used was graphite powder, a paper towel, a tortillion, and an eraser.

    It was done in just under two hours on A4 paper.
