Light's All Your Bandwith Are Belong To Us
Hey all, I am 13, and I just got into art about 14 months ago myself and have been enjoyingi t since.
Well, I decided to make a DSB to try and further myself in art. Or so people told me the effect would be... Well, I will try to post art here every day but probably wont always be able to. Please crit away, at any work. Comments and crits are appreciated. Still doing alot of profile view stuff, but will try to do some perspective stuff soon. Oh, and I know the hands are bad on the second one, but still would like advice on how to improve them.
NEW STUFF AT BOTTOM

keep it up the hard work. its coming along. the hand rendering on the second image is coming along nicely. i already talked to you about picking up a good book on perspective though

This is looking very impressive man and promissing. I can already see a lot of stuff coming along. And whomever gave you that little piece of advice was right on track man. You WILL get better with practice.
As for the hands i cannot give you any c&c on that cause i suck at it too. However what i would say maybe you should not be spending too much time on any one pic if you are trying to study it.
have a look at Rodrigo's stuff to see what i mean.http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=31720 lots of drawings from as many different views as you can think of. *S*

Hey man, what's up?
There are some good practices here, which is the first step. It's not just what you practice, but also HOW you practice. Develop good habits right from the beginning. The first two things I'd say are structure and confidence. Really work on the structure of the forms. The head studies you have here are a good start, but now pay attention to the different, minute forms; pay attention the different planes of the face. Differentiate the side planes from the front plane from the top plane from the bottom plane. Note where the changes take place: the part of the forehead where it starts to slope back toward the crown (change from front plane to top plane). That is what will really help you when drawing forms in perspective, structure, structure, structure. Also, look at anatomy reference because you will have to know what's going on on a subcutaneous level (beneath the skin). It's everything under the skin that gives it form.
Next is confidence. I see you going over your lines several times, or using several strokes to compile a single line. Do it in one. It's difficult at first, but I see you going over one line 3 or 4 times, so just do it once, and forget the other 3 times ;p It takes practice, but believe me, line economy is very important. If you go over each line 4 times, you're doing the drawing 4 times!! when you could've done 3 OTHER drawings!! Yeah. Keep it up though. Your practices are looking good... just start on a more anatomical level before you move into the rendering and whatnot. There's plenty of time yet for pretty pictures Peace homez!

Keep on rockin' those sketches, lil bro. The key to getting better is to do it a lot and study off your butt. You'll get a ton of good advice in here and you'll be above and beyond the rest in no time, just keep it up. Try and work from life when you can. If you try and capture the form an apple right in front of you it will help when you try and do more stuff like figures, etc. If you can get a good handle on the basics the rest will follow. Keep on truckin'.
