    Turning 17 huh? Planning on going to art school? You seem to have a pretty decent foundation - pro instruction could mold that into some formidable skill.

    man that's a lot of work to put up. there is a lot of nice work in here and I like the playful stuff. The rant / stream of thought drawings are very intricate.

    keep on drawing I would like to see more.

    How recent are these?

    Talking

    I can see your linework and shading improve by the end of this thread ! I think you have a heavy hand and overwork your stuff with darks. Try and be lighter and then add in darks. Good job so far!

    You're pretty far along for a 17 yr old - much further than I was! Keep up the studies - I really liked the skull studies. What's the portfolio for? Or I should say...which school, or program? That can alter significantly what should be in it...Look forward to seeing more!

    Looking good. My suggestion would be to slow down on softer shadows sometimes. It seems like you use fast, hatchy marks for all the shadows in some images and it's good to mix it up.

    I can tell you are alot more comfortable and more trained at drawing from observation. Your skull drawings and some of your portraits are done very well; however, your figure drawings done without reference are flat and show difficulties with anatomy. I'm only guessing you didn't use reference, because problems are showing up where you usually don't have problems. I would spend more time working with anatomy. When you get that down I'm sure you'll be capable of making some pretty sweet art. Actually, I'm struggling to learn anatomy right now myself; check out my sketchbook and critique it. Just because I'm critiquing your work doesn't mean my work isn't at all flawless either. Anyway, you got potential, just make sure you apply what you know from observation and translate it over to your sketches w/out reference.

    Hi dashi! Thought I'd take a look at your stuff.. You have some really nice things here. Your shading is crazy good.. Something I think I will always struggle with, but I'm still trying!

    I really like that tiger. You are doing very well for 16 and I wish you all the luck with art school!!!

    Happy early bday!

    Oh man, you're only 16? Well then your right where you need to be. Since your in high school, do as much observational work as you can, but stay alert to your subjects. When I was in high school everybody sat at their post drilling out the same old flat, well-rendered pieces (rendering is not the ultimate discipline). There's a difference between drawing by what you see and what you understand. If you want to put yourself miles ahead of your peers do lots of studies from life (don't just sit and render). haha, that sounds really cheesey, but seriously it's true. Are you a senior, and have you been putting together a portfolio? If so, post it and we can give you some advice on what to include or work on.

    The shading on those skull sketches have to be my favorite! Nice cross-hatching, dude!
