    Oi and welcome

    I am 21 and I have been drawing since I was 3 or 5, something like that, I only started trying to learn at 20. Anyhoo, I only wish I learned what it looks like you are striving to learn at 14. Put some more work into the hands, Look at your own, they are the best references you will ever have just dont cut them to find the muscles, obviously, As far as heads go keep it up. Pay attention to the finer details, but your tutorial head isnt too bad at all. From the looks of it your drawings are based in life and that is the best teacher you will have. Keep it up you should have a ball.

    Nice work here, for just being 14 you're doing terific.

    Keep it up. I recomend loomis for the structure, but try working for a more realistic look. good luck.

    You've made a good start, and your pics from reference are generally alot stronger than your 'out of your head' pics.

    Just remember to get the basic underlying shapes of the skull correct first, then the rest eg: placement of features etc will become alot easily.

    Start with more basic shapes, like egg or circle shapes (whatever your personal preference) and then throw in the basic guide lines. Details last.

    Which Loomis book are you using? It looks like his cartooning book as opposed to his more realistic anatomy book. Just curious.

    Keep posting.

    Hey there.
    SEVANS came with a good suggestion, try to see the shapes behind every thing, draw them, then make out the form and put in the details.
    Keep us updated.

    hugs!

    Hey QXZi,
    You have agood start here and apparently the desire. You do need to work on the proportions and the anatomy. Work on trying the draw circles and ellipses freehand. Take a pencil or pen and draw circles and ellipses (ovals)over and over again in one place. Where the line begins to get darkest is where your best shape will be. Eventually, you can make less and less passes before getting a good shape. Heads have definite proportions. For example, it is typically the same distance from the top of the head to the eyes line as it is from the eye line to the chin. The eyes cut the head in half. The bottom of the nose is about half way from the eyes to the chin and the lips are about half way from the nose to the chin. Start there and I think the you will see alot of improvement in you head drawings. Head out to Barnes and Noble or Borders and take a look and their drawing anatomy books. You can also get all of the Andrew Loomis books on this site in PDF format. Good luck!!!

    Whatever you do, don't look at my Sketchbook and Painting Thread!

    that sure is a great start! immediatly recognized that fredflickstone-tutorial drawing

    i suggest combinng the loomis system you're learning with your life drawings and photo ref-drawings. just apply the "ball and plane"-scheme to your studies to get proportions and perspective right and it will improve even your master copies a lot. other than that, no big crits. you're doing just fine. thanks for dropping by my new sb.
