    Hello Mr Starfire, hopefully i'll be able to give you some general tips. Like everyone else will say you have to practice all the time. Thats probably the most fundamental advice, but you will see results quickly if you draw/paint in any spare time you have. As for colour work, you will have to learn some colour theory. Only a little knowledge of colours and value can go a long way. If you are trying to draw in a realistic style then studying from life is the key. Look at objects and their values and make studies. Anatomical and gestural studies will also help you understand the way the body is formed and how it moves. This will all help you in future studies or work done without a model or reference.

    There's so much to learn, but its all fun to do! I'll try and find some links I have for tutorials or books that may help in a while. I'll come back and edit this later.

    For posting images all you have to do is register and upload files at image hosting sites like or

    Good luck!
