    Pretty much a beginner... seeking guidance! =)

    Hi there and thanks for atleast having a look at my thread! I'm a 17 year old student in my last year of school. Lately I've found myself itching to draw more and more, so I started reading around on this website and some people have really inspired me to give it a go!

    So, I'm pretty much a beginner at drawing/sketching, and would very much like to improve pretty much all aspects of it! I'd love to be able to draw realistic faces/people using just a pencil and paper, however I dont really know where I should start. Drawing shapes/anatomical sketches/shading/from imagination/still life stuff?

    I've done a few sketches of my hands so far, and a couple of drawings that have been copied from books which have turned out ok, but as soon as I try draw a figure it seems to merge into a random mess of lines =(. However, I will try and post some of my drawings here if i can work out how! (just gotta workout this external link think.. hehe)

    So yeah, any critisisms (spelt right?) or tips would be much appreciated!

    Thanks for having a look! Cheers,

    Well, posting images would be a huge help for us to help you. As for where to start, do anything and everything, figures and what's in front of you at any given moment. Even if it is a random mess, show it. You'll improve.
