this is my first time posting artwork here.
I'm 15, and I'm trying to make up for the 3 years I wasted at Deviantart.
Anyways, here's some stuff I did two days ago.

some pics I did today and yesterday.
Crits or comments anyone?
Hi and welcome on CA!
Your sketches are looking good so far, try to add some more shading, to avoid flat looking objects... Hang in those anatomy studies, sometimes its boring but in the end it pays off i guess
so just keep on practicing, thats what we all should do ^^
You're on the right track so far. Here's a few books that got me on my way, only wish I could have started in on them as early as you
And finally do tons of life studies. Happy sketching.
Thanks for the comments guys. Yeah, I've seen the Bridgeman and Loomis books recommended here on CA hundreds of times. If my book store or library had them I would get them.
Here's another sketch for today, comments and crits always welcome.
An anatomy study.
I wouldn't mind a crit or two, guys
Hey, I'm 15 too!
It's terrible that dA sucks people in like that =/
Don't worry about it man, I think that you have to post a good ten pictures before the next person posts back =) (My experience anyway), but I don't think there's much else for you to do except keep drawing.
But one thing is to make sure that the features are not pasted on, meaning that make sure subtle shadows are given to set them in the face.
Hope that makes sense. Closeup head/upper body studies make it easier to figure those out.
looking good kevin. i'm really surprised. you've come along way, and are still moving swiftly. got anything digital? or do you prefer doing pencil and paper drawings?
ps. hope you're showing your parents this stuff, so they can understand what you want to be whan you grow up.
oh, and as for a critique, don't forget to look at your own hands and fingers.. the middle finger is the longest, and so forth. the charcters fingers to seem to be unrealistic at the moment.
Schools are closed because of snow today, so I had time to do this. Most people don't draw hands first thing in the morning on a snow day, but I'm weird like that
One for today, used a National Geographic magazine for reference. Comments and crits welcome.
Had fun with these....not the best arms or legs though.
looking good so far.
i think you need to get more contrast in, its all a bit to grey. like middletones only, try getting nailing down more of the scale and youll see itll look better instanly.
other then that, its looking good. keep at it
Long time no post. But I've still been drawing.
