    Sketchbook of Roo.

    Hi my name is Rossouw, i am 16 years old and i live in Tring, near watford in England. My family is highly artistic, and i would like carry on the trend, i have recently taken a keen interest in my drawing skills (or lack there of) and stumbled accross this site while looking at the brilliant art of Jason Chan, i was amazed by the helpful and nurishing community that is the base of this website.

    I would be very grateful if you could tell me anything i am doing wrong, and try to steer me in the right direction, although i have ofcourse drawn before, this is the first time ive tried to conciously improve, so bare with my crappy (for lack of a better word) drawing ability.

    I will atempt to draw at least once or twice a day from now on.

    Thank you in advance for your patience.

    EDIT: DRAWINGS AND ANATOMY STUDY - SCROLL DOWN

    If you really can't get the image attatchment manager to work, upload it on some other site like http://www.photobucket.com (you will have to make a free account) and use the insert image button in the reply box. Once you click that you just paste a direct link to the image. However its very unusual that the attatchment manager isn't working. It always works with me.

    Just follow the link: http://tinypic.com/

    No register, no hassle, just upload it and it will show up three links afterwards. You choose the one that says "bulletin boards/forums" and copy&paste that code into your post. And hit " Submit Reply"

    Rock and roll, bro. Really great stuff, it's a good beginning. The drawing of that lamp base is really nice, I would try and get more contrast going into the drawing though, when you work on things for a long time you tend to forget to look at the drawing as a whole. Try squinting your eyes to see where the big dark and light shapes are when your looking at a subject.

    Great drawing from V for Vendetta, really great use of detail, it looks very rich. The ipod looks good too, again I think you could sharpen up some of the details.
    Try to not draw too many lines when you just need to draw one. Try and draw the line you want with just one stroke, it might not seem helpful at first but the more you do it the better it gets.

    Let me know if anything is not clear.
    Nice start, I can't wait to see more!
