Hello! This is my first post on CA (I wanted to post for a long time,but always got scared when I saw the works of the others and then mine.... ).
Anyways, I am 16 years old (turned 17 few days ago DX ) and I have been drawing "seriously" for about 2 years.(seriously - trying to draw from life,study anatomy and the stuff around.....well,as much as seriously as a 15 yr old can )
Crits much much welcome!

Pretty cool stuff I'm digging the anime look.
Well finally my scanner is working again!! X__X
Anyways, here are some new things (some of them are a bit old...but Im thinkng of re-drawing them)
AAAnd thanks for the two replies! I didnt expect even that XD
1.pic - is the newest, done out of boredom....(20 min)
2. - this one took me a while, drawn and shaded only with a mechanical pencil (it was hell)(3-4 hrs)
3. Ive tried a caricature....and I have failed XD (15 min)
4. Im not even sure what it is...at first it was supposed to be a geisha,than kabuki player, than a transvestite and in the end...something from everything D: (15 min)

some older studies from my sketchbook.....sorry for the messiness, but the pics got a bit smudged
Some more pics (concepts and more studies hopefully will come soon)
Damn that Geisha is ugly- she looks like she can fight though!!! Haha. I like the style that you drew her. Actually, all your stuff looks pretty cool. I really dig the classical/life studies.
My only critique so far is your first pic of the anime chick with the striped stockings- her weightlessness bugs me for some reason. I think it works well with the other women but for some reason it looks unintentional in this first drawing.
Other than that- just keep posting.

LateNiteHype - haha, thanks, yeah, that geisha is actually a man (and was supposed to look a bit....ugly)
Hey you've got some good drawing skills...which will improve a lot if you continue the way you are...all your studies are promising...just keep at it!!!!!!
hey panda, thats some really nice work here. i`m sure if you keep drawing you will improve fast... i`m lookin forward to see more!
Nice studies, all I'll I can say is that if you're this good at such a young age and you keep at it you'll be sure to become a fantastic artist!
It's nice to see some classical studies. I love the one of the bust. That drapery must have taken a long time!! Post some more!

Hey man, good start for sure. Keep doing them anatomy sketches and draw much from life. I recommend Burne Hogarths books, I love them. Also coo that you study some of the old masters, Michelangelo etc. They sure earned the word "master". The heads in your last post looks a bit odd, again, Burne Hogarth! See if you can find Drawing The Human Head, got everything from different headshapes and proportions to anatomy and facedetails.
Prophet - thanks, I will
lema - thanks
Sarcophagus - thanks, Ive got those books and theyre great!
Shobunkin - yeah, it was hell sometimes, but I enjoyed it overall
Chermilla - thanks
okay, back from holidays, time for some old studies
(phoot studies from Jack hamms book)
(photo ref....I know, I suck doing just photo refs...)
(hand study, Jack Hamm)
(pose found on one yoga site)
(Im actually proud of this one... Hogarth book)
(this sucks....photo ref of one statue, but now I see how I ... messed up the proportions
(aand my firts attempt on some serious male chara design)
hopefully its ok to post pics like these.....
paintings from my "art class" , mostly temperas, but on the next lessons Im finally going to use oils! cant wait to try them out!
Finally got around to draw....presenting some new studies....(few obvious Rubens studies....the others are without refs. )
again, crits are very welcome.
