    Peace, War, and Art

    Hello. My name is Ben. Im 14 years old and have really begun to take art seriously.
    I have created this SB so I can improve my skills, hopefully with some help from your critiques,
    and maybe one day have a profession in this field. I will try to update as frequently as possible. Thanks

    draw from life, draw from imagination, and if you don't know what something looks like, get a reference. drawing from life/reference will help build your visual database.

    I've found that there is a direct correlation of how much time I spend drawing to how much I improve.

    right now, studies are going to be what you want to focus on. But don't forget to keep it fun for yourself.

    looking better, if you are using reference, take your time to really try to draw all the relationships correctly. What I do is look at the diagonal angles that the different parts have [like shoulder to hip, or elbow to wrist, shoulder to wrist] and then try to match them on the page.

    and if you're not using reference....then use reference for studies.

    keep up the studies, they'll pay off big in the long run.

    Try to have more contrast in your line weight in appropraite places. It will make your drawings more intersting to look at and make them less flat. Nice start and welcome to the forums.

    Hey man, good start here. I'll just echo what the others have said: ANATOMY ANATOMY ANATOMY! The more time you spend on these studies, the quicker your imagination and life drawings will come to look better. Start at a place on the human body that interests you the most, and then either work up or down. DON'T SKIP ANYTHING.

    Right now, I'd work on the head and then go down, your eyes are looking like almonds (and they don't really look like that). Then work on the nose and mouth and you'll be close to finished studying the head. Take the time to see what you're drawing and try to get them as close to "exact" as possible.

    Keep at it man and I'll lurk to see if you're progressing.

    These anatomy are really giving me improvement I think. The last two pictures were done on large paper a couple of weeks ago. Sorry for the bad qaulity, but I hade to take a picture of them cause they wouldnt fit in my scanner. More on the way.

    If you like you could use the 'SEARCH' option and go to Ron Lemons head tutorial. That worked great for me.
