Hello from sketcher! Some tips to help your art.
It looks like you're overly concerned about the surface detail. Learn how to build your drawing with basic shapes, and concentrate on your form.
http://www.itchstudios.com/psg/art_tut.htm <- good tutorial you should read.
Also, don't use filters. It's a very cheap way to add texture to an image, and other people can tell when you use filters.

Yo dude, sorry I couldn't do that battle with you earlier, parents being all...parental.
Anyways, it seems like you're getting better at a fast rate, which is good. You know, that sci-fi city scape/waterfall idea was in my head a while ago. AND, I used that quote about love in an English essay project this year. weird. But anyway, I think we both need some anatomy help. XD
Your best so far, I think, is that world pic. It's waay better than the cat thing, up in the first post.
You know, we can start our own mini sketch group, just the two of us, or we can get some other people in too, like some of the other sketcher people, so at least we all have something in common.
Oh Yeah, and DRAW MOAR.
That is all.My Sketchbook: Critics and Comments welcome.

I was sitting here the other day, and since we may have or may not have (not sure entirely lol!) our own sketchgroup, I was thinking maybe we should meet in sketcher or have assignments or something that can be done? Maybe nothing too difficult... or maybe this might just be a silly idea all together. I dunno, work/school/other things might be in the way too much for others and I'm just a slackass sitting in college waiting for something fun to do lol. I have a tendancy to get bored when I don't have any sort of assignment to do lol. I guess just get back to me if you guys have any ideas. We could maybe post something to do in any sketchbook (to keep us looking at each others lol) like every Friday or something? That was due before Thursday. Kind of like our own private Daily Sketches/Weekly sketches... I don't know, I suppose someone could get back to me lol.
As far as that link, I suppose I'm going to try to do every exercise there lol My goal is to do about 1 maybe 2 things a day and something really big a week. This might be a bit though because I think I need to follow an old adage: "Quality over Quantity." At least for now.
Like I said, someone get back to me lol.

I think that, for now, you should practice the basics of drawing.
Draw some simple shapes like spheres and cubes, throw them in perspective, change their materials (wood spheres, chrome spheres, etc.), and create small scenes with multiple objects in them.
Follow simple themes when drawing like form, line, value, pattern, unity, emphasis, balance, proportion, rhythm, harmony, movement. I would say color, but that's something you can learn later, after you have more basic elements understood.
Draw from life, observe more than anything when you do it. Drawing from life is 75% observing, and 25% drawing (advice I can't repeat enough). Draw people, buildings, objects, anything, just sit down and really, really look at it and learn to draw it. That's how I started (back in my Freshman year in college, and the subsequent years to follow) and I'm sure that's how most people here got their starts. You have to start small and work on the basics before you can get to the larger things like illustrations and concept art.
And, pull out those anatomy books and study them. I've recommend these to everyone who wants to learn how to draw. They are the best, in my opinion.
-Artistic Anatomy by Richer and Hale
-Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist by Peck
-Anatomy for the Artist by Simblet
-Anatomy Lessons from the Great Masters
I have them at arm's length, even now, so I can quickly look up anatomy if I'm confused.
Once you've studied anatomy enough and draw from observation enough, you can start accurately pulling things out of your head to draw them.
Lastly, but not leastly, draw everyday. No matter what. DRAW. EVERY. DAY. I draw everyday no matter what happens. It's one of the few rules in my life I follow strictly. No matter how tired I am, sick I am, or whatever events may have happened, I draw. Even if it's badly done or something you've drawn before, just do it. It's important to keep the hands reminded of how to work.
So, my four cornerstones of creating artwork are:
-Follow the basic principles of art and design.
-Observe, then draw. (75% observation, 25% drawing.)
-Dedication and practice.
Does that work for a lesson?
I've added you to my sig, since you added me.

Starting to Practice some studies.
And when I mean practice some studies, I mean it! I've already drawn 4 pages worth of magazine ad poses. It's crazy lol! They will help me get past this hump that I'm at right now learning positioning. I don't have them scanned at the moment to post, but will have to post them later tonight.
As far as current works, I've done a picture of Bruce Lee that shows off a little bit of shading and skeleton work I've been learning about. This guy started off as just a stick figure and a pose line lol. It turned out pretty well.
I've also done a picture of an invasion of Earth to start better learning how to set-up a scene and perspective. Hopefully that will start to improve as I'd like to become an environmental artist one day. Maybe I'll have to get with Seedling and have them help me get my foot towards that end.
Finally, one for fun that was really really quick: Motorcycle jousting. The them for sketcher was a knight in the current day, so that was the only thing I could think of lol.
Anyway, I've started back up an old habit, Everquest 2, which I would like NOT to invade everything else I do, just be something I can do to relax and get away from everything lol. I find it fun and inspiring, as I love the fantasy universe. Now if only they'd get onto doing Shadowrun Online, which reminds me, if anyone is familiar with the Shadowrun Universe, here's a fun tidbit: http://www.sixthworldgames.com/ which used to be in production of a Shadowrun Online, has recently been stolen from under the carpet by Microsoft and that they are now working on a cool new CyberPunk game. Hopefully they will pull through with what they were trying to acheive!

E) Learn to accurately paint/sketch on the computer so that I can become a digital artist as well as traditional (Like so many of you amazing artists on concept art).
and E) Have fun doing it!
Anyway, enjoy and thanks for the inspiration all you readers
