I'm Miles Johnston. This sketchbook shows my progress from early 2007, at age 14, to whatever date it is now. I plan on keeping this going for as long as possible really. Skip to the last page please. The first page is bloody old.
All unreferenced except the street fighter and the anatomy ones.
anway here are a few recent sketches i thought worthy of uploading. may be oversized.
The first one is just some pretty generic soldier thing.
The most recent one is the guy with the mechanical arm which I drew tonight (he is also easily the best one I rekon).
The fighter guy was the start of a project I never finished in which I wanted to make a set of designs for an imaginary fighting game, but I never did more than one. Its also drawn really lightly.(and its got a bloodstain on it)
The spartan has some anatomy issues with his legs an hips.
Also there are a couple of anatomy studies I did a while back. The forearm ones arm awful, way too short and blurry, but still i need page filler.

Really good start for your age. I would say you need to work some on perspecive aswell as anatomy. Try to do some studies like that every day and you'll improve really fast. Don't let all that potential go to waste Keep it up!
Thank you very much RandAlThor. In fifteen years time I'd love to be a concept artist in my spare time. Would be a dream job.
Zombie: I really should do studies everyday but its kinda hard to keep yourself motivated to doing them when you find them boring, well sort of. I'll try anyway to study more, my laptop basically now gives me a portable source of unlimited references so studies should be no problem.
More progress on the drawing. I'm just blocking in colour for a lot of the picture and moved the head up. Progress is kinda slow cos I'm still getting to grips with the program.
im very very surprised from where you live first of all, get to that soon. its great to see you start a sketchbook at 14. I started my sketchbook at 14, or maybe 15, i cant remember, but trust me its worth it, if you put the work in. Good start, keep on going with the studies and imaginational drawings. Try some still lifes, like a pair of apples or bananas and keep on doing them ( not just apples or bananas, anything, i mean anything), thats what i did anyway, and it helped me alot. I cant really believe you live in fleet, when i first saw i was . I live quite near Basingstoke, in a village called odiham, heard of it? As i have never seen someone on here as close as that!
