okay here we go
i've literally started drawing humans a couple of days ago- i've only been drawing dogs heh
so if you know any great books about the basics of drawing humans and their anatomy please tell me!
the end is just experimental doodles.
I love pokemon, it's what started me drawing in the first place
Hey, for 14 you are doing GREAT!! I wish I was this good when I was your age, I'd be a freaking genious by now! keep it up, draw every day, by the time you're ready to enter the art workforce, your competetors will be saying, "how did she get so freaking good?" I especially love your gesture studies!!
i think we all started out drawing Pokemon didn't we?
as for books on human anatomy i see you've already discovered loomis,who was a genius. you should also check out bridgeman if you haven't already and i know i'd be lost without my dynamic figure drawing by burne hogarth.
really excellent work though! i agree with saramel, i wish i could draw what you are at that age!
Thanks for the sketchbook comment!
You're definitley in a very good place to be in skill-wise! The more you draw, the faster you'll improve, so that's the only general tip I can give right now since you seem to be on the right track
Maybe you should do a full drawing from life or from a photo so we can see how good your shading/rendering skills etc are?
Keep it up!
Welcome to CA,Jess!
I'm sure you'll love this site,it helps all artists get on track,and be a pro!
I love your progress so far,the hands are the best,they look very good!Keep drawing 'em,hands are the most difficult things to draw besides faces IMO,so practice a lot!
The Loomis studies look great too,be sure to study that book a lot!
One general critay attention to your lines,no matter how good the drawing is proportionally,hairy lines can make it look amateurish.Try to break objects down to simple forms,draw the general shape with straight lines first,and then you can examine the object carefully and draw all the complex curves on the surface(at least that works for me!)!
You're on the right track,keep it up!

Thank you X13, i've never really drawn faces before so it'll be a good experience. C:
Thank you Sulphur, that's a good idea since i've been doing nothing but sketches these days. xD
hairy lines! that made me laugh out loud
you're right DSmith, i've noticed experienced people have more confident strokes. Thank you so much!
sorry for the lack of postingness, i'll try to post more everyday.
hah, who knew heads were even harder than hands.
I love the lion called friday and your cat sketches. You have cats, right? I agree with Dsmith that you could use more confident lines, especially with the cats since you nailed down the form so well. You know when you think that you have found the form you can use a bit heavier pencil or pen to emphasize the important lines. The watercolours are also good. Keep it up!
Fedde: aw, thank you >.<
Pixel cheetah: thank you, i'll definitely keep that in mind next time I do a pencil drawing. And yes I have a cat called Biscuit, she always chews on my pencil when I draw her so I have to wait until she's sleeping xD
well uh my cat brought back a dead lizard as a present AND WELL I just couldn't miss the opportunity
some of the figuressssss and handssssss
and a 1 hour speedpaint
Hi, there! Saw you'd swung by my sketchbook and thought I'd return the favor.
Really, really excellent start, here! Keep up this rate of progress, and you'll be up top with the big boys in no time flat! Nice kitties, too...
Yeeah there's absolutely NO WAY you're an 'amateur' at this like you say.
Not trying to sound rude of course, if anything it may be a compliment, but I genuinely do not believe for even a second that you're a little preteen beginner at drawing, there's just absolutely no way.
That being said, definitely some very nice stuff you have here.
Hi Jess. I'm a Jess too.
Fourteen? You're really good. I'd like to see some more people.
krysjez: yay! *highfives* thank you, I probably should be drawing more humans hehe.
Lacroix: lol thank you, well I have been drawing ever since I was a little kid, but compared to some artists who have been drawing for decades and decades I feel like such an amateur. xD
Brightdreamer: thank you!
2 weeks till the project is over~
Thanks for your note! Keep up the good work, you have a nice quality of line which stands out in some of the drawings, e.g. the human quick poses and the animal anatomy studies.
I like a lot how you did the outline of the watercolor birds too, the straight lines work well.
nice studies keep up
Hey there, just wanted to say thanks for stopping by my sketchbook!
I can see such improvement from your first drawings of people to your most recent. well done! I also love that last picture, very nice choice of colors.

Aeothesiel: ah gee really? that means allot, since I don't feel like I improved at all xD

... thank you! < 3
Wow.. drastic improvement in a very short period of time.
