Excellent! Good luck with your endeavor! =D
My sketchbook! Looking for mad critiques, yo. =P
Yesterday I went to a Svenskarnas dag gathering, so I drew people around me and what my mom said I should draw (she wanted me to draw trolls). Also I did some blind drawings of my hands, and some non-blind drawings of my hand.
So here goes the pictures;
Legs (muscle study/skeletal)
Arms (muscle study/skeletal)
Things around the house, in random order;
A frog phone, a candle, next to some magazines and my dads i-pad
A sheep plush, and a phone charger plug in.
I'll try to draw things around the house everyday, along with my 'at least one drawing a day'.
I'm still doing the drawings everyday, I just haven't scanned any xd
It's really wonderful that you're starting out so young! It's okay if you don't upload every day- but be sure to draw every day and you'll be improving in no time
I have faith in you buddy, keep going!
I slacked off, but I've managed to get 1 drawing a day at least except for a couple days..
I will get back on track
But I lost one of my sketch books that had most of my real life drawings in them, so I'll upload some recent ones, but there still aren't much...
^not done/it's based of the the sea goblin fish^
And a super rough digital drawing
Also, a rough monochrome ringo
NEW DATE: 8/17/2011 | 14 years old
Art class&first time using oil pastels
first flower drawing;
my spore creature, hermit;
Haven't been here in a while but I still draw everyday.
I really want to be an artist, have some kind of art job when I get older
sorry some of my stuff is transparent, you may just have to open the direct url
[14 y/o 1.22.12]
Something I'm working on
Still drawing everyday, at school mostly.
No more art class at school, not allowed to take it both semesters but in two years I can get in to IB art.
/Reading looking through other 14 y/o's journals and seeing people say 'good for their age?' I thought age didn't matter.../
I'm recording the process for this, here's where I'm at right now:

Age shouldn't matter, I think people just are impressed with the progress and quality of work from someone younger than themselves. I think your work is really impressive, the improvement since the beginning is really great! If you carry on drawing everyday and improving at this rate you'll be a professional by the time you're my age (which is 19) I just wish I'd had your dedication and skill when I was your age, keep going, you're going places (:
Your very creative with the stuff you do! your small creature monkey-ish looking thing is awesome
Cool paintings. Keep up the good work. BTW, don't ignore the ears when painting the face. They can be super important in suggesting head tilt.
Looks like you're on the right track. Keep it up!
Here are studies I did on real paper
More stuff, I didn't include a lot of pages, because they got blurry (I double side my sketchbook) .
I found a ref for this so I thought it would be fun haha:
First /almost/ serious thing from my imagination in a while, drawing from real life has helped!
Oldest, and a blanket study:
The skull drawing from your imagination was really cool!
I suggest more intense shading contrast? Ebony really helps with that! And for your digital art, I'm no expert, but I read this tutorial on uniformed color palettes and I think it helped a bit. It makes the colors seen not as "default", if you get what I'm saying. Ah, and I used to have really straight lines like you do (no messy sketchiness). I don't know if it's preference, but I find using many messy lines easier for sketching.
Oh hey! I'm around your age!
My lines are straight because I like to block in the subject rather than scribble everything, I don't know if it's better though
That's cool, I need art friends around my age, I only have one. :p
I've been working on doing black and white photo studies, I messed up on the first one.
The first one is done with a "chalk" brush, and the second is done with a circle brush, I wanted to see the differences.
My goal is to create a portfolio to get into a very nice art college in sweden, Atelier stockholm (and get a good scholarship!). A lot of my favorite artists have or are studying there, och jag kan prata på svenska till du, om du vill
Actually I'm just learning ;P
So my tablet has decided to go all wonky on me, which means not that much digital art anymore.
I'm kind of glad, because I hear traditional media helps a beginner like me way faster.
Also I'm doing a ton of drawing this summer, so far the only thing I've done today is draw (first day of break)
A lot of gesture/5 minute poses coming!
Alright, stuff I did yesterday!
(sorry, phone pictures; too lazy to run around the house scanning them)
I was practicing using my shoulder to draw shoulders, and decided to form a head ;p
This one is from longer ago, a baby angel sculpture in our house
Pretty sweet stuff man! Let's see how much we can improve this summer. One thing I could see though is maybe improve the quality of your lines, it would really improve your work I think. You got some real nice studies going on in there.
