Tinyliny commented on a few of my sketches and it made me realize that I want to keep drawing and would love any and all critique. Here are my most recent sketches, some are unfinished because I lost my motivation or was just focusing on one point. Right now i'm just using a mechanical pencil and a sketch pad. (I want to improve my basic outlining before I buy anything expensive...). I feel like i've been stuck for a while now and haven't been improving much.

    Sorry some pictures are so dark, I have such a hard time trying to get my camera to take decent pictures of drawings, and the scanner has been out of order for a while.
    I totally LOVE tha cat drawing!! :O
    I'm very bad at drawing cats, how do you do it? Wow!

    Thank you! The truth is that I have no idea how that happened. Normally my cats look like deformed blobs. I just went fast and tried not to think too much about it while looking at a reference, the harder I try the worst it gets. Just being free with it seemed to work the best!

    Oh my god! That happens with me, too! The more I relax, the better it gets!

    Yup, I think that's really how it goes, the more you feel pressured you tend to overdo things too much and get easily frustrated. I find if I'm just having fun I do very well. =)

    On another note I'm very excited as a treat for finishing finals and doing well I got myself new sketching pencils, rubber eraser, some charcoal pencils and new sketch books. I'm a happy camper.

    I don't know the brands of pencils. I just go to Daniels Art store and try them out. Maybe try getting some gray paper (Mi tients) and get some graphite or charcoal, and get some red and white and black conte crayons.

    I ended up just buying a kit of different pencils and a set of charcoal pencils (dark, light and white) so the experimenting begins! I've already started on the pencils and I forgot how much nicer it is to use the different levels of hardness and softness. I should be posting up the results soonish, I have a lot of time on my hands over the next few days.

    First time using charcoal, have to say I really do like it! I have always found plants hard (then again everything other than horses are hard...) but thought it came out alright.

    Recent with the new pencils. This was done of my father's old police horse, Jessie.
