Thank you all so much! I'll see if I can upload a drawing of my parents soon after they got married.

Tinyliny~ I'm 15 and I've never had any instruction, I just do it for fun-- kind of a way for me to relax!

Jaydee~ I do want to get some good pencils, and do you know of a good brand of drawing paper?

I draw from photos. As you can see in the people pictures the hairstyles or old-fashioned. That's because they are my relatives a long time ago, when they were young. The last drawing was especially hard because the photo I copied from is OLD. They are my great grandparents that I never met.

Thanks again y'all!

Here is the one of my parents. I actually did this one with good pencils, that I just found again after all this time! And the horse one I have just now finished.

My son is an art student though he's now focusing on animation as a career. He uses Strathmore 500 series for his better pieces and the 300 series for general sketching as its cheaper. I have tried them both and they work well - we prefer a smooth surface for portraits and a more textured one for landscapes.
Working from photographs is better than 'drawing out of your head' - unless you're doing fantasy stuff of course!! Do try to work from 'real life' when you can though
Experiment with colour too - pastels, even crayons as well as watercolour and acrylics. Oil paints are expensive and have you ever looked at some of the amazing work done with egg tempera?

Thanks a lot jaydee! I'll have to go buy me some paper now...

I am going to have to try to do some real life objects soon. I have only done a few of those and they were quite a long time ago.

I have such a hard time with color! Maybe I'll try it sometime again though. And I have never heard of egg tempera, I will definitely look that up. Water colors-- I did take a class and didn't enjoy it at all. Just didn't look real enough to me. Too cartoony, kinda.

Thank you, Sarahwind and silent storm!

Here is another one I have just finished! I drew it for a person on HF.

I'm about halfway through here.

Hehe...Well, I just realized something kind of embarrassing...I spelled Crescent wrong. I spelled it like Cresent instead of Crescent! I will have to definitely fix it tomorrow. OOPS!
