so..I like to draw (:

I'm definitely not very good, but I like to do it. I've been kind of self taught, kind of trial and error (as in, draw, hate it, and move on hah). I've taken two semesters of art class, neither one focused on drawing. These are also right after a 6 month hiatus from drawing, so I was a little rusty. Oh, and I'm only 14

Okay, enough with my excuses. Here they are...*cringe*

(first drawing with the new pencils my artistically-gifted grandpa gave me)

(i was stuck home, sick)

I usually do them off of pictures, but I don't make an outline or anything. I just start on the left side and work my way to the right (so i don't smudge the drawing with my hand, lol). Sorry they're blurry, my camera wasn't cooperating. (:

What do you think?

Wow- those are amazing! I especially love the one you did with the new pencils your grandpa gave you. You are sooo good at their eyes- I always struggle with that.

I think they're really good considering you're self taught! That's how I learned to draw - and believe me, at first my stuff was baaaad. Now I actually don't mind showing it online lol!  907

They're good, you have skills coming your way :)

And it's the joy of doing it that's important :P

Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.

I especially like this one:

I like the way you arent' afraid to use strong darks and lights and don't put equal development in all parts of the drawing, but kind of have some areas more developed, so we can focus on them. This one has some feeling to it, of an older horse perhaps, in a relaxed state.

keep working, and keep being brave wih dark/light. you can always tone it down later, but be bold to start with!
