Hey all. I'm 41 years old and always wanted to be able to draw, but never thought I could. I picked up You Can Draw in 30 Days by Mark Kistler. Yes, I'm sure some of you don't like this book or his style, I can't say I'm a big fan of his style either. However, I'm about half way through the book and it has really helped my confidence so far. Yeah, I'm still making mistakes, but I'm learning from them. Once I've finished up this book I'd like to go on to more advanced things and eventually get into colored pencil drawing, as that is what I really want to create. All feedback is welcome, including not to quit my day job. :lol:

Really would like to hear suggestions on where I should go after this book. Anyway, here's what I've done so far.

KoshOne, Hi, do whatever works for you, although I will say you don't seem to be developing your skills, maybe you need to look at a different perspective and attitude. Try pushing yourself into something more challenging.
