Re: Ahoy!

not bad for a start. there are some outstanding tutorials and tips in that area of this site. i think some good paper and pencils. looks like u have the basic tools in your belt you just need to fine tune them. and practice.. i mean lots. the more you do the better your art becomes.
keep it up.
cheers

Re: Ahoy!

I think it looks great. Like someone already said, the way to improve is just to keep drawing, so if you love drawing then you will improve. Can't really give much advice since I dont see anything "wrong" with it. You could add some more detail or detailed shading to the face maybe?

Re: Ahoy!

yep, understand. HOwever, its not good to be too precious with your drawings especially when you are looking to improve. Ive noticed that it has become a very frustrating thing for me at least, when Im not really happy with my drawing but I dont dare touch it in the fear of making it worse. My advice is just go for it and learn. So what if its ruined, you will create more images and nothing is so unique that its a tragedy if it gets messed up. WHen you do manage to create something really unique I think you will know it.

Re: Ahoy!

I would say to work on your darks and lights. The proportions of the face look really good and It's good to know your not afraid to go dark (hair). Just keep drawing and don't be afraid to spend more time on a drawing to go for realism.
