drawing, and drawing WELL is a skill that takes thousands of hours of practice (not surprisingly). A good start would be to find some fundamental "learn to draw" type courses being given at local art schools, galleries, etc. Once you've got the basics covered a life drawing course is an absolute must. A big part of drawing, especially living things is having a thorough understanding of scale and anatomy.

I'm an art school dropout and i haven't picked up a pencil since i quit. It sucked every ounce of enjoyment out of it for me. I wish i had just kept it as a hobby :(


Great work though!

not a very good teacher, but i can tell you i have stacks of art books (never went to art school) and i've picked up at least a few things from each one. and I have practiced a lot of life drawing, especially portraits and figure studies. but i also try to draw from memory/imagination, too. i find that drawing from life then immediately drawing from memory helps me lock it in.

i do a lot of gesture and contour drawings too. i used to use guide lines and cylinders/stickmen a lot to start out a drawing, then i met a guy who just draws without much regard for construction lines (aka the natural way to draw). i've been doing it that way ever since.

some other old ones:
