so, very briefly: always been drawing as a kid, stopped altogether as a teenager, only started drawing and painting again this year after about 10 year's of abstinence. but I really want to improve, so I got myself my very first sketchbook :D be kind ;)

no need to be kind - looking good :)

my bit of advice would be to draw from life a LOT and keep showing us :)

Good work! It looks like you're having some fun. Next step: go outdoors and sketch! Be bold, be brave.

Nice sketches...glad you are getting back into it. Like others have said, try getting out and sketching something every day from life. Your skills will come back quickly that way...and don't forget to keep sharing them with us.
