Ravmaster,

Welcome! It's fine to be a beginner.

I highly recommend getting this book and trying the exercises contained within it. I think I was about your age or a bit younger when a relative gave me a copy - it really opened my eyes:

The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain
http://about.pricegrabber.com/searc...sbn=0874774195/

There is also this Workshop based around the Workshop, and you are welcome to post your exercises to both the Workshop and your personal Sketchbook threads:

BEGINNERS' Drawing Workshop - Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=269026

I really think that you'd enjoy and get a lot out of these exercises. Definitely a worthwhile purchase!

Cheers,

-Rebeccak

Hi & welcome Ravmaster!

Those are some cool cartoon experiments! And I really like the eye you did on the "fire star" drawing. Would be cool to see a complete picture of this guy

I luuuv dragonz

If you're into drawing these lovely creatures...
a book that has got me started well on drawing dragons is

DragonArt: How to Draw Fantastic Dragons and Fantasy Creatures (Paperback)

by Jessica "Neon Dragon" Peffer

It's not going deeply into the anatomical features of a dragon, but it sure helps to get going

Hi Ravmaster,

when I was 13 I couldn't draw a straight line, let alone a hand, cartoony or not...

So, in my opinion you could go very far.

I suggest trying to study the real thing thoroughly, though, before going for stylization only.

No need to stop drawing cartoony hands or dragons or anything, don't get me wrong on this. I just think that a lot of wonderful things will happen to your drawings when you try to copy nature as close as possible.

Really looking forward to your development in this thread. Just keep posting...

A pic of Sora from kingdom hearts

The hand 'tutorial'

1. Daw a wonky box or parralelogram (sp?) and lines falling from it at an angle
2. Draw a point above your box, and draw lines from that point, then add 1/2 of smaller parallelograms.
3. Draw the rest of the parallelogram and the lines
4. Curve all the boxes to make them look less 'hard'
5. Another angle thing here draw the back of the palm (nothing special here)
6. Add on nails and the such (wrinkles etc.)

btw i couldnt find a good way to draw a thumb
