Beginner Artist, new to the forum!

Hi everybody!

I am a beginner artist. It's really just a hobby for me, and I have to admit I'm not very good, but it's still enjoyable. Below are some of my sketches.

I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you better!


Picture 1: A work in progress of my mare, Blue. Any tips/critique would be greatly appreciated!
Picture 2: A result of boredom, featuring a Royal Flush
Picture 3: Colt Navy revolver

Most important thing is the enjoyment you get from drawing and/or painting, and hobby or not your destined to get better at it with each new drawing or painting.

You are very welcome!

You ask for critique and tips and to be truthful about it I am just beginning myself, being only a few months into it, so I'm in a learning curve just like you. However I might have a great tip for you which is called 'Youtube', I'm sure almost everyone is allready familair with that video website one way or another. On Youtube there are countless free tutorial video's showing you, step by step, what is neccesary to get on the right track and if you pay real close attention you will be able to improve your drawings instantly.

Everything you might want to draw is available after just a few clicks, in the searchbox type for instance 'drawing tutorial' and a wealth of video material will show itself to you, infact thus much of it you will have a hard time picking which one You can filter it out quite a bit, for instance by doing a Youtube search using the words 'drawing a horse head tutorial', or any other drawing wish/preference you might have for that matter.

I just used that very same phrase when looking a tutorial up for you which will help you with the drawing of your mare, it can be your drawing tutorial starting point on Youtube:

Good luck
