Hey guys, just mad an account and i hope to be a help as much as I can and be on here a good bit so I want to say some about myself. My name is Alex Iím from a small city in North Carolina. I almost always only do a graphite picture. I am 14 going into my soft-more year in high school (10th grade) I figured out I could draw about a year ago and have gone from there. I am not near as good as the people I have seen so far but I hope to get better and learn some by being here.

thanks, u have some nice work yourself and would you mind if i drew your "crows" drawing for some practice?

Alex, go for it. I'm sure the crows won't mind.

That picture came from a photo my wife took by placing the camera lens against a telescope in the early evening just after a rain. Those crows were about 1/2 mile away (straight as a crow fly's, ha, ha). The actual photo really didn't come out too well, kinda blurry, but something about it caught my eye.

Anyway thanks for the compliment.

no problem, thanks for letting me draw it, if it comes out good enough i might just post it up so u can check it out, and that was a good idea with the camera and the telescope.
