They are good enough for as far as they go. If you're interested realism, you'll have to learn how to draw without liines. You're not close yet.

I use the paper stumps to soften edges and they are great for shading, keep drawing as much as you can, it takes time and as with any skill, practice.

Very nice! I do agree that in order to achieve realism you will want to work on not having outlines.

I think maybe you could work on your shading a little bit to make it smoother. For instance - in your NBA drawing 3 picture I noticed that you don't blend out well. I also think you could use a little bit more value changes (particularly in the facial region) to give your drawings a more 3-D effect.

Overall you do nice work. You do have a lot of talent and an eye for placement. I hope you stick around and continue to show us your work.

Hello Jsb1120

I'm a watercolor painter and only do quick sketches to get started so I can't comment on fine drawing technique but I do like the proportion and energy in your compositions. Well done!

All The Best

Thanks for all of the comments, and suggestions. I have never had any guidance, or tips on drawing, so this forum is really helping a lot. I am going to start practicing the different techniques, and post more pics as they come. Thanks everyone!!
