Default just a hobby - drawings

So I'm slightly hesitant to post my drawing here after seeing how great everyone else is! haha! But I figured I can always use constructive criticism! That being said, I am improving tremendously (I think) and hopefully will continue to improve in my little hobby.

constructive criticism is appreciated! Thanks!

Thumbs up

Your off to a wonderful start! And you should never hesitate i personally enjoy seeing a person's progress even more then i do the individual pieces. Mostly it comes down to practice. YOUR first and third pieces are are your strongest. EAch piece will build on the skills you developed on the one before. I will know i am getting ready for a jump in my skill level when everything suddenly starts to seem wrong to me. I get very excited when i see that happening. GOod luck and please post more!

They're excellent..... a lot of feeling and expression. I haven't been able to master that, yet.

Aww, thanks everyone (though to be honest, I have to say that I did pick and choose which ones to post... so these are the few that I'm more proud of )

But thanks! My goal is to eventually be able to really make my drawings look 3D. Right now, I think that they aren't quite flat (I'm beginning to get the depth perception down, but as someone said, I have to work on the foreshortening) but they don't really look 'real' just yet!

I figure if I keep it up, maybe they will someday!
