If you get a chance, and that may not happen until college (unless you have an art teacher at your school you can talk to,) I'd take a drawing class to get introduced to drawing in general. I learned a little in High School, but there's only so much you can learn there. If you really want to get into drawing, take a class, because then the instructor will be right there to help guide you and show you how to work on proportion and anatomy. Don't stop drawing now, but if you really want to learn more specifics, the best way is through people who are trained on how to help others. Not to say we don't have good advice here, but it's easier I feel when you have one-on-one time with a professor, or just someone to sit you down and discuss where to start and how to improve.

Hope this is helpful, I'm not trying to rehash what everyone else has said. But fyi, there's a lot of good advice in those blocks of text :) I learned a little myself.

I read the text. Only about 4 or 5 were something useful, the rest were people fighting with one another. It happens again and I will have someone lock this topic. I'm tired of listening to people argue. My family is bad enough at arguing especially my mom and dad since they are getting a divorce. Now, does anyone want to help?

btw, to those who are actually trying to help, thank you, none of this was meant toward you. You guys should know who you are.

Out of curiosity, have you taken any art classes? You're...a freshman, right? Or are you in 8th grade? I think that's about the time I seriously started thinking of working on my own drawing.

I'm 15, and a freshman. I didn't have a seventh period or an english class, but the english classes for 7th period were full so they dropped my second period and put me in a 7th period I hated, Psychology. So no I have not had an art class yet. I want to take art next year.

That's an awesome idea, cause you can at least get acquainted with art and "how to start" and all that. You're in the right direction :) Just keep plugging away, and you'll get it. Practice really is key. All the greats we know about had to start by taking on a master and copying--I mean really copying exactly what others did. Michaelangelo, Leonardo, all of them. And then, they got to slowly come into their own (though, if you look at Michaelangelo's silly goose, he really just slaps two oranges onto a man's chest...really, check it out sometime ;P) Practicing, practicing, so you should keep on drawing, even without lessons. I mean, that's my suggestion on how to begin with it. I'm sure others have more they can add on.

I will actually give you a little bit of help, with giving you some exercises and help with your drawing if you want.

Understand I'm going to expect a certain standard out of you. When it comes to the work.

Oh, I understand. I expect certain things out of myself before I will post them here. The one you saw on the first page was the first one I drew. So its not as good as the newest one, but I am improving slowly.

btw I am getting a Bamboo Pen and Touch for christmas.
