I am 15 years old and just getting into the whole art and drawing scheme, and I was told by a friend that this site would help me on my way so i figured I'd give it a shot. I saw this forum and figured I could start a sketchbook to get crits on my artwork as well as log my own progress and such...
I currently don't have a high resolution camera to take pictures of my drawings so I have to use a crappy scanner, so forgive the bad quality.
These are some old sketches that I drew and had scanned in a while ago just to get this sketchbook started, I'll be scanning some more recent ones in later.
A gryphon, drawn entirely from a reference picture I found somewhere on the internet, so I take no credit at all for this, it was just practice:
A woman that I drew fairly quickly:
Snow Leopard from a 15 minute drawing contest with a friend, both drawing from the same reference picture:

Here's a good sized update, I've scanned in pretty much everything from my sketchbook.
Keep in mind I usually start with a lot of inspiration and halfway through lose it and either rush it or give up. I also have a very bad habit of getting caught up with details, which I am currently working on, and I don't sharpen my pencil very often because I get caught up in whatever I'm doing which is another habit that I am trying to fix.
Two dragons in the shape of a heart, drawn from reference, no credit to me:
Two "vikings" fighting in the snow... I know the anatomy and perspective are pretty much f***ed on this one, but I was it was a very quick and messy sketch and i was in a bad mood so i didn't take any time to lay it out:
A set of lips and an eye, drawn merely for practice... no reference:
A cheetah that was very nice when I first drew it, but it got ruined because it was on the first page of the sketchbook... never doing that again:
A peregrine falcon drawn without reference:
A Gondola of Venice... pretty crap in general, got caught up in details, didn't plan anything out so perspective and lines are screwed, but there you go... lost inspiration halfway through and stopped, never bothered to try and finish:
A tiger... It's OK I guess, but I can critic it until the sun comes up:
A naked angel, no real nudity, but no clothes... Drawn without reference:
A very light outline of a tiger, never bothered to finish it:
A quick otter I drew for a friend:
Chicks! Drawn without reference:
A blue-jay i started but never quite finished:
An eagle I drew a while ago, spent very little time on it actually, and even less on the background as you can probably tell:
That's all for now, hopefully I will have some new content in my sketchbook to post by later tonight or sometime tomorrow.
Criticism welcome and appreciated, just please don't repeat what I've already said about myself .
Here are a few that I drew earlier today
