General tips to get better if you're starting out....keep drawing...a lot.  :)   Go to life drawing workshops/classes, carry a sketchbook with you everywhere and draw everything around you (people, buildings, landscapes, etc.)  I believe drawing from real life observation will help anyone's art skills quicker because it will also teach you how to "see" which will then make your drawings more accurate.  But yeah, just keep drawing and have fun with it.


Hope that helps a little.

I draw on tracing paper. If I like one part I can trace it onto another piece and change the part I don't like.

Bur like DJammies said draw draw draw and take a class.

That sketch you did, would have been awesome! With charcoal..
Charcoal is fun, but allows you to do shading which can change a sketch completely...Invest in some charcoal, and charcoal pencils...But yeah, draw draw draw!
