I used to love drawing in Photoshop! You've improved so much since the first pictures you posted. I love the wolf WIP at the bottom. Don't let those people on deviantart make you feel inferior. At your rate, you'll be drawing like the pros at a very young age! Just practice, practice, practice and you will get so good. I used to enjoy drawing little creatures called Neopets, but I was never very good. I just did it for personal fun. My first drawings were TERRIBLE, lol. But they got a little better over the years that I tried. I got a wacom bamboo tablet two Christmases ago but didn't really end up using it much. I did most of my art with my mouse.

I have never been an artist and I never took art classes, so drawing was always a challenge for me since I couldn't really envision how something was supposed to look on paper. But you know what I found really helpful? Looking at a picture of a real animal, studying the anatomy, and using that anatomy in my drawings. I never did get the shading stuff down. I just couldn't and still can't figure out how shadows are supposed to work, lol.

If you want to see some of my dorky Neopet pictures, let me know! Lol.

That's awesome, but what I meant was, you should definitely take some art classes to expand on that wonderful talent you have

Sure, I'd like to see them! I used to play neopets but just couldn't figure out so I quit about an hour after joining lol.

Wacom bamboo? EXPENSIVE. I barely scraped up the $80 to get mine (which came with photoshop), I couldn't even dream of a wacom bamboo.

Yeah, I love looking at the pictures of animals and drawing using the anatomy. Actually tbh, I can't draw humans that well lately lol so I've been drawing mainly animals.

I studied wolf anatomy for like a year just to get wolves right - which is why I am best at canines in general and can't draw kitties for my life. lol.

My daughter draws mostly cats, cats, cats! Maybe you two can trade tips, I am sure she would like wolf lessons She is your age and by herself alot too. She isnt on the computer a lot of hours but when she is she is mostly drawing or on Moshi Monster or drawing sites. What is that Horse site you mentioned?
