Just keep on drawing and drawing. Eventually, the quality gets better and better.

Who are you on there?
And yeah, I enjoy doing it.
I can be really good if I concentrate.
When I started, I can only draw stickmen and stickhouses.
Practice, practice, practice -- that's the key to improvement. Perhaps, learn some
basic techniques too. For example, sketching a framework with basic shapes first
to get the proportions right, then adding the major and minor details afterwards.
Also, try to include as much detail as you could.
Look at example below:
after adding details... (although still unfinished)
I seriously like drawing number 4 in your original post for some reason. Keep it up!

I've even had people proposition
me to draw them.
Might like a different choice of words there
Awesome pics. Great size. Look thick. Solid. Tight. Keep us all posted on your continued progress with any new progress pics or vid clips. Show us what you got man. Wanna see how freakin' huge, solid, thick and tight your drawings can get. Thanks for the motivation.

I'm hugely popular on the DS forums.
I'm quite a phenomena with my art over there, was shall I say, got banned.
I have drawn many from X Factor contestants, Big Brother Contestants, I'm A Celeb, Ant & Dec, Baywatch etc etc. ...you name it.
Here's just a few:
Bored Sunday afternoon, why not draw one of my budgies?
I have 6 in total: Davina, Harry, Club, Mitch, Stacey & Jordan.
You know this thread has inspired me into drawing again. Haven't done any art for ages.
First of all, it's always very difficult to submit your artwork to criticism and so I must begin by applauding you on that front. My advice would be for you to keep going with that. I have had a look through all of the pictures that you have posted on here and the budgie picture is definitely an improvement from some of your earlier work. I'd try to look more closely at the shape and the form of the subject that you are drawing. You need to consider while drawing the shape of your subject and try to stick more closely to that. I'd also look to try to focus more on the face of your subject and try to make them more realistic. Look also to try experimenting with shading more to create 3 dimensional effects.
This is definitely a great start, but don't be afraid to be more experimental with your work.
Great work and I look forward to seeing your artwork develop,
looks like a little tot drew them
Any more recent pictures? I've missed this thread :-)
OP save all your work! Keep it in a safe place! You could look at it in 5-10 years from now and see how much you've achieved =)
I didn't save mine which I regretted to this day =(
Might do some more soon. Not feeling it today. Having a down day.
I actually think they are great, and I'm not being sarcastic.
The way they are drawn, and the fact they are celebrities, just makes them really stand out for some reason. It's like the style implies youth and innocence, but the content is adult, giving a bizarre twist on how others may view our popular culture.
They have really grown on me- ignore the haters. I'll be the first one in line at your at your debut exhibition
EDIT: They also look like the missing pages of Napoleon Dynamite's scrap book (that's a good thing)
Omg OP, you make me smile. I like painting number 4. You know maybe you could go places with this.
I see you as a possible Amedeo Modigliani. If you practice enough.
Your use of black ink is applaudable. You clearly try to convey a thought provoking message. Which is, we are all living on the edge. The black lines are the margin between safety and danger, that's why they're so thin, at any moment we could just topple of the path, then what would happen-we don't know, but it's an exciting thought-truly it is. By making the drawing of celebrities you are clearly trying to encourage us to take risks like them, to become like our idols. To live the good life. The black line is boring, tepid, but wondering into the unknown is exciting.
Op, you have opened my eyes, I see great things for you.
Bright career when you pass away, look at van gogh a painting sold at apprx $49 mill!
I'm glad people like them.
I'm going to get working on a piece for my idol Justin Bieber.
I normally take probably 10 minutes on some of them, but I'm really going to focus.
It's impatient that is my downfall.
Once I've done it I'm going to tweet him it and hopefully he'll have the time out of his busy life to have a quick look.
A massive thanks to you guys though and others who support me because without that I'd be nowhere. Yes, I'd do still do it because I enjoy it, but it's people's happiness I bring through drawing that makes me continue. I will go for months without drawing, but then I'll get this real erge just to draw something.
Not sure when I will post it. Like I say, I'm not rushing. It's going to be special and I won't just send this off without it being right.
My pic of Justin Bieber. Finished it earlier than expected.
