lol, thats what I though too... but I can now say that over time reference made me much much much better.

I started drawing early, like most of you seem to have, but I was over 20 when I started really using reference. Not just looking at one picture, but many so that I really understood what the full person/animal/object looked like. It made more forward progress in my artwork in a year or two that the previous 15 year put together.

I'm not very good at drawing canines, but for everything else I'll usually use several references. That way I can get a good idea of the animal's anatomy, and it helps to draw it in many positions, whereas using only one ref only helps with one position.

I used so many references when I was younger,that I know how to draw everything I can think of :3
Although.....I had Anime Eyes shown to me by an 8th grader at school....They were really good! So,I took those,and in turn taught her how to make them better,lol.
People at school say I help them alot with drawing.....
I need one of those boards that connect to the computer,so I can draw to my full extent....UNLESS anyone knowshow I can post my pencil art on here?

I would like to know that too- I draw a lot, and I'd really like it to be able to show my pictures and have people tell me of ways I can improve.

To post your hand drawn art, you will need to scan it or take a digital pic of it. Then you will need to upload it to some kind of photo/image sharing site that allows you to hotlink the images.

Some of the other users may be able to recommend good sites for that ;)
