  • For a 13 year old, it is generally decent. It is average if you drew it off a reference picture, but good if you did it off the top of your head. So basically, I wouldn't call it a "wow" but I would a "better than average!" If you keep working at it, you'll definitely get better. People often think that drawing is pure talent, but a lot of it is just practice and slowly getting better.

    To make it to a higher level where I would consider it a "wow," I would suggest working on two things...
    -- Details. It looks like you got your basic human shapes down. Things that could really make your drawing pop are things like some hair strands, some clothes creases, some more definition (darker lines) where the details you have drawn are.
    -- Shading. What makes a drawing great is generally shading. Otherwise, it all becomes very one noted. Like as of right now, the picture is very gray and 2d. If you shade stuff in though, it will really give it definition.

    Tips for drawing. I'm just adding this as an extra blurb because I feel like it lol. Feel free to skip it if you'd like:
    -- Add a decent amount of variance in your darks and lights. It's really easy to start shading, and before you know it, everything is just shaded the same color of gray. I don't want to say overdo it... but exaggerate it a little. Make the darks actually dark and the lights actually light. Don't settle for grayness.
    -- Blend, but be careful of turning everything one noted. It is really easy to start blending (using your thumb) and turn everything into one gray mess. I suggest filling in a small space lightly, blending that, adding a darker coat on top, blending that, and adding in more dark coats as needing/blending those.
    -- Step back from your drawing every once in awhile. Like I'm talking about 10 feet or so. Things look a lot different when you are zoomed up on em all the time. It's good to take a step back, check the shading, check the proportions, and figure things out. I know it helped me a ton in art.

    Well, that's all I got. If you need any help with any art stuff or whatnot, lemme know.

  • It's okay I guess, but not as impressive as how my 13yo cousin can draw. Then again she goes to an art school.
