Quick sketch critique

Hey guys, first time poster. Heres a sketch I did a few years ago. Just wondering what you think about the style and how I can improve.

(Sorry for it not being scanned, the best I could do at the time was a digital camera.)

    Is this the most recent drawing you have done?

    I'm afraid so. I just found it in a folder on my PC and have since moved and lost most of my supplies. I guess I just stopped drawing after the move and was reminded of it when I found this.

    You haven't got any problems that aren't going to be fixed by practicing more. I'd suggest turning the page on that sketchbook, going out in the yard and finding another flower, and then drawing the hell out of it.

    Prettymuch what metal said.

    There is no point in critiquing this, both because it is ancient, and because you are too inexperienced for it to help at all.

    Make some new drawings by observing things from life. People, animals, places, whatever. Make a ton of them and then post those.

    Alright thanks guys 8-). I wasn't really sure where to go with it. I'll get back into the swing of things.

    The only thing I would suggest (though it's kinda hard to suggest anything on something that is a year old) is to be less bold in the linework on the more delicate areas of the flower, that'll help give it more depth.

    I agree. Try to get out of the habbit of bold outlines as soon as possible. Or you'll end up like me:lol:
