Ah, advanced placement art? I took it. It was hectic, but worth it in the end.

If you already drew out what you had to then I would just draw whatever you want. And with tips, all I can say is if you don't know how to exactly draw it, take a picture of yourself playing guitar and use that for reference for anatomy and posture.

It takes time...


Just keep practicing.

I don't really recommend copying other styles...


Just do it as excercises.

well drawing is making any marks on a surface so you could try experiment with things other than pencil- eg ketchup or ink on a fork

The site is a bit ew, but the tutorials on here cover the basics quite nicely: http://www.polykarbon.com/tutorials/index.htm

If there's anything specific you'd like to know feel free to PM me or comment me or something, I'm an artist by trade, in between having a proper job to pay for stuff, lol.

Draw yourself in manga form playing guitar.

I separated it into two steps so it wouldn't look like it meant to press it against the paper in one spot and then pick up and move it around in the air.

I'm sorry, I'm not going to help you by doing that, I should have elaborated more.

It's a good idea to draw a rough stick figure so you can get the proportions right.

The best advice I can offer is to spend more time looking and observing and considering how things will work. A good supply of influences help too IMO. It surprised me how much better my work came out when I did this back when I was in Graphic Design.
