Well, I guess some time has passed since my last attempt to start a sketchbook. There have been reasons, though there is no excuse for me stopping to post updates and especially me stopping drawing. I started my new job at a hospital and have been working my ass off for the last few months.
But enough of the excuses and the complaining, time to make some kickass art and have my ass kicked. I am planning on living on my art someday, and it's time for me to start acting like that I guess. In the following months I will have to build up a portfolio, something I have a great respect and maybe also quite a bit of fear of doing. The biggest problem is that I haven't got the best idea how to start on that and what to include and how to put it together and most importantly what to actually draw/paint.
I wouldn't say I am a complete beginner, but there are a few basics I still have to get a firm grip on, like lighting and anatomy. I am going to start and just upload everything I do on the computer and on paper, something I was a little embarassed about before. Regarding the thread title: The Sketchbook is going to be two-faced in the meaning, that I do draw, paint both realistically and cartoon-style so expect both in here. I will start of with two studies I did today. I know I know... Apples. What a nice object to draw. I was just curious if it's that much fun to paint them, and I guess it is.
So CA I am eager to make a fresh start. Let's roll!
