I'm 24 years old and have always loved to draw, but never really aimed to get good at it, so it has been more or less doodling to this point.
During last semester I studied art(education) as a minor at university and really got couraged to learn more.
Now I feel it's time to get a bit more serious about drawing and painting. That means studying anatomy and all that stuff that is vital to know to an artist.
That is why after a long time of lurking on these forums I finally decided to get myself an account here and start this sketchbook.
Hopefully this motivates me to draw and paint every day from now on.
btw, I went to the bookstore today and ordered Bridgman's Complete Guide To Drawing From Life. Can't wait to get it and learn me some anatomy finally.
For starters here's some things from the university studies and also some recent personal stuff.
The gorilla was done with charcoal lifting out technique. Really enjoyed working with charcoal, building tone is so much easier than with pencils. The second one is the second ever nude figure from life I did. It was good fun, really should do it more often. Then there's two digital master studies, one Bouguereau and the other Repin. Finally a quick lemon from life.
Any comments or critiques are highly appreciated.
