I joined about an hour ago. Em.. I'm a miserable "artist".
So I gues I'm here to learn something from others.
I'm new as of last night.
I've always dabbled in drawing, but up until I reached my 20s I drew anime almost exclusively. My fundamentals suffered. I was too stubborn to listen to my instructors. Now I'm doing studies every day as I prepare to go to Watt's atelier in California this coming fall. My hope is that I can be successful as an artist, whether I'm doing illustration or concept work or freelancing.
I'm open to criticism of course, but I'm not gonna lie. I prefer crits that are deeper than "Check your anatomy" or "draw from life more." If you see a problem with my anatomy (right now I'm specifically studying the shoulder girdle), then help me out with that particular item. If my rendering is off or my tone is too faded or weak then tell me about it.
Well, hello everyone!
Guess its long overdue but time to get serious about drawing everyday and such heh, tried not to make it a "new years" thing but seemed to turn out that way anyhow, been on outside lookin in for far to long and no time better than now to start posting on such a great community
Been too intimidated to join CA for a long time. Figured I wasn't any good.
But lately I've been in an artistic rut, so I decided to join in my journey to better myself and my art. Hopefully being part of this community will give me the kick in the ass I need to work harder.
I must say, you all look absolutely delicious today.
Hey guys(and girls). Im 16 years old and a visual art major args which is basically a school where instead of focusing on academics each student has a different major and my maj. is Vis. Arts. My graphic design teacher showed me this sight about six weeks ago and I finally decided to join. When you first log on to this site its very overwhelming because of all the amazing work. I will try to become one of the people that when people look at my stuff they are just like "... Damn." This is what most of the people on here try to do if im not mistaken.
Fear not the man who practices 1,000 types of kicks 1 time, but the man who practices 1 type of kick 1,000 times.

Name is Mike and just like to say hi to everyone. I've been drawing since I can remember and am going to school now to be an illustrator. I hope to be a concept artist one day. What about you?
Hello there! Name's Mihaela, but you can just call me Luna. I'm soon to be 15 years old. I have been drawing since I was a little kid, but 2 years ago I started drawing some srs business.
Soyea, I guess I'll stick around here for some time! Cheers!
Hey I'm soccerninja
I suck at art so men
I'm new here! Feel free to tell me anything I need to know about this site ^__^
Nice to meet everybody!
Hello, to everyone here.
I was linked here, of all means, through a obscure message boards, to of all sites, enysc dramatica.
I draw digitally, as a hobby- though I suppose I'm not particularly good at it. But still, would like to improve if able.
Hi, i'm Bel, from Russia. I joined today and a I'm little bit scared =)
I joined because I want to improve my drawing.
So I've made the plunge, moving away from animation and 3d game enviroment art and into concept. Well, when I say plunge I mean I've just started drawing again.. So hi and thanks for having me. Expect to see both terrible and beautiful sketches soon,
Hi everyone! Music is my art but im here to check out what people can do in terms of visual art...looking forward to share a mutual love for beauty!
Hello, new to this site usually hang around IFX site but heard a lot of great things about this site looking forward to it.
Hello My name is Ben
Writing is my Art, I am Currently Writing a Book as personal project/Lifetime Goal.
But Second only to writing is Drawings,paintings and Sketches these help me as an writer think of blasted wastelands to a peaceful oasis untouched by man.
Hi, im San. I following and reading this site now since a long time and finaly found the "register button" here .
So, i'm an "artist" - ok i try to be an artist, i love drawing and found a lot inspiration here, also this site helped me a lot to improve my skills. I singed up here to show my work and hopefully get some critique to improve more and get better, i'm a bit scared about doing this, but im looking forward to get some help and tips.
And yes, i'm from Germany, so please look over my mistakes, misspellings and basic english, i rarely speak or write in english.
Hi, I'm Alexandr, 26 years old. I'm from Russia, Murmansk but I am sure this forum is the best for professional CG artists and amateurs. I believe I will improve my skills here.
Hello, glad to be here!
Hi everyone! Greetings! Im new here and I am new to drawing (I have been drawing for about a year now..actually two). I hope I am still welcomed here.
I finally joined this place after my animation professor suggested it last semester..I've heard of the site more than a few times before, but always shied away from registering and posting stuff simply because the sheer awesomeness of other members made me discouraged at my meager sketches. But I finally decided to take the plunge.
I'm a Junior at Bradley University with a major in Interactive Media. What I'd honestly like to do is branch out into both CG and Conceptual Art - several of the classes I'm taking right now do both at the same time. I hope to learn from you guys here and improve on my art, and possibly make some friendships within the professional community. I lean towards working on videogames, specifically MMOs because I've had the most fun with the nuances of those. I have a few online portfolios, but they're in severe need of being updated. About the only thing that remains continual is my devART page that I've updated sporadically since my sophomore year of High School.
I hope to have a sketchbook thread open soon! Thanks for takin the time to read this.
Hello magical mystical wonderful world of CA.org!
Hewwo everyone! So I'm not technically new, but I only have like one thread on here from 07 >.> I almost forgot about this place, so I think I can still be placed in the newbie boat xD It's nice to be back though^^ Now let's see if I'm as half as shy as I was when first got here a few years ago xD Wonder if I improved any either xD
I'm a Norwegian girl looking for inspiration, since my imagination seems to be dead by the moment. Never experienced this issue before and it really worries me. When what you used to love the most is not fun anymore, what is?
I'm joining too improve my skills and to find the joy in making art again
I'm a 19-year-old prospective art student looking for feedback and tips to better my skills. It was suggested to me by a friend that I post my current WIP and first attempt at a photoshop paint up here for some real critique.
I must admit, I'm rather intimidated.
Hello there, I joined four years ago, then suddenly realized I was not even nearly as good as a jellyfish when it came to painting or drawing, and vanished into the arcanes of real life. There, I graduated in corporate communication, and started to grow a proper culture, like, reading books (without pictures) and stuff.
I hate to repeat myself but I guess 4 years is quite a long e-time and old members probably e-died without talking about me to their e-children. Plus, I posted 5 times in total, and probably only lame photoshop doodles, presented with amusing child-like english grammar little constructions, so I might be somehow completely forgotten.
pins, not Pins anymore, and certainly not P!nS, 20 years old, french, likes music, reading, platypuses.
I'll be happy to get constructive and interesting feedback as soon as I'll start pumping my scribblings into the appropriate places (for most of them it'll probably be the restrooms). I also have a deviantart account, but who doesn't nowadays (out of professional artists), and it seems I've been selling-out to ÷bersocialweb because I also have reverbnation for my music. You'll see, some day I'll get a facebook...
Anyway! Enough. Really happy to be here, see you soon!
P.S. : Hi there Youngen, let's be intimidated together
Hey everyone. I joined today, actually. I'm a student in design. I've always enjoyed browsing the forums but never really had time to be part of the community until now. Glad to be.
