New guy from Denmark speaking!
I used to draw a lot as a kid and I remember wanting to become an animator, an illustrator, or maybe graphic designer -- just about anything that had to do with creating something visual. My parents, school teachers, etc. really did encouraged me to follow that path, or whatever path I wanted to follow, but they wanted me to go high school (i.e. the Danish equivalence, which is actually somewhere in between high school and college: the gymnasium) before doing anything else.
I had also been playing some music, and when I started high school I had gotten pretty serious about playing music - and of course I was also just busy being a teen. My drawing though had been reduced to occasional sketched during class...
After studying a year at the conservatory I began thinking, that maybe music wasn't the only thing for me after all — what about art? At least I became very unsure, and I still am — but, now I've taken a break from my studies at the conservatory to study classical drawing for one semester and think things through.
The course started a couple of weeks ago so I already have a bunch of work, that I'll be uploading to this sketchbook. I'll try putting the stuff, I've done so far, up chronologically...
This first bunch of drawings is just from my sketchbook from January 4-5th:
