[EDIT 08-jul-10] I think I'll just keep uploading my stuff to my dA (zzgrst@dA) and come back when I'm better, see you there!
Hello there my good friends!
Even though I registered a long time ago, I'm a total newcomer here. I have always been tempted to join and make a sketchbook but never truly felt ready...
until I noticed I'm just loosing precious learning time and helpful advice.
I have always loved drawing ever since I was young, but I never really got serious with it until about three years ago, until then all I did was scribble from time to time and amaze everyone around me with my bad drawings, looking back I feel it would have been great if I had someone to look up to and compete against.
Three years ago I was in my first year of college in a telecomunications engineer carreer since I had no other goal in life. Luckily for me I found DeviantArt where I found such great artists that made me notice just how terribly bad I was, this pumped me so much that I began for the first time in my life really drawing seriously, everyday.
Eventually after 2 years, as I found out how much I loved art over everything else in my life, I decided I didn't want to study that career anymore, It was really depressing having to waste so many hours per day in something you loathe... it took me one year to "convince" (more like argue and fight like crazy) my mother into accepting that I was gonna stop the carreer, and ever since september 2009 I became a free man! and now I can completely devote myself to learning!
...........DAMN, that was a long wall of text, now just art related stuff.
Time to learn!
