    The Beginning of a Long Quest

    Hello! I am new to the forums. I say new, I have been lingering around here for the best part of a year now but finally decided it would be silly to not post anything, even if I don't think it should ever be seen by anyone elses eyes.

    I'm currently at college studying on an Art and Design course but guidance is limited from the lecturers.

    I'll start with a few recent things from my sketchbook
    You'll have to excuse the first few scanned images as they are a little faint, my scanner seems to be making a mockery of me today.

    Thanks, ajtabril. I had a look in your sketchbook. You 'have' got skill!

    Here are some random digital paintings I did recently. Some of them are observational and others were just silly joke things I did for one of my lecturers. She seems a bit mad but she comes out with tons of random thoughts every day.

    Just a quick update because I had work last night and got work tonight too. (10 hour nightshifts will be the death of me)

    Hmmm, good studies, keep drawing, make sure to draw all the time at your beginning stage, I suggest drawing bigger too, it will loosen you up. Also when you draw small its easier to hide in your mistakes. Keep going!

    yeah pretty much what JustinBeckett said! good start though.. arh 10 hours nightjobs you say? tough shit. If you're able to doodle while working, then do that as much as possible.
    Even if you got like 5 minutes over, I suggest you just doodle some crap. When I used to have some minutes over I'd just sit and do nothing, you know, like waiting for a bus or the train. I got the tip to start doodling when I have those minutes, and sure enough, even if 5 minutes is nothing, do it 10 times a week and you have almost an hour of drawing!

    JustinBeckett - Thanks. I will definitely work bigger. I am just scribbling in a small sketchbook at the moment and finding it rather restricting. Ta for the tip!

    DefiledVisions - Yeah, they can be a killer some times. I try and cram in atleast a few minutes in on my breaks and before I leave but it never feels like enough. I suppose when you put it that way it does though. Cheers!

    Another couple of scribbles before I jump back in bed again.

    It's been a while since I last posted but I've been busy with other things, not an excuse, I know. I am about to enter my final project at college which is cool though, it's an illustration project about English Myths and Legends. The final books will be judged and the winner gets a laptop. Safe to say I'm going in guns blazing!

    I've been unhappy with college up to this point, I'm in my element now.

    If I can I'll get round to posting some of the concepts and illustrations I'll be making during the next 6ish weeks. Any crits you have on them would be great because I could use any help I get.

    Until then I'll throw down a few sketches I did recently while I wasn't tied up with other things.
