    beginner artist

    Hello everyone..
    I hope you can help me train my drawing skills and hope to hear critics from everyone who is willing to help me out with my newbee art i will do soon.
    I could say that i did quite some art but i stopped doing it for a year or so and now i have to start all over again. Why? Stress made me quit art. Somehow im still willing to learn art. I suppose you will laugh from me cuz im already 22(quite old for starting art). I really want to learn to draw very well and maybe to find some art job in future but now i need support.
    Now where to start? im very self-taught and did not take any art college... u could say im zero
    At the moment im doing some life drawing, just started. Maybe today i will bring it here.

    Hey there Niurik,

    Welcome to the world of aspiring artists. I'm sorry to hear that you quit a while ago, but it's nice to know that you're starting up again with flare. My advice would be that you keep at it, everyone starts somewhere and remember that if you want to become an artist you will never stop working for it!

    Your sketch is nice for a first try, just make sure you're actually drawing from your view of the subject and not what you think it looks like. The buttons on the side are quite small compared to those on the actual mouse and rather than having an oval shape it looks to me that the mouse is shaped inwards in the middle with a little lip coming out for the thumb. I suggest you give yourself a time limit.. maybe 30 seconds or so, to do little sketches on your page of the form of the mouse. (or use a different subject, of course) Do lots and lots! Your movements will gain more flow and your confience in line drawing will grow, you'll see.

    You should check out some of the tutorial posts around here, they're excellent for everyone who wants to learn the foundations of illustration. Here's an example:

    I hope I helped a bit, best of luck to you!

    -Kima.

    Thanx for critics. I need that. I drew that mouse sitting quite uncomfortable and in my view it was little foreshortened. But i see now that buttons are quite little compared to mouse size. Yet im quite bad with drawing shadows/lights with such objects.

    Tried some Assignments from concept art.. Couldn't figure out what to draw. Im very bad at thinking fantasy.. or drawing from imagination. Second drawing had to be my eye x_O looking at a mirror.

    Good start, there is no such thing as "old" when it comes to art 30 secs IMO is a but too fast to start with, feel free to do it on 60 secs. Also grab an anatomy book for artists and learn it (Bridgman,Loomis, etc.).

    Trying to learn real life perspective. I know that already but to make sure if im correct with my knowledge. Here is room and i tried to know where horizon and perspectives lines are. Am i correct? on the right top corner lines is quite far from one point perspective. Did i smth misunderstand about it?

    If i would want to draw it.. Where should i start? Cuz everything is different in size and perspective. How can i mimic room differently somehow? any hints? I could take measurement and start from that. But i think its quite silly...
