Short term goal: Overcome my fear of drawing in public/infront of people. Worry less about what others think of me and my work.
Long term goal: Become the best environment designer I can possibly be.
With that out of the way, Hi. Name's Demha and I'm 23. I want to earn my living doing what I love to do the most, drawing.
Some time last week I just picked up the pencil for the first time in ages and grabbed the nearest book and drew someting from it. This page is the result
Saw this photo online and decided to draw from it. Her name is Maria Mena apparently.
Ever since registering, I always wanted to start my sketchbook with amazing drawings, like a grande opening if you will, but I realize that day was never gonna come without actually starting a sketchbook to get to that level. heh.

Never Attempt the Possible;attempt the impossible and even if you fail,you'll fall among the stars.
These images are the best examples from my observational drawings over the last 2 days.
Drawing the ruins made me realize that I really need to study perspective, I found it so hard. With the hands I'm finding it difficult to draw the four fingers in proportion with the thumb (I always start with the thumb). I've got to learn how to measure with my eyes.
Lately I've been feeling melancholic and filled with regret because of failing my degree. Haven't been drawing much since I don't really know what to focus on anymore. I'm already thinking of changing the goals I wrote down in my opening post. Nothing seems interesting.
I'll keep on drawing from life for now.
Below: drawings are from observation of cathedral ruins
Below: Moved to Damascus last month, and this is my first drawing, the statue of Saladin. From observation.
