I've sort of always grown up with art. I had a ton of art lessons as a kid, but I was mostly told to just go sit and put such and such stroke at such and such place. A lot of my background is in traditional media, mostly pencil/paper sketches. I'm sure some of the theory seeped into me somehow, but when drawing, I mostly go by intuition, and I feel like that's just not getting me anywhere.
Anyway. Here I am now. I'm in first year of university, heading towards a bachelors in science and dreading it.
I want to get (a lot) better at art.
HOPEFULLY, I'll be able to post two pieces a week?
/insert some old stuff and new stuff/

Huh. Really? That's messed up. Oh well. I'll bother you often, so you can link over anytime you want. XD And I asked about the drafting stuff because I did it before (not professionally), and it looked familiar.
Well... that was for a project. I choose that topic (architecture) to focus on urban things and objects. I never did those things and I also never worked with colors, before I went to CA.
I've been (trying) to do 60s sketches at posemaniacs, because they have a program that switches the picture every 60s. I find that I can't capture the details. How are you doing that?
Yeah, I use that, too. But I've made myself a little 60 second soundtrack in a playlist with other music. I count myself down, so I'm always about 50 to 80 seconds at one figure. The little Things I drew in was to remind myself of major muscles and bones. And you by yourself are the most critical person, I watched over your sketches and I think they are really good, just keep up practicing. Btw, great color pieces are in here. I'd be happy to here more from you, bro! =)
