Ixallus's Sketchbook: A Scrub Still trying after dropping the ball a few times
I don't really have much art experience, In high school doodled anime characters.
After high school stopped sketching or drawing all together. I figured, if i wanted to be a professional
artist i would have had to start studying seriously much earlier in my life.
Then, I came across CA.org, I was inspired by the drive of the people here. That led to me opening the Pandora's Box of Awesome Artists.
It inspired me to really get back into art and push myself
Update(2015): You could say life caught up to me or something like that, 2014 was bone dry, literally a year of dust collecting on the sketchbooks and tablets. Back in 2015 with renewed efforts!

Really a pity that we can't see your drawings, I'm 24 and also stopped drawing at the age of 16. Until I was 19 and picked up cartoon drawing. Now I want to learn fine arts and picked up the same books as you did. Can't wait to see your study's and drawings!
I really think we still can learn a lot, 23/24 isn't that old right
