    Ixallus's Sketchbook: A Scrub Still trying after dropping the ball a few times

    Hi CA.org,

    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!

    Current Version
    -I Live, I Die, I live again! V.1.5 (2015)

    -Dropped the ball for to long V.1.4 (2014)
    -Still trying after dropping the ball a few times V1.3 (2013)
    -Still trying, and maybe failing less now V1.2 (2012)
    -Tying to make something V1.0 (2011)

    Hey man, you and I both dig the same artists, so you -must- be cool.

    The site software is getting updated atm, which has buggered the attachment manager (its getting improved actually!) so yeah, photobucket until then.

    A pity, as I really want to see what's in this sketchbook.

    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

    Very cool indeed, and yeah i've been following Craig Mullins, Frank Frazetta and Iian Mccaig for awhile now. They've been a huge inspiration for me.

    @mitchoo
    Cool! and yeah after coming to CA.org i realized that thinking age is a factor in it is kind of ridiculous.

    Cool sketches! I really like your monsters/creatures, they look very creepy and cool.
    Have you ever tried adding color to them?
    Keep up those anatomy studies, they'll help you make those characters even cooler!
