    Cow Chris finally learns to draw

    I've been a member here for quite a while just lucking around and I've wanted to start one of these for ages. Drawing is one of those things I've always wished I was better at so I'm going to try and make a habit of practicing everyday, for the next 21 days I'm going to make sure I draw for at least an hour a day.
    I probably wont upload everyday but I'll date everything so I can track my progress.

    Also sorry for crappy quality I dont have a scanner atm.

    Edit: I shrunk the images and change the brightness/contrast a bit to try make them a bit less fussy

    Edit again: I'm alot further behind with my exam revision than I though I'm going to start this properly when exams are over

    You're off to a good start! Might I suggest studying skeletons and muscle groups next.

    it'll stress you out even more so there's really nothing we can do about it after all."

    Welcome to the "seriously barbaric drawing hand" boat. Lets see if we can't give our hands some culture when it comes to the visual arts. Ditto on Toraneko's reply. Study up on skeletons and muscles. They help. Partially to give you better knowledge of anatomy, but when you are first starting out, mostly to build confidence and such.
    Also, to save you the trouble of asking, find loomis books. Everyone recommends them. They are pure gold. You used to be able to download them online, but the copyright must have been bought or something, because its much harder to find them now. Ask around though and I'm sure someone can point you to a good place.
