Mental-Mouse Needs to Practice
Hullo, Im not really good at this entire intro thing so Imma make it short.
I use to draw but stopped seven years ago. However three months ago I decided to get back into it. I've made some progress but at the moment I just feel like I have a lot of bad habits I need to expose. I am rather keen on cartooning styles.

I fear posting here. A lack of confidence amongst other maladies plagued me in such a manner so as to stifle any actual progress in this one activity I find some small amount of happiness. So, as I turned yet another year older I looked back and than forward and decided that I had allowed myself to be ruled by such terrible things for far too long. For the Past few weeks than I have been driving myself to draw and practice each and every day. I've given up my games, television and other such activities that distract me. So, after almost a year without much practice I've committed myself to find myself within Five to Six year at a level where I am comfortable with putting out a project I've had stewing in my mind for almost a decade.
My college studies are concerned with Psychology and Education. Everything I learn from the, I will attempt to apply to what I draw and improve upon me negative cognitive processes.

This came to me in the middle of the night right before passing out. Have yet been able to recapture the likeness and feeling to an acceptable degree as of yet.

Still need to force myself to get started on life drawings or atleast grabbing photos. Keep on getting distracted. Though finally being able to afford medication should help.
A simple sketch for my brother I did to warm up.
And a rather NSFW and rather offensive work I doodled out just before passing out at 3am.

You have some nice sketches. Keep hammering those Loomis and Bridgman books, and keep drawing a lot!

Gonna go redo that face on the ref sheet to make it less displeasing to me.

Great start. Don't let the fear thing stop you - we all feel it. I have felt like giving up on a hundred occasions, but then push though it. Just think about it - in a year's time you could either draw and be better or not draw and be no closer to your goal. The year will pass either way!
Would love to see some of your work in colour.
