    Let's see if i can learn to draw

    Hello everyone! My name is vinay. i am 27 years old, working in a bank. well! i always loved comics, cool characters , cartoons but never thought that i would wanna draw them. although i did use to try to draw when i was kid but as i grew up i got involved in studies and job and all. now about one year back came across some cool character drawings on internet and that led me to really neat resources to learn how to draw and i was amazed to see how much hard work and study one has to do to learn to draw. and stupid me always thought its something only some select talented people can do. but now i know that anyone can draw and that really fueled a strong desire in me to learn to draw..

    although i know its never too late to learn anything but every now and then the feeling of starting late creeps up on me and i really get sad and discouraged. i wanted to join an art school but when i told my parents about it that i wanna quit my job and join an art school they said it's an idiotic decision, so i kinda had to stick with my job and learn as much as i can on my own


    i have been drawing for almost one year now but its been on and off , and honestly mostly off and within this one year i pretty much wasted my time on deciding how to start , what do draw first, what book should i pick and what not..so i guess you guys can help me with that too. rite now i am working with andrew loomis "Figure drawing for all it's worth" and stephens rogers "Atlas of human anatomy" .


    i won't be able to post my work everyday as my job takes up almost my whole day however i will try to upload new work at least thrice in a week

    so enough talking, lets post some Drawings

    i made that in photoshop.. don't know much about shadows and lights yet, so pretty much had to rely on observation for shading

    Hey Vins. Your start looks great! The skulls are sweet and your Loomis too. We are starting at the same age and it looks like you are already further ahead of me. It would be great to follow you. I know exactly what you mean by "it's not too late, but occasionally it does creep up on you.

    I wouldn't say quit your job. Stay here, I believe you can learn so much from this site...I already have and I expect to learn a lot more.

    Definitely stick with Loomis...and Bridgman too if you want to learn figure. Seems the way to go from what I have seen people say..well, 'write'. Also do not neglect drawing from life, things you can see...on the way to and from work, in your lunch break etc...

    All the best..I'm looking forward to more!

    i attempted to do a master copy of DÜRER, Albrecht , i took the reference from web gallery of art. i know my skills are limited but i guess i could've done some more work on it like on the ear for example... but even to get that result it took me around 3 hours . i got bored

    Hey, thanks for dropping by my sb! You have some great stuff here, very nice start for a sketchbook! I really like the Albrecht Dürer copy! Is it done with colored pencil?

    @ Baudolino .. oh i am really glad that you dropped by my sketch book and actually liked something too but i have to confess that i cheated a bit on that its done with regular 2b graphite pencil i just gave it a tint in Photoshop using hue saturation



    well! here are some very quick skull studies ..i am always copying things so wanted to see how well i can draw skull if dont have a reference ignore the shading this is something i am still trying to learn
