To start, I joined up with DeviantArt for a bit, however it hasn't been working out for me. What I have been looking for is a place I can post my stuff, and get real criticism so I can improve my art. However, there on DA people only say "Good job" or "nice artwork". Sure it's nice to have people say my art is good (though it isn't haha), but I'd much prefer to have some constructive feedback. So anyone who looks at my stuff, you're all more than welcome to jgo all out. Feel free to be as harsh and honest as you'd like, don't be worried about offending me, I can take it. Any bit of advice would be very greatly appreciated.
I did make this account a bit ago, but I'm actually a little intimidated by all the great talent on this site, a little worried everyone will kick me off the site of something as I'm nowhere near the level of most people on here D:
But I've been looking around the site, and it seems like the best place I've found so far. People seem to be honest, and help others improve. Not to mention all the great resources. I think having this sketchbook will help to keep me motivated to draw every day and put it on here.
I'll be uploading my first stuff tomorrow morning. I found an awesome site for figure drawing which I'll be drawing from. http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php
I'm looking forward to my 'journey' so to speak, to hopefully becoming a half decent artist.
