    Icon a second chance sketchbook

    Reasons for my sketchbook: I've tried many times over the years to seriously attempt to learn how to draw better since I've always had a small aptitude towards art. I realize now that I cannot keep avoiding this because I am too afraid to fail. I have learned that fear of failing is worse than failing itself, it used to paralyze me and now I am ready to start this art journey again. Improvement is impossible if I am to afraid to start something that I love!

    Where I am at now: The bare basics. I'm using Drawing Essentials by Deborah Rockman to help me through. I've begun drawing basic forms and adding easy values to them. Gesture drawing everyday for now, my goal for gesture at the moment is to help with putting life into the characters I will design later on. I do some contour drawings and still life and have just started on learning perspective. My imagination with drawing and art in general is basically empty right now, I don't have enough memory references to draw from I think.

    I will start now and end never!

    Thanks! "Fun" is one of my tags.

    I will start posting drawings later when it's not so late.

    Gesture drawings from yesterday. I probably won't be uploading everything I draw, just a few updates from time to time.

    Trying to get a grasp on shading. I found a website that allows you to print out formats for different shapes and then you just glue them up (the sphere was styrofoam although).

    ETA: I would absolutely love constructive criticism from everyone! I'm really eager to improve and to know what to change in my sketches.

    I'm already doing that, drawing has consumed my soul that is to say. I can't post all of my sketches because of work, not to mention posting the sketches takes away time from drawing hehe. Thanks for commenting.

    I think the knife shape was too difficult for me to draw at this stage, I need to get a better grip on perspective as well as proportion. I've read the section on proportion in Drawing Essentials but it confused me. Does anyone know of any websites explaining proportion and foreshortening?

    (The fringes etc. mentioning in the hand drawing was me trying to explain The Chrysalids to my little sib. Great book. )
