Hi everybody! My name is Johan and I'm 23 years old. I've been drawing cartoons, comics and funny animals since I was a kid, but I've never really paid any attention to art fundamentals.
Beginning in January this year I started reading Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain and The Practice and Science of Drawing in order to improve. But I was kind of lazy, didn't draw much and had no specific goals.
After a while, though, I got inspired by a lot of talented artists out there and decided to reboot the system and start all over again. Because if I want to be in their league I better shape up.
This happened in June. I immediately began developing my drawing abilities, although I've been having some problems keeping a steady workflow. Maybe the summer wasn't the best time of the year to begin studying, I dunno. Having a sketchbook online will hopefully help me focus.
I'm gonna try to post everything I draw (and later on paint) during the day. Please feel free to critique and comment on my stuff. It would really mean a lot to me.
Just for comparison, here's two self portraits I did as part of the exercises in DOTRSOTB (made in January and April) and one I drew yesterday. Looks like I have a long road ahead of me
