So I'm going to attempt to upload all the artwork that I've created in chronological order. Hopefully this'll showcase some development or something. I've lost or thrown away a lot of it :/ but this is what I have. I'll be embarrassed to upload some of it but I feel it'll be a disservice to viewers not to show any progress I make honestly. Many of these were drawn based off of the works of artists that I no longer remember :/ I'm not claiming any of these as my own work.
I'm trying to devote at least 2 hours a day to drawing in the hopes of one day making a living off of it. I've played guitar for 6 years, often for upwards of 4 hours a day, and I'll take the concepts of learning that I gained from it(consistency, diligence, etc.) and apply it to this. I've never really given this a consistent effort before. I'm excited.
I would appreciate any critique or advice and encourage anyone wishing to contribute such words to be as honest as possible. You won't hurt my feelings and I will appreciate it, I promise.
I consider myself a beginner and my plan at the moment is to familiarize myself with figure drawing to the point where I don't need a reference. I've been working through David Finch's Dynamic Figure Drawing DVD on the body in an attempt to do so and I think after that I'll move on to my Bridgman and Hogarth books.
If anyone has any books or changes to my study plan they'd like to recommend I'd be appreciative. I'm trying to set realistic, short-term goals at the moment as any long term goals I set will probably change due to my lack of knowledge.
I look forward to hearing from you all and hopefully contributing to the community when I've learned enough. This website is amazing. The amount of knowledge has me almost overwhelmed. I have like 20 threads open that I plan on reading haha .
I think I was in 6th grade when I drew this polar bear. I don't remember exactly though.
