    Just a sketchbook

    Update: I think i need to give myself a proper introduction! (apologize for the half-hazard opening)

    My name is Brandon Le, 18 year old vietnamese american from sacramento, CA. I've drawn ever since i was young ( sure most have a similiar background here -v-;; ) I seriously began drawing during my Freshman year of Highschool (currently a senior), and hope to go to some sort of art college or self studie! I want to be able to be a character designer or a concept artist, but lack the knowledge of what is necessary for being a good concept maker...
    Anyway My goals each day is to draw and paint something everyday,(or at least try to)

    Interests
    I've always been a Huge cartoon/animation/manga fanatic. I find realistic/manga/cartoony styles to be quite appealing!

    Experience:
    I've been entirely self taught.. besides being in art class for 4 years, they do not have a special advanced art or AP art of any sorts, so i spend my time self studying, and doing my own thing. I struggle in many aspects of painting, and i find that digital is a much better medium than acrylic painting (though i appreciate it and do it daily) i much rather enjoy drawing on my tablet then paint on a canvas.

    -Goals: I'm still trying to figure out what to set as a daily goal for myself, so here's what i have so far
    )draw 100 challenges
    )daily 100 gestures(morning exercise 30 secs- 1 minute each)
    )1-2 digital paintings each day
    )5-10+ sketch pages a day

    I'd appreciate any form of help, whether it'd be critiques, or just a comment, everything helps!
