Join 500,000+ Artists
Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
I'm turning 30 in the coming May. Always wanted to draw my imaginations down since I was a kid. But I was never able to learn the skill well. Now i'm getting older year after year, I think it's time to pick up the pen and do something.
15 minutes a day is far from the time needed to be a real good artist, but seriously it's all I can do as a beginner. The point is, DO IT EVERY DAY. Since being a writer needs only 15 minutes a day at the beginning, I figure that this theory can be used for other skills as well.
I'll post my practices here everyday. It's not gonna be goodlooking for quite a long time. But I'm trying, and nothing will stop me from trying.
Let's see how far I can get.

it's actually more than one hour. and unfinished. will continue next time when I feel like finishing it.
i really like movement sketches.
Negative Space drawing. it is said that negative space practice works better when you are sleepy, so I did it before bed.
Glad to see someone else starting out too Drawing, at the beginning, used to be the most frustrating thing in the world for me... having something in my head and not even understanding the procedure for how to get it out and the result is always so far away and so immature compared to what I was thinking of... It does take a lot of time to learn the 'grammar' of drawing and to get enough mileage to be able to use it... I'm a few years into the learning process, it is very very slow, but it does happen Good luck to you! I'll be stopping by every once in a while to see how you're doing
30 seconds drawing. Did in the morning before going to work, in case I get too tired to draw after work.
Not as good as the first time, I figure it's the positon problem. Last time I did it sitting straight up, this time lean backwards into pillows.
It took me almost 1 hour and still not looking right. So what, I've already tried my best.
More than 90 minutes. But I actually enjoyed it. The combination of simple pot and simple wild flower brings peace to my mind.

15 minutes it is! Simple and easy. I think I'm getting some kind of feeling back.
Great start mate! Your line work shows some nice form and good control. All signs of someone with a knack for art! Keep doing those studies as much as you can, and as you build up mileage your stuff will come out better and better. I think the way your going with regular practice, you will see huge improvements in a short time. Keep posting!
My first skull.
I was so tired, got home at 23:30 from work. So I just draw whatever that comes into my mind.
done in 20 minutes. and...It looks like hell!
I'm honered to witness the upgrading of conceptart, the forum was offline last night I couldn't post. But the surface does look much better than it used to be.
Great start so far! All I can really say is keep going, and I do hope you are able to find more time (although you seem to like going over 15 minutes with your paintings )
Ohh, do keep it up! Liking #11 and #12! Try and keep those Loomis studies going where you can, it's very valuable indeed, it'll help with observational skills and of course drawing people a great deal, condensed way to bump your drawing skills hehe. I'll keep an eye on this
I do believe this is my Sketchbook. Take a look, feedback and anything that will help is always appreciated!
Did it last night before bed, the website was offline so had to post it today.
It looks a lot like monkey or anything but human
But I know it's gonna be better and better.
This looks better, ugly still, but at least human. Not built from the skull, because I think I need some normal heads for now to clear some wrong ideas out of my head.
I was drunk last night, dizzy and lazy, but I knew there was a task waiting before bed.
"So What? This is also drawing!"
So here comes the result.
I did look a lot like this last night.
Loomis study from step one.
Doing faster and faster.
Yesterday I went to bed at 4:20 pm, and woke up this morning at 7:30 am. Finally get a good sleep. Didn't draw anything, I will make it up in a few days.
This one is for today.

This is for yesterday. Fell asleep before 19:30, too tired.
