Hello everyone !
So it's my first time around here.
I'm 23, male from france.
I've been drawing for a long time now, but never got into seriously. I used to draw everyday at school because I wanted to become an illustrator or work in the video game industry but I didn't have the mindset to work on it at the time, which I regret now.
A few months ago I dropped off school and moved to a new place. I wanted to start a new life to become what I've been dreaming of for so long.
That's why I'm here today: I want to learn how to draw like a boss.
I am really motivated as I have a lot of ideas I want to be able to express through means more accurate than words but I can't right now. I always see a lot of things but can't express them and it's really frustrating to be unable to make people see how great it is in my mind.
I see so many artists able to show people the great things they have in mind that I can't help but be willing to reach that level of skill. That's why I want to get better.
But, to be honest, I feel a bit lost as I've gathered a lot of books but I don't know what I should start with so I'll go with anatomy for now, as I have some troubles with proportions, muscles and faces (God I suck at faces, but not for long !)
I also need to learn colors.
Anyway, I'll try to post regularly here. I'll be drawing everyday for the months/years to come because I really want/need to get better at this.
Here's what I did today : 60 pose from posemaniacs. 60 second each. Then some studies and a few drawings from imagination. The last one is my first portrait ever, done with photoshop (ref is Charlize Theron).
Sorry, my scanner did a bad job, and it does not look really good at the moment, but I promise I'll get better !
I hope I was clear, I'm not good at all this stuff ^^
But thanks for your time ! I hope it will be worth it!
