I thought that making one of these would be good for me so that I'd be able to track my progress. While I've been drawing cartoon-ish and anime-styled type things for a long time on and off since that's what first inspired me to draw, I've found that I've created a little box for myself in the form of heads, heads and shoulders, or should I say busts or what have you and never moving on from that. I really like to draw and I recently decided that I want to move out of my box and dabble in everything.
The thing is that I have a hard time figuring out just where to start when it comes to anatomy and if I should ever start there at all. For me, becoming an artist is on the back burner. All I want to do for now is improve and get to a level to where I won't feel as though I'm struggling so much.
I also recently looked at MCM's art which recently stopped in 2013 I believe or maybe he got a new sketchbook started up, but the progress was amazing so I became even more so inspired to try this.
I must say that I do enjoy the anime style and I want to further that as much as I can - not that I can't appreciate semi-realism and realism because of the artists here are really amazing.
At the moment, I've just been doing little doodles on this askblog on Tumblr, but I don't think I'm improving at all.
With that said, I'm just at a lost of where to start. I do own two art books and have some Andrew Loomis books on my computer and have recently saved several tutorials. I want to take my art seriously and improve and reach new heights. I just want to draw for myself and feel like I've really and truly accomplished something great.
Art is a hobby for me right now and with hobbies, you want to become better at it.
It's really late, so I probably won't be posting anything this morning - later on at the very least.
