I've been a long-time lurker of this place. But until now I've never had the guts to dive into the community.
I am a 23 year old in medical school, but my true love is for making art, and this has only grown. Even though I find myself having less and less time for it. I've always been rather saddened that I haven't been allowed an opportunity to formally study art, and as years pass I cringe when I think about how much I don't know, and how that lack of knowledge is stopping me from getting any better properly. It's discouraging but I have no plans of letting go of maybe the one thing that gets me passionate.
I hope you guys can help me better myself, even if only a little bit, even if slowly. I have been drawing on-and-off (more off than on to be honest) the past years without much direction considering the demands of medicine. There is much I want to know, and I am looking forward to anyone here willing to drop me nuggets of advice and guidance. I am excited to meet all of you .
