    Keeping Art Alive in Medicine

    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 .

    The attached image is a drawing I made for an aunt sometime last year. She wanted something for her thesis cover and I jumped at the opportunity to make something amidst a busy and stressful school year.

    I tend to draw animals/creatures more comfortably than people. But learning how to draw them properly is one of the top things I want to accomplish! The attached images are doodles I currently have on my computer.

    I intend to post more recent sketches as soon as I am able to scan them. I am making an effort to keep a physical sketchbook with me in an attempt to snatch free doodling times as they come.

    Thanks Leo! I am a big dragon lover ! Whenever I am in a slump I end up drawing them haha. And I know what you mean! I actually bought this Monster Hunter artbook this summer, and the variety of creatures and designs are amazing! Lots of dragon-like designs too so I was in heaven. I'll post more soon .

    Hello! Indeed I plan to . No doubt we will be busy a lot, but I hope to make the most out of whatever free time I have. And I suppose there is the one upside that we are exposed to a lot of anatomy in this field .

    Thanks I found those little critters such a joy to doodle!

    The dragons are good. I think a way of creating more believable fantasy creatures would be to study real life reptiles and incorporate their designs into your dragons. For instance look at this majestic creature -

    Oh the iguana! I truly can see that as good animal to base a dragon on. Just look at those spines, and those spikes at the back of his head! This is the first time I noticed those! Scales are another thing that makes me shrink from intimidation. I'll take your advice and give a go at familiarising myself with these critters .

    Haha thanks for the encouragement Bri! I have a tendency to default to doodling dragons aimlessly. Been a bit preoccupied in sorting enrolment stuff the past days but I do have the whole day tomorrow to relax at home and sketchsketchsketch
