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.

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 -

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
