G'day. My name is Pedro Jorge Magalhaes but most people just call me PJ (a lot shorter don't you reckon?*S*). I am trying really hard to improve my drawing skills so that i can eventually tell stories in a graphic format (i am also taking baby steps to tell stories in a more verbal format). I have a pretty bad work ethic but i am also trying hard to improve that.
And this is where this thread comes in. I hopped in here to check out Rodrigo's and JDINX's threads and i have gotten hooked. There is an amazing amount of energy at this place. If that can rub off on me so that i draw a little more regularly than the only thing better than that, in my book, is improvement. And since i believe one will lead into another, let's not delay this any longer.
As it will be readily evident at the beginning i am not on par with the quality of this place but that means i have something to shoot for, right?
Just, huh, quick question: do i have to have the pics up on the web somewhere so that i can link them here? is that how it works?
Eager to start,

hey welcome PJ, yeh i just started my sketchbook too. but anyway yeh you need to find some kind of website that will host your pictures first of all, i use www.deviantart.com as its free and easy but there is a lot more which everyone else uses, once you've got your pictures up on the web the best thing to do then is to right click on your image on the website than copy the url and paste it inbetween these image tags:
[ img] here is where you paste the url [ /img]
but remember there are no spaces in the tags when you do them, have a go and ill keep checking on you, ask anymore questions if your unsure,
i would strongly recpomment you forget about dev art coz its a pain in the ass to submit stuff if ure gonna be uploading 3 or 4 pieces per day and besides they dont allow you to post pics only links
I have come across my first bump on the road. For some reason my wireless adapter and scanner just dont like each other. I have spent all morning trying to figure out why i could not scan things in to show you guys and it has taken a lot of energy out of my morning. *huffs*.
But it's all cool. I should have more energy after soccer. So i'll post what i did a couple of weeks ago and then start doing new ones today. *S*
And i will also go to that bucket website to see if i can start putiing things in there.*S*
... i really like the way other people do their stuff but it is just going to take a while for me to find the place to put my images. I went to photbucket Rodrigo but presently you can only sign up for a free account between certain times of the day and i have yet to be online at those times.
hey man, this is cool seeing as were working on just about the same things from the loomis books, so how old are you and how long have you been drawing for? its great to see you're stuff, lets see some more
