hey... I'm new here. I've had a drawing tendency for awhile, but never really allowed for it to mature or develope much. lately, I've been doodling more and wanted to come here to gain some perspective, focus and direction for improvement. I'm going to get an anatomy book soon (recommendations?) and begin from there. I don't know anything about lighting or shadowing, so was hoping to learn about those concepts too.
I'll start with a few of my finished drawings from high school art class:
MC Escher reference, and then a random kitty internet photo reference.
