because the number of life drawing I've ever done can be counted on one hand.
And even the first 2 I uploaded here is from a year ago
Hopefully getting this thread up will motivate me to draw more. Hopefully.

looking good .. and don't worry, I've never drew from life yet <shrug>
From the only drawing class I've ever taken. Other people got to draw figurines, flower vase, etc. but from where I sat I could see only stuffed chicken. And so stuffed chicken I drew...
There'll probably be more recent ones coming soon, in which people will realize that I've made no progress whatsoever in the last 2 years.
Pretty much just learning how to draw, and also practice using markers. I realized rather belatedly that it might be better not using ink outline and just let color and shadow define shapes. color mixing is rather unsatifactory Oh well, I just need to practice more then.
Learning to draw eyes
Learning to paint digitally. The left one looks rather abnormal since I did that one first and, having never done digital painting before, had to figure out just how to do that as I went. Rather disappointed with the caps though, seeing that I managed to make them look smooth instead of rugged as they're supposed to be.
BTW, from photo reference.
Those are a sweet lookin' pair of nuts you got there .
Nice stuff. Even though that left nut is abit weird in its shape, it's still got good colouring too it.
Damn, loving those eyes.
Stuff I did as both learning piece for digital painting and a study of plants. The order of painting: starting from the horrible green leaf on top left going clockwise. Pretty much just trial and error as it went. I'll probably do similar practice with human skin next, seeing that I've never managed to pick right skin tone and shade it realistically
You say you don't have such and such skills, but I think these drawing are really good.
