    No, Really. Pay Attention To Me.

    I guess I'll just say a little about me: I'm 17 and I doodle a lot in school. Other than that, I don't have a great deal of exposure to art. I don't take it very seriously, as you can clearly tell. I just like to have fun with it. I just ordered a Wacom Graphire recently, for when I become a bit more inspired and motivated, but it would seem that the very moment I ordered it, was the moment I lost all my creativity.

    Anyway, here are my first couple attempts at painting (in order):

    I got incredibly lazy when I got to the hand on this one and I just kind of forgot to fix it.

    Not a bad start. If you're lacking inspiration, browse some of the other artists on this site, or elsewhere... I know sometimes that helps to light a creative fire under my ass! My suggestion to your current posts would be for you to study human anatomy. Good luck!

    Thanks for the advice.

    Also, I've been wondering, what's a good way to practice different basic poses? The only time I really get to sit down and look at anyone is in school and really I only ever see the backs of their heads.

    Thanks. Like I said, I just like to have fun.

    Anyway, here's two pics of a work in progress that I probably won't be able to finally finish for a few days because of work and school:

    Depressed Clowns. Hilarious.

    If I don't have time to make a serious attempt (due to work and school), I might as well make a very quick sketch. It may at least help me get used to using a tablet.

    It's really weird but whenever I'm busy all I want to do is sit down and draw and paint for as long as possible but whenever I actually have the chance, I just don't feel like it. All I can bring my self to draw are these crappy little doodles.

    I'm really hoping that the next time I get a chance to update, it will be worth it.

    Hey, I was wondering if I could get some feedback on these muscles. Do they seem reasonably accurate? I actually used a reference to draw the muscles. That's the closest I've gotten to an actual study in a long time. I've got to get on the ball.

    Excessive and unnecessary additional explanation:This is just a WIP I hope to continue tomorrow. We'll see though. Sundays are the only day I ever really have off and for some reason I have absolutely no ambition on that day of the week. Ever. I'm probably going to end up clothing most of the flesh, especially to the bottom and left side of the page (as the lack of detail on these areas is testimony to), and that's why I'm posting it now, as it is. To get some feedback on the muscles.

    Wow. I actually got a little further today.

    But should this have taken me about 5 hours to do? I'm guessing not. It always takes me so long and yet I get such unimpressive results.
