Welcome to my sketchbook.
Iím just another untrained but hopeful young artist. Iíve been drawing and painting, on and off, for a long time, but never in a very organised fashion. My preferred medium used to be pencil on paper, since paints tend to be a lot more messy and inconvenient. Soon after leaving university I discovered digital art, which has been my main focus since.
My ultimate aim is to be a competent cartoonist and game artist, but right now that dream seems pretty far off. My first baby step towards that goal is going to be improving my figure drawing, so that hopefully one day I can draw people out of my imagination without it looking like ass. Iím not currently sure how best to get there, so any more general advice on techniques for improving would be just as welcome as critique on specific pictures. I donít have ready access to real live naked people, so Iím planning to do a lot of studies from photographs, but Iím also planning to bust out the sketchpad and do some quick drawings of real-life things to get me out of the comforting little rut I seem to have dug myself into.
Sketches and studies should come along quite frequently. Exactly how frequently depends on how dedicated I turn out to be to this ďlearning to drawĒ idea. Watch this space.
