Hello all! I am new to this community. I tried registering a while ago but for some reason I couldn't post. Anyways, I am here looking for some supplemental instruction for some of my figure drawing/gesture drawings. I really want to dig deep and master the concepts of figure drawings because I personally feel that in doing so, it'll aid me in other styles I intend to follow.
A little about me:
I am 27 years old that lives in the Chicagoland area. I live with my girlfriend and two young boys, Aiden and Alex who inspire me to work harder at my art. I had drawn in high school a lot and taken classes, but abandoned for a very long time and took it up recently within the last year. Next month will be my 3rd semester at the Academy of Art University, pursuing my BFA in Illustration. My ultimate goal, like many here, is to become a concept artist. However, my backup plan if I continue to work hard is to freelance while maybe working on the side to have some stability. I currently work full time as well while doing school online and tending to my children, so I've been accustomed to being busy and working hard at everything I do.
Right now, I am proficient in graphite and charcoal when it comes to figure drawing. I have been drawing mostly from photos provided through school, what I can from life, and I recently obtained a copy of "All That It's Worth" by Andrew Loomis. I finished reading it, and boy do I have a lot to learn.
Attached is some of my better works. I've failed much before achieving some successes I assure you and I can only expect more. Please enjoy and I would love to hear from anyone and everyone!
Thank you, and I sincerely apologize if I posted in the wrong area for a brief introduction.
