Emma Rose Paterson
My name's Emma and I'm from Wales in the UK.
I got told I was good at drawing when I was little so I kept it up.
I got serious at 17 (I think), 4 years ago, and bought my Intuos 3. For some reason I thought my half decent pencil drawings meant I was ready to become a fully blown technicolour digital artist...
I was misinformed.
Since then I've been learning from the internet. I did some art in school but it didn't teach me anything much.
It's been difficult; my attitude has required fixing, my personality some adjusting; but I've learned a hell of a lot and I'm eager to soak up more. Recently I've realized I'm not going to scrape by any further without some serious studying. I want to work on my fundamental skills, STOCK UP MY VISUAL LIBRARY and make stronger images so I can show my parents all these years at the computer have been worthwhile!
I love this forum and I think it will help enormously. I'm happy to receive any kind of critique, I'm not going to get upset.
ONTO THE ART.
Since first posting online I've improved but I still have a long way to go.
I want/need to concentrate on anatomy (that damn arm) and I'm also hoping to dip my toes into environments.
I'm currently studying history and sociology in college so I don't have as much time for art as I would like.
So here we go!
