I've been lurking around here for a little while now and thought I'd finally introduce myself. I recently got back into drawing after spending a number of years programming. A while ago I started to notice that being a professional programmer wasn't too appealing anymore, so I decided to look into becoming an artist like I had wanted to be before I started programming. To make a short story shorter, I have become very interested in art again and I hope to become a concept artist for a game company like I had wanted to be before. So right now I'm in the middle of applying to the School of Art at the University of Washington.
I'd like to say that this message board has been very informative to me. Lots of inspiration to be found here, and lots of valuable information, too.
Here's a sketch I made yesterday. It's obvious I have a long way to go still. I had originally planned on just making the head, but I decided to make the rest of the body. That's why I didn't have room on the paper for the whole thing.
