Hello all x: I'm Emily, i'm 24, be 25 next week.
I'm not the best artist, and compared to people on here i cry every time i think about CA. But i thought it was time to bite the bullet and really strive to become better. Because art really is my life. I'm studying to hopefully be an art teacher some day, as i love helping people learn.
Anyway, down to it i guess. I've been drawing since i was younger. Had i kept drawing from life i would've been a much better artist, but drawing humans was an odd concept for me. I guess. So, i've been making strides and leaps and bounds since then. Every single year i improve, which is a good thing.
I know where my struggles are, but i don't know how to overcome them exactly. I look up tutorials and scan other people's pictures to try and figure out what i'm doing wrong. Mainly perspective and anatomy. Although i couldn't color my way out of a paper bag, though i've tried.
So yeah, i need help. I look forward to the words of wisdom ^^; I'm also told i'm too hard on myself, but i can't help it when i see so many mistakes. x.x
As for what i use: Mainly Paint Tool SAI. - but i'll post some of my school work up here, as i love my student work~ *sigh* Why can't summer have art at my school... :c
