I drew my first apple in the bumskee thread in the Photoshop forum about a month ago, and I'm suddenly more excited about learning to draw and paint than I've ever been before.
Don't get me wrong. You know, I liked to draw as a kid, and my art teacher in 7th grade told me I had talent - the usual shit - but I've never really taken it further than that. I'm still a total art noob.
But I've decided to change that, so wish me luck.
Below are a few things. On the left is my first still-life apple ever. I didn't even put that one in the apple thread because I was too embarrassed about it. Made January 29th.
Second is my latest apple. Made March 4th. Visible improvement. I love visible improvement.
Last is a drawing I did from reference a few hours ago. Incidently, it's also my first painting of a human in PS. I started to colour it and realised that I'm awful at colouring people - especially hair - so I stopped. But I'll do another one tomorrow and it should be better.
