Diaforetikos' Daily Sketchbook
Hi everyone! Thank you for stopping by. I'm kinda new here, but not new to art. I've been into art since the 3rd grade but after I graduated from high school, I stopped taking art seriously... until now.
I am making this sketchbook so I may better myself. This is a serious dedication to myself and it may be one of the biggest in my life. This is my promise: "I, Orlando Larks, vow to draw everyday for the rest of my life." Very simple, but hopefully very powerful. This isn't a joke. I'm tired of wasting my life at a job I'm never excited about. Only to come how to a paycheck that is never enough. I love art and always have, so hopefully I can do something with art and maybe give myself a better life.
I know there are a lot of sketchbooks that claim they will be dedicated, so I don't want to claim. I want it to be a vow to me and to everyone else that reads this. I have to do this.
The journey to becoming a great artist will be long and hard, but I don't plan on giving up. I want to become a concept artist. Maybe freelance. Anything art is good. But first comes the hardest part... practice.
Here is my list of things to practice:
I don't think there is a specific order in which they should be arranged seeing as how they are all important in art.
- Color and Light
For the first part my of training comes everyone's favorite, anatomy. I don't know how many sketchbooks I've seen that had anatomy. It is a very difficult subject. I'm thinking about enrolling in a figurative art class for my anatomy practice. This will be my hardest task and plan on this part being the longest.
My first images will be old stuff. I don't have much, and they are all old anime wanna-be stuff. I'm not into drawing anime anymore. Just posting it show everyone where I'm at with my art. Hopefully I'll get some tips from everyone. Here is my work.
Thanks for stopping by!
