quick background: I'm 19 yrs old, no tuition in art but keen to improve, just damn lazy and ignorant about it. I know i shouldn't be lazy, but i am, so this sketchbook is an attempt to fight my laziness somewhat and get some of the basics down (since i started out, like so many, drawing anime, and still do, i guess, i really don't have much of an idea of the basics - actually, i don't even know what counts as basics). I think it would be awesome to have an art career some day, but i know i don't have the experience or knowledge neccessary to do that yet, and i don't even know what aspect of the industry appeals to me most yet.
so to start off with, some photostudies out of magazines, just drawn iwth ballpen. a non-ref charcoal sketch to show what i don't know about drawing faces. a quick digital study from national geographic. By the way, the flowers are drawn around the most screwed up drawings. It's to keep me from scribbling out every single mistake i make.
I'm not quuuite sure about the etiquette of this site yet. Have I done anything wrong, like too big image files or something?
