I've been lurking around here for a few days now trying to read through ALL the information threads, (As you can imagine, i'm no where near done).
I'm enrolled in College right now as a Graphic Design Major but i've always had this huge interest in art that i'm now pursuing. I have a fair amount
of Graphic History knowledge because of that, did some studying on art movements in the past and the evolution/rise of new art styles.
Pretty much adore anything which is from the Art Nouveau movement.
In terms of experience i did a fair amount of sketching in Highschool mostly as an avid fan of all things Anime...
everything is still pretty new to me. anyhow Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life and Andrew Loomis - Figure Drawing
are my bibles for the next few months/years. Hoping to improve alot with the help of this community.
