I started drawing when I was in elementary school, and it was one of my biggest past times. About 4 years ago I began to drift away from it until a couple weeks ago when I watched Strip Search when I felt something that inspired me to come back to it again. I've been trying to re-learn the basics for about two weeks now. This is piece, below is the first pencil sketch that I felt confident enough about to show anyone.
As of right now, I'm limited in my material to pencils, and paper (as well as a black pen for inking). I'm drawing on lined paper at the moment because my sketch book is still a little too intimidating. I would really appreciate any advice or critiques, but I'm a novice when it comes to digital drawing and I've only ever taken an basic art 101 class, so bear with me if I don't understand some terminology immediately.
While I stepped away from art for several years, I hadn't stopped working creatively. This piece is a pencil sketch of the main character from one of my projects that I started working on in 2011.Tell us what your goals as an artist are.
I want to learn to be able to be able to consistently draw, ink and color persons, objects and environments to a degree that I can create comics based on stories and universe I have created in writing. I eventually want to learn to draw, then fully create works on a digital drawing pad.How long have you been practicing this form of art?
Overall, I have been drawing since early elementary school, but I have only picked it up again in the last two weeks after several years of being away from it.Who are some artists or styles that you admire who you strive to be like in your own work?
