When I was younger I drew a lot but was discouraged after some time because the things that I drew my grade school shrink didn't like, so he had my parents squelch my drawing and after about 10 years I have missed drawing very much but have been hesitant (read procrastinating) to do any. So here I am after a long time of lurking, and being inspired by all the fantastic artists here I have decided to finally get myself motivated and start my old passion again. I have a long road ahead of me and I wanted to share that journey with you all if you'd have me My intention is to try to get out at least 3 sketches per week.
I started with a self portrait, didn't come out as badly as I thought it might but it looks like I need to work on a lot =P and then the hand, I was a bit more comfortable with the pencil at this point and things turned out a bit better. Ohh and I had only given myself 45 minutes per drawing due to time constraints.
