Update: Currently in Community College. Artistic classes are Photoshop and Drawing I. Current semester ends midway through December. Next semester I will for sure take Drawing II but due to financial insecurity I am unsure if going full time is possible.
Sketchbook started July of 2011 before formal classes.
As you have probably would have guessed from the title of this sketchbook, I am far, far, far, far (get the picture yet?) away from being the best or even good. Just scroll down to skip all the backround info crap.
I used to sketch all through school starting at age 11 when I entered middle school when I should have been doing my school work. I was the fat chick of the school (every school needs one eyyy?)and a weirdo and I was bullied constantly so drawing became an escape from everything around me while I was stuck in it. Of course my grades were never what they used to be. I'd go home and play video game all day instead of doing any school work. The bullying got worse after my family moved when I was 14, because I had to leave home and all my friends that I grew up with behind, and just never did make new ones at school. So it was literally go to school>draw>go home>play all day>sleep>repeat.
I dropped out as soon as I was old enough only ever having gone to highschool for a semester.
I'm 21 now, and really, really rusty because I haven't done much since dropping out. I am enrolled in my local community college now. I found school to be fantastic when you aren't getting teased non stop and earn the good grades I did back in elementary school.
I am going to begin taking art classes there this coming semester to pick up on everything I missed not going to school. I have A LOT to learn, and the thing is- I want to be good enough to go to art school for game design and programming. I'm guessing more on the programming side if I can't improve my art enough.
I am not in school until August so what is here is just what I've been practicing on my own time. I need practice on just about anything, so methods of practicing will be helpful. Anatomy is my biggest hill to climb.
All that said, I will value all tips, because at my skill level I'm sure all the wonderful artist here have so many to give me.
Lastly, my scanner is an absolute p.o.s. so please forgive me if some images look a bit fuzzy in the future.
