Thought I should finally be brave and start a sketch book instead of just browsing through old posts.
Used to draw a lot when I was younger and had not picked up a pencil until recently for over ten years. I used to be quite decent and it is very frustrating now not being able to draw as good as I used to. I just really want to dedicate myself to this again and see how far I can push myself. I have always had a pretty vivid imagination but never the technical skill to execute what was in my mind.
In a lot of ways this is a very exciting journey as I will be consciously making the effort to develop and hone my skills. I am really inspired by all the amazing work on this site but also by so much of what I see on the net. If I can produce one image that looks as stunning as the work of someone like Jason Chan by the time my fingers stop working then it will have been a life well spent. I know that’s a pretty high standard to set but even he had to start from some where so I like to believe anything is possible.
Looking forward to getting peoples feedback and being able to learn from it and get better as that what this is all about. I work full time so I can’t go back to art school as I would love to, but hope I can make decent progress at home working on my art in my spare time. I have already wasted ten years of potential progress and don’t want to waste anymore time.
Anyway enough talking looking forward to all the feedback Ill get and learning from and with you guys out there
