Hey CA members who inspire me so much! I've been lurking for a short time now. I found this place through Matt Kohr from his website CtrlPaint. I've never been a part of a forum community before so please excuse my noobness.
I'm having a hard time finding time to draw, but I really want to push myself to. I had done a hundred day streak of drawing everyday starting around July last year and ending in October, posting on Deviant Art, and I saw such amazing improvement in just 100 days. I floored myself and showed myself that I can, I Can, I CAN!!!1!!1!one. I plan on making it into a video to use to motivate myself, and even others who would care to watch, whenever I feel deflated.
I found when I had made myself post to DA often, I was able to keep on a pace. The second I stopped posting there, my frequency fell off. So!! I'm hoping posting here will keep me accountable, at least that's what I hope. I also hope this sketchbook will one day be good enough to be a source of inspiration to other growing artists, as the current master artists are an inspiration to me.
Finally!!! I really, REALLY appreciate critiques! The more constructive the better!
To start off, here are the most recent sketches I have, to give you guys an idea of my starting point.
This below is the most recent one. I just did it today in about 20 minutes, after which I relived my 100 day streak, going through post by post on DA, and feeling the rollercoaster ride of what it was. Then finally comparing it to how easy it was to do this piece. Even though I know I still have a ways to go, it still feels good to see progress. ^^
On a side note, I've changed my Chinese name in my signature to something pronouncable! 多明 (duō míng) Feel free to call me that! Or Niquey if you prefer
