I've been an avid lurker (for the most part) here for years... and have always found inspiration amongst you incredibly talented artists here.
I've realized recently that I have begun to neglect who I really am.. who I've always been... and thats an artist. Life, work, and hobbies distract... excluding a recent sculpture I did... I havent finished a piece of art for well over a year... I havent touched my sketchbook in months. I begin to worry if the skills I once had have begun to stagnate.. I do not want to loose what I've always had.
Mind you, I am leagues behind in skill level that many of the artists here are.. altho I've been drawing longer than I've been walking (literally).. just not near as often as I should.
So I'm setting a few goals out for myself...
To sketch... EVERY DAY... and upload in the evenings here for crit.
To invest in a WACOM... I'm a graphic designer for gods sake... why I have been dodging transitioning my traditional art over to a digital medium is beyond me.
To do more than just pencil and ink. Color is my friend... not sure why I've always been so afraid of it.
Looking forward to finally taking part in (my favorite) sketchbook forums.
With regards and highest respect!
