Hopefully, in time, I'll be able to build a portfolio that is worthy of a concept artist/illustrator, but for now I just need to learn how to draw. This thread will be my document of that learning process. I'll working at it double time to try to make up for the past five years in which i've made absolutely zero development as an artist. CA.org is basically going to be my art school over the next couple of years so I hope you will do me the honour of critiquing my work as I go.
