Hello denizens of CA
I'm Luther, recently turned 23, male from England, London.
stop me if this sounds like a song already sung - I've known of this site for a while, but never had the desire to join up until recently.
I've been drawing everyday desperate to improve my freehand drawing since the beginning of this year but my efforts have continuously been rising.
admittedly, I started off quite lazy, but since June, I have noticed I have been getting more intense as if I am getting consumed. my life as I once
knew it as is definitely gone.
my method of main improvement is repetition of something i like to call memory recall.
it is just simply a matter of studying a subject and attempting to recall the general details immediately from imagination, after which i then experiment with said subject in different situations.
Before, at the beginning of this year, I was concerned with improving my digital painting so set off trying to learn colour and how different light situations affects it.
I use to do a lot of digital paint studies, but nowadays I do not even touch digipaint as much as I use to.
I am first set on competency with the pencil and rendering scenes from imagination professionally. once I am happy in my skill with the pencil (and that wont be until a very longggggg time) I will then concern myself with colour. every now and then I do get the urge to paint though..and get flabbergasted at how much I truly suck in the process!!
I have a lot to learn but will be totally appreciative of any hints I get from here, and hope to inspire with my effort and make new friends along the way
The subjects of immediate study at the moment is trees and forested scenes (or how about just saying nature in general you fool!), armour (modern and recent), human anatomy, animal anatomy, clothing/fashion, urban and city design/architecture, vehicles and weapons(modern and recent)
so here are some crap I have done recently, the digital stuff at the bottom are just speed paints. they weren't intended as finished pieces.
I will try to update every couple of days, time permitted, but please note CA Image attachment is totally not time friendly, time is something i do not have in abundance to waste, so it will probably be in weekly dumps on the weekends where I deliberately slow my self down.
good luck to all who are in the same boat trying to improve don't give up!!
p.s. please forgive my writing in the images and the quality of the drawings itself , it is scribbling that was only intended for my eyes. xP
