Not sure if this is the right place for this, or if it's been done. I'm inspired by Lung Bugs few pictures in his DS that showed where he was 2 years ago, and 7 years ago, art wise. Also, MindCandyMan has a great DS showing his progression, which started 6 months after I did. I'm also curious how alot of amazing artists on here started out. So, I'll start by posting where I was 2 years ago this month (note the dates), and one page scanned out of my current sketchbook, and a quick 5 minute doodle page while I was scanning (also, you can check my website if you haven't, but I haven't updated since Dec). But I'd rather see where other people began on thier artistic journey.
I hope some of you other artists will do the same. To be honest, there are horrible drawing days where I think to myself "Dan Milligan drew like crap once"...but now I wanna see the proof!
My very first attempt at duplicating reality. All but the face was a genuine attempt.
The next day I went to the metro tunnel where people wait for the bus. I sat across the tunnel and tried to draw them. I still do it, its a great exercise I think.
Here is a recent page from the metro tunnel last week.
And some quick sketches while waiting for the scanning...
Let's see where you've been!
