Hello everyone This thread is going stale -- time I edit it!
My name is Xinlin, and my main goal in life is to draw like a pro. My other goal is to be an illustrator, and I'm training myself to be versatile in both traditional and digital medium. As of hand, I'm crap at everything and versatile in nothing, which just means I have to work harder. I'm from Asia, in a country where the art scene is just starting to develop. I have many friends who like to draw, but fewer than few are intent on improving themselves. My dream is to go to an art school, but signing up as an international student is way beyond my financial means.
HENCE. Because there are too few people in RL who can give me serious crits on my work, I've decided to start my own CA sketchbook to document my progress. You guys do amazing stuff, and are INSANELY hardworking, and I'm really humbled (as well as spurred on) by the awesome artists to be found on this site.
So here's the deal:
I will paint one picture a day - no matter how busy I am. RL right now is a killer, and this is the only way to pace myself, so that I will not tomorrow forget the new things I learnt today.
If I miss a day, I will make it up the next day. And so on.
Like everyone else on the site, I am keen on improving myself, so if anyone could crit my works that would be so awesome. I will worship you on an altar, shower you with grapes, PROMISE.
