I made a post before where I said I would be drawing something everyday. So have I been doing it? Well yes…yes I have. 🙂 I haven’t been posting them up because I didn’t wanna spam you peeps with my daily drawings. 😛
Fun fact, before I decided to take up that challenge I had actually not drawn in like years. Maybe I did a doodle here and there but that would have been at most. I know that’s bad. 😦 I was never an artist anyway so don’t worry the world didn’t loose out on anything. haha. At most I was decent at copying pictures I saw online. When it came to creating original stuff I straight up sucked.
Lately though I have been wanting to start taking drawing more serious. To start I did what I knew best. I looked for pics I liked online and tried to recreate them. This time however, I didn’t focus on making them as exact as possible. I’m slowly getting more comfortable in incorporating my own ideas. I have been progressing slowly but steadily. My ultimate goal is to draw completely original stuff that doesn’t suck. 😛 That’s not too much to ask is it?
I have noticed that 3 major things I will need to really work on are:
1)Shadows: even when I was copying a picture shadows gave me a problem. Imagine how hard it is when I try to create something original. I don’t even know where to begin!
2)Hands: Why can’t I get hands right? Right now I have pages full of drawings of nothing but hands. lol I will get them right one day.
3.)Faces: I wanna get used to drawing different facial expressions. Sometimes when I draw faces the character seems dead inside or they look off. :,( I think its mostly in the eyes.
There are more things I need to work on but those are my top priority. I kinda regret never taking an art class or really studying about art. Learning proper techniques shoulda really been the first thing I did. Now I gotta correct bad habits and catch up on all those art studies I never did. I will remain positive and work hard to achieve my goal. Wish me luck peeps. ^_^
