Interests
Or more like, I'm back into drawing again. I've mostly been drawing stuff on loose leaf paper and in my sketchbook rather than doing digital works as of late, because I realize that there is a lot of stuff that I need to be working on. I'm thinking that doing fifteen gesture drawings a day and some serious anatomical study would be a good start to my drawing regiment, though I know that really serious artists can work six hours or more. I'm starting off small, though. I would love to be able to draw poses from memory after doing a bunch of gesture drawings and getting the gesture part down right--because it starts in the gesture. I would love to become a better artist and I'm open to critiques and such, though I also realize that my drawing is not up to par, considering my age. When I was younger, I would draw constantly, though when I had a bad art teacher around age eleven, I quit drawing as frequently and I just feel that my drawings would be so much better today if I dedicated myself more to art. But that is a story that is not relevant right now. What matters now is the present.

You can see some pictures in my gallery. I feel like my drawing has degenerated somewhat because once again, I've been slacking off in drawing and not up-keeping my skills. I know that consistent practice is important, though sometimes I get discouraged with myself because my drawing is not at the level that I would like for it to be. Even though rationally, I know all the great artists that I see had a lot of time and dedication into their craft, I still beat myself up over my lack of knowledge of well...everything. LOL. I need to work on everything, from anatomy to lighting to perspective and all the other things in between. I also seem to struggle with drawing ideas for characters and stuff because I can't think of original poses for the characters to be in. That's why I'm practicing gesture drawing, to hopefully be able to create more original poses.

I guess the point of this journal is to get feedback on my work and telling me what to improve upon. I know that drawing from life is really important, and I've been doing some simple stuff like drawing coffee mugs in my sketchbook. I'm trying to learn to draw from observation, though that's pretty tricky, though I'm going to keep at it in order to improve. I guess I also want advice and encouragement to keep at this, because I would love to be able to pursue a career in drawing or writing, because i feel that's the only skills that I have. I would love to correspond with my fellow artists and improve myself along the way, so feel free to drop a comment on this journal and give your opinion if you want : )

I had a rough day in the chats. Majority of it was their fault, a bit of it was my fault. But thankfully I learned my lesson. Sorry for the scare, also sorry we don't get to talk more often.

I know, the anime is cool too, just go to animeultima. So what do you hope to get during the holidays? I'm hoping to get a 3ds, the New Stephan Colbert Book, and either Devil Survivor 2 or Tales of the Abyss.
