I wanted to learn illustration in college, used to be good at drawing things from my imagination like combine different elements of animals and put them together like half monkey half eagle and things like that. Kind if lost it now and want to one day do that again but I take too long gaps in doing anything so have to learn to do it all over again. I'd improve more if I just did it all the time.
dropped out of school after a few years and got rejected at university of fine arts. but right now, i'm glad all went the way it did.. as this way i learned a lot more, just by myself — and that way it got stuck.
also: this way i did't just adapt the style of my teachers..
your creations sound awesome, and i look forward to see some of them when you are ready.
and yes, you are right again, practice is a great deal of improving drawing skills. but reading, listening, watching, thinking about it and finally dream of these things i find much more fascinating and also helping.
thanks for the convo. gotta prepare myself now to leave.
enjoy your weekend, mate.
Oh I will, right now I'm teaching myself shading, shadows, the human form and lighting.
I've never really been a fan of doing colours but I like digital art so trying to improve that and then more from my imagination.
I figured if I try to improve on one thing and focus on it and just make it the best I can then doing other things will seem easier
You have a good weekend too
thank you again, and yes.. this is a bright path to take.
i've been drawing with pencils my entire leif and just started with colours a few years back.
it all began quite monochromatic and dark, but it's getting prettier everyday. ♥
thank you. it was the second try to create a supervillain/hero for school.
and i'm always siding with the antagonists.
used the third one tho, a little more sinister. not sure if i can find that one tho..
