I Want To Try Drawing Again

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 353 People

    I made a immature decision several years ago by

    choosing not to take any art classes at school following 6th grade, and now I kind of regret it these days. I've gotten interest in the comic/manga drawing style, but I'd honestly like to learn more than just that. I simply don't know where to start, because I'd like to...

    I Like To Draw Faces

    But I have to have a picture to copy from :( It can't be from my mind. I don't think. It takes my patience though!

    I doodle but i want to make better drawings. Hardly find time to do it. Finished 2:03 am. I shouldn't have wasted this hour and a half when I had actually come to the puter to study.

    Question: Does Anybody Do Stippling Without Sketching

    So I started back stippling this weekend and did it without sketching first and the drawing came out ok. I actually feel better doing this than sketching. Does anybody else not sketch before drawing?

    I Love Cartoons

    I used to draw cartoons. I started when I was about 4 or 5, I couldn't even write words in the word balloons, so I always had to translate what the characters were saying to my family. At least until I learned to read and write. My brother and I both did a lot of illustrating...

    I Fail.

    I cannot draw anything that is living or supposedly living. I can sketch inanimate objects fairly decently, but not awesomely. I want to work at drawing again, but I have little time to do so :P

    I draw every once in a while but do not have the talent for it and do not want to improve all that much either because I focus on my writing talents.

    I draw to express myself. The reason I like to do pencil drawings the most is because all you need is paper and pencil. You can draw practically anywhere.
