I Want To Try Drawing Again

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 381 People

    I used to draw a couple years ago

    but life completely derailed my drive. I'm currently a Graphic Designer (mostly doing print signage and the occasional website) but would love to be an illustrator someday. I took figure drawing in college but I can hardly take a pencil to paper without blanking out and...

    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

    When I was visiting my mother last week.

    She had cleaned out the attic and gave me a drawing I had done when I was 8 or 9 years old. OMG... I didn't know I knew how to draw! I am still amazed how well I did...maybe I can do it again!

    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 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 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...
