I’m 16 years old and I’ve been practicing drawing for the past 2 years,
but more seriously for the past year and a half everyday. Right now, my
main focus is learning anatomy, perspective, form, and taking my first
steps into digital and on the side I’m trying to build up my visual
library (because it’s really an empty bookshelf) and attempting to draw
from imagination when I can. I want to be in the art industry in the future, so critiques and comments are welcomed : ).
I posted on conceptart for the past 2 years almost everyday , but
it’s been down for the past two weeks and I doubt it coming back : (.
I’ll try to post whenever I can on this forum though like I did with ca :
). Also, I don't think I really belong here because everyone on this
forum seems to be at a higher skill level and works with 3d stuff lol.
Here’s some progress shots from the past two years:
May/June 2017 - just dove right in and started to draw
2017 - did my first istebrak 14 day challenge (day 1 and 14), but
didn't take drawing seriously because I was too busy playing league
September 2017 - A one trick portrait front view pony, still wasn't drawing a lot
2018 - I started take drawing more seriously and started to post
everything I did on the concept art forum. Also started to study anatomy
from proko. The portrait is a fanart of Kuroo from Haikyuu for a
June 2018 - redraw of the first picture and two different versions of a friend’s character.
2018 - An attempt at a 3/4 view, before and around this time I
was doing the 250 box challenge thing and straight lines, pretty much
wasted most of my drawing time learning almost nothing that year..
boring and disappointing
2018 - Redraw of my Zoro portrait from last year. I was really proud of
this on :, ). I think this is around the time where I got even more
invested into art. Started to draw everyday and not just lines and
2018 - Did a self portrait from the mirror for self portrait day. This
took so long over a few days and it's very inaccurate : ^).
2019 - I started to pay a little more attention to form and I started
to learn how to learn better. Also, I think I picked up Scott
Robertson's How to Draw book around here.
2019 - Started to be a creep and bring a small sketchbook wherever I
even, even school. Started to draw moving people the best I could in
under 10 minutes. The sword girl is a Mulan fanart for a weekly topic
sketch thing. Also did another self portrait and I only took one hour
and it's much better.
2019 - A few more sketches of other students and I was picking up the
pace with perspective drawing from the book. I didn't really make much
2018 - more sketches of people before I stay home for summer break and a
birthday present for a friend. It was from a scene from a show called
Killing Eve. Couldn't find the ref for it online
. I made a schedule
for myself to follow for my whole, so I could get the most out of my day
during the summer : ^).
2019 - Tried to apply everything I learned from Scott Robertson's book
and tried to make a spaceship, but I don't know how to draw a spaceship.
Also did a fanart of Tanjiro from Demon Slayer and started doing some
digital art. I made a schedule for myself to follow, so I could get the
most out of my day : ^).
Refs and thinking process:
few things from last 3 days or so: Started learning digital art from a
site called ctrl paint and a few studies from my computer. Also started
to study Loomis's figure drawing book a few week ago.
been studying knights a bit recently and decided to design one : ) and I
also tried to line art it, but it went terribly and was taking way too
long so I quit. I can draw circles, ellipses, and straight lines just
both on both media : ^) but cant get the lines I want on digital. I
should draw with my shoulder more regularly.
was from today. It was an assignment from ctrl paint and goal was to
try sketching flowers in two different ways. At first it took a long
time and didn't go well, but as I went on it looked better and I was
Gonna start posting daily tomorrow, hope you guys enjoy my stuff : ).
