Hello everyone, a beginner artist here. I start this sketchbook with the purpose of recording my progress as I am making small steps toward a career change. Currently as I am writing this post, I am 23 years old, living in Germany and I just graduated university with a degree in communication design and marketing a few days ago. As a kid I fell in love with drawing and sketching and I did it for years until puberty and highschool came along. Eventually I stopped creating stuff at all.
recently I relit the fire inside of me for art and telling stories with
modelling, sculpting and of course sketching. In the beginning of ‘20 I started
teaching myself and I took classes casually here and there. Now that I
am out of school I decided to take the leap and “give the art a try again”, learning how
to create production-art. Next to my regular job I will follow a self
made curriculum in my spare time at home. I will at first mostly work on
courses and tutorials, therefore the beginning will not contain many
posts of my own projects for some time. I also haven't yet decided on
which path I want to specialize in the future. Animation, concept art,
3D art or … ? You should expect to see bites of everything because I
want to experiment with different things first.
As I already said this “sketchbook” serves me as a journal which motivates me to post something and keep on pushing, but feel free to leave feedback. I am always happy to read some comments, especially if they help me to improve. Keep yourself prepared for some beginnerish’ art in here. Sorry if my english isn’t that good, I am working on it.
Edit: I will mark every post with some keywords like "project" or "blogpost" just for the purpose of keeping things organised. I also thought about writing a small conclusion or something like that for each project-post about what I learned. I hope you are as excited as me about this journey of learning.
So far, much love and have fun!
