Greetings from a New Student
Hello! I've recently started taking some of the classes here at SVSLearn, as part of my self-education resources and goals. I've been drawing since junior high but have a problem with practicing consistently. My lack of practice and not really stretching has left me at a technical and creative plateau. You can see my stuff at my Tumblr.
My goal is to learn and practice as much as I can through focused study over the next year (and continued practice over beyond). My interests lie in storytelling, so you'll probably see sequential art and illustrations with a focus on telling a story.
I just finished watching Jake Parker's How to Ink course, and am working on the exercises. I'm figuring out my next course.
I look forward to posting stuff here, sharing and getting feedback, and getting better.
Hi Asatira! Welcome to the forum :-) (I am very new here too). It's great to have somewhere to chat and share with others who love storytelling. Looking forward to seeing your work.
Welcome to the forum!
Hello and welcome.
I look forward seeing your work and hope we can all help each other move forward with our art.
See you on the forums ~Nightseye
Thank you for the warm greetings! I'll do my best to be active and helpful.
@Asatira Glad to have you join :) I watched Jake's Inking course as well. It got me inspired. And then I realized how much farther I have to go, lol.
@shinjifujioka: I agree. I've drawn a lot, but haven't really considered how to take advantage of the inking medium. I forgot how many textures you can achieve.
Practising consistently is a problem I had too, until last year. Before I started to work at an office, I could skip days without drawing a single line and be okay with it. As I started to work 40h/week drawing, I can't think of a single day without drawing.
It's just a matter of developing the right habit and mindset and in no time it will come as naturally as workout for some people. :)
And I'm pretty sure that with the people around here always eager to help and discuss, you'll be motivated to keep moving on!
