Yesterday Subscribed - Started "How to Draw Everything"
Hello! My name is Heather. I have been looking for a drawing and painting teaching and community for feedback for over a year. I looked into Paintable but they do digital and I need a combination of traditional and digital.
A little about me: 28 and graduated from an Art & Art History program in Canada and specialised in Print Making and Photography. I was interested in Art Therapy for the longest time, tied into my own personal health issue but made the commitment to work towards Illustration over a year ago.
I am very happy to have found this community of like minded individuals. I am a very creative person and find many outlets to be creative. Currently besides this, I am writing a story and designing a game.
I just started "How to Draw Everything" yesterday, this is my progress so far:
I hope these images come out. First time issues, lols.
NOTE: Skull is drawn from a current game I am playing "SpellSouls".

@heather-boyd Hi Heather, good luck with taking the "How to Draw Everything" course. Having a quick look at your sketches I would say to try and be a bit more loose with your initial sketch and try to aim at making long flowing lines rather than short strokes. Looking forward to see how you progress

Greetings from a Canadian
@gary-wilkinson Thank you. I normally sketch at first and my drawing style is very sketchy lols. But my understanding of contour lines from the exercises was not to sketch them out. I definitely struggle with long flowing lines. Any advice on working on this?
@rcartwright Thank you.
