Hello from a nervous newb :)



  • Hi Maria! I find it so enjoyable to learn and do my own artwork, because I don't put any pressure on myself to hurry or do anything that I don't want to do, unlike most of our 8-5 jobs. I only found this site a few months ago myself and I'm learning so much! I hope you find that to be the case for you too!



  • @Maria-Carmina Hi Maria! Welcome to a fellow serial dabbler. I've been all over the map as far as hobbies go, so I understand where you're coming from. Sounds like you're committed to working at your art every day - which is definitely the first step towards getting good at something! Can't wait to see what you can achieve!



  • Welcome! I felt the same when i first started here. I have learned a lot and found out a lot about myself as well. If you are serious about doing art this is the place to be! If you do it as a hobby this is also the place to be πŸ˜ƒ



  • Hi Maria! I am a newbie here as well. This is actually my first post. πŸ˜… It’s nice to meet you! I’m looking forward to getting more involved in the forums and making the best use of the classes that I can. I decided to start with How to Draw Everything and I’m only halfway through. I will probably be slower to progress than I would like since I will be trying to work around a full time job and young kids, but I love the flexibility of these courses so I will be able to fit them in whenever I can!

    Best of luck to you in your studies!



  • Welcome. This forum is a very encouraging and friendly place. I have seen fellow artists at all levels and all sorts of styles are able to help each other in many different ways in this forum. I learned so much from this forum, about making art, about the illustration business, and also how to think and talk about art.



  • Welcome! ❀



  • Welcome πŸ™‚ This is an awesome forum to share ideas and get advice and no hate or bulls@#t. I love it!

    Biggest thing I learned in my own journey is to only compare yourself to one person, your past self. Even if you left art and making things for a while the skills you had don't leave they just need a kickstart and the curriculum is great for that and the advice and support on this forum is awesome.



  • Hi Maria. No need to feel intimidated as the folk on this forum are very friendly and welcoming!

    @Maria-Carmina welcome to the forums!



  • Thanks everyone for the warm welcome and words of encouragement 😊
    I have just finished my first course and am about to start the next one.
    Hope you all have a lovely day!
