@MarkAlan74 What are you using for colors in that? Looks like markers? I'm looking to add some coloring medium to my practice, and I really like the way that pops well. Those copic markers? Looks nice.

38 and Learning to Art.
So here is the deal. I am 38 and haven't put a physical medium to paper in almost 20yrs. I have dabbled with computer graphics.. such as my little logo.. doing some basic UI mods for games, textures for minecraft.. etc. But it was all mostly based around me finding some tutorial, modifying it, and stumbling through till I got whatever little thing done. Nothing serious, more of a super mini'project.
Now, for the past 20ish yr's, I've always been into Art, appreciated it, and wondered... What if? What if I had applied myself. What if I had followed it through. I had gotten caught up in computer in the late 90's and coding it all fell away.
Well, here I am.. And I'm going to apply myself. See where I go. I am fortunate enough to be able to put in a solid 4-5hrs a day. Currently I am really just working on total basics. Lines, Circles, Perspective, boxes.. spheres etc.
Doing the some basics practice for the time, then I plan to move into SVS lessons and a few other things down the line. These 3 guys I love. Jake is probably one of my favorite artist, style wise, But I'd hope to one day do more illustrations and landscaping. I am not looking to go pro. But I am looking to produce, create... something. I've had regrets about not doing woodworking, or learning to weld... and well. I'm doing the Art, Dangit!
If you want to follow along with my progress, PM me, and I'll give you link. I post daily little updates for my own tracking to a wordpress.
Hope to learn about you all.
RE: Fun way to Finish...
@artwithashley I'd love a copy of this book when you get done... some little simple goofy that would be great for this project..
A horse walks into a bar... (already laughing at the image into my head)..'
I think stuff from this page should give you the inspiration to keep it going. Lots of good stuff here. I'm just now getting back into drawing, and hope to one day do this sort of thing. I'm working on super basic fundamentals though..like ..how to not draw a wobbly line, and make a proper ellipsis in perspective. Going to sign up for SVS in probably 6 months, when I can put stuff on paper.
RE: Episode 2 - Am I Too Old To Get Started?
Just want to say, I too am 38 getting back on this horse. I have not legitimately picked up a pencil to draw in almost 20yrs. I have fiddled with programs halfheartedly making logo's, custom UI for a few games... custom textures here and there. Things for little mods. Deep down I've always wondered.. what if I gave it it a real effort. I'm at a point in my life where I have 4-5hrs a day, I can devote to something, and the money to get the tools and lessons for the first time. So here we go. Fundamentals it is. Line, lines, circles and squares.
Jake your Youtube Videos are what got me to sign up and try this out. I don't know if I will ever do anything professionally, right now, I'm just grabbing the horse and holding on for the adventure to come.
