RE: Older than most to art
@susan-marks The fundamentals are important but it is also important to do things that are fun for you, IMO. Be creative with the skills you have and do projects of your own. The more you draw and learn, the more you'll see where you can improve. It is hard work to get better but it can also be fun! Mix things up. Learn the fundamentals and apply them to what you want to learn to draw. My biggest challenge is perspective, I think. I have a project that will involve a truck and a parking lot with cars so, I am trying to take what I learn in the perspective class and use it for my project. (when I'm not sidetracked by things like Inktober and monthly prompts, etc. ) BTW, I'm not new to art but I am 61 years old I am fortunate to have lots of time to be creative at this point in my life. Have fun!
RE: OCTOBER COMPETITION TOPIC: MISUNDERSTOOD MONSTER
Tessa, your work is always amazing. I'm sure you'll wipe us all out of the competition At least me
Misundertood Monster WIP
I decided to go ahead and try and finish something fo rthis months prompt. Plan on going outside to look at the colors around here in Nevada to use for rocks, etc. I was inspired by my surroundings here in Verdi, NV and the influence of my Monster Project so, I came up wth this idea while out for a walk around the Rv park one day. I can't decide if the back leg that isn;t being lifted should eb showing a littlw foot or not. That dog pose wa surprisingly difficult. probably off a bit but, I already inked it twice and......well, I suppose I could do it again. Or I can just hear your comments and take notes for the next time we're moving to our next rea on Monday so, I'm not sure how much time I'll spend on it. We'll see.
Also, would actually adding pee be too gross?

The other monster was just me playing around. I have decided it's made of rubber because of that wonky arm wrapped around the handle of the stringed instrument. Anyway, it's a fun challenge and keeping me busy for a while. I have five more on the docket so.....that's all.
