Hello from a former art student who goes beginner again
I'm so glad I found SVS learn through the podcast! I just signed up to the forum too and it's nice to see how many of you guys are getting better and better at art, it's very inspiring.
I graduated from an art school many years ago (new media/photography), then went to work on movies - which was way less creative than it sounded. A couple of years ago I decided to pick up the brush and get into painting. I spent a lot of time drawing from life, then started painting with watercolors using reference photos.
I focused so much on improving my drawing skills that I neglected the design aspect of picture making. My goal is to be better at design, improve my painting skills and be able to create my own art not just 'copy' reference images.
Right now I'm doing the Creative Composition course and I wish I could time travel back to my student years and listen to it back then. So good, so useful!
Here are some of my sketches:
I did a #100headchallenge IG thing last year.
I love drawing animals.
I was in the middle of the Creative Composition course when I painted this. I think I will find many things to be changed when I finish the course...
I would appreciate any recommendations about what course to take next. Thank you!
RE: Feedback on my Website?
@Kasey-Snow I agree with the idea of grouping together the illustrations, your style and characters are nicely consistent to allow that. Another thing I would do is that I might look into the various fonts on the website and maybe just use 2 different ones instead of 4.
Good luck with your applications!
