Now, while today I took a break from focused artwork, I still made sure to draw something. I decided to draw up a hand - because I am horrible at drawing hands and need practice - and an eye and a female body. Why? Because I wanted to lay out some tips that I've learned over time from drawing, hopefully to help other aspiring artists (or veterans) learn a couple things that maybe they'd missed, or perhaps they can even school me on something! So, here's the first edition of my art tips.
Keep Movign Forward Self-ChallengeInspired by Monty's work ethic, I'm decided to undertake a challenge to better improve my Art, and hopefully at the same time gain a bit of exposure, because as an artist that's also a goal of mine, and I'm going to use some lucky RT Community members to do it.
Without a set date, I will take the 12 members who appear in my friends list right now and draw a black and white sketch for them, at no charge, as a gift and I will draw something out of their galleries to use as a base for this.
The people I will be drawing, because they were lucky to appear on my page as I type this are:
These 12 will at some point in the near future get a random picture given to them in a random order, and then I will move on and do another 12 after that. If any artists who get tagged want to take on the challenge and pass it forward, maybe we can start a trend of getting people motivated to follow their aspirations.
If you have something you want to do and never had the time or energy or motivation to do it, stop wasting your own time and get to it. If not for yourself, because Monty would have ninja-kicked your ass for not doing it.
