Egyptian Sorceress – #300 / 10.11.17
This is my first picture with light and shadow in it, everything I’ve done before this has just been flat color. So yay for milestones!
I’ve been drawing for about a year now. I started late September/early October of last year. I honestly didn’t start getting serious until June/July of this year. My entire life I’ve been wanting to learn how to draw, I just finally decided I was going to commit and do it. I used to draw a lot as a kid in church and in middle school, mostly to stay awake during boring as hell sermons and lectures. It was mostly doodles and funny little comics-probably the most serious artistic effort I ever made was to copy the original box art of Counter-Strike. After middle school I pretty much stopped drawing for 10+ years, and here I am!
One year into teaching myself how to draw and I think I’m doing okay. I still think my art looks like shit, but its passable now in my eyes. I still have a lot of work to do, gotta learn anatomy, perspective, how to paint, etc… It’s okay though, I’m committed now to becoming an amazing artist. I have the rest of my life now to master it. 🙂
