I am pretty much a beginner in drawing and below is a snap shot of my journey from some time in 2012.
Below is one example of my bads from 2015.
In 2012, I decide to spend more time on drawing as a hobby.
I start off reading books on drawings and draw images that attract me. One method caught my attention, to draw 500 hands.
Below is #16 & #17 hands. Unable to find my #1 hand but i remember it is rather crappy.
I continued practising drawing my hands. #50 below. I think i stopped at close to #100 hands, so did not accomplished my goals.
The training seems to help and I try to do more challenging subjects and below remains my favorite. It got a nice coarse feel.
I continue to practise and upload to the sketchbooks threads (a number of bads are uploaded as well, I learn more from doing wrong.
There are so much for me to learn and explore. It has its frustration moments but periods of joys when you are in the state of flow where the act of doing is a reward itself.
