Re: Basic 101: Pre-Class Assignments and FAQs

Hello everyone! I'll start off with a little bit about me. I am 25, graduated from undergrad with a degree in biochemistry and am currently pursuing a doctorate degree in the medical sciences. Needless to say, I have used one part of my brain a lot more than the other and I want to change that. I have never done any sort of art and have never considered myself to be very creative. I want to tap into whatever creativity I may have and learn how to draw. I spend a lot of time outdoors and am interested in drawing what I see around me (landscapes, plants etc...)

Here is my attempt at an orchid on my desk.

Re: Basic 101: Pre-Class Assignments and FAQs

Hello, I am 18 and just want to be able to draw whatever comes to mind, what I see or feel in a sketchbook. I picked up Vilpuu's Drawing Manual and tried some gesture drawing and really like it. Maybe I'll end up drawing people.

Here's an apple-thing I made.

Re: Basic 101: Pre-Class Assignments and FAQs

I guess I have to use up this comment, so... I really like quick,strong, sketchy drwaing, just playing with the lines, that's what I did before I started to pick up drawing. So gesture drawing seemed natural to me,(even though I suck at it).

Sorry, I thought I had to post twice before posting a picture. Didn't know the picture worked.

For some bizarre reason, that limitation is only for images in the text, it does not apply for attachments .

Re: Basic 101: Pre-Class Assignments and FAQs

Hi everyone!

I'm Juliekris and I'm a new member here on WetCanvas. I love the photorealism style, portraiture, urban/landscape sketching, and watercolor painting. I want to improve my drawing skills so my painting skills will also improve. I posted a couple pictures to show my range as an artist. I even started a blog (link is in my signature) to record my progress!

Good morning all. Steve here. Have some experience. Not a lot. Primarily focused on pencil drawing right now. May move into color later. Here's my latest done from a youtube video tutorial.

Re: Basic 101: Pre-Class Assignments and FAQs

Recently found this thread and about to start the course. Thank you to everyone who set this idea up.
I am 61 years old without any art training. Now that I am in the latter years of my life I now hope that art will keep me going through retirement. When I get there.
Where I live there are no art clubs so I have to go it alone.
I have seen how much everyone here helps out those who are complete beginners.
