Hello all - came out of lurk mode after spying on you for a few days
I am really impressed by the info and heavy weight experience of you guys found here! Hope I can bring my small token into the fire.
Brief history of me: TRIED drawing as a teenager but my nerves gave up. So I quit. Looong time went by, and LAST MONTH I was activated!! Not sure why, changes in life/circumstances, I guess? Did a few amusing attempts to put something on paper, and then one of my friends told me about inktober.com. Wau! That gave me a serious kick. That was on 27th of October. Since that day I made one drawing every day till the 31st. Have to say, I was surprised myself what I could do without any training or idea what I was doing whatsoever. Now I'm thrilled getting into learning proper ways of doing things. Went to local library and got a stack of books I'm now inhaling.
Look forward into great time here.
