Hi gang, i have come to the point where i realise to be able to paint i need to embark on a study to draw. I was walking past my favorite book shop and saw Peter Grays "The Complete Guide to Drawing & Illustration" in the window for $10 off the RRP bringing it down to $14.99. I'm now half way through and loving it, the book is organised in a course format, but is suitable for reference as well, i have been reading it before bed as i find that's when i absorb information best, and if i read an instruction manual through once before attempting the lessons, i find i don't feel so much like i'm cramming information into my head all at once lol.
Anyways my intention for this thread is to share with you all my journey into the scary wide world of sketching, i will update this thread occasionally with my current sketches both real media and sketched with ArtRage, i felt that it might be helpful for some and refreshing for others to see my progress, in any case i do hope you enjoy laughing at my feeble attempts, and enjoy the rewards of study and dedication with me as my skills advance.
I hope to have my 1st sketch up over the next few days.
The link to the book is here for those interested "The Complete Guide to Drawing & Illustration"
