My journey from newbie to (will add "awesome" in a few days)
I've been a programmer for a few years, and this is the direction I wanted to go ever since I was younger, but I've also noticed, thinking back, that every now and then I started drawing again. A while back I decided to at least pick up drawing as a hobby and now I'm trying to improve more seriously.
Went through the first 4 sections of the Natural way to draw, until the group and motion poses, but that needed more and more motivation, so I've decided to go for a more specific-goal idea, since specific goals are easier to be motivated towards. Arktulfy is the funny/creative part of me and she happens to be a werewolf, so the next month I'll try to progress towards an image of a werewolf in a fighting scene, then another month try to learn something about colours and digitally paint it, and then some day go for a friendly werewolf that's drawing.
For now my sketches seem flat to me, so gonna spend 30-60m for perspective each day, some more on Bridgman's life drawing (hoping for some 3D a-ha moment from the construction with cubes part) and every now and then drawing wolf faces, and maybe memory drawing of myself in the mirror. Also trying to figure out where to add in the russian-renaisannce tutorial on this site which seems great to me, and maybe anatomy studies.
The puppy drawing is the earliest good drawing I think I made, about half of year ago, then the tiger and lionesses about a month after that, then the werewolf a month ago in 3m when I got fed up with doing exercises and the seal was my go at using a viewfinder, which I didn't really like.
