Once upon a time I loved comics and loved to try and draw comics, I still love comics but it turned out I was better at writing than art and in my younger days (between 16 & 18) I grew impatient and abandoned the pencil.
Since then I've run a writing group, had a few things in anthology and taken up colours and letters to some success but occasionally whilst in a meeting I still doodle with a biro...
I'm now 30 years old so before Christmas I resolved to pick up the pencil again and with the patience that age brings attempt to teach myself to draw.
I brought some pencils and some books and watched some videos on youtube and browsed many sketchbooks on here and finally plucked up the courage to make the first marks in my sketchbook.
This is the picture I drew whilst watching the darts on TV the other night. The darts player is Scott 'Scotty2Hotty' Waites :
Thanks for your time.

Last night I began reading two of the Loomis books, 'Fun with a Pencil' and 'Drawing the Head and Hands' and began to work through them. Here's a page of sketches, the lamp in the corner was next to me so I decided to draw it.
Sorry for the photo taken with my phone.
For some reason I seem to prefer using a box when drawing a head or face... seems easier to proportion than the Loomis ball way. Will keep at it though.
Had another sketching session whilst watching Dredd last night, first image was meant to be cartoony/charicature-ish but tuned out more Beano-ish.
This image I began sketching from a still image of Judge Anderson that I found on google images.
The original image
Another sketch session last night, drew a boring batman or two, my hands and attempted to quickly sketch my cat but he kept moving.
