  Hello everyone and thank you for having me!
Posted by: loradraws - 02-27-2024, 05:13 AM - Forum: INTRODUCE YOURSELF - No Replies

Hi, my name is Lora and I'm just starting out as an artist. I have a daytime job in marketing, but I'm looking to switch to full-time creating and making a living doing what I love. My biggest passions are sketching plants and flowers with a pencil and creating phantasy character illustrations on my iPad. For me, art is a way to express my emotions that won't see the light without creativity and also the best meditation that soothes me.

  Hello there
Posted by: Xiliuv - 02-26-2024, 08:32 PM - Forum: INTRODUCE YOURSELF - No Replies

Well I actually knew of this forum many years ago (around 10?) but didn't registered because I was still a noob and was embarrassed of my art plus I felt very easily intimidated by other artists (I was 18 y/o that's why).

I'm a selftaught artist and love character design. The only thing I'm interested in painting is everything related to my OCs and a novel I've been trying to finish for more time that I'm willing to admit.

I love forums way more than Discord so that's why I remembered this forum existed and I'm glad to finally make an account here! :)

Question Greetings From Somewhere
Posted by: ASRylee - 02-25-2024, 12:10 PM - Forum: INTRODUCE YOURSELF - Replies (1)


My name's Rylee, and for my new year's resolution last year when I turned 20, I realised I was undisciplined, clumsy, impatient, and didn't really have any hobbies so I thought learning to draw was the perfect challenge. I've tried to get into drawing in my life many times, but for the reasons mentioned above, it never really stuck until I eased myself into it through digital art. Truthfully, I still don't accept the 'mantle' that is the artist label, but hopefully I can live up to it one day.

My long term milestone is to eventually be good enough that someone would commission me to draw something for them. 
Naturally, there are a bunch of philosophical quandaries about the value of art and what good art is, but as I'm the equivalent of a molerat, I have to compromise with monetary value instead. 

When it comes to art, I want to focus on illustration and character design. I'm mainly here as a means of driving myself to draw more because I do a lot of thinking about drawing instead of drawing, which is a bad habit I need to kick.

In general, I'm just a university student studying English, and I occupy my time by gaming and studying.

  Well Hello
Posted by: Strelok_2012 - 02-13-2024, 01:03 PM - Forum: INTRODUCE YOURSELF - Replies (2)

Well hello, I'm Strelok_2012.

I found this forum through reddit and I can see that its somewhat active and has that old-style forum aesthetic. I'll making a sketchbook thread where I post all my practice and non-practice pictures.

I haven't been drawing for very long nor have I had a lot of years of practice, and my practice is very limited as I tend to be quite busy. I'm currently interested in figure drawing and I'm trying to create a race of fictional humanoids.

I hope that folks here will appreciate my art journey and perhaps offer some advice.

I'll see you in my sketchbook thread.

hello!! *waves*!! im schnee soupicus LMDXIII. I’m a student and hobbyist artist/animator.
i love drawing and wanna improve my skills, hence, here i am!! 

I draw mostly cartoony, fandom works (COUGH COUGH OBJECT SHOWS), but I also do realism from time to time. i enjoy experimenting a lot so my work will vary massively.

due to focusing on school studies I wont have any posting schedule/goal. just gonna draw whenever i want. 

The skills I wish to work on the most are: 
stylisation, shape/anatomy, typography, lineart, posing, character design and rendering. 
I also want to practice replicating styles/aesthetics. 

thats all I got to say. hope to have a good time improving my skills w/ yalls!! 

attached are a series of doodles. quite proud of the first one ^^)/

  trying to find my path
Posted by: Htinlin@k - 02-01-2024, 11:44 PM - Forum: INTRODUCE YOURSELF - Replies (2)

Hi,im htinlinn arkar 22 from Myanmar(burmese).i love art since i was a kid,i didn't do much or serious about it.i started serious about 3 years ago but it was not a dedicated or focus one.i draw alot but most of the time i was drawing gibberish random things without focus.i tried learning from books or tutorials but i find its difficult to keep up.i m not good at socializing and very hard to talk or ask someone. And i feel like kinda lost the way.i m 22 and i figured i really need to be serious for my life.i can't depend on my family all the time.

My art goal also is not sure.i like anatomy.i don't know which path to take.i don't know how art communities or jobs work.

That's why i seek for a community or art friends.i gonna try my best to be active here and post daily in sketckbook.looking forward for your help.feel free to critque or give feedbacks.

Additionally i regularly post on facebook.My current main inspiration is dave rapoza.(i found this forum from his streams).Thanks and sorry for my English.

here is some of my artwork.

Star Hello!
Posted by: Herzig - 01-06-2024, 05:40 AM - Forum: INTRODUCE YOURSELF - Replies (1)

Hiya! My online handle is Herzig but you can call me herz . Ive been drawing since highschool but only felt like taking it seriously as a hobby now that im a typical working adult. Btw english is not my 1st language so advance sorry for my grammar etc!

I dont really have any goals to be a professional or to make money out of art so ive been rather lax in learning. However i dont know what sparked it but id like to learn and improve on my work starting this year just to have goals to work towards haha.

As mentioned i never really went and learned the fundamentals properly so im pretty sure i should start there to begin with but if i have to mention a focus/goal, i guess it would be compositions and background for now! Tho i did get some critique online that my colors are muddy and the lights are wonky so theres that too hnn

Il post a sketchbook thread afterwork but for now il just attach some stuff i did this year  Happy

heres the sketchbook link : https://crimsondaggers.com/forum/thread-9559.html

Smile Hello
Posted by: janieT - 01-03-2024, 07:27 AM - Forum: INTRODUCE YOURSELF - Replies (4)

Signed on a couple days ago and thought I introduce myself. I have been drawing on and off my whole life, it is something that gives me peace and a way to escape. I just stared getting more serious about art a year ago and want to start learning even more.  I like illustrative drawing  and cartoon characters. Was told on another platform that this was a good art forum so here I am. I work with pencils, markers, and water soluble wax pastels. I want to start learning how to paint and work with Gouache. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.  Hope to talk to some of you soon.  Happy
