So I've been struggling the past few months to motivate myself to start a drawing habit. Well more than that, I've wanted to learn to draw for as long as I can remember, but I've always set up so many road blocks for myself. I bought a tablet years ago and barely used it, I bought a newer, fancier tablet earlier this year and again have barely used it. But I think I finally got a plan to get me started. (I think most normal people simply put art on a page, but I'm not normal people!) 78 posts and 53 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
Here's the plan, we're starting with good ol pencil, pen, and paper. I think trying to learn how to use the tablet itself has been blocking me. We can do digital later. I want to use pen for most of it so I can't get thrown off by my perfectionism. Once a line is down, no more fixing it. And this is the important part, I have a hard time figuring out what to draw so I've decided to take that road block out of the way by going through all the Pokémon from number 1 all the way through 800+ whatever! I don't even like Pokémon that much, but lots of them are cute and there's a lot of variety to work with. I bought a stack of paper, and the plan is to find reference images and start practicing construction, composition, shapes, etc. I'm not gonna worry about making original poses (yet), I can copy what I find online so long as I'm not tracing it. I want to be able up construct the same image from scratch using basic shapes and such. I'll get more used to taking a character and creating something completely new with practice.
So, that's the plan, and I've already gotten started. I drew some bulbasaur, ivysaur, and started on venusaur (dude's got so many details!). I'll be using this thread to catalog the art journey, and keep myself accountable to doing the drawings. Feel free to drop in and say hi, comment on the art stuff, or whatever. I'd be happy to take suggestions and draw for people too, might as well, if you don't mind the quality being what it is!
