Subject title: Introduce yourself!!

Greetings All,

I've been drawing on and off since i was a kid but have never pursued it to my fullest potential. I blame myself for my tendency to switch between the latest and greatest techniques and not sticking around long enough to actually absorb the skills. I'm hoping to build discipline and consistency by starting up a Bargue course for 3 months in my new sketchbook. Along the way i hope to make new friends here and share art wisdoms,

Hey guys. I've actually registered here a long time ago, but I've fallen a bit out of habit with drawing, so I've stuck to lurking every once in a while. Hopefully I can change that pretty soon.
I've drawn non-seriously for a majority of my life, and only decided to try to draw seriously off and on since high school (which was 4 years ago so make of that what you will). Just hoping actually posting here will get me to be more proactive about art things.
I guess some other things about me are that I have an unhealthy obsession with the Internet and video games, and I'm a indecisive person by nature.

Hello everybody, Oblongly here. I've been drawing for as long as I can remember, but I just started taking it seriously the beginning of October this year. Eventually I would like to work as an illustrator/animator because I love bringing scenes and characters to life. I look forward to growing with you all and becoming a part of this community. :D

Hi there,

I started to have interest with drawing when I was in kindergarden and anime fueled me to keep on going.

But things changed after that and recently learned that my art isn't following the fundamentals. I just started coming to YouTube and stumbled upon sycra's videos for about a week ago. I am like my young self again excited for new change. It was hard to until I accept the change wholeheartedly. I am right now excited what arts and style I can do in the future.

Hi everyone,

I'm a bit of a loner artist and don't know many who share the same passion, so I hope to make some friends here :)

Hello everyone, I'm an animator and I also like to draw. Recently realized I need to really study anatomy to take my animation to the next level. Glad to be here!

Hey everyone. Happy new year!
As for introductions, I've drawn for as long as I can remember, but I've never been serious about it. I'm not satisfied with the amount of effort I put into it, so I want to get better! Which is why I'm here. I hope I'll find the courage to start using this forum, considering I've been a member for months and haven't written a single post before...

I'm also kind of obsessed with anime at the moment, but I can't draw that style at all. I usually stick with fantasy creatures where it's more difficult to mess up the anatomy (since there isn't any real-life thing to compare with).

Hello everyone.

I've been thinking for a while that I need to get some feedback and critique. I'm happiest drawing caroony critters and people but I've been challenging myself more with reference and portrait stuff. Hi.
My sketchbook. Feedback and crits welcome.

My name is Massimiliano Camassa and I especially like to draw people. I like to tell stories with my drawings and I'm excited to use this forum more regularly in the near future. I'm currently a hobbyist, but have an interest in becoming a professional, I just have to start practising and I think this forum will be a good motivation to keep going.

Hi, I'm BBstudies, art has always been my passion but unfortunately I quit on it for 6 years during hard times. During that time, I used to create these "bedstories" in my head before going sleep in order to confort me, but in the end stress just hit me and I ended up developing Obsessive Disorder and having some problems with nightmares. After things got better, I decided I really wanted to draw these stories and maybe share them with people that need some confort too, so I'm now back to art and my goal is to draw a webcomic with a mix of action and personal plot.

I have never shared my art before, so this is a new experience to me. I ended up creating a DeviantArt account but it took me 6 months to have the courage to share anything. I'm glad to say that after I finally did, I made a lot of friends, so now I actively share my studies and my personal journey there if anyone would like to pass by:

Sorry for the long introduction, thank you for reading this.

Oofta, almost four years since I joined and only now am I getting back to drawing stuff just because I want to draw it. Things get hard when your hobby becomes your job!

I'm an artist / software developer, trying to get better at art, since around 2003. My initial motivation was to do some stuff for my personal projects at a reasonable level, but since then it has become a passion in its own right.

I certainly miss the times when art forums were a big thing. Since I am a fan of Sycra and he has helped me a lot with my progress through his videos I thought I'd register here and maybe post some of my stuff. :)

Grettings, I am Darkuszow.

Here's my story:
Spoiler: show
I have taken more of an interest in art roughly around the end of 2015, although I practically don't draw often which I should.
Before it, in elementary school I've used to have the best grades on the art classes (wow), later in middle school had only history of all of it, nothing practical.
Somewhere in middle school I've got a small interest in drawing while playing LoL, wanted to draw them hot ladies, so drew one thing with mouse and gave up.
So back to the end of 2015 I've got interested in one particular character design, so made my version and made it OC - in written way.
I got so devoted and I wanted to draw it, so drew few things with mouse again, few months later bought tablet blah blah blah and now am here.

I like fantasy themes but also modernistic/innovative looks. I also love artistic nudity, night sky landscapes and particular semi-realistic styles.
I am incredibly hard learner which can be seen through my slow improvement (typical artist talk).
Nice to meet you.

I'm Soraname/Cerespam, I'm from Brazil and have been drawing since forever.

I started drawing manga a long loong time ago (2002) so I think I have a good base but lately I feel like I'm stuck... I can't really like what I have been drawing, most precisely faces... :/ Also I'm not particularly good at digital painting and usually too lazy to draw backgrounds. I enjoy a lot drawing androgynous bodies, legs, feet and hands.

You can check some of my drawings here: (didn't update in a long time tho lol)

I hope we can be friends and learn a lot toghether.
Thanks ;]

I go by the name Ash and I've wanted to be a cartoonist since i came out of the womb! I love me some old 20-40s cartoons and exaggeration. I hope to improve my drawings and understanding the principles of art/cartooning! So I thought what not start here as well.

I'm trying to improve my artwork so that I can self-publish a comic/manga/graphic novel some day.

Really like the forum and looking forward to interacting with all of you.
