For about half a year, I have been getting back into drawing. To tell the truth,this is the longest time I have ever been drawing for. I have drawn from time to time but then I soon stopped.
What got me back into drawing is the Sagat picture I drew (currently in my gallery). My friend adviced me to copy a picture and learn from it. He was right! I am very proud of how the picture came out. When I saw the results, I decided to give it a go and continue with drawing. Besides learning from copying, I have also came up with tricks of my own, thanks to others who have shown me and I am trying out with sketching my own made up poses. It is coming out great!
You know when they say, practice makes perfect? Well, it is absolutely true! I feel that my drawings are beginning to improve. I honestly draw every single day and practice. My advice: Practice, practice, practice.
I do not know how far my drawings will go but I will certainly keep on going! It is like excercising the brain!
Looking at other people's work is the most fun and it gives me many ideas of what to draw. As well as looking through deviantart, I also browse other manga artists like Akira Himegawa, Minako Iwasaki, and others. I think I am starting to fall in love with the shojo style of drawing, which I am getting most of my influence from. I like the Shounen style as well but there are some things that I like in one style that the other one lacks.
Practice, practice, practice!! That is the key!
