advice for a newb like me.

Hi guys,

I've been drawing and sketching for almost all my life, But i was inconsistent in
studying the arts and i thought that if I just kept drawing from my mind it will
make me better eventually. I guess i was wrong.

Currently I'm in self-train mode, and i've been lurking and reading a lot of member's post and was very impressed at how fast they've improved. But i was very much impressed on how active and dedicated the community is especially the forum leaders in helping new people like me.

I really want to start over and and get serious about studying digital arts and my interest most specifically is in character design, so i figured i'll start by studying anatomy. But after reading all these tutorials and references found in this site, i'm very confused on where to start, so i'm asking you guys to please assess my current skills (if i do have any ) and ask for your guidance, i need a lot of catching up to do. thanks

some anatomy studies with shorts. hehe

the style i want to develop, skinny but well built bodies.

the two passions in my life are basketball and drawing. i've always wanted to make a manga about basketball, i've already developed the story but i'm still not confident about my artwork.

thank you, that's all

Hello and welcome. I'd recommend starting up a Sketchbook and also participating in the latest Workshop!
