Ok so - its been a couple weeks now. I have spent about 1-2 hours a day drawing. Ive gone through a whole sketch book already. I have been reading the following:
- Fun with a pencil
- How to draw the marvel way by Stan Lee (Its actually just a basic drawing book pretty much)
The primary exercises I have been doing based on those books:
- Drawing heads from the loomis books
- Drawing bodies using basic forms in various poses from the marvel book
- Drawing Spheres and straight lines
The results thus far:
Under the auspices of the Nevada State Gaming commission and HBO boxing, calculations were performed by MIT using super computers and a subjective review was done by The A-Team, 2 Ninjas, and a breakdancing eskimo named Pete:
I am officially drawing at a 1st grade level!!! Hey two weeks ago I was below kindergarden status. What did you expect in 2 weeks? Improvement?
All kidding aside, I am really really enjoying this. I dont really know why - but Im having fun doing it. I wish I had done it years ago. I look forward to the part of the day when I get to draw.
I am also planning on taking a couple classes at an atelier (LAAFA) after a few months. I dont want to waste their time now.
Kenrick-Wu hope your still practicing.
