I really like your work and admire that commitment, Baenhoof. :)

My art skill is in a bookmark midway through the first chapter of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain and hasn't moved in years. '._.

For line drawing, you can take two exercises out of this book and forget reading the rest.

1. Turn a photograph upside down. Copy it.

2. Set objects of different sizes and shapes on the table in front of you. Draw their silhouettes in a continuous line without sketching volumes or any interior line.

These two things will train your eye to follow what it sees rather than the cognitive shortcuts it wants to take. Once you get to the point where you can draw what you see, it's a matter of doing just that for practice. A lot. Admittedly this is where my advancement breaks down...

Baen: you're like the most generousest sketcher and deserve something back, can I draw your tauren sometime.
Thanks :)

I will give that a try, maybe when I'm home later.



also baenhoof: you're ... beautiful. i have to draw you.

How long did it take you to get to where you are now with your art? I tried for about a year or so, but just wasn't making any progress so I decided to drop it.


Lemme get out the toes, hold on...

15 years, give or take? I started to take it seriously in a 'I want to be a good artist' kind of way when I was 8.

You definitely will hit those really terrible, frustrating as hell skill plateaus, frequently, and they suck. The only way to get past them is just strength of will and pure tenacity, though. Just gotta keep truckin' :P


oh god. that's alot of years.

maybe I should take it back up.
Sorely tempted to color some of your sketches for fun... Sooooo so tempted.

I'd suggest taking a class if you want to learn quickly. The people who boast "15 years" for example have usually been self-taught from childhood, or are older. I'm one of those people and I'm nowhere near as advanced as Baenhoof is, for example, it's really about the individual. If I'd had access to drawing classes as a kid, I'd probably be much more advanced than I am.
I've been drawing for about 11 years... I'm fairly well on drawing:

But... I'm nowhere near Baen's level of talent.
Gonna stream a doodle. Come if you're bored/not asleep. :U

Auramis, you and anyone else is completely welcome to colour whatever you like of my sketches. Just show me when you're done, k? :D
