I have joined the art school few months back but didnt have any time to dive into it fully.
I have started to doodle at the start of this year when I got my first tablet. I bought it to edit my photos more easily but tried some drawing and got hooked. I spent much more time painting then editing since then
From there I watched probably all tutorials on youtube as well as some paid ones. Problem is that I got better at following tutorials and copying references but I am completely stuck when I have to do any original artwork. I am really hoping this course will help me with that!!
Here are two of my best pieces I've made to date and underneath my best effort from January when I first started playing. I want to post these as a starting point to look back to. They all portraits for some reason
This one is from one week portrait challenge, my most recent:
This one is from when I was subscribed to paintable academy for a little while:
I cant find a link to the reference photos anymore but they are both from pinterest
and here is my best effort from January when I had absolutely zero idea what I was doing:
I of course will be very happy for any critique you guys can give me. Either for these portraits or on any future lessons and excercises from Art School
