Well, I suppose I should finally get out of my shell and start posting.
Well hello, I'm Volodymyr (or Vlad). I've started doing art semi-seriously sometime mid 2022 after my friend suggested I do something that I've wanted to do for a long time.
So far I've got a decent grasp on basic shapes and construction from another site called DrawaBox. Though I followed the course content there for a while it was at the start of this year I had properly defined my artistic goals.
Currently my first major goal is to draw female anthro characters with accurate proportions, anatomy, etc (no clothing for now) in any pose. Following this goal I have several others but I think it to be best to avoid overwhelming myself.
As of today, I've finished watching Nude_Figure_Drawing of the term 1 pack of Art school, and did a quick 30 minute practice session without a timer. I really struggle with finding the movement and translating that onto a canvas, so I welcome any advice.
I'll also be skipping some of the assignments in the Nude_Figure_Drawing assignment sheet, mostly the construction and perspective exercises.
I've also thrown together a weekly study schedule for myself to try and reach my first goal but I am currently unable to share it (new user).
Anyway, here is the results of my first 30-minute gesture study:
Hopefully with time and experience I will be able to give critiques to other students.
