Alucard Posted June 26, 2008 Share Posted June 26, 2008 Seems like most people just use this forum to show thier art, if discussions are a no go then I apologise in advance. In another thread I briefly mentioned the moment I really got into drawing. Some of you people may take art seriously some may think its a dumb passtime. For those that do (i mean do take it seriously -_-!), I ask what was your journey getting in to art and how you gradually improved your skill? Ill go first as well Im the OP. My best friend in elementary school was awesome at drawing and was exceptionally good, so I used to doodle with him often. Eventually in 5th grade something clicked and I was able to draw well (I even felt I was drawing better than him, damn i was cheeky lol). I got into drawing manga style without actually knowing it, I copied dbz and street fighter characters and then made my own fighter guys (needless to say they were all hench men). When I grew older I used the net to find many resources that taught the principles of manga and practiced like mad. Polykarbon.com was a very influencial resource to my style and method. Im still improving as my actual drawings feel like they lack that special shine but now I have moved onto drawing complete manga's rather than static character designs.
