Want to learn how to draw?
If you've been reading this blog at all,
you'll notice that I am on a quest to learn how to draw.
I don't have any extra money right now, so I have checked out books
from the library, did some free online tutorials.
These all helped.
It has given me enough confidence to think that maybe
I can actually maybe do it!!!
But, I keep running up against problems.
Perspective. It is DIFFICULT.
I ran across the Wet Canvas Forums a few days ago.
Oh my god! The information there!!
The best thing? (Well, I think so anyway!)
It is an entire forum split up into lessons, each dedicated to their own thread.
Each class has its own downloadable PDF!
It is still an active forum, and the people running it
are informative and friendly.
I just started the first lesson today.
I printed out the first few lessons, and put them
in a handy dandy binder.
Just an example of how ALREADY it is helping me...
A kleenex box I drew a little over a week ago
The most frustrating part for me was I could not understand
how to get the angles right. It drove me batty! So I gave up.
The same Kleenex box, drawn tonight.
Ok, so there is still a lot wrong with it...hehe,
but it is in PERSPECTIVE.
I can't wait to join in on the discussion in these classes.
Some were started quite some time ago, but I'm not worried.
Will you come join?
