I'm a person that hadn't touched a pencil or a brush in 16 years. All of a sudden about a month ago, after surfing DeviantART, I had this urge to buy me a case of coloured pencils and try out, you know... just for the fun of it.
What came out of my hand was not nearly what I expected. Having never taken art classes or learned anything additional to what was tought in basic elementary school art classes, these drawings were far superior to what I should be capable of doing.
This got me thinking that maybe I could be a contributer to the world greatest art museum that DeviantART is instead of only an admirer.
I do realize my drawings are amateurish and that I have many things to learn. With every picture I draw there is more confidence shown and more lessons learned and I hope that I can reach a novice status at some stage. I'm quite curious to know how far I can push my limits.
All constructive criticism and handy tips are well appreciated
