(Welcome to my Bio! I'm more active on Instagram these days. My Instagram is www.instagram.com/havefundrawi…)

Art had always been my least favorite class and my worst subject in my school days. I have horrible hand writing too- it's like I have little control of my hands. So I never dreamed I could draw anything.

After I'm all grown up and started working, I started making dolls (sackboys for you PS gamer peeps), and I couldn't figure out how to place the facial features to look cute. So I bought myself a "figure drawing for dummies" book. After some practices, I could draw better than stick figures with things I learned! I started taking screenshots of interesting faces I saw on TV and sketched them. I learned some pencil techniques from "Five pencil method" on youtube and improved quite a bit.

I put my pencil down for a few years after I had kids, focusing on photography, scrapbooking and oh, keep my babies alive. I recently picked it up again after stumbling upon Proko on youtube. He does such amazing job on explaining figure drawing I decided to tackle the body, in addition to faces. (Actually the reason I browsed youtube for tutorials is all of a sudden I had this idea in my head that I wanted to paint with acrylic. To complete that painting I needed to understand figure drawing and gesture drawing, not just faces.)

Hopefully I can keep it up longer than a few months this time around!

My favorite resources:
1. PROKO TV (learn the fundamentals in a fun way)- www.youtube.com/user/ProkoTV/p…

1a. This is the most amazing brief of what to learn when it comes to human figures. So I'm inserting this toward the top of the list! hippie.nu/~unicorn/tut/xhtml/#…

2. five pencil method if you want to draw realistically- Start with this playlist: www.youtube.com/playlist?list=…

3. CtrlPaint.com: It's mostly for digital artist but he covered a lot of basic concept such as line weight, composition gesture drawing and perspective that all beginners can benefit from. www.ctrlpaint.com/library/

4. Sycra: He tends to ramble on and on but he has so many useful videos and he explains things for dummies. I don't follow his video playlists from beginning to end, rather I search for my question and watch relevant video(s) he has. www.youtube.com/user/Sycra

Vine charcoal & charcoal pencil on strathmore 400 drawing paper. C&C welcome! I think I made the leg's core shadow way too dark and strong, and I should've done more midtown on her breasts.

-Collect artworks, screenshots that you like that has good color palette and contrasts, and do quick studies (20min - 1 hr). Pay attention to value studies.
