I want to draw - I have to draw!

This little blog should – in a perfect world - function as a peek into my personal little trip down the road of drawing. I can guarantee there will be plenty of road rage, steep learning curves, crying and thumb sucking involved.
If you scroll down you will see some of my begging steps (hahahaha I'll let that stand - Freudic slip - but I mean *beginning*). Since I never really did any drawing prior, I don’t have any old drawings lying around to share either - unfortunately.
My starting level was nothing, stickmen and general straight line challenged, with an newly added circle handicap – good fucking game.
But I’m determined I will learn this, whatever the cost.

I hate drawing self-portraits

Bad idea gone even worse! Self portrait, sorry for the brightness, but if I autocorrect it turns it into something... out of a horror movie. Pratice is pratice at least.
And no! it's not an accurate depiction - fuck you! well the whiteness is kinda right :P

Drawing of Johnny Depp in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Portrait - again I had to autoadjust brightness which utterly fucks with the sketch, like for example I can see that I didn't really bother  with the top hat much. oh well :)

Portrait, pausing a movie and drawing basically :) He ended up bein a bit on the chubby side, which I blame all the bloody "guidelines" for, but it's all a learning experince!

Drawing without lines

Drawing some painterstape, should have been without any lines - but apperantly I missed that part, details! :)

A portrait drawing of a model

A portrait drawing, model is... nevermind :P
I don't know how to work my scanner properly, so I had to do some photoshop auto correction on brightness, which makes the lines look ALOT more confident than they are. But without it's simply impossible to see anything.

Drawing empty space

Drawing exercise about empty space.

More "handjobs".

Learning to draw my own hand

After drawing my hand on some on transperant plastic I had to draw my hand on normal paper again.

Whatever happened doin the plastic shit it apperantly worked - to some extent.

Second upside down drawing - a drawing of Albert Einstein

Upside down drawing again - sorry Albert! :)

Drawing upside down - an exercise from Betty Edwards book

To completely fuck my mind up, here's a upside down drawing. At this point I picked up a book by Betty Edwards - The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. Some of the next and possible previous drawings are exercises from there.
