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.

Oh hai there.

Yeah it's been awhile since last update, sorry.

I'm starting on a drawing course in October and it's like that's been my excuse lately.
I picked up the pencil and convinced myself to not use the tablet before I started the course, stupid idea tbh. Using the pencil again is really challenging and I don't have enough “ideas” to keep me busy. I'm trying to follow some different books, but it's a slow process and I think I should pick up the tablet again really, since it's just so easy to use and it steps up the productivity in my case.
It's the whole balancing act thing, I'm very much all or nothing, in this case, it's either tablet or pencil, which is fucking moronic and I'm gonna try and vary it now - It's weird how you can realize things when you write shit down lol.

I haven't been completely lazy though, there's not a lot to upload, but at least there's a few things lying around.

I've been playing some old school, Maniac Mansion and Day of the Tentacle, so obviously I tried to draw some of those characters using the basic shapes approach. I might have been a bit influenced by watching The Big Lebowski as well...

*(yeah I did "cheat" a bit with using the tablet to try and add some color... ssshh)

Drawing those small characters, made me think about putting up the title to Day of the Tentacle on my wall here, which took me into some weird drawing letters direction, a bit like graffiti I suppose, so I ended up trying to do my own wild style letters as well, though I only got to four “T, U, E, L” but that whole thing is like a mystery to me, I would love to learn more about that since the style looks efing cool when done right (mine are.... not done right, baby steps!).
They are kinda silly, basically I no fucking clue what I'm doing here, started out with just very "block" like letters and then into something... weirdish, but one thing I really enjoyed was to just color them... I love the tablet ><!

And then I've been working on some Riven Phoenix and Vilppu studies again, getting mad as fuck one more time :)
