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.

Fucking eyesight! wtb cyborg implants kkthxbai.

Yeah, back to my eyes being all shitty again ffs, haven't been able to do alot of work past week so gg - hope it's just a mild attack and it's nothing which will leave more scar tissue... -.-

Anywho, a couple of pics.

Some Roman general armor sculpture thing, I think the ornaments on the chest was suppose to be seahorses or something like that at some point, but the sculpture is fairly battered, so couldn't tell really. I couldn't really finish the base of it, what went on below the drapery was simply impossible for me to see at the distance I was sitting - prolly 1.5 meters away... yeah fuck my life!

Been feeling very insecure in how I go around drawing, I hate the sense of drawing like some childrens book with numbered points "connect #1 with #2 etc." If I measured out enough points with high certainty, then wtf am I really drawing? I want to draw from fantasy and I don't feel like I'm challenging that by doing "arcitetual drawings"... Anyway long story short, tried to draw this sculpture with just curves and see how that turned out, it turned out fucking bullshit!
Same sculpture different position. I tried to limit the things I would try and measure out normally. If I remember correct I think it tried to get the height and width correct by doing the normal box shit, then I tried to find the correct height the crotch or what u call it would be placed and then the breasts and try to build it up from that, but yeah I must have fucked up the measuring of those parts because the distance between her breasts and crotch seems way to far, but only spotted it after I rendered it so fuck that shit not gonna erase 2 hours of painful drawing to cut away some centimeters ! ><

Some pages from the sketchbook, mix of fantasy and observations from sitting at the museum. The attempts at drawing from life are pretty fucked, I think I'm slowly coming to the conclusion I simply can't do those, at least not of people, my eyesight is simply too bad for making out even the simplest anatomy at a distance, I was trying to quick sketch a choir who was rehearsing at some point, but I have to guess about so many things, like how the person is seated because I simply can't see the difference between what's legs and what's chair/handbag or bowling ball... it's absurd -.-

I'm sorry if there are like a million of spelling mistakes and errors in the text (or more than usual at least ;)), but cba to sit squinting at the text just to work up a headache.

'nuff talk more drawings! kkthx

I'm getting behind on posting stuff, it's not that I'm not drawing anything, I'm just procrastinating like a mofo!

But gotta update ofc. I won't be adding any lengthy explanations to each upload, thinking it's better to upload something relevant like drawings... *cough* and not as much bs ranting - and maybe it will even be easiere to keep updated if I don't have to write a small novel to each update. :P

A group of friends I play boardgames with. (I'm #3 from the left...)

Random shit.

Sketches from Glyptoteket and last 3 are an assignment I went overboard with *sigh* and yes it's me playing x-box.
Watercolor bs.

This will do for now. I should prolly take some pics of some of my sketchbook drawings, but ugh not motivating to spend time prep'ing that, still need to show the full side of things and all the angry frustrating sketches are part of that afterall, it's not all overworked study drawings measured down to the last detail.
