sketches of march

I've been trying to get into the habit of drawing more and thinking in terms of being an artist as well as a graphic designer. The way I see it is that anyone can learn how to use Photoshop or design a web site, but if you can work in multimedia, I think you have more to offer in the the job market.

That's not the only reason that I want to draw more. When I was younger it was all I did and thought about. Somewhere along the line I lost that drive. Like a writer or a musician, art is a form of expression. I'm wondering what I've been doing to relieve myself of the many different emotions and life experiences that I've had over the years since I stopped. Drinking wine is my best guess :)

Are these your drawings? They are great - good sense of anatomy amd line of action!

Yes, I did this earlier last month. Obviously they are the most basic of sketches, as I didn't even add facial details. I was just trying to get a feel for the pencils again and "warm up" a bit. I'm pleased with what I did and hope to develop some of them soon.

I love these - especially the first one. Keep up the sketching!
