Mainly because every time I come here I see the same old journal page and it's starting to annoy me.  Still learning to draw people, working my way through 50 men at the moment and continually frustrated at my progress.  That said, I'm fairly sure that improvement comes over a matter of years rather than days so I'm sticking at it.  I am managing to pick up on some recurring features as I do the sketches which is something I found when I did all the hands and feet, and there's certainly some degree of learning going on.  Erm.  That's probably about all I can put here with regard to progress.  Will return to my men now.

Keep meaning to update this bit but never get around to it. Very much a hobbyist, the fun for me is in making the drawings rather than the satisfaction of producing something beautiful that I enjoy looking at. In fact looking at my pictures tends to cause me some discomfort and I'm self-critical to a pathological degree. Getting better every day though.

I'm a bit fickle when it comes to settling down and sticking to a medium. Current flavour of the month is charcoal, but that could all change soon. So far we've dabbled with pencils, digital painting, acrylic and pen & ink - oh, and a month or two playing with 3D rendering.

It's all about faces and figures for me, I don't have a landscapey or still-lifey bone in my body. STILL not managed to get to a life drawing class, but I will. One day.

Thank you! No art yesterday I'm afraid, though did read a significant chunk of a big book on drawing that was a gift so I'm counting that as creative work :P
