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.
