For as long as I can remember I have had a pencil in my hand doodling or drawing throughout my life. My Dad is a big part of that. He is a great sketch artist and painter, though he never pursued it professionally. I got discouraged from art at a young age (This may be a story for a post one day) and started drawing less and less but would still doodle in private. I became embarrassed of my skills because they had deteriorated from negligence.
So here now I bring you my Daily Doodle Challenge. I don’t know if this will grow into something more but it would be amazing if it did. Right now I am just using this to motivate myself and get my skills back up to and beyond what I was once capable of.
Part of why I chose a blog instead of a private challenge for myself is this public obligation, even if only one person is looking, knowing that someone might see me slip up helps keep me motivated. I would also love it if you made suggestions on what I should draw (example: funny dog, beach landscape, demkipede, something steampunk etc but nothing too specific) I will probably take inspiration from those when I have no ideas myself.
I am working through a few art instruction books and you will probably see a lot of stuff based off those instructions.
I am sorry some of the drawings will be bland and boring but I will do my best to jazz it up either in the art or in the post itself. As time goes on I will try to bring you more and more original art from my cranium, I have lots in there but need to build the skills to bring the ideas to you.
