Drawing... where do I begin? D:

on: September 26, 2010, 03:17:29 pm
So... I am kind of stuck with pixel art at the moment and I decided to pick up drawing to learn the basics of art and even make my own original art someday.
My problem is though, where should I begin?
I really have no idea and I'd appreciate your help. :)

Starting now
Train your creativity, practice brainstorming techniques, meditate, observe your surroundings with top sense
Putting those into reality is the next step, but the fundamentals would be the theoretical things first I think.

The best way to learn is self learning, through your own observations (its a longer but more enjoyable process).

Draw simple objects. Vases, bottles, anything that stays still. You'll soon find these aren't as simple as they seem and that drawing a vase is much harder than drawing a symbol of a vase. from that you can draw other things from nature, anything that interests you. Learning human anatomy will allow you to express yourself through your drawings particularly well.

Thanks for the advice guys :)
I'll start right away with practicing, I'll prolly draw some objects first and work my way up
we'll see :lol:
thanks again
any further advice is welcome
also what are things I should avoid? (like things i shouldnt do b/c they would interrupt my process of learning?)
