Background

Years ago i discovered i could draw, by something of an "accident"

You see, i have a friend who always drew cartoons.  One day we came upon a photo in a magazine, and he surprises me by saying that he was going to try to draw the image. We had always loved challenging one another, and i decided to motivate him by making a bet that i could do it better.  I obviously didn't think much about it because i had never done anything remotely close to that.  My experience with Drawing was limited to school day science projects, or attempting a few objects such as cars, fruits, etc. I'd never dabbled in "shading" or far worse in drawing people.  So my bet was just to get him to give it his best shot, because heaven forbid he be beaten by a girl! ^_^.  So he does his work, shows off his drawing (which still had a "cartoony" look to it). then pushes me to fulfill my end of it. Deciding that i'd much rather be called out for not being able to draw, than a "wuss".. i borrowed his pencils, took a sheet of computer printing paper and started to draw.  When i was done, he first expressed shock, then disbelief that my worked looked "okay".  I too was surprised, and to see whether it was a "lucky" draw or not, the next day, i tried again, using a photo as reference.  Low and behold, it turned out "okay" too.  And so it began.

I read a few "how-to-draw/shade" articles and continued drawing. I have done quite a bit of work over a four year period; either for myself or for friends.

I am fascinated by the female human body, and particularly, faces.  I absolutely love drawing eyes.  and so i've been doing portraits.

I've had a lull over the past year, and decided to get back into things and then someone told me about "The Art Colony".. :)

Confessions:

-I am afraid of using colour. (Carbon/Graphite pencils for me!)

-I am afraid of drawing objects (other than fabric/clothing)

-I have always used computer printing paper

-I'd love to show my very first piece, but its a nude

-Drawing relaxes me

-I'm not sure about being and "artist" an' all that. But i've finally come to admit that i do a pretty okay job.

After finding this site, i am encouraged to source better quality paper and pencils to improve my work and to develop my techniques.
