New to drawing

Hello everyone

I am completely new to both drawing aswell as this forum. I've decided I want to master a new skill and so decided I want to draw as it is a activity with limitless possibilities and minimum equipment requirements at the same time as i am amazed by it meself. I have been browsing trough the web for quite a few minutes now and I dont really know where I should begin with my "journy" and so I decided "Why not start at a responding community?". What I want is to be able to draw out of my imagination both cartoons and more realistic humans aswell as portraits. Now I know this will take years of drawing and practicing. But If I don't start it'll take even longer :o
So I guess my question is, where do I begin? [-o<

Re: New to drawing

Thanks for the link Phan-Tom, there is indeed great tips and important points in there. I guess the only way to be good is to let the pencil hit the paper!

Good luck Angelita, I hope you find joy in drawing. :)

Re: New to drawing

Well I must say that I already find joy in drawing.. :D

It's just that I have soo much to learn!! I already notice that every 'drawing' or 'doodle' (how you would like to call it) is an exercise.. That's for sure :D

Re: New to drawing

I wanna draw a portrait of someone, who it is dosent really mather. What I am wondering is basically how you find your subjects? is it a google-search or is it a magazine you found visiting your aunt? Or do you choose them by facial features? :wink: Would for example someone with a beard be easier to draw then someone without? or is it there any difference wether the light comes from behind or from infront? Which features is the best for an overall learning progress? :roll:

Answers is very much appreciated :)

Re: New to drawing

I google,but you need to be interested in the subject or image otherwise it can become tiresome.If you have a favourite actor/actress or musician,maybe a pet or famous landmark...your choice :D
