OK, now I do. Good job! You did that steam train in a similar thread last year, right?
Yep that was me. I usually try to paint more, but these are the last two I've been able to get done.

Next up is a Mass Effect painting from my girlfriend for Christmas that I should probably start right about...now.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

Sorry to hear that, you could do postcards and such, like guilty pleasure artist Thomas Kinkade (who I heard died quite young recently).

On two recent occasions I've gone to two life drawing sessions (which I hear you must do to brush up on human anatomy).

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

Looking forward to seeing some more of your artwork, Ted. I'd very much enjoy seeing anything you've recently completed, however simple or minor.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

Lately I've been doing silly cartoon doodles in a cheap sketchpad.

Silly or not, they might look fantastic. Post some of them if you feel comfortable doing so!

Ok, I've applied for a illustration course after the new year and it's being tutored by Sholto Walker. I'm a bit intimidated.

Here's some Doctor Who fan art, a collage of Oswald:

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

Do you think it was a good idea for me to join a formal art course at such short notice?

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

I'd say whatever your investment was has paid and is continuing to pay dividends. This is very good stuff you've posted in this thread and you have a lot of promise. I'm sure everyone here is impressed.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

These are all excellent!

I've dabbled in drawing over the course of my life, but have never been able to quite hone it to a level of any skill. I still doodle here and there, but occasionally come up with something I like, but again, it is absolutely not one of my skill-sets. (Seriously, you should see how awful my storyboards look)

I'll see if I can't dig up some old sketches from middle school and maybe share them later. If/until then, keep up the great work everyone!

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

I'm looking forward to your doodles. The real secret is doing at least one drawing a day (or many every week).

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

Yeah, add me to the list of people who'd like to see doubleoh's hand-drawn art. He's very talented in other fields and it makes me curious about how good his artwork might be.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

I'm looking forward to his doodling. Today I've spent all late morning and afternoon doing seven A4 pages worth of drawings.

I like this stylised but inventive wall art on YouTube:
