Figure Drawing Training Tool - 2 min

At conceptart.org I found a link to a for me incredible site: Figuredrawing. This site includes a tool, where you should create art in an extremely short amount of time - in my case 2 minutes. Today I have done this for the first time in my life. And god, I suck. :/ But I want to do this daily from now on. So yeah, I hope it gets better after a while.

Follow me on my journey

Hi everyone,

I always loved drawing, but the last three years I don't did it any more. So I decided to "restart" drawing. I want to learn anatomy, perspectives, light & shadows and everything else important. I don't know how long it would take, but I hope that someday, I can call myself an artist :)

The aim of this blog is to show my progress, so I and also you can see, how I hopefully grow.

Today is the 22.08.2011 and here are my first studies:
