The interest to subject of drawing changes during the route of learning. At the beginning I am puzzled how to draw clouds (not that I lost this interest, just get some basics and the sky drawing is not a hard challenge anymore), then trees, sea waves, how to draw rain? fog? buildings?
The theme of portraits and human figures drawing looks very far and very impossible. And then you realize that this theme is the most interesting and intriguing, that figures are shapes, faces are shadows and you need practice, practice, practice and some arrogance to show your scraps to the friends.
The boy above is based on photo, I did several attempts to catch the proportions right, but head is still a problem. The monsters on the right are my 30sec exercises from Posemaniacs.com (link). I highly recommend this site as the training source. And I promise not to post more monsters until they look rather appropriate)).
