so, i think i may have gotten myself into a bit of trouble by thinking that i just might want to be able to draw something a little more artistic than a map. i have always wanted to be able to whip out a rendition of my characters as well as of those of the rest of my group. trouble is that i can barely play a legible game of hangman!
thusly i begin the journey with my first step. i am going to be focusing on developing some drawing skills in order to accomplish this. it’s not going to be easy, i can see this already, but it is something that i desperately want to be able to do.
i have many books, many pencils, and many erasers. i plan to use them all.
for anyone else looking to embark on a similar journey, especially for those with little to no ability, i recommend checking out Shoo Rayner’s YouTube channel. he provides a solid starting location to begin the arduous task of learning to draw.
now, when i say beginning to draw i mean just that. BEGINNING. like, start with a straight line. i’m realistic enough to know that i’m light years away from creating anything that will pass for a character.
i will be posting all of my progress here, warts and all. i welcome any and all C+C! hopefully, it won’t be toooo long before i have something on paper that i won’t be too embarrassed to share….
i will still continue to turn out some maps, especially as my DM requires them.
