Three Great Leaders by WarriorapprenticeKat

It's hard to add anything to what Eternal-Black-Wings already said but one thing that I noticed immediately is the quality of the strip...

Another one of Lee Hammond's assigments. I think I did very well with this one but I've started to struggle with the lessons that come after this one. The fact that most lessons revolve around single objects that pretty much float on air is starting to bother me a little. It's boring to draw like that and the items are handled out of context which makes understanding lighting and form a bit difficult.

So from now on I think I'll draw full still life images that include some of the same objects as in Lee Hammond's books. This way I can bundle different lessons together and I also get to draw the image myself according to a reference photo.

Our first shooting session didn't go very well. Our apartment is rather dark so I had to switch on the flash to get at least some sort of photos of moving targets. Our cats are still a bit freaked out by the flash so it will take some training. Sumo still had fun though :)

A tripod is an extremely interesting piece of equipment.

I'm a 29 year old woman from Finland. I've been drawing since I was a kid but I never pursued drawing as a real passion which is a shame. I even quit the hobby nearly entirely during high school. I spent 10 years not actively drawing but after both of my grandparents passed away, I started to feel like I'm wasting my life just going to work and then sitting at the computer playing games for the rest of the day. So I picked up pencil and paper again.

Figuring out my desired medium has been a long road of trial and error. I dislike actual digital painting quite a bit and fell completely in love with colored pencils but in time it became painfully obvious how much time and patience color pencils require. So I spent a lot of money and time in figuring out what to use in tandem with colored pencils. I'm about to try soft pastels and see how that goes. I loved soft pastels in high school :)
Sorry I haven't uploaded anything in a while. I've been drawing a lot and practicing digital coloring but my finished paintings are Christmas presents for family members so I won't be uploading them for obvious reasons. I still have 2 more paintings to go after which I might start doing personal stuff again.
