I’ve always drawn, but I can’t say my doodles from my childhood showed much talent Cx I’ve been “seriously” drawing since I was 13, when I began studying anatomy and the likes C: it doesn’t sound weird at all!
I’m okay with it for practising purposes only, as long as you don’t take my style as your own UuU However I heavily suggest looking at photos of animals/humans as that’s how I learned the anatomy and have the style that I do now! <33 Look at the photo, trace it, then try to draw it freehand, then on the 3rd go try to break down the steps! Eventually you will have memorised both the realistic and your stylised version of whatever you decide to draw! Here’s a crappy old tutorial explaining that a bit better: http://skaikat.tumblr.com/post/75612256707/ive-had-a-few-questions-like-this-lately-heres
Thank you so much for asking and good luck! C:
