Kind of just a thought processed journal that I've been thinking about (yeah its about me sorry )
As you all can see I love to draw (duh I wouldn't be here in the first place )
I've been drawing since I could remember and have been drawing sonic since I was about 11 years old. I remember at that age I created a fan character: and my dream was to pitch her to SEGA.sonikkufan94.deviantart.com/ar… Pffft hahahaha sorry that's seriously what I thought back then?! Oh man I was so naive
Anyway as I started to go through puberty I began to change my mind and became infatuated with the Archie comics at the age of 14. I wanted to be a comic artist but I had no idea how to draw freehand. I was good at copying but not at drawing on my own. I attempted many many comics, and all I binned because I just couldn't do it. I remember my mum telling me that I was just dreaming. Well by the age of 16 I realised that artwork was a complete waste of time! For my GCSEs I focused on more meaningful topics such as history and geography. I told art to go fuck itself and carried on.
After my GCSEs I wanted to go down the medical science route. (lol) Maybe become a paramedic as I said NO to fucking university. I am SICK of education! I hate it! Its not cause I'm dumb, I just hate the idea of writing essays for meaningless subjects and degrees. I want to walk in the real world. Unfortunately, by the age of 17 I was suffering with really bad art blocks, I had no creative juices and I was thinking of throwing in the towel as I wasn't improving. I joined this website for some inspiration.
By the time I was 18 I realised that medical science was shite. I couldn't learn any of it and I only just passed the btec at college. Around this time last year I was desperate to find the next stage in my life and found out that apprenticeships were a way forward. I applied for many jobs linked with business. I was thinking that receptionist or PA or something like that would be a fantastic route to go. So I got this job.
Since the summer my artwork has admittedly improved a hell of a lot! I still have a long way to go but it has been a long road. What I'm initially saying is that yes I do have a dream. Its a dream I know I will never achieve, I want to be just like Tracy Yardley! He is such a good artist and I love how he draws sonic. My mum has changed her tune saying I should try something and push my artwork forward. Even my aunt has said so. The problem is I don't know where to go with my art style. I have no qualifications in art, I have never been taught the things I draw properly. All my artwork you see is me experimenting, and my own doing. I get inspired by all the artwork in my favourites and all the people I watch. I don't just put anything in my favourites it really has to "speak" me.
I thank all my watchers for the support you have given me. You don't know how much it means to a nobody like me I'm always anxious as to what people say about my artwork. Not anxious in a bad way but how people like it or not. I'm open for criticism and love feedback be it positive or negative. Its the way I learn.
So thank you all again for your support!
