Hey everyone. Quick intro - about a year ago, out of the blue, I decided it would be cool to learn how to draw. I could tell my family thought it was a bit weird - and fair enough too, as I had barely ever picked up a pencil before, never took art at high school.. nothing. So not surprisingly my drawings were truly horrible. I got myself a sketchbook and pencils and did as much practice as time would allow (which is never as much as I'd like, but that's just how it is with two kids and a full time job..). A few months later I bought a second hand tablet and so have also been learning the software side of it too. I have only now attempted to do a complete piece (rendered, colored etc) as I have been giving priority to, you know... learning how to draw first! I feel a bit sheepish posting on this page as there are so many professionals, or aspiring professionals here. But the thing is, although I'm not looking to do it as a career - I'm still deeply motivated to succeed with this. I really want to prove to myself I can do it. And who knows, it would be great to get to the point where I could sell some prints or do the odd commission.
So anyway, here it is. The Last Son of Krypton getting ready to kick some butt on a rainy Metropolis night. It's not great, but ya gotta start somewhere! Comments and critiques very welcome - I'd be interested to see if they line up with my own misgivings about it.
Thanks to Clayton for creating this community and sorry for the long boring post! Cheers, Mike.
