Title: Sketchbook tour. Big thank you to the let's draw course.
Post by: Zach on June 02, 2016, 07:55:36 PM
Hey everybody!  Here's a sketchbook tour video I did.   Check it out and let me know what you think.   I love looking back on my old art work and seeing how much I've progressed over the last few years.   I owe a huge thank you to Dennis and Nolan for creating such an amazing resource for artists around the world,  the Let's draw course progressed my skill level in a huge way.   Also thanks to everyone who's helped me,  instructed me,  and encouraged me over the years. 

! No longer available (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uvNYaAxp90#)

The let's draw was truly amazing,  such a huge help to me.   Before the let's draw course I was struggling with many aspects of drawing.   When I started taking the let's draw course,  I could see how it was helping me.   I could see my progress.  And that was really exciting.   I would recommend this course to anyone. 

Thanks again Dennis and Nolan,  keep up the great work!

Just watch your video.  Agree Let's Draw is an incredible course. You have made great progess.

You may want to write on the cover of your sketcbooks the month/year you start the book, and maybe the date you finish it.  Like journals they become very valuable with time.  Apparently Dennis had keep all of his.

Well done. I enjoyed watching your video.  :clap:

Zach,

Great work and some serious progression, most excellent! I left a longer comment on your YouTube video  :)

You should be really proud of your drawings, it was a excellent idea to make a video clip and show how your skills have advanced over time (it gives us all hope lol) ...

... I agree with the other commenters here, dating your sketchbooks even just one the cover is a great idea  and one I need to do too.

cheers.... Kiwidutch :)

Zach, a couple of years ago, maybe longer??, I remember your frustration and wanting to quit your drawing.  I and many others encouraged you to keep working at it... Then I was the one who quit.. actually not willingly, but due to other things going on in my life.  I'm trying to get back into my art.  I never really believed I quit.. I was just taking a break.  ...but look at you now.  It's amazing how you have grown in your abilities!  You are definitely on a positive track and it can only get better from here.  Now you are an encouragement to me to just keep trying.  Congrats on a job well done.   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :thankyou: polliwag,  I remember that.   It was tough,  I was extremely frustrated do to failure after failure.   But I kept with it and I'm glad I did.   And I know you'll be glad to!  Art is hard work,  but it's definitely worth it.   :)

Zach, this was really fun to watch and courageous of you.  Most of us would not be willing to show our progress but it is SO helpful to all.  It really shows that practice is the way to improvement!.  There were so many of the sketches I loved, especially your original ones.  The sketches on toned paper have a new depth especially with your use of white.  Awesome
