Moochador by nachomoo
So a few years back I was in a pretty bad place. After an abusive relationship, soul destroying job and almost constant pain from a bad car crash, I had a "super happy fun mind go byebye time!". I think the Doc called it a mental breakdown.
Will spare the poop details and flash forward about 18months. I met someone who encouraged me to start drawing again.
I wasnt sure but i started to look around online and i found DA! So many pretties!

I think the first thing i put up after joining was a little icon I made for a competition for The Fancy Narwhal.

After that I joined a group called Daily Sketch Challenge. A group dedicated to getting people to draw every day which i needed since it had been so long since i had drawn. Once in a while they would hold Character Battle Royals. A draw-off tournament. Lots of fun. Lots of People. Lost very badly in the first round but met lots of great people some of which I am now lucky enough to call my friends.
In the second CBR I took part in I managed a first for me. A drawing that I was proud of.
I knew Mojo Jojo wouldnt let me down.

After that I carried on drawing my cartoon types. Love cartoons!
I started to try my hand at more comic book style drawings and I was rubbish... So i started to try colour them instead which I found I enjoyed just as much as drawing. One of the best things about DA is the access to great artists. Even better they are often happy for you to try and colour their work.

and Deat Heat by my good friend Seb Carey :iconsebcarey:

Four Years since I started here. Its no lie to say I probably wouldn't still be drawing if I hadn't found this site and alot of the wonderful people here and at times drawing is all thats kept me sane.
 Still a long way to go till I get as good as I want to be and although there are always knockbacks and kicks in the pencil I gotta keep going.

I started with a Narwhal and i'll end with one too.

Long time away from drawing and all things artistic, due to all manner of injuries and not fun things. Now found myself with a massive amount of free time. Slowly learning to use GIMP and getting the drawing pencils out again.

Hi Mark, I see you've been working on your coloring! If you're looking to push your work even more I thought it'd be worth making sure you know about the HiFi Color for Comics Kickstarter. The book has been updated from the original publication and has already passed it's first stretch goal.

Future goals will see new content like color theory for comics, coloring toned artwork and coloring for the web amongst others coming alongside new artwork from creators such as J Scott Campbell, Katie Cook & Humberto Ramos to name but 3.

What's more you automatically get access to the on-line HiFi Academy if you get a digital or print version of the book and incentives include options such as digital or print versions of the instructional book, portfolio reviews and follow up with one of industries top colorists, one on one lessons on line or even a 3 day comics coloring bootcamp in sunny Arizona!

If any of this sounds interesting to you or you want to know more then check out the campaign page, the more artists that pledge the more we all get out of the book as those awesome stretch goals bring in new content!…
