StealthMsopz Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have a question. I would like to start improving my art and I have the whole summer ahead of me but I do not know where to start, if you would be so kind is there any suggestions you could give me? thanks so much!
TsaoShin Featured By Owner 1 day ago  Professional Digital Artist
Hey there!  The best thing to do is keep a summer journal!  Go out and get a sketchbook with the goal of filling in every page by the end of the summer.  No matter what, keep every page and try to fill in the whole thing.  Just a few times a day, grab the book and sketch out a still life, or an idea, or some random doodle.  By the end of the summer you should be filling in that last page.  The best part is that you can see your improvement over the course of the sketchbook!  It gets you practicing every day and it's a fun way to document your summer :>
