Lucas Carvalho
Hey! My name is Lucas Carvalho. I'm a casual artist looking to learn about drawing, inking and maybe starting on painting. I'm still figuring out this site/platform. Anyway, here's a quick inking I just did.

Abner Martinez
Hey everyone! My name's Abner, and I love to design around creatures and environments. As of recent, I've been spending 2021 working with digital art and focusing a lot on human anatomy and facial expressions to give more life into my drawings. (The last one was a piece from 2019.) It's nice to meet everyone. :)

Hello, I am looking forward to creating in an art community where I can learn and share knowledge. :D I work for a small games company making mobile game art but I still need to keep my fundamentals up to scratch!  My dream is to make comics where I can subject the world to the utter abomination that is my mind :P.  - apologies.

Seb Blaze
Awesome idea! My name is Seb and I've been drawing as long as I've been alive, but really started drawing consistently/seriously around age 12, 16 years ago. I went to school for illustration, but the art program at my university was very underfunded and I feel like the curriculum didn't give me what I needed/wanted out of my schooling. About a year after graduating, I found Stan's YouTube! I think it was still mostly all him at the time. I'm really proud of him and everyone at Proko now for what they've built this into. It's a huge help for me and makes me really optimistic for all the upcoming artists in the world. Here's some of my stuff:

Hi!, my name is Cesar and I like draw DTIYS and video games related things. Here is some of my recent artwork :D I started drawing 3 years ago, because I saw the speed paints that riot games published and I found it fascinating what could be achieved, so now this is my journey to try to do something similar :)

Hey, I’m ScotArt I’ve been starting and stopping art for about 10yrs and been trying to take it more serious and make meaningful improvements. Here is a few pieces I’ve done in the last couple months. I’m currently trying to learn proper figure drawing and it is kicking my ass tbh but i hope to be at least a little better at the end of the course

Julia Whitenight
Hello, My name is Julia. I was once an artist for commission (portraits, mainly), but for many and varied reasons ended up dropping art entirely for approx. 20 years. I'm back! ... with the purpose of following a vision I've developed for a kind of personal art based on my childhood, and love of graphite and fairy tale illustration. It's been humbling to pick up my tools and get back in the game -- so rusty! So unnatural! I'm looking forward to it all feeling natural again. I really suck at self-promotion/portfolio work, so I have very little to show for the years I was active, but I dug out what I could (a couple portraits, some live model work, and an unfinished horse/rider piece).

Christopher Tomley
Hey everyone! My name's Chris and I've recently taken up drawing mainly due to the draftsman podcasts infectious enthusiasm and positivity. I've started with the book 'drawing on the right side of the brain' Then I'm hoping to move on to one of the great courses on here. Here's one of my assignments from the book and a personal WIP of Grogu using a photo reference. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated 🙂

Hi everyone my name is Hugh. I am returning to drawing and painting after a really, really long hiatus. This site looks really great and I am excited to participate, grow and learn! Thanks Proko for building this incredible resource! Currently struggling to find time to devote to my art but hoping to change that...for good. I've been trying to keep things loose as I get reacquainted with drawing. Working primarily on some fast study sketches to get the juices flowing. Currently really interested in anatomy of the back.

We're in the same boat -- hang in there, and don't get discouraged by the "down time" you've experienced!

Hello, I'm a guy who like many others has found time to make art through the pandemic. I have always loved drawing but have struggled in the past with a pressure to make my creativity commercial, until now. Now I'm in a place where is can just do art for arts sake and it feels good! The site looks great and I have gained so much from the live streams, so thanks Proko!!

You've reached Zen ... 😊 ... we should all be doing art for art's sake, then selling what others want to buy. I had the same struggle in my early years, where those who supported my art really only ever saw it from a standpoint of whether it could support me, and/or whether whatever I was working on at a given moment was good enough to sell. It was almost crippling. Kudos to you for breaking free!

Hi, I'm a hobbyist who works in watercolour or Krita, though I'm getting into gouache because I enjoy the feel of matte paint. I do mostly landscapes and people, I know my fundamentals but I haven't done much really good stuff with it yet. That said, here's a sample of my work! The clown is my profile picture, the Normanton Church is my banner.

I'm Michael, I'm from Omaha, Nebraska. I've done art for over 20 years, but never made a full career out of it. I'm a chef by day and a dad to two boys, and I do some gallery work and art fairs. I have had my biggest commercial success with live caricature. I'm currently at a place where I have time carved out for my art and enough money to get more education, so I'm throwing myself back in. I've worked in digital, watercolor, ink, marker, colored pencil, acrylics, spray paint and oils, and I try to keep a good balance of mediums in order to learn from each. I've done very little in the way of 3d, but I want to reacquainted myself.

Having time carved out for your art is the first big battle, and you've won! Kudos!

Greetings everyone! My name is Michael. Huge thanks to sir Stan & art teachers for creating an awesome community & space for art to grow & develop! I've been drawing for 4 years (self-taught) , but sadly I just begin to learn in a proper way/method recently. I'm truly interested in realism art (portrait & figure drawing) . Here are just my recent studies & wish you all have a great day!
