Hey, let's start a newcomer's art chain!✨
Heya, my name's Zenith, nice to meet ya! I love the way this site looks already and I'm excited for what the future holds for it. Let's drop some of our art down in the replies and a little message introducing yourself if you want. Here are some of mine:
Hi! My name's Cameron, and I'm a writer and character designer. I'm hoping to make a comic revolving around these characters in the coming months and have recently purchased all the Marvel classes here on Proko. Any fans of Capcom games like Resident Evil, Street Fighter, or Marvel vs. Capcom in here? Sound off!
hey, my name is Berna. i am glad that i joined to this community. i'll learn much more! some of my drawings are here. digitals are from 1-2 years ago. i was focused on learning and experimenting. waiting for comments <3
I’m Chris and I’m a mini painter getting into 2D. Why? Good bit of burnout and a need to make a change. I’m tired of painting other people’s work and I can’t free hand to save my life. Plus you can’t really take a mini to paint everywhere. So here I am at literal square one looking to learn. I hope my occasional moments of negativity towards art doesn’t bother anyone too much, frustration and too much time to think will do that.
hello all, my name is Roana and I am from the Netherlands. As a child I did some drawing but gave up for number of reasons. A year ago I started drawing again. Started with pencils and paper but found I did more erasing then drawing. Went on to digital. And I love(d) it. Did a lot of tutorials and recently I made my own landscape illustration ( see photo). But I don’t have any knowledge of the fundamentals so I want to start over. I’m about to buy the drawing basics course but I am absolutely terrified. My problem is I am a perfectionist and really insecure . Someone who is to hard on myself ( probably like any artist) and don’t know how to change that. It is really holding me back. Any tips on how to be less hard on myself? However that being said I really wanna learn so I’m buying the course.
Great idea, Jedidiah! :) I'm new to the community but a long-time Proko (Show/Guests) & Stan fan. I'm probably a lot older than most members here and I've found that my art style has had to change a lot. I'd gone 100% digital for a while but now I'm freehanding traditional work, teaching myself to embrace working in styles and mediums that allow for.. .well, being older. lol My hands aren't steady and I don't see well, which is why I found digital a lot easier. But I MISSED traditional so much, so now I do both. :) Anyway, I use lots and lots of mediums and I do lots of styles because that's what makes me happy. Nice to meet eveyrone!
Hey there. I'm Maryam and here's some of my recent art. I'm excited to find like minded artists here ^^
Hi! I'm Franca, in my directionless twenties trying to study biology by day and illustration at night :)
Hi everyone, I’m Andy, been watching Proko every since I was a child, still am a child. I’m an art student that has won some awards such as Sony Picture this. Here are some of my works as well.
Two years ago after 40 years I retired as a tool engineer. I've wanted to learn how to draw since 1997 and starting taking pictures of things i liked so I would have something to draw. This morning I sat down and forced myself to actually draw something. So here is my first shot at it.
Hello, my name is Eduardo and I am interested in illustration, concept art and story boarding. I am here because I need some sense of community. These are my recent studies/pieces:
Howdy, y'all. Brand new to this community, but I've been doing SOME kind of art for at least 50 years. I lean heavily towards graphite, ink, and wood carving, but since I'm an art teacher I'm trying hard to up my color game as well. I've attached some of the works I've done over the years. Hope y'all have a great new year of it!
Hello, i am 13 years old, i got into art about 4 years ago after watching anime. I got better by drawing a lot but never actually studied. I just doodled all the time. Now i want to get a lot better at art and possibly make it a career. I am very happy to have found Proko! Here are some of my drawing, i haven't taken any coures yet so they'll get a lot better this year
Hi! My name is Joe. I'm a self-taught artist who goes through long stretches with lots of art and then similarly long stretches with no art. I am going to be taking the new Proko "Basics" course to try and see if I can build a better foundation from which I can get rid of the long stretches of no art, because I always feel like I don't have a firm enough grasp of drawing fundamentals to help me navigate my way to being a better artist. Hope to see some of you in that group! Here's a few (honestly all) of my pieces from this past year.
Asked for help
Hi, im Htinlin Arkar from Myanmar(Burma).Im 21 now.Since i was kid i always love drawing. At my teenage i didn't draw and wasted my life with games. About 2 years ago i realize my life and i decided to train to become a artist. In these 2 year i draw aleast 1 to 6 hours daily. I know i am progressing but it really slow and some didn't feel like improving at all.(studying head for about a year and i really can't invent head from imagination/ cant draw figure pose/ inconsistent proportion/line etc) I'm worrying my progress would be slow just like these years and couldn't make my living with drawing. Since i m not wealthy introverted high school drop out with no social connection,plus my country situation, i can't do anything other things.now i can depending on my family but not forever. So i tried to encourage myself to go out and ask for help. I really need suggestions or advices or help, anything, from you guys. I will try myself to follow to your ways. If possible can anyone mentor me through my art training.🙏🙏🙏
Hey, everyone! I want to try to be on here more. I currently run socials and shoot/edit videos for Proko. You might have even seen me in a couple livestreams here and there. I don't get to draw much anymore but DO get to take some photos every once in a while! Proko doesn't have any photography courses but an artist uses ALL the tools they have, right?? I shoot with a Lumix G7 and the 14-42mm kit lens. I just took up the hobby about a year ago and have been figuring it out as I go. I edit my photos in Adobe Lightroom, mostly pushing and pulling color or adding contrast and things of that nature. No structural Photoshop edits or anything here. I look forward to seeing more of everyone's work!
Hiiii I'm Piglet, I made an acc here a couple of days back. I love the owl house and like 90% of all my digital artworks are fanarts of/for it. I mainly did traditional and started digital during the lockdown, now I usually do my sketches and doodles tradtionally and the lineart and colouring digitally. Also I just started the first unit of @Alex Huneycutt's curriculum! Here's some of my art:
