    I need to phone the Job Center...
    Done. Apparently the meetings aren't all at 9:15, it's just that the later ones (10:40) have been fully booked for the next month or so. I wonder why...

    Anyway, they're going to try and fit me in one of those meetings instead. It means I'll have to wander around Port for 40 minutes after the bus arrives, but it's better than showing up 55 minutes late to an hour long meeting as I'd have had to do if I was going to the 9:15. :p:

    Morning. :smile:

    I've never stepped into a Job Centre before, nor do I know what one looks like. I don't think I'm even entitled to use the services there yet (since I'm not a British citizen)?

    Well, technically, mine is also recreational on my part. The talk of getting it possibly published is one of conjecture and wishful thinking, nothing more. :o: :tongue: - I would like to see yours when you're ready. :smile:

    Oh no, only a few captions would suffice, nothing finished. I just enjoy the notion of exchanging and discussing artwork, especially when we're working on something similar. :smile:

    I can't even draw a head well enough, so I can't really do a manga T_T The hair is fine enough (although really generic and flat) but the eyes, mouth, nose and ears always look horrible :| I'm alright at profile though, since I only have to draw one of everything :P 3/4 probably gives me the most trouble :|

    Well I should be able to get something up tomorrow, I can't today I don't have access to a scanner till tomorrow sorry.

    I used to be crap at drawing actually but then just started drawing in my spare time out of boredom and I slowly got better :grin: . I taught myself most the manga / anime stuff just by drawing some of my favourite characters from shows.

    I've been focusing on looking at tutorials (mainly checking all the new ones posted on DeviantArt every day) to try and learn some techniques. I'm focusing on hands mostly at the moment. I've done a couple of full-body drawings but they're not that great. I'd scan them in, but I have no scanner :giggle: I need to get a 3-in-1 Printer before I go to Uni.

    I've always been reasonably and/or naturally good at drawing. I think the first instance of this was during kindergarden when the class surrounded my drawing, and the teacher gave me a gold star. :o: - After that, I believe it's mainly down to practice. Drawing, like any skill, can be developed and honed.

    In regard to drawing manga-styled characters, this went against everything I learnt at art school, requiring some time to adjust, but it's been fun. :smile:

    Looking forward to seeing something tomorrow. Curiously, have you considered purchasing a graphic tablet?

    Bah I hate drawing hands normal or manga style I have always found them difficult for some reason.I have always rather just teach myself for some reason though my art teacher always got annoyed by this because it wasn't the "proper" way of learning.

    Ugh, forget deviantART. Look into anything by Giovanni Civardi. :yes: - Nice to see you're expressing an interest in drawing, LLOT. :smile:

    I bought one a while back, actually I think I posted my complaints on here about it coming a week late :grin: . It is rather good but I have always rather drawing from hand for some reason. I use it now and then but I felt doing this by hand.

    I myself have very little talent at anything to begin with but if I teach myself something I can pick it up a lot quicker than most people. Though if someone else tries to teach me it I don't tend to do so good.

    But this for some reason always makes it look like I don't do much work so most of my teachers are always very surprised when I do good. I still remember my math teachers face from my christmas exams when I was one of the only 2 people to get an A when he had thought I would only get a C :grin:

    I'm not going to buy any books :giggle:

    And I've always been interested in drawing, I've just never been any good XD One of my GCSE Graphic Design pieces was essentially me copy/pasting (via drawing) Hokusai's "Great Wave off Kanagawa", and a couple others (I think I also used Red Fuji/South Wind Clear Sky).

    I can relate to this because it took a while for me to adjust too. The tactility of traditional media is evidently lost with a tablet. Nevertheless, after much insistence, I'm finding myself using a tablet for much of my work nowadays. Prior to going digital, I used to paint with oils at large sizes (had to stand and climb ladders), thus the nature of my work has changed. This has been enforced by working commercially. In advertising and publishing, a digital mockup is far more practical and accepted. The other principle advantage is that you're not limited by how much detail you can implement, and that the handy Apple+Z (or Ctrl+Z) is a godsend. :tongue:

    I myself have very little talent at anything to begin with but if I teach myself something I can pick it up a lot quicker than most people. Though if someone else tries to teach me it I don't tend to do so good.

    But this for some reason always makes it look like I don't do much work so most of my teachers are always very surprised when I do good. I still remember my math teachers face from my christmas exams when I was one of the only 2 people to get an A when he had thought I would only get a C :grin:
    I've never been one to conform to rulings, nor was I a particularly good student. I'm something of a free spirit that can interpret what's required of me. At school, I think the general consensus was that I was highly capable, and perhaps even bordering on exceptional in the arts, but an awful student to teach. :o:
