Hello art family! Y'all might remember my 2016 thread, where I focused on making a habit of drawing every day. 2017 was wild and I decided against a thread here, but I have continued that art streak through this year with a slight change - painting and sculpting was allowed to sustain that miniatures habit. I'm getting a bit of a headstart with my 2018 thread! I'd love to learn some fancy traditional art school basics, and I think a lot of these things transfer over to most any type of art, like mini painting and sculpting. I see lots of friends here talking about color, lighting, and MORE CONTRAST, and I think we should check those cool things out! When I start a new subject, I will list (but not link) books, websites, or other references so you can follow along if you'd like. Mori's Suggested Learning List! 1. The Learning Mindset - -
Hey all! This thread will be about my sculpting journey. I hope that by showing the time and effort it takes it pursue an art, others would be excited about trying it without getting discouraged by the climb up.

Some days might have some cool stuff, but many will probably be like, "Oh man. I sculpted a lot of fur today. A. Lot." Anyways. Hopefully y'all will get some enjoyment out of it. Here's to day 1 (tomorrow)! Comments and praise are appreciated, but please give critiques too!

â€œThey always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.â€ - Andy Warhol 2015 was a really big year of emotional recovery for me. It's taken several years, but I truly felt that change last year. So with that progress in mind, I decided I wanted more.
