Drawing has been something I aspired to do as long as I can remember. I tried various mediums of art when I was in high school, but drawing always scared me because I never thought I could do it, or do it well enough for me.
In March 2006, I started doing art modeling. During the next 3 years I was around a lot of artists drawing and teachers talking about drawing. I tried to find a class to take for beginning drawing, but never found one that fit my budget and schedule. So, in May 2009 I decided to just dive in and try doing life drawing. I chose one of the life drawing groups I posed for, one which I felt the most comfortable being a novice drawer.
