Hello, I am a woman, I am 62 years old. I joined sketchclub some time ago, discovered digital painting and liked it very much. I have not done art before. I am married and I have two grown up sons. Identical twins, one is working at the university on black holes and stuff and the other one is, from birth, severely handicapped and just comes home for weekends now. I Iive in the Netherlands where we have good healthcare, no matter what your income is. In the past year I realised more and more how lucky I am.
I dislike the focus on competition in sketchclub. Maybe it is just a cultural difference. A very American thing. There is no the best this or that, especially not in art.
I do not answer comments or harts much, that does not mean I do not appreciate them, I read all the comments and I am very gratefull for every comment and every hart I receive. I try to thank by commenting sincerely and by giving out any harts I get.
I do not mind answering questions about how things work here in sketchclub. For the A home group I made a list of links to tutorials in alphabet order, all short tutorials. Here is a link http://app.sketchclub.com/sketch/10421591 The info is in the description of the sketch.
There are many artists here in sketchclub that I really admire, I can not name them all so I will just give you the names of some of them, in no particular order. King Raymondo He makes me smile and take life less serious Baltus He makes my busy mind quiet, a second of calm, wonderfull Dr. G He is one of very few artists that sketch ordinary people, the not so pretty, the not so special and he does this in a way that is absolutely magical, a great artist! There are many more artists here that I admire, but then my profile would be very long ;- p
I am on sketchy app too My name there is aike potman I do not like sketches that are not sketches at all but just messages. I block artists that upload these.
