It has been a whole semester since I started my blog which is the project for Multimedia Journalism Class. When i had to choose the topic I did not think a lot. Drawing came first to my mind and I went on with it. So I named my blog Learn To Draw in 14 Weeks.
Since I was a little kid I loved drawing. My parents never took me to the art school. All I did was practice and pay attention to the details. I had tons of different drawing supplies at home. New set of paints was the gift I was expecting as a kid for Christmas and my parents were always surprising me. But it all finished in the eighth grade when drawing classes were given for the last time before the high school. I chose the real sciences class and all my time I spent on math, chemistry and physics. Time went so fast that only after seven years I realized: “Wow! I used to draw and I was good at it!”.
My dream profession was an Interior Designer. My majors in university right now are Economics and Journalism and Mass Communication. Not even close to my dream profession, right? Now I am drawing for the blog, reading articles about design and feel that if someone really has a passion for something it cannot just go away.
In my final blog I want all my followers to see what I have achieved for 14 weeks. So far I wrote 12 blog posts, interviewed eight people, shot seven videos and drew a lot of cute faces and animals. Obviously writing a blog is very enjoyable. You share your personal experience with the rest of the world and meet people who do the same.Starting drawing was not hard at all, even exciting. I found an amazing website with drawing tutorials which is called Drawspace.
My Drawing Challenge is not finishing on the 14th week. I started drawing so I can continue doing it and finally make my dream come true. I am sure that I never lost my love to drawing and I still have the skill. Most exciting for me was when I needed to draw a cartoon face considering the proportions and in the beginning I shouldn’t have used the ruler. When I used it later to see if I drew it proportionally, I was happy to find out that the distance was the same, even though I drew it without a ruler.
Now I will have to say that this is my final blog post and I really enjoyed the journey I went through. I will continue drawing and following my dream and I think everyone should do that. You are the best only in what you love to do.
