Hi Dillon,
Hope this site and this journal will fire you up so you’ll practice a lot!
And yes, the ‘chicken scratch’ is always waiting round the corner to creep back into my work haha!
Re your photo’s: you don’t need a state of the art camera, it’s mostly the light that does it. I have taken good pictures with both my phone and my simple digital camera. What helps a lot is using a strong (daylight) lamp and no flash. Simply put your drawing next to a window, light with the lamp from the other side, and you taking the photo in the middle. If you have an easel, make sure the drawing is straight up/vertical.
Good luck!
