My name is Nouredine, I’m 31 year old, married and have a lovely 11 months daughter. I’m a mathematician, have a full-time job, which means I don’t have allot of free time to draw.
I started drawing as a child as soon as I was able to hold a pen. I chose not to work in the art business for several reasons but I often regret that, and I still have dreams of living from my passion.
In the last months I felt the need to take drawing more seriously. I mainly draw during my travel to work in the train (I opened a journal with my train sketches: here ).
My objective in art is to be able to draw anything in front of me (from life) with as much accuracy as possible while keeping a loose (sketchy) style (I don’t necessarily like rendering, which I think is one of my week points).
My favorite drawing subject is portraits. My dream is to be able to draw any body that I crosses my path with a minimum number of lines and a maximum level of likeness (like Klimt and Sargent sketches).
I subscribed to this website after I watched some of Matt videos and I really liked them, specially the members critique. I’m going through the step by step course now and I’m loving it.
Excuse my for my bad English, and I hope you all the best.
