I think this sketch was done somewhere in the first quarter of last year. This was when I was really starting to consider art (drawing, painting) as a career.
Since I was a little kid I've always gravitated toward the pencil and loved drawing, but for some reason I never stuck with it. The few art classes I did take in the past, I did not give them much attention or importance.
It wasn't until about a year and a half ago (or less) that I suddenly had a strong urge to just start creating things.
Lets see if I can stick with it :)
This is just a quick practice sketch of a baboon. I think from a picture I found in the illustrated library of nature.
