JustME by Doctor-Pencil My name is Rick Fortson and I've been in Real Estate Sales and Appraising for over 27 years. In October of 2008, I started drawing again after a 30 YEAR time out! I never drew portraits before, but I oil painted and drew landscapes, and various objects as a teenager in the mid-to-late 70's. SEE THAT WORK FOLDER HERE: doctor-pencil.deviantart.com/g… I could never get past deciding WHAT I wanted to draw, so I rarely did. Through a series of motivating factors, I decided to buy some drawing pencils in October of 2008. I started with my kids, then moved on to celebrities. I believe we make "Progress through Practice". See some examples of my progress here: doctor-pencil.deviantart.com/g…

Now that I draw people, it's no longer WHAT do I want to draw, but WHO, so I never get stuck trying to first decide WHAT to draw! I'm 100% self taught. I always just seemed to realize to myself that I could draw if I wanted to. Weird huh? :D:D

Check out my DAUGHTER Maggie's Amazing Portrait Photography! She is a very gifted artist and is SO creative! She takes the kind of photos that actually makes me want to draw people I don't even know! I've said all along, I am inspired to draw FIRST by a great photograph, and THEN by the subject. When I have BOTH, I hear background music!

Hello,long time since last checked with you and you probably don't remember me but I do because back in time you made me somehow happy and convinced me to start drawing again ( so it was when you were considering to start video tutorials on drawing and then I connected with you,we talked and you actually uploaded your first videos on drawing on youtube).I've been far away from deviantart for the past 2 years and this night I was watching Castle S0706 and in the end of the serie I heard a song that I loved from the very first seconds of it so I searched for it and for my very surprise the first results of the lyrics was Andrew Belle-In my veins..Once I saw this my reaction was like "Woah,this unique song is Rick's son Andrew" So when his name popped first I knew I dont have to search for the song anymore because I recognized his voice(have listened to couple of his songs) and I was 100 % sure it's him.This happened literally 10 mins ago,so I logged in deviantart I decided to write a comment on your page.I see you have new,amazing drawings and you are doing well as you always did.So I just wanted to say-thank you and thanks to Andrew for making me smile and making me happy one more time.Keep going like this !
