Hello hope this is somewhat the right place to post this if not im sorry ^^

Anyways Ive been doing art for some time now but only a few peaces of art, just some random stuffs from my head but when I look at all of you guys and you can make like perfect paintings of people and other random cool stuff from like any angle or position Im just wondering how do you start becoming pro? ^^ practice I guess but how? do you like paint people from real life (and photo references) a lot and other random objects and materials?

There is no cool school around where I live it seems like so have to do self studies just want some help to get on the right track as I have no Idea and feel somewhat confused and lost

Have also ordered some massive black dvds and stuff hope they will come handy
