    This is a great list. I completely agree. In fact I liked it so much I passed this link onto my buds over at DA (who knows if any of them listen though...)

    I need help with color theory. I've just got out of college (for illustration) and we never really covered color theory (I know crazy huh?) so do you happen to know of any really great color theory books out there?

    All good tips but I think #9 should be rewritten. Don't force a style and it will develop on its own. Give yourself time and your style will come to you. By working on the other 9 tips your style will come through.

    I think people may misread 9 as to you need to develop ...ie forcing it, instead of realizing working on the other (even though the body explains it further) tips will cause it to develop.

    Wonderful tips! I think I knew these subconsciously all along, since I'm aiming at least four of these at once (color theory, perspective, critiques and finding my own style). It's such a great help! I wish it didn't take up so much time, though.

    Spot on advice. the impact of line quality can not be understated either. I would also suggest adding step 6. Perspective to every one of these steps. Understanding perspective is crucial and using it effectively is the hard(and fun) part, but it will definitely improve any artists work dramatically. I read somewhere that Loomis also suggested this skill should be a priority for all artist to get under their belt as early on in their education as possible.

    Hi Shrunken,

    Thanks for the helpful tips. I'm doing pencil sketching, and yes, I'll have to draw and draw... more and more.

    To become an artist, I need a great deal of patience.
