    Do you have a tablet / photoshop etc? If you do, have you tried a still life yet?

    Hey surrealitycheck, thanks for posting!

    Yes, I do have PS/Illust, and I also happened to pick up a (small, think its A6) tablet the other day. Ive tried using it alittle and I actually feel more "natural" using the tablet than a pencil.

    However, it feels like I get ahead of myself if I go digital without learning the basics in drawing. Or atleast thats the impression I get from listening to people on CA and elsewhere.
    I dont really understand how values work yet. Or I do in theory, but I cant get it to look right. And I have problems seeing where light comes from if I dont use a clear reference. Not to mention my lack of knowledge when it comes to anatomy.
    Taking this into consideration, I feel like I wont get very far with a tablet, no?

    Remember, this is just what I heard and feel. I have no real first hand experience, so feel free to correct me.



    Anyway, decided to start some Loomis studies. Will update with results later.

    Just keep on keeping on. You might want to check out "The Natural Way to Draw" it's basically a guidbook to drawing with exersizes and really structured lessons. It's intense but I think it would be of extrodinary benefit to you. It's pretty cheap. 10 dollars or so on Amazon. There's also "Keys to Drawing" which I have not read but my drawing teacher raves about. Might be worth picking up. It's good to see that you're already tackling people. A book I read that helped me a lot with drawing when I was younger (ha. That makes me sound terribly old. I am 18! ahh!) was Drawing on the Right side of the brain by Betty Edwards. It doesn't so much teach you how to draw as it helps you to understand how to see (which will improve your drawing). Don't be afraid of doing anything wrong, just keep throwing things down and you'll keep improving. And yes! Check out Posemaniacs.com. Have fun with it.

    And still life: A still life is just a setup of objects, can be anything, usually just everyday things in your house. You could do, for example, a desk still life, just a stapler, a roll of tape, and some post it notes, or whatever else you like, and draw. Traditionally still lifes consist of fruit or flowers

    Just two weeks? You got some talent man. Keep practicing and studying every day and you'll do fine!

    I'll definitely keep an eye on this one.

    Thanks for the kind comments everyone!
    And yeah, im trying to do some posemaniac quickies every day. It helps me not to worry too much about what I draw, and just draw. Good practice.

    Spaggen, like your Bridgman studies! Looking awesome.
    Btw, where in sweden do you live? Im from Småland originally.

    Wow, this is really inspiring to me, my story is almost identical to yours. Ive been trying to make games for like 5 years and now at the age of 21 i decided the only job that will make me truly happy every day doing it, is concept art. I have a lot of the same questions you do, but there one above all else that keeps passing through my mind, "How long will it be before im good enough to get paid for this". Im 21 now, but i suck, so what happens now? Work my ass off for 5 years and see how it goes? what if 5 years isn't enough? what if it takes 10?

    It might seems like a funny question to ask, but in all seriousness if someone spent every waking hour dedicated to getting good, how long until that's person was good enough to get hired? Is it worth working a minimum wage job for 10 years just to have the change of happiness in the future?
