    Good start. Hopefully you have a job to keep you financially stable, but give you free time to hone your skill. Remember, keep drawing from life, start on some gesture drawings, and life drawings as well. Good luck ;D

    Thank you. Ive always been slightly better with colored pencils than I have for other mediums, plus I enjoy drawing animals.

    Like those eye studies. Keep those studies going/coming! Really focus on the basics first. You may even have to focus on them for several years before you can really jump into what you want to do.

    Just stay busy, know what you want and the heavens will follow!

    @ jathrip, I intend to do them daily.

    @ Peetar, thank you for your encouragement, I will do studies daily whenever I have free time. Hopefully it wont take many years to iron out the basics, but if thats what it takes so be it.

    Alright, im back after some medical complications. This time with a single focus, developing the skills to work as an environmental artist for games. Will be doing a lot of traditional art because that can only help me, and 3D modeling. Here is a time lapse of the last 3 months for me for 3D modeling these are all my own works, no tutorials.

    Hey there,

    Nice studies! Do more I'm a big fan of Bridgman books when it comes to anatomical studies.

    3D wise, it's very cool to see your rapid progress. That's some really good hard-surface modeling you've got. Keep up the good work!

    To answer your email question - I don't think doing 2D studies will take your focus away from 3D at all. A solid artistic eye will benefit you greatly in both 2D and 3D art. Drawing is a great tool for understanding form, proportion, and all that good stuff. Painting will help you with colors and hand-painted textures should you go that route. The ability to concept will help giving life to your 3D pieces, especially when you are not going directly from photo references.

    @Grace, thanks! Hopefully I can pull off a similar level of rapid progress with traditional drawing fundamentals, but Im not going to hold my breath since there are so many areas to work on such as composition, lighting etc. I will draw at least a couple hours everyday. Also in my set of drawing pencils in different hard soft ratings from 6B to 4H I find I am always using B, and just applying varying degrees of pressure, I have no idea when to switch from one pencil to another.
