    Hello Tasser, and welcome to CA,
    Talent is over-rated my friend. Hard work and perseverance will get you farther.
    Take a look at these free (my favorite price!) e-books courtesy of Briggsy.
    They will certainly provide you with something to chew on..
    Your goals are clearly defined, and that's great. Getting the discipline when your young is key. I really fu...screwed around when I was younger...I'm getting it now that I'm old and grey, and somewhat retarded.
    Good luck!

    Thank you very much! I Knew the thread with those free ebooks. But there is one problem: I really don't know where to start because there are so much of them

    CA.org is the best way for me to learn, and the crazy thing is, that I'm learning here in some different ways. I learn to improve my art, my english and my discipline. I am no guy who's dropping everything off if I can't get the best results fastly. But I don't do enough for those things I like and I really need to change that.

    And when I am here in the forums I get this "WOW - that's so amazing"-effect like every day or every second.

    greets,
    Flo
    I LOVE CA.org ;-)

    Hi Tasser,
    In the free ebook thread, the anatomy books by George Bridgman are very helpful to any artist studying anatomy. The Loomis book is a good one also.
    Those alone should really give you enough to work with for the time being.

    It's great that you're setting goals for yourself. Just remember to do as much as you possibly can; you can't go easy on yourself at all. I'd recommend starting with a book like Fun With a Pencil or Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. Also get a figure drawing book such as Bridgman's complete guide to drawing from life as a sort of drawing bible to study from. Anatomy will be very important to learn, as will perspective (check out the book Drawing Essentials too for sure)

    In addition to that, just draw from life all the time and from imagination. Try doing a couple self portraits every week; try constructing figures from boxes, study master's works and copy them. Finally, apply what you learn into your imaginative drawing. Good luck man.

    heyho again :-)

    The Bridgeman ebooks on archieve.com are resticted. "the human machine" is restricted and the other one in top of the free ebooks thread is broken. I'll try another pdf-viewer, got sumatraPDF but i think its not the viewer. I'll give it a try. Which PDF reader are you using? I hate the adobe reader, because it's sooo slow.

    Thanks Jeremy, I'm just sketching and painting when I am at school, at home, on the phone sometimes, when I sit down in the train to go to my girlfriend or when I am tired but aint tired enough to go to bed.

    Thanks, I'll keep it all up. It's time for a change and I need to get better.

    greets,
    Flo

    Well, people have covered anatomy but I do have this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKITQ6aR020
    He just talk in that one but he has some helpful tips in other videos, there’s some good stuff on perspective. I don’t know in which numbers he covers perspective but it will probably be good to make your way through them anyway.

    Just be a drawing madman, never ask yourself if you want to draw but ask yourself what you would like to draw today. Don’t give yourself an option to get out if it

    I need a lot practice and I need some good ebooks or workshops for that stuff.

    What do you think should I learn in the next time? Anatomy, okay. But other stuff? Don't really know. I have the time to practice all day so that's not the problem. I need to know WHAT I have to do. Third day of tryin' portraits. I'm getting better but It isn't enough for me.

    What do you think about mentoring here at CA.org? I think It would be a lot easier in the beginning with a mentor.

    Hope you like my stuff in any way.

    Greets,
    Flo
