    How to be myself a teacher ????

    I know it wants work work and again work - I`m not afraid of it but my problem is: I`ve got no oportunity to attend art lessons or something similar no more and I`m not fully able to notice mistakes I`m making and there`s nobody to tell me what`s wrong. So the point is: I don`t want to get some bad habits. I`m planing to start doing some life drawing and so on (from life and also from reference pictures depends on actual possibilities ). Any advices or techinques from you guys ?? Or some books or any other resources about something similar?? And I`m also curious how are you doing this? Thanks for reading and answers--- maybe. hehe

    I'd also recommend starting a sketchbook in this forum, and posting to it frequently:

    Go to a museum, write down the names of the artists you like, do some sketches from their works too. Get one of those general books on art history with lots of pictures, write down the names of the artists you like. Find good pictures by those artists and copy them. Also draw from life every day.

    Yes I definitely will post some of the "works" to the crit. center and It`s good idea to start a sketchbook here. I`ve never done something like a studies of old masters and it seem to me like an exelent way to learn something-I will definitely try it. BUT in the critiq center I will have to post a photo of a drawn subject to get proper advices. And what about things a should pay more attention I mean like what`s more importante e.g. stroke quality, proportions....
    And Thank you armando,Nezumi Works and karmazon for answers.

    I suppose for now that it's good enough just to get everything in it's proper place. Just put the figures where they're supposed to be, make them take up the right amount of space in the picture. I said to select works that interest you, so that means that the image is telling you something, so when you copy pay attention to the things which call your attention and try your best to match their quality in your picture. In some picture the only thing worth copying maybe just the hands like with some of the stuff attributed to Leonardo, in another it maybe the total layout of the image without so much interest in the details like what Daumier does.
    Put most of your time in drawing from life, sometimes draw the details, sometimes the entire thing, and sometimes entire environments.

    I also had some kind of the same issue as you have. (but in another sphere), well, what may also help (other than a sketchbook here, which is an EXCELLENT idea), is just practice and it doesn't matter how many mistakes are there...just practice practice, practice, after a while you will find your mistakes yourself.
