    Draw, sleep, repeat? You forgot "eat" in there haha.

    Post some work in here and I can give you some feedback if you want. From looking at your tc entry and your da, I'd say that Bridgman will do you a lot of good. Also study some colour theory and do some colour studies from either photos or life.

    Anyhow, just update this sketchbook regularly and draw everyday for as much as you can and you will be doing concept art in no time.

    I suppose eating is kind of important too

    Thanks for the feedback! I'm definitely keen on starting some work with Bridgman, his drawing style is incredible and I love to be able to draw figures so fluidly. As for colour theory I have no idea what to do haha, should I try paint things from life and that would make me naturally pick it up?

    For colour theory huevaluechroma.com is very good, but a bit boring and some parts difficult read. If you can sit through it though there is a TON of fantastic info.

    Other than that, yeah still lifes will help you to absorb information on how colour works.

    Don't forget to apply the knowledge after doing a study--for Bridgman try some views of the limb or whatever you are studying from your imagination afterwards, or for a colour study try a painting with the same palette.

    When I started doing Bridgeman studies I did so quite a lot like you are, with an emphasis on copying the cool drawing. It is important in your studies to also remember what the drawing was trying to do. In this case he is trying to show anatomy proportion and gesture. You are copying each pencil mark, but you are missing the forest for the trees. Worry a little less about adding shading and skin tones to the drawings and really focus on trying to get the proportions right and understand what the structure is doing. I am excited to see your next one.
