Hello, I've recently picked up drawing after a long time of admiring and wishing that I could draw well. I plan to draw a lot (I've been drawing for 7-8 hours a day every day for the past week) but I don't really know what I'm doing and have no idea how to further get better.
I really want to to have a career in this field (a concept artist for games would probably be my ideal dream job) and will work my hands down to the bone to make it happen, I'm 20 years old and probably have the drawing skills of an uncoordinated 5 year old. It may sound silly to be trying to get into this field at this age with no prior experience but I've always admired people who could draw and used to spend a lot of my time just watching people draw on youtube and just kind of strolled through highschool without any real ambitions for a career.
So I'm hoping to find some tips, pointers, directions on how to get better and get ready for a career. I know it'll be hard and I'll have to work at it a lot. I've been basically just using a #2 pencil and a notebook and drawing everything I can see.
