My name is Andrew,I'm from Romania and I decided a month ago that I wanna become a comic book artist or even a concept artist.I've always had talent at drawing ever since I can remember,the problem is that I didn't work at it to improve.I would start drawing for a while and then forget about it,the years passed by and now I'm 23.I still have a bit of skill but I'm nowhere near a professional standard.For the average person I guess my drawings seem decent but for pro's I think I'm above average.I got 4.5 gb of books about drawing,Loomis,Hogarth,Bridgman,Villpu and others.I also have around 30 gb of video tutorials from Villpu,Gnomon.The thing is that there are so many of them and I don't know on which one to focus on.I've seen most people tell beginners to study Loomis so I started with him.I've seen others mention some of their favorite artists for the experienced members to get an idea at what level the beginners thrive to get.
Jack Kirby-I love his art(who doesn't?),it's classic and he's a legend
Bruce Timm-has a very simple yet classy art,it reminds me of movies from the 30's and 40's
Marko Djurdjevic- is an inspiration since he's self taught and look at the level he is right now,it's fantastic.
Ariel Olivetti-has some crazy anatomy that I love
Mike Mignola's- is incredible,his imagination is something else and his gothic style with the great use of shadows just amazes me
Clayton Crain- his run on Ghost Rider is on a whole other level from everybody else
Those are the ones I can think about right now even though I left out a lot of artists.
I started drawing the head from the Loomis book so I'll post my drawings and a couple of older ones I did a couple of years ago.What I'm looking for is advice,and recommendations of books that I should start off with or if I should keep it up with Loomis.
