    Charlie's new Sketchbook and aims

    Hi guys - newbie to CA here

    I'm Charlie, I'm 20, I live in London, I've grown up with an interest in art and with the inspiring nature of this website and the lending of a tablet from an old friend that interest has blossomed into a love.
    So for a few years I've been a bit of a lost soul, but now that this burning passion has reared its beautiful face I know I want to, no, need to be an Illustrator and Concept artist.

    I have no formal training in art but hope to be going to art school next year.

    My aim until then is to learn and practice as efficiently as possible (main topics being anatomy, life drawing and anything else you guys can suggest)
    I'm aiming to do 1 painting a day, I've attached my first 2 and will continue to update this sketchbook as often as possible.

    So if I could get some advice on how to make the most of practice that would be great, maybe some techniques and ideas of what to draw / paint.
    With some help from you guys I'd like to make every day as productive as possible before going to art school and stay an active member of the community for the rest of my artistic career.

    Thanks a bunch,
    Charlie.

    Hi, hope see new works here, I like the atmosphere of the first paint and some good brush strokes, except the face isn't well enough made, in my opinion Keep it dude

    Thanks for the post
    Yeah I'm not too confident with faces yet. I think that, along with hands, is what im going to concentrate on for now

    Cool stuff, man. definitely a nice mood on the first one. I like his torso, muscles are nicely defined. Same goes for the second piece.
    So if youre not confident with faces, lets see some studies

    I really like the first piece...I agree with everyone else that the face could be refined...but still love the mood of it...and I like the new figure piece you did, especially the legs...I can't critique much since I am starting out myself...but look forward to seeing more...makes me itch to get a tablet so I can try out digital painting too!

    Keep posting!

    Nice work man!

    Uhm anyway in terms of studying, antatomy, and well everything. First things first, if you want to learn it takes a lot of time and a lot of effort, and the most important things are often times the most overlooked ones. What I mean by that is, the fundamentals, anatomy, construction, colour...that kind of stuff. It's important to have a fundamental knowledge, which comes from studying Bridgman, Loomis, Hapton, Bammes...whatever else you can get your hands on...uhm do lots of stuff from life...if you can attend a figure drawing class I'm sure that would help...I've never been to one so I can't really attest to it. But paint simple still lives and such. All that kind of studying really helps when you want to build forms from your mind. Anyway yeah...just keep doing it over and over...do the studies, put in the time and you'll go far. You're already doing great by the way...just let's see more!
