    Practice structure needed.

    Hey first off i just want to say thanks in advance for all of your help, this site has been really helpful.

    Alright so i have been practicing for about 40 hours a week (trying to increase that but work and etc) lately and i know i am getting better in what i am practicing. my usual patter is: do some blind contour warm up, more right brain training. I have a refrence book with many poses of humans that i draw from, then i use an art book that has anatomy help with a skeletal and muscle structure refrence. I will draw some free poses. Work on faces. Do full detailed drawing from refrence picture or from any object in my room or actually my room. Mostly things of this nature. I have to get some programs working before i start digital again. I really need to know what i should practice and how. Also draw my brother sometimes.
    I feel like i am not going as far as i should be. seems like i am stuck and need to branch out in how i practice any advice would be just great.

    OH! and if it helps my goal is to become a video game concept artist (hopefully 3 years xxD) with a specailization in character design.

    Try to start a sketchbook in the forum, and keep updating with stuff you are doing, it will be easier for people to help you if they see your drawings and where you are having problems. I hope that makes sense.

    I think you can change the size when you scan it, if not, photoshop cs2 is now free on adobe website, download it and look for tutorials about image size, its really easy.

    Also, you need to work on basic skills such as resizing art, adjusting colors, knowing the difference between different file formats. I know users here will keep saying that you should do traditional and you can't learn digital bla bla bla, but you can't work in any industry if you can't digitize and present your art properly. Those are basic essential skills and the information is easily available on the web.
