    I´d like to post a question, I´m curious about what you guys think what amount of time you spent drawing each week, like 10 hours a week, an hour a day, half an hour a day you name it. Just out of curiousity and I think this thread is the one for that.

    well for me it's totally random because I'm busy as hell (at the moment, at least!)

    but usually I find around 2-4 hours a day every day of the week. a fair amount of these hours are spent doodling anatomy and creatures on the edges of my homework assignments (LOL) but about 63% of my drawing time is spent on photoshop cs4

    how about yourself?

    i do a lot of drawing for some of my courses, at the moment visual product design for example. I don't have too much time for personal drawings, at most 60 minutes on average I think.

    Ah nice to hear 2-4 hours a day is alot! If drawing at school counts Ill probably draw about 3 hours a day. 1-2 hours in school and 1-2 hours at home, but the drawings I make in school are mostly purely random. And I dont think I learn alot from those.

    Clockwork you spend 60 minutes on personal drawings, but you drawnfor school alot I assume?

    Wow, I am surprised at the amounts you guys spend, I only spend maybe about 1-3 hours every week on drawing. But that's because I didn't pick art at school.

    I would set the bar for 'personal drawings' really low, doodling in classes also counts. Every drawing movement improves your skill, after all. Lately I think don't really come to that anymore except in the weekends.

    Dennis, have you watched all the fzdschool video's? If not, do so. They're awesome.
    I have not been drawing seriously for more than a year either. In classes we make a very different kind of drawings, since it's all product design. I would say it helps, but not as much as just drawing for real.

    Just check my sketchbook.(I've updated the link to a different thread). Look at the time the thread started, that's when I got serious.

    That was literally my starting point.

    I wouldn't call it literally, since it's about images

    Ye you started your sketchbook a year back, and ofcourse you didn't know alot, but on the other hand you knew alot to. I thought you really meant drawing, I've never been seriously drawn since 2 months ago. But when people ask me how long I've drawn for I tell them my whole life, surely you drew before, like dragons, trains things like that? Because it's as good as impossible to not have drawn and be able to do what you did on the first few posts in your sketchbook.

    PS: Yes, Clockwork I think I saw every single FZDschool video, maybe I missed 3 or 4 though

    oh no of course not. I don't think it's possible to have never drawn in life.

    By starting point I meant the start of me going into concept art. Before that I was probably one of those fan boys you see all over deviantart.

    aha okay, glad we cleared that up hahaha alright. I got another question I'm 16 so I can go to university in 2 years but I'm quite confused considering my choice of study. I know I'd like to become a concept artist or illustrator or something in the entertainment design industry, but there is no such study as concept art I looked at industrial design because that's what Feng Zhu's school focuses on. But Industrial design as a study focuses on coming up with items and actually making them for the selling purpose. But I don't want to actually create the things I draw, way to complicated for me So what do you guys think is a good study or do you know any places in the world where I can study " concept art" or something like Feng Zhu's school. Feng Zhu's school is pretty expensive plus living there etc. but the money is not what's keeping me back. I really want to study for a few years and join a club for students ( Im not sure what this is called in english) and live the student life, and I don't want to miss that part of my life by just doing a one year study in Singapore. So if you know a study that comes close, or somewhere you can actually study industrail design with the focus on the entertainment industry that would be great!
