    Any advice for preparing for the concept art industry?

    Hello, I am a 17-year-old student who would like to become a concept artist.
    As of right now, I am starting my final year of A-levels, so I thought it would be the best time to ask for some feedback and advice on what I can do to help me.
    Any form of feedback truly appreciated.
    Below is examples of my work.

    You have lots of speedpainty (if that's a word) type of stuff that doesn't really show understanding of the basic fundamentals. If I were you I would forget about painting for a while and focus on just drawing and nailing down your fundamentals. I'd recommend starting with perspective. Feng Zhu talks about importance of drawing a lot in his videos so you can check them out. Good luck!

    Following on from what Anton said, there are lots of perspective study resources available. Some you might have heard of that I've found helpful are How to Draw by Scott Robertson (It's a real slog at times but it covers all of the absolute bedrock prerequisites of becoming a concept artist, not the least of which being attaining a confident grasp of perspective) and drawabox.com, which is a free tutorial site that uses a lot of the theories discussed in HTD and is kind of an extension of it. If you can really drill in an understanding of the information from those, then I'd say that would be a good start!

    Hi Anton, thank you for your feedback. I am grateful for you pointing out my lack of fundamental basics, i will continue to focus my time on areas like perspective. Again, thank you for the feedback.
