    My name is Frederic i'm 24 years, i life in Belgium

    And i follow the forums for about a year now, This site is a huge insperationsource for me... I see here AMAZING stuff...

    currently I have no art education or something like that,
    butt I really want to learn it, I mean Really Really WANT IT, I don't care if it takes 10 years or longer! I know when you do something that you will have to learn for the rest of your life

    For the moment, i have a sketchbook at home and i try to draw every free time. It are just sketches and doodles, nothing special butt i like it and its fun to do, i also mess around in painter and photoshop with the mouse, buut i feel thats to early

    In my mind I see a lot of things that i want to draw, but when i start, I just cant finnish a drawing.

    So i have a few questions...
    Where do I start?
    I think to try to find an artschool, when a new schoolyear starts, so september '07
    How i Build things up?
    Howlong draw you guys a day?

    My goals: Enter my imagegation, draw my own creazy world, exploring art

    Thanx for reading

    Here is where to start. Get you sketchbook and draw cubes, cylinder, cones and egg shapes. Once you are used to drawing those, walk around and draw simple drawings of everything you see using those forms. For example, a truck would look like cubes and cylinders. Do that until you start to see the world in those forms. Check back when you get there.
    Whatever you do, don't look at my Sketchbook and Painting Thread!

    Hello Coldfusion! You might be interested in the link in my sig called "Concept Art 101". Cheers!
    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    Some museums allow you to sketch the paintings in there, using dry media like charcoal, colored pencils etc. When you study a famous painting long enough to draw it, you can learn some things about how it was done. Also, the museum may even have drawing classes you can join, so there would be an instructor who can answer questions.
