    Do all of Seedlings assignments, read and practice anatomy, read and practice perspective, do oils/acrylics/digitals and everything that goes, take life drawing classes. Always carry a sketchbook with you (and use it, carrying around is not enough!)

    If you want to draw characters and creatures then you should draw alot of people and animals naturally. Once you understand how these work you can begin inventing your own crazy believable designs.

    Here's Seedlings thread;

    Here's community activities and there's tutorials here;

    In order to do this, you have to be great at Design, illustration, painting, sculpting, ...the visual arts.

    Proffessional concept artists do A LOT more than just design creatures and characters all day. for most of them, concept art is just a "day job".

    "If one advances confidently in the direction of
    his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he
    has imagined, he will meet with a success
    unexpected in common hours."
    - H.D. Thoreau

    Awww, thanks! :-)

    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.
