im here because i got the feeling that i lost my love to Draw.
I started to Draw when i was 9, because i loved Final Fantasy 8 Cutscenes, and that all i ever wanted to do with my life. It made me Proud to know this so early in Life.
But on the way from Drawing from Pictures/Photos i got frustrated by drawing from my Imagination and began to draw less and less.
That is mostly because:
If i sit down to draw from a Photo i just tell myself "i can do that anyway"
If i sit down to draw from Imagniation i tell myself: " i cant do that anyway"
I had a lot distraction over the past last years that kept me from going on, but whenever i found a reason to Draw again, it really fullfilled me and almost made me happy enought to cry because it felt like getting something back that i lost.
Right now all i need is a Battlestrategy.
Im over with Manga and Comic Drawings, thats not my style. Iam no Artist to draw in Motion or color, i love Concept Arts and Portrait sketches like "DaVincis Skuriel Heads" if someone knows that.
Whats the best way for me to improve that way? I think what i need right now is some kind of Manual what i have to draw, to improve in what i wanna be able to draw. If you think drawing Anatomie or Portraits for 10000 Times will help me to become a Concept Artist, to Improve my skills in Drawing my own Characters from Imagination in the Future - i will gladly do so.
Edit: Thinking about it - i guess all i need is some "Gurantee" that i wont waste my Time by doing what i know i have to do. Some Words of Advice or Reinsurance would help me greatly. I lost a lot Time by "doing my A-lvl" and "learning 3D Software", now im 22 and nowhere where i wanted to be.
Ps: The File Attached is not my Work. Its an example of the Kind of Artwork that i love. The Kind if wanna be able to draw.
I Choose Concept Art for another reason, thats because i wanna be a 3D Animator and give Life to my Concepts. But First comes the Drawing!
