I have a handful of books, including all 6 Loomis, but I just can't keep interest when reading.
I tried the Vilppu videos that 4chans /ic/ suggested. And....same problem.
There has to be SOMETHING that can keep my interest.
My goal is to draw character concept art, doing pencil rendered versions of stuff like this:
I assume I'd have to be a master of shading/blending in order to achieve a smooth look. I don't want my art to have the "outline" look.
I need to find a way to understand anatomy where I don't get bored to death.
Is there anything besides hours upon hours of drawing, that will help my lines go exactly where I want them to go, and have my proportions correct?
I have always drawn holding my pencil like you would when writing your name, and I assume thats a bad idea.
I don't have any art to show off, sadly.
