Hello! I am a 17 Year old High school student and I am looking for a mentor who can help me grow in my art. I'm set on becoming an Illustrator/Concept artist as a career and yet I find myself often stuck on painting or they lack the depth needed to be an amazing artist. What I struggle with the most is using bold shadows and highlights and I have problems stepping outside of my comfort zone with colors. Landscapes are also an issue for me.
I have no problem with these things when translating something I see, rather I believe it is essential to know these things when coming up with an image in your head. My Imagination could also use a good exercise.
If you feel like your perfect for helping out a young artist like me then please drop me a PM and/or critique my current sketchbook so I know what I can improve on :3 Thank you for looking!
