Hello Conceptart Community,
I just registered on conceptart.org so I want to say who I am fast (this is not an introduction).
I am 16 years old, my name is Thorben and I want to get serious about art.
Since I'm young I was somehow always the best pupil in school art classes (now I know this isn't hard ). I thought I'm very good at art and last year I decided to become serious about art and eventually work as an artist someday (which would be my dream).
So I started watching videos on youtube... I was simply amazed and even more motivated to do things like that.
Of course I was more than confident that I can do that too. But after I tried it I had to admit that I'm not as good as I thought I am. I noticed that I don't know much about art. I looked for tutorials.. but I couldn't find any that were for my level.
I tried drawing something.. noticed that I'm just too bad, got frustrated and stopped.
Now I finally realized, even if it makes me sad, that I have to learn basics. I looked for them but I just couldn't find them. I found a course about drawing the human figure and I'm still doing it, but that's all. I don't know what else I can practice. I feel pretty frustrated by that.
So here is my question:
Can anyone tell me what to practice?
What helped you to become as good as you are now?
Maybe my problem seems so idiotic for some of you but it stops me from practicing. Sure some of you might say now..: Draw anything and you'll get better.. but just practice.
Please do post exactly what I should do. It would make me so happy. I think it's just this first step that I need to go but I don't know how.
(If you say: Use google, I already did)
