I'd like to learn how to draw concept art but i don't know how to start.
I've been drawing for over a year now but haven't really studied anything and i think if i would study... i'd get better much faster. So where to start? should i start with an anatomy book? perspective?
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
You start, by starting. If you don't start you are doing it wrong.
Where to start? The basics of course!
Introduction to ConceptArt.org with 2 not so hard to find stickies
Then there's Fine Arts With the description: "The technical side to art. Get help with honing your skills."
I'm sure if people reflected and looked about instead of treating the Art Discussion Forum as "Dear Abby, how do I become a better artist in this one thread, too lazy to look around and think for myself" it wouldn't get people so cynical with the advice :/
Quick, before your inspiration wanes!
My sketchbook thread:
**Finished Work Thread **Process Thread **Edges Tutorial
Crash Course for Artists, Illustrators, and Cartoonists, NYC, the 2013 Edition!
"Work is more fun than fun."
"Art is supposed to punch you in the brain, and it's supposed to stay punched."
And then someone will say 'people will post 'where to start' topics anyway'.
And then someone will say 'we have these stickies'.
And then someone will post a 'where to start' topic, and the sage hindsight and rhubarb and nodding will accompany like clockwork, without a hint of irony.
Well, maybe not. But I see a bunch of 'hey, where'd my thread go!?' threads popping up to replace the merged threads, at the least.
