All right, guys, whoever reads this: I need some help.
I've been looking into getting some art classes. I think it's long overdue that I took some, but the problem is:
I can't find any! Or well, no evening/weekend classes, only professional schools. I found one class and it's only for painting.
Very very sad. I'm gonna keep looking, but with the start of evening classes being in September, I'm a bit stuck.
I really wanna improve. I'm sick and tired of not feeling that I'm getting better, that I'm not learning.
So what I ask is: Give me some pointers on what I should really concentrate on. Share your favourite tutorials
or even your own tips and tricks. Whatever works! If you livestream, that's great too, cause I learn better after watching something. I'm open for trying new stuff, my grandpa told me I should experiment a little to find my own style, so all's fine.
Thanks in advance for helping!
Gonna list accumulated info here. Hope this doesn't update every time I edit (tell me if it does)
Things to work on:
Try skeletons first, not everything at the same time.
Pay attention to where everything should go (look at real pictures)
Pay attention to proportions!
Fashion magazines/catalogues for poses (would never have thought of this)
- sets mood of a picture
Use complementary colours to shade
o Use stock images as reference
fav.me/d6axkrj (varying in thickness)
o Other tips:
- References (not downright for copying, but to see how stuff works, lighting, poses, ... )
- try using textures
- try varying eye shapes
- Try 'copying' others style without really copying it to find your own (?)
