Where To Begin: A journey in character art
I very new to graphic art and I've only recently seen watch can be done with it. I go on dA and look around and know that my work can be just as good as the stuff I see there it's just a matter of learning. I want to be good enough to get commissions someday,but for right now, I need to know the what's what of it all. How many tutorials can one watch? One can only learn a tiny corner of the puzzle piece at a time in that manner. Graphic Design schools? Really? Do I need to go to one to figure out how to use my pentab? What sort of things should I be trying to learn the most about? What digital skill do you find most useful for taking your work from paper to pixel? I'd be very grateful for the forum's insight, I want to take something I like and turn it into more than just a hobby,so I appreciate any tips, links, advice in advance. Included is a scan from my phone on of my drawings, Mariya and Niyamae from MariaHolic! (you can see why i want to to step up my art)[/font]
