When I look at this, I just fall right inside of it! It's just amazing! To think you did this as a 'speed-painting'! I'm astonished - just love it!

Hi. You're amazing! If you could take a quick second to answer this, you would honestly change my life: What do I physically need to do during practice, each day, to eventually be able to create art like you? How did you learn and become so amazing?!!


Can you please break down exactly what one extremely motivated beginner student would need to do, each & every day when he or she sits down to practice, in order to create these incredible photorealistic 2d digital drawing/paintings?


People just say 'Practice.' But I do not know 'exactly' what this entails. 


Can you maybe make me, like, a list or something?!! So I can then go out and explore those topics? Or at least tell me what I need to physically be doing with my practice time so I can get as good as you? 


If there's any books/DVDs/tutorials you can recommend that totally helped you get better, that would be so freakin' incredible!!!


Thanks for the help!

I may no be the person who you want to hear this from, but good art like this takes time the more you do it the better you get. If you look at the first few pieces in his gallery they're not as good as any thing that Jordan made after. So I recommend just keep drawing painting or what ever you enjoy and watch as you get to be amazing.
