What to do as an artist in training.
There are many ways to Rome they say. But I meet a lot of aspiring artists lost and asking me for guidance
and this is what I tell them.
(This is a revisited version of an old journal with new and updated guidelines/info)
Find out what you really want to do with art, there are so many different professions or hobbies to take on.
Graphic designer, Concept artist (mobile and high end), Illustrator of book covers or for card games and so much more.
Once you can make your pick, or at least pick 1 or 2 you must do research on the most valued artwork from that niece. 
Find out what makes the best artist of your favorite field the best artist. What do they paint? How do they paint it? With knowing this you can find out about the things you need to study.

The most basic study aims are the following:

:bulletblue: Lighting.
What forms of light art there? And how does it influence things?
The book Color and Light by James Gurney will

Journal
The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.
Concept art is getting bigger and bigger. More people know what it is nowadays, it gets shown in the media more often and more books get released. This automatically results into more people wanting to become concept artists. So many artschools are now creating special courses all towards game art or concept art. (Game art can also include UI design, 3D modeling etc.).
Yet it is a fairly new thing to most people and the idea of "becoming a concept artist" has grown rapidly over such a short time that a lot of people who are new to it seem to get a lot of misguide info. I am going to try to list this misguided info and direct you to the correct info.
(Again I would always advise you to do your own research and form your own knowledge and not just simply agree with what you read online, not from anyone, not from me. Even though i'm right ;) .. ofcourse. :P *wink *wink )

Fenris
More portrait sketches! I've actually never played the other dragon age games, so I hope I didn't draw Fen ooc. I did watch some youtube videos, though, just to hear his voice and get inspired. One day I'll play the games.

Solas Studies
Some studies I did from screenshots and imagination. Sometimes I really don't like how I draw Solas, so I like to go back and do studies and learn from them.

A Wondering Waltz
This was a sketch I tried to experiment with more. Characters are my solavellan OC, Sen'aras, Abelas and Solas from DAI. The sketch was inspired by this beautiful piece of music, and I do believe I was subconsciously thinking of Charlie Bowater's beautiful sketches!

Hello all! I'm sorry I've been absent (particularly from deviant art)...Recently, I had a strong urge to flee social media. I really love sharing art, but right now my mind is in study and rest mode, plus getting used to having a toddler (wheeee)! I think I will start visiting deviant more often though, I still really like the intimacy of commenting here. I hope everyone who follows this page is well, hopefully I'll share some stuff in the future!
