Haahaa Im going to be in your case, asking you a lot of questions :] .. example; what book do you recomended for studying light and composition?
snatti89 Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2013  Professional
Hi, no worries, i have not read many books, its hard for me to learn from just reading, but the two books i have read is Michael Hampton figure drawing, and James gurney color and light, for light and compositions i just paint and sketch a lot from life on regular basics and you can read up on many different places online regarding compositions, also looking at old master paintings and analyze and study them is also another way of learning, Hope this helps!

I'm currently reading James gurney color and light; it's a great book. And yes this help a lot, it give me a good perspective on which path to take for learning... Thanks :] I still have more questions, sorry! -_- Your visual library is on point. When painting do have references beside you or do you just recall ideas from previous image/object you saw or read about?

Hi, no problem, when i paint more fantasy stuff ( which is not as often as sci fi ) i tend to do a bit of research on knights or relevant things to what i am gonne paint before i start, for sci fi i can just jump straight into it,i think one of the reasons why that is: as child i used to watch a sci fi movie 20 times before i would be contempt(i still do re watch a lot of movies :D) so i remember a lot of shapes and forms from that, i also had a massive interest in engines and cars ( my original goal in life was to even be car mechanic ) which gave me a passion for all mechanical things, also working in sci fi i feel there is less "boundaries" i can almost always go crazy with shapes and form. But i would suggest to use reference in the start, it helps you build up your memory of shape and forms and it will help with the designs,but the more you paint a certain subject/theme the less you will need reference ( just speaking from my experience, everyone is different and have different ways of working ) I hope this helps.
