I am a lifetime art student that has been actively consuming everything i can to evolve my skills in the direction that I am most successful and i have had a semester of colege for game design. I am currently working on getting back into school to continue my education but for now i am utilizing everything the internet has to offer to advance my talents on my own. My problem is that I am increasingly growing my graphite art but it seems that there isnt as many artists out there that are into graphite as there should be. My thought is that in order to develope true skills that will be remembered in illustration and the art of this day in age just as Davinci is in his artistic genre instead of falling into the sea of artists who are content with just runing with the crowd, then you must crawl then walk then run and then sprint till your finish line. My question is is there any one who can help me out of the rut that im in with my art i can draw abstract fantasy art and most everything else but right now i am trying to master magna. What is most popular manga images to learn and what is the most difficult aspect of manga that people tend to stay away from due to its difficulty? Any advise would be vary helpful.
