Hello there CA,
I'm Rico, a student in The Netherlands currently studying the course Game Artist. My main focus at school and my internship right now is 3D modelling and texturing, but in my spare time I have a huge interest in drawing conceptart in traditional ways and digital. My preference is mainly traditional, because in my opinion it teaches you how to be more efficient with your tools/materials and it pays of very well in the end when you work digitally.
I first found the CA forums around 7 to 8 years ago, but sadly my understanding of the English language was far too limited to be able cope with the community. Now I'm slowly trying to; meld within the forums, ask for help, learn from fellow artists and especially grow with each new sunrise.
My main focus right now is to study Anatomy as much as possible, in the hopes that I'm able to draw the human body better. I've already ordered two recommended books (Human Anatomy for Artists - Stephen Rogers Peck & Atlas Of Human Anatomy For The Artist - András Szunyoghy & Gyorgy, Dr. Feher), the next book I'll order will most definitely Figure Drawing For All It's Worth by Andrew Loomis.
So I hope that I'm making a good start out here, I might even post a Journal just like one of the old members has done one (MindCandyMan) since it's a great way to challenge yourself and keeping yourself in the flow of improving daily.
Well that's enough talk for now, it's time to get back into the sketchbook again. Keep on drawing!
