Hey everyone, I am 21 years old and have been drawing and painting for 10 months. I am extremely eager to learn and don't mind putting in long hours to practice and improve. I am very confident and used to using photoshop. The problems I have when I am painting is that I seem to get stuck and lost while I am painting. First I used to wonder why but now it is very obvious that I needed to step back and practice anatomy as much as possible. So I did so and I can see a huge improvement in my work. I would like to have a mentor that could help me from time to time with things that I maybe have missed and how I can improve myself to become the artist I want to be.
For anyone who is interested I have a sketch book here on CA (http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=243410) that I have updated quite often and still keep updating it. The latest painting you can see I have a problem knowing were the light should be on the face. I have hunted high and low to find some pictures I can use as reference but I can't find one nor can I see it in my mind yet. The painting is supposed to be in the night dark outside but light from the moon from behind.
Anyway thanks for taking your time reading this and I hope to find someone kind and helpful who is willing to spend some time teaching me and guiding me on the right track.
