Hi. You're amazing! If you could take a quick second to answer this, you would honestly change my life: What do I physically need to do during practice, each day, to eventually be able to create something like this?
Can you please break down exactly what one extremely motivated beginner student would need to do, each & every day when he or she sits down to practice, in order to create these incredible photorealistic 2d digital drawing/paintings from my imagination?
I've been trying some stuff, but I still suck!!
Can you please make me, like, a list?!!!! So I can then go out and explore those topics? Or at least tell me what I need to physically be doing with my practice time?
Thank you for trying to help!
examples of reference photos, I would pull up fur pelts, belts, different metals, and hair styles, skin color, and just go to town in my sketch book. It can be a long, but very rewarding process. everyone is capable of becoming a great artist, just have to keep hard at work at it, and all ways challenge yourself, even if it comes out horrible, its better to stretch past your boundaries then to stay in a comfortable zone where you restrict your abilities to learn further.
hope any of what I said can be of help to you on your road of becoming a better artist
Splendid work! When I envision a random wandering Paladin or Knight in general, I think almost all of the veteran ones look similar to this. Love the cloak and hood, the armor and all its trim, the bloody details on the cloth and part of the cape hem, and especially the swords' crossguard! Faved, saved, and on my mind.
