Years upon years of practice. I’ve been working hard as an artist for the past 14 years now (7-8 years on a more serious level), and a lot of time has gone into who I am right now.
Drawing from life was always the thing that I learned from the most! And I’ve always been the kind of person that likes to dabble and experiment with things. I’ve been using watercolors for the past 5-6 years or so, and I’ve learnt the most by just trying to trying to duplicate things I like… if that makes sense?
When I do practice stuff, I’ll look at the work of people I admire and ask myself “What is it about their work that strikes such a chord with me?” I’ll narrow it down and try practicing techniques. I’ve got a big collection of just resource material, a binder/computer full of reference/inspiration etc.
I’m still learning A LOT, and no where near where I want to be. But such is the life of an artist :)
