Not all of us have access to real-time art schools and teachers but the online world has a lot to offer!
Today I want to tell you about one of my favourite YouTube artist Sycra. He is a self taught mostly digital artist that does mostly freelance work and makes helpful YouTube videos.
In his videos he does not only discus basic drawing problems and tutorials but he also talks a lot about the industry and the real life of a freelance digital artist. His style is amazing but more amazingly is the fact that his whole style development is documented in a series called pointy chins.
He has art reviews, tutorials, interviews and and a lot of great live streams and speed paintings.
Some of the best videos are So You Wanna Be A Professional Artist? in which he is brutally honest but also very inspirational and Art Advice I’d Give Myself If I Had to Start From Scratch in which he talks about being a self-taught artist and what it takes and also some great materials.
Other videos that I would defiantly would recommend are his How to Practice Drawing video which really explains how to get good faster and A Talk About Drawing Styles In which he really talks about how you should start with the basics!
Further more, his site contains a section full of resources and a Forum where you can find a wonderful community of people that want to improve.
Please check him out and tell me which videos you like!
