I love all the work I see here
This is my first time posting up in the forum, so howdy!
I am teaching myself how to be a concept artist/illustrator. I did attend ASU and graduate with a degree in Art-Painting...but what I learned most was how to take care of myself as there wasn't much in the way of actual art instruction during my time there--it was pretty much, here's your green sheet, go! Not very helpful, as you might imagine.
I've gotten pretty good at teaching myself stuff though
I feel I'm definitely out of the realm of beginner and solidly advanced as far as my technical skill--but I want to cross over into that advanced/elite level. In true have your cake and eat it too style, I'm trying to do this with a new baby
My son is only a few months old, so my studio time is limited right now.
The time I'm able to put in each day varies, from 5 minutes to 90 minutes or more a day. I've gotten a framework for managing my time, and it's starting to work--but I'd really like to hear from some fellow artists with small children/babies to see how you all manage your time so you're able to draw/paint while caring for your children/babies. I'm sure there are some great stories/ideas/suggestions out there, so I hope we can all share with one another.
