A good way might be to look into some of your favorite DA artists' favorites. They might have tutorials there that you could use :)

Well... Hmmmm. I've seen all the answers the people has given to you and... Aw man I'm very surprised. I've see very aggressive responses for a novice who is seeking to learn. I feel really bad about seeing that type of behavior. So, first, I want to tell you something, some people in the internet thinks that they're pretty smart for searching in wikipedia scientific facts to defend with their lives as if they were parrots or things like that, only because they read too much it doesn't mean that they're smart. So for that reason if you say them that you're smart by evidences they'll be offended because thinking they're smart makes they feel better, and sadly, they feel better if they think they're better than someone. They don't know that you didn't mean to be better than theirselves, but the obsession is part of their lives and every word that remembers they're not smart, they're not better than someone, or whatever else, makes them angry.

Everyone was a novice at first. And everyone, in varying degrees, had help. Perhaps they don't remember that, I remember how Kryon, my master, did a great job teaching me how to do Pixel Art, or Happip, or the great Ahruon who have corrected one of my sprites, also in my work I remember how my Lead artist have given to me a lot of tips that were a really great help!

So if you want a tip don't feed the troll, if someone treats you bad, leave it, really, it doesn't deserve your time, don't answer. If you're searching a teacher, instead what they say to you, keep searching, search for tutorials, ask for critiques on your work, try for your own! But don't give up because, if two people say you can't, no. YOU CAN. It's your will :)! Don't get upset for that comments.

Regards, I hope you find someone nice who is willing to help!

my IQ's something like twelve points higher than yours and I still manage to put on the wrong shoe once in a while. if you go around bandying your IQ like it's some sort of meaningful number, people are going to think you're an idiot rather than a genius.

You're pretty unlikely to get a free teacher that is worth anything.

The thing is, with an apprenticeship- a REAL one- the teacher is getting something out of it. As an example, we have an apprentice at the studio (glass) right now. He pretty much does all the crap we don't want to deal with. He gets to help out with the glass work and do some stuff on his own...but he's also the studio bitch. He sweeps the floor, sorts crap, does pretty much whatever we tell him to do.

So we get labor out of it, while he gets an education.

Online, the person teaching you gets nothing out of it, so there isn't any reason to do it for free. The better artist someone is- the ones you want to study under- the less likely it is they will feel like wasting their time teaching someone and getting nothing out of it.

AND-

120 is the typical IQ of someone who can graduate college. So you're really not all that incredibly smart.

And IQ doesn't have anything to do with how fast or well you learn a new technique. Sometimes the smarter someone is- or thinks he is- the harder it is to teach them.

The very fact that you felt we needed to know your IQ says a lot, and it's not good.

So...get a program and start playing :)

I learned myself. Lots of people here did. And you have access to all these tutorials that I didn't get (I started back in the day of dial up).

Do your art, post it in the thumbshare forum and ask people to critique, correct, and redline it for you.

IQ has nothing to do with how well you can pick things up. My sister has an IQ of 139, and she cannot draw to save her life, even when I was teaching her the bare basics as simply as I could. My IQ is only 115, and yet, when it comes to art, I pick things up faster than her. Why? Because I'm passionate about it, and I love learning new things when it comes to art. She's not. She's interested in math.

Age doesn't factor in how fast or how slow you pick things up either. Miles Johnston started learning at age 13. At the age of 17, people recognized him as a professional. People learn at their own pace, no matter how high or low their IQ or age is.

Also, good luck finding a tutor. Really, I mean it. Most teachers don't teach for free. The ones that do teach for free...well, they aren't that good. And it'll be even harder to get a teacher that's good since you're only going to draw as a hobby.

Getting someone to tutor you would most likely mean that you pay them. And since you're 16 I doubt that would happen.

Also, your IQ has nothing to do with it. Half of the 'gifted/high-IQ' students I know are dumbasses.

I think what self-Epidemic was trying to say was what does your tutor get out of it?

Dude. Just go get yourself books by Loomis, Brigdman, Hogarth and Villpu for general anatomy. For digital art you'll have luck finding stuff in the conceptart.org forums, as there are lots of pros there that post tutorials and how to's. Work on the fundamentals.


Honestly, if you were less lazy you could find all of this stuff on the internet and teach yourself.

Well it depends on the software you use and what you want to draw also whether you are considering art as a hobby or career too.

IQ is for the ignorant, also, piggybacking comment:
If he can't even justify WHY people SHOULD help him, an arrogant little child. Why should I be nice?

I've never said you should be nice, keep being what you wish.
And I really don't care about what says my IQ, I'm a rather stupid and slow-thinking person.

People with 80 of IQ can learn fast if it really interests them. Oppositely I've 134 but I hardly teach some things.
For me the IQ absolutely means nothing.
And I like your traditional stuff, like really. You shouldn't waste time and energy trying digital. It takes a whole lot of time to learn.

IQ means nothing, and why SHOULD someone mentor you? What will you offer in return? A self obsessed attitude of OMG 129 IQ. How obnoxious.
