Hey there guys. I can’t afford art school that’s why I’m choosing the self study route. Can you guys give a roadmap on becoming a concept artist?

I'm started a pre-beg to beg gesture drawing group a few days ago. We now have a few members. Anyone can join though. I post poses, we draw poses gesturally or do sketches, any amount of time, just a way to get work out and have positive community. Something casual. No toxic critique and I'll be pretty zero tolerance on uninviting anyone not there to draw. Open to suggestions via DM but keeping it pretty minimalist. It's my group.

basically there are so many mistakes, but I think its because you're diving off into the deep end. Try tracing some art you like and make notes of what you notice. Practice the parts you don't understand. Start with fundamentals.

Not in particular; just look around, there are plenty of good options.

If you know nothing, even a low-quality book will teach you something. The most important is heavy practice anyway. Infinitely better to have a low-quality book and intense practice, rather than Le Best Book Ever and do nothing.

(Like, most people here simply hoard and barely draw anyway).

It was a question asking about subjective opinion. Do you feel things about commissioned portraits? There's just far more interesting works from the artist, things that tell more of a story or show of his own creativity more adequately.
I judge a band by the feeling that I get when I listen to different elements of it. Even objectively shitty music can have its charms. My favorites are those that tell a story, something that I can create a visual for in my mind.

>My favorites are those that tell a story, something that I can create a visual for in my mind.
that's fine. it's just that some works of art are beyond linear, "easy" storytelling. there are certain tropes in art that just work. Like think of the paintings by Caspar David Friedrich, there is a dramatic, moody landscape and most of the time, you have a figure in the painting, sometimes with their back to the viewer, so we easily identify with the awe-inspiring view of the landscape.

Then there's all this rather abstract stuff like the writings of Kafka, Beckett, Joyce. And there's paintings by Cecily Brown, Albert Oehlen, Richard Diebenkorn. And maybe you look at Tarkowsky, Lynch, Jodorowsky, where there's often no easy way to interprete or analyse the work that is without ambiguity.

So yeah, sometimes even commissioned paintings and maybe also Rembrandt's Nachwache can evoke some kind of awe in you. Or you find that certain postures and gestures may contain hidden meanings.

An afterthought: So, you sit there in front of your computer, tablet or phone that you use for messaging, emails, paying bills, watching youtube and porn and you search "Rembrandt Nachtwache", which originally is a 12 by 14.5 feet painting, oil on canvas. And you look at one measily JPEG that is most likely too dark, tiny resolution, has reflections and obviously has cose to nothing to do with standing in front of the real thing. so you stare at these lit up pixels and no screen in the entire world can properly display the color black, to name just one tiny inadequacy. you then seriously sit there and conclude: "i don't feel it, this must be garbage" ...
