Talking New girl hoping to learn

Hello everyone! I've been an "artist" since I was really little and I'm 19 years old at the moment. I took many many art classes in middle school and high school, including studio art. I went to college for a year in AR and am planning on going to college in CA when my in-state tuition kicks in. I moved from Arkansas to California and live near the game industry. I'm hoping to become a concept artist one day. Fortunately, I already have my foot in the door because my boyfriend is in the game industry.

I've been trying to work on my art every day and just recently ordered a plethora of oil paints, including Soho Oil paints (for filler), Sennelier, Winsor& Newton, and a few tubes of Williambsburg handmade oil paints. I joined this community to help others, but mostly to learn all I can! Thanks guys!

Re: New girl hoping to learn

Hi Lisa and a warm welcome to the Wet Canvas Community

This is a very large site with a lot going on in the forums. Be sure to check out the subject and medium forums as well as some of the special interest forums. There is something here for every artist and all levels of expertise. All are welcome, so don’t be shy about posting or starting threads.

A good place to start your WC! experience is to read some of the articles in the links found in the signature lines of some of the mods and guides - they contain some very useful information which will help you to navigate and participate in WC!

If you have any problems, just drop back here to New Users and we’ll be happy to help.

Have fun and enjoy Wet Canvas!
