Hi. You're amazing! If you could take a quick second to answer this, you would honestly change my life: What do I physically need to do during practice, each day, to eventually be able to create something like this?
Can you please break down exactly what one extremely motivated beginner student would need to do, each & every day when he or she sits down to practice, in order to create these incredible photorealistic 2d digital drawing/paintings from my imagination?
I've been trying some stuff, but I still suck!!
Can you please make me, like, a list?!!!! So I can then go out and explore those topics? Or at least tell me what I need to physically be doing with my practice time?
Thank you for trying to help!
Fill whole page of A4 with lines, from one side of the page to the other, both vertically and horizontaly (so you end up with page full of squares).
Flip the page, fill it with elipses of various sizes.
Take another piece of paper, draw sphere, cube, shade them. In the same page do the practise described in this tutorial: truxtherealone.deviantart.com/…

When you are pro at those you can move onto learning anatomy (if you are only interested in drawing human(oid)s). I personally have this book for that: www.amazon.com/Bridgmans-Compl…
To be precise, I LOVE the angular drawing style.
Once you learn more about anatomy and basics of drawing, in every piece of art you will start noticing anatomy/perspective mistakes. You might find pieces you previously loved to be horrible.
Just to nitpick, about this particular picture, the pose is unrealistic (you can't sit like that in real life ), it sure looks cool though.
P.S. dat hand...
