Subject title: Sycra's comment on learning photorealistic drawing


2+ years ago, I recall one of his videos saying that if you were to spend 6-12 months learning photorealistic drawing, you could get hired doing it(does anyone know which video this was, by chance?) While this isn't all or even more than 10% of what I ultimately would want to do with my art, I'm curious as to any insight on how to best go about it. What approach? Any books/channels that are ideal for it? I've read both Betty Edwards books so far, and that's definitely part of the battle toward accurate drawing.

Thanks for any tips! :)

I don't know about the Sycra video either, but I do have something to say about how you could go about learning photorealistic drawing.

Mark Crilley has an interesting book about it, you can find it here:

With that said, I don't think it's possible to get hired doing these kinds of drawings. Don't let that take away your enjoyment though!
Have a great day :)
