Let's say, hypothetically, I have four years and three months between entry level shitter and a Gobelins/CalArts portfolio (or fine, realistically, I'd settle for Sheridan or SCAD, because the dream would be fucking ludicrous).
What sort of "track" should I focus my training on?
Right now I'm a third year university student, just kind of doing life drawings of random stuff around me as frequently as I can, drawing authentically from life and trying to understand form, with some focus on gesture (Proko). All of this is done in a typical Strathmore notebook, or when I can't formally practice, on whatever drawing surface I have handy waiting in lobbies, during lecture, waiting on food, etc.
I'm currently reading through Keys to Drawing and Ernest's Perspective Made Easy.
As far as I understand, I need to sharpen fundamentals to a fine point. That much I get. That comes with consistent, disciplined practice. But beyond that, what should I keep in mind? Who should I consult along the way, when I start to plateau, or I'm not sure where to go?
