/beg/ & /int/ - Beginner and Intermediate Thread

IF YOU ARE A /BEG/INNER OR /INT/ERMEDIATE IN ART, please use this thread to post pieces for critique or ask for advice.
Use this thread instead of making new threads or post in the drawthread with fundamental exercises.

RESIZE YOUR IMAGES TO ~1000 PIXELS using one of the following methods:
1. screenshot the image and post that instead
2. change camera capture settings to something smaller
3. send to computer and resize in MSPaint
4. does anybody actually read this?

READ THE STICKY:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uwaXKU7ev6Tw_or__o8ARpUb6r2rCZYJGqwSFV9AD98/edit#bookmark=id.15jx3pyuimvj

RECOMMENDED BOOKS FOR BEGINNERS:
- Keys to drawing
- Perspective made easy
- Figure - Design and invention
- Pen and Ink

TRY TO BE ACTIVE AND GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK.
When giving feedback, avoid vague "advice" - point what's wrong and try to give the anon you're quoting a clear direction to improve their art (study heads < watch THIS VIDEO about head structure, read THIS SECTION of THIS ARTIST'S BOOK, etc).
You, feedback seeking anon, should also try to be clear and concise when asking for critique/help. When posting your artwork, say what you want help with, and what's your goal with the study/artwork.

For fun, you retard. That's like asking why you'd get good at the guitar when Spotify gets thousands of new tracks uploaded every day. Or why you'd exercise when you'll never be Arnold Schwarzenegger. Your main reason for doing it should be because you enjoy doing it.
Don't devalue the vital necessity of self-fulfillment, self-worth, and personal actuation. There is inherent value in just feeling like you are good at something. You don't need to be the best, or to have a skill nobody has. It just needs to feel good to do to make it worth it, and you only need to be better than 95% of the population for it to really feel like a special skill (important: most of everybody sucks at almost everything. 6 months of dedicated practice and you'll be at a level that most people consider impossible for themselves because they have stunted motivation and attention).

I feel bad for people who are trying to market their skills competitively, though. Making a living off of art seems like absolute shit. I'm glad I have a day job an never intend to make a living off of art.

None that I've found.
If anything having glasses is an advantage!
Normies have to squint their eyes to get blurry images - it's a very useful technique when you're starting your drawing and want to capture the big picture, without worrying about details. And squinting for a long time is really uncomfortable.
But we, the glasschads, can simply take off our glasses to use this technique :)

1. Digital press/offset press. The higher the resolution supported with the right paper the sharper and more vibrant your prints will look.

2. Laser. Go eat a dick if you ever use inkjet.

3. Depends on your use + finish + method of printing. Browse paper merchant catalogues and check if the print shop has it.

4. Preference.

When I use it for drawing or anything else I basically only use the middle section for almost anything. You can see it clearly cuz its scratched af in the dead center and almost unused everywhere else. Is it normal? Its drawing area is 15.5cm x 9.5cm, so any real shoulder movements aren't really possible. Maybe its because when I try using the edge of the drawing area my hand is resting on the edge of the tablet and table or just the table so I can't do smooth movements.

I actually tried zooming in to fix this ""problem"", that is, zoom in such a way that a line I want to draw fills the whole screen. Was super uncomfortable and went back to drawing larger lines just super zoomed out (so a line being 1000 pixels long is still drawn with a short fast stroke in that small area of the tablet).
>>6149294
>I guess in Op case its not zooming problem, but moving canvas relying on middle of tablet, cause its comfortable for him, kinda same for me.
yeah, that too
>Op- you push your stilus to hard. How old is your tablet. Lower the pressure curve?!
I started drawing on it around 2 years, 6 months 11 days ago. Also the pressure settings feel like shit, I can never get them right. For the longest time I assumed it's a "me" problem, but I never had problems with precision in trad. Then I heard somewhere that lower end Wacom tablets have shit pressure sensitivity and that would explain a lot. Tablet still works perfectly fine aside for that, so I don't think that's a problem. I'm also planning on getting a newer one anyway. Either larger screenless or one with screen. Kinda related to the issue because I was thinking that with a screen tablet I would see where I'm actually drawing and that would solve this middle screen ""problem"".

>> No.6149506

>>6149275
My old-ass Wacom Bamboo has a mark just like that in the center, lol. You're not using the tablet wrong, you're just moving your canvas so that whatever you're drawing is in the center of the screen, which I do believe is a pretty common habit.
If that concerns you at all, here's a trick- get some paper, cut it to fit, and tape it down to your tablet (preferably with something that will keep a firm grip yet is easily removeable, like masking tape). You'll never have to worry about surface wear again. Feels nice to draw on too.

Like I said you have to have the experience to be able to draw the stuff first. That means many modest attempts at different scenes and trying to convey messages. I've you can do that I would say inspiration is probably part of what you're talking about. For instance, the easiest way for me to picture a scene is to listen to music.

Looking back at it and other anon's post, I wish I could delete my post now and make another.

But yeah it seems like your wife is toxic and needs therapy. Hopefully it works out, I know that my lover writes smut and draws nsfw for money and I often try to get him to send it to me first. Since we're both artists I can give him insight when he asks me for some.

I'm also his biggest fan so that helps too.

We've been together over ten years and that was our biggest ever fight. I'm not saying she's perfect, she's worked through a lot of things. I don't think I would say that she's toxic because of how she reacted when she found out that I'd been secretly writing and selling erotic novels (with a female pen name) whenever she left the house to work.

>>6149603
I would say I'm not bad.

If you don't enjoy the process and enjoy the satisfaction of improving at a skill, then what's the point? You'll never be a master no matter how hard you try, so if you can't enjoy the grind, then you'll always be miserable.

"If you can draw hands, you can draw anything"
Is it true ?

Face and head construction is fairly easy. Drawing hands, on the other hand, is like drawing an entire figure in itself. It's like you've got two figure drawings attached to the arms if your figure drawing. Drawing and foreshortening all those finicky, closely packed little limbs is a pain in the ass. It's probably the most complex mechanical construction in the body that you have to deal with on a constant basis.

You can symbol draw a head and get away with it. Hands and feet will look wrong if you half-ass them.

I came today with a discovery that some of you may enjoy, a large amount of scans of John Singer Sargent drawings. https://harvardartmuseums.org/collections?person=28495&sort=rank
The thing i find interesting though is that, if some of these dates are to be believed, he had some really crude and even amateurish looking drawings during a time when he had already made or was making some of his best work, and i dont understand how. i wonder if he was the type of artist that couldnt draw fast and all of those were first take quick sketches that just came out like dogshit because his tempo was off. some of these drawings must be from his youth but not all.
regardless, it puts me at ease seeing people i admire not being on top for every piece, its also interesting to look under the hood.

The works he is known for are already modernist fine art.
Fine art just means art that is not for other purposes like commercial arts, applied arts, and decorative arts.

I'm not too aware of the differences: in France, we basically have "musées des Beaux-Arts" (~fine art) and "musées d'art contemporain" (modern abstract random stuff)

There are per-period museums, but, as far as my small experience goes, essentially, the split is between old realist stuff and modern random stuff.

I have just read about this talentless mf and he took all the steps to assure that his drawing process would be the most painfull and chore est possible
