ok, so after watching videos about fast skill acquisition, volen ck videos about practice and inspired by /fit/ workouts I decided to just copy and draw noses from photos a 100 times to see what could happen.
Basically like a 10x10 set of any fit workout.

It took me a couple hours, but I am really happy with the progress and I felt very diferent right now towards drawing noses.

Around the 35 rep my understanding change and I can tell I've become intermediate level and stopped being a begginer regarding noses.
At around the 70 rep, I felt I've learned a lot about drawing noses and felt I stopped being intermediate.
At around 90 rep I was basically drawing from imagination even while I was copying photos.

It was a nice exercise and took me an entire day to pull off.
I'm excited to see if I can use this workout for other areas of the body, maybe an eye workout, a mouth workout, a portrait drawing workout.

I'm really happy over the results here.
Maybe some anons could try this kind of /fit/ workout practice session.

That's fine bro I'm just saying you're not intermediate yet. Keep working though you're going to get those gains. Post in here your progress every day I'd love to see it.

Also go download anatomy for sculptors, it might help you with your noses.

>> No.3947293

Congrats OP you have learned that practicing anything requires repetition.

But listen to elder god Kim Jung Gi for some more knoweldge:
>"And I emphasize that studying the subject matter while understanding them accurately is more important than just drawing a lot. I ask them to experience as much as they can in life, and in drawing I ask them to understand the subject matter perfectly and practice through repetition. That is why studying anatomy is a must when drawing human figure."

Basically, repetition is not enough without trying to gain knowledge beyond the simple image. Basically, you want to consider the skeleton and muscles beneath the skin as much as what is visible. Perhaps you can do drawings illustrating the bone beneath the nose as well as the cartilage to complete your understanding of why it is shaped like it is.

>Around the 35 rep my understanding change and I can tell I've become intermediate level and stopped being a begginer regarding noses.

Not to piss on your parade but you didn't learn shit. Try rotating some noses in space at different angles. Try drawing a variety of noses (hook nose, thin nose, wide nose, narrow nose, droopy nose, child like nose, etc), render noses, stylize noses. You're not intermediate--you have a long way to go.

>I’m interested in pushing boundaries through art, living and expressing my art with my body and mind while opening mental doors. It’s more than just my naked body, my vagina… a lot of people out there are reflecting and I accept when someone doesn’t understand the meaning of my art. Art is personal. When I perform I’m at one with myself, focused and calm. I feel strong, because I’m absolutely convinced about my work.

Dadaism was a fucking century ago. We've pushed the boundaries to the absolute breaking point. Then they broke. Breaking every last social faux pas and calling it a performance isn't just old hat, it's fucking decrepit. Boring. Done. Go home.

If you want to draw cartoons loomis is geniunely the best guide, his methods work better with cartoons than anything else. It allows for changing of proportions easily while still retaining anatomy.

I don't know what I'm supposed to be looking at - the values are too close to each other in each plane of space, the hues are the same, and the special effects lighting on the tree is lost in the jumble of competing elements. The composition feels compressed because of the big black void on the right, and everything on the left points the eye outside of the frame.

And, the perspective feels forced and not credible. You have trees just floating in space near the top - what are they standing on?

And, the most annoying thing, is the variance of focus in rendering, you go from detailed rendering, like the tree trunk and window shutters, to the loose, ugly painting style of the bird (also, birds don't fly with their feet like that), and then everything else feels like a rough sketch with no detail. The smoke/fog makes no sense and just adds to the clutter.

I feel more emphasis was on "special effects" typical of the popular chinese artists posted here, and less on quality drawing and painting. I'd prefer to see more of the latter.

And, ditto on the logo. That's just "look at me!", and unnecessary, and distracting, because it's inserting itself into the image the way it's done.

I drew this yesterday and I realized that every one of my drawings has this same non-expression. It's like she's too cool to show any sort of happiness or sadness. And when i went through my instagram feed to see all the other artists that draw girls like this, they are all the same. it's like modeling head shots. what resources would you recommend for me and us all to get away from this neutral eyes half open, RBF? I want to draw a cute girl laughing or yelling angrily or confused. (sorry for the weird cropping, i used an app to make it a square for instagram.)
