you do gesture drawings/digital portraits for twelve hours a day... but do any of you even know why?

>Im improving my hand!!!
this is not boxing, drawing is not a muscle. If you draw like crap for years doing studies meant for professionals/people who are actually good to work more efficiently, you have only gotten better at drawing like crap faster. You are doing studies to get good at doing studies.

Any improvement you see doing what ic tells you is accidental or you're deluding yourself

Not memeing, but I do agree that drawing is the one thing where your mindset and understanding of why youre drawing is really important if you care about improving quickly.

I mean, I could still be memeing. I'm just speaking from my perspective because I spent a lot of time thinking I was sincerely working toward improving, but I was just stubbornly, selfishly, and mindlessly bashing my head in one spot over and over because I was too scared.

He said it like a bit of a dipshit but i agree with him to a big degree, and i enjoy arguing how we learn technique.

Doing a lot of studies where you brainlessly copy something in front of you just makes you better at brainlessly copying. Yea, you can do studies in a way that's not direct copying but its very difficult, the difference in thought process between observation drawing and imaginative is so different that one always overtakes the other, its very difficult to not think in flattening copying when your drawing from direct observation and its certainly hard to avoid for beginners. Its often said that drawing from observation a lot makes you better at drawing in general, but i find it only makes you better at drawing from observation. When you say its easy if you do it thoughtfully, doing it thoughtfully is incredibly difficult.

Drawing what you see without thinking about why, is bad for your drawing. Consider that you pick up bad habits just as easily as good ones and "Studies" are often used incorrectly to reinforce flat thinking/drawing and actually reduce your sense of form.

I disagree, though I'm not as experienced in art, I do agree that mindlessly referencing will just end up not helping you at the end of the day.

I still feel like figure drawing, especially gesture drawing can only help you in the long run as it expands your mental library of possible poses to use.

Does the universe tend towards chaos or order? I think we might be biased to say that it tends toward chaos. After all millions of years of evolution have tended towards humans. And humans have a tendency to create order.

If the universe tends toward order then the eventuality is that everything will be aligned. Everything will be in its place. We have seen that the most advanced systems of organization (humans and computers) can think. Can simulate. So it seems that once our universe is aligned it will be simulating another universe to be aligned.

Hmm it occurs to me that evolution did not tend to "order" per se, but to persistence, to infinity, to eternity.

Spinoza says that there was no finite beginning and there is no finite end. But since the universe exists and we are a part of the universe, we inherit existence as an attribute. So there is a Will to Existence. Perfection and imperfection are modes of thinking used to compare things. We compare people this way and find that some people have more being or reality than others.

I suspect, gentlemen, that you are looking at me with compassion; you tell me again that an enlightened and developed man, such, in short, as the future man will be, cannot consciously desire anything disadvantageous to himself, that that can be proved mathematically. I thoroughly agree, it can—by mathematics. But I repeat for the hundredth time, there is one case, one only, when man may consciously, purposely, desire what is injurious to himself, what is stupid, very stupid—simply in order to have the right to desire for himself even what is very stupid and not to be bound by an obligation to desire only what is sensible.

We must choose between the disempowerment of isolation and the disempowerment of submission.”

To satisfy our longing for acceptance and recognition, to be intimately assured that we have a place in the world, and to be freed by this assurance for a life of action and encounter, we must open ourselves to personal attachments and communal engagements whose terms we cannot predefine and whose course we cannot control. Each of these ventures into a life of longing for other people threatens to create a craven dependence and to submerge our individual selves under group identities and social roles.

There is a clash between individuality and participation in social life.
There is a clash between the enabling conditions of self-assertion. For our efforts at self-assertion--at marking out a sustainable presence in the world--may be undermined both by the lack of social involvement and by these involvements themselves.

So I've been drawing for some time and have some money to spend, I've been thinking about buying a better drawing tablet for some time now, it seems most of what I learn about drawing isn't really applied to digital art for now because my tablet is too small, I can't even do proper lines from my shoulder on it, everything is mostly done by finger motion which sucks and trying to get a nuanced line right just kills my will to draw, too many tries for something very simple.

Anyway, I've been thinking about buying a XP Pen drawing tablet, because Wacom is just too expensive for me. Anyone here uses it? Any experience?

Alternative (non Wacom) drawing tablets thread I guess.

XP Pen, Huion, Ugee, Monoprice, which one do you guys recommend?

Introduce more contrast into your work. All your pieces succeed in likeness, so you need to start pushing color and light. Golden Light is your most interesting piece because it has non-uniform lighting.

Your other pieces seemed like missed opportunities for interesting lighting/colors.
Ex: Polar bear fur is hollow and transparent so you can really play up its luminosity and reflection of the colors in the environment (pic related). (Also remember when you are looking straight on at the side of the polar bear's neck you are looking down in between the hairs and it'll be darker there).

Other than that, these are impressive results for only 2 years!

Be the best you can be. Don't try to follow in another persons footsteps in art, it won't happen. This is really good stuff dude

yeah no
this is why you shouldn't rely on random no-name artists on google images for anatomical accuracy

It's a good reference with minor mistakes, if you want something really high quality you can look for scott eatons work and also gottfried bammes

I'm having a lot of issues with this ridiculous oil painting for class. I've never painted reflecting water and I feel like there's something really off about my take at it. Lmk if you have any advice! Sorry about the pic taken with my crap computer camera

You need to do perspective do do reflections right. The perspective is already wonky in this, it is beyond salvageable.

Perspective is totally wrong, but I do not agree that this image is beyond salvageable. It is a learning experience and it would be a pity just to throw it out. Maybe at a later date when you feel more confident, but by now why not save it?

Here's what I would suggest:

- Remove the horizon.
- Add some fog effects.
- Reduce contrast in base of statue.
- Add some greenish reflected light in statue (it is weird that eveything is green and the statue does not reflect this at all)
- Blend the border between the statue and water.
- In general, avoid dark edges (from pencil?) around objects, as it makes everything flat.

So I've had some problems and wasn't able to draw for a year or so.
Now I have immense trouble getting back into the flow.
I was working like a well oiled machine before, for the first time in my life I fear the empty canvas now. I have no idea where to start and what I am even doing, because I operated on instinct most of the time.
I constructed, inked, colored for 10 years straight digitally and knew what I was doing by muscle memory.
Now I'm sitting in front of my new desk and I completely blank and when I start to ink something I fucking lose track of the flow and fuck it up.

What do? I need rehab.

It's hard to explain but you can't help it. when you feel depressed your can't keep focus and your mind starts roaming, at some point you start thinking you should kill yourself.
It's not really planning, more like fantasizing. Either way I know it's never going to end. It's a thing like alcoholism, you never really quit being an alcoholic, but in this case the booze is in your head and there's no way to stop.

Do a few master studies that should get you back into the flow. make sure to choose shit you LOVE

stop being afraid of failure and just draw. you're going to make bad art, its just apart of life

You're trying to cling to your past artwork and skill, which is why you have so much anxiety about it now. This is the kind of baggage you're bringing to a new canvas. That's a lot of pressure isn't it?

So just forget about all that. Those 10 years have passed. All you can do now is paint for the present.

Routine.

You gotta brute force it at first, but a good flow requires routine. If you need to build it back up gradually, build it back up gradually.
