bamping because entertaining narcissistic tantrum
what validation do you want that hasn't been offered already? people have already told you that you could. they're only saying you shouldn't because you clearly have issues. you just have to work hard and grind your ass off. no one else can tell you if it's worth it for you to do so or not.

you live in a perpetual state of self-humiliation because you think you should be amazing after spending 4 months doodling and you aren't (4 months is nothing btw). this is making you toxic and will prevent you from improving because every shitty drawing you do will cause you to throw a tantrum and freak out like you're doing now. even pros make shitty drawings sometimes but the difference is they have learned not to fall to pieces about it. this is true for anyone who develops any skill that takes a lot of effort and self-teaching.

you have to be kind to yourself, because no one else owes you kindness or validation, and if you act like a venomous sperg to anyone who attempts to engage with you, you will find the number of people who will humor your apparent narcissism gets smaller every time. this "I'm bad but I'm the only one who deserves to be good because no one else cares about art BWAAAH" shit is narcissistic as fuck and just plain wrong.

Art is what I want, blogpost that should belong on vent but Ill post it here, art was my escape as a child to cope with my shit reality, I used to draw, shitty kid doodles but I had confidence, if I wasnt getting abused by my mother or beaten up by other people to the point of needing to be hospitalized, one of those left me constantly hallucinating for a while, I was drawing art, is my escape and I want to, no, I need to do something worthwile. But this upbringing fucked me up, everyone tells me I'm nothing and all I do will only fail, I'm insecure, it hurts to fail because if I fail once I'll fail again, what was the punishment for failing? Beatings that lasted hours at a time. I'm insecure because I want to do this but what if I'm just deluding myself, I'm not talented, I'm fucking old, 19 years old, almost 20.

Not him but can you explain the push and pull?
I've seen it a few times mentioned for figure drawing but don't really know how to do it.
Aren't you just meant to copy the reference?
Is push and pulling only for dynamic poses?
I don't think it works for poses that don't have a lot of energy.

>> No.5009698

>Aren't you just meant to copy the reference?
No wonder you’re a moron not getting gains

>> No.5009714

It's difficult to understand until you practice it a lot. I recommend doing 30 second gestures, for real. Vilppu's way of doing gesture by using rhythm lines not only maps out the drawing, it marks out which parts of the body is pushing and which is pulling, etc. (aka the action of the pose) Yes, you are copying the reference, but its deeper than that, you're diving into the underlying mechanics of the thing you're drawing. Are you just drawing a picture of a woman looking to the right, or a woman looking to the right? It seems like a minor difference, but its actually a very important distinction. Gesture works for both dynamic and subtle poses, even corpses, because ultimately the gesture is just a way to map out the drawing, and IF there's pushes and pulls that will be a part of the drawing. If you're just drawing a corpse, just use the gesture to map out the drawing. There are many many ways to do gesture, you don't have to do it the Vilppu way, you could also use a cloth and smudge in charcoal powder, like Vilppu does with a chamois, or you can use straight lines to block in the gesture, but whatever you do, you HAVE to map out the drawing, and to map it out you need to understand what it is you're drawing, and if you're drawing a figure, to understand what it is you're drawing, you have to understand what the figure is doing, what they are feeling, and the story point behind the drawing.

Everything I just wrote will become super obvious to you once you actually do those 30 second gestures. You'll find yourself actually kinetically feeling the action of the figure you're drawing with your pencil, whether there be action or no action

>> No.5009716

I get that you're fucked up, and it's okay when you're still a kid -- which you still are, but not for much longer. you will learn (hopefully) that there is a point in your life where you are the only one responsible for the way you act, no matter how badly you were abused, and no one is going to step in and do it for you. when you're not a kid anymore, people have zero tolerance or sympathy for you being an unhinged sperg. they run the fuck away. no one can actually help you overcome your baggage, except to offer sympathy if you don't scare them off first.

I mean this in the nicest, most compassionate way: no one has a reason to give a fuck about your hopes and dreams and handholding you the whole way. this means that it is entirely in your own hands to succeed. this should be liberating, and if it's not, think hard about why you think it isn't. it's the same for everyone else in the world. this also means that no one can take it away from you if you want it badly enough.

you are the stories you tell yourself about yourself. are you gonna make yourself into a venomous sperg or do you wanna be a success story and overcome your past abuse? I hope you do make it, but as long as you act like a cyclone of negative energy no one is going to want to help or interact with you.

Actual lethal change your life advice here, this advice is probably worth more than your net worth at 19.

For the love of god please listen to this advice

>> No.5009780

that really depends on your goal. grinding fundies to "git gud" without a specific goal in mind is fucking soul crushing. what do you want to be good at ultimately? painting? concepting? comic art? when you have some goal on the horizon, you start to see obstacles as setbacks or puzzles to solve rather than permanent traps. come up with an idealized version of yourself and where you want to be in 5 or 10 years, and make everything you do be in service to that.

from what I see in >>5009484 , you are doing eye training and accuracy practice from photos. this is good. try Dorian Iten's accuracy training (on YT) also, if that isn't what you were doing already. it's also good that you are practicing the shapes: keep that up, but try doing ALL the shapes that compose the image. one thing you should try is "enveloping", which pairs well with Iten's accuracy methods: find the biggest shape enclosing the subject, and then work down from big to small in terms of defining the shapes which compose the image. this might also help with your line quality, which you should keep in mind. straight lines are good.

another thing that helps me occasionally is doing value studies (in PS from photos). make an image b&w, the better composed it is the better the practice (e.g. movie stills) then try to recreate the image with only 2 values, and then only 3 values. try to be as accurate as possible and DO NOT color pick. DO NOT blend. this is for learning how to accurately read values and as a bonus, how they are used compositionally. value is probably the most important thing to be accurate about after your drawing/shapes.

>> No.5009784


your construction is promising, per >>5009486, >>5009492 and >>5009495 . keep practicing applying construction methods against reference images -- portrait, figure and gesture. don't get caught up in likeness at first. this is the best practice I can think of for construction, besides inventing figures. remember that art is two-phased: creating and correcting (self critique->fixing). you have to hone both of these of skills, and if you are frustrated by what you output, ~~think critically in full sentences about what looks wrong and how to fix it~~. practicing this back-and-forth cycle of creating and correcting is the best way to improve on your own.

lastly, if your aim is to paint ever, I recommend master studies. find some artists whose styles appeal to you and literally sit down and copy them without color picking or tracing. an easy way is load an image you want to reproduce into photoshop, double the width of it to the right, and use the right half to make your own so you know the dimensions are the same. TIMEBOX YOURSELF with this one so you don't get autistically focused on blending at 1000% zoom. if you can't think of artists you want to copy, now is the time to go find some by looking at classic works -- this should be the fun part. I'm a basic artfag so I tend to study Sargent, Zorn, and Cornwell.

here's a video about accuracy training I mentioned (part 1 of 3): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMX3K3YMbd8

wrt shapes, use straight lines only, go from big to small, and think of the image as a mosaic of shapes. this will help to lay-in while painting, and the blending/gradient/halftone shit comes later. here's an extremely basic video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZknWKTpc90

Doing things effectively, well studying something effectively requires tons of trial and error both from yourself and methods you found from other people.

i really don't want to since i did fuck all nothing for like 6 years straight (last few concious years of school + college) and i begun actually doing courses and learning skills earlier this year and it feels good. I actually feel awful if i get nothing done during day.
Yeah i'm just afraid that i will be doing something for, say a year straight and then will realise that i could've done different something that would boost me way further, but because i didn't i did a year of 40% efficency compared to 65% efficency if i'd know the better thing.

Also people say alot that you should not be hard on yourself when doing art because failure is part of learning process, but what if i'll be so soft to myself that at a certain point in time i will stop improving and will not notice that because i will believe in my own lies that

Here's advice for everyone reading this thread:
1.ask for more critique for every piece you make
2.shut the fuck up while receiving critique, nobody cares about your excuses
3.erase what you did wrong, fix it based on the critique
4.rinse and repeat

General tips: Stop putting a piece of your soul inside every training piece you create. It's just a training piece, you're supposed to make thousands of those, so if every single one has the added goal of being perfect, you'll burn yourself out even before you actually learn anything.

Training pieces are made so you learn from your mistakes. The mistakes and learning from critique are the points, not making beautiful art. In academic tradition, you wouldn't even own your training pieces. You'd just give them to the school archive, for school to use however they like.

Stop putting your self-worth in every shitty scribble, and start growing a thicker skin for critique.

Ask for more critique, and shut the fuck up while you get it.

attaboy. tuck it away for later. it's your weapon against the world and everyone who wronged you -- which is literally everyone, if you feel about it hard enough

people only live to their 80s at most

Biggest mistake I made starting out was trying to copy rather then breaking down and reinterpreting the information. Things didn't look half bad but it took forever. When I realized the mistake things took a bit of a dip at first but it quickly improved when I wasn't fussing about whether or not things should be the thirds of a millimeter more to the left.

Careful teaching is also a skill, giving people the answer is the worst thing you can do. Try to phrase your words in a way so they come to the answer themselves, this way they can take what they learned and apply it not only in art but everything they do in life

thanks, good to hear I'm somewhat on the right track then, here's another 1 hour sketch I did. Hair gives me the most problems, and so does perspective, she's not looking the way the original reference intended, my drawing shows her looking down to the right more while the original is her staring directly at your perspective
