At first I too was thinking that "talent" is meaningless in a way that it's not that important compared to hard work. But after months and months of drawing and getting no real progress I started to think, that there are indeed some things that determine our potential. Then I just stopped drawing for a month because I was tired of seeing constant failures and now when I want to go back to it again - I literally cant draw at all. What's the fucking point of learning when you forget everything anyway.Talent is way more... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>2308708 It's easier to become proficient at music in my opinion. The number of child prodigies in music vs art makes that apparent.
Also, in music you can be considered a master just by how you play, but you can play the music of Bach or Mozart or whoever. In art you need to "compose" every time you make an image.
So I would say the best comparison would be a composer to an artist. You get young children and teens who can play fantastically but they rarely ever compose, and when they do it won't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Mastering the instrument is like mastering your pencil. I'd say learning to play already existing music is comparable in difficulty to drawing directly from reference. When it comes to composing good music it becomes far harder to compare difficulty.
So I just started working with digital media a month ago, I have lots of experience with traditional media and I'm overwhelmed by the color choices.
I'm planning to make a palette/swatch to narrow down the options like choosing colors from a box of painting, anyone has tried the same before or has been in a situation like mine? I have several different palettes from different sources like pic related and I plan to narrow them down as preferences develope.
Well if you have experience in traditional media, try and think about color in the same way. You don't really have to mix colors in digital media, you just select what color you want. Obviously you can layer things and blend, but it's different from traditional media in that the steps aren't >find what color you want >mix that color >apply paint but is instead >find what color you want >apply paint I...

>>2308645 I don't think too many people lay out their entire palette before beginning a painting. The most common technique I've seen is to pick your colors with the color picker (the slider/wheel with the hue and a box with the saturation and value range of the hue) and use the eye dropper to sample colors you've already used from the painting. Ctrl+Paint advocates building up a mini-palette on a separate layer and actually mixing the colors to get new ones. I think the first method is superior, but the second... Comment too long.

>>2308520 At the moment there aren't any. Social media has made forums outdated/obsolete and they have died off and are ghosts of days past.
You're best off trying to find a small circle of artists whose opinions you can trust, and form a group that skypes or does google hangouts together. You need to create your own tiny community since no large public ones exist any more.

Hey, I haven't been here for years. My drawing has been on hold since married and kids. I recently started watching Mark Crilley videos on YouTube. They're really getting me motivated to start drawing again. Has he ever been on this board?
>>2308490 The instant I saw your pic Mark came into my mind. As for your drawing even though I can't critic it properly I will say that it doesn't have that nice satisfying feel on the eye when you see a good drawing.
>>2308379 Usually but not always: 1)clockwise 2)left to right 3)top to bottom Right handed. I hold the pencil a bit weirdly I think though, like if you gently touch all the tips of your fingers together to a point that's sorta how I hold it.
>>2308379 I used to not care but then I realized that I obvious had to take advantage of the coriolis force effect to improve my circle. So now I draw my circles in the same direction that water flow down a drain, which depends on if I'm north or south of equator.
The further near the poles I am the more forceful my circles become, to the point where I can almost not contain them within a single sheet of paper. Amazing stuff.
Last thread: >>2304755 Post your current drawing here and give constructive critique to others!
Please make sure your posted image is clear, downsized to around 1000 pixels wide, rotated to the correct orientation, and that any unused space is cropped. If you want critique on a drawing from the previous thread, you can delete it there and repost in this one.

you guys are so lazy about making new draw threads. anyways heres this. i tried doing something different with the plates because I think the way they are hatched is too stylistic, and not helpful enough. obviously there's no substitute for life drawing but I felt like this was better practice for me than doing a million vertical lines.
