Guys when i was 5 years old i figured out how to draw a cube with near perfect perspective. All teachers were amazed because no one ever taught me. It just happened and from there i figured out all perspectice rules within a week or 2. I dont tell people this in real life because i dont like to brag or be an ass. Does anyone know y this happened to me? What does it mean? Am i secretly a genious who shouldve pursued art? Also i just found this book on my book shelf from the 80s. Should i read it or is it outdated?
Hey fellow artists. Why is it that people here brlieve so deeply in studying loomis? Why does one feel that everyone needs to draw a certian way or learn certian way or have a certian foundation? This whole thing of learning the art like a formula seems wrong. why not learn by just observing and drawing everyday and develop ur own vey unique style with your own very unique foundation?
The entire purpose of writing down information is so that other people can read it. The only reason we live in the world we do today with tvs and cars and lightbulbs is because people wrote down what they discovered so that other people can read it rather than spending all that time discovering the thing again. You can't go around reinventing the wheel. It would take you well over a lifetime to figure out the human anatomy, how perspective works, how to use colour, etc on your own.
I've been trying Hyper-realistic art for 3 months and this is one of my best works so far. I would love some feedback to make my future works better. Also, someone in school wanted to pay me to do these works and I'm wondering if anyone has experience and can tell me how much these are worth.
I can either go to grad school or move to an art city and try to start getting into exhibitions. Grad school is extremely expensive in the US and school in general is getting a little boring to be honest. Right now I'm a junior in my undergrad 20 yrs old.

>>2296269 You were stupid enough to (probably go into crippling debt in order to) go to art school, and now you're thinking about spending even more money on a degree that will not even help you get a job at wal-mart?
Yes, absolutely, you should go to grad school. May as well go full retard.
>>2296166 One of the best draftsmen around. His painting is rather uninspired and weak imo, just muddy mushy messes. His sculpture is okay but nothing special.
I don't see why he would be considered one of the greats though. Nothing he's doing is outstanding enough to make him go down in history, and he brings nothing new to the table. Plus his real strength lies in his initial studies and his drawings. He has no finished work of any real value.
I guess we all can pretty much agree that Michelangelo is by far the greatest artist who has ever lived, right?
When nature mixes some degree of inner talent, great ambition, neurotic egocentrism, enormous pride, great capacity for work, obsession, physical strength and resistance, all in the same person, the results are truly wonderful.
>>2296133 >Michelangelo is by far the greatest artist I don't think it's possible to make that claim about ANY artist. He is one of the best, but there is no single best artist, let alone one that is far ahead of others.
Plus tastes change. What you say is the best may not be agreed by people in the future. Hell, for hundreds of years Raphael was considered the greatest Renaissance artist and only in the past 150 years or so did Michelangelo replace him. I mean personally I like... Comment too long.

>>2296141 If I remember correctly he was admired for his composition, draftsmanship, and the emotion he put in his figures and images. But yeah his influence was massive, that's why the Pre-Raphaelites came about--they felt people were taking too much from Raphael and rejected that as an aesthetic and standard.
Hi /ic/. I just got back into drawing around March this year after having stopped for a few years. I'm nowhere near as good as I want to be yet. I've been wanting to get a tablet for a while now, but should I wait until I'm at the level of competency I want on paper first? Also, should I go for a more expensive tablet right off the bat, or start with something cheaper?
>>2296079 Get a tablet whenever you want. You'll get the most out of it when you have solid drawing skills already though. Nothing wrong with getting one while you still are learning to draw, just make sure you still practice pencil and paper at the same time.
In my opinion it is better to invest in a good tablet that will last years rather than buy cheap then later need to buy another nicer one. Just get a good one at the start if you are serious about art, even if you are not yet that skilled.
No. Even the randomness is influenced by previous images archived in the brain. Is you put a baby trying to draw, the only gonna make what he has seen so far, if you put a fetus trying to draw, he didn't draw anything, because he knows nothing, but if you put a blind man to try to draw, he can do it himself, and his drawings will be guided by perceptions it receives from the other direction (basically touch and sound) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1IY6plQKGI
I don't think it's possible to draw something that's literally imperceptible to humans. If you want, you could try to draw the 'strings' from string theory. iirc, strings are essentially 'rolled-up' dimensions that make no sense and essentially can't be explained visually.
Anything you try to draw, no matter how simplistic, or complex, or abstract, can always be related to something that exists. While the picture you have posted here probably... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
