Do I need to be skilled at maths to understand perspective and vanishing points? My head burns whenever I look at pics like the pic related, or try to read a tutorial. My brain goes blank. Is this something you understand eventually after drawing from references without understanding the logic? Sorry for whining a lot but I'm afraid I'm stuck at drawing people from one point of view for eternity.
>>2600193 Pictures like those can seem intimidating, but perspective is easy to understand once you get the jargon out of the way.
All that image is really showing is that there's a bunch of cuboids (basically 3D rectangles) that are all the same, but LOOK different because of their placement in the image. If you extend the parallel lines of these shapes (which is what the image is doing with those extended lines), they'll eventually (appear to) meet. Where they appear to meet is the vanishing point.

>>2603303 Eceleb threads are fucking cancer That being said, he's simply a mediocre artist. He seems to have a good grasp of the fundamentals and when he sticks to realism hes fine but his style is just terrible
>>2603305 >He seems to have a good grasp of the fundamentals
This is actually why I don't like his artwork, because he does not have a good grasp of the fundamentals. His lines are "shaky", there's not enough confidence in his strokes, and even in recent drawings he will still make chicken-scratch marks for "hard" curves. It's sad. Obviously, some of his drawings are good, but most of his work is either bad or mediocre.
All in all, not worth paying... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Why is every beginner thread start with a stupid human face or body Do any of the poster realise how overly difficult that is for a novice to draw that realistically It should start from still life with simple shapes So that they can slowly move into more complex Geometric object
Anyone that is REALLY new to art in here hear my advice. DO NOT START FROM DRAWING & SHADING FACES. If you are discouraged by lack of progress IT IS normal CAUSE YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO

>>2601586 >Why is every beginner thread start with a stupid human face or body Because its more fun than a still life. However I agree that Still life teaches some important stuff. seeing shapes and shadows, linecontroll and how to measure to name some
This is pretty true ime, senpai. I fell for the Loomis meme and got real deep into Drawing the Heads and Hands well before I was ready, ended up giving up on it because I just couldn't make it work, and just started drawing simple objects around my house like chairs and fruit and shit, and came back to Loomis a few months later and was blown away with how much better I understood it. Loomis is good but shitposting him like people do on this board... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

So I bought a medium Intuos Pro with the intent to learn to draw with it - thinking, that if I learned how to draw on it, that it'd ultimately work in my favor for what I'd like to do (digital art, 3d sculpting, similar), instead of following a more traditional method.
Unfortunately, I'm a lazy asshole who procrastinates on everything, so I've had this great piece of equipment for the last year, and have pulled it out probably less than a dozen times. Over the last few months, I've been working actively to improve myself and to stop acting like a child, but I still don't have the necessary foundational skills to properly utilize this tablet, plus, my hand-eye coordination between a tablet and a monitor has not been developed enough, though I know that comes with time using it.
My choices are: A. Put my time into something else and appreciate actual artists work. B. Sell the tablet and go to a traditional pen-and-paper method until I'm decent enough to consider a tablet again (probably a few years of actual study, imo) C. Stick it out with the tablet.
Thoughts? Side note, the tablet is in damn near new condition, still have original packaging. If I sold it, I'm hoping to get $250-300 for it, since brand new is $350, and it looks like these guys retain their value. If I sell it, my next tablet would likely be one of those little Intuos Draw ones for under $100, just to keep photoshop editing skills up.
I like the classical painters AND the abstract expressionists and 90% inbetween. I have seen very few conceptual artworks I thought were actually intelligent though.
I enjoy a work by Millais or Rembrandt as I would Shakespeare or Melville, and I enjoy a Pollock like I would a poem from John Ashbery. I have far more respect for the former but the latter has a time, a place, and a mood where I can enjoy it immensely.

why should you be sad you got surpassed by an entity with infinitely more resources than you. Calculators have been able to do math far more complex, cars go faster, machines are more efficient. AIs are nothing more than another tool. It's what we do with these tools that ultimately matters.
Because we should not have to make new threads or post in draw threads with our fundamental exercises. Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make your mom proud.
AVOID asking unrelated questions, there is a question thread for that.

Hi, I want to start drawing and want to know if I should learn it from any particular book or not. I did some research and read that Drawing on the right side of the brain is a real good one... what do you guys think?
I am a gaming artist. I have tried to make art both at work and at home while high or drunk. It might improve creativity a bit but it lowers skill by A LOT. Only thing that sems to improve my art is ONE beer because it helps me drown out the office noise and focus better.
>>2603252 If i'm high enough, i get really good ideas, and can easily get them done. But it doesn't last long; i get too paranoid and yittery after being high for a while, and then i just want to go to sleep .
This man once drew me this really nice drawing of space engineer Isaac Clarke holding a pigeon, it was several years ago, ever since then i have been using it as my profile picture I came to realize that i don't have the original artwork saved, so i went on deviantart to try and find it but it seems that he has deleted his account, maybe?
I know the dude who made it browses 4chan, so i hope that the dood sees this and reposts the drawing :)
>>2600722 I don't draw a lot of fight scenes, but it has happened on a few occasions, it's pretty fun and challenging. I collect refs pics when they pop up and martial arts films are pretty good for them too. Also, some mango-artists are a good inspiration.
I used to work at an antique furniture shop and my favorite part of the process was staining. I considered it an art. Getting fresh untouched furniture and putting a whole new coat was the best. But what is your favorite type of stain?
Does the pickled oak stain lighten the wood? If so I shoulda used that shit. I built a music instrument out of spalted beech and it was super sexy and white but the linseed oil I finished it with darkened and yellowed it a bit.
