>>2345982 learning the basic concept is easy as fuck, applying and exploring what you can do with the fundamentals on the other hand is the hardest part and is going to take even years. There's no shortcut unless you're god's gifted little snowflake.
That is easy. Imagine practicing drawing one thing for 20 hours. Just drawing a banana in 1 position for 20 hours. You should be able to draw that banana in that certain position rather well. But that wont mean you are good at drawing.
You will just be good at drawing that one banana in one position.
>at the time i think you missed my point i was wondering if you think having the same skillset as, say, Byron, means the same thing in contemporary culture. If one would want to be a master one would, presumably, want to further the boundaries and possibilities of his own medium, which is a desire with far different implications in the 21st century than in the 19th century.
However, I'm reading your post again and it sounds like you just want to paint like a 19th century painter.
So I'm looking for a tattoo drawing, and since I cant draw myself, thought of look for your help.
It should be like this image, but i was thinking of a cooler bear, maybe some braid. More viking-ish, and probably wouldn't draw the face, just helmet and beard. Would anyone have a drawing like that or willing to make one if had any ideas with my description?
Would tattoo it maybe with a sketch-style trace..don't know yet
The sticky is too advanced. I've been learning to draw on an Intuos Draw tablet for a day now, and my line work is childish. I think I might be able to get better by just drawing simple shapes for weeks then slowly improve and move onto shading and such, but I've heard you guys talk about "practicing wrong." Is un-curated practicing a bad idea for someone who is drawing at a ten year old level?
Draw some stuff from reference. Look at your drawing and focus on the parts that differ the most from the refference. Draw it again and try to correct your mistakes. Repeat this process with another references till you get good.
If Loomis is giving you trouble watch some of Proko's videos for starters, he covers similar concepts and once you get those you should ideally be able to understand what Loomis is getting at. Loomis is suggested not because he's the only option, but because he generally covers the things you need starting out. If Proko goes over your head you're hopeless though.
white and black is enough. if you have budget problems I have a few suggestions.
instead of buying a canvas every time you can paint of cardboard.
you need acrylic gesso. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gesso
either that or wood glue (+ white acrylic paint).
I prefer the second option. I apply a thin layer on cardboard. I don't use white arcylic because I will paint over it anyway and it is waste of paint. Wait for it to dry. Now you can paint with oils on cardboard without fear it will fall apart.
>>2345573 this is you? its gorgeous! i'd start with like a tube of burnt sienna or umber and practice underpainting on a white gessoed panel, cardboard is a little questionable in my opinion but particle board or cheap wood panels are great. ive had teachers in the past recommend gesso-ing rives bfk paper but i really hated working on that, and you had to heavily gesso it to get a completely non-absorbing surface. also pva size the panels before gessoing.

>>2345462 Well, it could be better, if I'm being honest. But what matters is improving. Perhaps you could study a reference point, break it up into shapes, and replicate that? Try to learn a few shading elements and ways to add in texture, and it should be much better. Practice makes perfect.
