Never properly credited, unpaid crunch. Don't even know how to file their own taxes, can't afford healthcare. Created or participated in failed kickstarters, can't maintain their patreon etc. etc.

>When I stray from all the rotely memorized shit I just end up regressing to where I was when I first started drawing.

You need an actual goal with your studies and just blind copying won't teach you much, you should be very analytical with a few copies and then even more analytical and meticulous with your "creative" attempts, and I mean really conscious and meticulous, go over everything you are doing wrong and don't do it EVER again.
OP shouldn't ever again chicken scratch or fuck up the pelvis that hard, honestly he's getting ahead of himself with anatomy and should focus more on line control and construction first.

>> No.5254776
Quoted By: >>5254825

>don't do it EVER again.
that's easy to say, especially the two examples you give. most of the learning comes from grinding and consolidating habits you pick up from just grinding for thousands of hours, you do have to be mindful; but conscious knowledge is not as important as the unconscious skill.

there are some people who can learn like you describe it, but those are a tiny minority; most people don't have the level of mindfulness to be aware of everything they're doing at all times; maybe for a few hours a day max.

>> No.5254825
Quoted By: >>5254832

>that's easy to say
Anatomy isn't easy but not chicken scratching is, it's purely a mindset shift and knowing what the fuck you're supposed to be doing.

>but conscious knowledge is not as important as the unconscious skill.
It absolutely is. OP is wasting his time with anatomy when he doesn't even get basic line control yet, 6 months of mindless grinding is worth much less than 1 week of conscious practice especially when you have a better foundation to build upon, this is particularly important for anatomy since you need good lines and construction knowledge before.
Do NOT grind things until you have good knowledge of them or else you are just grinding bad habits.

>> No.5254832

As for mindfulness, you should be doing your studies when you are most active like in the mornings, don't grind just for the sake of drawing, you can just doodle stuff you like instead.
And I really mean it when I say you should first have a good foundation, you will have a much easier time understanding bodies when you first understand 3D space for example.

how am I supposed to best learn from this book? I'm reading through it but there's no exercises written for me to do like other art books. Is the best way to learn from it to read a chapter then copy the illustrations?

26 posts omitted.
>> No.5253440

hey OP, i may be in a similar situation as you-
without predefined exercises or tasks it can be hard to practice productively

what i would recommend is to break this book up into sections and spend a while on each section until you are comfortable with that particular body part

example would be to say, okay. this day/week/month i will improve my hands- go into the hand section of the book and read it entirely, then apply what you have learnt, using the book as a reference while you are doing so, draw 100 hands, 1000 if you need to, and continue to refine it using the book as a guide- until you are pleased with it and then move on to another body part / section if you feel ready

the book doesn't need to be followed start to finish but rather used as a reference when you want to draw/practice something in particular.

think of it as a cook book- you generally don't read it cover to cover if you just wanna improve your stir-fries- you go to the stir fry section and practice that until you are making wicked stir-fry.

goodluck anon, i know you can make it

this really does! many inks for dip pens are pigment based, i could make an at home pigment based ink from these, it may take a lot of mixing but if its at all comparable to the winsor&newton metallic inks im more than pleased.
from thin strips to fully painted areas i could have a comparable matching shimmer! maybe not a uniform sheen but it may look similar to the winsor newton gold.

Would have still had my decade old intuos if I hadn't snapped the usb port on a table accidentally. Now I have an Intuos pro going on three years. The bluetooth is completely busted but it works well otherwise.
