Has anyone here ever placed a piece of art into a museum for shits and giggles?
Made this with my roommate in a mood of weird and tired creativeness and that's what we plan to do with it. There's a museum in our city where only garbage like this is on exhibition so no one will actually probably notice it for a while. Just wondering if that's a thing many people do these days though. I don't wanna be "that guy" who does things like that if it's a semi common thing.

>>4020970
Its filled with fruit pulp and is definitely gonna rot till sunday when we plan on putting it out there on display. On the one hand it makes it much more disgusting and would make it all the funnier if someone actually took the time to contemplate its meaning or some shit, on the other hand its just plain shit and the rest of the piece does actually have some form of aesthetic color composition, even though it doesnt show as much on the picture due to poor lighting.
I think well keep it on for now but if it gets actually bad well have to get rid of it...

this person i see around talked about how he want his own career to be "make it" by drawing and making fun of post modern/abstract shit.
I don't wanna judge but urs probably is a niche. its amongst artists that we know bullshit art are bullshit but audiences are fucking NPCs so I would say go ahead try it and chances of "make it" by bullshitting to the top too.
>>
>>4020983
Im not gonna make it with art anytime soon. I just painted the face cause I found the paint-by-number canvas and paints and wanted to start learning about painting anyways. Then the next day my roommate went ahead and started using the pulp-bag to put more paint on and we kinda went ahead from there.
Neither of us is in any way an actual artist aspiring or otherwise and we really would just do it for shits and giggles. Thing is just that if thats like a thing that people do on the regular, I wouldnt do it. If its a thing nobody really does (I remember banksy did it once in the louvre) it would be funny especially when the staff do figure it out, but I dont want them seeing it and thinking thats its one of those faggots again who think theyre so fucking funny...

I've pored over the reference and book threads, but mech drawing sources seem to be few and far between.

Anyone got any tutorials / books / references for drawing Mecha?
>>
>>4020698
-Modern day James has a series on mechs
-Watch Robot pencil draw and attempt to imitate the technique
-draw machines from reference

making mechs and robots is mostly about applying a strong visual library to basic forms. The fastest route to improve is to beef your visual library.

I've been trying to mech too.
I think you might want to dive into technical drawing techniques?
All i drew are engines, computer chips and boards (heatsinks are pretty good for mechs style too) and some blue prints.
Trying to replicate the parts and reference them from life.
It's like still life but you have to memories the objects and combine them together.

Without Loomis, it cannot be seen.

Not overly rendered to the point of being glossy, gradient mush. Soul is where you can see the line art of the artist and think about it not as someone critiquing bad fumdemtals, but as someone observing the production process as visible in the work itself.

Hence the upset people are feeling towards the new Lion King. Soul vs soulless.

desu I wouldn't call all of them 'soulless', the PS3 version is the most technically competent, but doesn't ape the original style completely - it can look off with how exaggerated the expressions are on its semi-generic artstyle, but Umineko without them would be like with no music - utterly shit
pachinko/new PC is ehhhhh, it tries to have the original's 'soul' while adding its own falavour but ends up between alright and fucking atrocious, the Chiru sprites are better by a mile, though they aren't trying to reinvent the wheel this time and are mostly original's in a different artstyle

When did I claim that my description was the absolute definition of art? It's simply a pattern one can observe in things most people have considered art over the last few centuries. The creation of art is in of itself a 'playful' act, creating art for the sake of creating art, like dancing for the sake of dancing. It's different from engineering for the sake of repairing things or programming for the sake of creating a tool to be used, different from creating entertainment for the sake of pleasing your audience.

how are there people on youtube who can record themselves drawing for 24 hours straight (youtuber ZHC)? i would cut my pinky off to have that kind of discipline. i can't stay seated in my chair for longer than an hour, then when i take a "break" i never come back. i am my own worst enemy

>ONLY DRAW 1 HOUR A DAY EVERYDAY
how the hell do you work professionally if you can't draw for more than one hour? and, if you worked professionally and made good money why do you feel you didn't "make it" yet? your post confuses me

also i'm more or less in the same boat but improving. it's all about habits and building them through discipline.
anons here gave good advice but after all the tips and tricks you just have to gain the guts to force yourself and draw. eventually, you'll do it enough you'll stop hating it and it won't be forced anymore, just something you got used to.

if you want it so bad make it the only thing you can do.

Do I have to set up a perspective grid for every fucking drawing I do?

Like, I don’t mind, and I’m totally willing to do it because drawing is fun for me no matter what, but is there a quicker way to approximate a perspective? If the vanishing point is too close it completely ruins the fucking image and it drives me insane.

>>4019590
You shouldn't "feel bad" if you need a perspective gris though. Manga environment artists use it all the time. It's a tool. You use it if you need it.

Hell, a lot of people's work could have benefitted from a grid.
>>
>>4019584
I'm going to assume you're beg, but no. Eventually if you keep up with fundies and keep finishing pieces you will eventually just be able to create scenes in 3d within your mind and translate it to paper easily. At that point you only really set up perspective lines if you want to do accurate buildings or interiors.
>>
>>4019584
You draw a couple lines. You never need a grid unless doing some fisheye lens type drawing. If you are so autistic you need one everytime, print it off and use a light box or do it digitally.
>>
If you have good mastery over form you should at least be able to sketch then correct perspective without a grid. I mean it can be helpful as a reference tool but you don't need it.
>>
>>4019584
draw an outline of a box, it works the same way as a perspective grid, 1000 times faster.

I know you wanna believe that your work is garbage and you'll never improve but the truth is that if you're here it shows you even remotely care about your work, and if you do draw every day eventually you'll make it, whether you like it or not. Sorry to break it to you.
