Why does it hurt your brain anon what is the problem? Note, I haven't read that book.
I would do both. Because perspective suck and you need to grind it.

Perspective made easy is way more friendly

Then die.
Exactly. This book is the most accurate guide to the intricacies of advanced perspective, but it covers the basics as though it's a refresher before diving into weirder stuff to do with them rather than actually teaching them for the first time. Anyone starting out can understand and apply perspective made easy immediately, and then should move into this one for how to do all the stuff they'll need down the line if they're serious about mastering the subject
Funnily enough he died from some random mistake same as his son. Food for thought.

Does anyone know any other books similar to Keys to Drawing? Books that teach you general fundamentals of drawing step-by-step?

The text is horrible. I tried reading it and almost vomited. Probably would have started learning how to draw 3 years earlier if not for that book.
Chiming in on this thread with regards to "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain".

I went through about half of the book before giving up on it and deciding to go my way with my studies.

My issue I had with the book was this constant frustration with how the book sort of acted like everything was making sense for you, the assumption that something was clicking in your brain. I would love to quote passages from the Definitive 4th Edition, but I can't actually think of where such statements happen.

There's no problem with the exercises to some degree, but the most frustrating ones were ALWAYS the ones where you had to use a viewfinder and an erasable marker to draw something you're looking at, like your hand or a hallway.

I gave up where the book was asking me to draw someones head in profile, but I believe the kicker was checking a chapter after to see if there was anything helpful on translating light values to pencil sketching. You know, the important thing when you're fucking teaching someone to draw with pencils, paper, and an eraser.

Like, I'm not that good at drawing, and I will say that Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain did help build some confidence, but I feel that it's attempts may actually be more harm than good to the would-be artist.

It'd PROBABLY be more helpful to attend one of the five day seminars that still happen that the books writings are basically just the self-learning version of.

You'd have to see if one will be in your city or nearby in the future.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Nothing in particular, just looking out for more options
Get different resources for different fundamentals.

1. Not every book will work for everyone. Sometimes this particular teaching style the author tries to do just doesn't click so always have some different resources available.

2. It's better to have a book just cover one topic as it will have vastly more depth to it than if you would read a book trying to cover everything or a lot of topics.

Don't limit yourself to step by step teaching even if it's convenient. There doesn't exist that one perfect learning resource so you will have to settle for various books for a full course.
The difficulty with books like this is that a lot of it is training an artist into understanding how to observe, which is a prereq to being able to teach yourself. But drawing from observation is best done through example and classroom assistance, and books are naturally going to struggle to put the words down needed to show you something easiest taught one on one, in person, with demonstration. Add to that the people writing them trying to target the normie audience and you have a recipe for something unreadable.

The exercises are the point but the explanations for them make them difficult or hard to understand the reasoning behind it. But people always skip this stuff and end up getting nothing out of their studies for a year until they finally stumble on their own into that observation part clicking, so for those without a class or willing to gamble on a time waster, you're left with the best bad options.

I agree with the people who have already replied.
Like, you already have an artstyle. No one draws in the exact same way as you. It's just how you like drawing things. When you draw more and more you see patterns in how you like doing things and your style becomes more consistent. But it's always going to change aswell, because you as a person will change.

>stop liking what I dont like
Your style is just your shorthand solution to visual problems. ‘How do I register a pretty face in the viewers mind’ ‘how do I register depth in this form’ ‘how do I register a feeling of softness’ ‘how do I register a feeling of volume’ ‘threatening’ ‘angry expression’ ‘ahaego’ etc.
On one side you have photo realism and on the other emoji faces.
Obviously it can get infinitely subtle, which is where all the old masters sit.

>find out the most successful artists don't use construction and never did
Why do you guys shill construction so hard? Ever think that if somebody can't figure out how to stop symbol drawing that maybe they don't deserve to be able to draw?
24 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
This is literally my story. Think its just how it works when ur a complete noob. You gotta understand what you have to understand before you can understand it. So its never a direct path
You still need to learn what it is first. Your talking about learning to draw like Gi without ever learning a basic perspective grid. Actual brainlet spotted
>"I don't make assumptions."
>immediate makes assumptions

Holy shit haha this has got to be a troll right? Surely nobody lacks self-awareness to such a degree
to prove that you are really not bullshitting people for a shittposting thread
also I'm a bit curious who that successful artists
Of course construction drawing isn't necessary. It was created as a tool to simplify drawing without models present. That being said, unless you have models available for all your drawings then you will have an uphill battle without some basic construction knowledge. Also, Bacon drew and painted from models almost every time. He kept tons of photos of the people he drew for reference as well.

Hi, this is my art.
What do you say about?
wow that's fricking sick dude XD keep it up
Looks like something a trucker might have on the back of his car. Not a compliment by the way.

I recommend looking at actual succesful artists in whatever field of art you want to be in.

Whether digital or traditional, look at the best, get some direction, try to make your art not look like edgy hot topic trash.
don't do it to em like that
Edgy crap, looks like something i would did in my 14.
I say if it makes you happy keep doing it.

Critique ?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
What kind of critique you lookiing for?
You have very feminine finger nails. Can you be my GF?
It looks good but there isn't much to talk about.
We can't see the drawing with your hand in front of it, stop posing, are you doing that on purpose anon? What's the point? We're not on Instagram here. The frame doesn't capture the entirety of the drawing either, it's cropped on the right.
There'd be more to talk about with a full body drawing. Even if it's bad you'll get better critique out of it than with a shy portrait half hidden with your hand.
Also get over here for crits instead of creating your own threads:
Nice lines and colors. Better than most of /ic/ I'd say.
It's just an anime face you dumbass.

Thoughts on two handed drawing?

shouldnt be having any wrist pain what so ever...
>can draw with both hands at once
>now I can do TWO celebrity portrait photocopies!

Is this what being a normie is?
the non-dominant hand is the most underutilized tool in art
imagine going through all this trouble just for (You)s. artists are so desperate to get noticed nowadays. yeesh
Any repetitive movement with time generates pain. Also drawing from the shoulder in the case of digital art is a meme.

I'm also trying to get better at making beats, this one came out pretty good I think
8 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
>sounds like you're like trying to whisper the lyrics while your parents are asleep in the room next door.
that's my aesthetic though
The beat is actually alright, I was pleasantly surprised. Then I heard you rap...oof. Even Eminem doesn’t say nigga lol, you’re not getting a pass if you try showing this to anyone my man. Other than that there’s no flow or emotion in your delivery at all. It sounds like you’re just reading the lyrics off of a sheet instead of really spitting them. You should break it down line by line and think about which words you want to place emphasis on, how you’re gonna flow from one bar to the next, etc. also work on your clarity and enunciation, the words should be very clear and easy to parse. There should be more confidence In your delivery as well, right now it seems like you’re sitting hunched over in the corner whispering bars into your iPhone 4 while your gf is getting fucked in the next room. I’d recommend studying how someone like Earl Sweatshirt, MF Doom or maybe Aesop Rock compose their rhymes and rap. Or really whoever else you’re into. But yeah, the beat was decent albeit repetitive. I’m sure you’re delivery will improve if you keep practicing. Keep at it Brian.

well, it's at a pediatric hospital, so probably more the whimsy than anything but yeah

and that makes all art worthwhile in the end. What is better than bringing a smile to a young child's face?
