This is what im working on rn
You can look at it like how it is (in landscape orientation) or upside down and different things will show up.

This was done extremely quick and was a present for a kid which is why it is quite lacking.

Push contrast. Sharper where you want focus. Some clearer shapes, some less clear. Saturation variety, too. Variety is important for interest. Cool stuff, anon. Really different.

I do recognize some of my habits are a little stubborn and end up killing some possible boons
Ive been avoiding realism for a while so I am going to practice more with that I think.

For most of these you need to rotate your phone 90° clockwise because at least on clover it is showinf these with the binding on the top. If theyre in portrait orientation for you then never mind.

This one is supposed to be in landscape mode
Also if you see mushroom imagery it is not cuz DUDE SHROOMS LMAO
I like mycology somewhat is all.
>>
>>3804975
I agree
I my mother has called on of my acrylic paintings "mud" because even though she liked how it looked, it had as much contrast as a slice of spongecake.

these are just shitty mandalas
maybe draw one thing at a time anon cause now its just squigles with here a there a shitty meditating dude

>>3805027
don't drawn you paper in water this isn't a swimming pool
also let your colours dry when adding a new one unless you want them to mix
think before you do shit

this is the exact same shit i make when i take to much drugs and draw
>>
>>3805171
Ive been drawing this stuff without that kind of drug influence tho.
I did grow up around buddhism quite a bit but
>>3805027 was around the end of middle school before i even knew what weed was
Also
My stuff looks nothing like mandalas
I would agree that it often becomes quite repetitive and drab but I wouldn't compare it to pic related or any of pic related's variations. I am generally trying to communicate some specific ideas but there are a couple where i mix nonsense with sense or its just pure nonsense(or the idea is just not being communicated effectively at all.)

I do appreciate the comment about drying however, I get quite impatient because I come up with ideas as im going and then just wanna throw them in immediately.
>>
>>3804944
Everything. This is shit. Nobody cares how long it took or how much work you had

Nothing

Every fundamental. You ignored the sticky and made stupid questions.
>>
>>3805268
I didnt break any rules really except forgetting to screen the images and then send to put them at proper size.

Just curious. What do you mean by every fundamental
I agree there is a lot missing with my art but I am more asking for some direction for where I can look to illustrate some better stuff.
I sometimes start with a base concept or general blueprint for the whole thing that i fill in. If im missing every fundamental is something like this fleshed out also completely bad or is it the fact many if the ones i posted lack actual artistic fidelity and are just a bunch of patterns. When i was doing that pattern stuff i was more into optical art
>>
>>3805355
how about you first practice every invidual part before brain farting it all on paper

like this
>learn you spirit eyes
>learn proportions of the budah dudes
>learn the gesture of the budah dudes
>learn how to draw smoke from the insence
>learn shadows
>learn composition
>learn color
>learn accents
and after that smash it togheter

cause now it looks like brainless goop that i'd draw when i was bored in class.

also take time with aquarelle
so i doesn't become a runny mess

this is something i did when sitting in the forest, it isn't my best but you get the jest
>>
>>3805355
PROPORTIONS
PERSPECTIVE
LIGHT
SHADOW
COMPOSITION

I SHALL BANISH YOU TO /BEG/ NOW
>>
>>3806138
Ok i appreciate that thank you
I was avoiding actualling gitting gud cuz some artists advised just doodling until youre good but I think I am approaching it wrong
>>3806156
:^) ok pops
>>
My mom was an insane lady who painted pretty decnet brainfart pieces kinda similar but it was always shit and she was a ngmi partially because she never tried actually studdying and ahe never grasped that every part of the piece shouldnt be in the same level of detail it comes off too graphic thats not a problem for yet as you seem to have no knowledge whatsoever at this point so rejoice you can start from a clean slate
Things you can improve learn to draw individual elements and how to put them together to make a composition it doesnt have to be realistic but it needs to be consistent throughout tbe piece
Things i like, you are drawing thats good
You are missing thoughtfullness and premeditated thought
>>
>>3806270
you also shouldn't go down the road most /ic/ people do and that is just grind to get gud

you should try and improve but also keep having a good time

Like i'll have days i'm just studying how to draw, but i'll have other days i'm drawing for fun so you'll keep being motivated
combine the 2 and ygmi
>>
>>3806395
Ah ok
Yea this is more sensible to me
The "Illustrator" artsyle is quite boring in my eyes but stuff like Moebius, traditional chinese landscape painters, and a few others really catch my eye
I like stuff like pic related

Is just doing studies (drawing an object) good enough or should I have books and such to help

the illustrator style has nothing to do with getting good
when studying you need to think what you are doing.
you can buy books, but you can find everything on the web. there should be moments where you think "today i'll try learn x" and then you take time to do research and practice. while other days you fuck around and brain fart. but the next time you brain fart after a study you will incorporate your studies without realising it. that's how you make progress
drawing from real life is the best practice you can do.

>also moebius is the bom.
>>
>>3806423

Ok i appreciate your advice
I kind of already figured this but was hesitating a bit I think so im glad i came here for a little direction.
