always good to wipe your arse with the worthless leaf flag. but to be completely honest your oct 2020 was better in every way. july 2021 is so boring. they're just standing there at a flat angle. no real facial expression. nothing interesting going on. colors are dull. dont know what to tell you

>You've improved in a few subtle but important ways. Your facial shaping looks significantly less robotic, our facial features less stilted and more organic, and overall it shows many marks of just getting a handle on things. And that doesn't come with reading books. I must admit your rendering isn't good though. Can't comment much on that - I can't do it myself.

i'm not insulted i agree. thanks for the compliments. i can do better as in pic related if i really push myself but usually i can't really push myself.

They can't comprehend it, nor are willing to change in order to do so.

For them, it's more important to show that they aren't inferior by bashing ANY resource they can't grasp than to actually improve.

I mean sure, but you need to select a focal point - your values being flat here is your white highlight being strewn all over the place and as you can see here, your sails practically blend with the sky when im sure you mean for it to stand out. You might want to try introducing more darker tones to help the flow of the painting

It's very nice! I understand your construction logic, but how do you get the proportions right? Do you measure with certain landmarks? I'm terrible measuring things by eye, i tried using the pencil way, but it also doesn't help. I'm really considering using the Scott RObertson method and going full grid for everything...

I have a tube of WN titanium white gouache but it's so weird. I honestly thought it dries opaque, but nope. At first it looks like it covers the watercolor layer, but when it dries it's more like a semi-transparent or semi-opaque paint. I tried with various concentrations but only if I put down 1-2 mm layer of paint straight from tube it looks covering. Am I suffering from wrong expectations here?

I'm trying to use white gouache for highlights and for mixing with watercolor to get some opaqueness where I need it. I get that you need to get right consistency of gouache and that layering should be thick over thin. But it's not really opaque. Maybe WN gouache is meh?

Post drawings paintings etcetera you’ve made in traditional media for critique. The art should be something you have personally made. This is not a painting reference dump thread.

>1. Learn to draw. Pixel art is only a medium, like paint or charcoal. It has his gimmicks but still relies on the same fundamentals as any other medium.
So, as somebody who was literally never drawn as a hobby, what do I do? Do I just look through the pixel art tools, tutorials and do pixel art or learn drawing first.
If so, how do I learn drawing? What type of drawing medium, etc.?

Pixel art doesn't really require you to know how to draw per se, just an understanding of general visual fundamentals like 3D forms, values, colors, etc since you're free to push pixels around with zero muscle memory required. You can be a great pixel artist without ever drawing a line of figure drawing in your life, but e.g. figure drawing will help you understand 3D forms in space which will directly benefit your pixel art, which is just a way of depicting images, the same principles apply and carry over regardless of medium. You can start with pixel art and never touch a pen in your life, but you will still need to "click" on the understanding of the basics so going through the same beginner drawing exercises in pixel art would be helpful.

My recommendation would be that whatever you do, make sure you have a goal you're REALLY passionate about achieving because faltering when self-taught is easy as fuck, I know I wasted years dilly dallying when I didn't know why I wanted to learn to draw, but ever since I got a clear goal in mind I've been at it for hours every day.

Some resources that illuminated the basics to me are:
>Perspective Made Easy by Ernest Norling - the very basics of depicting things in space, might seem daunting but it's simple as fuck when you go through it, very clear language, any knowledge of how 3D computer models work will mesh nicely with the perspective knowledge from this book
>Vilppu's Drawing Manual (both book and his video course) - goes over the forms of the body and how they interact and how to depict them but the knowledge can be applied to anything
>Sam Nielson's Fundamentals of Lighting - just the first couple of videos really clarified 3D forms to me and how lighting is necessary to depict them
>How to Pick nice colors (Tutorial for beginners) YT video by MortMort - dead simple principles for choosing appealing colors in pixel art
