>Any thing I can work on?

Anatomy, structure, form, line quality, perspective. Literally everything. I don't understand what you permabeg retards are looking for with these posts.

Just look at her right arm. What even is that? I understand that this is probably your first time "practicing anatomy", but what is that blob of a palm? What is that elbow? What is that forearm? Are you even trying, or are you just copying what you see from a picture? That's what you are doing right?

How about you pick up an anatomy book and learn what's beneath the skin first instead of fucking guessing what there is?

NGMI 100%.

>>names all Commie Russian or ((()))
Russians from that time period were exceptional artists so I don't see the problem with naming them because of their exceptional abilities.
Not only is Ferenc Pinter a great artist who has inspired many of my favorite concept artist / instagram artists, he has an unique style and symplification of the human form and it's rendering.
Michael Leonard it's probably one of the best artist who are still alive, he has great composition and great simplification.
J.C. Leyendecker, unlike most people I'm not a huge fan of his style, he's still far superior to Rockwell and studying his paintings has helped me in various ways, specifically rendering.
And lastly Eduard Thöny , not only is his art great for learning exageration, composition and simplification, Hitler included Eduard Thöny in the "Gottbegnadeten-Liste". So I'm not sure why you felt the need to post your silly jewish marks, you subhuman, uncultured, inbred, beg.

You do realize most of these are traced over much rougher drawings, right? Sometimes tens of thumbnails, then enlarged with a projector, then traced and re-traced numerous times. Confident lines are the last thing, only possible once the volumes and composition were slaved over. Don't jump out the window just yet, ok?

What the fuck is wrong with the krita developers? Just redownloaded it after a couple of months and every brush lags. It seems that they changed the default settings to make them lag since a weird circle now appears around them when you go to start a line. It only lags and is invisible at the start of a line. WTF is this and how do I turn it off.

You can also just project the image onto traditional medium/paper/canvas to get correct proportions.

Can playing something in the background while doing studies impede the process of learning? And do you typically put on a show or a song when you're drawing in a studying context?
>>
>>5687221
It depends on what type of person you are. If you're easily distracted or can't multitask I'd say shut it off and focus on your study. This isn't coming from me, I'm reminded of a story I heard from a world famous animator who became irate when an intern asked if he should turn on some music for him. He said he's always actively thinking hard when drawing and music would only take away his focus.
>>
>>5687238
Haha I was actually thinking about that while making this thread. It's an anecdote from Richard Williams' "The Animator's Survival Kit." As someone who's been drawing and animating since my early teens, I always assumed that NEEDING silence to work properly was bogus, but now I'm starting to feel like I'm not truly absorbing what I'm studying unless I have nothing playing.

DonI really need to sperg out with all these lines just for doing a vehicle?

>>5685669
Assuming you're posting in good faith (probably not, given this board, but whatever) you're supposed to sperg out when you're practicing so that when you're actually doing real stuff, you can just use all the intuition you got from your spergouts to make your drawings more accurate. I mean no shit no sane artist plots out every vanishing point and divides up every single box they draw, they just do exercises like this to build their intuition so they don't have to plot out every line
>>
>>5685669
No, you can start out with organic forms then refine them until they're accurate.

is that a french AMX M4 tank?
>>
>>5685669
If you're starting on technical drawing, then it's a good practice for about 3-5 days.
There are two ways to do a technical drawing:
1 - Outside-in (box) -Good for presenting an x-ray view, or cutaway view. Because it is accurate and detailed.
2 - Inside-out (expanding) -Good for presenting materials, faster drawing(fewer lines).

Of course, you can mix the two if you have to. For example; you could start to construct the roadwheels and tracks accurately, then use them as references point to draw the rest of the tank.

How the fuck do I study drawing fundies?
Does making quickposes timed exercises count as study?
Does drawing from real life photos count as studies?
Does copying a certain style count as study?

Studying is learning

How do you learn mathematics? You don't just copy without thinking.. you ask questions, you fill in the holes in your knowledge.

For example, say you want to study anatomy
Well draw a figure showing all the muscles.
If you can't do it, write down which bits you couldn't do.
Then open an anatomy book and look at those areas. Make recreations of them if you like, drawing something is similar to writing text. the act of doing it helps you remember it.
And then finally next time you draw a figure, maybe you will draw that part correctly.

If you are studying values.. draw a scene, does it look right? if not, why not? Look at real life, look at other art, ask yourself what is different between yours and theirs.
>>
>>5685041
To study an art piece means to understand what makes the piece the way it is.
>Oh dude this painting looks sick
What makes the painting look that way?
Why did the artist paint it that way?
Who is the painter? (In terms of his/her personality and preference in their works)
Try to guess what was going on in the mind of the artist, their thought process, even better if you could find their interviews or commentaries in the internet.
To study doesn't simply mean to know. Think of it like how you build a friendship, you started not knowing anything but as time goes you get to know and understand little by little, of course including errors in the process as well.

You could say studying art also means to deepen your love for it, as you understand more about all its technicalities and why it's such an important part of human history.
>>
>>5685041
if you are giga beg. then study all the fundies you need for the lvl of art you want to achieve.
See where you are afraid to draw and search a cure for it just as an ill patient seeks for medicine at doctors to strengthen your weak points and draw with confidence

whats the best time to post art on social media

Yesterday was the best time, the second best time is today.
>>
>>5684643
There's no such thing as "best time" in terms of there being some magical catch all hour in which if you post your work then and only then, all your wildest artist dreams will come true

The best time to post art on social media is four times a day at morning, noon, afternoon, and evening reposting your existing artworks as there will always be somebody new to your art whom happens to see it while scrolling through social media

Also, plan one day out of the week (preferably first thing in the morning) in which you upload a new art piece and be sure to pin it on your profile for a week afterwards if using Twitter

Consistency is going to be the best time to post your art if you want to get anywhere in the long term on social media anon

I hadn't thought about this before, but I wonder if the reason he isn't well-remembered is because his work is largely in private non-touring collections. Museums and academics are disincentivized from promoting him. Bougereau is somewhat in the same position.
