I haven't even started anatomy yet and just draw gesture all the time

People tell me to try loomis but I'm lost. this looks appealing enought though

I can copy pretty well, but I can't draw anything good. I wish I could travel to the future, copy whatever popular art I see, and go back to the past to draw it before they do.

I don't have interests or a story to tell. I admit it. I don't give a shit about anything or myself.
>>
>>7167974
just copy the art of your favorite videogame, or show. you sound boring, so fix it by getting inspired a bit.

Appeal matters more than skill. especially if your audience is consisted of ironic tranny weebs.

>draws gesture without knowing anatomy
why do so many people do this?
let me guess
your gestures all look like stick figures or distorted michelin man clones?

stop ignoring foundations, learn the basic structure of things first

what ive learned is, everyone needs to be linked to one of those "Learn how to learn" courses, because the problem is people dont know how to actually learn things in general
>>
>>7168000
seems like every beginner course or teacher recommends gesture drawing despite them not even agreeing on what gesture even is

Gesture is literally just stick figures. Your goal is to get used to how the spine & ligaments move. You're not supposed to be 1:1 copying figures. Copy studies come later, important fundamentals are perspective and proportion of the human body & VERY BASIC anatomy (anatomy also comes later)
>>
>>7168011
>Gesture is literally just stick figures
only according to some teachers, some say it's the general gist of the pose and the limbs don't matter
>>
>>7167713
I don't get it, I have a feeling the retards that say shit like "to get a following you need to be skilled", when that's a fucking lie. Consistent posting and mostly luck is how you grow. Makes me think the retards that say this are coping /beg/ shitters that think they'll finally grow by being decent.
>>
>>7168013
Whatever helps you learn, if something isn't working for you then try a different approach. Everyone has different brains.

How does it feel knowing the OC creator will always be more popular and acknowledged than you?
>>
>>7170221
you could be like pantsu ripper and draw that guy's character and get thousands of followers.
>>
>>7170224
Ripper had thousands of followers before drawing them though
>>
>>7170221
That depends, how many thousands of followers does the OC have? I'm not too shabby myself

but at the same time numbers don't matter unless it's your profession or you enjoy competing. Drawing is fun for me so I really don't mind
>>
>>7170221
yeah but will you ever have good art or be popular
>>
>>7170221
"waaaahhh it's about the numbers wahhhhh"

Just like me in skewl!! fr fr"

I dunno man, the appeal might unironically be the consumer's mental illness or autism if...
>>7170221
...who actually knows what discord dicks he sucked to get boosted like. Not to mention the obvious bot problem inflating already big accounts.
It don't feel like anything. Who would unironically be jealous or envious because of big numbers? Are you 12?

Post your works

> Who would unironically be jealous or envious because of big numbers?
Anyone that use bots as any excuse on why they have no followers or for any reason at all
>>
>>7170617
>bots don't exist and if you say so you're jealous
But that is just a fact?
Although what do the voices inside your head tell you about my emotional state?
Please, do tell.
>>
>>7170620
>you can only get a following through bots and there’s no other way!!!
Being so quick to point out bots when the slightest mention of followers/popularity doesn’t help your case. You just want to feel validated for your confirmation biases.
>>
>>7170644
Bots do make up the majority of any following and the bigger the traffic, the higher the chance it attracts more bots, which in turn grow the numbers and it attracts more bots.
>you want validation
For simply saying it how it is?
Are you ok, Anon?
The number of social media followers isn't an indicator of a person's value and if you attach any form of ego or value to it, you have serious problems.
>>
>>7170650
>i-i’m just simply saying on how it is bro..
Sure you are, like you didn’t have any other motive when you were shitting on the consumer’s taste. Say how you really feel, don’t need to hide it, anon.
>>
>>7170656
It isn't an unreasonable thing to say that a majority of people have incredibly shit taste, when things like gangstamumble rap, influencers, celebrities, streamers, drama, gossip, etcetera are very successful and much consumed industries, nor do those same people think and ponder over the things they consume besides if it makes them feel a dopamine rush or not.

All your attempts at this armchair psychoanalysis only shows you to be emotionally invested in this.

You wouldn't just go on the internet to pose a question only to then try to insult and offend people who replied to you, thinking you're being witty and totally epic trolling everyone, do you?
Like i dunno man, that's kind of fucking pathetic even if you're an Anon.
>>
>>7168893
Cute!
>>
>>7169377
Also cute!
>>
>>7170693
Ironic, considering your first post already assuming the mental state of the consumers and have all of these theories about followers or popularity are only bots or some discord nepotism bull shit.You speak like the things you say are the absolute truth, when it’s mainly delusions. Social media is all about numbers, so why are you so serious about something like this and making up all these theories about people with different taste than you or how people grow their following? Is your mental state ok, anon?

unironically needs to cope that 80% of his followers are bots

>construction is a virus
Close, but no. What you're describing goes further than just construction.
Problem is that in our pursuit to make things look as functionally accurate as fundamentals dictate, we forget to make them visually pleasing, effectively neglecting the design aspect of art for the sake of following the fundamentals. You end up with a piece that looks correct, but doesnt look nice.

That said, you should definitely not ignore the fundamentals, but you have to always keep in mind that you're supposed to make something that is meant to be visually pleasing (assuming that's the end goal).
Think of it as the "security vs freedom" analogy, Fundies being the security and Appeal being the Freedom.

>>7171185
Loomis talks about it in his figure book.
He says that trying to capture reality is a foolish errand since photography is a thing, and that now the artists job is to invoke flavours of reality that can't be found anywhere else
>>
>>7167713
I unironically love this MS paint renaissance we're in.
