So cubebrush made a video about how to improve your art: [link]
and if anyone's interested i'm REALLY excited about my plan that i took from that video!!
when I get a tablet (because practicing for me is 100x easier on tablets) i'm going to draw a figure standing, staring straight at the camera. I'm going to look at the figure and pick out the things that i want to improve on, and make a list. so it will probably look something like this.
etc. SO THEN i'm going to go down the list, like in this example i'd start with arms, and just practice and study the hell out of it. i'm going to be drawing so many arms you'd think i was some kind of crazy fetishist who can't get enough of those meaty slabs on either side of your torso. and by the end, i'll be 100 percent comfortable with arms.
and then i'll move on to the next thing, and the next, until i can draw a figure standing staring straight at the camera that I am 100 percent satisfied with.
and then i'll work on poses, and then i'll work on shading, and then clothes, and then perspective, and then backgrounds, and with each thing i'll pick out each individual detail that i want to improve on, and i will improve on it until i'm comfortable with it.
so i'm hoping that by the end of the year i'll be able to make interesting paintings with backgrounds that I am proud of. and i'm never gonna stop writing these lists.
so let's see what 2015 has to bring!!!
