I'm an artfag and I take public transport every day. I have a huge urge to take photos of people I see and use them as references. What should I do?

Open a photography studio and make people pay you to take pictures of them. Maybe thatll calm your urges. It's legal to photograph people in public though. So go right ahead if youre buff. Just play surveillance man level autism when confronted.

Learn basic composition so your pictures look like actual art instead of just creep shots. I take pictures of people all the time, and if they say anything, I show them.

Not so much imo. It's always super mid-centered. Not so interesting I think. Also your pieces are quite repetitive. I don't know what you are trying to do but personally I also really dislike seeing faces in these types of work. Adds an element of non-abstractness that ruins the whole.

I really really like this one though http://i.imgur.com/fQZxFlt.png

I need someone with a critical eye. My dad drew this and showed it to me. I think it's pretty good, but it just doesn't look finished to me for some reason. He got really disappointed. What do you guys make of it?

Do any of you have a bunch of anatomy tutorial images you can dump? All of mine (900 and counting, references included) instantly got wiped off my phone. Half of it dealt with female anatomy and hip construction.

Why are you keeping that shit on your phone? Literally the number one electronic device that gets damaged or lost in any person's personal possession. There are plenty of decent external hard drives under 50 bucks to keep your data safe. Or dozens of viable cloud data storage, many of them free up to a certain amount.

Technically it's pretty good, looks like something painted back before our time (I don't know my eras, sue me) but I feel like the piece overall is kind of weak.

You could push the surrealism a lot farther, especially with the face, right now it's not very surreal to me more like a lady with stuff on her wearing a mask. Kinda boring. Push it farther!

I say study fabric a little bit more too because some of the shading looks a little weird, like i can't place what sort of fabric it...

Thanks bunches. I agree with the fabric comment. I paint mostly from memory and with no reference images. But I can assure you I'm anything but cocky lol. I just really wanted honest feedback from strangers to help me see my work more objectively. Thanks again.

why dont you just do a set of hands 10 - 100.

break the forms down to simple shapes first,
understand that they are like spades,

also check the refrence pic thread some one posted a thousand hands,

so spent and hour or two then go back to what ever "finished works" you where focussing on OP
>>
>>2442223
how the fuck do you struggle with hands

you have two right before you just waiting.

drawing the human body requires memorization, that's just fact. but hands are always there in case you need to cheat. if you're not satisfied drawing from your own hands then you might be unsatisfied instead with how you're actually drawing.
>>
>>2442223
it seems more like you struggle to see in volumes. I know it's not fun but maybe play around with more simple shapes a bit?

I'm trying to paint yin yang koi fishes on my wall I've drawn one, now I need to draw the other, as they need to be identical, I'm looking for a way to trace the first one, flip it over & get it on the wall. Anyone has any ideas or tips on how to accomplish this?

Scan the picture, copy, mirror.
Use a projector and put both up on the wall, trace both onto wall and paint.
