Do I need to be skilled at maths to understand perspective and vanishing points?
My head burns whenever I look at pics like the pic related, or try to read a tutorial. My brain goes blank.
Is this something you understand eventually after drawing from references without understanding the logic? Sorry for whining a lot but I'm afraid I'm stuck at drawing people from one point of view for eternity.

Maths? Really? I gave up on maths after learning fucking calculus.

(Almost) Everything you need to know is:

>Parallel lines ain't parallel.
They converge into a vanishing point.

> Horizon line is always on the eye-level.

> All vanishing points go to the horizon line (unless they don't).

Thanks, anon. I have actually ordered Perspective for Comic Book Artists already, will get the other one, too.

Pictures like those can seem intimidating, but perspective is easy to understand once you get the jargon out of the way.

All that image is really showing is that there's a bunch of cuboids (basically 3D rectangles) that are all the same, but LOOK different because of their placement in the image. If you extend the parallel lines of these shapes (which is what the image is doing with those extended lines), they'll eventually (appear to) meet. Where they appear to meet is the vanishing point.

That being said, he's simply a mediocre artist. He seems to have a good grasp of the fundamentals and when he sticks to realism hes fine but his style is just terrible

>>2603303
He knows his shit but his taste and style is shit.

He somehow made himself regress when he decided to learn his new style. Everything he draws is way too stiff and not very appealing to look at.

>>2603305
>He seems to have a good grasp of the fundamentals

This is actually why I don't like his artwork, because he does not have a good grasp of the fundamentals. His lines are "shaky", there's not enough confidence in his strokes, and even in recent drawings he will still make chicken-scratch marks for "hard" curves. It's sad. Obviously, some of his drawings are good, but most of his work is either bad or mediocre.

All in all, not worth paying...

Why is every beginner thread start with a stupid human face or body
Do any of the poster realise how overly difficult that is for a novice to draw that realistically
It should start from still life with simple shapes
So that they can slowly move into more complex
Geometric object

Anyone that is REALLY new to art in here hear my advice.
DO NOT START FROM DRAWING & SHADING FACES. If you are discouraged by lack of progress IT IS normal CAUSE YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO

If anyone on this website says you did't work hard enough they are unsympathetic...

Because its more fun than a still life.

This is pretty true ime, senpai. I fell for the Loomis meme and got real deep into Drawing the Heads and Hands well before I was ready, ended up giving up on it because I just couldn't make it work, and just started drawing simple objects around my house like chairs and fruit and shit, and came back to Loomis a few months later and was blown away with how much better I understood it. Loomis is good but shitposting him like people do on this board...

So I bought a medium Intuos Pro with the intent to learn to draw with it - thinking, that if I learned how to draw on it, that it'd ultimately work in my favor for what I'd like to do (digital art, 3d sculpting, similar), instead of following a more traditional method.

Unfortunately, I'm a lazy asshole who procrastinates on everything, so I've had this great piece of equipment for the last year, and have pulled it out probably less than a dozen times. Over the last few months, I've been working actively to improve myself and to stop acting like a child, but I still don't have the necessary foundational skills to properly utilize this tablet, plus, my hand-eye coordination between a tablet and a monitor has not been developed enough, though I know that comes with time using it.

My choices are:
A. Put my time into something else and appreciate actual artists work.
B. Sell the tablet and go to a traditional pen-and-paper method until I'm decent enough to consider a tablet again (probably a few years of actual study, imo)
C. Stick it out with the tablet.

Thoughts?
Side note, the tablet is in damn near new condition, still have original packaging. If I sold it, I'm hoping to get $250-300 for it, since brand new is $350, and it looks like these guys retain their value. If I sell it, my next tablet would likely be one of those little Intuos Draw ones for under $100, just to keep photoshop editing skills up.

Never have found them more useful than photo reference or 3d models. If you need a better grasp on a pose you're drawing, act it out yourself and/or take photos of yourself with a webcam.

Modern as in "art of today" or modern as in modern art movement? Because some people have been using them both around me lately and it's been confusing.

As for either? Meh. Seems like shock art is too popular today (which really just makes art less seriously taken because it attracts all the talentless "edgy" kids.

I like the classical painters AND the abstract expressionists and 90% inbetween. I have seen very few conceptual artworks I thought were actually intelligent though.

I enjoy a work by Millais or Rembrandt as I would Shakespeare or Melville, and I enjoy a Pollock like I would a poem from John Ashbery. I have far more respect for the former but the latter has a time, a place, and a mood where I can enjoy it immensely.
