I'd like to start doing value studies. Can I start digitally or would it be better to begin traditionally? If so, what are some tools I need?

As I am, knowing less than next to nothing about value studies (specifically of people), this is all I can do.

In regards to digital, what is a good program to use? Because SAI is... bad, so far. I am bad at this, but I'd like to improve. Do I need to study light and shadow, still lives, portraiture, or anything like that?

Charcoal.

Copy the bottom of https://courses.byui.edu/art110_new/art110/week06/images/values.jpg 5-10x a day until you can confidently/easily reproduce it from memory. Then move to http://www.artistsnetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/5-landscape-value-scale.jpg 5-10x a day. Seriously, copy it 5-10x EVERY DAY and get it exact.

So now you can reproduce values, now you need to observe them. Copy Bargue plates. Block in value shapes (5 levels) one at a time working your way from dark to light. Get them...

drawing from imagination is an overrated skill on /ic/. "Visual libraries" don't make you a better artist. That's just fancy words for symbol drawing.

More useful skills would be being able to copy a photograph, being able to draw from life realistically, and being able to write cohesive concepts for your personal work.

So other than not mentioning practicing writing I would say you are on the right track. But practice writing.

With the appearance of Bob Ross' The Joy of Painting series on twitch reaching +200k views peak it might have inspider many people who have not had any experience with are or abbandoned it at some point in their lives.

I myself used to sketch alot of portraits but for some reason I haven't touched the pencil in over 5 years.

Last week, during the marathon I fell sick and I happend to rewatch almost all of the show. The overall positivity and ease in which he hosted these shows striked me greatly and I've finally decided to renew my love in art once...

I think I have too many small influences. I see art I really like all the time and I don't know which direction I want to go. It's only really happened a couple times, but each time I settle on some artist I want to be more like, soon after I start wondering "But do I really wanna be like this guy? This guy over here has really cool stuff too..." I've never been able to make an influence map because of it, and have no sense of style or direction in my own work, I hate it.

I feel extremely sad that classical art will never flourish again.

We will never see classical painters become gods and public icons like they used to.
The 20th century destroyed art, in my opinion.

Here's one of my favorite artists: Gallen-Kallela. I wish you could still become famous by painting like this.

Well we can't predict the future. There may very well be a resurgence in public interest. Perhaps when people grow tired of photography and everything digital they will yearn again for things made by hand with expression in it.

And I think it's silly to chase fame. Chase beauty and authenticity in your art.

It's still possible to be successful doing oils. Terpning, Nerdrum, Situ and other contemporary realists sell their paintings for millions and get showered in awards.

Anyways,...

I don't believe that classical art is dead. Most art schools still use classical techniques in their curriculum. Perhaps we'll get our own renaissance to battle post-modern fluffery.

Here's a question: why has surrealism taken such a hold of contemporary artists? Is it purely for aesthetics or something deeper?

>>2288973
>I don't believe that classical art is dead
It is essentially dead. Or more like it suffered a stroke and now can't talk properly. If you compare modern classical art programs they are not particularly close to ones of the past, and the general skill level is much much much lower.
