Hello absolute beginner who read the sticky here
I have around 3-4 hours a day that I can devote to studying and I was wondering if you guys could help me focus on a schedule that could make the most of my meager time for now. I guess in the meantime I will work on Peter Han shapes

Did you go through Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain/Keys to Drawing?

Just go through either one of the books for now. I recommend Keys to Drawing.

I like how you put a nut sack in the middle of his face.

But anyways, what you are doing is called symbol drawing, i.e., drawing what you think something looks like instead of drawing something that you see. For example, you are representing eyes as circles and dots inside an oval.

>>2535485
Oh thanks, I never taught about the nut sack to be honest, lol. Is there anyway to make it a little bit better or is it fine?
>>
>>2535488
The only way to make this better is to read the sticky, practice for a year, and then redraw this. You will be amazed at the strides you can make in one year of hard study and hard work.

The sticky mentions starting with Drawing with Right Side of Brain or Keys to Drawing. I recommend Keys to Drawing.

No. Anyone who thinks tracing actually helps at getting better is delusional.

What is the difference of blending and rendering?

Blending is about colors smoothing into one another, rendering is about defining form.

Artist that strive for a airbrushed, Sakimichan look put a lot of emphasis on blending brush strokes to make everything look nice and smooth.

Francis Bacon

Filigree, acanthus, floral, etc. design and drawing thread? Basically the little floral designs you see in older banknotes and legal documents, old borders, books, etc.

This is a hard subject to find material for, as it's quite old. There is one called "How to Draw an Acanthus" (can't remember the author) that is okay, but is from pre-turn of the century and somewhat cryptic. So if we could post designs we like, or even our own tips, that'd be great. I'll post some of my own designs and favorites.

Hit the keyboard and see what you get. You can always change some parts to have it make sense.
>>
>>2529537
Try and make it memorable. Like, I picked mine by figuring, well, I love space, and it sounds like the name of a NASA probe or something, (hence the "one") and there's a certain irony that comes with the story of Icarus. If all else fails, just use a nickname or make an anagram.
>>
I have no advice since I picked mine when I was about 14 and its always been the same. But really, Google the name to see if its already something popular. Nothing worse than signing up on one website with a name and then trying to make accounts elsewhere, only they're all taken by one little twerp who abandoned them years ago.

According to /p/

no
>>
>>2533375
No, art is the reality around us perceived by the human mind expressed in a variety of ways like drawings and sculptures.

A camera merely creates a near perfect depiction of the world and there is no human element to how it will look. (Unless of course photoshop is used in which case that may be art)
>>
>>2533375
It can be. It's just a tool like anything else. In some people's hands pencil and paper can create art, in another person's hands it just leads to stick figures.
