    Except there are tons of cultures which ignore shadows in their visual creations, and there are plenty of ways in which they pick, break down and simplify the forms. If there is a common layer under...

    Post a lot of art, comment on others art, and such a group will grow organically. You can't expect close friends to come pre-made via a wanted ad, you have to cultivate them. :)

    Pretty much. Loomis' construction lines are just a handy way to lay down the structure in perspective. It's by far not the only possible way, either. But you have to understand perspective and...

    If you just want to try them without spending too much, buy a few Copics in grayscale, e.g. W1, W3, W5, W7, W9 or C of the same numbers. Black can be a marker or Indian ink, white is regular gouache....

    In addition to what nouge said, you are compartmentalizing colors, using the same hue at varied brightness to shade. That's not a good idea, because in reality colors influence each other and are...

    Do you know of any studies aimed at finding the absolute basics shared by all cultures? As I said, even the supposedly universal language of abstract form and composition is in a big part culturally...

    I am not sure about the veracity of that story, although the "hyper-realists" routinely copy photos - there is practically no other way to achieve the effect. But a good hyper-realist will also bring...

    Actually, it's for a big part learning how things like light and perspective work. Building a visual vocabulary is important, and drawing from life trains your working knowledge, but you need the...

    I told you essentially the same things weeks ago. Doesn't look like you have done much with that.

    That is a good point, Kev. But only one of these three languages could be argued to be reasonably context-free: the pure form. I.e. a triangle with a side down could be expected to seem more stable...

    Exactly. Even realistic art is filtered through the artist's perception and abstraction. If an artist is not interpreting, the painting becomes a pointless copied photograph.

    There is a continuous spectrum between realism and abstraction. Where you place a style on this spectrum is quite arbitrary. There are no clear lines.

    Don't worry and paint the way you like.

    That is what I call 'talent'.[/QUOTE]
