    Complain. Complain. Complain.

    All of my threads here have been some complaint, or hidden complaint inside. And I was tired of it, because I considered making another complaint thread about myself not progressing, my time, when I draw, the materials I use to draw. So last night I went into the the chat and asked if there was a book thread, which they pointed to and Bridgman was almost praised in so few words and what I have seen around the site.
    This is a hobby, but I like this hobby and would like to work at it. (I know.. work + hobby?) I've mentioned drawing being a hobby here and to my memory, a lot of people turned their heads :<.

    Anyway, I'm going off-topic. I'm in the library and I just checked out "Bridgman's complete guide to drawing from life" and "Constructive Anatomy". I also wanted to get "Anatomy for the Artist" but I have a test coming up and I don't want to have to re-check out these books over and over because I haven't finished them. Now I'm curious, which book do I start out with? They are both written by Bridgman(if you didn't know), but I'm not sure if I am to use them cooperatively, or one before the other.

    I see what you mean. Now you're complaining about complaining.

    Bridgman's complete guide has parts of all his books combined. I would start with that and if you need a more detailed look at a specific section, then rent one of his other books.

    And you're still complaining. If you were committed to putting an end to the cycle you would have just asked the book question. So stop it. Just go work on your art and stop worrying about how you sound in your posts.

    I was going to complain about SUMBODY not using spellcheck, but then I thought, on second reading, that it makes perfect sense this way (spellcheck wouldn't have caught it anyway)...

    If only I could upgrade my cleaver into a bancleaver! Maybe just a few more thousand XP...

    (not saying I would use said bancleaver on you, XenoFenix, just saying it would be awesome to have one)

    So... you had a "6 post experience" here since JUNE

    Half the posts (3) you did spend on opening a thread named "How do you scan?"
    the other half on another cleaver thread "I'm tired of trying to learn to draw."

    The remaining 40% of your activities here (4 posts) you invested in "hidden complaint inside"
    People gave you useful tips and you thanked the people 10 times and now you complain about hidden complaints.
    Till now you still did not manage to scan or post any artworks.
