    How to get most out of vilppu lectures + Book

    Hi,

    A friend of mine generously gave me a set of vilppu lectures.

    Its a set of Anatomy and Figure drawing videos. Currently I am watching the anatomy lectures which are quite helpful.

    How do you old artists advise as what should be my approach to the lectures ?

    I'm gonna just throw this wild idea out, but if you got books, you read them and do the exercises. If you have videos you watch them and also do what he suggests.

    The other idea is to just place them in a corner every night and just place your hand on them hoping to absorb the knowledge.

    hahahaha

    no Actually my question is whats better approach, Following what he does or watching the lecture and trying to draw from memory?

    We can't say it as a book but more of a guideline, As there are no set formula in art so that's why I am asking as in what way I will learn the most?

    Make a bubble-gum sculpture of vilppu, put some candles around it, and pray to it every night before going to bed... that or you can actually open the book and get to work.

    Guess I should get back to work instead of messing around on internet. Thanks.

    On a side note I always try to stay away from this forum because of @TinyBird and @Arshes Nai specifically as they always humiliate me whenever they have a chance. I know I sometimes ask stupid questions but instead of guiding me to right direction I am always humiliated. Now I feel so ashamed of posting here.

    My point is having (some) authority on a subject doesn't grant you permission to humiliate who wish to learn.

    I'm stating the obvious, and added humor to it. If you feel humiliated it's more of a personal issue. I don't go out and try to "get users" - I don't even know you.

    However, Books and videos are pretty obvious for what they do. If you don't understand what's being said - well then ask the question about the wording or concept being talked about in the book. But this hand wringing like there's a best method? What, you're trying to get this in one shot? Good luck with that - you're going to make a mistake when learning sooner or later because it's part of the process. Try the obvious solutions first, then if they don't seem to work come back and ask questions about more specifics.

    I'm sorry if this humiliates you. But try and do, before worrying so much about the approach. It's like I get this visual someone is physically shaking with terror when they make the first stroke on a canvas/paper. Really, is it going to hurt so much if you fail quite a bit? Quite honestly ALL of us had to put up with it as artists.

    Trust me, I won't come to humiliate you to your Sketchbook. Maybe you should update it

    And I agree with Arshes, especially since most of your threads you create seem to spin around of "tell me how to do X" when the thing you need to do is practice. Any theory we can give only goes so far.

    Haha Arshes Nai I must remember that one. Nai is a very rude word in afrikaans. Seriously though, you let this: How to get most out of vilppu lectures + Book humiliate and shame you? Wow!

    TinyBird and Arshes Nei may seem like a couple of ball busters, but that's only because they are. But you can count yourself lucky that they offer their no frills and no BS advice on these forums.
