    The better you get the more effectively you observe your surroundings?

    Well ya know artists liek wes, lung bug, and eeespecially marko say that you should'nt take ur surroundings and life generally for granted? Well can u observe and get more out of ur surroundings the better u get, I mean just the little things I observe around me are porbably nothing compared to the photographic memory of wes and marko. I suppose this is because they've drawn and studied soooooooo much that its easier for them to study certain certain trends and patterns in their surroundings, right. And another thing u know u hear things repetitively liek study anatomy and draw from life as general rules. I don't think we can appreciate, respect and value these rules properly until we se in reality and practicality how they actually affect us and benefit us personally. Its liek these things that ur parents drill into u, most teenagers couldn't give a fuck at that age. Which is what ur parents were probably kiek, and then only later on after experience of age u understand and agree with those statements truly. Liek coro said ur peple on a forum anren't going to givve u what u can learn on your own, and he's probably dissapointed on me that I haven't grasped this rule yet, but thats because he's goe through the process to learn this. And I'm only now after so long beginning to understand haha , not fully ther yet though . I think its the same thing, so...DRAW A LOT , and then join the clan of people who see things the average artist don't see mang!






    Is this right, am I wrong to think liek this? wot are ur thoughts ( don't worry to give ur opinions haha!)_

    the more effectively you observe your surroundings The better you get
    The better you get the more effectively you observe your surroundings

    learning how to draw good isnt done with draw alot like so many ppl tell

    from what i experienced its about UNDERSTANDING - like playing an instrument n making music
    music and drawing following rules -> guidlines u have to obey or ur drawings and music isnt good at all
    u dont gain much understanding when u just draw
    the more you THINK about it the more u gain - think about what drawing*music is about and u can reveal all its secrets
    i doubt we can if we just draw
    even if u have pro artists it doesnt mean they are aware of understand of drawing they have or why do they just say draw alot

    im drawing right now in order to get more understanding about how to orient*allign a 3d form in 3d space - when i got that done i have more understanding about how to do that means i can easier understand how to orient any kind of 3d form in 3d space becuase rules of drawing a leg or a head are the same but the form is not still foreshorteing rules stay same - perspective rules stay same - shading rules say same
    its very much same for playing music ( i play guitar) ^^
    once u know the scale stuff and how to "use" the guitar its all on you

    there is no guarantee to become a good artist or musician but its easier once u know the "HOW TO" (rules guidlines understanding)

    hope u understand what im saying ;>

    ->
    perspective
    dynamic
    symmetrie
    foreshortening
    vanishing points

    I think people worry too much now (I count too) asking too many questions when the answers are right infront of them. If you study more of course you are going to look at surroundings more. Your not going to decrease in skill so just draw and dont worry about it. Theres no point analysing a situation too much because youll end up getting worried over nothing.

    Arrow

    what i mean is : learn to understand what drawing is about and u will be able to draw like a badass

    learn what music theory is about and u will be able to make music instantly

    example scale -> http://www.akkordeon-orchester-baltm...heorie/Dur.jpg

    i dont learn to draw a head or leg but i try to learn how to draw which includes legs and cars and ears flowers and evrything else that can be imagined <- because the rules i need to obey to DRAW (3dimensional) ARE THE SAME


    got me now ?
