it's really not the precursor to pixel art, he doesn't even use a regular grid most of the time. it's just geometric. and pixel art has nothing to do with "getting" mondrian

pic related is a direct analog to pixel art that predates both the computer and mondrian (c.1785)

That's a large scale production though. A couple of pictures commissioned for personal use isn't the same as making a product to be packaged and resold over and over. Technically they could sue if they saw the image and found out it was paid for, but I really doubt most recognizeable celebrities would care enough to file suit for the price of a single commission even if it was a couple thousand dollars. And with it being a single commission most likely it'll never hit their radar anyway. The type of...

I'm going to take a trip soon. I'll be on the plane for 10+ hours each way. I want to get better at drawing the human form, and to have a better understanding of how to convey form better through my drawings.

How should I use my time on the plane to do this? Is there some sort of hyperbolic time chamber-like technique for me to use to do this?

I have an office printer that I can use to shoot off an art book if necessary.

I would consider myself beginner level.

I wanna start doing some oil painting and am after some advice.

Is there anything I need to know about buying a canvas? I assume the store bought ones don't require any kind of additional preparation before painting on them? I've heard some canvases can cause dried paint to crack due to movement.

And what about after a painting is finished, are you supposed to coat it with varnish, or something else to protect the paint after it dries?

Gesso is something you prime your canvas with before painting. Some canvasses are already primed.

You don't have to use it, but the surface won't be smooth and the paint might not hold so well. But I don't have too much knowledge about this.
>>
>>2777871
If this is your first time trying oil paints, then my first piece of advice is to just go out and buy a beginner set of oil paints, brushes, and canvas/canvas board. Anything else will send you down a long dark rabbit hole of technical aspects that wont matter until your style and comfort with oil paint is solid.

To answer your question, Gesso is used to create a barrier between the canvas and the paint, as well as a medium for the oil to bond to. Without gesso, the oil would slowly deteriorate the cloth behind...

Since you are just getting into oils, you really wont have to worry about half of the things I went over. The best thing you could do at this point is to find artists that you enjoy and try and emulate their style. How do they use color? How much detail is necessary? Try and find out what they did to learn to use oil. STUDY THE BRUSH STROKES. Seriously. Go to a museum and get so close to the art that security gets pissed. My recommendation, if you aren't...

Best way to find a "style" is learn how to draw a figure and recognize shapes within them a little better. Once you can eyeball something and break it down into simplified shapes you're on your way to gold. Keep a log of artist you already admire and play Frankenstein's monster, experiment alongside trying to improve your skill set.

What are your opinions on practicing on paper if you draw exclusively on digital for practicability and convenience (like being able to do so at work)?
Is it a wasted effort? Can your mind even transfer what you learned on paper to digital if you don't have something like a cintiq?

>what a dumb question the answer is obvious
No it's not. I've seen many contradictory arguments in favor of both sides from many experienced artists, as well as some middle grounds.

i used to think that it didn't matter, because improvement happens with your brain not the materials you use. until i realized that I'm quite shit at drawing traditionally, while being very good at digital painting. I had amatuer issues like I couldn't scale things the right size and end up making things too big or too small, as well as tunnel vision where i'd start off big and end up tiny and disproportionate. drawing digitally is very convenient because you can resize things, erase easier, go back, flip the image etc. there are so many shortcuts that you...

yeah it is. it's all muscle memory. if you sit there and grind perfect circles on paper it's the same motion in digital unless you're a pleb who sits there ctrl+z a million times for every stroke.

>>2776879
My biggest problem with digital is that you can't trust it. I've had it from both sides:
I look at a very good drawing in my hand, then when I digitize it, I realize it looks like utter crap or
I print a digital drawing of mine and suddenly it looks 50% better.

I don't know why this happens, or if it's just me.

>>2776882
Not the same movements. If you have a small tablet like most people, your movements are way less wide than on paper, not to mention you're looking forward to the screen while drawing on your right when digital, a completely different position from when drawing traditional.

I see where you're coming from, but that's a very weak and thoughtless argument.
