I was thinking about making a daily schedule for practicing the fundamentals and what not but how would I go about "checking my work"?
Also does anyone else have a schedule they follow? I'd love to see how other people go about this
here's dave rapoza's schedule from when he was gittin gud
I don't really think you need to check it to be honest. As long as you keep practicing and studying, your mistakes will even themselves out. If you really feel the need to check mistakes, you can flip the canvas to get a better perspective of any problems. Or if you're doing traditional stuff, hold it in front of a mirror.
But like I said, I feel like checking all your mistakes might be a little pointless as long as you study well.
By drawing something and flipping it if working digitally, or by looking away from it for 30 seconds if working traditionally. Also, the next day, spend a couple minutes going over yesterday's drawings to identify what your issues were. That's what I do, anyway.
I don't know how new to art you are, but you should probably be worrying more about consistently putting in a good deal of practice as opposed to checking your mistakes. You will know those well enough, and fix them over time, if you draw every day, even just for 1-2 hours.
he got in some trouble with the law and couldn't get a job because of it, I think he used to shoplift. He realized that if he didn't get his shit together he would have no prospects. he talks about it on his level up episode.
>NEETs really have no excuse not to gitgud then
but we're so busy with games and manga
I remember seeing some of his pre CA days lineart stuff and it was actually pretty good. I remember on livestreams Dave and Dan use to draw in school and obviously he had a plan because he used his HS scholarship money for a tablet. People tend to over exaggerate things. A good example of this is tehmehs progress picture.
Yeah, I can say the same thing for colour and value. It's something that you're going to pick up. If you have to check, you can use the eye dropper tool to compare to a reference, but you'll get bolder and more able to pick correct colors the more you paint, and in return the more confident you get.
He's really good but I feel that training and studies shouldn't be scheduled like that, instead I preffer project-oriented studies, so you have set goals and deadlines, and you can consistently check your improvement through your work. Besides that you never feel like you're going nowhere or are investing time and efforts just because
That's me though
