>Should I continue arting

did someone give u the impression you shouldn't?

> socially enept hobo for the rest of my life?

art/job, do both?
>>
>>2348598
head is massive because you haven't accounted for the camera distortion, and the outstretched arm makes it obvious the painting is based on some lame selfie.

if it's a self-portrait, why are you using a photograph at all? set up a mirror and paint your face from life.
>>
>>2348605
It was for a class I was in, paintings from a self photo was mandatory.

Often told painting is a waste of time/money

>paintings from a self photo was mandatory
you should've kept that part to yourself. abandon thread
>>
>>2348609
Well then your teacher gets the blame for being retarded.

Even still, you could have used a much better photo. the camera needs to be much further from the face to prevent distortion. have someone else take the photo, and having some background, narrative, or hint of emotion couldn't hurt either.

Get a job, do art as a hobby. Move to art in 5 years when you get gut and don't have career.

I seriously don't understand people that want to be designers/illustrators from the get go without any other skills than loomis.

its "your" time do what you want with it.

>>2348598
Just keep arting. A lot of us produce shit initially but do we ever stop? HELL NO!
>>
>>2348598
Do it as a hobby, but definitively don't expect money out of it.
>>
OP, can I buy you dinner? (srs)

those aren't mutually exclusive.
>>
>>2348598
It's good for a first attempt.

The colours are a bit mushy, the blonde , reds and brown. a bit of contrast would have helped.

The composition is mad, why cut off the top of your head? was your mirror too small?

Please let me pleasure you, you sweet little thing.

Lauryn?

I laze around all day, it's also a waste of time and money. What I did is a real waste, while what you did was keep learning by each brush stroke. They said it's a waste because they think it can't generate money.
>>
>>2348611
its a waste if you dont learn to SEE or construct things properly. If you knew how to sketch and see the shapes of your face correctly then this would have been a close to perfect looking painting. Its great for a first attempt but has obvious shortcomings due to lack of skill.

Is this a humblebrag?
About things like angle and deformation it shouldn't matter if done consciously, in fact it could become your signature style
>>
>>2348598
Don't call it "arting". Respect art and it'll respect your efforts over time.

Keep drawing and painting. Art is a jealous god, and if you don't keep trying to satisfy this god, you will be doomed to never knowing your true self.
