Why is my art so bad?
Just thoroughly fist me up the ass
theres no shading!
no but really, make it so you can complete a work quickly without being attached before asking to be fisted.
as picasso said "make a masterpiece every day. at the end of the day, call what you have created a masterpiece."
y'know that's a good bit of advice... Maybe if I actually fucking completed something I wouldn't be such a self loathing faggot, artistically.
I'm really frustrated with my art. I haven't had a critique in a long ass time and maybe it'll help me sort shit out.
Pic related, more of my shit.
better than the majority of non-pro artists. with that out of the way, most glaring is that it looks flat and the pose is boring. work on spatial awareness, which also includes shading.
This shows a lot more skill than the first pic you posted. Just work on heads and expressions, you're already really good but it doesn't show that well in your heads and heads and faces are prime real estate in art.
You need to do still lifes.
They're absolutely vital to making good art from the imagination.
Do one every day for an hour and you'll improve greatly.
It's at the bottom of the sticky so you probably missed it
You need to spend more time on your sketches. These are simply un-finished drawings.
Spend more than an hour. Plan something out and see it through until completion. Spend at least 6 hours on a single sketch.
You'll learn more from doing one thing through to completion than stagnating at a bunch of half-assed sketches.
