Ok, let me see if I can TLDR the sticky to something more competent:
Firstly, Draw what you see, not what you think you see. Draw the actual shapes, not what your brain says the shapes look like.
Think of said shapes you just drew as 3D objects, shade accordingly.
Study forms such as still life, figure drawings, follow steps 1 and 2, rinse, repeat.
Am I right so far? Or am I going to get like, "drawing shapes is symbol drawing" or some shit.
the sticky is fine, but it could be better. We've got so many minds and yet the sticky is boring to read, low on information, somewhat redundant and promotes things that arent really that good.
It's not as if the sticky is bad. But it could be better.
The memes are alive and they are taking over. Meme magic is real.
But right now there is nothing to replace the sticky with and most people think it could use an upgrade. So I suggest everyone post suggestions on what to change here(or should I start a new thread?) or even better write some content that should be in it and what it should replace and post it here, someone can compile it later into something concise afterwards and we can strawpoll, I'll compile it myself if nobody else will.
I think a good start would be to compile a simple table of content for the sticky and then people can post content according to it. I'll set up a makeshift wiki to put shit there. When we have some actual replacement we can start shouting at mods to replace the sticky, otherwise this "sticky is shit" is just going to stay a meme that we can circlejerk over forever.
