I've decided that i want to get serious about drawing. Ive always wanted to learn how to become an artist but became discouraged because i really didn't know where to start. Are there basics that help put everything together piece by piece like when learning an instrument. Or should I just try drawing what i see over and over again.
I kind of understand what you mean by that but when you start to walk you usually start by holding on to something. I want to become well rounded in drawing so I don't only want to learn how to draw people but i want like a base idea of where to start my " journey".
Well the most basic of the basics is learning perspective. Start a sketchbook and do a shit ton of perspective exercises, with focus on the simple shapes like cube, cylinder, etc,. After that maybe move to anatomy.
Well, you COULD start with the Artist's Reading List thread stickied at the top of this forum.
You've got the next 50 years (give or take) to get well-rounded in drawing. I'm pretty sure you can spare a year or two for making mistakes and still get to where you want to go with time to spare. And if you can't then too bad because that's most of what you'll be doing for the first few years.Originally Posted by daomanI want to become well rounded in drawing
I'll second that. But strangely enough, I've had more fun making art mistakes than any other mistakes. If that makes any sense, had some trouble with the wording.
Yeah, art mistakes are the most harmless mistakes anyone is likely to make. And some of them turn out to not be mistakes at all, and that's always a nice discovery.
