Artwod, Dynamic Sketching or Spacial Awareness Training whatever you want to call it, it's basically perspective but teached and applied in a way where you are forced to really learn the useful stuff. A lot of people learn about drawing a cube in 1, 2 or 3 point perspective with a ton of guidelines and think that that is enough for everything else even though there is so much more to it like twisting, rotating, tilting and combining everything together for stuff like figures or creatures is super important because only after learning these things you really "get" how useful it is. After understanding that it is so much easier to learn other fundamentals like Anatomy and Values it almost feels like a shortcut, if you want to get good fast than thats what you need to learn.
Hey i wanted to ask how I could build my visual library ? I noticed that im sort of able to use simple shapes to construct complex forms but I really struggle with doing any actual design and I also struggle with creating interesting shapes.
Hi, i am currently recreating Art School at home inspired by the Draftsmen podcast and bought a couple of books to get started. Now I just wanted to ask what the most effective way to study from books is ? I am curently reading the book Drawing the head & hands by Andrew Loomis but i feel like im not studying it properly by just copying the drawings and reading the text.
Hey, how do you effectively study from books ? Like do i just read the text and copy the drawings or should I try to draw the things in a different angle or apply the things that i learned on a different subject ?
