So I purchased everything on this list and I'm really happy, everything showed up already and it looks really Great. But does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep all this stuff organized and accessible? As it stands now I have a huge Amazon box full of art supplies, and I am worried things are gonna get lost fast.
I hoard art supplies more than use them. Hoping to turn that around with this class and a daily habit of having fun while making art. This was relaxing and enjoyable, which I need to remind myself art as a hobby is supposed to be. Looking forward to the basics course!
Hey, I bought this course awhile ago and haven't gotten the chance to getting to watching the course until today due to being a student trying to get an associates for my major in Illustration at my community college. These are my practice gesture drawings, which took around 10-15 minutes each I know gestures should be done faster with less detail but for some reason my brain and hand can't work like that atm due to my adhd so just bare with me.
Maybe it's a technical matter? Try various sensitivity pressure settings of your stylus. This can give more natural looking lines - thinner and brighter by little pressure. When the pressure sensitivity is set too high, even a light touch gives even, dark, thick lines - not varying much.
Are there any moderators here? There is more and more spam on the forum. Just look here for example: https://www.proko.com/community/categories/community-challenges I've also reported spam in the other topics in the last days, but it has not been deleted.
Dana, I just can't believe that! I have a home-schooled teenage daughter... But let’s talk about drawing. I also think many of the courses from the Proko site are rather advanced, and this can be overwhelming. We are just not the target (yet...). The Draftsmen podcast - this is completely not my world. But look at that playlist "Drawing Basics" from Proko YT: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLtG4P3lq8RHFRfdirLJKk822fwOxR6Zn6 I've always wished there were more lesson for beginners - and I think the new course will be at this level. But it’s a good idea to use other resources. I began with Drawabox and a book „The Art of Basic Drawing” by William F. Powell, Michael Butkus, Walter Foster (it was published in many languages). I can also recommend: https://www.youtube.com/user/thevirtualinstructor https://www.youtube.com/c/TheDrawingDatabaseMarcLeoneNKUsota https://www.youtube.com/user/LighterNoteProd But… don't get caught up in the trap of "watching more than practising". Just buy a fineliner and start step-by-step exercises from Drawabox. Drawing quickly becomes a habit and sooner or later you’ll see the progress.
Of course, it's beneficial! Even if you want to draw only from observation, it's much easier to do it, when you understand the relations between objects in the 3D space - you can better transform them into 2D and the drawings doesn't look flat. And the learning progress is much faster than by just "copying the lines" from observation. Believe me, this is my own experience. Take look at my album, I'm learning to draw as a veeeery adult person (just for fun). I started from null and I am delighted with the Drawabox. It really works!
