The nose is off which means that her lips are also off. otherwise its pretty alright. but also been done hundreds of thousands of times. get your friend to do some other bible figure which hasnt been done as much that references a passage of the bible which you wish everyone knew but likely dont.

Sorry its still bugging me. if you flip the picture around you can see it more clearly. this is why traditional painters would inspect their work through mirror because it provides a new perspective that they havent become accustomed to over the hours they have worked on it.

Honestly I think if you fixed the nose you would barely even notice the lips being slightly off. The lips are certainly more centered than the nose, but beyond that the picture looks fine

Am I the only one that thinks using stencils, patterns, or straight edges to draw with is less genuine?

To me it makes the art far less meaningful when a person can't be arsed to learn to draw a straight line or a circle. And even if it took them years to master a straight line, the imperfections of a person's ability is what defines the character of their style.

So many hacks these days taking short cuts for a quick buck. It seems like art is becoming less and less about expressing yourself and more about pandering a product to the masses. Pathetic.

I agree with you on the whole its about creating a product type deal insta-artists etc but when it comes to using a ruler to get straight lines or a protractor for circles etc i disagree with you.

Sometimes you gotta use a ruler or protractor, i mean kandinsky used a protractor and ruler and pretty much every one does, you need tools to assist you in expressing yourself and so a ruler isnt any different than a paint brush.

Ive been caught out before which ended up with the work becoming something i didnt want it to become and made it look amateurish (pic related) and so something which i sunk a lot of time and energy into basically became an "untitled" which i havent even bothered hanging on the wall yet.

I don't know anything about art. I've never even posted here before OP. Why are you asking me? Idk it sounds a lot like using auto-tune in music, in that, in the quest for perfection a lot of character is lost.

I can't draw for shit and I would really like to learn to do I can produce my weird visions and psychedelic thoughts.

I downloaded drawing with the right side of the brain.I got up to the part where you draw the picture upside down then my computer died.

Now I only have my phone so I want to actually go out and buy some books.

Any way on top of that even that book seemed a little advanced for me.I found drawbox but id still rather have a physical book.

Pic related it's my drawing from that book.(looks barely anything like me)

I would suggest just drawing whenever and whatever you can. People assume it's a skill you're born with. Maybe that's true I dunno but for most people it seems to just be a matter of practice, practice, practice. Actual classes and personal input will be much better than a book but if that's not possible just draw. Keep on drawing and don't let that shitty voice in your head say it's no good.

also, check out your local thrift shop for design books. I much prefer looking at line drawings for inspiration over technical 'how to draw' books or full-color paintings/photos. I have a few of these Dover publishing books, and they're all really great to get for ideas. at least for my style of drawing.

So, I want to get a Tattoo for years now, and I finally got a motive.

Everything you perciee changes the way you percieve things, and by percieving things you change the way the things are.

This is consistent with my worldview, schientific and philosophic.

Can anyone draw a better Version of that Tattoo? Or is it fucking stupid and I will hate it in a few years?

OP you should find a good tattoo artist and have them do this for you, not us. Go to a tattoo artist ask the what they want and they will draw up a sketch for you, if you like it, great, if you dont, great they can try again or you can find someone else.

You want to find a tattoo artist that refuses to do other peoples artwork and only does their stuff, the difference being they will care most about the end result because it is a reflection of their work as a whole.

that could be made into a cool tattoo. here's a big tip though - just because it's a good painting/drawing does not mean it will automatically make a good tattoo!
most people think you can take any image into a tattoo shop and they will magically be able to make it work, failing to take into account the differences between the human skin as a medium as compared to paper/digital.
many tattoos will look cool at first but if not put on by a capable tattooer, it WILL look like shit in a few short years.
do yourself a favor, do some research, find the most legit tattoo shop you can, and speak to the artist there. most respectable tattooers will give you advice about what will make a solid tattoo that lasts and still looks good in 10 years, as long as you are open to learning and don't try to tell them how to do their job.
many tattooers are stoked to do custom pieces for people, but make sure you let them do their thing - if the artist isn't stoked about the artwork they're putting on you, you will both most likely be unsatisfied with the end result.

ive seen this countless times in tattoo shops - people come in with a very particular idea, shove their phone in the artist's face and ask them to "do this please". when the artist explains to them why the design would need to be changed a bit to make a solid tattoo, most people don't seem to listen and just say "yeah but i want it THIS way"
sorry for the rambling post, but seriously there are so many tattoo shops who don't give a fuck and will happily give you a shitty tattoo for your money, but if you take the time to talk this over with an artist who cares, you will walk away with a rad piece based on your vision.

I've had two ideas. One is just getting some neat looking plant tattooed on a leg. My other idea is to just have one of my arms totally covered in fairly random stuff. I'd mostly just tell a tattoo artists, put whatever you want on here and see where it went.
