Is art in the West dying? by John Dacklekud - Fri, 19 Jun 2015 20:13:15 EST ID:1X7mXWoK No.49365 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Art is BAD in the West.

It was only last century after the second World War that NY, NY was crowned the cultural center of the world having replaced Paris, France.

Now our escapist art is two hours of pretty CGI you can practically talk over.

It's not that we don't have great art and great artists; We may even still have the greatest.

But our people are fat, retarded, facebook addicts who are dumber than their phones.

Who is going to save art? Which direction will art inevitably take next? When will we see the next cultural explosion? Might it have something to do with the internet? Is art is purely memetic now? Should we be looking at neural programming as a medium?

discuss.

Do you really think mainstream entertainment after World War II was all artsy stuff yo find in museums today? Most people back then didn't give a shit about fine art, just like now.

just because the average is two seconds doesnt mean that people look at paintings for two seconds. what more likely is that they skip or only glace at many paintings they find uninteresting and spend longer time looking at a few. but yea, many people go to muesums just because its a thing to do.
care to tell what you are writing about? i often find that what i like about an artwork isnt something i would put down in words, someone said thats like dancing about architecture.

I work at a one of the few remaining free art museums in the US and you can always tell which patrons are actually interested in art and which aren't. I'd say it's one in five. Most patrons are families with children, groups of old people (who are usually the most likely to touch art), and young people looking for a cheap date.

Of course I doubt it's much different than past generations.

Body Construction - Where to Start? by Sophie Turveyfoot - Tue, 12 Apr 2016 14:52:50 EST ID:lqrJ6tUX No.50547 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Hey guys,

So after a ~15 years hiatus I'd like to start drawing again.

Among other things I'd like to be able to draw the human body without it looking weird, basically. I have Google'd and YouTube'd it of course, but I still don't know which technique(s) would prove to be the most useful.

Some look too incomplete for me. E.g. I don't know how to properly draw muscles around a twig of an arm since I suck at muscle anatomy too, so I don't see that much of a point there.

Others seem to want you to learn every bone and muscle present in the human body which seems like overkill, especially at this point for me.

Some shortcuts to that, like the use of more complete shapes that do have some density (instead of basically straight lines and circles) would be of much help, I think.

What resources would you guys recommend?

Thank you in advance!

only way to get truly good at drawing people is through rigorous study, whatever method you end up choosing. Drawing from life is IMO the best option, since you're actually studying, a real live human body. There are often free or cheap figure drawing sessions at art centers or schools in most major cities, look it up in your area.

Studying anatomy may seem like it's unecessary, but its the only way to really understand what you're drawing and what's going on. If you don't know what muscles are under tension in a particular pose, how are you supposed to portray them accurately in the context of your image?

Basic constructions are a good way to start, especially if you're not comfortable with a pencil yet. If you have solid drawing fundamentals, then I'd highly recommend drawing from actual people, even if you just draw a friend sitiing there. Drawing from life has no equal if you want to learn to draw realistically.

So I'm a recovering opiate addict (heroin and suboxone mostly in different cycles) and was wondering if you guys could post some art about opiate addiction. I draw alot myself and while I have made some art about it, this is not one of my drawings. I would like to see your guy's representation for some inspiration.
tl;dr: post art about opiates or opiate addiction.

what do you do when nothing comes? lately i have been sitting down to my desk every day only to find myself drawing blanks. since i was a kid it always just came automatically.
i experience these great dreams and beautiful thoughts, but i feel like they are not *mine* and when I sit down to draw, it's like i am being cut off. what is holding me back, what do you do when you have creative blockage?

/qq stuff warning, Everyone got that problem from time to time. For me it got out of control in past few months. Normaly I would take it as a short mind weakness but lately It's just miserable. I used to be happy when I drew, but almost all of if is gone. The feeling of frustraion is dominating my whole effort to create something. The door once open, are now closed. The fun, zoning out and acomplishment are no longer there, creation just feels unwanted and empty. I feel like I lost that spark which dwells in subconsciousness.

try drawing a line or shape that youve never drawn before (feels new to you) and extrapolate. this is a lot of fun for developing abstraction. studies are always good practice too- maybe emphasize some element of what youre drawing like lighting, composition, color, texture, etc

I just ordered a shit load of old National Geographic magazines on ebay for $1.95, there should be some good material there. Any other suggestions for magazines that feature a lot of full page photography/artwork?

pic related, it's a collage I did a while ago, made from images from some church pamphlet. Looks good, but is very small. I'm wanting to do some larger collages.

'good enough'? I think if you make art that expresses your feelings/perspective honestly she will see that and either like it or not, if she does then she may become attracted to you since she now has slightly more insight into you as a person and likes what she saw.
