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.

Complain some more. I'm not happy that lazy edgelord artists have tons of twitter followers either but how is this helping? Validation?

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.

phew, no one tell this guy about digital painting.
I feel ya though, I find perfectly symmetrical "sacred geometry" art to be pretty boring in general

The thing is that artists often try to copy their inspirations, instead of forming something new themselves

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.
