That's debatable on a pedagogical level because we haven't demonstrated that studies and sketches use the same knowledge or even have the same processes. I've already said they don't - what similarities these have to real artwork or anything derived from observation is purely habitual and neither intended nor unintended.
I'm alright with you doing whatever you want, I just want to help. So if you'll allow me a final word on the matter it is this: you like to talk about this much more than you probably should. Regardless of whether you'd take my advice or not, you shouldn't feel compelled to create rationalizations to preset to us about it. Internalise that whole process, it is not useful to anyone else reading. Studies and sketches use the same knowledge and have the same processes because you are the same thing and whenever you draw you draw from the same impulses. What changes is the amount of backtracking and correction you're willing to put into a piece of art, and whereas you felt like doing it on this piece or not is irrelevant. I only wanted to let you know your impulsive way of drawing noses (and faces, to a degree) is still broken
. You can do whatever you want with that crit and you don't have to rationalize why you made a mistake now.
but you're also missing an important point - it's not a problem that I've been experiencing in my real work. if it shows up there, obviously I'll work to correct it. And I won't take that work to the internet of all places (and almost never have), I'll take it to people that can see it and touch it.
Having posted exclusively on this forum a lot of art that I hold quite dear for comments and scrutiny, I resent the tone of that comment. This isn't the internet
, this is Pixelation. It should not be lumped in with Deviantarts and the like. At least what I gather from your tone is that I should not give you any more critique about the things you post in this thread.
If anyone were to demand that this be a place of critique only, I would not only be sad, but I would not put up my doodles, either. Is that how it should be?
No this thread is 'post what you want'. Your attitude just tells other people if they should give you critique or not.
In the end, as harsh as this may sound, it's impossible for me to consider this forum (or any internet forum, but particularly one centered on outdated digital techniques a place for "real art," and I haven't ever wanted it to be.
Take that flawed attitude back to uni where it'll be appreciated much more. Here is for people that want to learn and want to help others learn in a grassroots way, bad crits and all. It's not an ivory tower full of highly classically-trained people that are only apparently worthy of your 'real' artwork. I personally owe 70% of my artistic growth, though it might not be dazzling to you or anyone else, to this place and am offended by that comment. If nothing else here taught me to behave decently when I get critiqued, taught me to say 'thanks' even if I was aware of the error that got critiqued, taught me to respect the time other people put into helping me with my artwork. You're not there yet apparently, so go back to art school where you're paying for people to take your art seriously. Apparently good will on the internet
is just cheap, you see it every day.
Am I being a jerk here? Yes. Am I being honest? Completely. What does that mean? Hell if I know.
It means you should think more before you post.
