>>3559559>So? Do you only do things if you think they've literally never been done before by anyone in history?
I try to. You obviously don't even try.
You're a filmmaker? haha, please don't tell me you're as much a filmmaker as you are a painter, god forbid. And you want to keep this going for 10+ years. Oh boy.>shadows grey. I'm made a lot of paintings all with different techniques.
The trouble being that you rely too much on tracing and lazily copying a photo from the web instead of actually trying to paint. You don't know any basics when it comes to painting bodies or portraits and it shows.>idk what you mean by this. The underdrawing?
literally look at any of your paintings, especially as thumbnails. you are mainly tracing outlines, folds, exaggerated furrows, all too thick in lines. >I'm ripping off van gogh
no you're not. careful, you're asking for a lightning to strike you for claiming that.
Are you saying, you actually mix gesso into your colors?? haha. ever read any book on painting at all?>and parts of the faces are oddly shifted>example?
not surprised that you can't even tell for yourself. you lack the basics. it's subtle shifts, like the mouth is too broad, the hairline is too dark and too far on either side, the jaw is too broad. you can't tell as you are blinded by the process of copying from the photo. you care too little about the finished artwork. your main goal is a high output and a very low self-critique or reflection.>again it depends on which one you're talking about. I do grid technique now. The first act was most graphite transfer but it's about half and half now.
tracing is tracing, no matter which way you do it. the problem is you don't understand the form of what you are tracing. any old lady with too much time on her hand can trace a photo in her sunday painters club. again, the resulting quality of the painting seems to be of no value to you.
