Trying to watch The Godfather, Pt II on Netflix and the subtitles are really throwing me off

i wanna play the new (not) legacy of kain but i got no business buying games and no business playing them cuz i got work to do

@a_rock i'm pretty sure there's been an installation artist who's done this

i don't use reference, i load my colon up with paints and projectile shit it at a canvas, i'm a real artist

tracing often becomes a crutch. and if one traces the artworks of others, it can lead to problems with plagiarism

learning to reference by eye, or using the grid method, are valuable tools as well, and ones i use constantly

tracing is like training wheels, but the goal should be to learn how to draw, with or without reference, without the tracing part

i've noticed the art meta lately is people who say that referencing and/or tracing is an absolute no-no, and people who say you should just trace constantly to learn

honestly, i feel like it should be somewhere in the middle. referencing is 100% fantastic and everyone does it whether they admit it or not; even the masters used reference, typically looking at others' work, or having models or props to paint from

however...

TL stop moving so i can boost the right posts
