Frens, I just noticed that our Drawfag thread 404'd in July and we haven't had a draw thread for almost two months.
Last thread: >>325005 →
This is a thread for anything drawing related. Don't feel forced to limit yourself to this thread for this board though. If you have a thread or a post in mind that relates to drawing on the board but outside this thread, then post it.
Post drawings, thoughts about drawings, critiques of drawings, post inspiring art, and etc. here.

Feel free to make any modification u feel like to this if you come up with something funnier. ^^

I felt like posting this video here. Saw it a while ago. I really like Bob as an artist. He is pleasant. Hope this can come to some use for some of u lurkers. ^^
The question is: Is she dogpaddling or doing butterfly strokes? ^^
Is learning photo realism, the way to becoming a true artist?
If you think "true art" has to be photorealistic, I suppose. I personally don't consider the degree of realism or stylization to be the most important criterion for ranking art, though.
No, I'm not saying that I'm thinking this. I'm just asking. A lot of times people judge your ability as an artist from who well you can capture reality but people also appriciate intresting abstraction.
So I guess I'm just pondering if one can focus soley on learning one of them. Ig, they sort of tie into each other. I also have heard that to really make intresting pieces of abstraction you should learn realism first but I don't know anything when it comes to this, I'm just thinking out loud.
I'm just humble newbie. ^^

So how would you rank art or do you think one even can rank art to begin with?
I'm curious, fren.^^
My preview of art is about communicating something.
The work is about:
The Artist (You)
The Subject Matter (the artwork)
The Audience (a mirror to reflect on)
A tangential Subject Matter (what it says about something)
The Piece itself (about the artwork but not necessarily the content)
Biological and Psychological pleasures. (It looks pretty and aesthetically pleasing. Also how competently it's done.)
I think that art says something what makes a 'good' artist is whether they can talk using that strange language.
What makes a 'good' artwork depends on the audience (or desired communication).
Most art says something simple, "This is, it exists." Ect.
I do think that drawing realistically is probably a useful way to improve your drawing skills, since it's the best way to improve the various skills needed for art, (e.g. construction, perspective, composition).>>367086>So how would you rank art or do you think one even can rank art to begin with?
There are objective measures by which an work can be said to be technically good or not, like the examples I listed above, but there can also be cases where I think one work of art is less technically impressive than another but prefer it, as a matter of taste or values or just because it makes me feel something more.
I will think through a reply.
Here's a piece of art that makes a statement about society in the meantime^^
There's a reason the best artists that lived aren't known for photorealism. Like this anon's post >>367099
It's about what the artist has to say, they're thoughts and feelings of nature, people, etc. Photorealism, while an impressive skill, is often shallow and lacks imagination.

This is also why I don't think AI will ultimately replace human artists, even if it gets to the point where it's no longer blatantly obvious that something was done by AI.
