Woodstock is the GOAT on gawd
What should I practice if I want to draw fashion dresses? Just pick a dress each day and take time on it? Are there drawing fundamentals I should consider practicing first? Thank you
Ive been practicing for almost 4 months and I’ve made a lot of progress in a short amount of time (traditional art, manga style), but recently, I’ve been feeling lot of stress about it. The pressure to do well. Any idea on how to kick this?
As we all know reference is not cheating but if I literally redraw the reference is it cheating ? Or can you call it learning ? At the same time it isn’t cause lots of people do that. And it’s actual art but I somehow feel guilty/ like I’m just copying but at the same time it takes time, effort and skill so it’s art ? I’m really confused here and feel like what I make doesn’t count since it’s merely a hobby of mine. Please help me figure this out. Thanks!!
Any tips appreciated
