Viciously attacked you? Well I would tell people what you sent to me via PM but that would break the rules of bringing a private conversation public. If you want to talk this over my skype is on my profile page because you might be able to convince me to not put you in the video. I'm in class at the moment and I'll be available to speak with you in a few hours, and you need to have a mic because this is an exchange of words, not text because I know you hate reading so much. Hope to speak with you soon.
Also because this is an Art Forums I'll say something to actually make my post here relevant to the topic. When people say "draw from life" that doesn't mean only draw what you see like a still life or something. Because you are not drawing from live, that is the reason your some of your poses don't make any sense. I must have a heart of gold because I'm still somehow helping you out.
You have to realize that I am under a lot of stress at home as well as school. So, that eats up a lot of my time. Even so, I still manage to find the patience and time to draw, as well as try and improve. Have you not been seeing the drills I have posted, particularly my perspective drills? I agree that I should be using references, drawing figures and practicing, and I will. I have already developed a plan to do that much at least, and I expect you to respect my artistic decisions. I am trying to be the least combative out of the both of us, but you keep insisting on pushing my buttons. I will chat with you over Skype if you feel that it is necessary. Hell, I'll even show you some of my pictures I have drawn recently that no one's seen yet just to prove that I do practice if I have to.
And I know I haven't been the most agreeable person here, but I at least deserve some respect for my "Actually Trying" to become a better artist. Doing realism is one of those things that I am very uncomfortable with, yet here I am, proclaiming that I need to pursue it. That deserves some respect, right?
