  • I imagine you had a good design going through your head which is nice. I feel like your design is being hurt by drawing stereotypes.

    What do I mean "drawing stereotypes?"
    Here is what I mean...
    Quickly draw a house and a tree however you want.
    Drawn them? Ok. Did your drawing look like the one at the bottom of the page? If so, you fell into the stereotype drawing. You've been raised and grew up with the idea of a typical house being a square and triangle with maybe 2 windows and a large rectangle door, maybe a small chimney... And a tree is just a squiggly bush thing with a log at the bottom.
    If you want to further see the wonders of psychological drawing stereotypes, sit in front of a mirror and draw a self portrait of your face in 20 minutes or less. Stop. Put your drawing aside somewhere you can't see it. Now, draw a pic of your parent with the same gender-- for you that'd be female. Don't look off any pics, just draw from memory of what she looks like and give yourself only 20 minutes.
    Once that is done, compare pics. Do your pictures look similar? If so, you are being hurt again by drawing stereotypes. You have an idea of what things should look like on a face and it is hurting your creativity and drawing.

    Getting rid of drawing stereotypes is the first way to move on to better designs and more advanced art. These are things I started in the beginning of my art classes freshman year of high school. The only house I drew was the house below. After 4 years of drawing 5 times a day for an hour, I got MUCH better.

    In your drawing specifically, your drawing stereotypes are being hurt by grass being generically 'pointy' blades. The flowers are being portrayed as circles with squiggle circle around them followed by a stem stick with one or two leaves. The stars/cloud/sun are being portrayed as the interpretation of concepts you may have grown up with.

    Try expanding your horizons. I'm sure you can :)
    Maybe look and observe at these things in nature as you see them day to day. Does the sun really have a defined circle or is just kind of a fuzzy ball? Is grass really that pointy, all in a same height and all in the same direction? Are stars all the same size, and spaced evenly in the sky? Do flowers look like that or are they more complex?

    It is just things to think about. I know you can do it :D

    TL;Dr; It is great you are doing art and having ideas, but you are being hurt by drawing stereotypes. Try observing nature and changing uo your drawing :)

    • drawing five times a week*
      Not five times a day for an hour LOL

    • Omg, I love your opinion!! <3 I'll definitely try genuinely next time, it took me like 20 secs to draw this so I guess it should be expected it was horrible.. I don't think I can draw 'people' (can you by the way? ) but I'll definitely try!!

    • Good luck! With enough practice, you'll be great in no time :)

      I can draw people, but I've always been more of an animal person myself.
      Here are some things I've done before.

    • Yeahhh i'm creative lol

    • It's hard to just come up with things randomly and draw it well enough to recognize it so who knows maybe being bored you'll come up with new things again😊
