Santino Fontana - I Feel Pretty
how do boys look good without makeup
Because society hasn’t told boys they look bad without it
Art doesn’t have rules. And if it did, the only thing I say to that is: rules are made to be broken.
I’m not saying this as an excuse not to learn perspective or anatomy or all that nice good stuff that is pretty essential, I’m saying this because the thing is, all the famous artists broke the “rules” that people had in their century and are now TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS as a fucking genius. Every single great artist out there broke a rule or two(even in music, literature…).
ART IS NOT MATH. STOP TREATING IT LIKE IT.
if you think math is built on rules only and is unrelated to art
you’re doing art AND math wrong
One of the art teachers at my high schools likes to do critiques in front of the class for certain assignments. During a critique one day a girl who was one year older than me brought up a small acrylic painting she had done for a homework sketch. The girl said that she wasn’t especially happy with the piece herself and that she wished that she had done certain things differently. She knew very well what was wrong with the piece and what needed to be done in order to make it better. It was then that my art teacher replied:
"Well, then why don’t you fix it?"
As simple a concept as it may be “just fix it” is easily the best bit of advice I have ever received when it comes to art. It embarrasses me that I didn’t think of it sooner…
I’d like to chime in to answer the art teacher’s question:
Because you often know what’s bad about your own art, but that doesn’t mean you can fix it.
Sometimes you just work ceaselessly on something, but it just isn’t working, and you can’t get it to look how you want to, even if you know what its problem spots are.
Sometimes the answer is really to start over, or do something differently.
You can be stumped even if you know what you should do differently. We’re often our biggest critics, but sometimes, what you want to do and what you’re able to do just don’t match up. And that’s okay.
