/ic/ help please. You are the only place where i can openly ask this because i dont know any artists to talk to.
After some depression i got... i dont know how to explain it as other than "negative ability" or "curse" or "negative perk" or whatever.
Procrastination. And its awful.
It never was so bad before.
Im working on a project, but because of being lonely and depressive it started to damage my productivity. Im trying to draw something, spending almost a week for it while its the thing that can be done by 2 days. When i go to...

Tried not to make this look like a shitty blog but it kinda does at the end.
So please just keep the "how to do with procrastination when it went so bad you almost cant draw for days" over everything else.
Nothing will change by itself. You can't just wait to be happy, you won't be.
Sounds like you don't have a lot of self discipline.
Go outside once in a while. There's no magic trick, stop thinking of it as a "curse" that you can't control.
You can sit there trying to justify your mistakes and blame everything on "m-muh sadness and derpeshun :((((" but you only have yourself to blame. No outside matter is going to change your situation.
Is there any love for architectural drawings and / or models?
What's /ic/ opinion about his art?
It has charm when someone else cleans up his vision, but it's now a blight that infected all of Blizzard's IPs. Lost all hope when the hd update to wow didn't fix the major flaws in design and even exacerbated some issues.
Hey there anons, post last thing you drew. it does not matter whether it is a sketch, painting or you are just boredly doing mess in MS paint. Do not cheat and not execuse, have a nice week
Well, this isn't the last thing I drew fresh, but is the last thing I was working on. Am still currently working on it.
HI there, I literally am the only person who can not improve from art. I've tried for years and I can't improve. I'm the rare person who can't ever get better at art no matter how much I practice.
Is there hope for me? I've tried and tried, but to no avail has anything worked.
Can you make a living as an illustrator while keeping your personal life out of it? It seems like internet is filled with weird nerds who like to invade people's personal lives the moment they do or say something they don't like.
I'd like to make some cash on the side with my illustration, but I don't want people going after my facebook or my friends or knowing who I am.
Simply operate under a pseudonym. It's been working for me so far. Just be careful not to have any connections to your rl information whatsoever. Don't put your real name on invoices and be careful not to give out TOO specific information and bam. I draw porn, so I don't want this coming back to me at all. I'm so paranoid, people aren't sure if im male or female-- which suits me just fine.
im looking for interesting shape languages to study
would be nice if you guys could dump a few cool ones
artist of the generation?
I have read tons of Loomis but I still don't get how you are supposed to draw figures in extreme perspective angles. There was something about arcs of movement, but even there it was said that you should try to draw them until they "feel right".
It it really the case that you first memorize anatomy and then based on that knowledge try to imagine how it would look like in perspective and keep drawing and fixing until you will gradually learn to draw it right?

I'm not really in a position to comment considering I've only just started with figure drawing, but it seems like thats the case. You figure out box/spherical/cylindrical forms and how they look at any angle and pair that with an understanding of proportion...

Have you been thinking about stopping the whole thing? Like, we will die, all of us. Why should we go for that suffering and go through all that hard ass shit. If you really want to enjoy life, just draw mediocre but enjoyable art. There is no reason to force that pain upon yourself, as I said, you will die eventually, what's the point of improving your skills?
Expressing the suffering in the pointlessness maybe even giving the tools needed to rise above the suffering of the mundane.
Art isn't about getting good, is that why you play games?
Just did this. looking for some feedback.
It's this good enough for an indie fighter?
Right now I quit on the idea of even animating this, is too much effort.
Right now I just want to download spriter and see what I can do.
I'm not even a pro artist and I'm hoping some coder will help me.
What are good masters to study portraits from? I only know Sargent.
It really depends what style you like and what qualities in art you value. Personally I like people such as Van Dyck, Velazquez, Kramskoi, Serov, Repin, Franz Hals, Boldini, Rembrandt, and Freud. Do some research and see what artists you like and what time period they are from--usually there are other artists from the same school or country that have similar styles.
Anyone have good tutorial on how to make something like this ?
