Is it worth it to bail college and focus on art? I'm 21 years old and getting real tired of education, not to mention from a 3rd world country where engineers make $400 a month on average. I'd rather just focus on art and live on commissions for $100 a piece. What do you guys think? yay or nay?
Worth it in what way? Financially it's a fucking retarded decision. Especially if you've already invested in a year or two of college. If you're going to decide to be a professional craftsman in any craft you should already be good enough to make at least a bit of income at it, so that when you take the plunge you already have a bit of a setup. Going full NEET when you aren't even good at art is a seriously retarded decision in almost every way, hone your skill as an artist while making a living and then try to become a professional when you're...

I think it's basically good enough that /ic/ isn't going to give you much useful advice. I can't really see any flaws at this stage except maybe the focus of the image isn't clear enough and it's a fairly dull concept overall.
I'd recommend pushing it to the next stage, filling in the detail. If you can keep the standard that you have put into the rough going all the way to the end, this should be a professional level piece.
Do you guys have any tips/strategies for painting hair? it seems like a difficult subject a lot of people have trouble with. I have a few images In different styles, but I have no idea how to approach them.
Hi! I've wanted to do this for a long long time, so here it is, I guess! I'm gonna start a skype group for people from /ic/ looking for new friends to either help with critiques, or even study buddies. The only thing I ask though, is that you're remotely interested in art and improving your skill. The last thing I want is a circle-jerk of people who wish they could draw and do nothing about it. I'm willing to host some video calls if anyone would like, too, as i draw better while I'm talking to someone.

As a young man with not much money lining his pockets, i look for good ways to avoid forking out currency for things that can be found for free. As such, for my Note 5, i need a new app for drawing. I currently use ArtFlow and have tried MediBang Paint. I enjoy ArtFlow, but it restricts making more than 2 layers, 90% of brushes, and the amount of undos. The layers part really grinds my gears. Could i get any help here? I have enjoyed this art board very much, and look forward to further interaction with you guys.
If i might add, my friend has access to a full version of an app called something along the lines of Clover Paint, which requires money for that but he's said that he got it for free. He's kind of a dick about helping me out, so if anyone has insight on that, it would be very much appreciated.
>>2598713 I'm actualy ok with these modern art hipsters calling actual artists that try to improve their skill 'ilustraturs' instead of 'artists' to seperate themsellves from people with skill. and there is always something to laugh at aslong as these snowflakes are around.
I can't make money from my art which I can cope with. I have met somebody that tried to help me, and they did, but there's an embargo on my head. This person still wants my art, which is great, it has never been appreciated before (well, when it was it always turned out a poor show).
They do not have a great deal of money so I'm happy to let them own my art for free, I re-touch old works so they are fitting for their new owner, the slightest changes.
They do want to pay me for my work, and this is where it goes queer.

Been browsing every pages and couldn't find something quite related to what I'm looking for, so here goes:
I used to go on dA as a teenager and moved on to Tumblr and Instagram as I grew tired of the whole circlejerking tendency of dA.
I've gotten many followers and whatnot, but nobody talks to me, or critiques my work. I want interaction with people and a sense of community, as just posting art to get as many reblogs gets incredibly boring and unstimulating.
Where should I go to have actual interaction with people without having to constantly draw fan art/whore my everyday life and post selfies throughout my blog to make myself more relatable?
>TL;DR This thread is basically giving the idea of creating field journals of fantasy creatures and also asking where I could find some.
I've recently found that I have a bit of an obsession with giants, humanoids to be more specific. There's just something about the wild but gentle protectors of the wood that always fascinated me. I also love the idea of finding an old journal in a forest filled with anatomical sketches of beasts and descriptions of their behavior (I can't remember where I got this idea from and I would very...

>>2589837 That sounds pretty cool actually. I kinda want to make one that's like a world war journal filled with charcoal sketches of guns and tanks etc. Any idea where you can buy an old timey journal thing?
>>2589906 Honestly the best option would be to make your own. But if you're lazy or feel you want a stylized one, just Google "old leather journals". That's how I got the OP picture.
I plan on one day showing it to my children, I would have loved that myself. Just imagine clippings of exotic fur, drawings of massive birds and stories of adventures. This could be my life obsession, aside zoology.
Tantalizing paws upon her finessed bust Potent mindful deception over her anatomy Forced wrench of her vibrant razzmatazz cowlick A metamorphic transformation within Dissonant mar amongst her collar Whomping breeze out of her bronchi Writhing towards that holy grail Orgasmic passion trickles down her spine Contortionist psyche without a footprint of regret A Woman brimming with a phobia of reality Demands to be exposed to her rightful residence In this hideous terrene around her
I've been practicing thinking in 3D on paper, but I keep forgetting how to think in 3D after I switch to drawing anatomy, etc.
How do I strike a steady balance between 3D studies, and anatomy studies? I only draw for one hour a day, but shouldn't that be enough?
Should I amp it up to 1 hour of 3D studies, and 1 hour of anatomical studies?
There's a big issue with me doing this though. By the time I'm done with 3D studies, I'm mentally burnt out. I don't see the point in studying anatomy if I don't put it into a good 3D... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The nub on my Huion tablet just off and disappeared. I dumped the contents of my bag and it's nowhere to be found. With the fucking 8 dollar shipping, a new set comes out to 16 bucks.Yeah, I'm a poor bitch, I don't have the money. You guys have any acceptable ideas on a cheaper alternative to jam up in there that may work?
>>2598496 Does your huion have any removable parts, like for the wireless kits and other stuff? the bastards were well hidden there in my Intuos, not under whatever the piece was covering but on the actual piece itself. Try looking there.
Do any of you all have vitamin D deficiencies from not doing art outside? Apparently being an artist is a risk factor for having severe vitamin D deficiency my bud in Medical school told me.
I was suffering from depersonalization, having this horrible feeling like this life and world weren't real and just having a really negative outlook on my own life that would come or go for a year or so. Nothing was really wrong in my life, it was just a feeling, like how sometimes you might be happy for no reason.

Does anyone here had to force themselves to learn how to draw humans (or whatever you wanted to draw)? I'm more or less OK with non-live stuff (pic related), or at least I try to learn and improve the parts that I suck at. I've been doodling mechanical stuff/landscapes since I was a kid. But I can't bring myself to seriously learn anatomy to save my life. I started so many times and never went past basic skeleton anatomy, proportions and basic portraits. live stuff is so flexible and shape-shifting that it gets me all confused and nervous, so I go back to drawing...

>>2596190 Huh, I don't get it anon. You can't draw humans? But you can draw architectural stuff? So you can draw forms, just use that. It really shouldn't be too hard if that is your actual level skill in the pic. Just use that knowledge to abstract the human figure into simpler shapes. Start with that and as you get comfortable start adding more details etc. There are a huge number of books that explain this process. Studying anatomy so you actually understand what you are seeing will fix a lot of that as well. You will understand all that "flexible shape shifting" stuff because you'll know the muscles and bones that are creating those shifts.
Also, why waste your time drawing with a mouse? Seriously what's the point? It's just generally a shitty medium for art and lacks any sort of precision or flexibility, and you don't really gain any useful transferable muscle memory in the way you do going from pencil to tablet.

It is strongly recommended that you use this thread in conjunction with learning the elements and fundamentals of art. You can also discuss the visual elements of various professional artists as well if you keep it relatively articulate and civil.

I'm wondering if anyone can recommend any good physical models for drawing? Particularly a model head and even more particularly I'm looking for one that shows the angles of the head kindof like a polygonal model that's a good size to hold in your hand and use as a reference. I've been searching on ebay and google but pick related is the best I can come up with and it's a bit expensive and not exactly what I'm looking for.
I have an idea for an manga and I want to make it and post it online but i'm really bad at drawing. what do you think I should do? I drew a picture real quick to show my skill but its not my best because I did it in 5mins
There are specialised pencils which produce blacks almost as strong as ink, but generally speaking ordinary graphite will always look light and shiny compared to ink.
I'd recommend moving to paint if you want to go beyond pencil without going digital. Modern paint is convenient enough that everything else is basically just too much trouble.
Contrary to what most people on here are likely to say, I'd also say going digital is a perfectly valid next step. Digital painting offers some opportunities to develop your skills that traditional work doesn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Anyone ever try these? Apparantly they're alcohol based markers that blend and all that but this 36 pack was like 12 dollars at Wal-Mart. Do they compare to copics (I know they don't but would they be decent for practicing before going in for the kill with copics)?
the mark-its were my go-to markers when i was budgeting years ago. imo they're slightly better than sharpies, but some of the colours appear much more dark than the cap suggests. a small handful of markers did dry out a lot faster than others in the same pack, so i guess watch for that.
for what it is & the price/amount, they're not really that bad if its the only thing you have on hand
Hey /ic. I have a question for those of you who do commissions. I'm thinking about doing it in semi-future but I'm clueless about what paypal type account I should use.

but is says that personal has limited "merchant services". If I pick personal account type will I still be able to receive money? From my understanding it is only for buying stuff and sending money. not for receiving.
