Art Cringe thread
So, what is the outlook for a weeb artist who dropped out of high school and has no formal training? Did I fuck up? Am I fucked?
Everything is about self motivation and practice. Life is what you make out of it, but those that understand this don't need to ask this. Should've studied more, not just art, just in general. An artist should be well learned in more than just art. Draw inspiration from life and studies and interests.
You're in a better position than many students at formal art schools, but that isn't saying much.
please don't be gentle
Made me kek
Look like motherfuckin elves
Is a masterpiece
Does anyone know of any contemporary art forums? I'm looking to find more artists. College is generally good but I want to find more ppl, I still haven't found anyone that I could help me truly work out a vision for the future. Most people aren't very ambitious. Maybe I just need to move to New York to find people
New sketchbook thread
If it's in your sketchbook, it belongs in this thread.
this has a very loose connection for what this thread is for, but listen.
Does anybody put a little effort into making their own sketchbooks instead of buying one, using a pad or just using printer paper and a cheap clipboard?
It's out of the way, but a nice handmade sketchbook goes a long way (and definitely cheaper then buying a moleskin).

I just started recently. It's super comfy and its nice to be able to make a sketchbook with whatever paper you want.
ITT: you post examples of your art style.
Post em now.
-Do not rate or give critiques unless if the artist specifically requests it.
-If someone is RUDE tell them to not expect much from an hour's work.
-Posting WIP's, studies, "doodles", and random sketches are highly encouraged.
-The art must be fresh. Like you just drew it in the past hour.
Show me your best
It's insane the straws that people are willing to grasp at in order to NOT improve.
What do you like listening to while you draw? Favorite music to study too? Art podcasts?
Funky stuff when I want to draw dynamic stuff, and I personally like the whole Air gear soundtracks by the skankfunk team, fucking masterpiece.
Chillstep/lounge stuff when I did my last study was pretty cool.
I even enjoy putting gaming streams sometimes, inspiration may bloom from a cool move/animation, but mostly put music that fits what i'm drawing.
I've been trying to avoid stuff with lyrics lately. Even though I don't feel like I'm distracted, the brain listens to and interprets words whether we notice or not.
Soundtracks generally feel like a good option. I'll usually look up a soundtrack for a movie/game thematically similar to what I'm working on. I was listening to the Fury soundtrack while drawing some WWII stuff and it got me pretty in the mood.
Daily reminder that life isn't fair

I'm looking for great female illustrators. Can you guys name a few?
YOU! Yes, YOU RIGHT THERE! I don't give one fuck if you're tired, uninspired, masturbating, seeking advice, or feeling as if you will never be good enough! You will STOP! NOW! I want you to DRAW! You must draw something - anything - and make even the slightest improvement! Then, you will do it again. Not because I'm telling you, but because it's the reason you picked up a pencil in the first place.
What if I told you I am coloring a butt naked Miku right now while listening to hard trance techno?
