So I downloaded that mediafire link of over 450 of 0033's work, and it blew my mind. Amazing draftsmanship and form with such simple lines. I want to understand how he does what he does, and I was confused by some of the things he is doing.
Does anyone have a translation of this page? Can you figure out what it means? He often uses Xs at joints, and I am not sure I understand their purpose. My best guesses are they find the centerpoint of the limb in order to have the gesture flow through it, or they are there to help maintain the width when he foreshortens. Neither... Comment too long.

Should I be charging low when starting out, even if I believe I should be charging more for the quality they are getting? I feel as if high priced art only works because they have a big audience, thus a greater chance to find people who are willing to pay that much.
>>1836121 Yeah, charging very little just undermines everyone else and fucks up the already fucked up industry. Don't undersell yourself. That being said, if your art is at a level that doesn't warrant semi decent pay, then you shouldn't be trying to get work in the first place.
Hi guys. So I've recently come to the conclusion that I want to learn to draw, my chief inspiration being Kim Hyung-tae. The thing is that I'm in my early thirties, and have absolutely no experience with art whatsoever. I would even say that I don't really have a very good concept of what it takes to be a proficient artist.
So I was hoping you could give me your honest opinions on this. Am I too old to learn to do this? Is there a talent ceiling, or do you feel that this can be mastered with enough practice and determination? Anyone with a similar experience?
Your... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1822820 have you ever done anything similar? (something that requires a huge amount of dedication) because even though you say you know it takes "practice", you may not know what you're in for. you'll be shit for months/years depending on your talent, and you may hit a plateau and be stuck there forever.
if you want to start it as a hobby, just go right ahead. if you want to get good though, get a sketchbook, draw A LOT, and do some of the academic practices as well.
hey guys, so i grew up a poor fag but i've had access to computers all my life and when i was 14 i saved up and bought a drawing tablet (a shitty one but still)
ever since i've been doing daily studies and i've gotten very good at painting on photoshop and painttool sai and stuff like that
but i've never had enough money to get into traditional art until now, so i just went out and bought a bunch of brushes and gouache tubes, and a nice heavy expensive moleskin notebook
i have no idea how to use these, i only have some small experience with water colours and i've never had any formal training
what do? how do i learn? my older brother showed me how to mix paint but he's gone to college now and i don't know anyone who could teach me
i've read dozens of books on anatomy and drawing and i have 4+ years experience with painting on photoshop but i have no idea how to apply these skills in a physical medium with real big brushes and canvases
what are some good resources that could teach me these stuff? like a good online video series or some books
>expensive You should start by buying cheap shit to start out with.
The process in traditional is a lot different than digital, because you can't just undo and redo and repaint everything whenever and however you want.
IMO Since you haven't done it before, you should just try to get the feel for it first. Don't try to make a master painting or even necessarily a painting yet. Do a similar thing that you would do when sketching, draw random objects/shapes and try to get familiar with how paint blends and works.
>>1716858 Oh, and here are my artist folders. I'm not that good at organizing things though. But yeah, this is a good chunk of my stuff, also have some other folders elsewhere. Lemme know if anything is of interest.
