How does this bit even work? It honestly feels like it's cheating at times. Before I'm even done, it can guess it already as if it knew the answer already. Or maybe it did as a result of seeing how other people drew it, it figured out the process.
>25 years old now. >I have been drawing for 10 years >I am not improving at all. I'm starving because I don't get money from art.
What should I do? Also, how to stop of thinking on post my work on social media even before I start that drawing, for example, think something like "I should post an overwatch fan art, yes, I am going to draw a shitty overwatch drawing instead to make a master study for me.
The piece you posted here looks like a shitty study at best. That's not a proper illustration. Try doing something interesting/unique and you'll get some work.
Why the fuck would you want to do an Overwatch fan art anyway? Everybody's doing it so why bother... It's not like your piece would be a billion times better than all the shit we see every day on Facebook or DA. It's not like you're gonna gey a job with that shit.

>>2754180 well i started up not that long ago on /b/, and personally know and am ready for that thrashing that is the opinion. yah i do fell like i could improve vastly, i'm trying to improve my prospective, size's and becoming more consistent. even if this was a copied and pasted image i have taken it to heart and thank you for the advice!
I've been out of it for a long time should I start up with paintool sai or use this oppurtunity to learn clip studio paint from scratch? A lot of artists I like get faux-traditional lineart effects with CSP.
>>2753651 How could you hate CSP's UI? It's nearly identical to Photoshop and better in a lot of ways, imo. I love how they combined a lot of tools that do similar things and you can just cycle through them with . and , it's freed up so many other keys for me to make shortcuts with. Best of all I never have to click on any tabs and have them come out of their damn slots then have to rearrange them back in again. Everything else works the same as far as I can tell, tab hides all the tools, most of the shortcut... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2753651 Jesus christ I am drunk let's try that again.
CSP is fucking awesome for linework and most painting, especially sketching, has a good workflow for comics, and the UI is better than PS in most places. Also it's what all the faggot idols drawing dogboipucci and muscle shota use so you can get the look out of the box and start milking them neetbux.
>>2753661 CSP is the closest I've ever gotten to the feel of traditional media in a digital program, personally. It's to the point where it feels even more comfortable to draw in than on paper which I love, for the record. But all else aside, the total deal breaker for me is the fact that Sai has a high frequency of crashing WHILE saving. It's one thing for the program to be unstable and crash while you're working but for it to crash and corrupt your file or not even create the save file while you're trying to save it would piss me off to unfathomable levels. For that and the fact that even the extended version of CSP is way cheaper than Sai, I invested in CSP and so far I've loved it.
>>2754124 If I had better interwebs I could upload it to you, unfortunately even 1-10 is 43 gigs. 11-16 weighs additional 16.7 gigs. Settle for Vandruff in the meantime and wait for cgp to open their doors.
>>2751179 it doesn't really look animu to me. I think just adjusting some of the perspective on things like the shoulders and breasts would help, and making sure the get the skull in perspective correctly.
I use the pomodoro method. 25 minutes work then 5 minutes rest. I get up and dance, shadowbox and move around during the break. Sounds goofy but it helps. Moving also gives you more mental juice for increased focus.
>>2753777 His books on drawing are the most lauded since he's a fairly good introductory teacher, but feel free to read all of it.
In terms of most useful books, though, you'd go from the drawing books straight to more draftsmanship stuff like Scott Robertson, then to something like Alla Prima 2.
I mean, of all the crap that you could read on illustration demoing and tutorials, Andrew Loomis' work is in no way particularly detrimental unless you're an incredibly impressionable and inflexible... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Does anyone here use the Surface Book for sketches? When I initially used the drawing feature on mine I wasn't impressed, but it does seem quite a bit improved with updates. The only thing is that I can't find a decent drawing program that works well on it. Photoshop is okay but I really preferred Autodesk Sketchbook, and even though the new version functions okay I hate the lack of features and subscription pay model. The old versions are a pain to use due to the DPI scaling.
TL;DR - Any Surface Book owners out there who have found a good sketching program... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Anyway, finish the fucking picture before you render it. And watch torso length - good rule of thumb is that the hand, outstretched, will form a perfect palm over the crotch. Not halfway down the thighs, just the junk.
I know that all I want to do is draw, and I am putting as much work in as possible. My problem is with my final year of high school, I am taking all kinds of AP courses because I was deemed to be the least retarded autist. Its taking most of my time that I would rather spend studying art, so what should I do?
>>2752553 Depends what your goals are. If you want to do art college then it might be a good idea to focus on schoolwork as it can help with scholarships and AP courses can mean you skip out on taking the same shit in college.
If you are going a year where you draw only a little bit it's not going to matter in the long run. When you are 50 will you care if you drew only an hour a day at age 17 than if you drew 2 hours a day then?
Because we should not have to make new threads or post in draw threads with our fundamental exercises. Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make someone proud.
AVOID asking unrelated questions, there is a question thread for that.
