I have trouble learning from books and I get easily bored etc.
What other methods would you recommend me for learning to draw?
There are tonnes pf video lectures out there, try them, especially if you're a visual learner.
Does this look like tracing?
Is tracing inherently bad?
Why aren't we getting better just by looking at books, pictures and that shit
I fucking hate drawing, I'd rather just read a theory about it so I can get at it without all that unnecessary crap
>friends are out drinking or partying
>im drawing or painting
>friends are studying and working
>im drawing or painting
>friends are getting married and buying homes
>im drawing or painting
>be actually successful
>have lots of friends
>travel the world
>people come from everywhere to meet me and commission works from me
>never lonely unless suicidal or depressed
I don't know anon maybe you need to get better, do you think this painting by an artist depicting all his friends was made by a neet.
Is drawing porn (hentai and erotic comix) or fan-art the only way to success as a digital artist and make some of money?
Looking for more sketches with this style,please drop.also consider it a challenge to draw yourself with this style... currently I'm trying to make one.
Avant garde thread
Should I do Game Art at university? I'm not sure they teach anything you can't learn for free at home, but I'm feeling the pressure to "do something" with my life.
Anyone doing similar courses?
I want to major in something normal and minor in illustration or painting. I think there's a game dev club, too so I can get experience there. However, this is the most ideal since there are the obstacles of financial burden and my shitty time management. Other than that, that's my ideal.
The whole teach yourself at home meme doesn't include other costs such as what you give up by going to school. You give up the time to have a job. By having a job, you give up the time to learn. Just do it and stop holding yourself back for some stupid reason. The more time you put in, the better you'll be.

What's /ic/'s essential painting or work?
Korean Girl I
Who /noprogress/ here? I have been drawing real people for a month now and my last art is pretty much on the same level as my first one. If not worse. Also Ive been drawing a lot of pictures 5 to 30 minutes.
Talent is not a fucking meme. Pic rel my last piece
>Talent is not a fucking meme. Pic rel my last piece
with people like you I tend to agree, but not on that you got no talent, you got no brain
fuck of crybaby, kill yourself, be a whore somewhere else
1. Get an object or objects
2. Place them somewhere you can see them
3. Draw/paint/sketch them for a while
4. Post in this thread
Nice idea for a thread, I might contribute a bit later.
Crits for your pic: Nice colours and I like that you are painting so opaquely. The ellipses need a lot of work though, they are wonky and the ones near the bottom of the bottle are thinner when they should be getting taller since they are farther from the horizon line. Maybe do some light construction lines before painting next time.
I want my art to be cartoony and stylized. Should I abandon that for the time being and worry about anatomy? (Obviously yeah)
Or should I try to balance it? I have no idea how to approach this.
And maybe just an explanation on the fundamentals overall.
How do I draw realistic hair with a pencil, guys?
A friendly reminder on how to make it
>go to bed before midnight.
>eat at least 3 full meals a day.
>adventure the great out doors(not the hallway outside your bedroom).
>stop drawing furries.
but how will i have time to draw if i sleep?
You are not an artist
/ic, give me a good training course. Literally
>1st day this
>2nd day that
>3rd day that
im just too lazy to think what I have to do and it makes me want to drop this shit entirely. I just want to draw and draw and not think about irrelevant stuff, you know what I mean?
Search the waorsu /ic/ archives for Aguri

Now get to work.
this post is already triggering honestly
If you don't have the discipline to do something as make a practice regimen, how do you think we'll expect you to have the discipline to study every day?
Which one looks better artistically speaking?
Hey /ic/, has an artist you liked ever just suddenly disappeared and never came back?
As an example, very recently I suddenly remembered Paixin/Paixi and how his deviantart suddenly deactivated. I was hoping his tumblr was still going but strangely there was only an ask about what happened to his DA and two of his pieces, nothing else.
Even his twitter is gone, and it seems that only remnants can be found when searched on google and some weird russian site. http://pikabu.ru/story/znakomtes_paixin_4066028
Some artists just explode. Nervous breakdowns, the like. Sometimes it's more of a depressive breakdown so they just disappear.
There's that one artist, NitroTitan, who comes to mind, dozens more than that over the years.
>Some artists just explode. Nervous breakdowns, the like. Sometimes it's more of a depressive breakdown so they just disappear.
This happens now and then, yup. Sometimes too someone will get a studio job and just delete their old art, and since they are working they don't feel the need to post new stuff online as self promotion or anything.
>drawing for free
Can anyone share his notes from Erik Olson Perspective pls
Are video games art? Are they a waste of time?
Post your comics
In light of /ic/'s general negativity we are going to do a thought experiment. ITT we post works, other or our own and we can ONLY say positive things about them.
It doesn't have to be lies, if the pic looks like shit, comment on what looks like least shit, you can do it!
I'll start, I like the way the artist shaded the light arm.
I like the perspective in this piece and how the throne she sits on is made out of little patches of rectangle-ish paint.
I like the over all softness of the painting, and of course semi realistic is always welcome.
Look at the nose, what a gentle nub of a nose. Delightful.
... I like the way she uses the orange color and the slight squashed look of the face as its rests on the hand. I like cats too so that doesn't hurt. All in all a relaxing painting. Nice to look at.
Haven't studies since months, I still enjoy drawing but the hard thing is to get my ass up and get into it.
How do your construct your character when you draw a pose? I can't do boxes and shapes, I always instinctively go for what I see on the picture and I skip steps I think
How bad is it to plagiarize a pose? Like if I was drawing some character art for a project and I heavily referenced the pose from someone else's obscure fanart of something completely different, is that immoral and likely to cause me to get called out in the future?
I see game art blatantly copying faces from celebrities even, but I know that doesn't make it OK, even for an amateur like me.
As far as copying things go a pose is probably the least immoral. If you are worried then just use the poses you like as inspiration and change it slightly. This way too you probably will get a pose that matches what you want more exactly too.
when it comes to art, the ends justify the means. do whatever you want. trace/copy/steal. DOing these things makes you a shitty artist but it doesnt mean you'll have shitty art if you do it right.
