the composition is off, too central. there are too many colors for such fragmented planes or at least it feels that way since their contrast is not pleasing try to define a set of colors that are nice to look at maybe use the color you had on the backgroung for those apples

Artists who get popular on Tumblr improve far less than anyone else I've ever seen. After all, why put effort into improving or studying when you have thousands of followers willing to harass anyone who tells your art is less than perfect?
Anyways, what about them makes it so easy to pick out "tumblr artists" when browsing the internet? I find myself spotting them frequently whether I want to or not.
phone is probably too small and will give you bad habits. A real tablet might be too much of an investment this early on, so yea basically any writing utensil and paper to get started. All your skills will transfer to digital later if you stick with it. What you use doesn't matter when starting so don't get hung up on materials.
>>2357719 the alien itself is an ok model. I can't say much about that since I'm not a 3d artist myself. what I can say is that from the standpoint of an artist in general, the grass and wall are very lazily done. There's no depth in this, no visual intrigue and the textures themselves lack very little connection. another issue is the light source does not read well.

Good question. I think a complete well rendered pice should be the aggregate of knowledge one learns many thumb nails and quick studies. Better to do that than run right in spend hours rendering a pice, hoping the anatomy and comosition is correct. I'm interested to hear other opinions.
I understand that to git gud we should embrace failure, and prolifically so, but I can't help but feel bad when my art is bad. I've heard that linking your self worth to your work is bad for you and your productivity, but how can I remove said link?
I can work hard and fill my sketchbook for a few days but then I start to feel like my drawings are terrible and thus I'm terrible. They're worthless beginner trash and so I'm worthless beginner trash, etc. I'm not looking for a feels thread, I'm just interested if someone knows how to get... Comment too long.

>>2357548 I struggled with the same thoughts for almost all my time drawing, worsening for each stroke I put down. Every session the self-criticism got harsher, and in the end I slowly but surely put down the pencil. Today I don't draw anymore. It has been around four to five months since I last drew. It was truly debilitating and I know exactly what you mean. I have tried asking the same question as you have earlier, but I don't believe there's a simple fix.
