At what point should one make the jump from monochrome into color? Also, did any of you guys get suckered into buying $200 pencils because >muh pigments >muh artist quality before you were at the level to make it a worthwile investment?
When you have absolute confidence in your ability to correctly copy proportion and value* for any number of lighting setups using the comparative measurement method.
To be frank, I think it's a good idea to fuck around with it in traditional media a little all along the way, just for familiarity's sake. However, this should all be kept separate from your real study/practice, just more for 'fun'.
Whenever you're happy with your forms and values. There isn't a defined spot. Color is tricky but once you've got a good idea of value it's a lot more intuitive. Do some studies of stuff with good colors to improve your eye for color (namely: recognizing when something you assume is red is actually brown, purple, etc but just looks red in context).
>>2356824 oh and on value, value is a little tricky, as there really isn't any media, other than maaaybe digital on an amoled screen, that can truly replicate the full range of value you can see. So you kinda have to make decisions on what range of value you're going to choose to represent accurately. You'll have to sacrifice either the upper end or lower end usually.
Hey, /ic/. I still consider myself to be a beginner and I've started reading Loomis, off and on, about eight months ago.
I've been struggling with where to actually start. I've checked out Proko and find is material to be very entertaining as well as educational, but it doesn't really give me a guideline on where I should be/go in the future.
I want to do this the most efficient way possible, but what should I study? Perspective? Anatomy?
I'm lost and hopefully someone can give me an idea.
>>2356700 the problem with art schools is that they never teach pespective until late on.
You should study perspective/anatomy for construction drawing and draw from life/references at the time.
Practice drawing few hundred individual features and simple poses. (some feet, hands, heads, eyes...) focus on doing consistent/ symmetrical drawings. You can go just fine without knowing color theory/compsition at this time.
>>2356660 That makes sense, anon. I'm asking because I got a commission from a woman in her 40s that I'm acquainted with enough to know she's self conscious about the slight droopiness on her cheeks (because she's a bit on the chubby side) and two semi-dark spots on her face. I'm very conflicted on this.

Though strong draughtsmanship and the ability to draw from life are important, CalArts seems to be more interested in your potential as an artist. From what I've seen, they're looking to see how you are as a storyteller and an illustrator, and how open you are to experimenting. If you're looking for an animation school that you can easily grind your way into, check out Sheridan.
Hello there, I have just finished preparing closed captions for my latest movie and thus I would like to ask more international community to rate my work. It is hard not to sound pushy - taking into consideration the number of views - but I hope you won't perceive it as an ad. I find making movies quite rewarding and I would like to get better - it would be nice if you could help me (development is the key - do scan through previous movies to see the changes). This time we prepared quite impressive scenography and make up; technical mambo-jambo also makes me laugh

Sup everybody I don't have any money nor much spare time or skill, but I designed several characters in anime style and also drafted up a story. Like I said I just can't really work on it right now, but I'll be posting some of this stuff if anyone's interested in taking ownership of it. Its not licensed or anything so if you like anything you see its yours to use. If not I'll just leave the thread alone
The drawings and characters were designed by myself probably at least 10 years ago. Recently I got into One Punch Man and I was sort of inspired... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
