working on update, have about 1 week before some new computer parts arrive, and got sone new shit to play with from christmas, so yea... pastebin may be updated/corrected/whatever by the time of next thread, if people know what the "needs update" specifically means, be my guest to post something that needs to be added, minor grammar corrections are already happening.
with that said, going to be going through the previous thread now.
what are the best revelations or milestones you hit relating to art?
something that came to me today (which might be obvious to most people) was that the more you draw something you avoided because you are bad at it, the more fun it gets. (inb4 and water is wet)
i had been almost completely avoiding drawing figures, and only focusing on faces until around august. since then i've been progressively working on figures more and more until i'm now getting inspired by other artists figures and proportions. it's really made me realise how much staying...

My biggest milestone was getting off /ic/ and actually doing art. Second biggest thing though was realizing that no matter how much I think I know how to do something, if I can't do it from imagination then I don't really understand it.
Is art for anyone else here extremely mentally straining too? I love drawing but I need to be in peak mental and physical condition to even construct something as simple as a face. Am I the only one with this problem? I've been drawing for years now, read loomis when I was a kid, but still the entire process is hard as fuck for me.
Depends on what part of the drawing I'm doing. Now and then certain parts will fuck my brain pretty hard, especially things I've not done much, but usually for me the process of painting and rendering is pretty mindless and comfy.
Do you guys know of any methods of removing permanent marker from paper? I realize it's a long shot but I'm getting desperate.
I will always make some small mistake while inking and it drives me mad. I might be the only one to notice but that's enough. Every picture I work on ends up in the trash. I would spend days drawing and inking and it just kills me when I make mistakes.
How do you guys make progress? How long does it take to do so and what techniques do you use? I feel as if I am going too slow in progress and that's why I need to know your strategies. Pic related: Very shitty art I made.
Literally until the day you die or quit art. Nobody just "gits gud" and stops, art is often a constant progression (and it's not always an objectively upward trend).
Composition and color wise I actually like your picture, OP. Zoomed in it's a little rough but it's a nice thumbnail.
Anyway, as general goals to maximize improvement, it's probably nothing you haven't heard before - identify your weak points (either through being reflective and self critical... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
three months in hit my first slump. the magic of realizing you must draw what there is not what you think there is is wearing off. Is this natural? If i keep grinding out sketches from life and studying the masters will i get better ( i understand this is probably all you can tell me to do but this is frustrating)
>>2327314 photoshop's more powerful and has a lot more features but i'd love to see krita become more competitive, it's a fantastic concept. if devs who knew what they were doing came together im sure they could greatly advance krita in a few years
