I'm currently going with various pen and nib + pentel brush pen combination. I like the nibs for their thin lines cause I like getting as close to the detail as possible. And the brush pen I use to cover large areas of shadow.

I'm currently still trying to find that perfect balance of thin detailed lines and heavy thick shadows. Its a work in progress but I'm liking the combo so far
at home: w&n brush + maru nib + faber castell pitt artist pens.

on the go: pentel poket brush + pitt pens.

It allows for some extreme detail work, although the non-existent line weight can get a bit sterile, so you might want to go over certain areas with a nib pen or brush.

I'm a newfag learning to draw and every tutorial/class i've seen online recommends to use pen/pencil and paper to start. Now I have a good old wacom tablet and I don't understand the benefit of wasting time on a medium that I'm never going to use - paper.

One of the reasons presented was the ease on which I'd be tempted to erase/delete mistakes digitally, but that assumes I am going to cheat on my learning process...and if so I'd as easily erase my shit drawings on paper as well so it seems an invalid point. Another laughable one I read this week on a reddit learning sub was about wacom tablets having issues with drivers etc. So to me that is just saying that you recommend paper because you can't computer properly...so another invalid reason.

Learning tablet-hand-eye coordination seems to be a skill on itself, so why not learn directly on the medium I'm probably going to use for life instead of wasting time on traditional? Unless you are a cintiqfag, a tablet is actually harder to use than paper because you are basically blind-drawing. I have no intention of pursuing traditional arts, my goal is digital concept art and cheat as much as I can with 3D and photobashing btw, so any considerations about becoming a "master" don't concern me, I just want to learn to draw to express rough ideas, so why is paper and pen/pencil so important?

What does anon think?

Op said he had a tablet already

Totally changes everything. My fault.

Then I guess anon should just be practicing on that fancy tablet instead of paper instead of asking advice.
people buy wax paper and stick it to the tablet with tape, it almost feels like paper, you should try that.
Tl;dw - use whatever you want, just practice
Personally I have never met anyone who was already skilled in traditional media and then had serious problems in transitioning to tablets.

There is no digital vs traditional. Media specific techniques are just icing on the cake of your core skills. Any pro concept artist could pick up oils and be decent in couple of weeks.

You like to work digital? Go for it nigga but don't imagine you're hot shit for being familiar with Photoshop interface.

What is your large overarching purpose for creating art? For the longest time, I admired it and liked doing it because it the art I liked looked cool, and I wanted to replicate that. Now it seems a bit shallow, and my motivation to continue learning and practicing is waning. I am asking myself, "why should I do this" a lot now when I draw. I feel like having a deeper purpose to creating art would rekindle that motivation. What is your purpose to create art?

I have a basic need in creating things.
It doesn't have to be art, but as long as I draw, build, write, or just use my mind and hands to make something from nothing, I feel a sense of fulfilment and belonging in this world.
Like when you take a huge shit or have a orgasm.
I like you very much.

Post your current drawing here and be an asshole to others!
Please make sure your posted image is clear, DOWNSIZED TO AROUND 1000 PIXELS WIDE, ROTATED TO THE CORRECT ORIENTATION, and that any unused space is cropped.
If you want critique on a drawing from the previous thread, you can delete it there and repost in this one and then kill yourself.

is patreon a form of begging

i thought about making a patreon but i dont want to cut my balls off in the process

Patreon is a service, you are selling extras to people interested in your work.

If all you are saying is "I draw, give me money", then yes, you are begging
we are all beggars
If you expect any more then a few extra pocket-dollars a month, then yes, you'll need a large follower base (like 10 000 and above followers)
tfw you make patreon and you only get $1/month for a year
