It's a freaking joke, dude.
hi brian
sorry, not my name
My art appeals to furries when I don't want it to (I like drawing anthros).
Somebody help me. I want to make it in the real world.
get out of here

Nice trips.
Open up two different views of the same pic to keep track of the whole picture (Norasuko has good vids) and practice muscle confidence (Peter Han's Dynamic sketching etc). Do lots of inking.

There's not much else you can do, if your workflow involves clean linework I'd heavily advise you to switch over to Clip studio, Krita or Sai for this, Photoshop is infamous for its awful inking.

Love this Pixiv artist. The poses they make are really smooth and nice to the eyes.
>I'd heavily advise you to switch over to Clip studio, Krita or Sai for this
so much this. My linework and brush movement improved 10x after switching to CSP. I'm not going back to photoshop except for a few fancy filters

I'm planning on going back into the normal world at some point and finding ways to stride out there with my artwork, and not constantly hiding myself.
But I have a big problem.
And an embarrassing one..
I feel like anthros are the best thing I can draw and I enjoy talking to other artists similar to my interests (fur community). I really REALLY like drawing anthros and some furry work in my own time (and the gay type too, with my kink thrown in). I'm a gay dude with a sense of humour (doesn't like flaunting it either), I like going out of my way to meet new people and want to be taken seriously when I need to be. All of that can be really complicated if you're planning to sell your work to different audiences with these things attached to your artistic identity.
My biggest issue (and fear, if you will ) is having my irl name tied to my work when I just want to make art casually, especially if I realise I want to go down the route of music, a business, photography or whatever (maybe even game journalism or something).
I feel like my interests will become evident in my work and having my name tied to it all is giving me bad anxiety at the ramifications of it all down the line, and the mockery and bullying that will stem from it all will be insane (I swear to god, women have it easy when it comes to shit like this).

Any advice? What do I do?

Can somebody please help me with drawing portraits and faces? I know how to construct a head, BUT I have hard time drawing features. This is my level right now (lmao). I need something like a good book or videocourse about features, please send help.
Fuck, I forgot to resize image to 1000 px .__. I'm sorry I'm a newfag.
>I know how to construct a head
Show us.
*sigh* I went through Michael Hampton's course about head drawing, there really isnt much to show. Generic robot face to carve. But he ignores features.
the main thing to do is study drawings by the old masters (or whoever else you want really).

and a book recommendation, 'the artist's complete guide to facial expression' by gary faigin. i know there are pdfs of it floating around.

What have you guys achieved in the last 4 years?

yeah sure
nathan fowkes' drawing the portrait in charcoal is a great book

sinix has many tutorials on the subject

vilppu's head drawing courses

loomis' simplification of the head is pretty useful too

and practice a ton, that's the most important part.
your stuff from AP art class is better aesthetically than everything else. the collages are the biggest indicator you stopped caring about improving

How do you make a new one ?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Get this
Maybe use a knife or try sculpting similar sized eraser from your unused larger eraser? I never used those tiny eraser in the back of machine pencils so your problem is strange to me.
kneaded eraser? just jam it in there and it'll dry out a bit a bit relatively hard maybe
you're not supposed to use the tiny eraser on any mech pencil

>that feet

acquire taste, NGMIter.

Sup fags, I had the idea of a group drawing thread where everyone works from a single ref, these shouldn't be studies, more like quick 10-20 minute drawings. The reason being I happened to notice that watching how other artists solve the same problem helps me to figure out certain issues with my drawings. Like that study thread we had a while back where everyone drew an image of a woman from the side holding a glass orb or something, that was fun and had a lot of replies with actual work.

Proposed rules:

>Initial reference image in OP, followed by OP drawing.
>People draw image in OP and help each other out
>Once a certain number of works is reached (10-15), last poster that posts his work from OP sets a new image.
>Rinse and Repeat

Note, the work you upload doesn't have to be the whole image or soemthing, draw what you are having issues with, the torso, the legs etc. Worst case scenario we have a thread that might motivate people do start the days drawing if they're having trouble starting.

Yes, I know we have draw threads, /beg/ and stuff but people don't always reply, but they do post work, here just posting work would be beneficial as everyone would learn something from others images, no write-up needed (although it is welcomed)

What does /ic/ think? I'll post a ref and my work of it, maybe we can get soemthing going?

Gesture is spot on, a bit cartoon-y bu I love it.
Thanks man. Glad /ic/ likes it.
Work on line confidence, looks a little scratchy.
This is great, maybe add some contrast via lineweight, otherwise looks good.

Okay, the technique looks sharp! I wonder how/if You blend (erase). Please.dear Anon, would You be so kind to show us the tools you use?
oh that's nice, seeing it in the thumb i thought it was going to be much worse just because it looks like hb on printer paper.
Well, it is sorta. It's plain printer paper, and started with HB, but continued with 2B, 4B etc. I have a few pages of the good sketchbooks left, so until I get more I practice on plain A4 sheets that I have a ton of.

If I pay an artist say $400. And I pay them $400 solely because they say they can do a image in a couple of days, and that the image itself is time sensitive and needs to be done by certain point. If that artist says it will take them a couple of days and they haven’t finished it three weeks later even though we agreed on a couple of days And now almost a month later they are telling me they’re going to start working on it. Is it perfectly OK for me to ask for a refund? Or do I charge back?

>thinks that anyone has more of a chance making it as an MLG streamer than as an artist
Lmfao, no. That’s just silly. If OP wanted to make money they should go to trade school or study business, hell, maybe even go into stem if all they want to do with their time is make money.
But, if OP was DETERMINED to make money off of gaming, he could try to git gud at something like Overwatch ranked and boost peoples’ ranks up to a certain point. Considering how OW players are willing to shill for fucking cosmetics, a sad fuck in bronze or silver is probably be just as happy to pay someone to boost their rank.
>trade school or study business
OP's plan is to stay home, talk with the least possible people and make huge dosh. Its either vidya streaming or spam top 10 videos.
Dont do fucking art. Theres not a single site in the world that monetizes page views upon viewing your work. dA for example spam the shit out of ads when anyone view your gallery and doesnt pay you jack shit for it. That's how much your arts worth. JACK SHIT.

that's exactly what I'm talking about dude

Like I'll be drawing a mech or something and somebody will be like "wait a second that line weight reminds me of this porn artist, hmm look they used the same sketch background color, same dimensions for their uploads too hmm"

You can only take so much until your spirit breaks, learn to say no OP.
Exactly! It bothers me so much that I would not be able to do livestreams for both, even without talking for the porn one, because habits from my main may carry over to the porn , or the other way around.
Thats why Im not going all in on porn, unless I can develop a completely different and distinct style from the one I use now.
The mech example is a scary thought, and Im paranoid about shit like that, knowing how all knowing internet detectives are.
I like drawing porn and all, but I dont want it to be my legacy. But Im good at digital art, so might as well make it a hobby.
maybe you could use different programs for each.

stupid side note:
in music they call their software a DAW, digital audio workstation. i wish we had a cool term like that for photoshop sai etc. DAS digital artist's studio or something.
I think the solution here for people like us is to just dedicate more time to the SFW shit. Cuz I do enjoy drawing tits but at the same time, it doesn't make me feel as good afterwards. I'll be more proud with the other things, but I just get bored sometimes and want to draw porn stuff. Then I follow a ton of porn artists that are really good and when I see their shit it makes me feel inspired to draw that kind of stuff.

I'm already compromising with my porn stuff though, like it's way more softcore shit now and more emphasis on character design instead of just titties and ass, it satisfies my more artistic side but also satisfies my desire to draw sexy women.

That's not what you should be worried about, crab- kun.

Grab that stylus, become lobster- senpai
Watch the line weight a bit more, thin the lines on stuff that isn't at the front to give it more depth, work more on the inner teeth they look less polished than the rest.
Now go do more, good work
liking your hatching, keep it up
