which of these look like they have mistakes? The horsehead piece looks like it was gone into with the least intention if anything.
What I'm saying is that the drawings themselves are mistakes.

You can prove me wrong by showing me examples of these artists displaying any kind of fundamental knowledge of any kind, because otherwise I'm going to keep assuming that they did not "intend" to create this shit, but that they had to, because they can't make real art.
PS: Overfeild is pretty good
The reason I look for pieces like these at all is because I want to see different techniques/ideas expressed through drawing..I don't care if they can draw photorealistic portraits.. if that's what I felt like looking at i would...The skill of drawing is part of what allows these artists to make these kinds of pieces...skill is not just anatomy and shadows..if you believe that then drawing might as well just be a step on the road to classical painting (which some people do consider it)..I probably draw more than the average artist which is part of why I can recognize some of these techniques as different and interesting.
Fundamentals =/= photorealism. Pls read the sticky

Oh, well fuck.
In my memory that was a thread on /v/, but obviously I'm mistaken.

Anyway, here's some more fake pixelart work.
Used software by a guy called Leddev to smooth out transitions between frames.
I think it might look pretty splatty with some particles added.

Yeah, I thought of the same thing. Head shakey guy.
Thanks a lot for posting these. They were... almost upsetting. And undeniably ugly. But there's stuff to learn about rock bottom in these here pictures. Notes to take about what a bedrock bottom room is made of, should you ever need to draw it.

Because we should not have to make new threads or post in draw threads with our fundamental exercises.
Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make your mom proud.

AVOID asking unrelated questions, there is a question thread for that.

Maybe he meant not the actual contours of the figure but drawing the simplified contours? Not sure, I haven't studied Vilppu yet.

As regards to mapping out the action, I think you're supposed to exaggerate a lot when you start out so that it's more obvious what the figure is doing. You can be more subtle as your skills progress.
Try Figure Drawing Design and Invention - Michael Hampton. Or just read the sticky.
Alrighty I'll give that a try.

You are drawing stick figures. You're not explaining how the sections of the body flows from one to the next. The use of alternating lines is helpful in guiding eyes in a smooth manner.

Proportion is somewhat important in executing a good gesture, and it's obvious you have little knowledge of it. Alongside gesture, read up on your anatomy, it is helpful.

I don't want to end up doing such a tasteless vulgar crap after 5 years/12 hours per day -study. How to protect my future works from a bad taste?

I can't believe how stupid people are on this thread with no experience, no job, and only some sort of idealistic fantasies on how everything works. If a client asks for you to put a giant fucking dick in the middle of the painting for 2,000 extra, would you? Would you think of "taste" or would you think of your financial obligations first?
Because they're getting paid for it, idiot.

Guess that's what I get for frequent surrendering and half-assed commitment in the past.

Took around three hours, is there anything in particular to keep in mind when it comes to efficiency, or is it more a matter of just getting fluent? With that I'd be grateful for overall guidance or critique to start off.
One thing you really want to do when drawing even cartoon-style characters is to not only consider those 3D forms (the breasts do not appear to interact with the arm crossing under them), but also anatomy and proportional relationships (Both arms are just a bit long. With the stage-left arm traversing well past the base of the pelvis and how the stage right arm would be in a similar position were it to be brought to a relaxed position as well). When doing a pose you don't completely understand, try looking at yourself in the mirror and noting any phenomena regarding the placement of your anatomical features. Just remember the old master's axiom: Wrists = Gooch.

Also don't forget other important peripheral artistic principals as well. There are many line tangents in this piece. The clavicle and thumb, the stage-right breast and that outside contour, the cleavage and the forearm etc. Watch out for that kind of thing, make sure any lines you have on close proximity cleanly and clearly overlap each other.
sorry about the word-salad; kind of in a hurry rn, hopefully you know what I'm trying to get at fambo

who drew that op pic?
An artist in this room.
doubt it
He had the name do and did some requests.
But I usually don't post on /ic/ since it is wasted time to post anything on 4chan or reddit. Only my experience with this place.

Good artists are somewhere else to find.

There's always talk and thread about comics but they're usually just about webcomics or self-published material.

Is anyone here trying to break into the mainstream industry instead? Or even working in it?
I just wrapped up an Image pitch with an established writer and am currently doing a short story for a Kickstarter anthology. What bout you guys?

Pic is Neal Adams drawing Deadman

Ehh it depends on what you consider atrocious. You're not gonna start off on great money but can earn upwards of $400+ per page and even more per cover.
But yeah it is a pretty stressful career alright.

I met a writer at a signing (with two BOOM books under his belt) and said I'd love to collab sometime if he was ever interested.
I'm also starting work on another Image pitch with an even more established creator, see how that goes


>Plus landing a job on a real comic publisher is all about networking while most Anons are friendless assholes.
That's... a fair point, desu.

I had aspirations to go mainstream, but now self publishing is looking better and better each time a new comic comes out.
As much as I hate western style superhero comics, this page is pretty fucking neat. Also no, mainstream industry of any kind i kind of repulsive
Mainstream comics is an oxymoron. The comic industry is a dying niche.
