Try finishing something. If you have a weak spot like hands or feet that prevents you from finishing it, don't start anything new. Overcome it even if it means relying heavily on reference without fully grasping the anatomy or form.
You'll have a much better grasp on when you'll get better if you actually face all the hurdles instead of working on the fundies without clear aim.

So I drew this last night. I have a really long way to go, but I'm forcing myself to draw at least once everyday to keep practicing.
I got a Wacom a few days ago and I'm enjoying it so far, getting used to it.

Now, how do you guys do the borders after sketching? as you can see in this example, my lines are all fucked up. I'm using SAI to draw, before I just took a picture of my pen drawings and used the curve tool to do the borders and digitalizing. Now I'm trying to use the pen instead but it ends up like this.

Hey /ic. I've been drawing black and white lineart for a number of years now and I want to start using some colour but I don't know what style of colouring to practice. It seems like every artist nowadays is a digital painter but it just doesn't hold my interest at all. I mean, I like the way it looks but every time I try to delve into it I just find the whole rendering process tedious. Are there other options or is cg painting the way of the future?

Inktober is for ink. INK. Not pixels.

I've been having shoulder/neck/back pains and it's interfering with how much I can draw. Are there exercises or stretches that can help?

If there's a posture suggestion guide somewhere, that'd be great too.
>>
>>3151708
too much blurring, blurring is generally bad because sharper shadows look better in the grand scheme of the picture, also need to render better, shadows don't seem to even exist in this; I recommend the book Color and Light for the basics, it's indispensable. When you finish inhaling it you should try another run at this same picture and see how much it changes.

Yeah, the painting is what i'm trying to get better at, I've been mostly sketching until now. do you have any advice? I'm mostly having trouble with basics like figuring out a layer structure and whether I should use layer modes for shading and lighting (I probably will, since my favourite professional artists do).

I will do some paint studies tomorrow.

Guys I need some help, I'm currently bookshoping on amazon and I need some good advice on fantasy art books, the awe inspiring, always close to your bedstand kind.

I already got the mtg zendikar book on my cart, it has some breathaking landscapes paintings and beautifully rendered ethereal creatures from the game.

Also the angelarium tarot deck because even though it is not an art book and I'm not planning to use them for divination I love the beautiful surrealistic interpretation of angels that peter mohrbaches has made.

In short I'm looking for the best museum worthy fantasy or surrealistic concept art you could think of
(I'm also buying the animator survival kit book but thats beyond the point.)

Face is really cute but she looks kind of like somebody walked in on her and she's trying to think of what to say. What kind of feeling are you going for in the expression?

As a side note, the back feels a bit flat compared to the rest. It might be the angle.

Oh hey fisher. I like it, but as the other anon said, have an idea and make it resonate through your hands as you draw.
In the sketch the tail was flat with lighter outline but now you increased its contrast, which steals attention away from the actually important area, her back and shoulders.
