That's so dumb. I think as an artist you should be able to draw anything you want, in the way you want. As a female artist, I love, love drawing dudes with mma-like bodybuild and loomis-tier pretty faces and if someone told me to stop drawing this subject, it would probably destroy my joy for art. The reason why I keep grinding and work hard is because I want my guys to be as hot as possible.That's one of the things that motivates me the most. And yes, I'll always click on pictures of hot dudes and I'll check on others artists who draw hot dudes. Nothing will ever stop me from doing it, I simply can't help it, I guess it's instict.

Every single time I see this argument I can't help but think it's an insecure girl (or woman with girl mentality) posting. Not someone who cares for "the cause". And every single other women (who is also a decent human being) I know in real life don't give a shit about sexualization. Feminists sometimes makes me ashamed of admitting I'm female on internet.
"Dear men. Don't draw"
I'd bet like 90% of males who draw learned to do so because they wanna draw pretty girls. The other autistic 10% probably masturbate to gundam figures and hot wheels cars.
Link to this Facebook post please. I feel like starting shit with an idiot feminist. Will post pics for laughs.

Guess who just got a 6k illustration gig.

That's right, yours truly. About 5 years I posted on here for the first time and posted my first drawing soon after anticipating all the praise and compliments. And was torn to shit. It's been a long road since then. Thanks for being such cunts /ic/, it's the tough love that aspiring artists need. 2018 is going to be the first year in which I don't just pay the bills and get by, but actually earn something resembling a professional salary. For a first-worlder.

Love you dicks

I think it just gets easier with time and practice. I fall into a lot of meme techniques myself, like overhighlighting.
The bottom line is that you need to understand form, light, and be able to see things as the 3d objects they are. That only comes with time, practice, experience, and observation.

To practice, do value studies. Pick 3 shades of gray (almost black, medium, and light, but no whites except for really strong highlights), cover your subject with the middle one, then squint at the reference (to remove the details) and start adding in the shadows. Once you're done with that add the highlights.

I'd suggest doing A BUNCH of these, without doing much rendering (i.e no blending, or very basic blending). Do them quickly, be messy, just focus on understanding how the light affects those shaoes and don't worry about the small details.

Then you can start getting more refined with it, by blending the colors more and adding little details.

It takes time, but as with everything related to art the more you do it the better you'll become at it.
Thanks guys, are lead 4 pencils good for shading?

I don't think I have the right software for that. My computer can't really run it anyway, I've tried. Oh well, I don't really need it for the thing I wanted to do it just would've been a nice embellishment.

it is probably spine, but you can also achieve similar results with after effects.

I made this animation with a morph tool in after effects. someone else drew the character and later on in production it was decided that he also should be animated.
because the whole character was merged on one layer, I had to cut out all the different parts, parent them with the head and morph them separately. it's the best I could do in a short amount of time, but you can achieve some nice looking pseudo-3d effects.

I'm starting to question my goal. I'm improving and I'm very happy about it. I thought I wanted to do comics, maybe work for marvel/dc. Then I noticed how garbage western comic industry right now. There's no way for me to work on manga industry. I got some stories of my own but I think it's garbage too. Should I search another field in art? Like fine art, etc. The only thing I don't want to do is concept art.
I checked all of those it still isn't making any marks on the canvas.
I have restarted GIMP and it still isn't working.
For traditional painting specifically oils and for landscapes and architecture, is it better to learn by studies of famous paintings rather than learn the technical details of drawing of, let's say, trees or hills? Currently I'm starting with studies as I think it's a good way to get my muscle memory in place before I start studying colour theory but I have my doubts. Any oil painters want to share their path from beginner upwards?

That's true, seems like an awful lot of trouble just to try and get away with an internet dick fight though.
But I agree. If the weird woman hater shows up again I'm just gonna ignore him from now on, and advise everybody do the same.
Holy fucking shit, stop feeding the troll(s).

In 8 months I'll start going to an art Academy and I'll get free money just for attending the classes. I'm allowed to customise my lessons however I want, meaning I can create whatever theme or style I wish for and the teachers have to help me improve whatever I ask them to help me on. How can I use this opportunity to the best? Any specific things I should focus on when studying these next 3 years in the Academy? Anatomy is surely one of the things I'll ask them to teach me, but anything else worth studying that's specific ?

demand they take you to the zoo a lot

i'd try out a bunch of mediums to figure out a fav. one of my student friends does beatrix potter style animal paintings in watercolours and her instagram has a ton of followers and she sells pieces sometimes. who knows, there might be a job where you can just draw animals. ask your tutors, if there's anything you want to squeeze out of them, it's stuff about how to network and get jobs and etc.
3d is probably a better avenue than animation tho. seems like more jobs at least to me

T. Lithfag that steals random shit. If your bike gets jew'd anytime soon, it's likely one of my people.

Jk, I'm not one of those rednecks. The only reason I moved to Denmark was for my dane bf...and the better pay, honestly. Also, better art schools than what lith had to offer, better society too. Just sad to see how there's antifa fags and Muslims literally in every city. Hope Denmark becomes 100% white again someday.

Hi all !
I share to you my second work. It's an ink& pencil drawing, 1 month of work.
80x110 cm.
2 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Clouds do not look good at all - they're weirdly jaggy, poorly lit and overly detailed. Composition is extremely sparse and an absolute bore to look at. This was not worth putting '1 month of work' into.
Why did you make 2 seperate threads for this? This isn't how you use this website
Epic treatment of space. Better pursued as a painting, head in that direction.
It's nice and all, but the clouds have this weird texture to them.
Almost like looking at one of those tonemapped/"HDR" photos, where across the whole image there's no change in contrast and tone. Maybe it's gonna look a little less weird if the clouds towards the border of the image have less of that harsh lighting.
OP don't listen to this guy. Yeah clouds could be fluffier but it's a great piece overall. Next time post in the draw thread tho

I don't think he traced it at all, it wouldn't look half as good if he did. I do however think he used that exact image, everything down to the fingers match
this. OPlet btfo, still bound to never make it like the rest of us
this image is a terrible example of his grasp of perspective though. The figure in the front stands on a completely different ground plane, not following the same perspective as the background at all.
>artists use references
welcome to 1600
all this doesn't really matter if the end result looks good.
only nitpicky artists that have no idea what it actually means to draw for a living will care about stuff like this.
