I tend to exclude him given is exaggerated anatomy. He also couldn't draw/paint women well, and the Sistine Chapel looks really weird up close due to the illusionistic elements used to compensate for the vaulted ceiling. He's a master to be sure, but not somebody that I'd recommend for what I can only assume is a first master copy.
I usually do, just sometimes it helps a lot to ask what to search for. I've never tried a master study before and want to try it for mmrgl's challenge.

Yeah, I was expecting something close to the capital.

>Tfw you see girls with "Tokio Ghoul" T-shirts every fucking day on the street.
Well 3rd world countries are usually a decade or two behind, right? So of course anime is hot right now. I bet you guys love Michael Jackson.
But I like drawing waifus, faggot.
Funny you say it. I really got into smooth criminal a few days ago.
No, most of the people who draw the popular and trendy shit just have popular and trendy taste. So while their art might be decent, it's almost guaranteed that they are as obnoxious as the fans they attract. Even when they try to pretend they aren't on the surface. My only beef with fan-art is that it gives fan-artists a false sense of accomplishment, bloating their egos, since they are using someone else's IP and creativity to get them any attention. So they end up thinking they deserve more respect than they really do as creatives.

Most anime are literally marketed toward teenagers, not kids. And just about all the millennials who got into anime did when they were in their teenage years. So it's just anime appealing to the target audience it's suppose to. I don't know how anyone over the age of 25+ can be into the garbage japan still shits out on the regular though unless you're talking about the more mature shows that get released periodically.

I recently reinstalled photoshop and I think I'm forgetting something.
I used to use flow a lot, but now when I try the setting does nothing. Pic related, same brush at 100 and 20% flow, no difference whatseover.
How do i train my eye to be so god tier, that it can find the flaws in my work as easily as it finds the flaws in other people's work?

Self critique is best critique or so they say/

Seriously that's all their is to it. You need to sit down, stare at your (or someone else's) work, and identify flaws. If you need some more specific advice I'd say try and put the flaws you find into words, just going "this looks off" and not actually diagnosing the problem is less helpful. You can also practice by critiquing others.
Obviously this requires knowledge, it's harder to spot an anatomical flaw (besides really obvious ones) without knowing anatomy.
Most basic way to do so is just rest. Leave your drawing and do something else, come back later after lets say 5 mins. Point being while drawing, you get too used to it and miss mistakes. If you are working in digital art, flip your drawing horizontally, works with the same concept, your brain will think of it as a new shape instead of the previously one that you got used to, giving you new criteria.
i might be wrong but i'm pretty sure flow only works on texture brushes

Does drawing make you more attractive to girls?

I've noticed as soon as people find out I draw and see my amateur shit, they think I have so much talent and immediately place me higher on the social value ladder. Even if I personally think my work is shit (that's what browsing /ic/ has done to me, probably for the better so that I continue to improve)

Money is not so important. It's sufficient that you can support yourself and have some extra. The vast majority of the population falls in this category.

t. richfag
(Remember Elliot Rodger?)

It's all about the face and height. I even have the face, the money, but I'm a manlet. I also have a lisp which ruins chances. Many people forget how important voice is. Having top pronunciation and a deep voice helps.

Women are like children: they want to have fun and want to experience exciting things. Having a gf is hard enough but keeping her is a full time job, especially if you are an introvert who prefers to do things at home.

If men were rational they wouldn't bother with girlfriends. But we need it. We are programmed to need it. I feel it every day. It's hard to opt out, so we continue trying. It's 9 months after my last breakup now and I chatted up close to 60 girls and went to 4 dates. It's a battlefield out there. Guess I'd have better chances if I had a large social circle. I notice that girls rarely are single. Either they have a backup in case their bf leaves them or they are looking for a replacement because they plan to leave their bf. A shrewd gf (and they are all shrewd) will have a small window where they aren't taken. Women also don't seem to feel the need to have a partner. They are happy to be alone and life the lifestyle that the Cosmopolitan recommends: strong, single and career-minded.

We have to lift harder, git good at drawing, advance our career, read more books, cultivate more passions, dress better and study conversation techniques every day until your shitty personality is finally overcome with that of the NEW CONSUMERIST MAN. The consummate accessoire for the ladies.
they just wanna be your friend because in the future when they get a shitty idea for a comic/band/youtubegamingchannelthatwillgetamaximumof12subscribers, they will want you to spend your free time making all of the art they want/need.

Just go ahead and tell them all to fuck off now.
Seems the opposite to me. Women can't stand to be alone and need to be in relationship at all times. While I've decided they're pretty much not worth the effort. I can just jerk off from time to time and not have to put up with them. It's hilarious when women post shit on facebook about things men need to start doing to keep a woman. Bitch please, what do YOU have to offer ME? Pretty much nothing but a warm moist hole. Meh.

Post traditional work.
check out the sticky, it gets tossed around a lot for good reason. You're a beginner so you're gonna wanna start from "Key to Drawing" (the sticky recommends drawing on the right side but I prefer this) and from there you can move on to fun with a pencil by Andrew Loomis (don't try to mimic his style, just try to learn what construction is). Again, check out the sticky, there's tons of resources there and you'll probably find what you're looking for.

I watched the behind the scenes movies for companies like blizzard and other animation studios, and that pursuit of creating stories and worlds was too enticing to just say "That's nice."

Vocaloid and curiosity.

I wanted to do a whole vocaloid song on my own, not only learn what was necessary to compose the instrumentals, I wanted to learn drawing to make the illustration for the video and learn Japanese for the lyrics. Of all these 3, composing music was and still is the hardest to me (After 5 years of learning Japanese, 3.5 of drawing and 2 of composing music I only have like 4 proper finished songs )

Fortunately drawing really ...really got into me, I've been drawing every day since I started back in 2012/2013. Now I want to change careers and become an illustrator some day.

It doesn't censor anything you fool. This book is for aspiring mangaka and as a result it teaches you how to draw genitalia in the correct Japanese style. Obviously a pleb like you wouldn't understand.

>you should never use symbol drawing
>except always, when you do something like the reilly method
What the fuck am I reading
how are the musclegirls going

either grow up and analyze what you're reading to understand or drop it

pick up a method of construction
Draw them lower to the ground unless they are slaving.
Draw what you see instead of what you think you see.

For instance, if you look at the eyelashes. You drew them as individual strands. But on the photo, the eyelashes don't actually appear that way. There is just a shade of black with tuffs of hair appear at the very tips.

Your mouth is also very different from the photo's. If you notice her upper lip is more horizontally angled while yours are more raised. Also, the teeth gaps are different and her bottom teeth are not shown.

I'd say most of the problems can be solved by just trying to be more accurate with your angles and lines. Follow the curves of the photo more rather than reinterpreting them.
This is very cool! I'm not the drawer the thanks for this. This is extremely helpful.

I was having a lot of trouble drawing faces lately because I was spending so much time filling in every little detail. But your paint over reminded me that it's all about blocking in the shapes and shades.

This thread is meant for artists who might want to try to make anime works in-between their studies. It is strongly recommended that you use this thread in conjunction with learning the elements and fundamentals of art. You can also discuss the visual elements of various professional artists as well if you keep it relatively articulate and civil.

Submit your drawings, receive feedback or critique others! Share your knowledge and remember to thank those who've critiqued or red-lined your drawings. Most importantly, do you know the mahou kotobas that turn it all upside down?

Magritte, because while other artist's works were based on the confusing ideas and imageries dreams can contain, Magritte's works were about the clarity and insight they can provide. His works are so singular, clear, straightforward, I never get tired of the ideas he shows.
