Does anyone know of any decent art made by artists under the influence of drugs, have drawn their own dreams or had a mental illness? Also, what does /ic/ think of artists that do drugs?
Witkacy, had a whole price list where the price was dependent on what drug he used while drawing.

he also used to write down on his artwork drugs and states that he was influenced by while creating

These aren't masterpieces by any stretch but they are a bit fun to look at.

There are people who got good at learning construction but not a single person who has gotten good through reading loomis books. Can we start banning the word Loomis then? It's not his technique, so stop bringing up his name. You're creating more shit artists. How many years has IC existed, and not a single Loomis meme-fag has ever became successful through following his footsteps. BAN THE FUCKING WORD LOOMIS ALREADY.

What is the best book for learning the go box method?
I meant Gi not go.

How do I draw with scribbles like japs. Is this construction?
Construction is laying down a framework to more easily understand the relationship between objects in your drawing. If you have perfect understanding of a head or body you can just draw it but perfection isn't something a randomly born human can achieve so easily so you'll have to do with a circle, cross and the simple shapes that make up the body to start with.
What's the query here exactly?
It's the usual, sketch before you go for the finish. You achieve that faster by practicing your line confidence.

Has anyone here managed to get good without a natural enthusiasm/enjoyment for drawing? Just by forcing yourself to draw even though you find it a chore like doing homework?

Getting good is its own reward. Why not work and have something to be proud of looking back
Yes. I’ve gotten better even though I dislike drawing.

If I enjoy drawing retarded mspaint shit, and enjoy drawing from photo reference, but don't really enjoy drawing when I don't know what the fuck I'm doing, will I enjoy drawing complex shit when I'm good at it?
I don’t think I enjoy doing anything anymore (maybe watching movies) so I guess I’m fucked

Critique the fuck out me pls
bad contrasts
bad patterns
bad values
seems incomplete or aborted because clueless without passion

maybe try video games or sports.

compare your drawing to this drawing by the very excellent Jeremy Mann. Notice the differences? His drawing has a clearer light source; the darks and lights are organized to make it very clear where the light is coming from, and this helps the from read more clearly. Notice how all his dark areas are connected: this is called shadow welding and helps the piece appear cohesive rather than splotchy. Notice how sparing he is with outlines; forms are described by the light that falls on them rather than hard lines. these are all things you could work on to improve your next study.

<-ignore this loser
chiming in to say that people like you are the reason i still read /ic/

thank you
Watch the Kim Cogan skull painting vid on youtube. Only 2 mins of your life.
Then realise we all need to work a lot harder.

The fact you think to even mention Mexicans is proof you don't have to be Asian to draw anime.
It's not about not being asian it's about being caucasian. I don't care what other people can do I care what I can do and if all my peers can't or don't appear to be able to do something then it's worrying for me. It won't stop me from trying of course but it's nice to have.
Are you retarded? The spics are the worst at drawing anime.
There's like one or two I've seen that have come close so I felt like mentioning it. As opposed to the zero white people I've seen. It still looks off though.

Edgy middle school girl style
Makes me think of candy gore, pastel gore, cute gore, etc. Even though it’s not guro I can’t think of a better description.
Gurokawa or menhera
Well it's the subject matter at least, the style I can't name just looks like watercolor
Gurokawa isn't even a widely used tag on pixiv and menhera is a lot broader than just this sort of thing.

Learning both is good, but which one do YOU prefer to use in your drawings?
Any good sources to learn the Riley method from?
after a while you just sort of see the reiley method without having to "use it". It's just a set of relationships between the parts of the face.

to be honest that image is all you need. Do face studies and try to draw those lines overtop the face and take note of what they're supposed to represent. Do this maybe a few times a day when you are studying and it will be difficult to not see it everywhere.
I would also say to check out Watts Head Phase 1.
are you retarded?
you need both, the riley method is literally built on your knowledge of the facial muscles

In terms of paying for private mentoring for drawing and illustration, what is my best option? Is there anyone that you would be excited to be mentored by? What are the general rates for this? Wha do you get from it? Has anyone here done this before?
Sauce please, and to answer your question, I'd rather be taught in a group or learn alone than having being metored one-on-one.
OP that is the single best decision you can possibly make. Let me tell you guys how incredibly good it is to get a personal teacher to get good at anything.

What my teacher knew specifically was how to get me world class at a skill within a few months. And their perspective on improving and the things they valued on knowing to improve were so completely different than anything I ever would have thought of on my own. Which means if I had tried on my own for years I never would have stumbled across the genius perspective they had to get good. That's how good a good teacher is. With a good teacher you feel as if some genius is teaching your the secrets to becoming amazing that nobody knows and the best part is when they explain it, sometimes it seems like common sense. But it's not. You're going to start to realize that the things they teach you and casually explain are not common sense but rather simple genius truths that you probably would have never thought of on your own.

So if you're not getting a private mentor for this or anything in life you want to improve at, you're doing it wrong. When it comes to getting a good teacher, you want to get the most expensive elusive best ones you can. What they teach is always way better than whatever you have to pay for them. Remember that.

yeah, this one really caught my eye because I want to be able to draw magnificent asses

this guy is pretty right =

but, before you take this step, you should probably see if you even like oils first... i.e. buy 1 average size oil brush, a black and a titanium white, a turp, and a few canvasses/canvas panels or some painting surface

just do b/w studies and see if u actually like the paint, bc oil isnt for everyone, and can be expensive
