I like them for gesture drawings but I'd recommend getting the poorfag 8 pack for that because the colors are all really saturated and contrast well.

Anybody working on comics and such? I recently entered into a doujin market (futaket) and I'm working on my first doujinshi.

This is a lot harder than I thought it would be.

To those who are self taught
Do you have a routine when you draw?
Do you schedule your studies?

I am going for Lifedrawing sessions twice a week in the evening and get up every day at 6 - 6:30 am so I can draw for 1 1/2 hours before work

you really got to draw this much hours to improve at all?
>>
>>3175910
NO! Take it from a PRO; all you need BOOZE and ACID. With the powers combined whip out a MASTERPIECE and get validation from ALL your HOMIES. The ratio here is this:
routine stump ciggybutts on your desk while pouring down shots of the cheapes shit you can find. Keep pouring down that shit until you start crying. The schedule is any day of the week you feel the DRIVE.

Now smack dat notebook on your desk, spreading ash all over your keyboard and your shirt, spilling your drink a bit too, that's important!

Next up, write down the shit you're most afraid of, most shamed of. Now try to cover all that up with you shitty little drawings.

That's how I work. It's hard work but it
no wait no it doesnt pay off at all. shit. OH WELL! repeat until picasso spins fidgets in his grave.

Take a look at the picture.
The direction of the muzzle will give you the position of the eyebrows, from there the eyes are located easily.
Notice in green the whiskers area: this part is important, it's what makes the fox "cat-like" rather than "dog-like", it gives them that weird smile. Also, foxes ears are big (artic foxes have small ears like in your pic but they're white). Foxes are tricky because their look is very particular but comes from shapes hidden beneath the fur, so they're hard to get just by looking at a picture.

How do you motivate yourself knowing that there are younger more talented people already further along working harder than you right now?

I keep telling myself age doesn't matter and neuroplasticity is a meme, but it's undeniable at this point that younger people have a huge advantage.

What's the limit on drawing on a layer of someone else's art and making your own edits before it becomes plagiarism?

I've saved a huge HD of manga/anime to trace from for my comic, and it's saving a lot of time rather than constructing the panels myself. But I don't want some autists to accuse me of plagiarism.

if it's recognizable enough to your "reference" that somebody can tell exactly what image you were looking at, and that image happens to be a drawing by another artist, except to be labeled a tracer/plagiarist.

I don't think you understand what tracing is.

I don't think you have reading comprehension.

There's nothing wrong with referencing poses directly via comparison, afterall we do it everyday by transmitting visual data from our eyes to our hands, but you will NEVER become even a halfway decent artist if you don't learn to draw off of your own steam first. When you trace you learn absolutely nothing.

Hi guys. I have a problem with imagination drawing. I can't really do it. I'm pretty good at painting/drawing from life and photos. But I suck at imagination... The only thing I can say I'm good at drawing from imagination it would be faces.
Is there a way to get good at imagination drawing? I heard figure drawing helps, so I'm planning on going in the next year. Anything other than that?
Thanks.

your imagination drawings don't look bad, just like unfinished sketches. Keep drawing and correcting. seek out refs to help give your drawings the final polish.

Frank Riley Method

Try memorise those and use them for structure place all what you know on top.

Basically draw whatever you want in a gesture drawing and then start placing structure with the riley method and then put all what you know on top with details and shading stuffies

I demand everyone on this board stop what they are doing, open paint, and draw my chinchilla.

Consider this a freestyle exercise, there is no wrong submission. All drawings will be saved to my collection.

Thank you.

Particularly, I'm in love with the design the clothing in this style has, so if there's a name for that, it'd help immensely. But I also enjoy the linework, though that's easier to emulate.

I've painted a mock-up of the colors and themes I want for background type shit in the bottom middle as well if anyone has a source for some similar shit that might inspire me.

Also, has anyone here tried contacting industry artists? Do you think doing so could help bring insight as to how to go about learning to emulate their aesthetics?

It's funny because I was thinking about how weebish it is, especially since I have a lot of western art influences as well.

But this shit just kinda fits a particular story/universe I've had on the brain for years.

>Also, has anyone here tried contacting industry artists? Do you think doing so could help bring insight as to how to go about learning to emulate their aesthetics?
Yeah if you know Japanese perhaps
>>
>>3175465
basically, Japanese loves to use gothic style and classical baroque style to their art.

and that they carry over to the character designs and fashion. in that particular case, its the pastel colors the designer is using so you don't really immediately recognize the style they use.

and what do you mean by industry artists?
>>
>>3175559
People who actually make this art, is what I mean.

And yeah, I'm a fan of gothic stuff myself and was considering that it might be modified gothic style.

Thanks for the reply, btw.

I recently got into MS Paint art and would like your honest opinion of what you think. So far I've done 3 pieces and they all have Vaporwave style themes.


Here's my first piece the rest will be in comments in order of creation.

What's bad about the third is that it doesn't have that pixel-y quality the others have on them. It's just hard to get a good texture with the diffusion brush seeing as you can't control it.
