Try having only the edges of the skirt go up
You can find all the books on libgen or b-ok .cc
I hate krita rendering options
why? I have no problem with it all. it renders mp4 files and gif files nicely.
none of the skirt parts have an arc to them, especially this one. the skirt should be purely secondary action, so have the skirt follow the twist the girl does and delay that reaction. the actual timing is decent, its just the lack of arcs following that twist is what kills it.

is this the best place for exposure right now if you're an illustrator? i realize twitter is the popular choice but for getting off the ground, newgrounds seems better for getting noticed while trying to build a gallery

Does anybody give a shit if it's not porn?
people still go to newgrounds?
For what market? For corporate illustration type work, Twitter and most if not all social media platforms are a waste of time. Newgrounds to me is glorified fan art, I don't see much credible work being posted there.

The only online forum I know people get hired from - and it's not that common, is the CGSociety forums, but that site has a good mix of amatuer/pro users.

"Exposure" is pointless if it's not in front of the people who actually buy art. The different markets for art are so varied, you have to be pretty focused on who you're trying to connect with, and how - most of the time, art directors and people who buy art above the fan/youtube channel mascot level aren't poking around social media looking for art, they go through portfolios submitted through established submission channels.
This >>3946209
It depends on who your audience is/ what kind of work you do. Are you a professional grade artist wanting to do work for big companies? You'll want to put your portfolio on artstation. Are you a porn artist? Using a combination of newgrounds and deviantart might be the way to go. Doing sfw sub-professional commissions? Use fiverr. I would also say that twitter is pretty much a must since it allows you to communicate with your audience easily and track your following size, whilst using hashtags to jump onto trends (as gross as it seems).

Ultimately, it all depends on what you want to do, how good you are, and how consistently you are able to put out works of art. Have a specific audience in mind, fill a niche, be good at making art in that niche, and you have a good chance of being noticed and gaining a following.

You're in that stage that you just have to struggle through. Maybe ditch this piece and try something else. Whatever the case just keep drawing.

Nice, reminds me of andrew maclean's stuff (Head Lopper). Reads kind of flat though, more dynamic pose/lighting would help with this

You need contrast and definition for lens blur to work well.

I don't know what I'm supposed to be looking at - the values are too close to each other in each plane of space, the hues are the same, and the special effects lighting on the tree is lost in the jumble of competing elements. The composition feels compressed because of the big black void on the right, and everything on the left points the eye outside of the frame.

And, the perspective feels forced and not credible. You have trees just floating in space near the top - what are they standing on?

And, the most annoying thing, is the variance of focus in rendering, you go from detailed rendering, like the tree trunk and window shutters, to the loose, ugly painting style of the bird (also, birds don't fly with their feet like that), and then everything else feels like a rough sketch with no detail. The smoke/fog makes no sense and just adds to the clutter.

I feel more emphasis was on "special effects" typical of the popular chinese artists posted here, and less on quality drawing and painting. I'd prefer to see more of the latter.

And, ditto on the logo. That's just "look at me!", and unnecessary, and distracting, because it's inserting itself into the image the way it's done.

multiply. fill in the shape and control the value by painting in the mask. then control the temperature by painting a value-equivalent tone of opposing temperature in the primary layer.

ITT Peak animation

Third, FLCL or Fooly Cooly. This show is fucking ridiculous with the sheer quality of it's action-y scenes. It oozes style, makes fantastic use of foreshortening and stylization at every turn, and is just super fun to watch. It's a cult classic in the anime world so most of you already know. The recent reboot of it in terms of animation is garbage in comparison.

I just fucking hate how 4chan became so contrarian that it ended up being contrarian about its own damn site sulture and looped back around to just being full blown normalfags. The perspective has been warped by too many years of being on the internet and now it believes shit like christianity, western cartoons, and nerd-hating is counterculture. Fucking ridiculous.
I think people wanted to focus on posting things that not absolutely everyone had already seen before.
All these anime get wanked all the time so it's nice to see some new stuff occasionally.

Can we stop shitposting for a moment and do something interesting? I didn't know about pic related and thought it would be a good idea to start a thread, we post and critique each other in order to improve, remember try to use only a hard brush, and 100 percent opacity. you can also post references.

If anyone enjoys these exercises and can afford it, i would advise getting the 30 dollar a month schoolism subscription and watching all of the nathan fowkes lessons and the craig mullins lessons.

Make sure to watch the assignment feedbacks (up to 25 sometimes!) they give for past classmates as well they often have really good advice that you can also use.

You could probably sceen capture everything you need in a month and then keep it without subscribing or just take really good notes.

i know the ref was composed like this aswel, though try to avoid things hitting a tangent with a corner. its okay to stray from the ref by making subtle adjustments

I don't see any tangents, the line is well above the corner.
I do a version of this with the polygonal lasso. Sticking to 3 to 5 values is great. You can do it on paper with pencil or ink washes too.

>have a small following on instagram

>slowly losing followers due to inactivity

I get a decent amount of likes on my stuff, but I take too long refining things to the point where I'm content enough to post it..
I feel so defeated bros. I have no motivation or urge to do anything really and I don't really know what to do. My life hasn't changed that much to explain my lack of energy, physical and mental. I am already way behind where I should be at my age and I feel like I am getting weaker, this is tough. I know that the answer is to lift, read and improve whatever I want to do to make money and I've been doing that for some time now but I just don't want to do anything anymore. Fuck, getting results like getting laid for the first time or having my first job is still probably years away for me and I already feel like shit.

I guess my vent is that I have no energy to improve at art whatsoever and it ain't getting easier.
I made it a habit of saving both finished art and csp files on my google drive.

ok, so after watching videos about fast skill acquisition, volen ck videos about practice and inspired by /fit/ workouts I decided to just copy and draw noses from photos a 100 times to see what could happen.
Basically like a 10x10 set of any fit workout.

It took me a couple hours, but I am really happy with the progress and I felt very diferent right now towards drawing noses.

Around the 35 rep my understanding change and I can tell I've become intermediate level and stopped being a begginer regarding noses.
At around the 70 rep, I felt I've learned a lot about drawing noses and felt I stopped being intermediate.
At around 90 rep I was basically drawing from imagination even while I was copying photos.

It was a nice exercise and took me an entire day to pull off.
I'm excited to see if I can use this workout for other areas of the body, maybe an eye workout, a mouth workout, a portrait drawing workout.

I'm really happy over the results here.
Maybe some anons could try this kind of /fit/ workout practice session.

my first day practicing, not drawing for fun.
That's fine bro I'm just saying you're not intermediate yet. Keep working though you're going to get those gains. Post in here your progress every day I'd love to see it.

Also go download anatomy for sculptors, it might help you with your noses.
Congrats OP you have learned that practicing anything requires repetition.

But listen to elder god Kim Jung Gi for some more knoweldge:
>"And I emphasize that studying the subject matter while understanding them accurately is more important than just drawing a lot. I ask them to experience as much as they can in life, and in drawing I ask them to understand the subject matter perfectly and practice through repetition. That is why studying anatomy is a must when drawing human figure."

Basically, repetition is not enough without trying to gain knowledge beyond the simple image. Basically, you want to consider the skeleton and muscles beneath the skin as much as what is visible. Perhaps you can do drawings illustrating the bone beneath the nose as well as the cartilage to complete your understanding of why it is shaped like it is.
yeah, I'm happy I found out a way to practice that isn't just lmao draw 8 hours a day, like most of crabs tell you.

>Around the 35 rep my understanding change and I can tell I've become intermediate level and stopped being a begginer regarding noses.

Not to piss on your parade but you didn't learn shit. Try rotating some noses in space at different angles. Try drawing a variety of noses (hook nose, thin nose, wide nose, narrow nose, droopy nose, child like nose, etc), render noses, stylize noses. You're not intermediate--you have a long way to go.
