do you even want to interact with other artists, or do you just want to keep it all online? guess it refers to people in general.

doubt I would feel comfortable at a con or something
26 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
It's way more comfortable to interact with artists in person. The only exception I've found to this is finding friends on iscribble, which doesn't exist anymore. Though you can make friends at alternatives like anondraw. /ic/ is the last place I'd look for wanting to interact.

The vast majority of my interactions on here are garbage because it's 4chan and full of children who just want to take out their aggression on others anonymously and it has very little to do with anything constructive, real friendship is practically out of the question.

but since I'm here anyway I'm obviously a loner and more likely than not mentally ill. Despite that, my advice is actually pretty solid I think.
This is an experience I've had too but moreso with say watercolor classes. Figure drawing sessions, mmm, in a college you might be allowed to pay to sit in on a class, there you'll meet serious artists for sure. Second years and onward they are not only serious but decently good at least in my limited experience. There is possibly some really good serious artists doing life drawing sessions outside of the college setting, I'm sure there are, how to find them, not as sure. But yah, nice post and I back up with you >>3771174
said as something worth reading.
*back up WHAT you said, typo
Art friends can be nice, but I’d suggest making sure that your relationship isn’t based 100% around art. Most of the friends I have irl that are artists are ones I became friends with outside of art, I feel like if you put art first it’s harder for the friendship to progress (at least from my experience). Art tends to be a very personal thing, so it’s nice to know the person first.
Ps: I’ve only ever been 3 very small cons, and each time I’ve felt pretty uncomfortable so take what I say with a grain of salt. Most of the people I tend to see there aren’t ones I’d be friends with. Unless you’re into some guy in a Naruto costume who smells like expired McD lecturing you about how Swiord Art Online is amazing then maybe stick to people in your school art class or local artist collectives.
Most have been very short and don't really go anywhere, just exchanging "I like your stuff!" Few have become more than that and it has been good. A lot of artists tend to be dramatic which is weird to me.

Fair enough.

Seconding Carder's channel. His approach isn't the only one, but it's a great way to get started with a small palette. Really demystified basic color mixing for me.

There is a lot of misinformation about oil painting out there.
Really love watercolor, but I also want to try oils.
There are a lot of other options for mediums and solvents. I’m liking oleo gel and gambsol rn. Caveat for linseed oil, it heats up as it oxidizes so it can cause soaked rags to spontaneously combust.

How do I draw like this?

Chances are good if someone is professional mangaka tier they'd be too tired to prove it to every single person who asked on /ic/. It would never end. I know that I would believe good advice if I read it, even without having to see that persons art. I wouldn't need to doubt it if I understood what they were talking about. And to be honest, even if they were a terrible artist or not an artist at all, if the advice sounded good/right, and made sense to me, I'd still listen to it. I can use non-artists to point out things that don't look right. It might be harder to figure out how to fix what they're saying, or to translate what they say into practical fixes/steps but it's still valuable. But hey, that's me.
>Chances are good if someone is professional mangaka tier they'd be too tired to prove it to every single person who asked on /ic/.
Yes, but pro mangaka can also do rought sketches very fast, yet you can feel their level throgh those sketches. So it doesn't take that much time. I mean hell, 15 mn might be enough to prove stuff
Come on, let's be honest here. I'm 100% sure that a rough sketch from a pro would still get crapped on by someone on /ic/. I can't imagine it going any other way. I've never seen anyone on here, EVER say, 'oh, I was wrong you really are good' even when the person actually was.

If that ever happened it would blow my mind. Be honest, do you expect that on here? I don't. I don't think anyone who has been on here for longer than a day would.
Also, 15 minutes might not be a long time to you, but uploading every single time you speak? I call bull. Good advice is good advice. The artist will know if the advice is good or not. It's none of anyone else's business. They're just bossing people around and butting in on a conversation they weren't a part of.
I see that not a single faggot on /ic/ can help with this because most of them can’t be bothered to draw anything that’s not perfectly still and balanced, so until one shows up that actually can I’ll give it a try.

If you want to draw movement then learning about how to animate is very helpful, it teaches you about how to portray movement which you can use even in still drawings.

A very useful book to learn about this is the Animators Survival Kit. Go read it. It will help.

Probably one of the most important things is line of action. You might already have learnt about it in gesture drawings but you can also use the line of action to convey not just the feeling of a pose but also movement. You can manipulate the line of action to exaggerate movement, make it feel stiff or loose and so on.
Also important is balance. You need to know how a motion affects the characters balance, how a character loses or regains balance when they run, fall, jump, etc.. Running for example is a series of controlled falls, you need to understand is as such to properly convey the movement.

There’s still a lot more like Keyposes and smears, but that’s most of my limited knowledge. I’m not really good at explaining this, so it’s really better for you to go read the book.

Hi /ic/, been busy playing games lately so didn't draw much.
One of the problem you're having is the lack of contrasts.
All you have is on the blue/green side, use samey colors is fine but too much will make it less appealing and bland.
And because of the lack of contrast, it too strong on the eye.
Glad to see you keep grinding anon.

I suppose the 20+ years of drawing lends more credit than getting paid. I'll give you that.

Also, lol at that non-answer. I'm actually disappointed you didn't at least try to justify your absurdist claims.
>I suppose the 20+ years of drawing lends more credit than getting paid. I'll give you that.
and you assume that's a good thing in your case.. phew

hm all was already answered from the start though, any further discussion is just redundancy. You're just looking for a way to not confront yourself, and being buddy buddy with someone like that would just be like lying. But that's just me

I didn't say whether it was good or bad. Just that your assumption that I have no experience was wrong.

>all was already answered from the start though

No. You made a false claim and have still yet to justify it. Even the most base simpleton can see the relation between illustration, comics and graphic design.

None at the moment. I don’t have a lot to say via art, even though politically I’m a very opinionated person. I’ve thought about doing political cartoons once or twice but by the time I’ve sat down to draw, the joke got old and the hate wouldn’t be worth it. I don’t want to be a political cartoonist anyway, why would I want to keep my finger on the pulse of politics just to churn out art that becomes irrelevant as soon as another controversy/gaffe comes up?
I suppose that the story I’m writing has political elements in it? But not terribly explicit. Showing how the Viet Cong and communists in general are murderous bastards would be as explicit as I have planned, but it’s part of my protag’s backstory. I guess there’s a criticism of media and the sensational press too. But nothing too partisan, at least, nothing that SHOULD be partisan.

whataboutism. Why is it that you determine what you think is acceptable behavior for you and your "side" by seeking out crazy examples of what "le other side" does?

Like how exactly do you think cults function? It's ALL about propping up an Other to radicalize and agitate against. Why do you think all of the media you consume is endlessly focused on finding the most irrational, hysterical retards to highlight and circlejerk about?

Like you're being actively targeted by corporations and foreign agencies that have an interest in seeing your life get worse, but hey those corporations and foreign agencies showed you a video of some "creepy chanting" coming from the other side so obviously you should let the fear that is being cultivated in you determine what you support. Do you ever really think critically about WHY you support the people you do, other than out of spite for the villians they make you care about?
>And they think that they’re individualists
Yeah those boogiemen I'm conditioned to reflexively think about and act against are sheep! NPCs!
> that they’re really brave in what they’re doing
Do you think that being scared of libruls and shilling for exxon is something brave people do? How much of the shit you support is because of fear? That chanting is creepy! Muslims are scary! We gotta build a wall to keep out all the scawy mexican rapists!
> Sorry but consensus culture is neither charitable or brave,

All things many of us have struggled with or thought about I'm sure. But there are many worse hobbies. People waste their time doing all sorts of things. Drawing is at least brain-activity. It's not watching tv. Not saying watching tv is necessarily worse but hey. Doing heroine for example is a worse hobby. There are lots of worse hobbies. Just take a breather, and um, I guess try to enjoy the process.

I always found if I'm obsessed with a specific goal, like, 'I must draw as good as God-teir artists or it's all worth nothing' or a worse goal, 'I must make money at my art or it's not worth doing' or 'I must be recognized as good or I'm not enjoying myself' then, all those kind of goals sort of ruin the act of making art.

Keep your goals simple and more direct, is my advice, like, 'I'm gonna try to make something that looks good to me' or if you're really really good at controlling your inner self, 'I'm going to learn to enjoy DOING art, regardless of how it turns out' if you can do that, you've got it made.

"Actively studying" "grinding"

You say 6 years and imply you dedicated yourself to practice and can't draw a face still. What that actually translates is an over exaggeration of your time spent.

Imagine studying anything for 6 years and not even being remotely good at it.

You know what that means? You haven't been learning.
