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.

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.

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
>>
>>3771942
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.
>>
>>3771942
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.

If you're looking for a place to post your cartooning then you've found the right general.

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.

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,
But you support the party in power. You support the people that control everything.
>your political stance is free and comes at no social or personal cost.

"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.

When and how can I tell that I'm a NGMI loser?

I'm 28, therefore, I feel pressure to drop anything that I won't be able to succeed and find a job in.

I did draw "a bit" when younger, enough to know about perspective and drawing what I see rather than what I know. Now I'm attending classes for adults since 4 months. I learned LOADS starting with pencil handling, colors, started loving painting and few other things. I still hit occasional walls but I understand drawing books way better than when I was 18. Yet, I'm not producing anything remotely good. It's better than the old stuff, but also, I draw completely differently now.

Should I give up and look for another skill to learn (I got few hobbies I always wanted to turn into real skills, but these are equally talent and time demanding).

I’m gonna be brutally honest, anon: fuck the people telling you not to give up. You’re 28, nearing 30, and it seems you don’t have anything good to show for it.

If you really want to keep doing art, then put it aside as a hobby. Focus on getting a career or, at least, an actual trade. Art can wait.

Besides, 90% of artists (me included) are never gonna make it. You don’t need luck or talent to make “it” but you definitely need luck or talent to make a living doing art.

It's the opposite though.
Making a living doing art is a just a matter of business. Unless you have an extremely idealistic, inflexible, narrow and naive vision of how to monetize your art, it's an entirely feasible and pragmatic pursuit.
Truly "making it" in the artistic sense on other hand, is a different story.

Why are westerners so bad at drawing anime? It seems like anyone can recreate western art but when it's the other way, it's just awful. Is it because all the best resources are in Japanese and only weebs learn japanese? It doesn't seem that hard because only the eyes are exaggerated and there's usually less details, yet everyone sucks at it.
