there isn't much here to have thoughts on. what are your thoughts on it?
So, has anyone played with Flash/animate since the recent update. I've been trying it out, and shockingly its starting to feel like real animation software. You can finally apply effects to layers for one, and the drawing tools have been considerably improved. If they keep this up I might actually use this program...

recognition isn't really an emotion, it's more of an action or way of showing emotion. like you can recognize things nostalgically, unhappily, excitedly, etc.

Can't finish anything I start. Worked on this one for over a week now and still can't even complete the sketch. If I get started on a piece, it comes along pretty smoothly, but eventually I just get burnt out trying to fix little things here and there that probably won't even matter in the end anyway.

>>>how old are you
>>>what made you realize you were NGMI
I've not really reached that point yet, but it fluctuates. Right now is definitely a low point, though. My ambitions are high, and I think I can do well if I just apply myself and actually study. I'm just tired all the time. And I have a physically demanding full time ("regular") job, to boot. I do freelance work (cosplay stuff, not drawing) and can make decent money doing that. But my own miserable malaise and faltering discipline has makes it hard to consistently post updates and complete projects. I would love to do freelance full time, but it is a scary thought, to rely on my art for full income. It's possible, though. But I know my lack of discipline and general happiness at this point, would sabotage this. It's frustrating because I could do so much and I have so many ideas. Little time, though. Art is a big drive in my life. It's the only thing that keeps me from medicating my depression with alcohol or drugs. The thought of the fun ideas I've yet to execute or try keeps me from delving too deeply into suicidal urges. If I give up, I have nothing to live for, really. Which is sort of pathetic.

>>>how long have you been drawing
My whole life. Ever since I could hold a pencil. I only really started getting serious/trying to learn fundamentals in 2009, though.
>>>most embarrassing NGMI moment
Just seeing peers and younger people surpass me, to be honest.
>>>most useful thing you learned that you'll probably never be able to put into practice properly
Perspective. I don't think I've learned it at all, though.
>>>bonus question: who are your three favorite artists
Goya, Kentaro miura, Franzetta

I have before in the past, as well, and gotten feedback on the art style, of particular note being the inking, and I've taken steps to rectify that in the next page.
It's just the biggest problem I'm having is I guess finding the motivation to keep going, knowing I'm the only one who cares about it.
Still, if you're willing to give feedback, and help out, I'm always willing to listen.
>know what I want to draw

Is it worth trying and being inevitably disappointed, lads?
You gotta learn to love the process, and to love the act of learning to draw or it will be extremely painful to make any gains. Sorry anon

Last time we did this it was both fun and inspiring, with anons posting progress pictures of their drawings as well as completed sketches, and giving great critique to others in the thread. Start with this picture, and others can be posted as the thread goes on, but let's try and keep focused on one picture and prioritize drawing and giving feedback. Post your work, /ic/.

What are the various paths you can take in drawing to make money?
I like drawing pretty much anything but I'm not sure where to go and I have to settle for something specific so I can work on it.
I'm pretty late and retarded so please bear with me.

So far I thought about :

- concept art (where do you even start? What different types is there besides big studios? Looking for indie game devs or something?)
- IG/Tumblr fanart, maybe porn
- webcomics (I think Webtoons pay some of the authors at some point? Not sure if webcomics could be a viable way to make money and how many people actually read them but I like it)
- graphic design (I don't know shit about this one and I'm not sure it'd be as fun)
- Redbubble and similar (it's either risking copyrghted stuff, or being good enough to make appealing/funny design that people would wear, I don't really know the entry level to make a living out of it)

Anything else?

So it's just not a personal thread, you can also discuss about various ways of making money with drawing., experiences, etc.

I've been drawing as a hobby for a while, but now I'm thinking of trying hard and drawing for real. I'm trying to figure out a way to be able to associate my dedication to drawing real with drawing porn, to try to have some quick financial return. Is it worth it?

>implying anime has anything to do with furry

I don't mind porn, but I do mind the audience, in particular the western one. Know that you will be satisfying a compulsive need, not an appreciation of art. This attitude means that hackery, plagiarism, fad/meme chasing, and cultish personalities are blatantly rewarded. You will primarily be in the company of artistically incestuous frauds who regurgitate the mountain of 2D porn coming in from Japan, and "3D artists" recycling game assets and syncing them to amateur porn footage.

Two things will likely happen, either you become disillusioned with art, or you lower your standards and become absorbed by them. If you're okay with either outcome, go for it.
Literally the only reason I want to learn how to draw is to make porn. Not to earn money from it, just as a hobby.

That anon here, the pay is terrible. It's all about time spent. Anyone making decent money is either a big name or in a fetish ghetto you wouldn't understand. Good artists go unnoticed and staples of the industry reign.

This anon gets it.
