Why the fuck would you want markings on the paper anyways?
To help weebs roleplay as an anime animator.

No but for real its so you are aware of the edges of the screen. Im sure there are templates online that can be printed off
So how does he know how they bounce? What kind of ref and research would you even do? How would you know it's right and not wrong? Does it even matter because it's just like a bouncing ball anyways? Since it's anime there's probably freedom of expression too?

3d animation is so confusing, but im tryin my best
Downloaded what I could from @konnotato
videos where downloaded manually so I could be missing some

Nope. It doesn’t. It’s pencil and paper, racing against the clock. Not a digital rendering with x amount of time. I did manage to include fingers and toes. The real point is, I’m selling shit, while OP waits for your opinion...

It's just... not right, but if you're planning on doing a study on a candle later then there's really no reason to get critique for now.
Does rules of perspective change at all in regards to scale? Would a bunch of cubes on my desk be drawn the same way as a city of skyscrapers?
really fucking brave to bash beginners
Is there any reason why using the internet for references for books exercises ( in KtD ) as opposed to using real life objects would be a bad thing? Like using an image of a pepper online instead of one on my desk.

why havent you use your art to make a game yet?

Sure, at a certain point you have to take that leap, and then you have to do that many more times before you master it and get a favorable result. From my experience though, you you get nothing out of solving the problems beyond the point where you realize that your building has already collapsed in on itself. When you realize that you have made a fundamental mistake you have to go back and reconstruct everything from the bottom up to account for that problem, not push onward mindlessly hoping against reason that it will disappear somehow.
I'm trying, but I haven't drawn for a year, and digitally for even longer (except simplistic """character design""" shit). I got a simple, tiny project somewhat figured out. Now getting to the art part is where I've been stuck for months because I can't fucking put myself to it. Also I've got this cool original sketch for a character that I've been trying to translate into more expressions, positions, etc. and also digitally, and I just can't do it.
I'd like to collab to try it out and work under directions and constraints, but it's gonna be hard to find, especially if I have to explain all this. Plus I can't do animu shit.
I am, there's an old demo around, It's literally a "clock tower clone".
I'm not saying the name so I don't fuel hype to my dead followers, but the name starts with a W.

It's taking me forever, but it's also true that during this forever I have been learning things and improving my skills. One day I'll have to update that shitty demo with the new cool stuff. Possibly when I'm ready for a comeback.
Making games gave me PTSD. I used to work for a shitty mobile games studio and I had to quit because of how much it drained my soul. I bet it's even more nightmarish working with people over the internet.
I kind of get the idea now, I will try something like that once I get better at coding.

I currently have a intuos draw and a monitor at 2736x1824, 267 PPI. Should I continue to use the tablet or is it better to upgrade to a intuos pro medium?
Ok I got it.
It's fucking night and day.
The paper gimmick is really nice.
I now understand why people go for Wacom.
For years I've thought I'd buy a tablet intuos pro medium (industry standard as far as I knew) to upgrade from my bamboo medium, but now that I'm about to do it I checked on it and realized the active surface is barely a few centimers larger than what I already have. Is there really a point in upgrading ? Are there other things that will be improved other than surface area (that was the only thing that interested me)
depends on the output voltage and amperage of the charger, if it is similar to the original there will be no problem, but if it is higher you run the risk of damaging the battery.
Is there any real difference between the Huion H610 and the H610 Pro other than price?

read the script out, you'll immediatly notice how stilted this is. read any script out loud is a good rule of thumb in general.

also wtf? if humans are the rulers why would goblins ever be allowed to eat human flesh? why is a human ruler if humans are food-tier, that's a far more interesting story

I am a primary school teacher. I have to teach my class how PowerPoint works. I decided to do this with an animated robot. Will the kids (12 yo's) like this robot? If not, what can I improve?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Why the fuck are you asking on 4chan for this? Basically if you teach primary school you don't want to use some stupid kiddy character, they are not kindergarteners. Just go straight to the point.
I appreciate the effort you put into this, man. You must be a good teacher.
But yeah, teens are juust insufferable most of the time
don't do that. just talk to them like they're normal people. they're 12, not 3.
I also work with kids (4-5 year olds), and I'd think that using animated characters is a good idead for *them.* Not 12-13 year olds. Do what >>3181414 and >>3181420 say, go straight to the point; they'll appreciate it better.
You can keep the robot if it’s direct and/or funny. It’s not really insulting to the students imo, as long as you don’t talk down to them.

If anything, maybe push the pupils more inward so it doesn’t have a thousand yard stare.

I'm desperate. I just want to paint cute girls and practice it till I get to where I want to be. But I don't even know where to begin and whenever I try to do studies of pictures of cute girls they come out looking like Frankenstein's bride.

Like I don't get how I'm suppose to do this without just drawing a grid over the ref and trying to get it as accurate as can be.

Even the theory of how to proportion a head or the different techniques to get a head right like loomis and Reilly's technique haven't helped me.

I'm at my ends rope here. I even tried digitally sculpting to try and better imagaine 3d objects in a 2d space and while I get the theory behind it and can visualize it in my head... what comes out isn't at all close to what i have in mind.

Hopefully I can get some feedback. Anything will help. Thanks guys.

You know the deal then: post your work. I want to look for better artists, apparently you are one.
Ron lemen is a good teacher
Oh fuck yeah he is, but
>kek this artist sucks, I can totes do better
>oh yeah? I wanna see, do better
>uhhhhhh here's someone else who does better!
Unless you're Ron Lemen, go die.
Akcho. he also goes by tjdtnals12

Thannks for the relines! makes how obvious I need to improve more. My proportions look so much more unappealing when shown next to these. Also shows how less can be more.

rofl gottem.

No but yeah I heard and seen some of istebrak's stuff and know about her schtick. However I never understood how to start the 14 day challenge. just do the face how I usually do and then get critiqued and start from there?

It always seems like whenever I see others do it they all start sorta from the same starting point and am wondering if there is a first video or something to start with.

Also her channel is unorganized af. using JUST the search on her channel is not helpful at all.
But thanks for the suggestion!
Tjdtnals doesn't seem to update their pixiv or twitter (by that handle) anymore. They have a new FB page under the name "Tjdtnals" though (can't seem to link FB because 4chan's reading it as spam?).
Glad to see some of their older work, though.

Also, keep up the good work, OP. I think that while your initial heads were 'cuter', they also lacked understanding of facial structures and form. Your newer drawings show much handling of proportions and and placement in 3D space.

Like >>3181388 (Grach, is that you? Yo, man) said, refer back to references after doing imaginative work to see your mistakes and ingrain the solution.

There's actually many well documented problems with porn. How much of it is based in intellectual and emotional investment is debatable but there is more than "she isn't hot"

also its relative to male porn, not relative to well written novels.
>As an average guy you'd mostly just be dissatisfied because your gf isn't as hot as your favorite porn star.
now, that's bullshit
Social pressure and conformity also play a big role in it for sure. Competition and sexdrive turn pussyhunting into a competition and if you have a circle of friends who have already gathered experiences with (((relationships))), they're going to go out of their way to drag you to parties and introduce you to girls out of some kind of sense of comradery. I know it's not pretty, but I'd say that being more of a blank slate when it comes to what you expect from relationships is no worse than having your head filled with horrible distorted caricatures of the perfect relationship that no one can ever hope to live up to.
he is absolutely right. makes perfect sense.

and you are being emotional, he's not something you want to hear, that's why you deny it.

For some reason I didn't even hear about thumbnails until two years after I started. It makes so much more sense designing your composition using them instead of fumbling around on a big area

>filling your visual library using refs rather than trying to draw something from imagination that your barely studied
I wish I knew that everyone has to practice to learn how to draw and that its not something people can just do. It never really clicked before I guess because I never had to try hard to do anything for my whole life so I didn't even recognize effort as a thing.
