What are the best resources to learn art?

this kind of makes sense, i tried getting into fun with a pencil but the god damn face perspectives killed my vibe and will to draw
Don't read Loomis, is just a waste of time.

teachers (& their books)
>michael hampton
>scott robertson

keeping my recommended lists short because i know too much choice can be overwhelming
Loomis is a waste of time and nobody had ever even heard of him until a few years ago.

So what exactly makes Ruan Jia's rendering so good? It seems to be something complex that I have yet to see something like that in other people's work.

Here's the start of a background for all the anons who thought the black background was uglier than sin. Still wip.

hey I saw your deviant knight somewhere, and I was one of the guys who criticized you above, The critique still stays, you're a decent artist and I think you can learn much more, but work on your ego (even though you might think that everyone is trolling you). You really come off as that typical beg high-nose guy who thinks of everyone else as unworthy peasants, and you yourself might be completely oblivious to it. It will also ensure you a smooth interaction between clients and holding new contacts.

As for your current work, if you'll allow me:

What's immediately apparent from the thumbnail, the posture or rather placement of the figure, is tilted too much forward. The legs are fine, but the torso and head need to go back right (either liquify or cut/paste), this will also improve on the composition.

I've painted quite a lot of armor, remove the black edge at the knight's back, shoulder plate, cape, foot, instead apply fresnel to the far edge of the metal and let it smooth in into the background. Metal is typical that it features the darkest parts right next to highlights, so that pure black edge has nothing to do there, but if you want you can spice up those terminators up a bit.
The metal?guard around his/her neck seems more like skin, try to give a clear distinction between forms, throw in some edges to make it seem layered.
And another thing I'd recommend, and this is really just personal preference, I dislike lifeless colors and the lack of temperature, give it a clear distinction of planes with some warm colors from beneath. cheers
ruan jia is incredibly skilled but his designs are so generic it's painful
After seeing a little more I stand by my assessment. In a year you could definitely produce images right around Ruan's level.
It sounds like you already have a plan but just from an outsider perspective there are 3 things I would like to see you work on.
Your structure is a little wonky. Not much but enough to detract in my opinion. I'd suggest doing a lot of exercises on geometric form and geometric shapes in perspective and different angles.
Study color theory and do exercises with that on simple shapes.
Lastly, your figures are lacking gesture and look stiff. They're not as stiff as I consider Ruan's work to be which is the thing I like more about your work. This is totally subjective on my part but I would really like to see you be able to do the rendering style on lively looking things, so I hope you'll work on gesture even though it's not totally necessary for mimicking Ruan.
Good luck dude, I hope we see great things from you.
Right, you have to wipe the shit from your eyes then look.

This is my first ever color study and I gotta say colors are fucking weird. I didn't use the eyedropper but instead tested color after color against the photo and used the ones that matched, by the end I could get it in the first 4 tries.
color studies aren't the best to do from selfies like this but I do agree that colors are fucking weird

I tried animating the same action to act as a kind of 'redline.' Sometimes seeing how other people would tackle the same movements can help add some context to what you're doing, but mine's is pretty different so I wouldn't necessarily follow it for the drawings/poses, but rather the feeling/timing.

I think the biggest thing that you've got to think about is treating the body as a full unit as opposed to a bunch of limbs stuck together - if the arms are raising, what happens to the shoulders? If the weight is shifting from one foot too another, how does the body compensate? Or something like that. Keep fooling around for now.

I draw from real life and try to replicate it the best I can, so I guess you could say my style is run-of-the-mill realistic. I'm just tired of seeing shittily drawn anime/manga. I decided to give one anime style it a try to see if it's as difficult as some make it look like. Anyway, tell me what i could do better and if I should start on that path if i have potential.

The shoulders are wrong. If you really want to go "realistic" study more anatomy.
This style looks like the anime art thats typically drawn by teenage girls who binge anime desu
as opposed to the shit here drawn by neckbeards who binge moe anime
meh both styles are pretty generic either way, I really don't give much of a shit about anime art, so I was just going off initial thoughts

If a client commissions you to draw something for them, and if they end up liking the end result, do they still have to pay you? Even if they paid half that amount upfront, do they get that money back?

I've had this convo with a couple of artists. One said they would only keep the down payment, while another said the client should pay the full amount because you still put time and effort into the piece. Someone else, who wasn't an artist, felt a client should get a full refund if they feel they didn't get what they paid for.

Thoughts? Opinions?

First you need followers. At least 500 or something on Tumblr.

Then you need to be good enough, that goes without saying. No one commissions shitty artists.

Draw fanart of popular stuff to get attention and more followers.

If you're drawing porn, this is it. If not drawing porn, then you definitely need to have a "unique" art "style". You need to offer something that no one else does exactly like you.

Also, look at other artists' price charts and terms of service and copy the things you want to apply to you. DON'T skip out on terms of service, communication is key in this business.

Also, use PayPal invoices.
That wonder woman looks like she has some huge boobs just out of frame.
Surprisingly, at many stores, they actually do refund food, as long as you give it back to them to throw away
This is how it goes with NEW FREELANCERS (not yet "known" professionals):
>Client pays half up front
>Artist beings work
>Artist sends client updates throughout the work
--At this point if the client is not happy the artist and client should end their relationship. Really, the artist should keep the money but they usually won't because they are so self concious about not making the client happy
>Artist finishes work
>Artist sends client LOW RES FILE (It should be always low res files up to this point
>Client pays FULL AMOUNT
>Artist then sends Full Resolution file.

>don't photobash unlike 999% of artists
>newfags are so easily impressed

hate to break it to ya, but there are tens of thousands of artists out there who have never touched tracing or photobashing at all. Stop sucking this guys dick dawg, you're portraying him like some spirit animal
I don't even think hes impressive. all of his faces look like theyre melting off- lopsided, sloppy perspective. definitely more talented than my ass no question. but I think there are better artists to learn from.
No one is going to be painting traditionally. Do you even realise how much it costs to get the shit to paint traditionally?
of course not
he's probably momatard
Literally unaplicable in digital for there is no actual paint and canvas involved nor is there a program that can replicate it in any significant way.

Blocked in the shadows.
work on the head
her eyes are very uneven, maybe make the iris/pupil rounder on the left eye? it's wider and more ovalish than her right eye so it looks uneven

also yeah this may be your style, but work on simpifying the hair, drawing every strand especially for someone like you who does thick lineart looks very off putting. draw the general shape of the hair rather than each strand

the skirt is very bad, sorry to say. either learn how actual cloth ruffles or simplify it. you're not at the level to draw all those complex wrinkles yet

the right arm is farther in view but you drew it bigger than the left and that's a problem, shrink it a bit

the legs look good, the shape of them is pretty spot on. don't add much more detail

the hat looks good, and it's at the right angle

the dick and balls are also very well drawn and at the accurate angle. i suggest you keep it simple as well and don't add many more details to them
