I think Baki is curious case as ALL muscles are there but exaggerated to the point of not looking real or human. But still it's not a thing to pull off without years of studies on anatomy.

**Don’t aimlessly study the fundamentals or anime. Learn the fundamentals (form, values, color, composition, etc.) through properly copying anime.**

How to study anime/get better at imagination drawing/obtain a style/etc.:
>Find an anime reference you like (an illustration, screenshot, anime figure, 3D model, etc.)
>Find learning material that will help you reconstruct your ref using simpler fundamental elements
>Trace the ref using that construction
>Copy the ref using that construction
>Draw the ref from memory that using construction
>Repeat the process for the same ref multiple times and mix in other refs
>After studying a lot of refs, drawing from your head will become easier

**Focus on Tracing/Copying/Memory drawing the big shapes/values/elements first then later worry about the finer details. Focus on only a portion of a complex ref first then move on to studying the full ref.**

Redoing a few strokes and never drawing more than a fifth of a line segment in one go are different things anon
Maybe explain it instead being an obnoxious smartass
But he literally just did
Read Huston again but this time try to understand what he meant with drawing several strokes.

Im already familiar with Nielson work, the other artist was totally new to me, really good, thank you!
Rule # 1 - Keep it simple stupid.

Just look at the art out there. If you want tutorials, look up some of Krenz's tutorials
Plenty of other tutorials on youtube as well.
What's the project?
Also try to get in contact with the artist for the thief of tales
wonderpark is called the project.

This is a load of shit to remember. I'm not sure i will able to do all of that.
Speaking of which, this made me think. Why do we care about gaining followers exactly? Self validation?
post your follower count
Marketability mostly. Mob mentality is very real and potential clients have subconscious bias towards high followers. In their head followers = quality even if that is not true and a high follower count means you can inflate the shirt out of your prices. A headshot objectively worth $20 could be raise up to $60 just because they are "popular". Gay but thats how it is.
>google +
>instagram has tools that tell you the best time to post based on your own followers
How do you find that? I see people saying you find it through a chart icon on the top right of your profile, but it’s not there on my app(which is fully updated)

Are there any Western porn artists who actually have stable relationships/get married/have kids? It seems most either become trannies (Dieselbrain) or are so emotionally stunted/damaged to ever settle, maintain a relationship, or procreate.

I imagine too much exposure to pornographic would stunt the excitement of the sex life. Not only that, but you be too busy drawing to enjoy your work.
I've also heard to much pornography, mostly sissy stuff though, can lead on to become trans.
End up like shadbase
One helped me out through a difficult time; I do not agree with his cuckoldry. The other speaks very fondly of his SO, but not his wife due to resentment. The third's going through a rebellious period, despite having enough income for a middle class lifestyle.

I have made my decision. They must resolve their situation themselves, and naming names would worsen their situations.

A single image will not destroy your life. But if you built any long term income on it, I'd advise against running for any important office or profession, such as a lawyer or a politician.


There is a reason (((they))) pay large sums to producers to create sissy hypnosis porn. Its why you see it as a common fetish in NoFap circles. This is the intent of harn porn is produced to inflict.

Remember, Tyson, Mayweather, and some.more of the most famous names in combat sporta abstained from release for anywhere from a month to six weeks before a fight.

Lol no no no my friend and you trying to use a food critique is just plain sad. Not even remotely in the same ballpark so please remove you skull out of your butt.
Ignore /ic/ and go to an atelier.
Posts like these make me wonder;
How do people just stay satisfied with pictures of pretty girls/boys that already exist? Do you not eventually want something you haven't seen yet?
Plus, if you're satisfied with exact copies of a picture that already exists, why not stop at the photograph? it's already perfect rendering of what you wanted to see.

I don't know, maybe it's just me (probably not) but I want to make pictures that can never exist
In other words you have no real argument so please remove cock out of your mouth.
>start grinding

No clue what kind of art style or what culture the looks of the turtle brooch originates or draws inspiration from, its a vintage. If anyone has some educated guessed on what culture this depicts that'd be mighty kind of ya.

Is there a future for western animators/production artists?

Industry giants are speaking out because it's getting so bad.

Producers will just send work overseas before they pay their artists overtime. So where does that leave the artists?

i believe 3D is popular to the majority as of late, due to all the muh live action

2D is dying off except animu, i hope so. because back then the animu shit was actually dope. and now all i see are schoolgirls playin dolls and constant steven universe style retards making their fats roles around.

but as a 2D animator. I feel like animating is more niche than anything else in NA. Rarely do I see some good ass animation that doesnt include muh sjw content. All the good animators are slaving away at big corps.

That's why I've been trying to learn illustration instead to go full time freelance.

last thing i think i know that are more than 5 minutes are either college and animation festivals or youtube are the OG flash animators like Oney, Gonzossm, Egoraptor (but even then their works are fragments combined together to make it past what you say

I use toonboom harmony for animating (few company use that). Its a great tool however too complicated. imagine learning MSpaint and transition it to Photoshop
>Oney, Gonzo, Egoraptor

I believe these guys don't even consider themselves as artists.
I don't know about gonzo, but egoraptor and oney both admitted that they started doing videogame parodies just because they were the most popular stuff around that time, rode the bandwagon and got a profit. And when it died off and became less profitable, they quit.
What do you guys think of unions? They seem to have a better rep here in Australia but do you think a solid union could be possible?

I have to admit I’m a neet who finished high school a few years ago so I’m completely lost on all this

The best way to grind is to
1. Base a schedule around the time you can’t draw ( work, sleep, food, etc)
2. Focus on what’s most important to what you want to do.

There isn’t anyone who can make a schedule for you that will work if you’re too lazy to make your own.
oof brutal
This seems doable. t's like what, 3 hours of actual studying a day?
I did. Took off a year and a half to """work on my art""". Did absolutely nothing, sank into the worst depression and anxiety of my life, was lucky to end up back at my old job but it easily could have gone much worse and I could have ended up with nothing.
If you don't have the discipline to give your art 100% when you have a day job, then you won't have the discipline to even give it 50% when you're a NEET and you have no external structure imposed on you. The problem isn't your job or your obligations or anything else. The problem is you.
Good luck Anon.

Why do female artists always mirror themselves?
24 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
The art would actually look more impressive if that thot wasn't standing next to it. The thot just makes me skeptical and realize that this is probably some photo traced bullshit.
jewess art thread?
This whole thread is wondering why female artists always draw themselves, yet there are plenty of examples of male artists doing the same. Where is the evidence that women do it more on average? This is just biased

She doesn’t care about your shitty opinion. Having her stand next to it gives it a sense of scale and you can appreciate that the painting is life size
I'd rather have them draw females because I'm not gay
You're all a bunch of angry incels.
If you'd have a nice body and be cute, you'd take advantage of it too. It's a form of power, so there's no reason not to use it. Plus it doens't last all life for most women so let them have fun.

The question is, why are you wastong your time being angry at someone, cause it's literally a waste of time and energy that does absolutely nothing for your skills and mental sanity.

It's twitter, they care more about "trans rights are human rights!" memes that are annoying rather than people who make original content. I would say just draw a bunch of shitty memes and get yourself out there. You can always use instagram when twitter is having a meltdown over the latest trump tweet. also
