Is there any point in making art and trying to make work that will be remembered in art history when civilization is going to be destroyed in the next 50-100 years by climate change? Should I give this all up for some meaningless job that pays enough for me to travel the world before its destroyed?
Hey, I recently read a very interesting article about making art to better represent the future of humanity. Give it a read, maybe it will give you some inspiration: https://www.artstation.com/efflam/blog/BDb4/post-collapse-futurism-phase-i

What sites do you use for gathering art refs?


for women

Lurking around some of the interest boards is one of the best ways to gather reference material. There are some autistic level dumps which usually contain gems. /o/, /a/ /p/ and so on are such places.

Actually kill yourself at your earliest convenience and spare the rear of us.
And no I don't care about the binary in the descriptions and the jumbled text. I'm not putting 10 full lines of binary into a converter because some high school virgin gets a stiffy for ARGs and feux cryptology. If you want me to play along with your phony high-concept bullshit then actually make the videos interesting enough for me to give a shit.

Dafuq is this?
How is Adobe even doing this?

you cant make it if you're not a gaijin anyway
Adobe is obsolete, haven't used PS since CS6 and that didn't stop me from getting a job where I don't use it either despite the office having cloud because inkscape is faster than illustrator.
I don't understand pirating csp. Its 20 bucks if you wait for sale, it's a good program and more money in their pockets puts it one step closer to being better than photoshop. Imagine if csp could do everything ps could do but for a fraction of the price. I honestly want Adobe to burn
Neets are assholes.

When you lose interest in programming then learn art fundamentals for a month then lose interest in that then go back to programming, but you're better at programming.

Is this ASD combined with undiagnosed ADD, or am I just being lazy and ngmi.

/agdg/ one man army represent
I see your point but zomg the whole sketch/draw/ink/colour process is so so boring! There, I got it out of my system.

I think learning programming and art requires a similar stubborn mindset, esp if self taught. Takes a lot of failures before you start getting it right occasionally.
Except that OP will probably fo his computer science related masters at Imperial College, London.
I am an actual autist though.

heres some other gay shit
is it inspired by alien-like things?
So I’ve been trying to work based on different body parts and using their qualities to make new forms, so the first was based on knuckles, the second was based on the Achilles’ tendon and the third was based on armpits and other creases on the body

I recently spent a few hours actively searching for good artists and I found a couple I really liked. Among them maruo suehiro. But I can't put my finger on why I like this. He usually draws people facing straight at the camera. No perspective. Nothing particularly impressive. Composition is all over the place. Tons of pink. I don't know what the deal is with the subject matter. But I find it so appealing. There's nothing he is drawing that I feel I couldn't do myself but the way he does it makes me feel as though he is extremely skilled and could produce something incredibly impressive and technical if he wanted to. What is it about this art that is appealing? Why do I like it? And why is it inarticulable?

Op here, this is what I mean. That jaguar or cheetah or whatever looks like fucking garbage. It seriously looks like it was made by a child. But somehow the picture taken as a whole is interesting. Why
Yes, Hans Bellmer. Japan loves Bellmer. They also have countless doll artists inspired him.
>looks like fucking garbage
You look like garbage. Maruo knows exactly what he is doing. He is just a manga artists and keeps it relatively simple to tell stories.
And everyone looks like peewee Herman. Men and women.

why are guro artists so good at drawing cute bois

Post your older work next to a more recent one -- preferably with similar subjects so they're easier to compare. Include timestamps for each picture!

Rate each other's improvement, give helpful advice. Tell us what you've been working on. Let's see some gains!!


I found a much older drawing for this thread! Although I didn't draw for about 5 of those years... (it was too painful for me after I got kicked out of art school). The new drawing addresses flaws pointed out to me in the last thread >>4003063 >>4003293 >>4003073

I'll probably start studying hands next, ayy (and the male figure, I only did gestures so far).

Technically very nicely rendered. I would go through and scrutinize proportions such as bone width. Also, look at your joints compared to some references. Remember that a structure gives a subject structure. Eventually you're going to pull skin over that skull. Look at general facial proportions and compare your drawing to those.
Thanks Anon! Yeah, I know I know a lot of the proportions are fucked, some things are crooked, etc. I still struggle a lot with just getting my drawings to just match the reference in terms of shape/proportion, sometimes I'll get to the end of doing the initial sketch and I'll just see that everything is totally off. So I'm hoping I can do some grinding where I just focus on that problem and maybe clear it up a bit.
I would put her with all the other ecchi sexy girls if you want to seperate that further by anime style you can do that too that way you'd know it's lewd so it's in the lewd folder but it's not porn so it's not in the porn folder and it's too sexy to be cute so it's not in the cute folder
found an old doodle from 6 years ago that I really liked when I did it and doodled up a new version.

I found this doll in a trash pile outside by the dumpster while I was taking the trash out the other day. I decided to grab it and use it as inspiration to create this piece.

I think I'm going to add strings to a hand to give it a puppeteer feel. I want it to reflect the current day struggles and hold technology has on us.

>imb4 lurk retard
Mostly the former but there's a bit of the latter in a few kinds of threads.
ngmi is /ic/'s kys, kys is also used some times
Replace kys with loomis and ngmi

im not saying that you should never read or that i am against studying fundies and theory

but is spending your time reading 2+ books really necessery? asking for the ones made it

You learn how to draw by doing not reading.
It’s better to spend more time doing studies of the images in a book than it is to read the text. Not saying reading doesn’t help, because it does but that can be done before bed, on a toilet or some other time when you can’t or aren’t focused on drawing.
literally who

and what did they recommend
most art tutorial books are 70% pictures anyway.

I don't know why people hate anime art. What's the alternate then ?

Furry - Objectively bad for mentally disordered people.
Photo-realistic Art - Which is pointless art and relies too much on tracing and referencing photos glorified by NPCs.
Capeshit - The same realistic style over and over again even anime has more style. Even their stories are recycled garbage.
Video game art - I guess this one isn't bad as It has a variety of styles.
Anime is the best as it uses both imagination and technical skill.

American Ad companies.
They avoid anything even remotely resembling porn because there's a whole slew of investors who'll pull out at the whiff of it.
So any medium reliant on ads like the news media, magazines etc follow suit.
If your a American porn artist, kiss it goodbye mate.
just use a different acc for your porn work
You still have to deal with your spouse, children, and community provided you have/are a part of one.

Come to think of it, how many of then are actually married or in serious relationships?

How fucked are we?

Anime copyfags and medicore skilled fags in general are fucked

For artworld and artists, coming of AI will be renaissance
was curious of how tech like this could be applied to doing things that are time consuming like hand drawn style animation & sprites
