Who here uses nootropics, microdosed psychedelics and/or fasting for art gains?

Do you mean psychedelic or edible? If psychedelic, it's easier and safer to grow your own unless you live in an area with lots of species of psilocybe and lots of knowledgeable people. It's honestly safer to get in touch with a drug dealer than go picking, lol.

Hmmm, I guess you live in Russia or Ukraine or something?
So are any of you fags gonna post work to see all those great results from being stoned, instead of focusing on work

Ok, eat like shit, sleep poorly, don't exercise, and meme yourself into an early grave with worse art gains to show for it.

Your brain doesn't exist in a fucking vacuum, anon.
>heavy lifting
>heavy cardio
>no addictions, sugar, caffeine, etc
>healthy food
>cold shower
microdosing can be fun but dont do it too regularly, take some breaks.
i prefer real trips though. it can be hard to draw during peak but the comedown is perfect, when eveything is serene.
ive found that im really productive and come up with a lot of great ideas the days after a trip, so for me its worth it just for that boost in energy.

less so than the average man, none-fit people are always inferior

Does anyone have a mega link full of folders of people posing in many different ways and angles? I used to have one bookmarked but my bookmarks all got erased. I liked the specific link I had, so if anyone knows which one it is I remember it was mostly females with 3-4 male folders, each were titled with their names. Many of them had tattoos, at least 2 of the females were pregnant, and one folder was a female posing with a child.

but any link with the same models doing tons of poses is fine.

Love this Pixiv artist. The poses they make are really smooth and nice to the eyes.
>I'd heavily advise you to switch over to Clip studio, Krita or Sai for this
so much this. My linework and brush movement improved 10x after switching to CSP. I'm not going back to photoshop except for a few fancy filters

How do I dispose my old embarrassing sketchbooks /ic/?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Just keep them. It's good for perspective, especially down the line if you feel like you haven't improved.

Otherwise just toss them in the trash, nobody is going to go digging through the fucking garbage so that they can potentially embarrass you.
I throw all my sketches away. They just take up space
Do what my cat did and piss on them

>look back at hundreds of pages
>keep flipping in hopes of having got better

This was a terrible idea.
honestly anon, there is no way you could ever be in a situation where you can't get rid of fucking paper. Putting it in fucking water will do, ripping the pages will do, burning it will do, burying it will do, there's so many ways its ludicrous

Get this
Maybe use a knife or try sculpting similar sized eraser from your unused larger eraser? I never used those tiny eraser in the back of machine pencils so your problem is strange to me.
kneaded eraser? just jam it in there and it'll dry out a bit a bit relatively hard maybe
you're not supposed to use the tiny eraser on any mech pencil

I tried using wix, but when I uploaded my artwork, it reduced the size of the image and it doesn't look as good anymore.

Right now, I'm considering using DeviantArt but I don't know if its a professional thing to do. I plan on making a separate account, solely dedicated to showing only my portfolio pieces, and it won't have anything else maybe except my cv.

You think this is a good idea?
Use this instead. It loads a lot faster, is simpler, and easy.
Don't ever use your deviantart page as a portfolio.

Thoughts on Bruce Timm?

He's an untalented hack who contributed to destroying western animation.
>pin up artist
>comic book artist
>story board artist
>director for animation

Yeah, such a one trick pony. If only he had spent his time more efficiently to learn your vastly superior skillset and maybe instead of having had great success in several different industries, he could also be a NEET on 4chan whose biggest achievement in art was getting 200 likes on instagram.
Is there any actual reasoning behind your contrarian opinion? Because Batman TAS is pretty much universally regarded as one of the strongest examples and a milestone of western TV animation.
i second his request
His art is okay, Harley is annoying and he’s most likely a pedophile.

How does one cut off internet/games/whatever and focus on drawing all the time? I live with people I don't like, I have no friends because they all moved out and the only thing that gives me any sort of dopamine is internet in general. I spend too much time on it for obvious reasons but I want to cut that off and focus on improving so I can work and live the life I want.

In other words: how do you get rid of the only thing that gives you any happiness and focus only on hard work?

Thats the best post work image ive ever seen.
You have to learn to love the feeling of progress.
Once you get addicted to getting better you will be passionately drawing 12hours/day every day and not give a fuck about consuming stupid media content.

When youjust startdoing serious courses from zero you progress very quicly from zero to something (low but more than zero). It is artistic equivalent of MAD GAINS.
Get addicted to the feelig of growing, you gotta feel that each day you get more powerful and bigger(artistically) and get addicted to the artistic lifting to keep the gains going.

Become the art gym rat who only gets off by measuring daily gains.
OBTAINING POWER (artistically) just feels better and more important than playing stupid games and consuming shit.
You replace one vice with another. quit games, delete your game accounts, suspend and delete ur social media or whatever other trash eats up your time. Make your phone BORING, delete social media apps that put your brain on a treadmill you don't need redundant apps on your desktop/phone. Blacklist bullshit sites, i would put 24 blacklists on my websites and it worked wonders, after i did my checkin i would his the blacklist button now guaranteed 24 hours i can't visit them. You need to get into the idea of loving a sparse lifestyle with few distractions. Now replace the void with art.
it's kim jung gi
not op but im only on page 42 of hampton's figure drawing and im already dreaming about "T" intersections, but i still feel like im not drawing enough.

How should I approach learning to draw, if my goal is to start sculpting. Getting good and technical skills with pen and pencil (or tablet) is not my prime interest, I'd just like to develop good fundamentals.
Should I go throught the sticky resources anyway?

Mind you, I'm in my 30s, I'd really rather not spend 5 years training something that would be of little value or have small carry-over to the technical sides of sculpting. Just any insight is very welcomed to me here.

I was reading up on some sources and it was mentioned that I should put emphasise on perspective, compositing and composition and avoid learning sight-see drawing and drawing technically intensive anatomy, since you should practice that with material and not pen and paper.
Does that advice hold any real value?

Can you show a drawing of yours too? Just to compare what kind of technical level should I aim for to be able to craft such sculpting masterpieces.

heres one of my still lifes
idk man I draw for fun and managed to pass a few rigorous life drawing courses
all I do is sculpt now and it feels easier in my opinion to render a body with clay than it does to attempt drawing it. I have no idea why. I would learn basic rendering of humans if that is what you're trying to sculpt.
you can gain it through sculpture lol, it's wayyy easier. try it on your computer. draw a face in mspaint or whatever, then get that program sculptris from the zbrush people (its free) and sculpt a head. then see if you like the drawing or the sculpture better.

If you're trying to learn how to sculpt then get some clay and sculpt. I've known plenty of professional sculptors that can't draw worth a shit as well as plenty of painters that can't sculpt worth a shit. If you want to sculpt then your best bet is to start sculpting. Also watch a lot of sculpting videos. Mark alfrey has some good vids, John Brown has some good vids, and Philippe Faraut has some good vids. I wouldn't stop drawing because your drawing ability can help your sculpture ability and vice versa. Don't waste all your time drawing if you want to sculpt though. Just get some clay, jump in there, and start fucking with it. You're gonna make a lot of shitty sculptures before you get gud but if you keep fucking around with it and researching different methods and proportions and anatomy then you'll get there eventually.

t. professional sculptor
