He on his demos literally teaches you how to make a good high Quality pic in little time, look at his livestreams where he finishes a full pic from scratch in less that 3 hours, if You work on furry that kind of quality would mean earn 300+ in that time, thats what I do, I finish 2 pics pero day more or less, 180 USD each, and bussines is good, I literally own a car thanks to papa boomer.

Hi /ic/ I need some advice.
I want to learn to draw realistic eyes but i'm stuck. I tried everything ,from grids ,to 3d models ,to books,anatomy, etc .And i'm still too autistic to figure out where i do wrong with the shape of the eye,[ especially in lineart since that is my main obsession ] I want to learn to give them some form and to stop making them looking flat.
What should i do?

How would you go about stylized eyes? All these kids seem to know how to do it easily but when I attempt to do it I struggle a lot.
>>
Look up a cast of David’s eye. It’s a very popular piece to practice drawing and sculpting, and the fact that it’s matte white/monochrome means you can focus on seeing planes of the things surrounding the eye without interference of colors. The reflection nonsense is least important thing, the way light hits each plane is what will give you the most effect of realism.

I would like the idea of drawing on an iPad a lot if I didn't have to deal with the bs of having to use a cloud to save my files onto a seperate hardrive for backup.
if a website goes down, all of your work can go with it.

no? i just want the option of getting my files off of those things without having to use my data allowance.

You can move files off an ipad by using the usb cable.

Listen, i feel you. I have and android phone so i got an android tablet for drawing years ago. The android art offerings suck. I had a friend who got an ipad/pen and i tried it out. It’s so much better, i eventually broke down and got one too.

Its up to you. I’m a wacom man but when it comes to stand-alone tablets, it’s ipad or stick with pen and paper. Samsung may have cornered the market by going exlcusive on wacom but when there isnt software to match, it’s worthless.

God dammit, it just keeps happening. Still getting next to no interaction with any of my inktober posts...
>>
>>4160449
I did this already and while it gained me 30-40 times the likes, RTs and followers than my usual posts, it also felt really bad because I feel like I'm just leeching off of other people's popularity. And it feels especially bad knowing that my stuff is usually in the single digits when I post.
>>4162057
I'm doing all of this, probably not to the extent that is needed apparently, but I'm always replying to comments in some way and I give people opportunities to send in requests, my twitter only has my art and RTs of art related stuff that fits with my content. I guess I'll just need to stick around for another year or so, maybe it just comes naturally.

I should've specified, no porn allowed. This is more of a friendly community that focuses on linework/ anatomy/ color and rendering/ and critique. I don't think drawing porn should be for beginners and since this is geared for beginners/intermediate we'll stray away from that.

what are the best resources for an introduction to oils? is there an online course that shows the basics? it’s so different from the water soluble mediums i’m used to and so expensive and potentially dangerous that i don’t even know where to start.

i figure if i’m gonna learn to paint seriously, i might as well start with oils.

which do u prefer, oil or acrylic?
>>
>>4167535
I just took an acrylic class, it was hard as fuck.

I just got used to water color, but I’m still horrible.

It’s possible that I may go my entire lifetime without touching oil
>>
>>4167535
>i might as well start with oils.
im now using acrylic.
i like oil, i definitely think its worth trying.
downsides are drying time, learning what colours dry fast and others that dry an eternity later (lamp black). struggling to get all the pigment out of brushes. mediums taking a toll on your wallet. varnishing being necessary to remove stray glarey brushstrokes.
upsides are drying time. and i kinda like the smell of linseed oil.
get a dollar set, the pigment is shit, but you should be able to decide quickly from it if you like oil's other qualities without spending a ton of $$ immediately

Get a limited palette. Start underpainting in raw umber and sienna. Learn to mix colors using primaries red blue yellow, or cyan, magenta, yellow (if you want to go that way). There are some good videos about it on youtube, if you just search. Remember to thin your paints with mediums and gamsol solvents, those are a must. I find oil painting the best medium possible, not that they aren't time-consuming, but they just look so vivid and rich. The downsides for me are cleaning up. Making sure to clean the brushes because it's not as simple as washing them in water and also the mess, get in the habit of wearing nitrile gloves when you work as some of the pigments are toxic. That being said, acrylics are bad for the environment and you aren't supposed to wash them down the drain as they are plastics. You should use solvents and soap and water as well to clean your brushes.

To be honest, I started using watered down acrylics instead of watercolor because they don't get muddy like watercolor and you can layer them, but oils are certainly something I'd like to get back into. I've only painted one half-way decent oil painting ever and it took me over a year. Still you'll love oils implying you have the drawing skills to provide structure behind them.

I don't understand why your trying to explain away the fact that you suck. Go fucking draw instead of making stupid fucking threads. I promise you, if you sit down and draw shit and then take the time to analyze what you did wrong, you will assuredly get better unless your sub 100 IQ. Stop being a baby and actually do work.

St Petersburg, Florence, watts or some other well respected atelier. Don’t know hi but it’s probably safe to assume he studied at st Petersburg. Impossible to reach this lvl without any schooling if you have to resort to online then watts is the best place and most structured to learn. Nma as great as the information is, it’s all over the place and isn’t as useful for beginners.
