What are some things /ic/ (or any other art community) told you to study only to be completely wrong?

draw whst you love while also practicing fundies. its not that hard duh
This. I've seen many artists even in other countries say that they're in debt. Most of them can't even afford to live on their own and have to share an apartment if they want to pay the installments
That's a good thing
Yeah, it's a precautionary tale for any student. Gotta hit them with reality that you don't go straight to making tv shows/ work on comics or movies right after you graduate.
If i recall correctly Urasawa make a big deal of a mangaka that "discovered" just drawing the nostrils of the nose to increase the appeal of the girls. A lot copied that.

Is it worth the money? I use krita to draw my animus but I always see japs using CSP. Is it worth the $50 or whatever? I would LIKE to see for myself in a free trial, but I downloaded it a long time ago and forgot about it, letting the trial expire.

Any of you use CSP, would you say it's worth it compared to Krita?

Pro version has usable models as well, and they work fairly well
50 bucks is fucking change. of course it's worth that. it's worth much much more than that.
Ex has no time restrictions for animations, the filter that convert 3d and photos to line-art and screen tones, multi-page management for comics, and other little things. Nothing really necessary.
CSP has really good paneling tools for layouting manga pages.
>Ex has no time restrictions for animations
Seems pretty necessary to me.

How can you stop caring about reaching a goal thinking it's the key to happiness and instead enjoy the process?
2 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
It's really hard OP. Those who have made it really enjoy drawing. They didn't have Twitter idols or patreon back in the day. That's why there mentality isn't clouded with shallow goals like fame and fortune. Kids these days see only the money and fanbase, but they don't really care much for the hard work. They tend to start art with the "I'm gonna get a lot of fans and money if I get good at art" Kinda mentality without really liking art. So when they draw something and its not on par of what they have in there mind they get more depressed and demotivated than normal people who like drawing.

While people who like to draw are happy just simply drawing. They may feel bad when the drawing comes out like shit but it doesn't matter to them because all they want to do is draw.
Have some enjoyable pursuits outside of art and drawing. Have a social circle, and a source of income that isn’t related to art and drawing.

implying artist from other ages weren't motivated by money and recognition. The desire for not being forgotten and lust for wealth has always been around anon, artists aren't an exception.
actual answer is don’t seek art as a career treat it as a passion and a hobby. Do your 9-5 then go home and enjoy your art progression

what are some good artistic pens
Pic related is pretty good for Dynamic sketching kind of practice or just drawing on the go, the manufacturing quality and jap design make it just a pleasure to work with. Shame they don't have thinner nibs.

Also Noodler's Creaper is a very good fountain pen. Vilppu uses it in his nma demos and the low price is good at taking the pressure of using it away.

Shit's expensive, so naturally I have some concerns -
doesn't the thick barel feel awkwards af? Do you really have to hold it perpendicular to paper? Sounds utterly retarded tbqh
>doesn't the thick barel feel awkwards af?
No, it's actually just a little bit thicker than any regular pen. It probably looks to thicc on pictures because it's short.

>Do you really have to hold it perpendicular to paper?
Nope, from what I've heard that was rapidographs' problem.
My 0.18 isograph works at acute angles just fine.
G-Pens and Sakura Microns are all you need.
I'm quite fond of the Pentel Slicci .

Hella fine lines, hardly ever clogs, and last a hellova long time.

Just what exactly ARE the secrets the pros don't want you to know here?
74 replies and 15 images omitted. Click here to view.
>In what for decades?
In being an artist.
> You're saying you've been trying for at least 20 years and you still haven't figured out how to make it work?
I did figure it out, in a way.

>What are you even try to say here?
>a) becoming popular in social media and growing a fanbase

>How would you know, if you are a self-admitted failure

Secrets to making art (as in the technique) and secrets to MAKING IT in art (as in, the business side of things) are two different things.

I think the retarded person here is you, with zero reading comprehension.
You fucking autists, the anime threads get deleted because the alternative art/stylization thread already exists
It's not a "secret hidden in plain sight." You just think it's been somehow hidden because you've been deluded so long
Actually no, they want diversity, even in style. Why do you think Craig Mullins is one of the most booked illustrators in the industry? He's constantly changing shit up, and in many pieces it's like "phew.. no idea Mullins did this", and this is exactly the key effect your clients want. Adaptability is all. If you've done some touhou shit the week before, your client doesn't want stylistic remnants or subtle hints from that in his gritty new action game illustrations.

>I make my entire income off of freelance illustration). I don't work in fantasy / sci-fi illustration, but more branding, advertising, editorial, etc.

You're not a professional illustrator. You're a graphic designer. Better fix your title on your sites and profiles, people might get confused.

Do none of you realize how uncanny and overly constructed most of the drawings in these books are? If you've just started drawing (and you have, if you see anything in these books) then I'd recommend something you can actually fucking read: L O O M I S

Because I tell you, if you want to know "how to draw anime (thread #203)" these books are not going to be the guide to it.

Is someone willing to translate once it's scanned?

it's been a while since i've been here, but does anyone have any good resources for painting environments, rooms and landscapes? basically non-character stuff.

pic related is basically all i have, and it's more about composition than landscapes. i guess i'll post paintings to bump too

sorry if this is a bit off-topic but i dont think any other board would be able to help me with my problem.
i recently downloaded the new shitty win 10 update and since then my tablet
1. wont be recognized by wacom center
2. when i hover over the tablet slightly with my pen, it basically reacts as though i am already touching the surface, it clicks through windows and i cant use painting programs because im basically always "clicking" so it just drags the cursor over the tablet screen when im just close to it

im kinda worried to uninstall the wacom driver since these are flimsy as hell but i really have no idea how to fix this at all
id be really appreciative of help... i cant work without my tablet

any guides to drawing from imagination? i know construction but idk how to make it good
24 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
draw nebulous shapes, put them together, see what happens
Here is the fastest way to get good at drawing a figure from imagination.

Copy from Artists who are actually good with Anatomy. It is much more memorable because the exaggerate the forms.

First copy a drawing until you get it right, then proceed to draw the same from memory. Then compare what you got wrong and do it again by fixing the parts you got wrong. You can't learn if you don't fix your mistakes when you notice them! don't ignore them and start another.

Do the same with many good artists who can draw from imagination so that you can combine their methods and shapes they use for certain muscles.
This is pretty much what Craig mullins said in this interview @ 1:30:50

It is great for memorizing anatomy and draw figures from imagination but you still need to understand perspective well to be able to draw complex scenes.
I watched the first few videos and it's kinda slow in information but I can see why. I'm learning a lot about how to THINK about the figure. Why was this course hidden from us in the sticky?
I pity these people who write shit like this on the daily

I really like the style. He should continue.
they are good, reminds me of old kitschy illustrations, pretty nice.
When the wind is slow
And the fire’s hot
The vulture waits to see what rots
Oh how pretty
All the scenery
This is nature’s sacrifice
When the air blows through
With a brisk attack
The reptile tail ripped from its back
When the sun sets
We will not forget the
Red sun over paradise

Anyone get a refurbished Optiplex as a dedicated art computer?
I only do my art on traditional mediums, but how powerful would a computer have to be do your art on that? Seems like any old laptop would be able to do it as long as it was powerful enough to run something like photoshop reliably
i use an old lenovo t420 laptop with some added ram and its just fine so i'm assuming it would be all good. it doesn't take much unless you are going to do 3d stuff.
I bought a refurbished thinkpad that's tethered to my cintiq few years ago. It runs all the latest programs without a problem so I'm sure the one in your pic would be even better. Just know you're not going to be able to play any kind of gaming on it what so ever.

I used refurb Optiplex 980 sf for 4 years. The only thing that I replace is the HD.

Make sure you check the grades and if you know how to build a pc you can fit in a small card and upgrade the ram. the processor that it came with is decent enough BUT you can't really work on a REALLY big canvas.

decent enough for people who are just starting out but if you want to make client work I suggest saving for a custom build.
