Structured and focused study thread based off this FZD video so watch it to understand what we're gonna be doing.
Starting out with simple stuff and progressing to harder subject matter.

Week 1 - Stones, rock formations
Week 2 - Trees, branches
Week 3 - Animal bones, skulls
Week 4 - Bugs
Week 5 - Hairless animals
Week 6 - Old historic buildings

GOAL: 5-6 pages with 10 sketches on each page (each sketch should take 20-30 minutes) by the end of the week.
That totals to about 5 hours per page or 25-30 hours per week.
Obviously do as much as you can and it's fine if you can't meet the goal but just keep it in mind.

... the fuck?
What kind of a sick, dingleberry, ngmi, lazy PHAGGIT doesn't
draw rock formations in their spare time?

Get on your knees and give me 20 pushups!
When you're done, I want to see some damn rocks!
if im doing this on a tablet should the stabilizer be off
You should just draw. Even with a dry turd and the floor. The end goal here is to draw with an objective.
Dont sweat it!
Feng already stopped his video on it LOL

How does one become a good painter?

>Inb4 practice
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
smart practice. its highly underrated what to learn at what moment in what depth. this is also quite diffucult because it requires exact observation of your mental state as well as honesty with your own work.
You are either born with a talent or a burning desire. Things sort themselves out from there.
If you want to be a really top notch painter in a traditional medium like oils, ateliers are the way to go - the intense work load and small class size, working with masters is the only way to get the focused education that the old masters typically would get. If I were starting out now, I'd be looking at them pretty seriously - art schools are more focused on "modern" art and don't drill down, except the top schools like Pratt or ArtCenter, that still respect the traditional techniques.

On top of that, being a good painter means thinking like one. Forget anime, forget game design, forget furry porn - if you want to paint, dedicate to it, and immerse yourself. Spend your time painting, reading about painting, talking to other painters about painting, and go look at paintings. Like any creative pursuit, you have to get obsessed, and stay obsessed, and train your mind to not get distracted by other things.

And yes, you have to practice. A lot. There's simply no shortcuts. Your goal is the same as a woodworker, or a guitarist, or any creative type - you have to get to know your tools, yourself, and learn confidence and intimately know your tools so you're working from not only intent, but intuition and familiarity. You can't master something like painting overnight, it's gonna take years, starting from zero.
Thank you. That was motivating

Anyone know of artists who successfully combine painting with linework? I need examples/pieces that have pulled it off. It can be interpreted either way: painting done under linework or painting that mimics colored pencils/pastels and is more like drawing than painting. I hope I'm able to get my point across well enough, not sure how to articulate it more clearly.

Pic unrelated
Watercolors are a good place to look for that kind of thing.

Real life will tech you the things you need to know, stop falling into the grind/ loomis meme.
I disagree in that you shouldn't treat it like a linear process
what possessed you to think books and youtube videos are enough to get good?
Practicing real life drawing a lot still counts as grinding though

What are some things /ic/ (or any other art community) told you to study only to be completely wrong?
191 replies and 28 images omitted. Click here to view.
Correct. Also try as hard as you can to do it from memory, really trying to find the forms. Then when you get stuck and look at reference (don't spend too long looking for refs) the things you forgot about and didn't know will jump out, and you will learn.
please be bait
it does though.
ESPECIALLY on /ic/ were most people are deviantart tier people who don't even have the arm muscle mass to control their lines properly. minute details always work on the long run, if they don't you aren't pushing yourself hard enough and you forget your progress between each piece. Drawing isn't like bike riding, you actually forget about how to do it over time, and it goes away fast, 3 weeks are enough to get back to needing the basics.
>Form, shapes, value, what the fuck ever it doesn't fucking work.
you are fucking retarded I guess?

I can tell you can draw pretty well OP. Buckle down and apply yourself and draw something that isn’t bullshittery now. I want to see.
It's the good ol drawing-memes-so-you-cant-say-its-bad-and-i-dont-have-to-improve trick. I wish I would have never done this before it stopped all my progress.

I hate having these enchanting, incredibly detailed images in my head and then trying to put them onto paper and ending up with stick figures.
1 reply and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
So figure out where you are lacking and improve those aspects.
Luckily there’s a simple fix. WORK THOSE FUNDIES. Unironically. Do studies and add to your visual library so you can translate the picture in your mind (which isn’t as detailed as you think if you’re only producing stick figures btw) to your canvas
so does everyone
where is the FUCKING crybaby thread man i thought that came back

Keep trying. Do it until you feel it. Work on your line confidence and draw circles and ellipses until it feels natural and good. I'm no expert but improvement can be attained. You can do it senpai, I believe in you.
>OP is such a noob that they have trouble drawing a simple ball and plane

Come on, this is obviously a joke/meme thread.
My phone auto-corrected. Aren't is what I meant to type.

You are drawing a circle on the sphere, you can see some of the side planes you drew wraps around and vanishes from sight. You do not want that.

Look at step 4 and see how the side of the head is "cut off". Look at your attempts and see how the 2 look different
I have a loomis head sketchup file. You can turn it and it's transparent. I got it from some gook website. Anyone want it?

I give up, /ic/. I don't know where else to put this so I'm putting it here. I've grinded 2 years, tried so many things with no meaningful output or improvements. I guess some people just aren't wired for it, fuck. This is the one thing I wanted to be good at. I put in countless hours. I worked hard as fuck. It's over for me. I fucking tried. Time to find something else.

He said 2 years, so it's 1.460 hours actually. Which is roughly 1/7th of the 10.000 meme.

~12 more years and OP will be good.

Oh, you're right.

2 months it's still little to nothing tho.

the faces make them look like old or middle aged ladies but that kind of makes it hot to see them wearing young school girl track running clothing
It's enough to get a decent grasp of art. It's twice the time I put in Monster Hunter. And I'm good at Monster Hunter.
I think I already did that but still gave up on drawing. Recently touch it again as a side hobbies while doing nothing in life.
