How do I get as good as Ilya?

feels good man. I've hoarded a huge HD of references to trace from and I'm learning his aesthetic style.

I really don't care. I care about my own skill.

Needs more chromatic aberration, bro. This is an ilya thread.

it's not surprising at this point. the guy's got 1 million instagram followers
>>
>>3160743
Feels good. Reminds me that people can make it if they become good enough.
>>
>>3160762
The loss is entirely yours. No one else is affected by you completely wasting your time. You're running around chasing phantoms to try and meet an end that means absolutely nothing. Good luck desiring rewards without understanding why people value the work that gets you there. Pretty big sign of how you live the other facets of your life. Like a bug feasting down feces.

Good for him. He draws really neat stuff.
>>
>>3160779
There are a lot of good artists that never get any exposure and only have a few followers and fans. So when some of them make it, it gives me hope.
>>
>>3160809
Ilya was a nobody until 2012. he got extremely lucky that one of his artworks was featured in the front page of deviantart for several days, giving him hoards of followers in a very short period, which of course got the ball rolling. in his case, it was pure luck.
>>
>>3160809
Followers and fans aren't the only way to make it. Some people would prefer the low visibility.
>>
>>3160743
Pretty cool because I compose music, my stuff is more varied than his and I have not plateaued yet. I also have a non art related job that pays the bills

Whenever I come back here I end up spending more and more time having to sift through and hide these pathetic drama and crab-bucket threads than I do actually finding something worth reading.

At any given time I probably end up hiding half of the front page to bypass petty shit-flinging, small wonder why most artists stop bothering to come here after they graduate /beg/.

You love it you know you do.

I went through his deviantart and looked at some of his old art. I think he's improved a lot.

Nice body, shitty head

Post your work.

He stopped drawing figures and specialized in portraits.

NAYRT, but man, that is my goal. I'm not trying to become an inspirational master. I'm just trying to have fun. I feel like that's so looked down upon in art communities, though.

i actually think ilya is pretty good. nothing special, but better than the average.

This. I don't get the hate. His style isn't something I want to imitate but it's appealing and has it's place. No need to be so jelly of someone else's success,
>>
I like Ilya's landscapes.
>>
>>3160769
Mikufag?
>>
I unironically downloaded a set of most of his works for future reference, thinking he can't be all that bad and that I'm just bandwagoning on the hate, but holy shit, there really mostly nothing worthwhile in this fucker. His works are uninteresting, all the same and bland as fuck. I want to punch the fuck out of his girls.

These are the kind of landscapes a portrait/pinup artist would paint. You can tell his heart isn't in it.

I know this because I've done the exact same shit. Well, until I got a real concept art job that is.
>>
>>3164391
nah you didn't, i thought the same thing. in fact i'm sure it is mikufag just fucking with you.
>>
>>3160743
>this is a top on the rankings of pixiv
But why? What makes it so good? Why do people like it? I don't get it.
>>
>>3164436
that's because those were done from a reference and your image is from imagination. illya is only as good as his reference. he's not an artist- he does not create, he embellishes.

But he apologized and doesn't do it anymore, who gives a shit
>>
>>3164761
>implying
>>
>>3164808
So look at his new art and tell me if he's tracing anyone. You guys have such a weird mentality. If someone did something bad like 4 years ago, but genuinely apologized for it, why bring it up all the time?
>>
>>3160761
you go to russian classical architecture/drawing uni, there you take all the basic courses on anatomy, projectile geometry, shadows and colors. You draw countless greek statues, naked dudes, naked fat women, shadowed cylinders and spheres and architectural elements. Then you chose your speciality and meticulously perfect your instrument. After 6 years of this grinding you switch to drawing cute anime girls like no one else does. This is how you get as good as him.
>>
>>3164761
>>3164813
>genuinely apologized
That post was basically "I was doing tributes, stop calling me bad names!" It was barely an apology.

>doesn't do it anymore
Now he just puts "Used photo as reference" in the last part of the description, whenever he isn't doing a "tribute" that is.
He never even says what "reference" he used, so people can't find out how much he copied.
