Still he had different beliefs, as clearly he didn't think he was going straight to hell just for punching holes in some dead guy's scrotum.
Art continued to advance together with secularization until the early of the 20th century when the modernists showed up to shit all over everything. They must have been God's punishment for Man's hubris.
Renaissance>early 20th century art
> Still he had different beliefs, as clearly he didn't think he was going straight to hell just for punching holes in some dead guy's scrotum
Yup, that's exactly my point. Plenty of people seem to struggle to go beyond blindly following rules.

Just look at atheism/evolution: most people act as if it was rock solid truth, still can't prove/disprove anything, nor understand any of the underlying reasoning. It's not necessarily that they are stupid, but they aren't brave, courageous enough to go against the crowd.

And that's understandable to some degree: going against the crowd often is a difficult position to reach & maintain. All major historical/spiritual figures met such issues (Christ, Socrates, Shakyamuni, etc.)

> They must have been God's punishment for Man's hubris.
I can but encourage you to study the situation from multiple, equally reasonable points of view. Take the time to observe Nature, as all ancient people did; painting is a fantastic activity.

I don’t want people to draw porn of my characters and the thought of that happening greatly demoralizes me from drawing.

I wish the oc threads had lewd posting as well

Like, how long before someone can simply tell an AI the instructions to draw their perfect waifu and thus 99.99% of coomer artists lose their job?
32 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Never ever.
Ai can't do style and it can't do things that don't exist. Sure it can make "cartoons" but it can't differentiate between adventure time and wow wow wubsy. Sure it can make buildings but it can't do exaggerated American neo Gothic urban architecture.
Ai can't do anything really.
You're a fucking retard.
All if those things require the ai being able to analyze your art and measure it in such a way that it can tell when to give you that advice and how.
Sure, maybe it will be able to detect perspective issues in simulated photography, but it can't manage perspective errors in an episode of dragon ball. It wouldn't even be able to see it without insane amounts of training and giving results is a whole other problem.

Also another reality is that there already is no barrier to being an artist in terms of physical ability. With just the default tools offered in csp or krita you can make pretty much anything already. There is no possible line that can't be made with the curve tool or the straight tool and stamps make consistency a breeze.
For as long as there have been curve tools and straights (physical or digital) you've never actually needed to learn the physical mechanics of drawing. It's just that 99% of people have too large an ego to use those tools and too easily bored to learn anyways.

AI are smarter than average human, the reason they aren't allowed to be popular are anti-semite
i've met maybe like a couple of game devs that enjoy the modeling or sprite work aspect of it, but i haven't really seen any other connection

>But like 50% of the time I'm watching someone on stream who's doing art they're a CSfag.
what if it's not because they're a programmer that they have any special ability but more because the tech industry offers the freedom to go for other hobbies?

>For as long as there have been curve tools and straights (physical or digital) you've never actually needed to learn the physical mechanics of drawing.
kek i've actually been thinking about this a couple nights ago what the point of me trying to make cleaner lines is when i could just fucking let the computer generate a pixel perfect circle
>AI will be able to correct advanced perspective issues, like foreshortened limbs reaching out to the camera. You'll also start seeing anatomy correction
Aren't these already thing since doing 3D is a thing?
The photobashing concept artists are probably the first ones to get laid off due to AI.

I mention that I'm an amateur beginner artist in my twitter bio even though I've been drawing for a while. It helps my brain distance itself from cope and reinforces the belief that I started not too long ago so I can let go of bad art habits.

what the fuck is this
You should make use of art prompt generators and character generators.
Yeah same. I realized that my technical ability is no longer the problem, it's the fact that I have no ideas anymore. I don't know what changed.
Why do you draw in the first place if you don't have a goal to achieve.
I am at a skill level that I am comfortable with (obviously I still have huge rooms for improvement) but my problem is that I am drawing too slowly to satisfy my own need to draw.

what does a search ban mean?
You can tweet but people won't see your tweet outside of your own followers?

are you legitimately retarded
Its because your idea of "drawing like an adult" is flawed and biased. Adults are just big fat children anyways, there's not much different.
you lack practice and training.
you lacked interest in drawing as a child, so you didnt even try.

Holy fuck this is incredible.

I like to contrast between cute soft female body and feminine vulnerability and masculine endurance, strength and virility. It's the ambivalence.
Something like this I don't enjoy that much. There is no dichotomy.
Probably low self esteem and autogynephilia, among other things

Is it too soulless if i learn to draw for pocketmoney? Like I want some vidya, skincare stuff. But I want to be a NEET too! And my government nor parents will not give me money. Yes I know it sounds immature but im only 27.

Anyhow is it too soulless to draw to make money?

>Captcha in post
you can draw for money and draw for yourself in your own time. If you're going to draw for money and you truly love art, you'll still find some sort of value either way even if the subject matter isn't your favorite.

Why is Frank Fazetta style art not popular anymore?
36 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
Feeling like your work becomes soulless when you "try hard" is a pretty common feeling. You aren't alone there. That said, I think what happens is you create some expectation and raises stress while also limiting your creativity.

Just go with the flow and know that the image is done when you say it is. That comes easier as you gain more knowledge--kind of like once you learn your characters special moves/frame data. After that it's just seeing what happens and adapting.

Looking at your sketchbook drawings shows me you do have talent. Learn to relax and draw what you want to draw.
lol cope retard, if you have developed speed watercolor is in many ways superior
its bad
Farzetta has, in some capacity, influenced 90% of illustrators working today. Basically your favorite artist's favorite artist.

Draw someone's OC or post your own. All skill levels are welcome.


1: Post a brief backstory if your OC has one.

2: Keep it fairly SFW please.

3: This is NOT a request thread, also posting your OC also isn't a guarantee that someone will draw your character/ exchange deliveries. Regardless please consider exchanging drawings with your fellow anons as it's what keeps these threads going.

4: Character/ Lore Dumps are allowed, just be sure to specify that you're not posting with the expectation of getting deliveries.

5: Be sure to thank Drawfrens for their hard work as soon as you can, it's just common courtesy :)

Gotta love when it comes out sideways.

Anyways, a little bit of lore about this character. She's a descendant of the Skraelings, theyre essentially Aztecs combined with Vikings who then interbred (my world lore has it so that the erik the red figure ended up colonizing america and uniting with the natives to develop a new nation that planned to reverse colonize Europe.

Anyways, the Skraeling are batshit insane. They eat peoples hearts and want their own hearts to be eaten upon death.

Signe is a Skraeling who thought their pillaging was too easy and wanted a challenge. She gets off to crushing peoples skulls with her bare hands and has devoted herself to acquiring a legendary flamberge sword, which she claims will be her "future husband". She does not bathe, smells like rotting flesh, and her hair is permanently dyed a brownish red due to the blood and gore knotted into it.
