One Artist I forgot to show in this image is Peter Doig. Sometimes but very rarely there's an artist like him, who although not classically trained, can create something unconventional but appealing, exciting and mesmerizing.

Although I'm not exactly new to drawing, I wanted you give the Igor Stravinsky exercise a try.
What can I take from this? What should I work on more?
your lines suck and aren't very confident

The exercise doesn't really tell you much about your work its more of a "oh so this is drawing what you see" kind of thing to stop symbol drawing.
Well it's less of "stop symbol drawing" and more of "this is what it feels like to not symbol draw and actually take your time to measure." Be careful what you say around these /beg/gars.

I really like the appeal of the 'tumblr style' of expressions.

I personally have trouble making expressions and I guess I have a strange fear of deforming the face form the basic 'dead look' of proportions laid out across teh face.

How do you guys just throw caution in the wind and crank out 'good expressions?'

What /makes/ a 'good expression' ?

When working on faces should Posture and body language come first or second to the facial expressiveness?

Right here: Can we get some expression charts going in this thread for refs examples and practice /IC? let's see your style/
Don't do that expression sheet bullshit. All emotions need a certain context (something the character is reacting to) otherwise you get vapid stock expressions.

Every single part of the face and body should have a reaction too, it's not just a fucking facial expression you should do.

>all this nonsense about talent

Are you guys retarded? Just fucking google and read some books, you niggers, everyone knows talent is either bullshit or just heavy interest in the subject, depending on what you consider "talent".

What is talent for basketball? Being fucking tall and black, the rest you practice. What is talent for running? Being African, the rest you run. What is talent for drawing? Having a hand and not being a retard, the rest you study and practice.

>b-b-buh muh criativity!

Stop being a faggot, even that is learned.
but anon, I'm kind of a retard.
This. I balance things out with strict timed practice and then sketching. Right now I'm going through How to Draw by Scott Robertson for the strict stuff. Then on the side I learn to sketch with different ink tools while following Pen and Ink Drawing: a simple guide.

Hopefully it all comes together sooner than later.

I dont think there is a single person alive today making a living solely from poetry
Maya Angelou

Lyricists are essentially poets, who set their poems to music.

There are thousands of poets who make a living selling books of poetry.
Not the movie industry, no. I've worked freelance for years in the music industry and book industry, and a lot of the people I know and work with have social overlap with the movie industry. It's easy to have that happen, in entertainment.

I really enjoy the way that you appply paint in lines. It's unique and adds a lot to the painting.

However, the subject of the painting is too goofy for y tastes. And the composition feels a little too claustrophobic
yeah i need to do preparatory sketches and drawings for paintings like this so I don't end up with a cramped composition. I kinda can't do anything about the goofiness, I'm just really goofy. I masturbate like 5 times a year because it makes me tired and could care less about sex. There's just not much in the way of sexual coolness or slick presentation in any part of me. I'm just kind of a goofball. My go to character design is "45 year old guy with dumb face". So not much I can do about that part of your critique.
This is nice, good expression.
Colors are nice, I think composition-ally its bad form to put the subject dead center in the frame. Pixel version is very nice.
Nice for a shirt/coffee mug
Good colors so far. Needs more rendering/to be cleaner I think
Underrated. Very nice

Why aren't you learning how to make tattoos, Anon?

Basic kit costs like 35$, pic related.
And you don't even have to know how to draw to get a job - you don't need Loomis to copy photos.
Making tattoos is a perfect way to grind your fundies and earn money at the same time, prove me wrong.

Richfag who almost never comes to this board here. If you artists are worried about money start trading crypto and getting >>>/biz/ smart
i like furry porn commissions more to be honest family
What? Furries are so fucking nice. They tip, they appreciate good art, and they're not afraid to spend a lot. Do you know what kinds of degenerates you're going to have to hang around as a tattoo artist? Those luxury tattoo parlors are few and far in between. You're going to end up having to deal with fat bitches who think they get a free tattoo because they're girls, druggies spending more money than they have trying to cover up every blank space on their body, and people who don't understand that $80 will not get you a full back tattoo.

I fell for this tattoo artist bullshit. Don't let it happen to you. Unless you really want to be a tattoo artist. Follow your dreams if that's the case.
