Study from pic related, understand the underlying form and structure and most importantly analyze and get the gesture behind the figure. Once you have understood the concept behind what the figure is doing, deviate away from life while still holding onto the fundamentals and turn what once was a 3dpigdisgusting into the abstract and ideal.

Protip: Do not directly reference the figure while deviating away from life, simply copying the figure and slapping on a moe blob for a head will not work and would result in a figure that is out proportion and the uncanny valley.

Get to it faggots.

I kind of know what you're talking about; in some of his not early but not later pieces his characters came off as very "neutral" in attitude, indeed like people cosplaying instead of like actual characters. It could also be the effect of cartoonish costumes over figures that are more realistic than usual

the place is already slow as fuck and already "run" by a plunderbund of malignant gatekeeping faggots and niggardly knownothing children that are way more concerned with justifying their own virginal bullshit than actually working towards self-improvement. The attitudes here are the most cancerous and self-defeating of probably any online "community" anywhere. What are you protecting really?

>>3573446
from my experience the people that reee about grids are generally the ones that should be using them the most.

Would you guys recommend going to an art school if you absolutely want to get serious in art?
17 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
>>
Not necessarily art school per se, but it's good to have an actual teacher or mentor to give you feedback. There are some things you can't get through books. Many pros now teach via the internet, I think Kim Jung Gi and Ruan Jia do too, Craig Mullins now has a great digital painting class. But you can definitely do it on your own, with things like NMA, Schoolism, Gnomon. Gumroad etc.

What would you guys say an employer looks at more when going for an art related job. Do they care more about a certification in art or do they care more about your folio more?
I've heard people say that you don't actually need to get a degree in art to get a job in art if so how hard is it without a degree or certification?
>>
>>3573477
It's not about the degree when doing art school. It's about the feedback. The school is the place where you makes all of your failures and failing fast so you can correct it with the teacher. The portfolio is what the employer sees but they don't see all the shit to make what you showed them.

These is Precure artbooks. I always all of its assumed adult fans are loaded with cash,since children's TV anime from japan usually attract the cult-like otaku. Jesus christ are you really making anon buy AND scan this list of artbooks you just made.

He's not making anyone buy anything but asking for so many series-related books is a bit pathetic.
>>
>>3573338
True, I’m not making anyone buy all those books and scan them all at once because I know how much time that can take up & I myself don’t know how to scan. However, regarding how pathetic it is to buy so many series-related books, I won’t buy all of them if I ever get a chance to I’ll only buy 3 of them including the Yukiko Nakatani one but as mentioned before, I don’t mind waiting and nor I’m keeping an expectation from someone to scan all these books 2-3 is enough in my opinion but like I said, I’ll wait for someone to scan either any of these books. I don’t mind waiting for years since I’ve waited A LOT and don’t mind waiting any further. I have a few mangas I could scan if only I knew how to scan properly but this is not the place for those it seems.
>>
>>3573333
No anon I already made my point here >>3573460 but I’m into precure and haven’t seen any of the artbooks go up. Just a few itty bitty scans and that’s it. The thing is, this fan base is divisive in some way when it comes to stuff like shipping and what not heck even if you ask for scans, people will lash out on you.

There are a bunch of precure scans on sadpanda

Picture not related, I see some impossibly high technical level there. But I consciously thought about it 3 years ago with the Mob Psycho manga, it oozes charm and I like the ddrawings

Is it even possible to isolate yourself from society and study 10 hours a day and git gud in a year? Or is this just childish nonsense?
>>
>>3573436
anything which involves a great act of will is childish nonsense

you can't lose weight by just not eating 6 days a week because you won't do it, so it's a bad plan.

you won't cut yourself off from society and study 10 hours a day, so it's a bad plan.

whenever you want to do something consider doing it like a normal human would do it first. and try make that work.
>>
>>3573436
Some people have the temperament for it, that being said they'd never ask that question -- so you do not.
>>
Peter Han said he studied like 60 hours a week IIRC. Feng also did it.
My conclusion is you can do it only if you are Asian, it seems.

Anyone here use a Huion display tablet?
How do they compare against Wacom?
84 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>3572867
I'm on the 22 Pro and it's noticeable on the edges, not noticeable in the middle.

Whether or not it's a deal breaker is dependent on the person. It hasn't bothered me yet, and seems to be a concession for screen tablets around 300-500 range. Who knows how long until we see bonded screens within this range.
>>
>>3572639
Yeah. I'm not home so I can't take a look, but that should be it. The settings should persist after save. The Intel integrate GPU has the same problem. Also if you use Linux has unoffical drivers if you needed them. Same "TV" problem there.
>>
>>3572647
Try monitor arm. I like drawing standing, and monitor arm helps me a lot.
>>
>>3572867
I have the 15.6. If you've ever used a tablet before (without a screen) it's zero problem at all. Bad around the edges, but this is the case with any screen tablet. But it took me about an hour of playing with it when I first got it til I no longer had any issues whatsoever with the parallax. Just make sure to calibrate accurately.
>>
>>3547259
I used to own a Ugee 2150 monitor tablet, it was very very good and I loved making the transition from normal graphics tablet to monitor tablet. The Ugee 2150 is basically the same thing as the Huion GT 191. See which one you can get cheaper, but maybe with a sale you get it for <400€ / <450$.

Drivers were solid, customization was okay on them, but I don't value such settings as much. The monitors have no express keys but you can use a wireless remote or keyboard, depending on what's more comfortable to you.
