From the brief stint where I thought I could just jump on the anime bandwagon and not loose all motivation trying to draw a style i disliked.

>go through life being told you're great at art, get accepted to art course, be praised by teachers, peers, family
>add commission samples to a tweet you post that got big
>get replies saying i should get a new hobby that i should quit art entirely etc
whos telling the truth?

You are not good, you lack basic skills in every area, the fact that you cant see this shows that you do not hold yourself to a high standard. You should go back to the drawing board and focus on drawing and rendering basic 3d objects in perspective before focusing on anything more complicated. You do not understand when to use hard and soft edges, everything is sloppy and unapealing.

That being said, dont give up, if you work hard and persist you will surely achieve your goals.

Might work to think as backrounds like you would think of the foreground , same rules apply , perspective , anatomy , maybe less detail but you get the idea

Should you treat your art account for business/professional or shitposting/personal?

Today's /beg/ challenge: Draw a still life containing a pillow and a rock.

Do not use the OP image as your reference; draw a pillow leaning against a rock, or draw a rock sitting on the pillow, or be creative in some way. Remember to vary your line weight to capture the feel of the objects.

If you are a /beg/inner or /int/ermediate in art, please use this thread to post pieces for critique or ask for advice.
Use this thread instead of making new threads or post in the drawthread with fundamental exercises.

RESIZE YOUR IMAGES TO ~1000 PIXELS using one of the following methods:
1. screenshot the image and post that instead
2. change camera capture settings to something smaller
3. send to computer and resize in MSPaint

that's what it means though. Then pros draw an actual figure over it but begs can't do that

If you're on a break after drawing and feel like sharing what's on your mind about what you're working on, the industry, things that excite you about art, or anything that frustrates you about drawing or the process of art then grab a cup of water and chill out here. Remember to keep the discussion on-topic as much as possible

Just assume you are creative and draw what you want to draw. "A-Am I creative enough??" is unironically your depression trying to fuck you, creativity cant go away unless you had a stroke or something. If its that bad then just study until you feel like doing something creative

Got fed up with all the AI shitposting, shitflinging and crabbing, so I'm going to quit this place for good and start working harder to put out an adequate drawing on social media every other day or so. This place was helpful to introduce me to vilppu and krenz, but none of the crabbing ever helped. So long faggots and the five good people who actually draw.

I think I've come to the depressing realization that I'll never be able to retire.
For the rest of my life (that matters), I'm going to have slave away full-time while using what little time I have to enjoy drawing.
I had a plan and everything too, but I was being far too optimistic about my returns.

>Couldn't you work in art/commissions
No, it doesn't earn enough at all. Besides me just not being good enough.

this is gonna sound really weird but do you guys have those days where you cant draw single line or do shit right?
like i just suck at everything, i have zero pen control, forget fundies, forget steps and just mess up everything when i could it fine yesterday.
i dont know why this happens, I'm nit sick i just feel weird and weak and do everything like shit.
is this normal time to time?
it goes away after a day but until then i cant do shit that while day

>>6211735
it’s normal but an unfortunate circumstance for beginners

>>6211735
Yes, in my case.
Days like that I'm just forcing myself to draw and 9/10 times it's much better after 4h or so.

>Perspective Made easy

Then into Krenz, imo. Mostly cause Krenz has a really good method for complex items/figure drawing, but it requires a strong base in perspective to pull it off, imo
Good luck with it, bro, can't wait to see your gains

>>6211791
thank you, saved it! i have neglected perspective pretty badly, today I tried to do a room scene and it was atrocious
>>
>>6211796
Just gonna say, as someone that has gone through perspective made ez, don't be too afraid to jump straight into Olson desu.. he really starts from nothing, repeating stuff 3 times (part of why the course its actually so long, he goes into a lot of detail and makes sure you get it before moving on.
Again, good luck, bro

thanks gonna check the first part then and if its too hard I will go to perspective made easy. we gonna make it brah, it's actually good to get recommendations of courses from people that have actually tried them

Confess your /ic/ sins brothers. I will start with myself: I have never read a book by Loomis because his theory is very outdated, it is for a specific drawing style and I never want to read that book

A little bit, yeah. I haven't worked with color before besides playing around with gradient layers and stuff. I want it to look like morning sunlight is hitting them or something. This was really just supposed to be an exercise so the final one will probably be B&W but I figure as long as I can learn something from it might as well.

Why is it that photoshop is the only one where I have to keep optimizing just to use it?

>Guidelines:
1. [THE MOST IMPORTANT] Don't post too revealing works (especially porn). If you think it's too lewd, post a censored copy here and link to Catbox, Imgur, or any off-site that hosts images for your works. Note: If you're having issues viewing catbox links, use a VPN.

2. Do not post child photo references, legal or otherwise.

3. Due to this general's PPH (posts per hour/thread activity), please wait until the thread falls to around page 5 or 6 before making a thread. Use archived(moe) or warosu to retrieve the old threads.

4. Keep all outside drama from other generals, boards, or outside communities from /lsg/.
