Art is _____
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
for homos
Art is political. Art is inherently revolutionary.

All the politically neutral or apolitical artists are in fact secretly Right wing shit heads.

Black Lives Matter
not porn

I want to draw something with a scary ghost but I can’t figure out a good composition / pose that looks unnatural or weird.

Weird poses and ghosts reference thread?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
>Weird poses and ghosts reference
contortionists do weird poses
having a figure pose like an animal outside of its species (human like a lizard, dog like a person, etc)

The tone and setting can be more effective than just focusing on figure poses.
>out of place figures (dirty clothed girl climbing out of clean tub, clown in sewer, etc)
>figure looking directly at viewer
>semi or fully obscured figure
>visibly misplaced emotions relative to commonplace setting (sinister grin at birthday party, etc)
>bad shit happening in bad places (war, etc.; may end up conveying more sadness than fright)
>body horror (parts where they shouldn't be or warped)
>common phobias (filth, insects, etc)
Lots to work with. But no skeletons, too spooky.

Give it to me straight bros...

I'm not going to make it, am I?

I've been practicing from scratch for 2 weeks and this is all I have to show for it. About to kill myself.
It's not good but don't hang yourself over it, everyone drew like absolute garbage when they first started out.
take a few days off and come back at it again, if you don't give up you will achieve something of value one day.
Don't kill yourself anon. There's so much more to life other than art. What would your parents think if you killed yourself? Your friends? Family?

It's not the fault of Crypto if you don't do your due diligence and fall for obvious rug pulls and pump and dumps. You're the type that has stupid money, goes into a market, buys shit out of the whim of others fueled by euphoria and hype with zero fundamentals and then complains about losing it all to an asset with the name Inu in it and having the gall to ask where was the government to protect your dumbass.

You can also use your artistic skills to write colorful ransom letters or your Photoshop skills to trick people with fake documents, businesses and all sorts of creative work.

Why don't you do it?
Is it because it's illegal?

I personally don't do it because it's immoral, just like NFTs. You uncivilized nigger.

You just won't do it purely out of principal because you refuse to accept that somebody else is right and would much rather miss out on the greatest wealth transfer you'll probably ever see in your life. I've never seen such a self absorbed and egocentric remark until now so if it is your ego that gets in the way of improving your quality of life you deserve nothing but dogshit.

The whole "muh energy" argument is retarded, I have my qualms with crypto and NFTs especially but energy is probably the least of their problems. If they actually turn out to be popular enough for widespread use, the world will simply adapt to a huge part of energy output being dedicated to blockchains, it might even result in a renewable energy boom and new breakthroughs in personal solar (or other) types of tech to offset the power requirement.

Imagine if hundreds of years ago, when everyone held all their wealth in personal belongings and rare metals at home or similarly close and guarded places, that in a couple hundred years time everyone will hold all their wealth in private yet government backed institutions that will have dozens of brick and mortar locations even in small towns let alone big cities, that they will each need to employ hundreds of workers, that new advanced tech systems will be invented to keep track of everything, that it will require enormous resources just to keep running and that it will require payment in forms of fees, etc, they would think of it as a huge waste of space, time, and money just to do something they already have taken care of. Banks eventually came to be seen as a natural evolution, and blockchain tech might end up being the same in the future, people in the future might think it was insane for us to let banks handle everything instead of putting the responsibility of the ledger on every individual in a decentralized system.

Same thing with public vs personal transport, we just get used to these giant inefficient wastes of natural resources and conveniences, because they offer other conveniences people found more important. If crypto can take away any power away from the banks, I wish it all the best.

You are next after them and no one will think of you as a hero

What's happening? If 5 years ago you told me that a gaijin could animate something like this for anime, I wouldn't believe you. Just how fast are they learning, and will Japanese animators get replaced by them?

Also, did this just prove that Asian Genes are just a meme?

Westerners also can write and draw a good manga and an anime, and of course everyone else, but they don't do that because Japan have a strict rules (like a China on technology companies) and don't have a budget and wish. It's not a magic.
>unneducated retard again assuming that he needs asian jeans to GMI
>despite anime being copied from old school disney & asians taking a bunch of inspo from west (just as west takes from east)
it differentiates on a whole another level though. The limited Kanada-style animation would probably considered abomination by some retard western purist. But it's just as good as full animation.

Right now I'm drawing for money, dingus, and clients don't like it when you share internal documents.

Also, I know it's hard to keep track of time in Covid-world, but that's from 4 months ago.

It's as make believe as any other fantasy story you ever heard. It's fucking santa for adults that cannot evolve past children mentality.

Societies with less religion are more advanced in terms of culture, art and science.

Threads don't change board culture. Good posts do. If you seek change, post work, spread positivity, be genuine and helpful. Be the change you want to see on /ich/
>concept art not popular anymore
Hmm. GOOD!
So, you expect a bunch of strangers to be as educated as yourself in such specific subjects and get mad because they aren't?
I dunno, anon, seems to me like you're more about circlejerking than actually trying to discuss anything.
Try plebbit.
Is the thread archived? Got any links to it?
16' is where this site went all to shit due to election tourists, so it makes sense.
>The only way to win is to leave this board behind for good. Most oldfags left for a reason... (or became cynical and jaded)
You're not wrong.
This anon gets it.
We can banter and call each other fags, but we should always try to lift each other up in the end.
>So, you expect a bunch of strangers to be as educated as yourself in such specific subjects and get mad because they aren't?
Are you a retard? Underage? Basic art history is not too specific a subject to be educated about on an art board. If you want to be a movie director, you are supposed to know shit about cinematography. Yes or no? Is it this too complicated to understand?

1. Don't post nudity or too revealing works.
When in doubt, post a censored copy here and link to the original off-site (e.g. catbox, imgur, etc).

2. **No Porn**.
No, not the retarded "anything with a body in it is porn" standard or "I see her underwear, MODSSS!!!" Use common sense.

3. Do not post sexualized child photo references. In fact, don't post pictures of children at all.

4. Due to the PPH (posts per hour/thread activity) of this general, 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.

Drawing exercises and short gestures
Sounds weird, but squeezing out a drawing takes time. Doing a couple small gestures or posing a few torsos until you find one you like enough to keep going can help.

Good call. I decided to lean more lanky than chubby but you were right it was too curvy and 'mature' looking.
