It's amazing how a post can get thousands of likes/RTs on Twitter but can still only net you maybe a few dozen followers.

But at least it looks like you or account finally got the jumpstart it needed. I hate my sad and lonely art account ;_;

Read again pal, I said you still need to know the real anatomy before you start doing this.
I'm assumming OP thinks he can skip learning real bodies and jump into learning mannequins, just like some people think they can do Pixel art instead of learning how to draw.

What artists' tablets do you use?

Hey /ic/, I don't usually post here, but I'm asking for opinions if anyone has any to give.

I'm looking to get a new tablet for my boyfriend for the holidays, but I have no idea what's good in that area of technology. He has a Monoprice TWA60 right now but wants something with a screen. (He doesn't know I'm getting him a tablet either.) I've done a bit of research and narrowed my choice down to either the XP-PEN 15.6 or the Huion KAMVAS 19.5, to stay in a decent budget. I know this isn't just any kind of gift though, since a lot of personal opinion goes into it.

So I was wondering if anyone has any experience with either? Or has any other suggestions. I really appreciate it!

I got a surface pro just now. How do you set it up for painting and drawing ?

My normal ps workflow includes a buttload of hotkeys in tiny menues that is shit with the touch. Resizing brushed or making new layers or even ctrl z seems like a hassle now.
idk dude, I use Clip Studio on the surface and it's great cause mostly everything you're mentioning is there on the screen. Sucks you like using overpriced photo manipulation software to make art.
god damn, fuck digital art man
i'm just trying to digitally color my drawings, and now i've got to do a fucking soul-searching endeavor, deep dive into the internet to figure out how NOT to waste 500 dollars on a fucking fragile, piece of shit tablet that will break after 6 months, apparently. why does this have to be so much harder than buying a goddamn nice sheet of paper and pen? jesus, it's so frustrating.
stfu fag, nobody's forcing you to draw digital, chill
buy a screenless tablet if you want quality then
those are cheap and tough

this makes me wanna revisit Docu
Yes, the extra subtlety of the collarbones and smoothness of the shoulders helps significantly. The clavicles definitely do the weird inverse thing. I think something mildly odd is that the shoulders don't follow the direction of the ribcage, I think that makes the upper body flow less.

Don't reply to bait and crabs edition

This is the place for:

1. Posting your anime studies:
>Copy exactly but don’t do it aimlessly. Integrate drawing concepts (construction, color theory, tracing, etc.) into your studies in order to pull information from the reference (anime art, figurines, tutorials) that you can later use for your original work.
>Do a single study multiple times to ensure you address all of your mistakes and memorize the correct process in your head. Draw it from memory as well.
>You will only be able to effectively deviate from your reference after doing exact copy studies accurately and consistently.
2. General anime style discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.
>Drawing methods, study habits, resources, tutorials, tools, software, etc
>Be specific and try to post a sample of your study attempts before asking for help.

a good start is Anki flashcards for vocab+ Genki textbook for grammar. use the core 6k deck for anki. learn the syllabaries (reading and writing them) and then the radicals to make looking up and remembering kanji easier. study everyday. immerse yourself in native material. 頑張って!
Because you should want to make the lines yourself. Relying on a crutch isn't a good way to improve.

I usually do super flowy brush pen shit so I'm not used to using small pens and doing details. I think you can tell where I got bored haha.
For this I used a 005 micron, paper is mix media 7x10.

I’m a girl, gay, and I mostly draw men. I don’t think there’s really a correlation unless maybe their work has super sexual themes.
I’m a dude who draws landscapes, give me attention.
Hey I recognize that location, what the fuck.
Of course she's at Pacific Mall.

Drawing newbie here, I'm trying to learn to draw from reference but I'm having difficulty understanding how to draw the shadows on a face that is has very subtle shadows on it. Here's the reference photo I'm using:

And here's my drawing:
I don't even know where to start shading his face in, but I know there has to be some shadow on it =/
I know how to draw features in really harsh, direct lighting, but this is tricky for me.
Oh, sorry, I didn't see there was a /Beg/inner thread. I'll post there instead. Feel free to delete this one jannies.

I will Sumarize Watts Atelier Head Phase 1 and 2.

1.-Draw the loomis head (look proko for free)
2.-Draw a skull front view, 3/4 and profile
3.-Memorise a simple azaro had 3/4, front view and profile
4.-Memorize the Reily method
5.-Memorize The azaro had

He tries you to buy models of the skull, an azaro, from the azaro head guy but you can find 3d models for free on the internet.

There I saved you $100 bucks a month. You don't even need to watch the videos as Jeff just draws without giving any extra info.

I don't doubt other courses I didn't see are good. but yeah. I still don't get why people pay him that much.

This. Jeff Watts’ rambling is GOOD, redarts!
well maybe he is not good at english and have to struggle to find the right word to express himself
doubt it

Jeff's pep talks might be useful for young teens or fuck-ups who toke all day in their parents' basements. If you've got your shit reasonably together like any normal person, he's costing you $$$ to tell you obvious things about life that you know already, in a condescending (but sincere) way at that.

It's pretty arrogant to style himself as some kind of life coach/philosophical guru, dispensing unsolicited, self-evident "advice", when people are paying him for drawing instruction, because, you know, that's what he does for a living. It actually would be ok if he talked about the lesson mostly and rambles a bit, but he does the inverse.

Still, no doubt he has the drawing/painting chops, so his shit it totally worth pirating. The lack of crit means you have to think for yourself, which shouldn't be an issue unless you have room temp IQ or are an absolute novice at drawing.

Wasteful posts

This guy might have a stutter but he's a top artist enough to be tolerated as an instructor despite his disability and he is bilingual, besides. You can't even make it through a 20 minute lecture, let alone live like that. Soft-ass nigga, this is why you're not going to ma-m-m-ma-ma-m-m-m-make it, faggot!

>Draws DA tier shit like the pic.
>Charges "per hour" or $100-200 for a halfassed drawing with no color (color costs extra)
>Doesn't allow you to put the drawing anywhere or use.
>You can only see it on their art site gallery.
>You can't chose the pose or anything
>You can't profit from the drawing.
>Artists can use the pic whatver they want.

Then why the fuck should I be paying you?


Artists like to bitch that people abuse them, but at last you should be pro level if you want snowfalke treatment. I can and will hire someone else instead

If you're 25 years old then 1/3rd of your life has been used up amusing you live to 75 at least, which is the average* burger lifespan. If you start at 25 that is the equivalent of a baby starting at 1 years old. The only difference is you're a baby reincarnated with all the memories and experiences when you were previously 1 - 24 years old.

If you start at 30 years old that is the equivalent of starting at 5 years old, same principle and so on. Theoretically at these age points, so as long as you're not 2/3rds of your life gone, you have a "2nd chance" to make things right at an early age. If you start at 40 that's like starting at 15 years old when most kids were drawing much earlier.

So why make the same mistake and start now with the greatest bonus of starting less than age 10 in mental years?

Only on /ic/ do you get anons who don't know how to proceed in crabbing when the ball is actually in their favor no matter what.
Yes, anon, let me just squeeze what little mental and emotional energy I have from grinding away at my shit ass job.

Such naive thinking. The system just isn't set up to allow for creatives to flourish. Get a job to escape the guillotine of poverty and death. Your art doesn't matter because you are a cog in the machine.
If you put all your heart and soul for 5 to 10 years in drawing you can escape the office just the same.
Im 19 and have tried drawing in the past with meh results. When I was kid I was the best artist, probably along with everyone else on /ic/. Fuck, I miss that so much
