It is easy to appeal to braindead normies that follow group think dynamics, they see a popular trending event and they will also hit dat subscribe, like, and favorite button just because they see the other hundreds likes being featured regardless if the content really interests them or not it is all fictitious bullshit that is worth nothing except for about fifteen minutes of a dopamine rush and high with a bit of an ego boost leaving you wanting more until ultimately turning you into an attention seeking whore.

I had no idea what to expect from trying this but it turns out its still mostly a me problem but drawing in Sai feels much more closer to drawing on paper the stabilizer is still super responsive and my lines do look much cleaner thank you very much!
Doesn't he emphasize the importance of following everything in correct, rigid order? Also even my boxes are clearly low level.

How long does it take to fully understand the female head and be able to replicate it from any angle, any expression, etc.?

Do you know how to the draw the male head from any angle, but not the female one? Did you just forget to practice drawing females along the way?
It depends on a lot of factors. How often one practices, access to good critique, the quality of practice, etc. you will not get a simple answer because it depends on the person.
168 days, give or take a few hours.
Let's say 2 hours a day, no critique other than looking over your drawing after you're finished.

Why that specific number lol

Will I be arrested if I go to a nude model art drawing session and produce a shitty stick figure drawing with no talent at all? I just want to see some tits IRL but I wouldn't do anything creepy and I would actually try to (poorly) draw them.

*ahem* Model names?
If you’re not an artist and you decide to attend a life drawing course you will be disillusioned by the matter-of-fact unsexiness of the human body, OR you’ll discover you have a fetish. Just go to a strip club or get a gf.
Life drawing for artists is very kino tho. It’s pretty amazing watching someone hold interesting poses for long stretches of time and it’ll actually grow your appreciation for the human body. Getting horny during life drawing just never happens, even if the model is attractive, if you’re there to do the work you’ll be focused on actually doing the work.
The fact I had to draw 3 naked men and only 1 naked woman makes me grateful to have dropped out. -.-
Actually, I’ve seen some where the artists are actually quite impressive. Like, you know the ones where an innocent girl signs up for artistic nude modeling, and halfway through they bring in a male model, and he just starts raping her in the middle of the session? Those ones.
Go to a titty bar if you want to see titty. Go to life drawing class if you want to get art gains like a real man.

Is it possible for online artists to keep themselves and their work politically neutral in 2020?

You’re kidding. You’re really gonna sit there and tell me that these aren’t political at all ?
that's not abstract, there are clear representations of people and objects in it as well as writting
I would hate Korean men too if I couldn't take a shit in a public bathroom without worrying about a hidden camera installed somewhere I can't see.

looks like shit
besides the fact that he was an intellectual ubermench, scientific fields were a bit simpler back in the day (many things hadn't yet been discovered), making it easier to become a polymath.
He simply didn't have vidya, social media, tv, computers and all the other shit that drains our life away back then.

>many argentinians
what's the problem?
Our gallery scene is almost dead. We have almost no patrons, no one buys art pieces, and selling a work overseas costs a ton of money.
Currently we have a couple good sculptors, and painters are mostly abstract/contemporary/kitsch.
Almost every tradfriend who had potential to be a realist painter, either turned to mural painting or comics.
Personally I'm studying realistic painting but after making a single mural painting I got two potential clients in a couple weeks, so that's where the money is now. The best ones get scouted by yuros and make some good dosh.
Every Latin American country and its anti-culture of extreme laziness, constantly blaming problems on others, sabotaging/undermining your fellow men at every turn and literally the crabs in a bucket mentality its deeply rooted into the subconscious of most of its people, if you are aware of this you probably want out, I suggest you make concrete plans to escape and move abroad as soon as possible and never ever look back.
t. Latin American who escaped his shithole and truly made it abroad quickly after. Seriously, living over there its living life on hard mode and life becomes a breeze once you are out and able to realize your potential since you are not living in a whole society which operates exclusively based on ignorance, abuse, sabotage and violence.

Thank you anon, I did make them smaller- I'm glad you mentioned that because I had been debating on it for a while.

Does this look like I can move onto the next stage?
I hope its clear. I love things that are very busy, especially with nature and maybe it looks "busy" instead of detailed but I'm hoping that when I actually start to refine it it will look clearer.
oh nooooo in the thumbnail it loooks so baaaddd I don't know how to make it make sense

I've actually been too lazy to create / import my old brushes from CS6 to CC. It's dang frustrating to paint like this but glad to hear the result is appealing!

I got it as an affordable way just to try out a display tablet, since I spent the last 8 years on a screenless one. Can't say I'm too surprised it ended up this way, but I'm still disappointed since I've heard relatively positive reviews from this company.
What OS are you on, OP?
