I've been having shoulder/neck/back pains and it's interfering with how much I can draw. Are there exercises or stretches that can help?

If there's a posture suggestion guide somewhere, that'd be great too.
too much blurring, blurring is generally bad because sharper shadows look better in the grand scheme of the picture, also need to render better, shadows don't seem to even exist in this; I recommend the book Color and Light for the basics, it's indispensable. When you finish inhaling it you should try another run at this same picture and see how much it changes.
exercise, even if it's just a short walk every day

thanks anon.
Am I underselling my cintiq for ~600USD? The value elsewhere seems to be around $800 to $1200 from other sellers. It's a dtk-2100.
Thanks Anon, I'll take what you said into account as it seems to be very true. Do you mean the book by James Gurney?

Hey /ic. I've been drawing black and white lineart for a number of years now and I want to start using some colour but I don't know what style of colouring to practice. It seems like every artist nowadays is a digital painter but it just doesn't hold my interest at all. I mean, I like the way it looks but every time I try to delve into it I just find the whole rendering process tedious. Are there other options or is cg painting the way of the future?

Digital is fine - I use photoshop for the linework and haven't touched real pencils in years. I think it's more the actual painting aspect that bores me. Picture attached as example of what I'm talking about. Anyone have any examples of different colouring styles that aren't this?

Yeah, the painting is what i'm trying to get better at, I've been mostly sketching until now. do you have any advice? I'm mostly having trouble with basics like figuring out a layer structure and whether I should use layer modes for shading and lighting (I probably will, since my favourite professional artists do).

I will do some paint studies tomorrow.
>And sorry about your ass.
I should eat more fiber

and portraits, still lifes, and landscapes are kind of it for me. I usually do still lifes, to prepare for portraits and landscapes. They're a good testing ground for my patience and new techniques.
the drawing is pretty dynamic but the painting is about as far from dynamic as you can get.
look buddy, if you're just gonna draw garbage still lives of shitty pottery and veggies, at least put the effort into it with beautiful strokes and better set ups. this legit looks like the work highschool kids would do
>better set ups

Anyone have Iain McCaigs shadowline book? I can't find it anywhere online and it costs 70 fucking bucks. Pls help an anon out.
Guys I need some help, I'm currently bookshoping on amazon and I need some good advice on fantasy art books, the awe inspiring, always close to your bedstand kind.

I already got the mtg zendikar book on my cart, it has some breathaking landscapes paintings and beautifully rendered ethereal creatures from the game.

Also the angelarium tarot deck because even though it is not an art book and I'm not planning to use them for divination I love the beautiful surrealistic interpretation of angels that peter mohrbaches has made.

In short I'm looking for the best museum worthy fantasy or surrealistic concept art you could think of

Come on, mang, the facial proportions are nearly the same as the non-chibi face. If you don't want other's opinions what are you doing on a critique board. I like your art but you seriously have issues with taking any sort of criticism
It's not even criticism in the first place tough. I squished her face compared to her usual proportions and that's why I called it chibi, you're saying it's the same but that's wrong. No need to get autistic about it.

Face is really cute but she looks kind of like somebody walked in on her and she's trying to think of what to say. What kind of feeling are you going for in the expression?

As a side note, the back feels a bit flat compared to the rest. It might be the angle.

I made some changes and tried rendering th back a bit. I don't have much in mind for the face other than "cute", but I like the scenario you built around it and might try to work with that
Oh hey fisher. I like it, but as the other anon said, have an idea and make it resonate through your hands as you draw.
In the sketch the tail was flat with lighter outline but now you increased its contrast, which steals attention away from the actually important area, her back and shoulders.

Digital for inktober is weakmode, technically you can do it but you're kinda missing the point of it all. Don't you got ball point pens or something?


Why is this so hard for people to understand?

Inktober is for ink. INK. Not pixels.
You can buy a pen pack for less than $10

Is work like your pic good enough for Inktober?

The body of the woman is too understated, she looks like she's part of the background. Render her as much as you rendered the Octopus.

Help educate me and make me woke, I need to make it
Just use some reference and keep drawing, look at her and tell me why she looks wrong; It is because she doesn't have a torso, her breasts get directly connected to her waists

Practice anatomy, after you reach a comfortable level with it, move your focus to other area like coloring/shading/perspective/gesture

How do you expect any answer with the lack of data. Post your work.
I literally have no work to post. Just a bunch of unfinished shit.
Post it.
Try finishing something. If you have a weak spot like hands or feet that prevents you from finishing it, don't start anything new. Overcome it even if it means relying heavily on reference without fully grasping the anatomy or form.
You'll have a much better grasp on when you'll get better if you actually face all the hurdles instead of working on the fundies without clear aim.

So I drew this last night. I have a really long way to go, but I'm forcing myself to draw at least once everyday to keep practicing.
I got a Wacom a few days ago and I'm enjoying it so far, getting used to it.

Now, how do you guys do the borders after sketching? as you can see in this example, my lines are all fucked up. I'm using SAI to draw, before I just took a picture of my pen drawings and used the curve tool to do the borders and digitalizing. Now I'm trying to use the pen instead but it ends up like this.
