I've never read that particular book, though I have heard of it. The synopsis on wikipedia makes me very concerned though.

>Edwards's method of drawing and teaching was revolutionary when she published it in 1979. It received an immediate positive response, and is now widely accepted by artists, teachers, and others around the world. Underlying the method is the notion that the brain has two ways of perceiving and processing reality – one verbal and analytic, the other visual and perceptual. Edwards' method advocates suppressing the former in favor of the latter. It focuses on disregarding preconceived notions of what the drawn object should look like, and on individually "seeing".[3]

It sounds pretty much antithetical to classical methods and ideas, which emphasized the use of idealized figures and simplified, geometrical forms. Not something I'd recommend at all. Perhaps somebody who has read the book could comment on it better than me, but I would never recommend drawing in the manner the author seems to be suggesting. Do yourself a favor and have a look at Vilppu. Decide for yourself who makes more sense, Vilppu or Betty Edwards, author of the book.

I'm so bad at social media. I have like 6 followers... one is a bot.

Well, the over centralization of the industry towards PornHun has fucked over smaller studios hard and making it as independents is nigh impossible without crowdfunding. Porn stars are forced to escort in order to make ends meet. Combined with how much PornHub pirates content depriving them of revenue (see Mia Khalifa and other "artists")...yes, it can certainly be made unprofitable for anyone outside of the one percent. And that divide grows even worse.

If Visa and other payment processors begin the crackdown (which the blanket ban on non-com content on Patreon shows), yes or most certainly can be made unprofitable.

Even the one percent who profits and funnels all the degeneracy are not immune. Especially if people begin reporting Paypal accounts en masse for selling porn.

Quite comfortable with my dick. Thank you for your concern.

**Don’t aimlessly study the fundamentals or anime. Learn the fundamentals (form, values, color, composition, etc.) through properly copying anime.**

How to study anime/get better at imagination drawing/obtain a style/etc.:
>Find an anime reference you like (an illustration, screenshot, anime figure, 3D model, etc.)
>Find learning material that will help you reconstruct your ref using simpler fundamental elements
>Trace the ref using that construction
>Copy the ref using that construction
>Draw the ref from memory that using construction
>Repeat the process for the same ref multiple times and mix in other refs
>After studying a lot of refs, drawing from your head will become easier

**Focus on Tracing/Copying/Memory drawing the big shapes/values/elements first then later worry about the finer details. Focus on only a portion of a complex ref first then move on to studying the full ref.**

Is St. Peter's Basilica humanity's greatest and highest artistic achievement? Is there any possibility of surpassing it?
What is the purpose of this question? If you want an architecture thread just make an architecture thread, don't make some faggy whiny bullshit thread
I want to discuss what makes it artistically great, how it could theoretically be surpassed, or alternative works that others deem humanity's greatest and highest artistic achievement.
Well if you'd like to have an architecture thread maybe you can get it started with your thoughts on the Basilica
What are your thoughts?

Face might be a bit flat along with some other parts of the painting, and the colors are all too similar, feels like all the colors are the same dirty green color but with different values. Unless that's what you're going for of course.
Quite stiff, made mine look like some weird doll, disregard my stylistic changes and just start thinking about ways to make your drawings look more alive.
Too much contrast with the really dark dragon and really light backround, also a bunch of perspective and comp mistakes but just start looking at how great painters would've painted this exact scene and that might teach you some useful stuff

Ive always appreciated sycra's art and guide to style, he has odd taste that just seems to only harm his skill level though.

Character design I did from an old ms paint doodle.
Wanted a retro anime feel with a more modern aesthetic but I fuqin failed.
Thanks for the paintover, I appreciate the pointers. Though to be honest I feel the color changes alter the mood in a way I do not enjoy. You're right about the flat face, I'll try to work on that in the future.

You need to study anatomy, forms, perspective to make your drawings less flat. Rendering is pretty but that's only the cream on top.

>in the know about secrets

There seemed to be a couple anons who were quite knowledgeable about it

Is it possible to do a different action by repeating the same shortcut in autohotkey? Example; alternating between two blending modes with the same button (normal>overlay etc)

What code would you need to write to make this a thing? Also is it possible to introduce an additional timer to that action, example; as long as the key is being held down action/state2 is active, while it reverts back to action/state1 if undone. Cheers

bump for later
Wonder if it's possible to do the following:
When using a clone brush, after selecting the area to be cloned, change the tilt direction of your pen to offset the angle of the "sample" you are taking against the area into which it will be copied, and have it "lock in" once you start painting, if possible only for the duration of that stroke. Obviously the cloned object would lose some quality, but it should still be useful for composition and creating detail since it would allow you to replicate shapes in a way that feels organic.
Along the same lines: What about a clonebrush that shrinks or enlarges the area being sampled?
So I've tried it multiple times in various button alterations and ahk versions, also without the #IfWinActive ahk_exe Photoshop.exe limitation, but couldn't get it to work.
The code seems fine and didn't give any errors back, but it just won't register between it and keyboard, no change to blend modes, undo, etc.
I assume there is a key step that I'm missing.. maybe a specific script editor or something but idk

Anyways, thank you for your effort man. I'll try digging through some more google to see if I can get it to work somehow
maybe try to elaborate in more detail, it sounds a bit confusing

Ok I've managed to make ahk, or rather windows, recognize the code/hotkeys as actual buttons. Like pressing z in any empty field in Photoshop's Shortcuts menu will actually show it as alt+ctrl+z.

But for some reason pressing z or any of the other hotkeys, doesn't execute any of the commands while working, no undos, no switching between blend modes... there is a slight twitching when holding them as if 3-button shortcuts don't work together, or as if it's trying to jump between a different software specific shortcut even though the majority are blank.

I've assumed a simple press will just run any command smoothly and boost process speed, I mean I'm just curious if it's running for any of you guys nicely? it's been weeks but I'm still willing to try if it's as useful and snappy as I think it is
>On a different note;
Anyone who has the wacom remote is it possible to put stuff like alt+shift+o or
alt+shift+n on one of the keys, and does it actually execute properly while working? Would really appreciate some info on that

I personally find everything yoji shinkawa-esque great aesthetically. Although this is from metal gear rising so the artist is different, but still some of my favorite designs come out of that franchise.

How do you get this sort of soft, blended in, glossy lineart and finish? I really want to incorporate this into my style but it always ends up looking like soulless vectors because my lineart is too clean and a single weight all along, and my shading sucks ass.

(This is not a cumbrain thread I swear, the best pics to illustrate it were porn. The artists I want to imitate have all their step-by-steps behind patreon, too. I'm literally at the end of my rope.)
