Here is my deviantart for reference: http://z4m97.deviantart.com/

My name is Daniel. I've been practicing my fundamentals for quite a while now and I was thinking of making a drawing channel on YouTube teaching the basics of drawing and painting. I'm also thinking of making a premium course for people who are very serious and want 1 on 1 mentorship.

Anyway, my question is, would any of you guys be interested in learning from me if I did that? I think i have a pretty good understanding of fundamentals from perspective to values to colors and comp.

It's funny how much /ic/ underestimates the amount of time it takes to reach to gain a certain level of skill. Just because 1 out of a million artists can reach a high level in a few years doesn't mean everyone can. Check the improvement thread if you don't believe me

>b-but but they didn't study their fundamentals

I've seen artists on forums like conceptart and permanoobs who grind their fundamentals day in and day out and still progress no where as fast as talented folks like algenfleger

Just because I don't think my work is mediocre doesn't mean i'm a dunning kruger you fucking retard.

Here is a finished drawing.

Well for one, Sycra is old news. You must have missed out on the threads /ic/ would have on him a long while back.

Secondly, you're being very condescending towards pixiv artists for no good reason, it come off as snobby delusion. There are artists who post there who could paint circles around you and most of /ic/. Are they the majority of pixiv? Of course not, but that's true of most art sites.
bad anatomy, bad colour choices, awful attempt at rendering

people like you are much too arrogant.

Fury artists, how does it feel knowing that drawing dragons or other anthropomorphic animals doing lewd things is all you will be known for? Do you have art prospects beyond drawing furry lewds? Do you wish to become say a character designer or illustrator for a vidya but afraid that all the dragon dicks you draw will come back to bite you if your co workers found out?

How do you overcome this?

Not every furry artist draws lewd things. There's probably more than a few people out there that have no real connection to the furry "community". They just draw this stuff because they like it. Just speaking for myself, I don't think I'd ever be able to hack it in a professional artist capacity. So drawing stuff that pleases me, or sharing it online with others that like it is satisfaction enough.

I recall some incidents in the past where some internet detectives manged to discover the identity of someone that posted furry art online. They pretended to be concerned citizens and called the persons workplace and maybe mailed them samples of the person's work. That's a good reason to cover your tracks online, but I wonder how much setting up a way to purchase your art online makes your identity vulnerable.
>how does it feel knowing that drawing dragons or other anthropomorphic animals doing lewd things is all you will be known for?

In the online world? who gives a shit

>Do you have art prospects beyond drawing furry lewds?

I'm not a one trick pony

>I recall some incidents in the past where some internet detectives manged to discover the identity of someone that posted furry art online....
Stories? I don't recall ever hearing shit like this.
This was maybe 10 or 15 years ago; some guy who had a penchant for drawing demonic anthropomorphic rabbits with may some pregnancy themes(?). The guy drew a "thanks a lot assholes" picture. The guys at Something Awful way back in the day were talking about it. Swear I've heard other incidents of people getting phone calls at home, and parents getting involved, but this was years ago.

Maybe it is, how do we argue about what means what? Do folks that avoid sexual themes draw "anthropomorphic animals?"

No flex fountain pen will ever beat a dip nib.
oh i know, i have nib pens, but i also like fountain pens. i also modified a fountain pen pen to accept a G-nib.

I did this with a Jinhao but it had all sorts of problems, from blobbing to the nib drying out, the feed not keeping up, rusting, etc. I imagine the Noodler's pens would have better results thanks to the ebonite feed, but you'd still need to heat-set the nib whenever you replace it.
Ackerman makes fountain pens that fit all sorts of dip nibs, that might be worth a try.

Meanwhile I might order one of these from China. A sub-$20 piston filler that unlike the cheap Noodler's is made from PMMA resin, and it fits Pilot steel nibs.
i don't do tons of line work, although i draw with ink a bit. i like to use a brush more than a pen, even for things where a pen would probably be better. i didn't know people used fountain pens for artwork, seems a bit weird, but more power to you guys

It'll never beat a dip pen in sheer quality no, but in convenience it certainly does.

It's the reason I gave up using uses and switches to a brush pen.

just made tonight, thoughts?
It's got all the visual appeal of an airbrush painting on the side of a carnival wagon, I mean what the fuck
Face is nice but body is off especially chest

So, I went out and got myself a tablet finally. Told the sweet looking chubby chick at the best buy that my art skill was only "hang" on the fridge level and I just needed a tablet good enough for doodles. After she told me she didn't work there (who the fuck goes to best buy in a blue shirt?) I found the drawing tablets and choose the cheapest of the only brand they had; Wacom Intuos Draw ($80).
It came with ArtRage lite or something, didn't like it. I downloaded Autodesk Sketchbook Pro and wasn't about to subscribe to that shit so I bought Mischief and...it's pretty amaze-balls. So the tablet works great, drawing program is on point and I bookmarked the reference sites I spotted in the sticky.
But then, I started watching some porn and jerked off. After that I went to Taco Bell. When I got back home I ended up playing some Paladins on Steam. I eventually pulled myself out of the blackhole and started sketching but while I was looking at my references I ended up looking up porn again after looking through /b/ for some more references. I didn't even beat off, I literally just watched porn, trying to wrap my head around drawing those kind of curves and how cool tight skin looks oiled up.
So, I bought a tablet to look at porn and pretend I'm not a pervert, I think...
Anyone else out of their depths when trying to improve?

You're really sad. I'm going to make sure to distance myself from you so I don't become like you.
someone thought I was the staff at best buy once
I was playing solitaire on their demo laptops while wearing a gray hoodie and jeans, I don't know how the fuck that black lady thought I was staff.
People think any random person is an employee, and people wearing the goddamn uniform with a nametag aren't

The wonders of retail
I stopped at a supermarket after work once and an old dude just walked up and started asking me about random produce while I was picking some cabbage or something.

I work in construction and was wearing safety gear with the logo of the construction company at the time.
People are stupid.
Lol, I can somewhat relate to this, though i've developed much more self control over time. Try practicing from something that wont give you a boner just to develop a habit of drawing regularly( dont know what kin of shit you're into) , anatomy books are good for that
If you have trouble keeping yourself from gaming, uninstall the games until you draw regularly and enjoy it

Please don't ever comment on painting again.
wow no-one complimented your funny tabs, surprised.

anyway, i have a feeling that his course is just that shitty careful mixing careful sighting thing that all online oil painting course teach for some reason. this video is an okay guide to daubing on paint though i guess.
