Play these both at the same time, it also works good with kirby comps.
If sexuality was a choice, no one would be attracted to men. You can use women for any kind of drawing and it'll be popular while for men you are very limited.
this is all I here from you, little girl.
I honestly cannot enjoy porn unless it's drawn by women. Men just draw it so in your face, like Kyle and BBCChan all the features are so exaggerated and just no. Women make the fuckers and fuckees have more delicate features, and there's more sensuality than just LICK FEET or FUCK IN THE ASS.

>What does a sudden onset of an arc of slashing light on the periphery of one's eye indicate? Is this urgent or not?

>It is urgent and you need to see your ophthalmologist very soon. The inside of an eye is filled with a thick, clear jelly called the vitreous humor. As we age, the vitreous humor loses some of its water content and shrinks. At that point it is no longer big enough to fill the entire inside of the eye and it pulls away from the retina. As it pulls away, it often tugs on the retina and that causes an arc-like flash of light in the periphery of the vision. A small number of people who undergo this normal process will develop a tear in the retina or a detachment of the retina. This can be vision threatening and could result in blindness if not treated soon enough. Anyone with the symptoms of flashes of light with or without new black spots (new vitreous floaters) in their vision must be examined by the ophthalmologist right away.
I'm very certain it was just migraine, it hits all the symptoms perfectly along with the headache. I just slept through it mostly and woke up fine.

How do you learn to make weird / creepy artwork? Do you have to have a weird / creepy personality?
20 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
No, but that the artist has a feeling of upset or grief and sorrow might have been a progenitor of the art which is natural enough I suppose. Or that it's within the audience's gaze and not the creator's psyche is as possible.

Not that it matters but what sketchbooks do you guys use.
Canson Universal Sketch
w&n smooth heavy weight
my brother-in-law bought me a moleskine sketchbook, it has a yellowish tinge to it and is a bit transluscent, if workings with markers or sharpies it bleeds through.. the format is slightly smaller than an a4, which is pretty handy since it's not too big and not too small.. it's a softcover and you can pretty much bend it all the way around the spine, all in all I'm happy with it, the next one I buy will have slightly more tooth to it because I like it

Hey guys. I never asked anyone to criticize my drawings before, but now I really feel it's time.
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
the painting and anatomy aren't very good but the drawing is okay, the lighting is pretty good(in concept), sets a mood. pretty boring though.

boring is boring, remember the point of art is always always to be worth looking at, even your basic bitch anatomy sketches should be pretty if you ever want another living person to see them.

bit worried you've got a bit o' t' old dunning-kruger. you do understand that it's not very good right?

for advice, i think you're on the right path, you just need more practice and probably should do an extensive anatomy survey.
The light source is off. I dont know how the back of his shoulders and his chest is illuminated. Where is the light coming from? Also soften up the muscles. Real contours arent defined by black gaps, some muscles arent seperated at all, many overlap.
The English language doesn't work like that.
Think like a sculptor. Think of the muscles as parts of an overarching form and how the light hits it. That said, there's a draw thread. Next time post there for crit instead of creating a thread.

>He is disliked due to all the plagiarism shit and straight out copying original works, there were even photos with just copy pasted big eyes on them.
I can believe it because some of the drawings do look like they were "inspired" by famous drawings. They look too similar and the girls look so much the same. I wish someone would compile a few photos together as examples.
>Copying more from the photo is not tracing when my guy does it.
Come on people are supposed to try to be original and create their own stuff not try to copy from a full photo.

"Making it" is 90% luck.

If you remember Youtube back in 2008-2012, you may remember Pewdiepie gaining popularity around that time. To this day, people have tried to figure out what he did that got him to become so famous.

You can analyze it all you want, using as many subjective or objective observations as you can make. He's funny, or he's entertaining. But there are plenty of people who do exactly what he does. So, why him? Why did he get super-stardom while everyone else was left in the dust, with only a handful managing to be successful riding his tailwind?

Luck. He got noticed. That is literally it. Whether it's a girlfriend/boyfriend, a video game, a TV show, or an internet personality, people always have "their guy". More often than not, popularity is like a snowball. Once it gains traction, it just keeps rolling faster and faster, getting bigger and bigger. Nothing seems to be able to stop it.

And now, to route this conversation towards what we actually give a fuck about. Making it in art.

If you've ever been to patreon and really looked around, you may have noticed that there are many sakimichan-type artists out there. But, there are only a couple that "hit it big". It's the same effect. Sakimichan got noticed. That's it. Does it matter that she's very skilled? A little.

Have you analyzed the mid-range to mediocre tier of artists on patreon? It's the same thing. A sea of unnoticed artists, a handful of successful ones and one or two superstars. What makes the superstars so much more successful than the other ones if they're just as mediocre as the others?

Luck. They got noticed.

This board is so adorable. All these "epiphany" posts are the most obvious things a normal functional adult knows.
pewdiepie had luck, sure.

"making" it in the same way in art would require luck, sure.

but if you actually just want to be employable, then all it takes is time and effort. you could even be a brainlet and you would make, might take 10years instead of 5 but it's doable.
Using youtubers as an example is also a major flaw. Let me explain:
Pewd and such release many videos a day. Which means that they aren't producing content with real intent, they just follow what's popular at a given time.
I mean, you can't plan, write, play and produce 3 scripts a day everyday. You have to set up a routine and stick to it (example, playing vidya), with the occasional change to stay fresh, but that's it.
Their content is nothing revolutionary. What draws viewers is their personality and some details (I, for one, consider that the voice quality of a youtuber is its most important feature). In other words, you don't follow that kind of people for the quality of their work, but for their presence. You don't treat them like artists, but as friends.

If I was to consider them as drawers, pewd would be writing a daily webcomic, while others would be making an illustration a month. Saying that the monthly illustrators didn't maje it because they don't have the same audience is just a flawed reasoning
Watch the Film Theory video on Pewdiepie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgMqhEMhVV8 I don't usually like that channel, but it shows how that guy got famous. It's not a mystery anymore in the internet. Maybe in the old days the mechanism to get famous was more subjective, but not in the days of big data and algorithms.
This, if your standards of "making it" is becoming a millionaire through simply doing what you love (which is all of the people you listed), you're literally never going to be happy in your entire life.
