No but really. Look out your bedroom window, and imagine everything you see through the window is just a 2d image made up of lines. Now trace the lines. And then practice creating an "imaginary window" in your mind's eye that yo ucan use whenever. That's the only useful thing you'll get from books like these

he has a solid grasp in his domain and has clearly proven his construction. He does sameface though and there are only so many sexual positions you can draw people in. In some of his art he just rotates existing mouths which is degen.

I admire his dedication to one area, even if I never progress to painting I would be content with sketching the human form fluidly.

I've been thinking about this. A woman was fired from her job as a educator because the boss found out she did porn in her free time there was a trial and she lost. I saw a nsfw artist mention that hes a teacher and that one of his students even found his crossdressing pics but there was no drama . So all this made me Is it ok to be an educator and be an nsfw artist in you free time. today sex workers are more accepted and have more rights

>>3395966
It really isn't. There are laws at least in california If your boss fires you for being black, or for being a veteran, a woman, etc.

Discriminating against someone is not someone that can be done. Have you ever read that big notice that employers are required by law to hang citing worker rights?

Have you ever had a full time job in your life?

In context with OP's quesiton, Kinuko from skull girls is the lead animator for Lab Zero games, she draws lewd (smut, vaginas, nipples) and she not only is employed, but regularly holds conferences and shit.

Damn I haven't drawn in a long time. I used to do it with my little sister, she'd be drawing a typical little girl's drawing and I'd be drawing some animal.
For some reason I could never get myself to draw something cartoony, it had to be realistic with perfect proportions.

You're never going to develop any skills with that attitude.
Look at pic related. Do you think the 5-year-old who drew it gave a fuck about how good they were? No, they just fucking drew it because it was fun. Obviously it's not an anatomical masterpiece, but at least there's some semblance of form that the child learned by making the drawing.

If you're looking for a place to post your cartooning then you've found the right general. This is /ic/s 1st and only merged hub where both Eastern and Western stylization can coexist peacefully, hence the double title. However, by community demand and long history, this is favorably an Anime general.
>Rules & Guidelines
(1) Any form of cartooning is welcome; so submit and receive feedback from others. (2) Please resize your images before posting. (3) Share your knowledge and (4) Remember to not be afraid of asking for critique. Most importantly I encourage you to keep discussion at a civil level, but you're more than welcome to share your opinions.

Anyone here have experience adding a Fine Arts minor to an unrelated major like computer science or something? Is it worth it to learn to draw in your opinion? The program includes two semesters of drawing and design fundamentals, as well as my choice of courses like figure drawing, painting, and advanced drawing (whatever that is lol)

Worth it to spend the extra money on these classes or nah? I don't expect to get a job doing art but it's a hobby I want to improve on for personal pleasure, and I feel that a real instructor would be a lot better for me. Thoughts?
>>
>>3395947
If youre doing CS as a major you may already know that art is not a way to earn lots of money. Just as me. Im going to a painting/drawing course every week and studying CS as a major. Improve does not come from a course like this but you will be in contact with art and other artists, wich is nice. If its too much money just forget about it and study at home.

Worth a try if you're interested.
The problem with art discords is if you let everyone in, it increases the amount of shitposting.
