Is anyone else extremely picky about their working environment?

I've found that ever since I moved into this new apartment, I havent been able to concentrate on drawing at all.
My neighbor doesnt work, is most likely partially deaf and shrieks over her phone whenever shes home. Shes constantly in and out, will leave for five minutes, stomp around the house for ten, and leave another five minutes, several times a day, shrieking loudly over the phone and slamming doors so hard it shakes the entire building and rattling windows. Then her son comes home and yells at her and smokes pot in the driveway while his friends blast rap music at 10,000 decibels. It's like living next door to a circus.

Also my drawing table is tiny and I cant get proper arm movements in the limited space.

it's a lot cheaper in the country though. you don't need your own ranch and mansion on 100 acres. just an acre and a shitty used trailer for 20k 15 miles out of town. there, you get your peace and quiet and maybe a vegetable garden.
pro tip: make your neighbor scream every day when she's alone at home. Or are you implying that she hasn't been sending you secret invitation signals by slamming the door hardly?

You need to able to read peoples emotions as an artist
Fun image to explore. That book on the steps gave me a chuckle.

hows your process? i think it seems like you dive too quickly into specific areas instead of making sure your outline is on because i dont think your figures are quite right. also, use a sharper, harder pencil.
i think it's good, everything's good except the face. also i guess this fellow is meant to look like he has shoulded(?) shoulders right? but even his shoulderpards look shoulded(?). I think it you were good you'd be able to make him look slouchy(?) while still letting his armor look like its acutally got structural integrity. put some effort into hands and feet, and the kneecaps need attention too.
impressive. too much focus on tedious detailing, too little focus on creating interest with shading and perspective, though.
sorry, no idea

People probably said something similar about digital art when all illustration was done traditionally.
yeah it already exist it called photobash
even with this tool people still need skilled photobasher to finish their product
It can only do one thing though
Yes, technology will completely will soon become better at drawing than humans, so what?
Humans are creative creatures, they love to create, even if there are robots that create better than them they will keep creating anyway, not to get better than the robots but for the fun of it. Same goes for things like programming and writing, humans will still do them even if there are robots that do them better, because we like to do them.

What is /ALT/?
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.

I can't tell what you're going for, it feels like you're going for an extreme top town perspective, but you've drawn it like its just a generic frontal view., the lower half especially looks like you've tried to do the extreme perspective deal, but the proportions just look normal.

This is Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907) by Pablo Picasso. I have an art history quiz tomorrow and I am 90% sure this is the painting they’re gonna give us.

The quiz is to just analyze the painting. I wanna hear your two cents on it

>I wanna hear your two cents on it

There are different angles you could use. Remind your teacher that Picasso lied by pretending that this artwork was the fundation of cubism (Source is "Georges Braque, le défi silencieux").
The original title was "The Brothel of Avignon" and should have been about the Fear of getting sexual diseases but the artist never finished it (not because of laziness though, as it is documented that he made a hundred drawings of it beforehand). See picture for more reference on the subject.
If you really want your teacher to fail you, talk about the cultural appropriation of African art.

My relationship ended after a number of years because I thought I was something I was not, this event then lead me to leave my illustration course majority of people whom I considered my friends stop talking to me. My ex then dated one of said friends in the group which destroyed me even further. The one or two friends who were happy to keep contact I fucked up on one person because I said I would support them and their project but due to massive debt I couldn’t. I’ve now paid it off but I had to work hard to even get to this point and the time it took to fix this is the time it took for this to be fixed it’s too late, he doesn’t need someone flakey in their lives so we both just stop talking which I fully blame myself for. The other person after exploring what I thought I was with him has now ghosted me, though we’ve been friends since we were 11 and now I’m deep into my 20’s so it feels like a part of me has been ripped away.

I’ve always been quite isolated but this is for the first time where I’ve truly been alone, only thing stopping me from ending it all is having a little brother to teach. I’m so proud of his progress and every painting he has sent me, but it feels harder and harder to keep going.

It feels like I’m nearing the end, I still have a love for drawing and painting but I don’t know how to keep my spirits up. I’d say I’m hoping for an easy answer but I know it doesn’t work like that, thinking about leaving and starting fresh somewhere.
Some advice from Marco bucci is to just tell the client straight up your struggling and explain to them while your still gonna try your best it is a personal blindspot in terms of skill for yourself. They’ll be happier knowing than not.
must not have been too important if it was only 1 day ago and you forgot about it desu ne
Hook yourself to a big project, perhaps. Staying focused on something will keep the dark thoughts away.

what makes exactly an artwork soulless? is it the lack of saturation? the stiffness or composition,etc? sometimes when i see X artwork i feel the drawing lacks of something,even when the anatomy and perspective is ok, but i cant tell what is it exactly

Why not just say that >>3905738 has a better silhouette, value, colors, edge control and looks of the model etc?

"soul" and "soulless" is just the noob's way of coping with an inability to formulate real critique. These threads are ngmi trash and you should all be ashamed. Fuck off and go draw or something.
Looks like it was painting from life while
>>3906054 looks like it was copied from an airbrushed photo

Fun fact photorealism isn't actual realism because photos pick up sharp details that the eyes can't see

As humans, we have a peripheral view, so the object of our fixation is sharp, but the surrounding areas are more blurred.
This is one of the few times when the soulless meme actually is true.

They are basically human printers. They trace a projected image onto their paper, then use a grid guide them to copy every pixel as it is in the photograph.

In every time lapse video in this style they always start with the guidelines already drawn because they either traced or used a projector.
>In every time lapse video in this style they always start with the guidelines already drawn because they either traced or used a projector.

Tho I have to side people like Mark Crilley dont do that, but he also doesnt draw faces like these guys, but objects. He regards this method as a studying method rather than a form of drawing, and he in a way kinda started the "hyperrealistic drawing" craze.

TF2 has a ton of soul. I feel like the cartoony artstyle is familiar but when you break it down there really isn’t any other art or music that is close to TF2. The characters have more purpose beyond Disney tier “oh let’s give them big eyes” or “let’s make the face crooked because they are a peasant”

**If you make good copies of anime *properly*, you will be able to draw good anime. If you make bad copies of anime or bad anime styled drawings from photos, you will get better at drawing bad anime. Please think carefully about how you are studying.**

This is the thread for:

1. Posting your anime studies:
>Copy exactly but don’t do it aimlessly. Integrate drawing concepts (construction, color theory, tracing, etc.) into your studies in order to pull information from the reference (anime art, figurines, tutorials) that you can later use for your original work.
>Do a single study multiple times to ensure you address all of your mistakes and memorize the correct process in your head. Attempt drawing it from memory as well.
>You will only be able to effectively deviate from your reference after doing exact copy studies accurately and consistently.
2. General anime style discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.
>Drawing methods, study habits, resources, tutorials, tools, software, etc
>Be specific and try to post a sample of your study attempts before asking for help.
