I want to end every habit and behavior of mine that works against drawing. I already deleted my online video game accounts, deleted video games in general. stopped masturbating as much (still struggling but fighting a good fight), stopped wasting time on people that don't share my will for self-improvement, stopped consuming media as much and reduced my time browsing 4chan and youtube. I am still here so I am not fully ascended but I can take something useful out of this site while I am here.

So a question to anons who want to do the same thing and succedeed or still try to succeed, what are the tips you can give me? What I really want from life is meaningful relationships and meaningful achievements. I am willing to sacrifice everything for those.

If you have the willpower to drink your cum then you should have the willpower to not jerk off. In the end it doesn't really matter how many bad habits you kick if you're still not productive. Focus on doing more meaningful work and you'll have less time for compulsive behavior.

Not everyone burnsout with this method though. It's called a psychological transformation, when something clicks and everything changes.

Sounds like he hates the taste. Of course, what he doesn't realize is that anything you do alongside an orgasm is going to become enjoyable by association. Granted, he doesn't seem like the type to realize much at all.

Is tracing as viable as some claim it to be? Could you actually learn by just straight up tracing shit?

So I've recently wanted to start drawing latex.
I've studied a lot of images but if feels like I got the technique all wrong to make it look good.
Anyone got tips and tricks when it comes to drawing latex?
Not my image but something I use as a reference.

I mean >>4207497 pic related isnt likely to appeal to many girls but it's pretty soft compared to, say, the way Insex vids use latex hoods and masks (i.e to dehumanise the girls they were torturing)

If you like that gasmask by the way, it's probably one of the cheapest latex things you can buy since its old Soviet rubber surplus, $10 on eBay.

Kill yourself

You can tell shit's all fucked when /3/, /gd/, /sci/, /g/ and /diy/ are all dominated by people who are actually interested in getting jobs in their field

/ic/ used to be dominated by threads about concept art, freelance work, how to make a portfolio, photobashing, etc all related to the art industry and getting jobs.
But now it's nothing but anime porn and whining about talent.
The art industry hasn't gotten worse, if anything it's easier than ever to get into it. It's both bigger and more open than ever before.

What the fuck happened, why has everyone given up. Is there anyone here who actually wants to go pro anymore?

On the contrary it's only people who treat art as assembly line drudgery to get over with as quickly and efficiently as possible who make it today. If you care about your art you will never be able to strip it of everything that makes it yours so it can meet industry standards.

I was thinking about gitting gud and going to art school when I was in HS because I've loved sci-fi concept art my whole life and then I talked to people who actually worked in the industry and checked out some industry lectures and then I realized that I would probably end up killing myself if I ended up working as a concept artist so I decided against the whole endeavor.

Irs like you either sell your soul to coomers or get ground into paste by the industry. Hopefully, we'll be able to pave new paths forward for artists.

Sight size

Pros: teaches you to see proportion very strictly, good for ateliers because there is no subjective opinion, good for getting rid of innacuracy in the drawing so you can focus on shading, can be a time saver when studying the exact proportions and shapes another artist has used

Cons: rigid, methodical, actively discourages appealing stylising or exaggerating certain qualities, autistically rigid and may kill love of drawing in some, causes serious dependency on reference/subject and atelier conditions, very slow, no room for impressionism.

Best use of Sight Size is to quickly level up your accuracy and sense of proportion, but combine it with as much free expression, quick sketching, imaginative work etc as possible or you will be an autistic printing machine dependent on reference.

It's better practice than tracing
Also works on real life things which is what the technique was developed for, harder to trace those you know

Really? What do you draw?
I thought about joining some Mastodon federation and Gab, but it always had this "why bother?" aura to it.
And while I hate black people like everyone else, I wouldn't like to use a network where people mainly focus on talking about the subject they're not allowed to elsewhere (so, politics).

How's the ecosystem in your opinion?
