Alright /ic/, after a quarter of my life wasted, I'm ready to start from the basics and learn the "fundies". Where do I start?

Fool-proof plan to master art

> No? Draw another object
> Yes? Draw another object
> Repeat until satisfied or dead
>>
>>5243011
well... that depends on a lot of things op. first off what do you want to do? doing portraits for example is down a very different road than illustration.
>>5243175
this is foolproof indeed so yeah you can start with that so you dont get overwhelmed
there are a lot of books out there, reading them should be a very big priority since its stuff you dont need to waste time reinventing. start with hamptons figure drawing design and invention to give you a rough idea of what this is all going to be about
you dont have to draw anything from it for now just read it
check out drawabox.com for more information on drawing from imagination
check the sticky
look at a lot of art and find what direction you want to go in
i think at that point you can literally go "hm howd they get to where they are" and figure out the rest on your own, especially with all the information the former listed things give.
get to it! dont be intimidated and dont be afraid to be bold and curious
art is fun, and fun is yours to have

You need an Apple iPad Pro 12.9 first, that's what all the professional artists are using.
>>
>>5243822
Yes! This! I LOVE my Apple iPad Pro 12.9 with the Apple Pro Pencil 2. It's the tool of choice for any modern artist that needs to draw on the go or at home! The Apple iPad Pro 12.9 has enough battery life to last you a whole 3 hours before needing to recharge, but don't worry! You can get an Apple iPad Pro 12.9 Lightning Cable Charger for only 79.99 USD! Buy your Apple iPad Pro 12.9 today at your local Apple Store. I love my Apple iPad Pro 12.9.

Anyone remember that /ic/ poster going by the handle "nickleflick" who started out in a /beg/ thread trying to draw this robot girls ass? Then he got retweeted by some big industry guys and suddenly exploded in popularity, his work was being posted everywhere. Now when I search for him all his accounts are deleted and the only evidence he ever existed are his name on rule34 websites.

WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED??

HE MADE IT BIG AND THEN CRASHED AND DISAPPEARED

WTF

This. Just learning the anatomy won't getnyou there. You can learn some very simple anatomy basics for starters but it really has to grow over time in conjunction with your other skills. You'll always be studying anatomy to a certain extent.

>someone correct me
Its not as open as it should be yet. But you set up an account with say a metamask wallet. Buy some Eth, 1 is fine, from coinbase. Send the ETH to metamask and then find a site like Rariable to set up a NFT. You draw it and then I believe pay the Eth gas fee to list it. Rariable does take way too much still. Only 10% of sale price goes to the artist but you can see what some of its like right now.

https://app.rarible.com/

This stuff is pumping. I imagine once you establish yourself as a highly wanted artist you can start to sell more stuff at a higher listing price.

Someone sold some anti trump 9 second video on there too for $6 million recently for example.

The reason its desired is because its on the eth chain, every TX can be traced. So every artwork can be traced back to the original creator to verify its authenticity. Idk, just thought some anons here might want to check it out to make money.

Problem is, everyone thinks they're qualified to be a gatekeeper.

Is drawing a good hobby if I’m not serious about it? I would draw everyday but don’t know if there are better hobbys like writing or playing guitar. I also don’t want to grind looms like an autistic incel

what a retarded question

why do you ask this, you already know you don't really give a fuck. If you enjoyed drawing, you'd be drawing now just for fun. A hobby is about spending time doing what you want, not a weird time burner. Go eat grass or watch paint dry

Don't fall for the no-sleep meme. Sleeping anything less than 6 hours MINIMUM will make you garbage at whatever you do in just a few weeks AND you will also feel like shit to boot. Getting little hours of sleep is a jewish meme for the golems to make them cope and feel pride for their shit work life balance. There is no arguing with physiology. Willpower can't overcome physical limitations.

about 3 hours faster

>>5241301
I only do 30 mins or so at a time when studying with regular breaks or I end up drawing like shit. I can only go 3 hours on an actual piece rather than practice. Everyone's speed is different, I feel like my own progress is fine.
>>
>>5241301
>How should I practice during those hours?
learn something new as often as you can, every day if you can
remember to take notes
learn the same subject from 3 different sources, and always have questions running through your head. you shouldn't be going on "auto-pilot" that often, especially when you study

Posted a few days ago my first attempts at sketching. General feedback was my drawing looked flat and off balance. So here is what ive done since. Proportions are inhuman by design as I thought that would be more fun.

"Contour" is the outside edge of an object, or in the case of cartoons, the outline of the character.

One common exercise in drawing classes is to draw objects using only the outside contour, starting with simple objects like coffee mugs, and then moving to more complicated objects. Two classes I took, one in high school, and one in college, had the final exercise for contour drawing a tree, drawing only the contour.

For the beginning phases, think of "contour" as "outline".

i don't get why everyone is railing on you, i see an obvious improvement at least on the right arm and that front leg. you went from cartoonish ovals to something that resembles more structured boxes with the muscles wrapping around it.

i wouldn't play with proportions until you nailed how proportions are supposed to be like in the first place so that you don't need to explain that it's "by design" because it would be obvious and would show.

i would continue studying whatever you're learning off from, but this time focus on the torso/clavicle/neck area, hands and feet and the pelvis. no one can tell if it's balanced or not if you don't draw how the feet are planted, he might as well be floating in space.
