Is Gobelins a good art school? I always thought they were supposed to be one of the best animation schools in the west.

Yeah it’s cope, but it’s also coming from ai troons wanting artists to lower themselves down to their level so they can feel like one of them. Then you have genai companies wanting artists to subscribe to their paid models, they’re using fear to market it

>>7123539
some drawings from 2022 to some /co/ drawings 2 weeks ago?

I remember the drawings on the left taking me ages to do too - the ones on the right take me like 30 minutes to do now? + 10-20 minutes if I colour them?

good thread OP it's nice to see progress laid out
>>
>>7132595
turns out these are from 2021. This witch is from 2022 - this originally took me about a day to draw - this redraw was around 45 minutes for both drawings and coloring. While the character appears more expressive now, I think original has superior coloring but I'm gonna chalk that up to the program I used, CSP compared to drawpile here

I used to fiddle around with Photoshop, finding source material online and morphing them with filters in search for stuff that I could use in Second Life. This was a texture meant for a build,and originally was an orange photo of dripping ice. I find true abstract art respectfully incomprehensible, not a thing that I normally spend the rare drawing time on,but lately I have been tossing out surreal imagery in some new comics,but I abandoned them in favor of other projects,but they have potential if I bothered to give the ideas more development instead of a plunge directly to the Comic Standard Bristol board that I have a limited supply of,then I might have continued it. I I'll post one next. It has a character drinking Chaos tainted wine,and the brief transformation sequence it manifests.

Have made and attempt yet? Have you ask yourself what is it about it that you like?

a good drawing is the aftermath of having fun. it's what is left on the page after you had fun with your pencil

if you ever think anything like "I hope this turns out good/is up to a certain standard of quality/I hope I become great" while you are drawing you will not make a good drawing

I think you're entangling outcomes of expression with something on the order of desire.

I agree that what's left is a product of utensil function. here for brevity i'll say f(x) = x times "fun" divided by "I hope this turns out good" and there's like a graph where the function is in the "actually good" quadrant or the "actually bad" quadrant

I agree that desires or expectations can negatively impact creativity and I also think defining "good" with a singular judgement about whether or not I was thinking "I hope this turns out good" is an insufficient parameterization.

There are no good drawings(obstensibly, no bad drawings) there are just drawings and our values layered on top saying that the drawing is good or bad.

i think its a matter of messing around with the pen pressure settings in your drawing program/tablet driver. pen pressure further into the 'soft' curve should give you that kind of line weight variety. i think. its been a while since i messed around with it

For the love of fuck I can't get my XP pen drawing monitor to only display the same shit as my main monitor. I literally had it working not too long ago, but some fucking update or something fucked it up. I can get it to work just fine when connecting to my laptop, but I want to use my PC.
The settings don't do shit and the XP pen display always functions as a separate monitor and it's becoming a real pain in the ass.
No matter how much I try to reword my Google search, all the results are people who WANT to use this feature, and nobody trying to disable it.
>everything I click on this options menu keeps the tablet displaying this second monitor
>click the dropdown to select different monitors
>set full screen
>customize screen area
No combination of any of these settings changes literally anything.
Also as an aside, my computer keeps fucking changing where it saves my screenshots and now it's saving them to some retarded "gamer" folder or something. God in fucking heaven fuck Windows and their dumb fucking updates.

>how fucked am I in term of making it?
Depends on what you mean by 'making it', generally that's used to refer to getting an industry job, is that what you're going for? If so, I think you're going to have a hard time, if not practicing enough to get good, or having the time to build a strong portfolio, or learning technical skills needed from you (3D perhaps?), then just trying to break in - which seems like a job in of itself. You can totally do it, but you're going to have to really bust your ass doing it, and become very disciplined and follow a strict schedule, and find ways to juggle interacting with your family, and following that schedule (doing studies in the lounge-room while your kids are watching the television for example).
Know what you want to do,
Work out what skills you need,
Work in a planned way to obtain those skills,
And when you have those skills, spam out applications.

If you just mean practicing and getting good, and having hobby projects? Totally, you can do it my dude.

>>7130162
I think you should decide the choice of whether or not to invest in this prospect on how it'll make you feel about your life from a grander perspective, rather than how long it'll take. do you want to be somebody that draws for a living? would that fulfill your life? would the absence of this endeavor feel like too great a loss in the grand scheme of things? If your answer to these questions is an emphatic "yes.", with no hesitation- then I would say that you owe it to yourself to try regardless of "being late".

You're hesitation seems based on this idea of having already missed the bus, and that you're now locked into this path forever. but the thing is, at 30, you still have (hopefully) more than half of your remaining years left to live. given even a small fraction of that time, there's an amount of free time you can squeeze into this effort and turn up something substantial; but it won't be easy. and a large portion of that difficulty will be balancing the discipline with the enjoyment.

don't look up at the peaks you're climbing towards; keep your head down at the ground in front of your feet, and focus all of your efforts on stepping forward on the ground you see, and do it every day. It is impossible not to progress with this lifestyle.

I'm 31 and i started less than a week ago, so far it's crazy fun and i can absolutely see reaching my low goal of being able to draw quick rough sketches for shitposting purposes in no time. If anything, I think mature brain is pretty good for drawing purposes, I find it extremely easy to notice what's wrong with my pictures and then fixing it up is just the matter of RNGing all kinds of approaches until it looks better, sometimes googling for a tutorial on a specific problem I have. I'm drawing the same way i'm programming in day work, find issue, look for root cause, resolve issue, repeat until it gets better. It's a very pleasant process. Got an iPad, standalone digital thing is great because I can just pick it up at any free moment I get and then scribble around, even if just a little bit - i think that mention might help you with your concerns on free time.

Don't think too much and just join me on my quest for getting better, it's fun. I assume you have no need to become good in a fixed time frame, though not sure if you're expecting to go pro or not, would be easier to give you an opinion if you'd define what exactly "making it" is for you. As long as you're not setting unreasonable goals, it's an extremely peaceful and pleasant hobby, if only you'll accept that elementary schooler tier doodles are part of the process.

A thread for recommending and sharing brushes/digital art assets.

>Publicly editable rentry for CSP assets. Feel free to contribute brushes you have purchased. Assets that have been deleted from the store are also welcome to be uploaded here.
https://rentry.org/CSP_materials

>CSP assets store wishlist
https://rentry.org/Brush_Wishlist

>"What brush does this artist use?"/"What brush looks like this?"
1.)Search "brush (from:artisthandle)" or "assets.clip-studio.com (from:artisthandle)" on twitter if that's where they post mainly. Make sure to set it to the Latest tab to see the artist's tweets. Or use Nitter.
2.)Search brush posts on their Pixiv Fanboxes/Booth/Patreon. Then try to see if it's on kemono or archives.
3.)If none of the searches work, then ask here.

Reminds me when i used to drive for uber. I was a 3 star driver, so i switched up. No music, no talking. Before long, i was back up to 4.99.

If you have the personality, talk and engage, if not, keep quiet and focus on your target audience. People will project their own fantasy of who you are or just buy what your selling. they may not want your personality polluting their favorite fandom or piece of art they enjoy. I dont care for invader zim anymore because JV became a leftist commie faggot. I dont want that thought popping into my head when im enjoying a cartoon.

Im sure there is an argument saying "seperate the art from artist, idiot," but its all personal preference. I dont listen to last train home from the lost profits despite its quality because the lead singer raped an infant. i cant seperate that. its a little much, but i digress.

Do what works for you. Keeping your mouth shut providing slop to ride on hashtags trending is perfectly viable, if youre making art like classical or 'high brow' using the right hash tags is still important. anyway.

"better to keep your mouth shut and be mistaken for an idiot than open it and remove all doubt."
