I realized how huge of a difference it makes when you color lineart. On certain drawings it literally transforms the whole thing.

Nobody wants to ban AI art.
This is not AI art, this is photobashing from copyrighted material, medical files, police files, cheese pizza, guro and who knows what the fuck else.

It's a lawsuit in the making the first time a "smart" marketing crone uses it for an ad campaign and some pixel comber finds three nanometers worth of prepub pussy.

What if someone doesn't fit the standard proportions of the loomis method? How would I gauge proportions then? Sometimes prople's proportions deviate from the average. For example, pic related, Ron Pearlman, has a much longer nose to chin length, whereas the loomis method suggests the proportion from the nose to the chin should be equal from to the glabella (brow.)

I want to do portraits but unfortunately I think the loomis method is flawed and will create people with essentially the same face.

Here is what Loomis said specifically about the matter. It's not a an absolute law, just one method of rendering the human figure. This is something that always gets brought up with Loomis but he's actually quite flexible, I don't know where this idea came from.
>>
>>6401642
what the fuck are you talking about
the proportions are examples and every book literally says to just measure something like an eye, an ear, lips, or the width of a wrist or something to do additional, precise measurement.
The proportions Loomis provides are default settings. They're not required. Why are you people like this. Why do you guys take all tutorials and books so literally.
It baffles me that any human can live their life going "Oh, man. I really want to eat these instant noodles in sauce but the package says 2% milk and all I have is lite. What do I do? Starve?"

You answered your own question. It allows for loli and shota shit when western platforms would straight-up banhammer you for it. Patreon won't even let you post art of imps, goblins, midgets or flat-chested girls because it's considered pedo-pornography in their eyes, even if you don't post it in the platform itself- Their mods check your social medias.

Jesus thats psycothic.

I tried Fantia and they seemed to finally fixed their english interface and their File/Tier system management is actually pretty cool, you can even look at your files in full from the edit post mode instead of doing so from itself, only downsie is that you might as well rely on japanese followers when they show up since there's been an issue with what credit cards work anf which dont due to the recent stupidity of Aishit (heard something about bypassing with vpn but who is gonna drop 150 a year and just to for that?) and you cannot NOT have a free peek tier and cannot change/delete it.

Through the internet, you, along with everyone else, have access to more information than you know what to do with. The sheer amount of people the average person corresponds with, compared to all other ages, would make the incel of yesteryear blush.

Parents aspire to give their children a better life through the accumulation of wealth. Their children, born into wealth, know not what to aspire to, and thus they long for an idyllic return to nature. They begin to wear poor clothing, sing songs, imbibe intoxicants and seem to avoid growing up. In their parents eyes, they are lazy. In the mind of the youth, they avoid the hard labors because their mind can't comprehend working for what they already have.

I thought I had it bad growing up, I can't even imagine what Gen Z is going through. I at least, am grateful that I had to remember peoples phone numbers and didn't have this insurmountable pressure to "gain followers" and mistake them for friendship.

Stop worrying about the future, stop worrying about now, stop worrying about the past. In every problem lies an opportunity and there is no longer a place in this world for deceit (I recognize that bulge!)
Start thinking. Stop thinking you need to reply to every notification, the internet is a faux paradigm for humanity, and bad for your health.

If there is no culture left, art is dead. If art is dead, make new culture. If there is nothing left to burn, you have to set yourself on fire. Look inward, the very essence of meditation is putting the glare on yourself and being brutally honest. Society burns a man on the surface, but meditation will burn him throughout, to the very core.

I hate drawing, that is a nightmare for me.
I have studied drawing for more than a year.
I have longed for creation since I was a child, and I also want to do something during the painful time.(Nothing to do just pain for me)

But after trying it out, I can't get rid of ocd and perfectionism.
I only have a longing for creation, but I don’t know what I want to draw.
I'm also afraid of making any mistakes, and I'll spend hours drawing a line repeatedly just to not make a mistake. I know this is inefficient, but I don't know how to overcome it.
I always wonder if my practice is wrong, which makes me unable to stick to any kind of practice.
I'm so jealous of people who can draw whatever they want
I really really want to love to draw,but I guess I'm not suitable for painting.
What should I do.i really want to draw.

Take a blank piece of paper, and with a pencil, scribble on it for 3 seconds. Then with a pen,try turning part of the scribble into something that the random shapes suggest to you.

And as test for yourself, attempt a larger work,and do the required homework. That being approaching the project piecemeal,thinking of the scene and working out how the characters are interacting with each other. Compose on very cheap paper very quickly, rough sketches to place people and props,and the angles of view involved. Then you design the elements of the picture. In sketchbooks, taking your time to be experimental. Then,once you are happy with your final pictures, you can refer to them as you lay out the penultimate work. In this one,Ihad to think about what these Magmamen were like,and the final result is only serviceable, but the 5 previous attempts in my research sketchbook were far worse. Remember that you have no time restraints, so taking the time to try new things is now. Even Davinci liked to draw bits of things.

You need to get rid of perfectionism and embrace failure. Get all those mistakes out on paper, the sooner the better. That's the only way to improve

Why does it feels like almost all american comics are colored "the same way" regardless if they're usual Marvel/DC shlock, Image or indie stuff? I feel like the approach to rendering and color choices might be one of the biggest factors in legit differences between western and eastern art, alongside shape design.

Contemporary "American" comic have shading in the coloring, however, because the colors are done by somebody other than the artist it isn't cohesive. The artist does the inks making it look good in black and white, but the use of these blacks messes up the value profile. That's why flat colors such as >>6402724 look better; it allows the ink work to look good while adding color.

try. If you get lucky then that is your first episode. If it is good maybe others will join.

Odds of artists jumping on some random's show are pretty low though. It's risky for them as you could just be some weirdo out to create drama (a.k.a. "content") on their expense.

The better I get at painting and anatomy the more impressive this gets.

Hey /ic/, I've noticed that many artists here are very lost when it comes to learning art on their own, and the books on the sticky are not very useful, I've seen users from here practicing with those books and never getting any good result. That's why I decided to make this guide after asking a lot of artists friends and by my own experience too. You don't have to strictly read the books in the picture, but i think these resources are the most helpful and complete out of them all. If you're a newbie artist don't hesitate to follow this guide so you don't end up going back and forth like me when learning art. Hope you like it.
