How do you actually grow a following on this hell hole?

It actually is that simple. There's no such thing as an amazing artist people just scroll past.
If you're posting regularly and you're getting no followers then you're probably just not good enough and that's that.
If you have even a minimal amount of skills you can just slap your dick on twitter with no care for hashtags or post times or any of that shit you think matters and people will follow you still.

I'm thinking about opening a webstore and selling merch that includes fanart. I see that a lot of others artists get away with it and I'm sure that they don't have a license for these characters, so I wanted to know the exact legality of it and how artists get away with selling these products outside of conventions

Pic related is officially licensed merch

Do so at your own risk. Will Terry tried this with chibby's based art on existing copyrighted characters, using Kickstarter as his money vacuum. It was going gang busters with pledges then it got shut down.

I accepted I might commit suicide someday, but I wanna get revenge on the world before I go. Nothing drastic like Elliot Rodger (god rest his soul), but I was thinking I could use my art to harm humanity, or the people that made my life this way.

Something like making extremely specific and prolific degenerate porn or taking the path of retards like that one Twitter roastie with the “empowered women” vibe to accelerate societal downfall, or perhaps making a wave of BLACKED porn featuring Jewish women so I can strike back at our overlords. Or maybe I could just spread a bunch of disinformation and make the world go crazy? Racially inflammatory work stoking tensions between whites/blacks/muslims, causing more and more chaos and violence as a result, as I take both sides behind their backs? Who knows...

I'm trying to compile a list of street fighter/capcom character artists because I've always loved their styles but I can't remember some of their names.Can you please help me compile a list of the legends of the past? Right now the only ones I can remember off the top of my head are:
Daigo Ikeno
Bengus
Akiman

It's a new official art book. You have to be cautious with this one because they've released so many Street Fighter/Capcom artbooks over the years that you realize you're buying the same artwork over and over.

According to the SF20/SF25 artbooks, they divide the Street Fighter artists into two groups: Illustrators, who get huge sections and interviews, and "Other Illustrators" who did some SF work but worked primarily on other Capcom frachises or worked for other companies (like Namco or SNK).

To them, the Main SF illustrators are:
Akiman
Kin Nishimura
Ikeno
Bengus/CMRK
Dai-Chan
Edayan
Shinkiro

I should also point out that Akiman, Kinu and Ikeno founded the legendary "Capcom Desgin Team" back during the late 80s. Even when they weren't the main artists on games, they still guided the visual look and supervised other artists throughout the 90s.

>>5379040
Yeah good point. Looking it up, it certainly seems to be the case.

>>5379652
Oh damn, thanks for the info. No surprise there as their work is so iconic. Though they've had various talented artists on board, Street fighter has never really hit the same luxurious notes since imo.

Should I take criticism on this board seriously?

I'm trying to improve my drawing skills but when ever I post my work here most of what I get is "cringe" "schizo" and other general name calling or being told I draw like a child and I should just give up already

I hardly ever get any actual advice here on how to get better and not even encouragement and it's really taking a toll on my motivation

I know

Originally I was able to quit at the beginning of the year but during my reading week I was depressed and stressing about assignments felt isolated and lonely due to lockdown started smoking again to provide a relief

Now I'm trying to use up the weed I still have left and not buy it anymore
>>
>>5378008
Yes and no
I used to be a heavy smoker when I was at a very low point in my life and indeed it impacted my progress A LOT
I stopped for a whole year, got a gf and my shit together
I started smoking again this year. 1 joint a day and only right before bed
Honestly I haven't noticed anything bad yet on the contrary, it helps me deal with stress and I have gotten better in the last few months than in 5 years before that

Thing is if your mindset is good, smoking is not necessarily bad, but if you're already dealing with depression or something it's a bad idea

>there's this strange expectation that the critic has to put in a disproportionate amount of effort into reviewing the artwork
I get your point but that's not what I said. A critique can be short and in point but a statements like

>soulless
is not contributing anything to the artist. Sure, you are free to post your opinion but don't kid yourself if you think you are doing anyone a favor but your own ego.

This place is a pig pen, but there are sometimes pearls in the pig pen. Don't get too close or you'll have your finger nommed off.

Take what you need, wash off and sanitize it, leave the rest. If you want you can also make the pigs REEEEE in happy or anger.

Try and have goals too, they're fun to achieve even if it takes a long time.

Also, if you want a chance to get into that program, take a day and literally I mean Literally draw circles, cubes, rectangular cubs, spheres, cones and cylinders all day. I've done this with a ream of copy paper when I was similarly cringe tier, the improvements are indescribable. Do it in fifteen minute sets if you're as ADHD as me and let the mental fog/brain fuzz settle by staring at a blank wall, it sounds weird and awful and it is boring but my god it helps with over and stimulation.

I love drawing, but i hate the process learning. It’s so hard to stay focused when i’m watching video courses because I’d rather be drawing what i want to draw instead of what i need to. How can I change this mindset? are there teachers who make the learning process fun? if so, who? I really want to get better but I don’t think I will at my current rate.

Honestly if the drawing part of it isn't what floats your boat, concept art might be for you, especially photobashing. You definitely still need art skills but it's much more of a design exercise, combining things to make new things,. It isn't for me but you might like it.

If you can't do it quick then you can't do it. It doesn't matter if you can do something with a ton of thought, if it's not intuitive then you don't know it in a meaningful way

That’s really interesting. Are there any posts of the people that CSR was referencing? Like photos from models or thots themselves to compare with? Also are there no archives at all? I could see CSR doing something that.

>>5375713

Use the 1% rule. Stop thinking of what you want to make/complete as a GOAL that, if not completed in a day or a week, is fruitless. Start thinking of it as a system where you work on it AT LEAST 1% a day, or 1% every time you open your art software or pull out pencil and paper. Repeat 100 times and you have a finished project. Once you master that, then you can learn how to do that for a handful of projects at a time.

As for worrying about if something is passable enough, STOP THAT KIND OF THINKING IMMEDIATELY. You will never create the perfect painting or drawing. You will only ever be seeking perfection in the building of your skill and making better and better work as you go.

Other advice: I used to get stuck on one art project that would take me WEEKS to finish. I would get hung up on it mentally, thinking I had to finish it. Eventually I learned I had to teach myself to let go of projects. Delete them. Start fresh. It's better to let go of something that's not working than bash your head against the wall with it for weeks, start something new.

Right now I'm working on more things than I've ever worked on at one time. I open each of them, work on one till I feel satisfied with the change/improvement, save and close, repeat till I'm done going through all projects. If I feel like something isn't working and don't want to continue it? Delete.

Hope these ideas help.

Once and for all. What do you think is/are the best book(s) to learn anatomy? Or the best author? Is it Vilppu? Is it Bridgman? Is it Bammes? I want to read your opinion and experiences anon.
47 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>5377254
why not a combination?

i like anatomy for sculptors, but i find myself going back to look through hampton's stuff (excellent for construction), vilppu's videos (great at explaining how everything pieces together and of course "feeling the form", but very slow), hogarth's stuff (super exaggerated illustrations to drive a point, makes it easy to understand), and even proko's yt videos (the animations/illustrations he makes helps a lot) for different sections that i needed further understanding of.

the thing is, everyone thinks differently and there is no 1 size fits all answer. it's about drilling the information in your head in a way that makes sense to you personally so that you retain the information and are able to apply it to your personal work.

i looked through bridgeman's "complete guide to drawing from life", but i don't understand how anyone can legibly decipher his scribbles/poor scan quality of his drawings. didn't touch bammes yet.

loomis's drawings were inconsistent as fuck and i remember being really frustrated with his books around the time loomis was the popular meme around here. you'd see a construction line for you to follow along with, but it won't be there in the next step of the illustration. to this day, i still think his construction illustrations are shit, and i'm convinced he only drew the constructions after the fact of drawing the character, or even that he never really used construction in the first place and it was just something he intuitively knew and failed to explain.

Yeah, I will do this later because I still have some things I need to study on my schedule. I guess the bigger aggressor here is the sizer, I tried with a big picture to see how well would pixel art translate if I tried using higher resolutions;

But I have no real idea of how to control the number of colors. Yeah, I can do black and white but if I want to use colors in the picture I wonder how it would fuck everything up. But that's for later, I'm trying to emulate something like this with the backgrounds and art:
