Is it ok for white people to draw black characters?

ITT: making up scenarios in your head, getting mad at it, winning strawmen arguments
Many of the most popular artists among the general public these days are stylized to the point where often there are no obvious differences between, say, Asians and whites. Blacks have very distinct phenotypical features that almost have to be depicted for the character to be accepted as black. A Latino on the other hand could just be viewed as a tan white.
Don't forget thinking the tiny 2% of black people on this board don't give a fuck as the protectors of justice speak for them.

I draw niche fetish art and im still /beg/. Recently an artist far more talented and popular than me, who draws nothing similar to what i post followed me and has been regularly liking my posts.
Why did they mean by this?
In Krita is there a way to make the pop up palette pop up while the tablet is in use? (The hotkey is right click by default) Cuz to make the palette pop up I need to fully remove my pen away from the tablet.

Why You Should Copy Anime:

**Strive for quantity AND quality.**

Anime Studying:
>Copy anime references exactly and draw them from memory. Use illustrations, screenshots, anime figures, 3D models, etc.
>Don’t copy recklessly. Use construction, color theory, and other fundamental concepts to rehearse a drawing process that you can later easily manipulate for original artwork.
>Post all of your anime studies. Post even when you’re told not to. Create an art community that actually draws and improves together instead of just talking about it.
>Number your attempts and link to your previous posts.
>Critiquers should lead by example by posting their studies.

General Anime Style Discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.

Okay let's say he "only" makes half of the minimum estimate so that's 12k plus his patreon money around 16.8k, that makes around 28.8k a month. Still pretty lot of money for something like that.
When it comes down to it, telepurte probably has (or at least had I don't really pay attention to him) a similar level of grind that nip animators have. The man spent a YEAR doing a few seconds of animation every single day so at least the man tries. I don't really like literally anything he posts especially since it's almost entirely horny bait now, at least during his "animation a day" thing he made some stuff that was more personal.
that's profit before tax, although iirc he's not american so idk if all his money gets stolen or not
even if he made 10% of that it's still an absurt amount.
how do i get aboard this coomer animation meme trend?
This Telepotro guy is completely talentless. Gives me hope actually.

I didn't make it, artist is:
>is that your own invention/habit?
more or less yeah, it was kinda born out of my issues with controlling lines but still wanting to get linework done quickly, so its an easy way to give myself some marging of error while adding some kinda hatching quickly, i see it as some sorta extension of gesture so it follows the long axis of the form in most cases (unless its heavily foreshortened or showing overlaps)

>earliest digital piece i have on my hard drive is dated 2016
>ive been drawing everyday for the past 2 or so years and making an active effort to study for like 3
You give me hope. i've been drawing all of my life but I didn't start taking it seriously until like 2 years ago. I'm no where near your level but people like you remind me that I need to push myself a bit more to reach the skill I wish to get to.

There are days where I feel like I've failed for not drawing anything and then I'll flat out get burnt out to do anything. On top of that I'm not even sure what style I want to develop for myself. At this point I'll probably just keep drawing.

pic related, 2 years of progress since I started back drawing in 2019
thanks a lot for the response.
love your style and sense of form.
and with what you've said, i think i can see how it's wrapped up with gesture. very cool. gesture is still very mysterious to me

Especially when it comes to learning art?

dm a person you trust instead of an anonymous board so you can have a real conversation where ya'll define what your problems are and find help for you and your unique circumstances around the maintenance of discipline and willpower
I wanted to ask a leading question but I'll be straight with you you can't finish a picture all you can do is decide to stop working on something, hopefully because you're satisfied with what you've accomplished.

what gives you the idea that your pictures are something that you can ruin

1. Don't post nudity or too revealing works.
When in doubt, post a censored copy here and link to the original off-site (e.g. catbox, imgur, etc).

2. **No Porn**.
No, not the retarded "anything with a body in it is porn" standard or "I see her underwear, MODSSS!!!" Use common sense.

3. Do not post sexualized child photo references. In fact, don't post pictures of children at all.

4. Due to the PPH (posts per hour/thread activity) of this general, please wait until the thread falls to around page 5 or 6 before making a thread. Use archived(moe) or warosu to retrieve the old threads.

You don't need Robertson, Moderndaywhiteboy, or Krenz's over complicated measuring hacks to draw lolis. There is a handy little site for cube people I have bookmarked that has a 3D model you can pan around as well as other tips. If I have the time I'll post it later.
Unironically epic idea
Yeah, but obviously not with you.

The post doesn't need to be approved for it to count toward your streak. In other words, your streak won't be broken if your post isn't approved before rollover.
Usually takes a couple of weeks for them to approve you.
two weeks, but your art will still count for streak even if it doesnt get approved before rollover
I'll approve you if you draw fanart of my OCs
I can't even draw fanart of my own OCs yet.

>create my personal best drawing

>5 digit numbers
Why do people still give the advice to just draw what you like and people will follow? Never worked for me.
Ive been learning to draw for two years now, and I still dont feel like I can actually draw an entire figure on a whim. I -can- draw them, but it seems totally random if they look any good or not.
Dunno if this applies to you but I skip over wips that have so many mistakes that I basically would just be saying "go study a beginner drawing course".

I hate drawabox but it at least taught me how to not overshoot my lines

Anyone else doing this? I have to say I'm surprised how long it is, these exercises are no joke, especially since you're not allowed to rush. Realistically I think it will take like 6 months to finish the whole course.

I came here cause I was drawing boxes, realized I like it a lot, wanted to learn more about drawing, saw drawabox and clicked on this thread. Not even OP too. Picrel is my work.
>The guy who did DAB is a self-taught artist and programmer
Jesus christ I'm a programmer myself. Are programmers just autistic enough to draw boxes all day? I also stumble upon this online, https://www.reddit.com/r/ArtFundamentals/comments/8mr1o6/is_draw_a_box_good/
> I'd say drawabox is perfect for people like programmers. People with well-organized mindsets (not saying that's better) that like following clear paths. Edit: Poor phrasing. I meant people that have a tendency to recognize and analyze recurring patterns.
Thanks anon. Here's another method I found for this shit: https://goodsites.tech/. Has a bunch of great sites, some of them are torrenting. Already found dynamic stretching in one of them, won't say cause I don't want to get banned, but it's here.

Going through this thread, I feel like this DAB shit is crap. Ironically I would love it, but oh well. I rather draw trees anyways. Thanks for dynamic stretching, I'll try it.
Thanks. Even digital counts? Or is it cheating (looking at smoothing/stabilizing lines)?
I think there's the idea that only "drawing what you like" will never improve the artwork because no time will be spent on books and courses. Basically running in place.
If you're bored, you're obviously not engaged. If you're not engaged, you're not learning (or at least very inefficiently). These exercises are a waste of time if you don't put them into practical context and use construction for problem solving. You will not level up artistically by drawing hundreds of half assed boxes.
is this a meme or are you for real?

Approximately how much time and care is usually dedicated to planning out the drawing before actually drawing it?
