I feel like boys are unnecessarily nice when it comes to praising a girls artwork. They should be equal, non-biased, and tone down the creeping.

I just witnessed a woman ragequit an art discord because she was offended not by what it represented, but what she THOUGHT it represented.
First she was all "nice" and "just letting the admin know cause he might have put that emoticon without realizing it", then a few people said "ur wrong lmao" and she lost it.

The reason men are nice to women, besides wanting to get into their pants, is because they refuse to waste their free time trying to reason with the drama that would ensue from treating them like "one of the guys".
Some are also afraid, cause assuming it's not a random semi-anonymous community on the Internet and the woman has any inch of power (police, a boyfriend, her parents, other random thirsty guys around you), she will use it to try and subdue anyone they deem conflict-seeking (call it a shit-test if you want, the result is the same).

For the record, I treat women and men alike within a reasonable margin and have more female friends than male ones, but you don't get to keep all these mental children around by being 100% straight-forward and pragmatic as you'd be with a dude. You have to turn everything into little games, coded language, maybe be "harsh in a joking manner", so it doesn't hurt feefees, even though you actually mean it and she knows you actually meaning and appreciates the feedback, but the rituals are paramount and even characteristic of female oversensitiveness to language.

I've grown used to it, but the moment you start demanding things on top of all common courtesy I already have I draw the line.

Well of course if its a cute girl we try to get with her.
Doing it online is stupid though.

Is Proko a soi boy or can I trust him when it comes to learning anatomy?
54 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
>as I sit here practicing my baby exercises, I project my self hatred on to proko and critique his existence
Proko is on a whole different level of his field, regarding his skills and knowledge of drawing. I was not trying to drag him down, I know where I stand in those areas, I will probably never have a tenth of the knowledge he has in his craft. My baby exercises are what they are, I have started out a few months ago, out of sheer interest, and to pass my time. I do not think I have any illusion of grandeur, nor self hatred springing from my state of a total beginner. But why would I NOT think and analyze the content I am listening to, and who I am listening to? Regardless of level and success, shouldn't one try to grasp the possible personal and impersonal meanings of any activity he participates in, be it art, science, any sort of occupation? So why would I not make an attempt to grasp the differences between art and craft, the genuine and the contentless, the substance and the appearance? If making an observation is off limits, what is this place for anyway?

In a animation film what comes first, the backgrounds and layout or the animation?
3 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
really that first?
script, storyboard, layout, voice acting for most western movie animation, backgrounds and animation.
I know in anime the background artists and key animators work at the same time after the layout has been approved
Damn, this is some good shit.
These are for Japanese animation but I hope they will answer some of your questions.

**Don’t aimlessly study the fundamentals or anime. Learn the fundamentals (form, values, color, composition, etc.) through properly copying anime.**

How to study anime/get better at imagination drawing/obtain a style/etc.:
>Find an anime reference you like (an illustration, screenshot, anime figure, 3D model, etc.)
>Find learning material that will help you reconstruct your ref using simpler fundamental elements
>Trace the ref using that construction
>Copy the ref using that construction
>Draw the ref from memory that using construction
>Repeat the process for the same ref multiple times and mix in other refs
>After studying a lot of refs, drawing from your head will become easier

**Focus on Tracing/Copying/Memory drawing the big shapes/values/elements first then later worry about the finer details. Focus on only a portion of a complex ref first then move on to studying the full ref.**

Just found out about living in Chile, damn that shit sucks
avoiding mistakes is a good way to never improve. if you recognize what you've done incorrectly and can articulate what the problem is semi-coherently, find ref on google images or by taking photos and then do studies of it until you can draw that shit without ref, without redoing lines, and without hairy, fat guesswork lineart.

looks like you have major problems drawing heads facing downwards. might want to start with that.

Cheers anons, thanks for the encouragement.

>would just like to suggest you think more in hierarchies when sketching (if you did). Details are welcome, but they should happen in tandem with bigger, more defined shapes that give them foundation and gesture. Point in case is the "skirt" and the back of the head/hair, that look detailed but a bit formless.

Appreciate that crit, and I see what you mean. I'll keep this in mind and try to practice it going forward.

So when or how does drawing start to feel natural? I feel like I am improving but it still seems like what I make tends to be a struggle and offputting. It felt odd at first but I went along with it expecting this to be normal but I started noticing something off after seeing how faster and machine like other people can be.

I'm definitely going to miss the Hall of Shame.
welp, what a tremendous waste of a pure gold mine
They really weren't that great, you've got nostalgia. Art you see online now is above and beyond what was posted in those sketchbooks.
The nice advantage about the sketchbooks though is that you get to see the full progress of how the artist got to the skill levels they're at over the years. You got to see their good and bad drawings.

A lot of good artists on social media only uploads their best work. They never upload the drawings that failed like in the CA sketchbooks.
Plenty of artists upload drawings that fail every day. Seeing one person's failures isn't different than seeing many people's failures. A lot of the art is very dated and even those that "made it" don't have great art to look at or learn from. Tremendously overrated artists.

I'd be pretty happy if I were able to get a story out in about ten years honestly
What's your rate? I have stories with completed scripts and no time to draw, let alone be at the skill level I want. But, I have money and wondering how much it costs to hire an artist.

i lean towards drawing slightly masculine guys but i normally enjoying drawing cool guys and gals more than typical cute things.
I'm extremely paranoid of someone stealing or referencing my style and becoming more popular than me overnight, to the point where I don't upload art anymore.
I don't know how to let go of this feeling.
