listen, im not good either
i've been in and out my art fase for the past 4 years. i mostly scribble and i've been practicing fundies for what a week or 2 total?
i dont want to work in this industry, art it's just an hobby. if you are not like me and you want to make great stuff here some advices that help me sometimes:
-change the way you sketch (cirlcles and boxes can go fuck themself for me, use triangles, ovals, organic shapes and the add a contour line or build your subject from that)
-use different techniques and find what fits you (i.e. i cant draw a portrait starting from a sfere but i can do it measuring and drawing the outline of the face first)
-COPY!COPY!COPY! just like a child! you dont know how to draw a nose? copy what other did and with some anatomical knowledge you'll get it right (you'll eventually be able to absorb a style and modify it)
-and last but not least, OBSERVE, before even thinking to draw something observ it: see how light and shadows work together, how lines flow in each other

this is something i've drawn today just because i felt down, again, and wanted to distract myself. i know, it's not great but it feels like a huge step forward for me (it took about 2.5h also the blue lines are mistakes i've noticed overlapping the pic and the draw)
tl;dr i suck at this therefore dont listen to me

not him, but there’s a difference between “not busy city” and “rural”
small towns, suburbs, etc are not rural
rural means farms and shit, having to get into a car to go to the store, having to drive into town to buy basic shit like a tube of paint, etc

You definitely need someone knowledgable to points out what you're doing wrong. But the answer isn't in /ic/, we're a mixed bag of different mindsets.

That one anon that hired a toptier pixiv artist as his tutor using his furries monies probably got the right idea

What's your long-term goal anon ?
What are the intermediate goals required to achieve it ?

For me it's to paint appealing figures on the same caliber as Gil Elvgren.
I am slowly going through the Watts Atelier Online Course to get a solid foundation in head and figure drawing and painting.

You're not alone. I think 95% of western people are like you. All capacity for enjoyment and delicacy burned out thanks to overstimulation (fake food, drugs, alcohol, bright blinking and beeping stuff, hyperviolence and nonstop emotional whoring in movies and tv).

Will anybody from /ic/ be joining talented Youtube artist RossDraw's upcoming 2021 Digital Art bootcamp over on Patreon?

I think there could be a lot of value to be had for /begs/ and /ints/ alike!

Come on, ross tran is much better than that, he's like "Tracing 2.0", which is copying other people's art/photography verbatim, publishing it as his own art and then refusing to admit it when confronted. Stealing chink on overdrive.

>There needs to be a Coffeezilla "Fake Guru" series on Youtube, but for artists like RossDraws, Ilya Kushinov, etc.
Excellent. Also add people who make fake paid tutorials where they teach you nothing (like Clint Cearley's "Aurora" tutorial, which he markets as a "full process" and then just flatly tells you that he "forgot" to record anything and laughs for like a minute, then just talks generic vague platitudes for the whole course), and Nathan Fowkes (eight week courses where six weeks are his narcissistic life story, and the remaining two are incredibly simplistic, ugly drawings that look nothing like his art).

>Nathan Fowkes
That sucks that his videos are so bad. His books are fucking nice. Guess I'll just stick to those.

>>5245425
>Nathan Fowkes (eight week courses where six weeks are his narcissistic life story, and the remaining two are incredibly simplistic, ugly drawings that look nothing like his art).
I was going through the color course and while there were some decent tidbits, holy shit was it a bad course of him just bloviating about his life. The $20 book is better than the course material.

>>5245425
>>5245453
didn't know that about nathan fowkes, what a shame, his art is really good. any examples of his ugly drawings you're talking about though? don't think i've ever seen anything ugly of his.

Very noob questions : Is there any example of anyone doing animation alone as a successful job? It looks like animation takes a shitload of time like 1 year for a quality 1 mn animation.
Hasn't there been any kind of successful independent creative using animation in one way or another, like some kind of YouTube content?
If I'm thinking about doing something that's based on animation but faster to do, I suppose the rigging/puppet thing is the way right?
