have you ever in your entire life unfollowed a person because they were not meeting this ""expectation""?
I doubt it. People don't unfollow someone because they aren't seeing them pop up in their feed enough. They just forget that artist exists.

More likely to unfollow an artists going for daily uploads because he has more opportunities to disappoint you and it only takes 1 bad piece of art for you to unfollow.
This. Too many artists out there for me to remember how frequently they post, but shit drawings and godlike drawings stand out the most. I would be more likely to memorize those with arts I really like and seek them out later for refs or just to inspire myself to draw, while bad arts are the only reasons I would ever unfollow someone.
definitely not higher contrast, not low saturation either. pay attention to the shadows and how they are not dark at all depending on the ao
how much work do you expect from an artist's patreon/fanbox if you were to sub to them?

I've been trying to find a painting I've seen a couple years ago and I'm having no success...

Maybe someone could help.

I'm not sure, but I think it was from an American painter.

It was a scene. It had a house, with a roof kinda in a V shape, it had snow on the roof and all around the scene. Like it has just finished snowing. The atmosphere was clean and the paiting was mainly in blue/black/white tones. Very sharp defined lines. It had a 50's/60s aura...

Does anyone have any idea of what paiting I'm talking about?

Thanks in advance.

Been avoiding making a dedicated thread about this but i'm fast approaching my wits end and both the painting and the process of learning how to do it is starting to become very draining for me.

You see when I wasn't studying it I had a sense of how to render and I did it with meh results but most importantly I actually finished pictures. Now that i'm actively studying ( courses tutorials studies etc.) I can only paint studies but can't transfer anything that I've picked up and successfully applied it to my own art.

It's like I'm petrified to fail all of a sudden and lately i spent HOURS brute forcing everything i touch, looking at countless pictures for references and inspiration, and doing all of these studies. Hell I picked up watercolors because I figure trad would aid in understanding how to paint better.

What am I doing wrong, and how do I bridge the gap?

Pic related is my work and i regularly posted in the OC threads till recently.

Thank you for helping an anon out in advance :)

those rocks look sick anon, what brush did you use for the texture?
I know exactly what you are going through, and I think you are actually on the right path with your trad watercolor frog which is exceptionally good. Rendering well is really just a matter of confidence after a certain point. Even though it sounds counter intuitive, I would struggle with colored pencils or something that isn’t like how you normally render for just a piece or two, and then come back to digital. It will just make the whole thing feel easier and then you will be able to apply those fundies better or at least thats what I do.

yeah i was thinking about making more time to play with trad lately since i have graghites, piere noires, watercolor/color pencils, inks brushes pens, tons of alcohol markers and watercolor that's mostly collecting dust since I'm always chained to the PC and quite bad at all of them. it may put things in perspective for me so it doesn't hurt to try at this point.

If I want to start painting, should I start with learning to draw with loomis or should I just buy some paint and begin practicing?

This exercise isn't meant to turn you into a beginner artist into a good artist. This exercise isn't meant to be fun nor engaging. This exercise is not part of the fundamentals needed for your growth as an artist. However, this exercise is important if you're planning into getting into draftsmanship and/or want your linework control and quality to be better, so your pieces can have more consistency and personality to them.

It's boring, it's mind numbing, it's technical but it's effective if you take your time and be committed in doing these daily. The pen should be an extension of your body and having full control of it will make your pieces look and feel better.

I personally use this as my warm-up before the actual warm-up (Quick poses). It takes 15~30 minutes, depending on your pacing but do take your time with this. The exercise humbles you as well because some of them actually do showcase just how shit you are at linework when that's the main focus of the drawing. I'll post a drawing I did for my comic as a sample on how much better it can look just by my doing these exercises daily.

Do it and share your attempt at this exercise to see where you are with your linework control.

Hey all, I've got a large fan-fiction I'm doing and need some advice on this piece that I'm hoping to finally have a piece fully sketched out before I start with values and everything else.

How can I fix the perspective? The figures are supposed to be very different sizes. The man on the far right is supposed to be like a good couple of feet taller than everyone except for the guy standing in the back.

any advice is much appreciated cause I want this to be my best piece yet.

Short addendum:
The body has pretty okay proportions and actually has some depth, so you've already got a stronger area to work with.
nothing wrong with rendering a thousand cylinders

study gesture with vilppu's stuff so you can pull off more dynamic poses. right now it's very stiff and unnatural. face has bad proportions and anatomy lacks definition
drawing a full body figure is pretty difficult if your anatomy isn't on point so I'd suggest you draw those cylinder figures you often see in studies so you can practice form and perspective. then you fill an entire page with multiple drawings of a single body part at a time: legs, hands, torsos. then you start giving your cylinder people these body parts progressively until you can make a complete figure
also, copy from your favorite artists, especially when stylizing faces. it is essential that you learn the proportions and distances of the facial features first (for example the loomis head) but stylizing faces is a whole new beast that will require both that knowledge of where to place things and a lot of copying
thanks, now I have an understanding of what to do!
got it, thank you

Yes, no one wants your schizo garbage here
Back in 2019, I had an instagram account that got up to 52 followers, but it was so exhausting to follow trends on that place. Plus, I was getting too ranty about stupid shit. After deleting the IG account, I re-engaged with social media after 2 years, this time focusing on posting original shit to pixiv and youtube. I only have 5 followers now, but art feels fun again. I guess the moral is that people don't want the same shit, they want something new.
Also, got some of your guro to share?
Who knew that a bunch of Japanese randos can be so supportive?
This is too real. I still get sales and commissions, while sticking to artistic integrity + creative freedom when it comes to painting. Still, in spite of that, I still get treated like it's soulless. The same normies will blow hundreds on basic generic ass "live laugh love"-tier shit.
>"Durrr hey I'd like a commission"
>"I'll pay you in a week or so I dig it anon".
>Months later and still nothing.
>Posting other art they've purchased.

I've probably become a pushover at this point. I'd add "serious inquiries only" but that just comes off as douchy to some degree.
I could be painting something with a passion for two days straight with no sleep, charging no more than at least $90 to $200 depending on stretched or panel canvas size. Then in some fakebook art group there's always that guy who draws like an 8 year old with crayons (literally), charging $1k to $4k. Same with the basic "spray paint artists" who can make lazy uninspired moons and stars. Maybe a generic city at most, then they act all fake deep for clout. Not a creative bone in their body except "hurhurr look I did a thing".

Thanks to everyone for making /mmg/ a level-headed and helpful place. Remember, drawing and making comics and manga are difficult endeavors, and we're all in this struggle together.

am i going to make it bros? i know the games industry has lower standards for stories, but if real life normies really like it, does it mean i have potential? i'm very insecure about my writing because i have no idea what's considered objectively good. at least with art, you can visually compare it with a professional's and see where you fall short, particularly where the fundamentals are lacking. writing just seems like you're grasping in the dark.
