It helped me learn how to complement colors better. It's permanent. It's a true test of skill.

Yep. I learned a lot about colors from it.
But the elimination reasons are dumb as fuck.
Best artist on there was Laura Marie. Her color palettes were beautiful.
Skin cancer is not badass
I love tattoos. Got a few myself and I'm looking to become a tattoo artist myself. Its such a beautiful artform and I one day want to have the privilege to mark someone's body.
They are not to everyone's taste yes but a well done tattoo is always a pleasure to see though a shitty stick and poke or scratcher is pathetic

I dont get to sperg out about tattoos much so sorry about that kek
Tattoos don't cause cancer retard. Just don't get dumbass black outs or tattoo over moles

Congrats anon! Wishing you a long streak!
I really like how you drew the leaf!
the hand of the girl looks maybe a little bit too big and her leg a tad too skinny.
Keep it up dude :D

if you have time to polish I would suggest you use the text fonction in your app as some of your handwritting is difficult to read.
If you have more time, details some of the pannels like the 1st 2 ones with the hand holding and the 2 character cuddling each other.
Really insane amount of work there, well done anon :)

What's a good grinding routine for when I understand fundies but need to get them into my second nature and have a lot of time every day to do so?

Should I dedicate a day to gesture, a day to anatomy, a day to values, a day to animals, a day to composition etc or should I split them up into hours and do a bit everything every day? Are there any established routines? Should (re)reading and (re)watching new or old material take up more or less or no time compared to actually drawing?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
I understand the theory, but I also understand a giant part of art skill is putting the mileage in, I don't know if the grinding method I choose will be less efficient than something that's already out there and tested, and I also don't want to get burned out.

If just doing finished pieces every day gets me more progress than grinding fundies in isolation then I want to do that, but getting a gesture not completely right and still constructing the body and rendering it feels less efficient than just grinding gesture in isolation. But then I see my favorite gesture styles already have hints of form and anatomy and weight and balance in them, and wonder if I should study and practice doing something like that or if that will come from the separate elements.
Rolling for my waifu
Read The Talent Code and Make it Stick, or atleast their summaries. All current research on learning suggests that it is more effective to study several (related) things on each given day rather than to dedicate many hours of practice on the same subject in a single block at a time. The brain retains information better when it gets a different task to contrast the previous one to. Look up interleaved practice and spaced repitition
Huh may try this. Think my problem is that I lose interest in fundies so perhaps I can do one hour to a study and do 2-3 each day. Or do so with different books, or say bones, muscles, and poses for anatomy.

That's what manga artists arw

If it moves the metagame further down the "everyone has to do this now in order to have a chance to compete" line, then it's cheating. Like using bots until the game devs, tired of trying to prevent it, decide to just make the cheating tool part of the gameplay so that all players can use it. Fuck you. You worm.

Working on this and not really feeling it for some reason.
Maybe it’s just the line art? I’m hoping it might look better painted.
I was always under the impression this sort of multi-layered process is only done by pros who need to be able to change/adjust pieces quickly.
It wouldn’t hurt to give it a shot though so thanks anon.
Needs bigger (or smaller) tits
Joke aside, it's really cute
1) The technique of body-doubling
Body doubling is basically "You are more likely to do an activity if others around you are also doing it". In art this can be achieved by being in a room with other artists who are drawing, or thru multi-streams or screen sharing via discord (streaming alone can also be a good way to keep yourself on track, peer pressure is a hell of a motivator)

2) Background noise
Simply having something in the background such as music, a podcast, or even a show to binge can help keep your mind from getting distracted. It doesn't even have to be in a language you can understand! Just something to help keep the monkey in your head from bouncing around.

3) The bitter pill of practice
If you're having trouble with something, it simply means that you need to practice drawing it. The first day or two (or more) of practice you may feel absolutely terrible and that you aren't making any progress at all. But after a while you'll start subconsciously making checks and doing little tricks that make drawing easier, faster and more accurate. Compare your latest studies with your first attempt and your efforts should shine through and give you a huge motivational boost.

4) Learning to move on
As an artist your skills will always be improving and your personal standards will change along with them. It's easy to get caught up in a piece that doesn't feel "worthy of your skills". It's important to be able to identify your faults, but you should take those critiques and remember them for your next drawing instead of spending hours and hours redrawing the same piece. This is especially important in the professional world.

DAB is fucking terrible. I mean just take his exercises if you want to draw something but don't follow his advice.

Hey, thanks!

I don't really program actually, it took me sometime to get it working but I managed to. Thanks!

Do these artists use a lot of 3d assists and references to create these works? Are you expected to or expected not to use 3D programs for poses and lighting for works like these?

nah, I don't want schizos to know I browse this board
OP is an /ic/tard, and is probably asking the question probably due to his curiosity on how much he himself should be using 3d assists and references, other anon is just giving advice to the ictard in question
They do research and make reference collages on the things they want to draw, then they likely do a first sketch to find the overall composition, then they put away all the reference and draw and render.

It's how I've seen most of these artists work and there is nothing wrong with using reference, every good artist has used reference from Michelangelo to Craig Mullins.

Kim Jung Gi uses reference as well but he draws so much that it becomes automatic. In his talks you see him talk about how he tries to "impregnate" everything he sees, to take in scenes, mechanical objects and people in all their details and when he goes home he draws from memory.

/ic/ bro, can you suggest me a very simple but super aesthetic artstyle? here are something i found on innernet. can you please add more to my inspiration folder
Just use Pinterest. Looks like 99% of the stuff I see recommended to my dash.
Drawings like the bottom far right image and the second-to-first top right likely use a clipping group mask over their lineart to achieve that effect.

Anyone know where to find all individual human muscles presented more or less like this? I mean infographics/photos that show only the single muscle in question like on this drawing. Is something like that anywhere on IC's torrent? Or anywhere else?
I think anatomy.net is a shitty site but it might help
How about try doing your own research, or opening any fucking physical book on anatomy ever.

What is wrong with this? I was trying to do a thumbnail then decided to paint over it a bit but the colors and lighting look off and I have no idea what's wrong. What's wrong with the lighting?

Thanks. Looks good, but I don't understand this. How can you keep the rim light on the right but you removed the light itself (blue gradient on the right).

The way I imagined it was something like this, a strong localised ight source (moon or something) creating the rimlights on the figure and also diffusing in some fog on the ground. I wasn't entirely sure what you had in mind with the original irt the inexplicable blue gradient, like what sort of light source is causing it.
I was thinking of a spotlight inside a studio, coming somewhere from his southwest, but it wasn't well-planned. I have no idea what I was doing.

because everything is black, moniqquah
you gotta make SOMETHING visible for it to be an image. either dark on bright or bright on dark
I have no idea how you do that. The values are perfect and looks like a 3D model in the thumbnail. I just keep changing things until it looks good, then an hour later I find that all my values are off and don’t know how to fix them.

I think post-"japanese illustration" expressionism is going to be a fad soon. I saw this painting over a week ago and it's stuck with me, I can see a lot of potential in the abstraction.

What do you think will be popular in the next few months/years?
