if he has a bf, he’s already feeling pretty gay, no need to overdo it
I feel like you want your ex back. Your current relationship is a rebound and you're done with it.
Bitch, you live like this?

a good anatomy book should make you:

feel sorrow
feel joy

...and most importantly...

Did you read the book? His intro is pretty funny and insightful about other anatomy for artists books
Never watched it. Can't make up opinion on somethin i know nothing about.

Everyone likes a different method. Some like to be entertained and have fluff, some want to follow the path others took, some want to get serious. All of these can lead you to understanding figure and anatomy. Bammes a serious approach with concise illustration that leaves no room for guesswork.

I like the style and colours but the facial features on the girl look like they’re floating on her face and there’s no structure to them
This is a bit gross.

After a year of traditial I changed to digital,and I don't even know how to approach it.
I think that there quite few people here who also have experience the transition,so,you guys have any advice, tutorial,YouTube series....that have helped you before in getting use to digital?

For now I'll just draw to get use to it,but anything helps.

Are these helpful for non-Photoshop users?
As long as you're not going through the section labeled for photoshop, yeah all that shit is pretty universal. Line control is line control no matter what program you use. Blending is the same, as long as you have something like a hard or soft round, and you have an eyedropper tool, you can do it.

The shortcuts for some things might not be the same but all you need to do is google how to do that shit in your program.
Isn't Matt Kohr the Digital Loomis?
The fucker only knows how to paint landscapes and objects, won't help if you are into char design
Extreme brainlet take.
If you don't know anything about the basics of digital painting he's the guy to learn from. If you're /int/ he really won't help you much since that's about where he is as well.

>only knows how to paint landscapes and objects
Have you even looked at his work? That's not even all he teaches in his videos, man. Snib snab, go draw.

>all artist does is complain about how much his family hates him
>doesn't move out despite making 2k+ a month on Patreon at the age of like 23
Twitter could have galleries or "tagging" systems where people could mark offtopic pictures so they wouldn't show up in their media section.

But they are not interested in doing that.
And there isn't a single good art platform out there.

The best solution is to just have your own website, but that costs money and/or time.
I intend to do it, but only if I ever reach any sort of audience first, I'm not wasting my time when no one cares. I have my full collection of drawings stored offline, in my HDDs.

Fuck you Instanigger, that place is even worse than Twitter.
The opposite of autism to the extreme. Too normalfag for normalfags.
Sorry, but no one cares about your political opinions.
>5 years after gaining your independence you are stuck at home in a loveless home
>probably been that way since childhood
>no idea how to move or where to
That would honestly be purgatory. This guy is probably saving up to move. You got to remember that in fucked up cases like this the guy probably doesn't even know what documents he needs to get from said family or even how to communicate with them to get them in order to move out.
or, could be even worse, like feeling of obligation to be accepted by them because dum monkey brain or being scared to move on because that is all he knows

The ability to see images in your head can be improved with practice.

This thread is for good visualizers looking for a way to take their skills to the next level. This is all pseudoscience, but it can have real results! Developing your mind’s eye won’t necessarily help with your drawing but it can definitely change the way that you experience art.

Document with exercises and more information:

The best part about these exercises is that they’re challenging, you can try them anywhere, and they’ve definitely helped me so they might help you.

Resources for the cognitively blind (Just for courtesy, I can’t say if they’re good or not):

All of those things are true. This isn’t a draw thread. This isn’t pretending to be a draw thread. What point are you even trying to make?
this is called the ganzfield experiment, no idea on its accuracy but anecdotally ive heard it does something
I have no idea if it would help at all. As I said in the post this is purely conjecture and I pulled it all out of my ass. That being said, if someone was desperate for any way to form a breakthrough of some kind with no visual ability whatsoever, I would love to hear if it would help at all and test the validity.

I personally have never tried it but when I was younger I kind of wanted to. I don’t really see a point anymore, though.
I don't have time to read the doc now, but I'll check it out later. Thanks op

Stop drawing!
You are getting nowhere!
Not if you have begun drawing since you were a toddler and you had parents who supported you and went to proper art schools in your early years

Stop drawing if you are begining in your 20's-late 20s, it's fucking over!
Same fate as an ugly incel who hasn't gotten laid in his early life.

Go 4 rope art failures!
What else do we have in this life?

We all know this thread is gonna fail but there were multiple posts this week in beg where crabs said the anon's weren't begs and they were right in a lot of those cases so fuck it. it's worth a shot.

intermediate is kind of a gray area. If you're on the better end of beg, but probably not pro level, you are welcome here. If someone really is a beg, you don't have to kick them out, who cares? But you could kindly tell them that they might get more help over in beg.

It’s for the best. You /ints don’t seem to make any art, anyway, just dunk some on some namefag. May as well be a gaming thread for its pwning.
reminder that the crab went into this thread and again rejected my request to have a live, shit talk, recorded version of a gesture battle that everyone can enjoy.
you are an insufferable faggot starving for attention and your le epic dance battle sounds as fucking gay now as it did 3 years go. COPE
pretending to be a newfag so that samefagging doesnt get detected. Keep fleeing.

once again faggots here talk about something they don't know shit about, anime is just the name western retards gave to anything produced by japanese people because anime isn't an artstyle in japan, it's just their way of drawing things.
Anime is in the core of anything japanese draws because they've been influenced by them no matter what, yet crab will try to tell me pic related isn't anime while it 100% is. Stop getting mad the USA hasn't had any great artist since the 60s expect Dave Rapoza meanwhile japan are cranking hundreds per year.
> anime isn't an artstyle in japan
>Anime is in the core of anything japanese draws

>USA hasn't had any great artist since the 60s expect Dave Rapoza

ask me how i know youre 18
extremely based
give me arguments against the first 2

give me great american artist which aren't Jim Lee aka asian artist migrating in the us and I'll gladly accept i'm wrong

even if it's close to the truth, my age doesn't mean shit in this debate which doesn't exist outside of /ic/ crabbing, the industry ain't giving shit about what's art and what's not, some studios will hire you if you have an anime arstyle, other if you have a american artstyle, end of the story, same goes for commissions.

I haven't had a chance to go over this nearly as much as I want to due to having been inadvertently away from home for the past two days so at the moment these feel like band-aid fixes. I'll try to do more with it soon as I can.
The only reason your friend told you to post on /ic/ is because he hates you.

Exaggeration of perspective, proportion and lines of action.
How is even possible to exaggerate the proportion?
