Funny you would say that. Just finished this
>I feel so fucking afraid and anxious when trying to draw things around people.

That's okay, anon. At first, it feels like all eyes are on you when you're drawing in public, but in reality, most people mind their own buisness. After a couple of drawing sessions, you get to a point where you don't care what others think anymore.

>God fucking forbid someone makes eye contact with me.

Try to take quick glances from your chosen subject, instead of long stares. It take some time getting use to, but you'll be training yourself in both memory and quick figure composition.
>After a couple of drawing sessions, you get to a point where you don't care what others think anymore.

I've always been bringing my sketchbook with me since I started drawing (3 months ago, /beg/) since most people recommended it, but I'm still as anxious as when i begun.

I'm not sure I'm using the sketchbook correctly (what should i be drawing in there?)

And thank you for the advice!

Explain how artists like Da Vinchy never improved over their life, they just started off good as children. Pic related, drawn when he was 7 years old apparently

>Da Vinchy
good bait, I'll bite
Leo must have been in his 50s when he drew this one, as it's similar to his other drawings from that period. Also, I'm guessing physicians didn't allow just anyone to take part in dissection.

Back on subject: I'd say what looks like lack of progress is most likely caused by diminishing returns of practicing a skill. That, combines with the fact that young master already starts to plateau when he begins working on his own, having been practicing under a master beforehand.

Here are fragments of pieces he did over the years. You can see a clear progress. I think.
The biggest change is between when he was in his twenties and thirties (1 and 2 image).
>Da Vinchy
They were apprenticed at a very young age. Modern art teaching is shit. There you go.
>sameface syndrome
Who is attached to direct right now? I know John Logan is the screenwriter.
>durr sameface
Those paintings are of an idealized Madonna. Obviously the same character would have the same face.

I unironically want to learn to draw in the calarts style of modern cartoons

Judy Chicago. You're similar.
if you are going for those geometrical shapes around the painting you should put a little more effort into making sure they are straight.
Use a ruler or masking tape

are you related to the templeOS guy?
what makes an engaging painting? figures are a dime a dozen, also faces, and faces doing weird things with odd coloring.
people will look at a painting longer if its portraying a story, but what kind of story to put into a painting that isnt contrived power fantasy, or simply sexual?
not intending to put anyones stuff down, just trying to work out how to decide what to paint.
>how to decide what to paint.
Paint what you want and what you like, you stupid idiot, be sincere. Also, when was the last time you've been to an exhibition?

Ah ok. What you want is a complete impossibility then. Even the most foul eldritch horrors anyone can imagine have their basis in things that exist and humans have seen.
This ngmi faggot is just here to whine
Think of drawing from imagination as drawing from memory. You can create new things by combining, transforming and remixing things you know how to draw. If you want to draw without having to look up reference, you need some basic skillsets, so you can construct your own drawings
1. Perspective & Form
2. Gesture / Figure Drawing
3. Composition
4. Visual Library
For the last point you need to draw from reference until you understand the form and function. (Same goes for 2., but its worth giving it a bit more attention, if you intend to draw humans) Drawing from reference is seeing and understanding. Drawing from imagination is recalling and constructing. You will not be able to get good at inventing without studying life.
confirmed faggot
Everyone uses reference, even if they aren't literally looking at an image they are still "referencing" images from their memory. AKA, visual library. If your visual library isn't vast enough then just use a reference image.

And with that one sentence I am never reading your comic.
I’ve never seen a lesbian orc, I’ve only seen them plowing into asagi
Man I don't care how good the art is this kind of paneling is a fucking chore to read
Of course you can.
If you think about it, manga authors do a chapter every week, at 13 pages or more.
That's over 676 pages a year.
So the answer is that it can realistically be done by a human, but whether or not you can do it depends on your skill and more importantly, your work ethic.

faganon here, i mostly just put it at the end of character creation once im done with concepts, background, and basic story. gender as well since unless that's the whole point of the character then it's thought of first. i'm not one to make a deal about since again i just write characters.

though i do admit a small part of me does it in fears some asshole starts whining on twitter but some of my ocs being straight cis men...jesus i hate those people.

I was looking at some chrome tablets and tablet pcs which were going for pretty cheap on ebay, and what caught my attention is that they were using Wacom's EMR digitizer(as opposed to the AES and ntrig digitisers used by windows tablets)

Does anyone have an experience with them? what caught my attention in particular is the acer chromebook tab which is only like $200 and comes with a stylus and everything

I know that chrome os doesn't really have the best painting program, but as long as I can use infinite painter and medibang well, I should be fine
why would you want the precision of an EMR driver when you can only use fake shill apps on it?
Not OP but you can run Android apps on Chromebooks. Not sure how run they well though
you should be able to, I think I saw infinite painter running on a google chromebook before

Art is all about passion, if you don't enjoy drawing and just enjoy the finished product you're never gonna fucking make it. I've made some shit art over the years but I still enjoy every second I'm not artistically practicing fundies. This is still one of my favorite pictures I've ever drawn. If you don't enjoy the act of drawing itself you'll never make it, point blank period.

You'll never get better at art focusing on bait.
So do you part, ignore and hide their post.
Pick up your pencil/pen/whatever and contribute.
And don't forget to have fun and draw whatever you like, don't let others hold you back. Also drink water.

if everyone else become shit you automatically get better in comparison
That's like having the uglier/fatter friend stand next to you in a party. Sure you looks better when you two are together but get you alone and they realized you are just as ugly.
There were 2 threads that were deleted in the past 24hrs that i recall. The thread about drawing "attractive" negros and a kyoani thread.
Someone must have reported the threads to get someone to care.
I suppose that sometimes a jannie from another board take the reports from /ic/ and check the most reported and delete based on feelings rather than strict rules. For example the first thread about those animators dying in a fire was deleted but the new one is staying up - why did one janitor got rustled and not another? This is a slow board, it makes sense for them to be rather lenient. Not worth the effort if it isn't their board.

so, would you get the Neuralink implant if it could make you a master artist?

What I struggle with most is getting down the undersketch / underdrawing. All the art guides and videos I can find focus on rending a drawing over the underdrawing, but never on the underdrawing itself. I can't build without a foundation but nobody will tell me how to pour concrete.

>I don't draw
>why do I suck at drawing?
gee billy I don't know
I haven't built any houses either because I don't know how.
Would you expect to be able to build a house without first studying 4+ years for a civil engineering/architecture degree?
mate, you need to draw to get better at drawing
you sound scared to fail so you don't try, but remove that fear right now. the world won't collapse under your feet just because a drawing sucked. draw anything you want without fear, and you will make real progress, because before succeeding in art you need to be willing to fail a thousand times over. in fact, the best way to make measurable progress is precisely to draw what you're most scared of.
if you want to hear of this from someone of verified experience, look up Dave Rapoza's "Bog Witch tutorial bonus content" on youtube, you should find it easily. it's a bonus content video from a tut of his where he explains what he did to get better at art and his own obstacles, he says specifically to tackle the things you're most scared of. and it makes a lot of sense to anyone with some experience but beginners have problems with this
