Thinking about illustrating my personal electic selection of gods and saints from history as a tribute before ai takes over and removes the point of living in general as a way to prep my immortal soul for the incoming obliteration
Digital or trad?
do not eat the fishe
Trad if you want to display it, digital if you want to show off, honestly it doesn't matter. You should chose which one you think feels right.
This is about human expression, something AI can never replace. (But this isn't a thread for that and the ongoing one is dogshit.)
You great grand children will be buried before AI can make an original painting without photobashing from gelbooru and shutterstock.
Sometimes when I buy salmon from the butcher and then take it home to cook with ,when I touch it before putting it on the pan I get a boner. The flesh of salmon is exciting. I would love to touch that fish. It's belly looks soft. I wonder if it has any holes.

How do you study? Do you read books or prefeer to just copy and learn from your mistakes? This year i am trying to git gud

the same way you study anything else
A small amount of both.
i just look at books without reading then, then i try to mimic what they do until i get good.
I rarely even "read" these books but i draw basically everyday, it's working for me and i'm getting better and better.

What anatomy book would you rec? Are all loomi's books useful?
>>>Copy artists you like
This is what /asg/ says right?

What I'm wondering the most is how do I later go about learning to color and shading my drawings
There are books/videos on shading.
Robertson's How to Render
Gurney's Color and Light
Eviston's Art and Science of Drawing weeks 7 and 8
You can also learn from copying artists, I've been copying some of MacCaulya's drawings which are in black and white. Makes it easy to copy the shading.
anatomy for sculptors, stonehouse, or maybe you can try some slightly simplified or stylised ones like morpho or Tomfoxdraws
>This is what /asg/says right?
yes it's called master studies, Robert Beverly Hales has a book about it but I've not read it
I second the other anon on James Gurney, 3d total also have a book on this
thanks an absolute ton

who are you and who the fuck ask?
They could accept new tech to make their lives easier but they are highly individualistic and like to torture themselves. It often takes a decade or two for artists to open up to new tech because their way is the only way and anything making it easier isn't worth of being called art
This was actually kind of inspiring. Thanks anon.

AI isn't a tool for artists to use, it's not even art

i remember your rats from another thread,cool
great expression

just finished this one, my gf is going to make some postcards with it for her brand
very nice. the way you designed the shape around the eye feels off, but i couldnt say how to improve it.
also i think you made the wrong choice with that hard, clean shape for the foreground leg. in an attempt to make it simple and unobtrusive you called attention to it.

How long does it take to paint like this?
6 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
It takes as long as me fucking your mom
So mere seconds?
Were you watching?
no amount of practise will allow you that
not everything is for everyone

take a closer look at that image and tell me what you consider to be difficult to paint about it
art is not about technique, it's about your third eye that you can not train
you are nothing, your soul has rotten and you roam this life waiting to go to hell for that is where the soulless creatures go
you are pursuing beauty that is not there, the rot has taken over and and thus your ability to see and perceive has been lost
you are only here to observe and not experience, for it is the lost ones who can only see what is beautiful and what is not since they can not go beyond this

Hang the piece or yourself, anon decides

Why don’t you post your own art that you hang in your room and we can discuss that piece as well

Huh? It was just a cute thing for my fiancé’s desk. I can/could actually see the errors you pointed out, but they’re only something to change for the next one. Watercolor hates repair attempts and I was nervous since I don’t really do figures

I didn’t have any white so this came out dark
pretty piece, wish it had clouds though

Digital is superior after all.

Like this. I used to have my pencil rest on my middle finger, but my thumb gets too sore from a tripod grip because I'm the type of person who will sit down and draw for hours on end without breaks. That's why now I usually use a very flexible grip so I can draw for an entire day straight without needing to take breaks. I realized that having my pencil on my ring finger gives me a wider reach and flexibility, I can make large sweeping motions so it's good for drafting and sketching while the tripod on the middle finger gives me more control and more precise detailing but it lacks reach and fluidity.

Nah, I switch between the two and I used to do the tripod grip as my main grip and my motor faculties are developed more than the average person. I still use that grip sometimes, especially when writing, but for long drawing sessions I don't. It's fine for 5 hours but any more than that I get carpal tunnel.

That index finger looks uncomfortable.
Also known as the Jack grip.

Want to post my work on Instagram but then I think
Who the fuck would even care?
Does that happen in your country?
People admire achievement, not art. Achieve something.
Make a ton of money through NFTs and Crypto if you want admirers.
No one liked Matisse’s art, Van Gogh’s art, Monet’s art, in their day.
I have hundreds times more followers in other sites but Instagram does bring it share of comms
Instagram doesn't seem like the best place for that type of thing.

Also, you might wanna start watermarking if you get popular.

I’m an aspiring artist and have stories I want to share using comics as my medium. Sometimes I’m satisfied with my work, but other times I feel like it’s all a bit samey and I’m missing some factor of mass appeal. I’d like some feedback.
(Some if not most of these are signed but I promise I’m not trying to self-promote, just really don’t feel like going back and saving alts without them so just ignore it)

10/10 most recent one thanks again to posters from the other thread for helping.
You have a large variance in quality. Some parts look heavily referenced and other parts look like they were drawn from imagination. Your sketches look significantly better than your attempts to make finished pieces.

So you should probably try to make more finished pieces.

If you want mass appeal, draw content that appeals to the masses. None of this content is especially interesting or well executed. Hence why nobody commented in the thread.
Not one of the four finished pieces posted it are any good? I was at least proud of the one in OP. The ones I consider finished are >>6499604, >>6499613, >>6499619 and >>6499633. Do they lack appeal on a conceptual level, or is it execution/coloring/all around skill? Some pointers would be helpful.

Thank you! I'm glad people find them as delicious as I do hehe
One is Spaniard (hence the ginger-ness) and one is Mayan (natives that unironically look like that) so I'm not quite sure what you mean. Maybe it's a screen difference?
I think it's really cute since Mexico is essentially a mix of the two
But also not to worry I have plenty of cute Mayan/Spaniard OCs i'll be dropping later
I look forward to them

its just classic disney cartoons with bug eyes. soulless bugmen copy western art again. like all nonwhites, no art of theur own. no technique. no skill. no architecture. no music. like monkeys copying our actions but still pale imitations. amusing to look at but soulless.
