How do you effectively learn fundies?
14 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Yes, that's the most efficient way. It's like a flashcard, but with drawings.
you're a fucking imbecile.
you're still a rookie trying to sound like a master
your mother should have swallowed your stupid ass before your autistic father was allowed to pollute the world.
Apply pencil to paper. Draw circles and squares until they look like circles and squares. Use eyeballs to look around you and draw that shit until it looks like what you saw. Continue until you can draw everything you see. Dont come back to 4chan for 2 years if ever unless you really want to flip hamburgers for the rest of your life.
grind perspective and gesture
then draw from imagination and for fun

alternate back and forth until drawing for fun becomes the norm
it's just a game

thanks anon, hope you have a great weekend too : )
Nice that you got some commissions, someone liking your work enough to spend money to have their idea made by you is pretty cool! Also glad that you're working on expanding your artistic comfort zone, best of luck.
I haven't read the whole thread but I love memes and funny things and you posting Kermit with every reply is so retardedly funny to me right now. I appreciate it. Good luck with the art mate!
Thanks anon, just wanna give some good vibes to the board, funny vibes are just as good.

Based Kermit posting

Anyway, this year has been pretty well in terms of art, I got my hands on Clip Studio Paint and it's been a blast learning it. I really wanna try learning animation too!

Back in march I got closer with my online friends and it's been so good for me in terms of art, their support really helps me feel like every drawing I post is loved. I know it's not about the numbers, and mine aren't even that large but getting that confidence has given me more hope for art as my career.

Does anyone feel like wanting to gain clout/paid for your art has turned this hobby into a chore? I've been told it should be a fun and relaxing experience, and lately it hasn't felt that way.
Yeah, I feel you. It's not the drawing itself, but work. I hate doing work. I'm so against it.

I went into a trade as a result. Simply because if I'm going to feel like I'm just doing work, then I'll just do work.

I've come to gain more social skills, confidence, competence, and work ethic.

Lately, drawing professionally doesn't seem as bad anymore. Thinking of maybe trying to do it. We'll see.

Not memeing here, how do I improve my handwriting? Seeing beautiful journals like this is making me all jelly.
the only way is to practice calligraphy, buy a pen and print out basic exercise sheets, once you get a grip of the basic flow & rythm you can implement that into your handwriting
such a cool font and layout. i'll never be able to make something that artsy
For a journal, it should be personal, so as long as you can read it it should be fine. In fact, might as well just make your own secret writing system for it, who cares go wild, have cryptographers confused for years in the future, as long as you can read it that's all that matters

How did they fuck that arm up? Did the artist have a stroke when they did that part or what? How do you not just get in front of a mirror and cross your arms to figure it out?

I started painting with acrylics like a week ago and have no previous experience with any trad media so I don't really know what am I doing. How do I blend the colors? How do I mix them? Do I do the sketch first and partially paint some features or do I paint completely over it and then make another sketch and paint on top of it too?

Please, do you know any artist that may have an useful tutorial or a book?

Thank you.
I think there are some good books in the pdf sticky. I’ve been thinking about branching into trad paints too so I’ll bump this thread.
Mixing them is the same as any paint, use a palette knife, or a brush and some water in a well on a plastic palette.

Blending is finding what works best for you - i used a crosshatching technique, or tried to glaze with matte medium, with varying degrees of success. (I personally do not care for acrylics at all) I would block in an area with the mid-tones, then work out the lights and darks, as block shapes, and then cross hatch color across the edges to blend.

As for constructing the painting - whatever works best for you. You can look for tutorials on YouTube, but like any painting medium, it's about putting the time in to find out what works best for you. Blending is probably the biggest reason most artists don't like acrylics, and turn to other mediums for work that requires a lot of it.

my suggestion would be to do a few thumbnails to figure out composition and value and pick the one you like best. also dont stop drawing

Light it from the bottom because that's where the light source is, and shade from the top

Don't be afraid to push your values, especially in the horns. I can see you start out that way (legs, arm0 but when you break get further in with shading, I think you lose the contrast. I would push the colors too and cool down the shadows.

I'm not sure what kind of clothes she's wearing. Is it a one shoulder dress, or one of the straps just fell down her arm? If it's the latter, add more volume to the folds. Figuring out the clothing style will really help when defining the shadows. All those folds you rendered aren't helping much either. I would tone them down, at first at least.

CSP with its 3d models or design doll. Also don't be a GIGANTIC FAGGOT and trace over it like a demented 1braincel mongoloid ape. Use it to check foreshortening and tricky perspective shots.
Fuck I fucking hate hacks that just draw over a 3d model, try to hide it (it's impossible btw unless you're actually good and know what to fix) and flood every platform with their shit while posting a description to the tune of "300 years of anatomy studies helped my progress~ I can't believe I can draw like this purely from imagination with absolutely no refs~"
I hope Dante's hell is real and they all end up in Malebolge (though I'd probably boil with my fellow degenerates in those comfy lava lakes too).

I'm not good with lineart at all - I don't know why drawing is impossibly hard for me to do. My guess? Lack of practice. I just don't have a desire to do it, though. I hate myself.

Either way, I do like coloring and inking.
any anons wanna give me some shit to piss on and maybe practice refining my garbage skills?

You can try go with lineless art style

It's difficult to learn at first but will help your drawing much simpler once you get the hang of it
I have the opposite problem you do anon. I have decent lineart but my coloring is shit. Teach me your ways

Have you tried just practing construction and then doing line art on top. You don’t want to over do it as a crutch but it can help with developing the muscle memory rooted in understanding form to do line art more smoothly.
embrace the "painting" method
Do you mean something like this? >>4211244
