Greetings! Could i get some critiques and tips on my paintings? I'm 20 and i would like to get ahead as fast as possible, had 5 exhibitions allready and didn't go to art school so i'm still kinda lacking on the "Know the right pepole" front.

!!!Feel free to be harsh!!!! I need some cherry picking. But please don't say its shit, write it down why its shit. Thanks!!!

If you want serious advice, the general problem is that your values are weak and uncoordinated. You need to either study light and shadow so the forms look better, or stylize more aggressively towards a cartoony style or something else.

Is art school actually worth it? I’ve heard that it’s really only for getting connections into the industry. I want to be able to make art professionally but I want to know how much not going to college would limit me these days.

Imagine white knighting Horikoshi so hard when the anons in question weren't even criticizing him that harshly to begin with and were highly praising him for his art, but no, anything less than absolute worship of every aspect of MHA sets your fantard rage to a screaming boil. That's just embarrassing, anon.

In the meantime his story is one of the most successful in the industry. He has perfectly tailored his story for his Japanese audience's demographic.

Are you so dumb that you can't separate your personal preference from an objective assessment of the guy's skills? You seriously come off as low IQ.

Usually depends on your tastes and personal politics at the end of the day.

Propaganda that's an example of the artist's hard work and skills is more tasteful than some a bullshit infographic from prager-u/blm though. At least put some goddamn effort into it.

begs get disappointed because they look for something that doesn't exist. they either find it is lacking or they end up learning superfluous material that just wastes their time and misdirect them away from their goals. begs really believe they can learn some set of true artistic principles which will allow them to do just about anything in art, many times without even having an idea about what kind of art they want to do.
being able to copy pictures like a human zerox is probably the extent of fundamentals, for the kind of works that this bunch of old women expect to make.

Grind 8 hours of fundies and boxes and all you get is fundies and boxes. NGMI
>>
>>6405290
I think this is a wrong approach. He should develop his style alongside his fundies for a more natural development. Real life isn't like a video game where you jump from one level to another. You need to simultaneously develop your skills.
>>
>>6405320
Basically this. 1-2 hours a day is enough. As long as you draw consistently you will improve. Also there is no shortcut to it as this anon said>>6405271 You just need to enjoy it as you develop your skills and style.

Absolutely fundamental skill to have regardless of your ability level.
Even if you've been drawing for years I would recommend it, it's short enough to read in a day and you can just skim any section that you already have a solid grasp on.

I found it to be completely useless, but at least it didn't sabotage me with a bunch of incredibly destructive misconceptions about drawing, unlike Keys to Drawing.

Hello, any one willing to share their daily, weekly, or monthly art study plan? How much is enough drawing per day in order to progress at a decent pace?

I want to get some idea on how to setup my time properly and not waste time on anything else. Sometimes feel overwhelmed by the amount of resources at my disposal.

You draw like that you're going to burn out and throw in the towel faster than just drawing 1-2 hours a day and then occassional 5 hour session in the weekend.

>>6404262
Also as this anon said.
You can grind. But half of your priority should be on enjoying whatever you want to draw. Draw memes if you enjoy them ffs. Those are low effort, gives you quick dopamine boost, nobody going to care if you trace, and you can get better engagement. And then the other half is grinding whichever you feel like.

I've been grinding a lot in 2013-2015, but rarely had I ever done a 'finished' work. It's in 2018 onwards where I just go on with finishing art that I started and then just post them. Occasionally I'll try something new and I'd get some breakthrough here and there.

>wake up

>get hungry about 5 hours later
>black coffee and frozen pizza
>get back to drawing
>hungry again after 6 hours or so
>black coffee and cup noodles
>get back to drawing
>fall asleep on drawing table 7 hours later
Rinse and repeat.
>>
>>6404237
I can body almost everyone on this board and I've never been able to keep up a schedule like this.

Just do some sort of anatomy study or figure drawing session once a week and draw for fun the rest of the time and you'll move at a good pace. If you can do better than that, do it, but don't break yourself trying to solo this shit.

Just draw isn't a meme.
