I really like your style and would love to see more of your work once you get anatomy down. Or cheat like pros and use reference models so you can skip learning all major muscle groups and bones by name.

The one on the left have more 32% greys than the one on the right.

Performance "enhancing" substances that either help in making art, or make the experience more pleasurable in general.

For me:
>baclophen and caffeine.
For some reason those two go together really well; I would even say that they synergize and potentiate each other amazingly.

>Phenibut
Awesome...but insanely addicting. Very similar to baclophen, but way more euphoric and it makes music sound phenomenal; like out of this world.

>Post nut clarity
I've noticed that I produce great work like right after I ejaculate. Maybe that's just me though.

>Exercising and going on long walks (especially at night for some reason.)
And when combined with all of the above it really is great.

Kratom powder has helped me immensely with fighting depression and pre-drawing anxiety. Just don't take a lot every day.

Very small amounts of THC has helped me relax my mind and open myself up to new ideas and processes while drawing. It helps me look at fundamentals in a much more abstract cohesive manner.

I don't think I would recommend anything else unless you are prescribed by a doctor. Everything else is a distraction or hinderance.

>Kratom powder

Watch it with that kratom shit. I had a friend that went overboard with it and his liver started shutting down. I've also heard around the water cooler that they mix small trace amount of tianeptine in it now in order to make it seem more powerful. When I tried it for a while I started sweating at night like crazy, and I do mean like CRAAZY. I'm talking about being able to take my shirt of and squeeze about half a cup of water out of it and my bed looked like someone had just stepped out of a swimming pool and laid down, and even after I stopped taking it that lasted for a few months.

>needle brain faggots like you are always trying to categorize drawing and storytelling into your arbitrary groups. As if it was possible to boil down a genre. into a single element and say “ah, so this is why this is good!”.
>I know your just trying to find an easy way out of this. Your trying to hone in on a specific aspect of drawing that will gaurentee your success in the field at large. But it doesn’t exist. If you want to rise above all the other losers on this board your going to need to think more about WHY you draw something in a specific way.

>>5683458
Great art is valued because it arrests your attention and rewards careful viewing by resonating with your soul. Character design alone won't let you achieve that. Think a little, OP.

how do you avoid becoming a starving artist?

I need a Patreon like service that lets people pay me monthly to draw anything, including obscene stuff like rape, loli/shota, bestiality etc. I want to stay anonymous, and I do not live in Japan. Does anything like this exist? I've been looking through the archive with no luck.

you can draw from books
getting new information on "how to draw" can improve your insight and understanding of fundementals
if drawing was so easy as "just looking at things you like and drawing for the next decade" then everyone would be a good artist by the time they exit primary school

are these classical ateliers meant for those who already have some degree of skill, or can you be a total /beg/ger and still get into one and come out as a polished artist after a few years?

Short Answer, no.

Long answer, find a local art guild/art association within driving distance, learn about the classes and things they offer, and find out if they have any figure drawing sessions for cheap.
You'll learn way more from these than you will anything else, and it will be cheaper. Yeah, you might be around old farts who are stuck in the mindset of barns and flowers, but there's atleast a few people in these guilds/AAs that are very good and worth trying to learn from.
>>
>>5686364
To further expound on this, the local AA had a remarkably interesting guy who was a master craftsman in every right, and he showed me a ton of cool things before he passed. Also had some really interesting stories about working at lockheed during the Apollo program, and how some parts of the rocket wouldn't go into place without a sledgehammer.

I heard about it; but he also said things like «Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.»

I wouldn't be surprised for the accusation to bear some truth actually. Nobody's perfect ;-)

>He wasn’t a religious man
>>5687781
I'm pretty sure he had issues with religious people. Yet, he was highly spiritual, a "disciple of Experience". His faith in God is expressed quite clearly throughout his notes, e.g.:

«I obey Thee Lord, first for the love I ought, in all reason to bear Thee; secondly for that Thou canst shorten or prolong the lives of men.»

His notes are quite available nowadays; quite insightful.
