>The hard part will be to stick to it.
this shit really fucks me so hard
i started drawing at 18 and stuck with it for only 2 years. only earlier this year i started again but i cant motivate myself since 2 months to do shit.
But i cant give up not untile i can draw a mediocre comic so i can bring my shitty story out there that i have for years on my mind
so you're around 20? You should be glad, imagine being 30 and having wasted numerous years drinking, vomiting ( after drinking ), taking drugs and despite being unemployed during this timeframe doing nothing to improve your art skills.
I was watching a video of wingsofredemption and asked myself " do I want to turn into this fat shit complaining h24 and doing virtually nothing to change my situation?" and so I decided to draw again.
If you lose your motivation just go and watch some videos from him, it works.
jesus anon im drinking curently and this guy makes me hate myself, maybe i draw today

i know twitter is probably where most of you get your commissioners from but are there any other sites where i can find clients?
try, karachan org
facebook groups. I get most high paying boomers from there. unless your target clients are those broke college tards and thirdworlders.

even I, a person with zero social media accounts and thus no following, managed to make some money there. Mind you, I'm a thirdworlder, so I'm happy taking small $50 jobs.

More specific nitpicking is counterproductive as it will make the person focus on the details and disregard the fundamentally poor aspects of the image.
"Your linework is garbage and you have no sense of form" is far more useful advice than "Her hat looks off in this corner". Generally the more it hurts the ego without being insults the more I know it's good advice.
the fuck? it's obvious, there is something wrong with you people.

Yes, but then you don't get the hullabaloo status boost.
Truth is this is all extremely subjective, whether the algorithm will show your post to your followers is what really matters, and no one knows how that works.

Here's my progress on drawing horses. Am I improving? If so, what areas do I need to focus on and what details should I add to make it look better? Just to note, the second pic is a bit stretched out so I know the body looks a little longer than it should be.

I'm not too worried about working on the backgrounds right now, and I'm currently using a mouse and Paint 3D to draw.

Since you're using what looks like MS Paint, try using a different colour, like red, to figure out the shapes of your horse first. It always helps to try and break down animals into simpler shapes. Try marking joints with little circles and join them up with straight lines, then build the legs out from them. Once you're done, you can go over those red lines with your final lines in a different colour. Before you start filling in the horse's colour, erase the red using the paintbucket tool.
Good job Anon! This one's going right on the fridge!
Do not use stabilization and learn to draw proper strokes instead, this is day 1 stuff you should practice.

If you are having trouble with symbol drawing, just read this book 500 times.

>broke out of symbol drawing without reading that shit
>draws symbols out of choice

I'm having only one issue with this book so far (I'm on the negative space chapter about to do it after this post) I did not like most of the starting chapters. It seemed like it was just a bunch of talking about a whole lot of nothing. I may be missing a point, but it almost turned me away form do anything in this book. I had to push on. Chapter 5 is where I think the book should've started, it actually felt like it related with me, compared to this left brain right brain shit. Which I think was because of the title.
TL:DR I thought the first four chapters are shit
keys to drawing, it's very practical including the mindset stuff
kill yourself
What did you dislike about KtD? It's not perfect but I got several important things out of it.
Really fucking LOOKING at the subject and drawing what you SEE aka not symbol drawing is the essence of the book and it really pushes that point hard. It also talks about good mindsets regarding the difference between free-drawing and control-drawing, I think it explains the concept behind gesture drawing better than the figure drawing baggage that typically comes with these lessons, focusing on how your hand moves and such. These teachings are not exclusive to KtD but the things I've learned in it are universal. Brent Eviston has some similar things about creative linework but he presents it in a more impractical way I feel.
The tone matching exercise with the profile of the woman was mind-blowing for me as I slowly worked towards a convincing copy of the image, it took like 2 hours instead of the 20 minutes the book gives you but it was well worth the time. The assumption that we "can't" draw something detailed if we're beginners is one of the most important bad mindsets a beginner needs to let go of, you really have to believe you can draw before you can draw.
I got really tired of the measuring exercises though, I feel like I have better results by just eyeballing.
It's not a full learning course but it's a great introduction to drawing and I recommend going through it together with more technical courses that focus on line control, perspective and form since KtD doesn't touch on that enough.

>KYS along with your vague method of practice.

That's the point dumbass. If you understand how to use basic shapes and lines to build form, volume and perspective you can draw anything. Your skills shouldn't be limited by subject matter.
You’re using cookie-cutter advice, like obviously, you heathen, he could fill in the blank with details. Calling this man a weeb while giving out generic advice, a true hallmark of /ic/ advice. Calling someone a weeb while giving out the most generic advice that even a layman could think up, I absolutely love it, really.
So you have a bit of an idea of where you want to go, Practice drawing basic boxes with wheels in perspective
The advice was generic because the question was generic too.

Do you want to get better at drawing something? Study from reference, apply what you learn drawing from imagination, then fix the errors.
With 3d models nowadays the fixing part is even easier.

Do you think Toriyama had the same tools we have now nowadays? Like 3d models or books like How to Draw?
Of course not, he bought models of real cars and used them as references.

I'm sorry but you aren't gonna get magically better by reading some paragraphs from a book, you have to actually draw.
Fair enough

I want to draw at work while I slack off but I get self conscious about how garbage my drawings are when irl people can see them
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
Easy: Just draw better then.
but you are not self conscious about slacking off?
Well your drawings are pretty shit and you definitely need the practice. The good news is the normies will still consider this good and impressive because they can't do it. They're more obsessed with themselves than they are with you or your ability to draw. You'll hear comments like "Wow you're so talented, I wish I could draw" or "Hey could you draw me?". And they will never insult your drawings to your face, even if they do think they are shit. Not b cause th y care about you or anyone else but themselves, but they fear that being and insulting don't go in public could make other view them in a negative light.
The only way is to escape being a normie is to bring t care about hat other people think. Stop being a faggot and draw if you want to.
source on that drawing?
It's vore. Idk if anyone has the source but I'd like it too

Even from reading the premise of your story I could already tell you would get an all female audience, BL was inevitable from the day you drew the first scene.
Coomer BTFO, I hope you're proud of your bastard kid, you immoral retard.
You can revert the course of the story by making people straight again after learning "that's not what they wanted", but you have already scared the heterosexual fanbase and the big gay will NEVER forgive you for backpedaling once you've given it a taste.
You are forevermore the kiddie incest guy, try making a good story in the future without people expecting the same. People who didn't like it won't even pick up your new titles...

Cringe, there’s no such thing as a monkey brain Evolution-tard. Repetition works for everyone, you’re not special.
hate your fucking life and decided you have to make a change or die.

pussies will die, people who have a shred of will to live will make that fucking change and stick with it, it gets far FAR easier once you see results.
