Firgure drawing and studying photos, breaking down elements
>>
I do pretty much the same, I try to study what I'm constantly struggling with cause it's too easy to let it slip and mindlessly do more figure drawings and not actively improve on what I lack.
A rare piece of good advice I got from here was to not just study vaguely but also out of necessity while working on a project. ie if I wanted to start a project based around mecha beetles I'd start doing studies of both, and also draw some motherfucking medabots, but spend half the time just making my own shit so that I can keep track of what I'm lacking in.

>>5530919
Usually a theme of studies for a month or two like anatomy or value. Then broken down into weekly projects to apply what I learned as well as an overarching monthly or seasonal project to give me guidance for my weekly stuff such as a world building project

It's easier than ever to learn how to draw/facilitate digital painting styles. 10 years ago no one knew what the fuck a tablet even was, or that it was possible to use photoshop or software besides MS Paint. Now everyone's got access to what was only premium state of the art hardware and software right out of the womb. You take a middle schooler and give them a few summer vacations with SAI/Clip Studio and they're making stuff like this easily.

I always laugh when I see people bitching about "muh zoomers" on this board
imagine the cognitive dissonance required to believe in zoomyboomy dichotomy when you get dabbed on by kids half your age in the primary skill you practice.
this isn't fucking /v/ or /co/ where having a bunch of useless esoteric trivia memorized makes you king of the manchildren
all they can really do to cope is spout buzzwords like "soulless" and jerk off to their "patrician" classical/academic art they'll totally make one day

Kim Jung Gi is an anomaly even among top tier artists. Very view approach art with the same techniques he does.

I think it's kind of a poisonous attitude that to be professional level you have to do what he does.

Is any of the shit relating to color wheels, complimentary colors, split complementary, and all that stuff about color theory even remotely scientific or used at all? You almost never see it used and the few times it's used to any reasonable extent it ends up looking like a garish mess of colors like pic related from dohna dohna(which is fine, but still).

yes they are used, colors don't need to be highly saturated to be complimentary

post christian art you have made, post christian art you like by others, and discuss christian art and all topics relating to Christianity.
(remember: the king of the universe loves you, and gave you the gift to draw to bear fruit.)

also i came across this really cool christian album that is inspired by c.s Lewis mere Christianity and covers themes about how stories encode the human experience and how the bible is the greatest story ever told, give it a listen from the start to the end in order, if you need a starting point to make some art it might inspire you to make some christian art the same way it inspired me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvidvObBfQE&list=OLAK5uy_n0G3Tow2He0OgxnS6kso1zh-O14ICLe3U

Repostan.
I'm slow as fuck, sorry.
I think I'm starting to catch up with the basic ideas of how to do it, but I'm eyeballing pretty much everything there is, so I'm feeling very iffy on the precision of proportion and how well I even mange to follow the perspective. Thanks a lot for the study material.

My best attempt. I work with the Loomis method.

Why is the paint bucket/magic wand so awful?
>the most advanced ipad art app
my ass, even medibang has a better paint bucket and that shit is free, if you draw a circle and there is literally a single pixel that isnt aligned it will paint the entire canvas, its also emtremely time consuming to needing to drag the fucking icon everytime you want to paint a section.
How could they fuck up such a simple thing?
The worst thing is they dont recognize it as a problem and dont want to address it.
I just switch to CSP or medibang if i need to fill in something with color.

The more you use Procreate the quicker you realise just how limited it really is.

You cant clipping mask to a grouped folder.
You cant mask a grouped folder
Cant change opacity of a grouped folder
Brute force layer limit, without content sensitivity.
Brush sensitivity blows out too quickly no matter the curve.
Brush tapering is inconsistant and doesnt follow any logic.
No none destructive adjustment layers, for colors and such.

Its a well designed apple toy. I'd suggest getting what >>5527710 said. Its not as macfaggy and retard proof, but it is much more powerful and is actually updated constantly, not once a year.

What if you’re someone that doesn’t really use any digital trickery and draws almost everything manually, does it even matter then? I’m too lazy to learn how to use all these programs and shit, getting better at drawing seems like an simpler alternative
>>
>>5530301
I’ve tested both and I honestly just prefers how Procreate feels smoother to use. I do switch to art studio for filling big stacks of colors and outlines.

Also, I already have my precise brushes workflow on Procreate.
