/beg/ - THE BEGINNER THREAD

No.3232925 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
IF YOU ARE A /BEG/INNER IN ART, please use this thread to post pieces for critique or ask for advice. We should not have to make new threads or post in the Drawthread with our fundamental exercises.

Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make someone proud.

RESIZE YOUR IMAGES TO ~1000 PIXELS:

#1)
>screenshot the image and post that instead

#2)
>change camera capture settings to something smaller

#3)
>send to computer and resize in MSPaint

There's a new (and cleaner) sticky in town! You can see it at:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uwaXKU7ev6Tw_or__o8ARpUb6r2rCZYJGqwSFV9AD98/edit#bookmark=id.15jx3pyuimvj

TRY TO BE MORE ACTIVE AND GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK - many studies are left unreplied, which is a bit sad and can be quite demotivating for the people that try their best to improve, but are left directionless.

This thread is meant for artists who might want to try to make anime works in-between their studies. It is strongly recommended that you use this thread in conjunction with learning the elements and fundamentals of art. You can also discuss the visual elements of various professional artists as well if you keep it relatively articulate and civil.

Submit your drawings, receive feedback or critique others! Share your knowledge and remember to thank those who've critiqued or red-lined your drawings.

Don't know where to start? Read the sticky.

Why do all artists, teachers, lessons, videos etc always address practicing art/studies as a negative thing? You always see "the GRIND" or the "journey", always emphasis on negative adjectives such as "exhausting". Painting the idea that "art is never truly mastered, you will always need to improve something". The only glimmer of positivity is usually something like "but if you endure the aching grind for years and years and years, you will notice improvements". Wow, what a dream to cling to. I'm sure new artists can't wait to "notice improvement".

So, why is the art world so negative in this regard?
