Feeling Overwhelmed by Long Sessions

No.4067839 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hey /ic/, i don't have any mentors so maybe one of you could chime in on this.

i am a somewhat intermediate (low intermediate i guess) artist who is currently NEET so i have no obligations. i often switch between being artistically dormant and outputting low amounts of art, and also being active, where I am doing a lot of studies alongside frequent personal work. right now i am putting off a portfolio project and feeling like i only want to draw what i want to draw rather than doing fundamentals studies.

unlike my past "dormant" periods, though, i am not just unmotivated or undisciplined, but outright scared of putting in more intense efforts. when i look at my typical art "to do list" for a day (hands, feet, figures, faces, etc for warmups, then actual projects and studies) i start to become anxious to the point that it feels like im panicking and i get tight in the chest.

i'm not really sure whats wrong with me, at this rate i think im going to have to work in a sponge factory as i might just be flat out braindead. give me the artistic armchairing ic. pic unrelated

How to get better with faces?

No.4069153 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Who's a good teacher for faces that doesn't do the standard roman nose and deep socket eyes. I wanna know how to make all types of faces. Western style, not anime.

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 /draw/thread with our fundamental exercises.

Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, or you literally are never going to make it

TRY TO 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.

Post your current drawing here and give constructive critique to others! Don't take anything personal!
Please make sure your posted image is clear, downsized to around 1000 pixels wide, rotated to the correct orientation, and that any unused space is cropped.
If you want critique on a drawing from the previous thread, you can delete it there and repost in this one.

My mom is a painter and big fan of the old masters and she's running an arts show and wants me to submit two pieces of my own art. She thinks I'm really skilled now but I draw mostly lewd anime whores and she's a puritanical Christian woman who isn't really into that. She wants me to draw some SFW stuff but I'm too cumbrained out to do it. I have until tomorrow to do lineart of two pieces. How am I supposed to accomplish this?

I'm writing my own personal tool to take an HD blender render and properly downscale it to a lower res pixel sprite.

My goal is to be able to draw in HD my sprites and then downscale them properly to a low res sprite.

Most algos literally suck because they don't take into account context information.
Gotta see if I can write an algo that uses the same workflow a human does to draw pixel sprites.

So far I got the outline of the sprite properly coded, this outline will be taken into account when dowscaling my art.

Would anyone here be interested in such a tool?
