You'll never get better at art focusing on bait.
So do you part, ignore and hide their post.
Pick up your pencil/pen/whatever and contribute.
And don't forget to have fun and draw whatever you like, don't let others hold you back. Also drink water.
I'm scared I'm just gonna stagnate and not improve far enough, that I'm just gonna plateau from a lack of talent or potential or whatever.
That's a big claim, do you have a Source?
My minds gotten so strained by the thought that the older you get the harder it is to learn which is spewed by some people here. I'm 21 right now and I want to learn so much even outside of art but my mood shifted. I don't know how true it is but the thought alone leaves me in shambles.
>>4069610 >I don't know how true it is
If you're asking about what science currently knows about it, I have good news for you. At 21, your brain isn't even entirely finished. The brain isn't "frozen" by 30 as was thought previously and the connexions inside the brain can and will be rewired as you age. This is why scientists talk about the neuroplasticity of the brain, because it continues to adapt. Expect a cognitive decline of a few % by reaching 50 though.
alright guys, i have this problem... how can an artist deals with masturbation?
Snake says "You're just making me hornier."
Why do people do this? If you want to masturbate, just do it. Doens't affect your concentration. Sure, it affects you motor capacities for a couple of minutes, but that's it.
>>4055387 >alright guys, i have this problem... how can an artist deals with masturbation?
By fucking the women.
I just masturbate before sleeping, easy.
Nofap was a really bad thing for me, when you cum you don't care about 3DPD and the inferior sex but when you're on nofap literally any girl hitting on you will make you horny
>>4059036 >free will
and just like that I cant take this pic seriously
I recently was told I was shadow banned from Instagram and sure enough I could not find my recent post by using tags, It always seemed weird to reach 2k followers on twitter in a few months while I have barely crossed 1.5k on IG after two years.
Has this happened to you?, Were you able to fix it by the usual methods (ex: buy a promotion, stop activity for 2 weeks, not using banned tags, etc...?)
I do nsfw but it is very inoffensive (pinups, figure drawing, etc..)
>>4068639 >porn not OK >graphic pictures of small animals you just shot for fun are OK
they will actually ban or suspend the profile since nsfw is not allowed. As for shadowbanning, there are a lot of reasons for it, abuse of tags and keywords, spam posting, spam likes/shares, spam following/unfollowing, use of unrelated tags and a lot of tags, inappropriate content, flags, etc.
was referring to insta in regards to nsfw, twitter does allow it to a certain degree
So large animals are ok? Sweet.
Instagram is trash, I was banned because I block too many things on the ''explore'' page. They even went over to my facebook to question if I was real. Fuck ig .
Post anime or manga artists that have a very distinct style while still maintaining that "anime" feel
God she's cute
I saw it too, don't know if I'll get it since I don't have much bux atm
>>4068737 >>4068742 >>4068706
This is the only artist to do this to me, but when I look at their art I feel nauseous over how good it is (and how far I am from being at that level). I bought all the volumes of the manga but couldn't read them because of this. Maybe I just need to start studying their art and not stop until I'm comfortable.
Posting another drawing of theirs to make up for my blogging.
I love this kind of art style so much, wish more people drew like it.
I've been having a lot of fun with primary palettes lately. Can anyone comment on this one? Is it worth dropping the $30 for 3 tubes of paint?
I have a black on my palette and I never use it, I always end up mixing either a bluish or warm dark
payne's grey is convenient as fuck, I wish I started using it earlier
If you prefer mixing black paint, use an alizarin crimson with I think viridian? It makes a really deep black. Also when doing colored paintings I also mix a color into the black to make it slightly more dynamic.
pthalo blue is fine BUT i think it has white in it, so in the transparency you can see it, thats is not good for combining some colors.
>>4071124 >use an alizarin crimson with I think viridian
that's a really nice neutral black, thanks anon
I only got alizarin crimson lately and I'm liking it a lot, I always used quinacridone magenta because of lightfastness but alizarin mixes so nicely
Phthalo blue is not opaque at all, but it's insanely strong in mixes and very staining
something like a cobalt turquoise is way better
In all seriousness what exactly are the intermediate steps between these two? It has become a joke precisely because nobody will explain the process.
There's a million ways to draw an owl. Ideally you should go general to specific but everyones process in between the initial construction and the final result is different.
All a tutorial is telling you is to draw a very specific owl in a very specific pose, not how to draw owls in general. You draw owls by observing owls.
I mean other people have said this but yeah it's kinda whatever. The point of a tutorial is to give you the step by step on how to reproduce that specific image but if you wanna draw owls, just study some owls and see what lines they're made of. It's like the difference between knowing your way around town and following a gps. The gps will technically get you wherever you wanna go if there's a directory for that place, but you'll take forever to learn the town that way. Learn where things are and you only need your present location (two ovals) and your destination (an owl) and you kinda got it. If you drive to work each day, nobody has to tell you to start the car each time, or how to leave your neighborhood. If you relied on that sort of thing every time you needed to go anywhere, people would look at you funny and you'd never get anywhere on time. So you learned the mechanics of operating a car, as well as the basic way around town. Learn the mechanics of art, learn some owl anatomy, and then you can draw an owl in whatever the hell pose you'd like to, not just sitting on an invisible branch.
Correction to self: the branch, while previously unnoticed, was not in fact invisible lol
That is also draw the rest of the owl, from 1 to 2 there is a huge gap, the rest of the steps are more or less closer.
Ok, I've been following artists that mainly draw guys. I mainly draw guys myself. Every time I try to draw an attractive/cute female, I fail. I don't know how to make the curves look good, even though I want to.
So I ask you /ic/, show me artists that you think draw attractive females. I want to learn what they emphasize, I want to get better.
The joke is that toccai? can mean did i touch in italian
The right is more appealing because it has more graphical, asymetric shapes and a more appetizing, high key palette, not because it's "more stylized".
>posting counter example
There was this wolf man thing with his dick covered in blood and laying on what looked like a loli cat thing.
I liked it and It gave me tingles
Only a tranny would use this emoticon. Post discords
Why do some people get good really fast and others struggle? I'm improving but I'm not improving fast enough. At this rate I won't be good until I'm very old, if ever. It makes me very angry seeing people half my age who put in no effort succeeding at things which I failed at.
Your approach, focus on certain subjects, time spent deliberately practicing, your methods, how much you're getting out of your comfort zone, your attitude, etc. all factor in.
Art is complex and multifaceted, there's likely a big blind spot you haven't addressed. Are there things you're afraid of attempting in art? Things you don't ever "feel" like trying out? Do those things anyway.
I get frustrated too, but the reality is it always comes back to this graph. If you're not getting past those frustrating points you need to keep trying new ways of improving yourself until something works.
Also, you will never be able to fairly judge yourself so keep that in mind. Your mistakes probably aren't as obvious to everyone else. Just keep doing your best.
this makes a lot of sense. It can honestly get really de-motivating when you're putting in the effort and you feel like you're actually getting worse. Wish things were more consistent. Improving is really like a rollercoaster ride.
+50% of threads in this place have very, Very easy questions : this on is about slow & fast learners.
Wanna learn faster? Learn another way, a way that is more efficient to YOU! How is that complicated?
Keep in mind though : ars longa,vita brevis.
i enact a micro version of this cycle almost every day.
Alright someone explain this shit to me
>>4065544 >It's fun trivia, but it won't make you a better artist.
Video turned out better than expected
Knowledge of the scientific and hyper technical aspects of color theory seems to have ZERO carry over to making aesthetic and pleasing color choices in art. Just look at the work of the hue value chroma guy. Ironically his use of color is bland and completely uninspired
yeah, the feminist talking really threw me off, but the info is great
Bitch discovered additive and subtraction color theory and now thinks she is a genius. Then again, RBY is such a huge meme that has gone on long enough.
