Which artists should I study if I wanna learn how to draw cool heroic men?
Loomis and Bridgman, but if you want to draw like your pic related, you'll also need something like my pic related, which covers how to draw manly anime dudes
since you posted a pic o ryu id recommend one of the OG Capcom artists Akiman.
20th century fantasy illustrators like Frazetta.
And a ton of american capeshit.
Altho asian artists like Boichi can do a good job of representing that same "heroism" without too much stylezation it loses its effect.
pyw or otherwise the loomis spammers will infest it.

Which social media network brings your work the most engagement?
Do you sell your art?
Where do you sell your art?
How did you come up with pricing?
Are commissions good for the soul?
What are you doing this week to promote your art?
whats the point of /beg/ if nobody fucking gives a shit about you and 90% of the posts get 0 replies?
this is depressing
giving some ok level feedback would take like 5 fucking seconds
The point is that you should draw
i see your point, though i dont see it as not trying i more see it as style choice , but i agree there is a line between being lazy and having a different approach
but you cant give yourself proper criticism due to biases, and just drawing without any feedback is infinitely less useful than knowing what and why you fucked up on each drawings
Half of /alt/ is /beg/ level.
I told some people there to go back to /beg/ and an assblasted janny deleted my post.
This place is becoming more of a hugbox every day.
What's your favorite subjects to use as references? Mine are volleyball players.
It is feminine, lol. You probably just look like a skeleton and are intimidated by a little bit of muscle. Start lifting weights and in a few months your perception will change.

I don't get it. I don't see too much muscle definition, but she definitely has the shape of a man. Maybe her head is just really small, but her shoulders, ribs, and hips look very masculine to me.
Hmm, making a 1 image of a catagory instead of going through a folder of single images, might try it.
weird perspective, I wouldnt reference that shit
she does have very broad shoulder
What are the steps involved in producing a rough sketch? I feel like I've been trying to make the finished work without a foundation because nobody ever taught me how to lay the foundation.
make a bunch of light lines draw darker when you found a good line boom
Depends, who drew pic related?
light to dark, general to specific, start by doing some crude thumbnails until you know roughly what you want where.
What is your greatest achievement as an artist?
>I smoked a joint with Ruan Jia when he came to Europe for a workshop
>I smoked poppers with Ruan Jia when he came to San Francisco for gay sex
I was outside of School of Art Institute of Chicago taking a mad shit with my fellow homeless friends. then out of a corner Ruan Jia is there, strutting down the walk way. at the time he didnt known english, so he gestured me to come near.
he whispered in my ear
>"CUM STAIN LET YA BUTTS BANG."
he then pulled a massive blunt out of my asshole and smoked it.
i cried that day
Being a teacher I'd say, there's a small place that offers free guidance to people interested in the arts (mostly teens) and gives them the tools to make paintings and drawings free of charge. It's like a community center, and they keep afloat by selling the artwork these people do at self hosted galleries and with donation to their sponsors. I'm just a random guy visiting there from time to time, but when I see people struggling with something I like to give advice. Same thing goes for people online, the thing I regret is that since there are no live classes I really want to hire a naked model for them to practice but I'm not sure it'd be the right approach.
You nailed your drawings to the wall you fucking reprobate?
What are the best methods to learn to see corectly. Two most popular methods are sigh-size and comperative measurment. Are there any other?
I have never, ever practice that because i thought it's lame to use pencil (or any other tool) for measuring, i was only relying on eyes.
Then i realized, after many, many years, how bad my observation skills actually are.
>>4453164 >it's a viewfinder
no, that example is grid over photo. A lot of digital artists use it, but you can draw a grid over printed photo too (a lot of artist practiced that, if i remember, even Loomis mentioned this in one of his books - might be "Successful drawing").
And what you are explaining is physicall measiuring tool. Which is obviously still better then grid over photo.
grid over photo is of course still VERY good if you want to check/correct your drawing. So one firstly eyeball it/quess it, draw it and then check it with grid.
One """should""" use these tools mostly only for just checking (how good or bad do you eyeball).
Otherwise people (especially in art school, where they practice sight-size A LOT) start to depend on these tool. They learn to measure with tool, not with eyes.
grid vs viewfinder
Use grid lines in your mind. Or draw grid lines.
If you are drawing from life
>use your master eye >use your finger or tools to Guage
Is it true that women are better at drawing porn?
Stop being so jealous of your betters and improve yourself.
Yeah because they all participate in porn
To add to this, a recurring "trait" I've noticed in successful women artists is that they never had children, but some of them did marry. I wonder if there is more to this.
Examples such as Rumiko Takahashi or Sofonisba Anguissola, whom Michelangelo acknowledged as being good.
You wana drop the veil on how nasty women's turn ons can be? Don't look at hentai, look at doll art. A huge chunk of it is either erotic or outright softcore, and of that you won't go through a single row of image browsing without looking at torture, implied or abject abuse, dominance displays or stigmata/blood/bruises.
Oh, cmon. Do you REALLY think Hirame doesn't know how a spine works?
Stop being a fucking crab. Either that or you are a fucking dumbass idiot.
Who are the Gods of fantasy art?
frazetta is not obscure
Why haven't you bought a screen drawing tablet yet? This baby has everything you'll ever need for only 400$. There's no excuse.
What do you draw? Do you take commissions?
I only been drawing boxes for the last couple of weeks, paper is fucking annoying because I like to do layers, but my shitty 5 years old basic bitch intuos is too fucking small to draw anything. Yes I'm blaming my gear and I'm dire need of my cintiqbux.
me too brother.
seems like marketer speak to me.
Yeah, those communist drawing tablets are way better. Fuck markets.
no thanks. cintiq pros heats up like hell. i dont want to draw on a fucking hot plate
