It's over isn't it, this is the artist aspect that you either have or you don't.

I see artists 10 years younger than me invent completely new designs from imagination on stream, in well composed creative poses, with original facial expressions and lots of good looking small quirks, literally line by line with no sketch or underdrawing, with zero reference. This feels unreachable to me, I feel like I haven't made an inkling of progress towards this since I started drawing.

Doodling is 1/4 of my drawing time, I draw something, look at it, go "yep it looks like shit" and have no idea how to make it better or where to go from there, I made no doodling gains, ever

Visualization isn't necessary. It's nice to have I guess, but it's not where your ability to imagine or your drawing ability comes from.
If you want to create from scratch, you have to do so by feeling. Doodling 3D form, tweaking and shaping and experimenting in real time on canvas. It's like playing with Legos or clay, you just build stuff and mess around.
Look into automatic drawing, and check out Steven Zapata's Drawing Meditation series on YouTube- the first video in particular is very useful.

Well if you want to learn how to make cool poses try doing more figure drawing. I found gains in being able to come up with more interesting poses just from figure drawing.

Whats the point of selling digital art?
People hastle me to get off benifits and sell art but this is the prices people expect, plus basically nobody is interested in buying my art in the first place.
I get hella tired easily and would have a mental breakdown slaving away ar making less than enough money to pay by or rent or food. Look at these fucking prices in pic related… Im not working for 15$ every 2 fucking hours.

>> No.6408210

Most people charge more than that, relative to the detail.
Some artists actually enjoy drawing for others, and are willing to take less than it is worth if they enjoy the idea (this isn't good, but it happens).
Some do it simply as a side hobby.
Some are literal teenagers to whom $15 is a meaningful amount of money. That or thirdworlders where $15 a day is a meaningful wage.

>> No.6408303

i mean, no one is forcing you to lowball your rates. the thing about commission work is that you can literally price it at whatever you want. obvious prices would go up or down depending on the artist's skill level, experience, time, and their need for the money itself.

when i price my art, i make sure i'm being paid at least $20/hr for the time it would take to make the artwork

no one can tell if you're getting better if you don't include previous work, anon.
i think the painting is fine shape/proportion/value-wise but lacks detail and interesting color variation. everything aside from the cake is feels cold, grey and clinical-feeling, not sure if that was your intention. but i think it's nice for a study.

Ever since taking up the creative arts I just can't enjoy things anymore. I've become that buzzkill everyone I know probably hates. I used to eat up every new movie or game that came out, share that cool fotm anime girl pinup on social media, but I barely spend time on those things anymore because I'd rather study or create my own things. I just can't help but look at everything under a critical eye now.

Is becoming a hypercritical twat an unavoidable symptom from learning the arts?

>> No.6408118

looking at everything with a critical eye is not the problem, being an annoying faggot is also most modern movies are utter dogshit so your criticism is probably correct and even tame, just dont bother people when they are at least trying to enjoy something, if you cant stfu you shouldnt watch movies with other people or prewatch them sou you know beforehand how underwhelming they are

>> No.6408175

it gets lonely if you obsess over negatives instead of positives but that said, yeah. keeping art in balance often is difficult because it does eat up a lot of time.
at one point i had to straight-up accept that i will never get as far as my buddies in FFXIV's endgame and if i do, it'll only be one class at a later time than everyone else simply because i can't just waste 6 hours a day.
i won't have all the cool stuff, emotes, glams, etc. i won't have a solid list of all level 90 jobs/classes.

but that's ok because i doodle stuff for friends to show thanks for carrying me through content

Someone posted it here once. Basically it was a part of research by some 3 guys. It prevents images/photos from being used in deep fakes or understood by AI (IIRC).

I forget almost everything else about it. The images that they ran through the filter looked like they were covered in spinach after being processed by the AI, instead of altered.

good point. that's a big weakness of ai artists which hasn't been exploited only due to the fact that none have gotten really popular and successful yet. this quality of ai means that the community will eat itself very thoroughly.

You can learn your entire life.

Things like diet, brain damage, lack of sleep and mental illnesses like depression got a lot more impact on your ability to learn than age.

There are people who go to university to learn new professions after 70.

If you are multilingual it has also shown to increase your ability to learn.
>Bilinguals are found to have longer attention spans, stronger organization and analyzation skills, and a better theory of mind than monolinguals. Researchers have found that the effect of multilingualism on better cognition is due to neuroplasticity.

Since a brain can produce new brain cells throughout your entire life age may not even be a factor once all the other factors have been accounted for. It's just that most people tend not to live healthy and have depressions as they age.
