Everything is art. Mangas, Rembrandt, Beuys, Bob Ross. So the term art is pointless.
What you call highskill-art is often just illustration, uselessly fixated on imitating reality, without delivering an artist position.

Well, I'm willing to agree to disagree.
it's just that I have a traditional painting background, and I find painting directly to be a lot more enjoyable than using a program interface to tweak settings and stuff.
But if you could post some paintings you enjoy done with a shader/filter/pass workflow, I'd really appreciate it. Just for educational / inspirational purposes. I'm always willing to concede my points and admit I'm wrong if the evidence is staring me in the face.

Oh well, good luck and hope you'll find what you're looking for.
But you should definitely look into getting a cgpeers account, it's basically the only place to reliably get art related video tutorials.

Another advice I could give you is, if you're looking for references to study, you could download models off of sketchfab and then import them into a 3D rendering software of some kind, and do an ambient occlusion render of them, to get access to effectively limitless supply.
Some models on sketchfab have AO baked in and available right through the interface, but most don't.

Yeah, choosing what kind of workflow to use/invent is subjective and dependent on the person, which is why I've been saying exactly that. The first post wondered what reason one could have to use passes, I'm just trying to answer that. As for an example, I don't collect any specific pieces of artwork, so I don't have one at hand. A quick search I found on Google may be interesting enough, I think.

Basically, can we boil down, seriatim, what did he (and Loomis in his explanation) tried to say to us. Also they are not the first artists to mention the ultimate impotance of proper handling of halftones (Sargent, for example), and there is barely any info on that. What I undestood:

1) Texture is a part of the light halftone
2) Color vibrance is a part of the light halftone
3) Picture halftones in light lighther, then they appear to be.
4) Picture halftones in shadows darker, then they appear to be.

Something else? I'm interested in how you interpret this and maybe how you it clicked with you when you were practising.

Sorry for my spelling.

Fulltime illustrator here. I've done art for mostly everything - books, movies, video games, slot machines, board games, misc web stuff etc. Also have worked as a full time wagecuck illustrator and now am currently a freelance illustrator.

Here's my overall take on things: If you're living alone or young, being an illustrator is a cool job since you only have yourself to provide for. If you have a family or dependants, it sucks. Like others have said in this thread, there's no real career advancement apart from being an art director of sorts. There's only a few high paying art related jobs out there. If I had to re-roll like I'd pick a job that brings in the shekels first and foremost and then focus on anything art related as a hobby.

One piece of advice I would give to aspiring artists or those looking to work as an illustrator - work on your goddamn portfolio. You need a shitload of great stuff to look at before you get those call backs. Otherwise you're just another brick in the wall. Also learn to have thick skin about how good your art is. If its shit, don't defend it and do mental gymnastics. Fucking work harder and get better.

Only the top 3% or less get those glam jobs and patreon bucks. The rest will struggle and die.

Today we live in a time where you can literally draw anything. You can see any kind of sight there is to see with just a few clicks. References aren't limited to your city walls anymore. You're connected to every artist in the world past and present, incredibly spoiled in terms of possible inspiration. Photography is a thing now, releasing artists from obligation to work as a camera and free to play with reality or stick to it as they like. Digital art means even more tools and accessibility to drawing itself, without stopping you from using traditional ones too. You no longer need a master to accept you for training, though the option still exists, you can find any resource you need to learn online. Yes the commercial world sucks and only cares about money, and the accessibility and visibility the internet brings means there's lots of shitty artists, but if you care about art at all there has never been a better time than now in all of history to be an artist.

Could be anything really. I used to live in Miami and work around ultra high net individuals. You have to understand that for them 120k is chump change, it barely even registers. The reason it’s most likely not money laundering (which, don’t get me wrong, does happen often in the art world) is because whoever bought this would know that it would become a high profile story, and when you’re laundering money there’s really no reason to bring attention to yourself, especially when it’s just as easy to purchase a boring painting that no one would pay attention to for the same amount.

This is most likely some deal struck between the gallery, the artist, and the buyer for a mutually beneficial result of publicity for the artist and gallery and some kind of handout or favor for the buyer.

I have been painting for a few years but never properly studied or practiced anything. I would like to start over at the beginning now and practice the fundamentals.

I found this site and it seems quite promising. The first few lessons are all about line confidence and drawing a bunch of cubes and cylinders to get a grasp on 3d space.

>> No.4245946

Every artist follows a logical continuity of adopting more and more complex concepts on their path towards mastery.
It's something like
> linework > shape > form > perspective > subject > composition > abstraction > idea
eg. you can't render a bicep muscle properly if you don't know how to draw a cylinder in perspective and you can't draw a cylinder in perspective if you don't know how to draw an ellipse. Makes sense, no?

Well Hampton skips teaching you about linework, form, perspective or design and jumps straight into abstract ideas like feeling the flow of gesture, because if he didn't, the book would be 600 fucking pages long.

I’m definitely a better musician than artist, but once I had started my family, I lost all desire to go back on any tour only to return and do a job search for a few bucks more than minimum wage. So I personally concentrate on becoming a better artist with the end goal of either illustrating books or doing t shirt graphics.
I definitely am done being a wage slave, and thankfully after buying the house of my wife’s dreams, she no longer wanted to be a full time parent, so she went back into the work force, and I stay home and grind all afternoon while my kids are at school.
