i've never done psychedelics but i imagine it's useful for more creative/abstract works, rather than drawing something more grounded in reality. i also drink a shit ton of coffee on top of the cigarettes, it's really the best combo for focused drawing.

funny that you mention a fasted state, i used to have trouble with disordered eating and i felt way more manic/focused on drawing when i wasn't eating. granted i never accomplished anything good in that time period, but i sure did doodle a lot. but i've never been able to focus on drawing drunk or stoned.

Pretty interesting. What would constitute accomplishing something "good" though?

For me any output is good output as long as I'm drawing.

That looks nothing like a kangaroo, have you ever seen one even on TV you absolute fucking nimrod? What the fuck even is that it looks like a kangaroo if someone who only saw one in a fever dream tried to make it out of meat and fused it with a fucking crab. I'd really like to know the thought process that went behind this Jesus Christ...

It's definitely one of the more universally helpful skills to develop as an artist. What do you mean with you can't afford it? You don't need to go to life drawing classes to learn to draw the human figure. Plenty of really good artists learnt purely from photos and books.

I understand this question as "are live drawings with a model mandatory to draw people well' since the question makes no sense otherwise. The answer is no, you don't need it at all to learn how to draw humans really well.

Remember, /ic/, there have been studies on human motivation that show most goals tend to go really well at the start, flag in the middle when enthusiasm dips, and then get a kick in the ass to completion near the end when deadlines loom. If you're a little behind right now that's normal, but it's time to start pushing. Don't give up.

Is that a flying saucer above the figure's head?

Also, are those flying saucers in the foreground,
at the base of the trees?

If so,
then why are they smaller than the flying saucer that's in the background (above the figure)?

The background/recessed saucer should be noticeably smaller,
unless it's some sort of SUPER saucer, an "Alpha Saucer", if you will
(a concept so ridiculous it makes me want to laugh out loud).

Anyways,
I like the pink sky reflecting off of the water.

It's pretty good.

It is a comforting little painting, if you really want criticism I would say to be more careful covering up all the dark with the highlights, it takes away some of the detail in your trees and bushes

If you start on digital all your lines will be wonky and you'll never learn the motor skills you need to draw properly. You'll hit a hard plateau because you never learn to draw things right the first time, all the comfort of digital drawing, (undo, pen stabliser) will prevent you from learning any real skills.

Buy a Staedtler Mars Technico if you can't be fucked with regular pencils. That way when you when you give up a month from now you won't regret wasting hundreds of dollars on a tablet you never use.

>> No.3567549

Just get printer papers and pencil or pen. We know graphics tablets and pc are cheap as fuck now. But you'll be wasting time learning the hardware (tablet) software (whatever software is bundled with the tablet) then actual drawing skill you can do at the same time.

You have to at least learn to control your hand and stop breaking pencils into paper everytime. Wacom nibs wear off easily and kind of hard to find replacements for sometimes

>but exclusively digital
Learn everything, big mistake to pigeonhole yourself into only using one type of medium. (assuming you mean learning only digital drawing/painting)

If you don't want to pay for paints or tools for coloring your work traditional that's understandable it can be expensive. But everyone can afford some paper, a pencil, pen, conte or charcoal. I wouldn't be too quick to dismiss learning to draw with traditional tools (assuming you mean you're only going to do 100% digital for everything) Trying different stuff out will inform techniques you use in digital and might lead you down some roads that could end up helping your art later on. Something to think about.

The sticky at the top of the page has tons of basic resources. Look up youtube videos for tutorials on how programs work.

>> No.3567798

>>3567464
Gather references of artists you enjoy and do studies of their proportions, color usage, and compositions. Try to recreate their artpieces to the best of your ability, then again, and again. Try to redraw a piece 3 or 4 times, even more if you have patience. Never, NEVER get comfortable with the process of creating and drawing, at least not for your first couple of years learning. If you always start a piece with the head, try starting at the torso for a bit, then start at the feet, it'll give you a better spacial understanding.

You should always be willing to try life studies though, it may be boring, mundane, and mind numbing, but it's essential. For the life studies try not to use outlines and then shading. Use strictly shadows and shades to distinguish shapes and objects. That'll learn you basic form and value separation.

Its actually beneficial that you have 0 experience, because that means you haven't picked up any bad habits that are hard to break once they've become mentally ingrained. Start right by using techniques that will allow you to learn and grow and not plateau your skill constantly.

>I'm too autistic to use a fucking pencil properly but I think I've got what it takes to learn how to draw digitally
Stop gripping it like a retard and learn how to draw in both mediums. If you think your retard strength and abnormal lack of motor skill with a pencil will suddenly disappear while using fragile Wacomshit pens you're wrong.

You don't need to follow a specific order with the books, read what you're interested in to start as long as it's not too advanced and move on from there. If you need to be constantly spoonfed what you need to be working on, get a private teacher from your area or buy into one of those online courses. DON'T get overly bogged down in muh resources, if you spend more time turning pages than actually drawing you're doing it wrong

If you need someone to hold your hand every step of the way then art isn't for you. You already have the resources in front of your face, and a board full of autists who will critique your garbage when you actually have something drawn. Go draw something (with a PENCIL) right now
