Considering that the urge to Make Stuff is rare at best,I try not to discourage people with their earnest but inept attempts. My first thought when confronted with something like the pic posted is Who would pay Money for This? In other words, what of the many varied markets would this be appropriate for, or at least what the budding artist should consider applying forethought to their future work with this goal in mind. And my choice for this picture? Greeting cards. Peruse the stock next time you are food shopping, and note the vast variety of styles and composition, and I can see this stylized cartoon for adolescents ("Da Bois Hoid Birthdaze Was DOWN Wid Diz!"). Or similar. When the target market is Befuddled Middle Aged Suburbian Housewife,you won't get far with Rembrandt.
Atm I am thinking of a new TShirt design, and I tried going for Ultra Cartoony,and at least in this rough I lack that knack. I remember seeing a tshirt from the late 70s that had some Robert Crumb-esque big nosed guy in a trenchcoat with the words sandwiching the image :"Do Unto Others,then SPLIT!". Squat,disreputable, cool,hip,amusing,amused,easily understood by the broadest demographics of potential customers, and I will try many times to get all these design elements incorporated into the Final Product.

I just wanted to ask a question. For those that have designed their own original characters, what was the thought process behind the colors you chose? I’m currently stuck figuring out what colors to use for my OC. I saw some posts online saying that it should reflect the character’s personality, but I’ve seen many instances where it doesn’t. I’m not sure what to do.

5 replies omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No.7198838

as far as color choice goes, just make sure the colors compliment eachother and don't clash, unless you want to draw vomit

>> No.7198870

The colors look nice to me and make sense for their personality. A female character that is very shy, or that is very practical and doesn't care for fashion (as an example) probably won't choose to wear bright colors so I'd give her a more neutral palette. A character that is very feminine might like to wear pinks and pastels. A character that has to wear a school uniform does not get to make decisions about the colors they wear so their personal aesthetic preferences will be communicated in other ways like their phone case, how they decorate their room and so on.

>> No.7198878

60-30-10 percent rule and color schemes can help you out picking colors. Also obvious color analogies like red - angry, blue - calm/smart, yellow - energetic/joyful, etc. There're still a ton of exceptions. Just pick something you like which also fits the character's setting.

I think character's shape, interesting clothing and hair is way more important in a memorable design, so decide how the character looks first. A good character design will be recognisable even by looking at it's silhouette

90% of drawing for me is problem solving and exploring options. I never "just draw" I have to research references, try dozens of different compositions, experiment with a hundreds brushes until I get something that looks good, construct for hours to see if my ideas is even within my abilities... And then after I draw something, its shit so I have to spend MORE hours fixing errors and saving it from being a turd, and that's not drawing, its more like surgery or troubleshooting.

On the flip side, I can play a game that I know is good and won't jerk me around searching answers in the dark.

not real.
technology is designed to suck up your attention and turn you into retarded cattle that exists solely to generate ad revenue. you need above average willpower to overcome the pull, so since the barrier of avoiding "adhd" requires you to be above average, you get a lot of idiots who succumb to it and blame it on a made up disorder. you need a purpose, a reason to not spend your afternoon watching video essays and gooning, most do not have this.

your attention is your most valuable thing. your attention lets you create good art, enjoy a cup of coffee or be fully present while with people or in nature. and technology robs you of this and you get nothing in return but temporary placation.

it honestly baffles me that people will raise kids with a constant stream of brainrotting, instant gratification content, then wonder why they can't focus for more than 5 seconds and blame it on a condition. i suppose its easier than admitting you are a shit parent that allowed your kid to give themselves measurable brain damage. i will say however that it becomes harder and harder to resist the pull of technology as these systems become more and more sophisticated at sucking up your attention. you need to be wary of how much you allow yourself to get sucked in.

the meds are somewhat effective at making you less of a drooling retard, but ultimately less sustainable than picking up meditation and imposing limits on your technology use.

>Should I draw from reference or imagination to begin with?
you dont even need to do either. Just use AI. Heres 5 reasons to use AI instead of drawing.
Using AI art instead of traditional drawing can offer several advantages, depending on the context and objectives. Here are five reasons to consider:
Speed and Efficiency:
Time-Saving: AI can generate complex artwork in a fraction of the time it would take to draw manually.
Rapid Prototyping: Artists and designers can quickly create multiple iterations and variations, allowing for faster decision-making and experimentation.
Access to Advanced Tools and Techniques:
Sophisticated Algorithms: AI tools often leverage advanced algorithms and machine learning techniques to produce high-quality, intricate designs that might be challenging to create by hand.
Style Transfer: AI can easily replicate or blend artistic styles, enabling artists to explore and apply different aesthetics without extensive skill in each style.

>> No.7199001

Accessibility and Inclusivity:
Lower Skill Barrier: AI art tools can be used by individuals with varying levels of artistic skill, making art creation more accessible to a broader audience.
Assistive Features: AI can assist artists with disabilities by handling complex aspects of the drawing process, enabling them to focus on creative direction.

Reduced Labor Costs: For commercial projects, AI can reduce the need for extensive labor and potentially lower production costs.
Resource Efficiency: AI tools often require less physical material and workspace compared to traditional drawing, which can reduce overhead costs.
Innovation and Creative Exploration:
New Possibilities: AI can inspire new forms of artistic expression by generating ideas and patterns that a human might not have considered.
Enhanced Creativity: By handling routine or technical aspects of art creation, AI allows artists to focus more on conceptual and creative aspects, potentially leading to more innovative outcomes.
These advantages make AI art a compelling option for various applications, from commercial design and entertainment to personal artistic exploration and experimentation.

>> No.7199083

I am an aphantasic working full time as a storyboard artist. I need references to work lol, cant do shit by myself that doesnt like like crap.

I still need to conceptualize the ideas I have floating of what I WANT before searching for references, normally I wrote them down and see where I go from there. Specially for concept art pieces.

I think for most artists is a mix of both, or extreme cases like myself or the other side of the spectrum where insane people like Rembert Montald is.

You need to find a point where you feel comfortable.
