Any artist's coloring tutorial guide videos you'd recommend? I've seen some artists mention in the past that they have some up on gumroad for purchase, but i don't know which ones are worth it if any at all.

yes, i know it likely depends on what i ultimately want my art to look like, but i would just like to see in general if any of you have something to recommend that worked for you. i figured i can learn from good tutorials then adapt them to the way i want my stuff to end up looking.

i guess just avoid hyperrealistic looking shit that requires 40 hours to complete, because i do not have the patience or time to devote so much into one picture. i'm talking a color render shading process that would take under 3 hours.

I see some improvement. Although in my opinion a lot of it looks traced. Tracing is fine if you're brand new though, since you get to see the contours of the body up close that you'd usually not see upon first glance. For now I would work on values and poses :) keep going anon!

>> No.6679707

Yep, it's mostly tracing :). I've found that if I do something on paper, I can kind of visualize what it might look like traced, so in my way I'm sort of "burning in" that shapes to see them more naturally on the page. Thanks for the tip!

You don't need a perfect circle to draw other forms. Being able to draw a good circle helps, but if you only allow yourself to progress in your illustration after your basic forms are perfect, you won't get anywhere.

I'll repeat myself once more: make a habit of eating well, sleeping well, and exercising. This is NOT a a short-term issue that you can solve with some potion/secret exercise. You MUST play long-term if you want to get better.

Feel free not to believe me, but do yourself a favor: setup an alarm in a few months to recall what I've just told you. If, as I expect, you haven't made much progress, perhaps you'd be more inclined to try it the other way then.

All drugs take back whatever they'll give; it's well-known for caffeine (I've heard many people talking about sleeping better and are more energized after stopping heavy coffee consumption, but you need to give your body time to adjust).

The whole point of being an artist with ADHD is for you to not be able to do anything but draw, if you're forcing yourself to do it, then you won't ever do it enough to actually get good.
Check your priorities, they're very clear with ADHD, either you want to do something or you don't.

Do you think Weebs wouldn’t trash western art as much as they do now if anime art and subculture wasn’t popular to hate back in the 2000s and early 2010s? All the negative reactions they have to non-eastern art regardless of quality seems to be born out trying to get back at the /co/ retards that showed so much disdain towards anime/manga.

Just to let you know:
People didn't shit on anime for its art style
People shat on it because of its childish, immature, and outlandishly perverted content.
The fanbase that consists of basement dwellers only cemented the stereotype

The reason why anime is not hated now is simply because western content became unbearable. People wanted something to replace their entertainment needs

If Western entertainment never fell, anime would continue to be hated by the entire world

>> No.6679609

20th century onwards, there was a oush for more abstract and less direct representational art, even stuff like Impressionisma and even cubism after a while were still too old school. It didn't help that after WW2 Soviet state realism was the thing over in the Warsaw pact countries so the western governments saw a rise in abstract art as a countermeasure, to try to argue that they let any kind of expression fly. Since then, there has been a slow death in terms of ignoring the study of fundamentals in favor of "do fucking whatever"-isms and a push towards simpler and simpler art styles for quick replication and commercialization (i.e., CalArts style). Add in the incessant need of newer-age artists to preach (and not just in an obvious manner like the Xmen, but in a ridiculously patronizing way now), and we arrive where we are today.

Pretty good but you made the lower half the torso too short, particularly when you compare it to the length of the arms. A good measure would be the ribcage ending about where the elbows are and the crotch area at about the point where the wrists would be, if one had their arms down that is.

More than none but less than you're probably assuming. Many backgrounds are just blocks + props. The main difficulty is simply thinking of what to decorate the scene with, and the time-consuming nature of rendering environments. Tracing helps with neither of these issues.

Instead of asking us, why don’t you just try teaching? Start a youtube channel and give it your best shot. See the reception you get, ask your viewers what they want and keep teaching.

We cannot tell you if you’re good at it or not because teaching is a never ending loop of discovery. Once you teach and someone asks questions, you find more things you didn’t think about and have to figure out the best way to convey the answer.

Mainly just questioning if Teaching is an alternative career choice for failed artist like me. I never really heard of an art teacher that can't draw.

>> No.6679317

You don't really have to be able to draw you just have to convince other people you can. Granted if your art sucks it will be a lot harder to attract students to you. The good thing about tutoring though is that it's got virtually no upstart costs so if you want to start you could start advertising your services today.

Also if you want a salaried position you need the actual degrees unless you are going into children's art classes which is essentially more child care than art.
