Is it possible to balance learning art with learning another extremely demanding skill like learning an instrument or language? If I really want to be a great artist, and say am in a place where I need to "make it" in 1-2 years, should I just give up everything else and focus on drawing?

Drawing is much much harder to learn than an instrument or an language. If you focus everything on it, like super autistic about it, in 2 years you MAY get to pro level with a language or an instrument, but not while doing something demanding like drawing.

I need a bit of advice, I've been working under the theorical proportions of 6 heads tall for a person, but if I make someone taller or shorter for stylization or the like, I don't know how to properly proportionate the rest of the body (upper body, lower body, ribcage). Like, if I make someone 8 heads tall, or I make a 4 heads tall shortstack I struggle to find a fixed point for the size of the chest, waist, hips and the remaining on legs. Can someone give me any advice?

Your immediate impression of this image is that it looks cool, but then you realize that it's empty of actual content. All you have is a humanoid figure and some bottles, every other part of the image is pure nonsense. No face, no hands, the clothing design is random, it can't decide if it wants to be snow or smoke, the posture is schizophrenic. The hype over the AI art is a symptom of consumption culture where all that matters is first impressions even if that's not actually what makes something stick.

I mean true, i think it has been discovered that the average normalfaggot spends mere seconds looking at a picture, closing it and never looking at it again. the AI is not a big deal on its own, but since it molds so well with the simple normalfag brain, it suddenly becomes a big deal. idk what to say, these retards used to browse insipid soulless traced shit anyway, so they'll just switch to the new garbage instead. on one hand I don't give a shit what these consoooomers concern themselves with now, because I didn't before. on the other hand, it's impossible to not notice how cringe and low IQ normalfaggots are when they're so loud about it

I have my own reasons for being afraid to draw right now which I can explain if anyone asks, but I feel fucking pathetic for panicking when picking up a pen or a pencil. I've been drawing for years, there was a lot of joy in creating with my artistic journey but now I'm thinking there's no point anymore. I would say it's artblock but I've never experienced anxiety when having artblock before. I tried to draw earlier and it turned out like shit from how panicked I was. Is anyone else having this issue? How does one overcome this shit? Is this it for me anons?

your perception of color changes depending on the surrounding colors. Because the sea is blue, because their is a transitional grey color between the sky and the sea, and because the sky is being compared directly against the incredibly warm colors of the boat and person, the sky looks blue by comparison

Welcome to the OC Drawthread:

Draw someone's OC or post your own. All skill levels are welcome.

Rules:

1: Post a brief backstory if your OC has one.

2: Keep it fairly SFW. Lewds are fine but no explicit porn.

3: This is NOT a request thread. Artist Only. No spamming OC/infodumps for multiple threads without delivering.

4: Be sure to thank Drawfrens for their hard work as soon as you can, it's just common courtesy :^)

More technically, the goal of a public beating/execution is to burn it into the brains of the crowd (esp. their amygdalas) the connection between the crime in question, and violent physical retribution. This is the primary purpose of making it a public event. But even in the parts of America that still do the death penalty, they manage to fuck it up by doing it in a closed, quiet room with an injection administered in a faux-medical setting, out of sight and out of mind leaving nothing more than an abstract concept for the public to ponder. No, it's SUPPOSED to be violent and traumatic, to scare the shit out of anyone watching who might be prone to contemplating committing similar crimes. It gels well with how our brains subconsciously process fear and aversion, which is why it has always been done in every culture (minus our very recently malfunctioned western societies).
