>> No.3978189

You'd have to post your face pretty consistently to gain much traction that way. Even then, you wouldn't gain the followers that'd commission you so it ultimately is pointless. Since my IG used to be personal, people can easily see my tagged pics if they care. I've noticed a few people will like only those and then follow. But, it's pretty rare that that happens.

If you streamed your work on Twitch though, your looks might come in handy.

This. If you don’t enjoy it to some degree you will never know if the drawing feels right. Sure it’ll be an image of a furry, but it won’t exude the energy or spirit that furries crave from art. Much like a chef, an artist must sample and gain a deep understanding of the thing that they are trying to create if they truly wish to be successful. You have to ask yourself if becoming a furry is worth it.

Minimalistic, simple yet complexed, simpler color palette. Most people who aren’t into art will see Louise B art and think nothing of it but in fact she’s very creatives and her art has multiple perspective even though I think she’s more famous for her amazing sculptures. She’s 1 of my favorite female artist.

Here's how to create original artwork and music from math!

Take pi or any irrational number. Convert it into base 8.

For visual art, assign each digit from 0-7 to a color. Use them in any pattern any way you like.

For music, assign each digit from 0-7 to a piano key. Use whatever chord you like.

>Art is useless
Ever heard that statement? Well, it is COMPLETELY WRONG.
1) From a historical standpoint, it is crucial : this depicts either current stuff more or less accurately
>Oh but we have cameras now,they didn't
AND it conveys what people think about at the time,their views, etc...You're not just looking at a photo, you're looking at the mind of someone too.
2) Good art looks good And has a message to transmit : the more beautiful your representation is, the more it might impact the audience. Hard to tell how magnificent ancient Greece was if you just draw stick figures... Hard to make people think about profound subjects when your message is as stupid as "fanart of characters behaving like prostitutes"...
3) From a business standpoint : sell something.A tangible product. Go ahead, try it. Without art.
You will have a tough time maintaining the interest of your target if what they will use/see everyday in their living room/show to their friends looks terrible or inappropriate.

Now discuss about how "art is useless" (or there's more than these points above)

I'm okay at it and its taken me years. There are absolutely no shortcuts
As a kid I was always "the drawer/artist" and spent a fair amount of time drawing, it was probably always my number one hobbie.
At 20 I realized I didn't really know how to draw anything but faces and spent the next five years studying.
Now at 27 I make commissions doing all sorts of drawing, people, backgrounds, line art style, digital painting style, comics etc. I'm a lot more skilled in variety than a lot of illustrators, but it definitely took years and a lot of tutorials, books and lectures.

I agree it's not much money but a lot of people won't even spend less than that on a tablet and are always looking to cut corners with chink shit. When you're starting and not sure if you'll stick, it can be tough to justify the $100.

I agree but I might recommend gouache over wc as it's easier to an extent and more forgiving (also many watercolorists are going to pick up a white gel pen/tube of white gouache eventually anyway). A primaries+b/w or cmykw can go a long way and get you familiar with water and shapes/composition. Not having to plan as much of the painting out ahead in terms of transparency for watercolor is something that can be better managed when you have more experience painting. And you can always get the white back with gouache.

The colors are a little chalky, definitely "beginner" quality. And you don't need that many colors anyway.

You could try the Windsor and Newton cotman pocket box. It's only like $15 and has cold/warm primaries plus a couple extras. Higher quality IMO and cheaper.

Why would you do that? Cad are not only toxic(assuming you are using the real thing and not a shitty hue) but they produce the most muddy colors possible. If OP is on a budget just grab a cmy triad. For Cyan, get Phthalo blue(PB15) Magenta(PR122) and Yellow(PY3)
