if i could choose a program to go with, i would've learned sai. i still could but i'm set in my ways.

that said, i like sai a lot. i've been using it for years and i still discover new tricks with it all the time that make it really unique. unfortunately, it will never be more than what it is. pick photoshop, it can do everything sai can do and more (and probably better)

>> No.2818120

It's good for the lineart and the layers, but unless you're coloring something outside of cell shading I would get something different. It is possible to make great art with SAI, there is great art out there made with SAID, but there's a lot more at your disposal now that you can take advantage of.

I use it for animation + base colors before effects. This is it's best use, as far as I'm concerned.

>流*Flow is defined as being "in the zone" when your system processes are overcome with data your mind cannot process to produce a pleasant feeling of losing oneself that ultimately allows one to move past/challenge their current plateau/comfort zone in one's work. Constantly producing flow is so addictive that has been deduced to be one of the key indicators of overall happiness, alongside a certain level of monetary and interpersonal relationship happiness.

To put it plainly, in the great tree of "gitting gud" these are those tiny moments when you are excited that you actually "getting better" if but in a tiny way or if only for a single drawing/moment.

I'm trying to get a better grasp of the idea so I can better explain it to both myself and others. So I am surveying you /ic/, what are your personal experiences with flow? Are there any drawings you feel comfortable posting in which you overcame a personal barrier and felt flow? Do you have any questions about Flow?**

Pic related is a combination of 流 and Flow

I've played video games and jerked off to porn since I was 11. After close to 2 decades of this, my brain's dopamine circuitry was so frazzled I couldn't focus on anything that I wanted to do aside from video games and jerking off. Art was entirely out of the question because I couldn't maintain a good workflow, I would get distracted within 5 minutes. Until I started smoking weed. Being high is the only time that I don't have the nagging cravings for vidya, and it's the only time that allowed me to focus on art for hours at a time.

I'm also slightly autistic though.

Why is it so fucking hard to draw? Like seriously. Seeing so many artists that put their masterpieces on discord makes me feel like killing myself. Like, how the fuck is it that they got it so fast and i didn't? Is there a special trick that im not aware of? Ive been drawing all my childhood up until now and i still cant draw a fucking human, wait, no, i cant draw anything nor think of any design for character, environment or whatever. I literally have no visual library despite playing vidya and watching sf films since i was 6. Reading through fun with pencil was so vague, left me copying these goofy head balls very poorly. I remember when drawing used to be the only thing i enjoyed about life, now ive got nothing left. I... I'm not gonna make it...

Hey op, it's ok.
You haven't improved in a while, which causes frustration, that's normal. I'd go as far as say it's a part of the process.

What you need is learning how to learn before you learn how to draw.
Don't worry about the human body or anything else.
Let's say you want to learn how to draw a duck, in any position, without a reference.

Set up a tilted surface, a piece of paper and a pencil.
1. Learn to draw a dot.
2. Then a line.
3. Then a shape.
4. Then a form.
5. Then, you have to learn what a duck looks like.
Not just "oh it's a bird with two legs", but more like "this is what its skeleton looks like, this is how its joints move, this is where the muscles attach, this is how it walks..."

Now when you want to draw something else, you'll only have to repeat only the last step, that's what we call expanding your visual library, and it never really ends.

This is a summary, your battle plan.
To draw a line properly, you'll have to practice every day. To construct a form properly, you'll have to learn perspective, gesture and render it after wards. Then there is composition, color theory etc, but really, there's nothing more than those 5 simple steps.

Draw every day, be precise, seek advice and criticism, look for inspiration, listen to podcasts and video lectures, read e-books, try out new tools, analyze your mistakes and most importantly, enjoy the process.
We're on our way to draw cool pictures and get paid for it, how fucking cool is that.

I understand that you're full of sour grapes and denial.

you're retarded, pointing no one here have real advice while my post is about others' shitty advice

pointing out that "just practice" is worthless is not an advice on itself, retard

are you serious, of course you're going to assume incompetence

you can't expect competent criteria from someone with incompetent skills, this is a basic for anything in life, you're giving bad advice so lightly

well, it's obviosly butthurting and takes some guts and humility

You probably don't really like the idea of other people getting further ahead from you, in skills and success, faster and with less struggles, so you make it sure they just consider as important "to practice consistently"

I've been on New Masters Academy (I see that many instructors are the same) for 1 month and I think this kind of stuff is just not necessary.

I'm not saying it's bad by any means since there's always something to learn, but it won't get you anywhere further than thorough study of a few good texts.

I've found the multiple instructors on NMA dispersive, many of the lessons were redundant, some instructors were great at drawing but terrible at teaching, some were great at teaching but terrible at putting that into practice for you to see. Also the video format isn't necessarily an advantage, many lessons were full of fluff and it was bothersome to look things up when you needed them. Since there's no textbook to accompany the lessons, you'll end up referencing books anyway.

My 2 cents. If you're short on money, don't worry about these courses unless you're having huge trouble understanding your textbooks.

I bought Vilppu's first Art Mentor's program and participated when it was live and still have the files.

Firstly, you need to have the passion to follow through the lessons with the position of learning and drawing.

If you do buy a lesson, it's on you to make that $300 investment return with your own drawing and digesting of the video content.

The only instructor I've been interested in is Vilppu on both Art Mentors and NMA, this is why I purchased anything from either website and know what to expect from him.

It's apparent even after going through that workshop and studying every so often that my drawings from imagination are still lacking but I've taken on his methodology and do work easier with it.

You can just be a cheapskate and pirate stuff like most people do though; no I won't upload my archive.
