Hey guys, I've been thinking, do any of you have ways/habits/routines that make drawing comfy for you?
I wish it was possible to draw whilst cuddled up laying in bed or something like that, it's a real pain in the back to haunch over a graphic tablet on my desk all the time. Any tips/ideas appreciated

I have a kotatsu (heated table with blanket) that I set my monitor and tablet up on, plus a super comfy floor chair.

Sometimes I bring my tablet PC to my bed and scribble away on that.

I actually use the type of armchair in that image with a portable screen tablet on my lap. Super comfy laid back posture.
I'm sure if you have a regular graphics tablet with a long enough cable, you could just put it on the wideass armrest, they make good side tables for keyboards/mice/etc.

Regardless of your setup, always get up and stretch every hour, unless you want to be a cripple.

I understand that it’s timeless and all, but sculptures were never meant to be left blank in classical Greece.
We should stop stupid imitations of the past and go ALL THE WAY BACK to how things were really supposed to be and add some color and more soul to classicism.

Makes perfect sense if you consider the climate.
The modern perception of ancient greeks and romans as autistic, analytical purityfags is more of north european thing. Especially germanics.
It makes more sense for people living in warm climates with access to cool shit like pigments, spices, gems, textile, etc. to make art that is colorful and gaudy. Something that is nowadays perceived as oriental than european. Imagine pagan temples adorned with psychedelic ornaments, full of brightly painted pottery, people wearing expensive textiles with elaborate patterns, etc.

Deep Work was mentioned which is great, but before that I’d recommend his newer book called Digital Minimalism. It has a lot of great info and advice for dealing with our use of technology and turning it into a tool rather than an addiction.

Also download cold Turkey, keep your phone off or in a different room, use time blocking to know when you need to focus and if you are too addicted to delete shit then only check it during scheduled breaks.

It’s not that hard to go without constant internet use after the first few days.

Speaking as someone who was super addicted and then essentially quit the internet for a year. I have much more control and intention, better focus, and less depression.

I use workrave, keeps me working and tells me when the times I've set for stretching breaks have started/ended, so that I don't decide to take a break and end up spending hours off task. It's helped a lot. I set aside a certain amount of time for art every day and stick to it until it's over. As for the phone I just turn it off until work time is over.

You guys don´t get it, this piece is clearly showing "realism" - it is a cocept-art - so it´s important to atleast have good and acceptable anatomy/perspective.
his figures doesn´t represent midgets, their are adult body-types and one is a young adult.
It´s not about perfect proportion, it is about function and clearly he messed it up. Just look at the archer and observe him and you will see how unatural he appears.

Mostly just practice, try doing a lot of gesture drawings of hands and study the anatomy.
You can ofcourse construct the entire hand out of boxes but in my own experience that ends up making them look very stiff if you don't really understand the underlying anatomy.

I feel this. They ask you to be original so they can hire you to work on yet another generic game which is either medieval fantasy,cyberpunk, post apocalypse ,adventure temple or sci fi soldier on an alien planet.
So you can either work on your originality and then you don't even know how to do the typical stuff plus they can't project themselves hiring you because you're doing something too out there OR you practice the typical stuff but you are too boring and forgettable.

Big studios do not want good artists, they want the artist equivalent of a factory workers to do just a single process in the production pipeline. Until that artist burns out then fire them and get the next one.That is how it works, nobody cares if you know your fundies or what is your overall skill if you can do a single process well that is all, that is all they need the rest is of course a bonus but won't earn you a better pay.
