C - asymmetry of line
S - repetition of curve
I - wrapping lines
Can someone show how they look like and where you use them?
I find it a little difficult to understand.
Thank you.

You can think of CSI as a method to describe lines. Most lines are either C-like, S-like or I-like. Once you can describe lines, you can use that knowledge to break down seemingly complicated objects into something more understandable.

If you can understand Chinese, this video from Krenz explains it much better than me. No translations sorry.

now that you can draw cubes and cylinders, draw something you think is cool, like trains
draw ~20 pretty good trains, now you know pretty well hot to draw train
then take another other subject, like clocks, 20 pretty good drawing later, you know clock
now put them in 1 piece and finish it

Are you seeing the pattern here?
What exactly is so bad about a painting being 'tacky'? What the fuck does tacky actually even mean you fucking pseuds? Nothing, it has precisely zero meaning. It's a cop out you people use to avoid having to tell everyone that you're a massive fucking gatekeeper faggot who just parrots some opinion you heard from some overpaid journalist so that you can feel superior to everyone. Art exists to be enjoyed for fuck's sake. If it makes people happy, then it's good. It doesn't fucking matter whether or not it's 'tacky'.

I think you're very right. Always felt uncomfortable when people crapped on Kinkade, even when really high level artists were doing it. You're no more a sell-out working for a game or animation studio than you are selling fine-art tailored to a certain demographic, and Kinkad was in no way bad at what he did

How am I supposed to find people to show my drawings to? I'm looking desperately and here's what I've found out so far
>Twitter is not a good place to start an art page, algorithm does not favor you if you don't have any followers. Nobody uses tags, either.
>Reddit is mostly for fanart. There are not a lot of communities where you can just share whatever you want, it HAS to be a fandom sub to get upvotes.
>Instagram is a place where people will like literally anything you post. There is no criticism. There is no "this is good" or "this is bad", people just scroll down and like everything they see.
Do you guys know anywhere I could post my art shit at? I just want a group of people that I can share what I do with.

Why? You seem to have a victim mentality and a chip on your shoulder. You're beginner level and already fussing over muh followers, not healthy. Go to /beg/ and post work there. Download Anatomy for Sculptors and start copying high skill artists that you like. Once you've been told to fuck off to /alt/ and can get several replies per drawing you'll get your followers if you make a twitter. Enjoy still feeling dead inside if that's your motivation though. This is probably the most sincere advice you'll get in this thread, it's up to you if you want to sit around here or get to work

You can’t draw at all, really. Go back to the fundamentals and learn how to depict form.

>> No.5041579

I didn’t mean to be insulting or mean, it’s just that on a technical level, you’re just doodling, at least from the single image you provided.
That is enough technical knowledge to get followers on twitter, but there’s nothing to build off of for a constructive crit, the image 100% muh style and 0% fundamentals, so the only thing you can get are opinions and tastes, which are useless.

Yeah I generally try doing that but sometimes I want to try something different and it’d go badly, my problem probably lies in still not fully understanding the forms of the body and how light affects them, also color theory, temperature etc. there’s just so much it’s frustrating not understanding it all

Honestly looks pretty good if that's your work, you're absolutely on the right track
I'm assuming you're constructing your drawing with 3D forms, so think about how the light affects a certain cylinder, sphere, etc. rather than the whole body -- refinement can come once you've got the basic idea of the lighting down

I started redoing it since that video made me remember that I was approaching rendering wrong. I had my cast shadows and form shadows mixed up, so I went back and removed a lot of random shadows and tried showing a little bit of form, now I re add cast shadows. I try not to get too caught up in rendering like this because I need to remember appealing shapes and lighting is king, I still don’t know how to do intentional shape design. Oh well

I was often told I was talented growing up by family members and friends (art teachers at school however, never used the word, they only ever said I was skilled). Was a 'serious' art student in high school in that I took it up until 18, but I put minimum effort in.
I hardly did anything in my own time that wasn't aimless doodling, so as an adult I'm barely mediocre. Maybe good enough to get a commission from someone with low standards if I put myself out there but I feel I'm still beg tier because there's a lot of basic things I haven't really got down. There are certainly people who were told they were terrible artists growing up who are 100x better than I am.

affix a bullet vibrator to your cock
let it run at a frequency high enough that you're dancing safely below the cusp of orgasm without pushing it over. your wrists will be in cuff links attached to chains that run over your desk in a way that it wont be possible to reach down and pound off, but your hands have full jurisdiction over your desk space
have someone else or a program in control of the remote
until you complete a cumulative eight hours of art, you will be kept perpetually in need without the ability to get off. your capacity to orgasm will be decided solely by your ability to focus and draw for extended periods of time, and the constant stimulation and arousal will keep you motivated to achieve it.
