What's a good job to pay bills with while trying to make it as an artist?

I recently left my last job in engineering, after several years of doing this I have no intention of getting another job in engineering since it requires me to devote a lot of my time in and out of work to absorbing and learning new practices. Constantly being immersed in that didn't leave time to work on art long enough for it to take off as my full-time job. My ideal is to make $2400 a month without having to invest more than 40 hours a week, I can work most jobs with technical requirements because of my background.

I'm considering working as a pizza deliveryman since it pays modestly well for the time involved, allows me to listen to e-books on the job for learning, and won't mentally drain me when I go home to work on art. It also gets me out of the house (unlike online jobs). Working as a bar-back also seems pretty nice.

Others recommended transcribing (not very stable since it's on-call), dogwalking (I will be too exhausted when I go home to work on art), house-sitting (more difficult to find work since I am male), waiting tables (extremely stressful and need to be on feet for entire day), or customer support call-centers (does not pay very well).

how much experience do you have as an engineer? I'm surprised you haven't thought of saving money for a year or two then immigrating to some eastern country and work there.

the strong currency conversion should keep you afloat for longer than you've saved for (living expenses wise) and companies there are always looking for experienced engineers for their shit. your years of experience could give you the upper hand and demand less time working. meanwhile, you can take advantage of big name universities to learn some other college course.

Why do you keep your clip attached to your mechanical pencil (or lead holder) /ic/?

Do you dislike being able to comfortably rotate your lead to get a better edge to render with? Surely you don't actually use it to clip to your pocket because you use a pencil bag to carry your materials.

The first thing I do with any newly purchased mechanical pencil (or lead holder) I intend to draw with is to pull off that nuisance clip.

Pretty much this.

It's not a bad thing, it means that you can see your mistakes.

Last time I thought I was good at drawing was when I was around 12 and just getting started.

At 14 I realized that everything I've done up until that point is fucking terrible and that likewise my current drawings are, just that I can't see it because, well, I don't know any better. If I knew better, I'd draw better.

Nowadays I sort of maybe find some of my paintings okay-ish, but not for longer than few days. And that's fine. No way to go but forward. Just keep drawing.

Hi /ic/ I'm new here so please forgive me if my etiquette is poor.

So I'm looking over the tutorials and starting to teach myself to draw, but almost all of them are geared towards drawing people or characters of some sort.

I'm not really interested in drawing people at all. I actually want to learn to paint landscapes, and was planning on using drawing as a bridge to learn form and shade.

Should I still do the beginner tutorials designed to teach me how to draw people? I mean I'm sure the tutorials are useful in general for technique but I can't imagine I can go much further down that road if I'm not interested in people.

Thanks for your help.

That's a good idea, just taking random places in Maps and painting that. I notice your work is digital. Did you start in digital or on paper? I've heard that starting as a beginner to digital is a mistake because working with the physical materials give you a better impression of how to work digital tools. If you did start with digital and you think it's good, could you recommend some entry-tier peripherals?

This art is beautiful and I'd love to be able to make something even half as good as it.

>Do you think I should start with watercolours?
Maybe charcoal and graphite would be a better to start with, since you wouldn't have to worry about color mixing, just values.
Still, watercolors force you to think about shape design and all that. Cheap tube watercolors have worked well in my experience. You are only going to have trouble if you want to make richly colored paintings. As a beginner, you could just use them to color in your drawings at first.

I suggest getting in the habit of drawing landscapes outside, or through the window, then moving into watercolors if you enjoy it.

>> No.2872279

I figure if I start with watercolours I'd probably start by painting airy scenes like rolling hills or small ponds.
I've heard charcoal is really messy. Is graphite a bit better?
If I'm drawing with graphite/charcoal, how could I colour them in? I imagine the purpose of these materials is to focus on shadow rather than hue and so you'd be painting over the top of your shading.
Unfortunately I live in the city, so the best I could do is paint the house directly opposite mine. I'm sure there's lots of stuff online I can draw from as well, though.

Learn and master perspective and construction by studying environments, move into rendering and learn composition skills.

>> No.2872335

Since I started painting I've been noticing how great hollywood is in that regard. Even some of the worst movies had great visuals, beautiful environments and cool designs all around.

As an example, the Total Recall remake. Shitty movie. I hated on first watch, specially lens flare and how it butchered the original, but a few weeks ago I watched a few scenes again, and it was a whole new experience. Even rooms, or simple things like chairs and tables made me moist.

It's obvious to me now how the scifi genre specially have always been carried by masters concept artist and designers.
