So I'm 15 and I was wondering what the best time to start drawing seriously is. Am I at the right age or am I too old?

The best time to start was 12 years ago, the second best time is today, mah dude.

I started age 21 and am a working pro at age 25 now.

I will advice you to leave 4chan though, it keeps you from being productive (look at me, not working rn!)

I have a Wacom tablet and I've had a lot of problems with it, but they seem to be really popular. The reason I got one in the first place was because I had heard so many people say they were the best.
It's the only tablet I've ever owned, so I don't have anything to compare it with.

24HD Cintiq here. I definitely work faster, once I got used to the new arrangement of express keys. I'm more comfortable, too, because I can move the drawing surface around, whereas before the monitor never moved. I put mine on a dual-monitor arm, for even more mobility than the massive stand it came on. It's a lot more precise than using a traditional tablet, it's more like actual painting where your hand is where the art is.

Just buy a Huion standard Tablet. I got one a year ago and literally 50% less of a Wacom one Price and 50% bigger. I though Wacom was already a meme.

>> No.3035556

Ah it sounds awesome... Do you make art for a living? How long have you had the 24HD?

I've been eyeing the 22HD myself... My qualm is that I'm not a pro (at least not yet!). Would you recommend only buying the cintiq once you go professional?

>> No.3035703

I bought a 13HD because it was on sale and I was curious about using a screen tablet.
I felt like I improved just using it to be honest. It was much easier to draw directly and it was quicker to draw. I know people say cintiq's don't improve your skill but I definitely feel like my anatomy has improved since I started using one. By the way, I am totally used to a non screen one, it wasn't a problem of me not being able to use it or something.
I'll probably upgrade sometime in the future but the 13HD is a good entry level one IMO. My only problem is that the backlight is a little dim for me, but I have eye problems so it might just be something that really just affects me but is fine for others.

>> No.3035985

I was worried it would feel too cramped, but now I'm seriously considering the 13HD. When did you get yours? Would you recommend getting the 13HD now over the cintiq pro 13 that was just released?

ladies and gentleman, let us get some objective critique up in here!

image1: Latest work
image2: objectively Best work
image3: obviously unfinished sketch/wip

>(NOTE: concept art will not be unfairly judged as "unemotional" or etc, you need not state the purpose and intent of your work, and I will adjust my judging to fit your needs, i am well versed on artistic intention, can't say the same for whomever else judges)

each category in a CLuSTeR score system, or CLSTR

1 - complete failure to encompass this quality
2 - brief signs of potential
3 - obvious signs of intentional work, succeeds somewhat.
4 - Successfully transmutes said quality.

There are five categories, Character, Lapse, Super, Tear, Response (explained in next post)
the best score is 44444
the worst score is 11111.

>all replies must be numbers such as 44444 or 43233

>> No.3035096

Character - (how much do you believe the person cares and has invested in their artwork?)
1) obviously doesn't care 2)could care more 3)talented hobbyist 4)future master

Lapse - (if you forsee the potential in this person, what is the first step they should take to achieve it?)
1)do a 180, abandon all ye have learned 2) take a hint 3) you are aware of your mistakes, just implement them 4) your self judgement is sharp

Super - (what is objectively good about the artworks?)
1) there isn't anything objectively good about this artists works
2) there are some areas that are objectively good.
3) most of it is good, but it's lacking that last bit.
4) objectively perfect, (in terms of skillfulness x representation)

Tear - (emotion, does the work make you feel ?)
1) no attempt was made to capture humanity
2) some attempt was made, but failed.
3) an attempt was made, but is sophomoric.
4) shows maturity in choice of subject matter and executes it tastefully.

Response (who is the artist influenced by? is it obvious?)
1) the artist clearly is an "originale" and does not care about the art scene in general/other artists and does not comment on it.
2) the artist cares about art history, but does not successfully respond to it.
3)the artist is responding somewhat and succeeds at some level.
4)the artist is well aware of art tropes, the do's and don'ts and doesn't fall into cliches.

>> No.3035116



And really, your best work is third one. You don't even understand at the basic level why, thinking that a turd in the middle is best because it is made with mud and looks "most realistic", like the idea a n00b would have about proper academic figure study.

You don't care about your art because you aren't analytical about it, you are obviously lazy and retarded but focus all the wrong ideas /ic/ feed you with about studying and improvement.

Go jump on a dick.

Like you would assume he would have given up about now.

I feel this proves that talent is stronger than motivation. You can have all the motivation int the world, but if you have no talent you will not make it.

>You can have all the motivation int the world, but if you have no talent you will not make it.

This is horse shit. Here's how you "make it":
1. Develop a portfolio of work you can sell
2. Research clients that use your type of work
3. Contact relevant prospects
4. Hope they have work for you to fulfill

Most people just focus on step 1. They never bother to actually try to make the connections they need to make. Many people spend all of their time developing the technical skills required to run an illustration business. However, a vast majority of folks completely neglect improving their actual business skills.

Use green instead of blue in the cooler areas of the face. The key is in the actual name of it - "olive". There's a reason people called that skin olive colored. Someone with olive skin will have more greens and browns in the cooler parts of the face, and less "peach" overall.
