I took the brent eviston basic drawing course and apparently he did way more just about every day for a year when he was a student. I didn't commit that hard but I started just drawing pages of circles and ovals of various sizes and it's helped me immensely with drawing curves so I'd say it's helpful for at least something.

i am looking to take on a student that is interested in learning figure drawing from me
weekly payment, critique, assignments, answering questions
you are expected to dedicate at least three 20 min sessions of drawing per day on assignments (=1hr total not counting breaks inbetween) and produce one "finished" picture every 14 days
the more you practice the more critique i will have to compile for you, the more bang-for-your-buck you get out of this
starting at $1 and increasing by one dollar each week - the more you improve (=the smaller the gap between your skill and mine is) and the higher the payment rises, the worse this mentorship deal becomes, the more incentive for you to end the deal - thus preventing endless milking of art students

payment in xmr preferred
if you insist on paying with paypal your price will start at $5 instead (paypal fees are to blame)
if you insist on paying with eth or btc, your price will start at $5 instead (transaction fees on btc and eth are to blame)

if you are interested, reply with an overview of your last weeks practice, a description of your goal in art, a collage of at least 8 pictures you admire strongly, your age rounded to nearest multiple of 5, known mental health issues especially your self assessment of adhd, autism, depression provided you are comfortable sharing it publicly here

communication will be off-site using an anonymous messaging app (session)

shizos are going to love inserting themselves into this to get attention - so as a precaution there will be no replies from me aside from inviting individual people to talk on session after 24hrs. for crabs trying to shit on me i want to leave this message in lieu of a personal reply:

you are very kind! dont be mislead though. my drawings are more like very elaborate careful paintings using a thin brush - that is to say they take a very long time still. i have yet to improve my speed to capture a spontaneous quality in my figures
no specific course or teacher, i honestly attribute 95% of my improvement to this practice routine i (autistically, over-analytically) developed >>7161375

sorry, no. my pc becomes literally unusable (for drawing) if i try screencapturing at more than 1 fps (and even then, it microstutters at about 1 stutter per second lol)
the only snapshots of a pictures progress are the underlying layers like in this example >>7167821
which all get reduced in opacity, merged down and drawn over until there is only the final image left

as for more "conventional" drawing and painting - i almost never do them anymore to focus completely on iterative figure drawing (and adding values only to make the final product a bit prettier for customers)

i am using sai (version 2) so i could not really give you my brushes if i had any specific ones

my one and only brush for drawing, sketching, linework (aside from calligraphy) is a round brush with slightly softened edge, with strong pressure sensitivity in opacity, slight sensitivity in size, and a weak "blur" / "smudge" component (i would advise against using smudging brushes usually, but i got used to "destroying" an underlying brush stroke by placing another stroke on top. the weak blurring effect destroys the underlying brush strokes edges and the eye can focus on the stronger top brush stroke more easily. it is a matter of convenience while i am sketching, when actually drawing i press down hard enough to cover the underlying strokes either way, regardless of blurring or not

(pic related, ive posted it before... sorry. here you can see the same brush at various sizes and various (unfinished) stages of a sketch to get afeeling of how it behaves. large soft brush strokes at the beginning of the sketch which "blurr themselves" into being vague, and increasingly smaller and smaller and more decisive strokes which due to a smaller brush size look sharper. basically the hard round brush meme of doing everything with the same brush. its nothing special, only i have gotten used to it completely)

also i should note, the size sensitivity serves only to make each stroke itself a bit prettier, when i start a sketch with a large brush size, i do not press harder to make it bigger, i increase the brush size itself and press down very lightly to create very broad and very vague suggestions of shapes. do not make the mistake of trying to cover a wider range of brush sizes with pressure alone! you will drive yourself insane as i have before i understood this

okay i just got home, i will contact you individually on session when i wake up, for now take this so work can start without delay because of me, the beginning stages have barely any opportunities for individual critique anyways. you all seem non-shizo enough for me to wait until tomorrow until i can see more of your work and what your self imposed goals are.

do not stress about the first exercises too much especially the "face gesture" experiment. try your best, dont force yourselves.
yes its "infodump 2" because i was further along with this one, and the "infodump 1" is not ready yet lol. in my defense, you are all starting at one dollar for this week, dont expect me to bend over backwards just yet ;^)

on a serious note, i am surprised this many people would want me to help them. i would be flattered if i was not still stunned and in disbelief rereading your posts. i hope i can live up to your expectations



dont misunderstand "assignments" as life-or-death homework. they are suggestions for you until everybody has their own path towards their goal planned out. by all means treat your art seriously but do not let anxiety infect you just because you have agreed to pay a random on the internet a single dollar to start giving you critique. i am mentioning this just in case one of you has issues with these kinds of crippling expectations

You can’t work any faster than this, because of that, at the very least, you should try to enjoy whatever time that you *are* able to draw - you should give yourself credit for drawing at all between balancing a job; many-a-post I’ve seen other anons describing it as impossible trying to draw after work. Hope the caffeine usage doesn’t burn you out though - I always felt like that extra energy has to come from somewhere, and it always catches up with you eventually

Slow down (I’m not talking about quality over quantity, I mean just in general, slow down)

This was in a hug-box, sjw modern art type art school too, yet those people couldn't hold back from telling him how badly he drew.

And yet you draw worse than him.

What's your dream project? It all comes to that. Just the idea of "I want to be an artist", never works by itself. There must be a deep motivation. Something you want to do or express. An story, a fetish, an obsession. Something that force you to keep going even when you suck. You will fall to a bottomless hell, and keep falling, but there must be "that" something that keeps you going. And keeping going against all odds is the only way to get gud, and "make it". It may take more than a decade, or a life time, you don't know. The only thing you know is "that" thing that push you forward towards that goal. If you don't have "that", then you will be in 'wanna be' limbo for all eternity. "Wishing to wish" something that just it is not in you at all.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful response, it honestly helps me a lot. My "artistic vision" is difficult for me to put into words, but I definitely have one. I like drawing excessively large and repeating patterns that are tedious and take hours to do, not because it's difficult to do it, but just because I want to and no one else will. On average I spend 2-4 hours drawing on each weekday and upwards of 8 on weekend. I have done this for years. I like making something that really "exists" in a tangible way. I like showing that I was there and that I did something. I like doing pointless things for hundreds of hours just to say "see, I really do exist."

If I had a room to use to create a showcase, my dream would be to plaster the floors, wall, and ceiling in my doodles. Then I'd like to hang more down from the ceiling with fishing line so that you can't physically move without pushing through them

Head anatomy is a very hard thing to start with
Do you copy any plates at all? (loomis, hampton, morpho, etc)
You want to do memory copies too (a certain # of hours after having finished the original copy; do it again from memory, compare it to the reference and note what areas you forgot, then wait another day and repeat) and solidify what you learned eventually by doing loose doodles / sketches where you try to incorporate the forms / shapes you got from doing the copy originally

Form was felt; looking forward to it

There was a lot of criticism from others, from which I realized that drawing was not my thing. All this is meaningless without the talent to simply draw a cube in perspective, correctly compose a composition of shapes, and expressively depict anatomy. There are talented people and untalented retards in these threads. Ironically, I used to think about this in the context of the exact sciences, where a mathematically gifted person solves a given example by going beyond the basic formula, and the retard simply follows it, simply copying the solution. This happens in writing music, books, learning languages, sports and other crap. That picture from /r9k/ with the football player chad and the girl kissing him is presented as a figurative achievement of perfection by the artist, when the football player is an artist who has comprehended all the rules and principles, and the girl is his desired image which he can perfectly draw with his excellent skills. In the end, my thoughts about the determinism of the will are confirmed by Howie and a lot of anons drawing crap. What you want to draw, what you can draw and how you draw it are completely different things, and a talented artist mixes them all into one. I would like to show creative nihilism, but that would be self-deception, because only your crap and the crap of people on the same level as you have no value. I really hate you all, largely not because of your talent, envy, but for personal reasons. Reflection makes the idea of something more, a dream, nonsense and rubbish; you need to return to reality in time, in which you are just a small and offended crab, destined not to get out of the bucket, but to be eaten, before that you just dive deeper into your essence.

when I first got into it I was extremely inconsistent, but have worked on my industriousness to the point where I have drawn fairly consistently for the past few years and for the better part of a year have been drawing every day. my point is that a work ethic can be cultivated, you don't have to be a naturally hard-working person. start small, gradually build up, and you can make a lot of ground.

Let's face it, most people should leave these threads and not litter them with their garbage, there should be 10 or even less people left here whose progress is really high and they deserve to be artists... It's just that the majority still believe and try, and those few with talent they show leniency, but even so this endless whining about obstacles is a manifestation of the true meaning of your soul. Subconsciously you understand that your true essence cannot draw, but your consciousness copes, you post your drawings, you want criticism, and you get it, but what in the end? Look out the window, look at this janitor, he is honest with himself and his consciousness knows its place, it is united. The main problem is that you are a janitor but want to be an artist, you are a janitor but want to be a programmer, you are a janitor but want to have a girlfriend, you are a janitor but want to write books, you are a janitor but want to write music, you are janitors but want be something more than who you really are.

I do not mean this in a rude way, as I hope you can understand where I'm coming from, but I am skeptical whether you actually believe that. of the people who have stated something similar to you, I would venture to say that a vast majority were not indifferent about their life and more specifically their shortcomings. if they genuinely believed that it didn't matter because "the conclusion is exactly the same," then there would be no sense of regret. perhaps you will be an exception, but that is very unlikely imo.

All steps along the same path to GMI. Let us keep drawing.
Beautiful (thousands of these). Good - hatching shows you’re getting the most basic of 3D form down.
You can pick anything then and see where trying to draw it daily takes you; if you find something more interesting than another you can look up reference for it and try copying it

Good form on the pig, wonder if equipping it with different shit makes it faster at finding more mushrooms
Also mine

I’ll let you know how it goes. It took me 4 years however, to produce one animation which was anywhere near the quality of say, Yeero’s first animation he had ever uploaded to the internet (on his old Tumblr account), so I feel like 1.5 years isn’t enough time for me to learn art fully either (or even to any decent or acceptable extent); if there’s a bell curve of people with talent / learning speed, I’m no doubt on the far, far, left side of that bell curve. I’ll try my best though and let you know how that shit goes. Odds are you’ll be disappointed though. (Hell it was about seven years before I even grokked wrestling, though that’s another story altogether)

My mind is literally resistant to learning. I’m certain most people who have already made it have the drop on me (started before me) by 10+ years, but I try my best nevertheless, for however puny of a time that 1.5 years of drawing mileage might be.

I just like drawing.

Then there must be some misunderstanding here - I try to do memory copies more than a week later after I originally copied it, I have not previously “shown my work” before this, but I can show you the exact plates that I’m trying to reproduce from memory, and wherever I can’t (which is often), I am trying my damndest to substitute in some type of remotely close set of shapes that I can muster up that will still represent that I had learned something from copying said plate in the first place.

Top left is a pair of legs I tried to style after doing a Norakura copy,
Top right is a Loomis head with part of Mustang's outfit from FMA,
Bottom left was me trying to roughly capture the shape of a Taco head + adding hair to it which I've also copied from Paryi

(though hair has not come very naturally to me so I don't remember much from the copies I did of him weeks ago, as I've also gone back to grinding just pure anatomy again)

All memory copies / best-attempt-memory-reproductions I've done here were done more than 24 hours after the original plates were copied.

hey not sure if this is the right thread for this but working on a game and im a bit stumped on how to make the character im drawing match more with the overall aesthetic of the game. Not necessarily the artstyle, but moreso the coloring of the character, and how to make it match the backgrounds, yet also stand out.

First picture shows the pink outline i wanted to try at first. Kinda worked. Second is when i tried to keep the pink, but tried making her all black to see if it would help stand out. Last is when i just tried coloring normally but it doesn't match the game at all.

The game's background art is pixelated and i try to keep the amount of colors to a minimum, i'll reply to this with a few screenshots so you can see what i mean.

The bottom two is what all the art is gonna look like, i just included the actual pieces up top so you can see the color scheme and aesthetic better.

Sometimes I come here to see the work of the new /beg/s and there are some that are worth giving advice because, as someone with experience, you can clearly see the potential, it just needs to be polished. Unfortunately, those /beg/s only post here rarely. And like you said, it's probably only less than 10.

As for the rest, I don't really see the need to give them any more advice because I've done it in the past and yet the progress they've made has been zero. And it hurts to say it, but you're right. Maybe those people should stop drawing and abandon this thread on their own when they realize they're really bad at drawing.

I don't know how to explain it, but even if it's a poorly drawn drawing you can really see the passion that person put into the drawing. But here, apart from just a few /beg/s, I don't see that passion anywhere, it's as if these people only draw for the sake of drawing, without motivation or passion behind them.

Im making it for a class, since the final project was a multi media kinda thing meaning you could do whatever as long as it presented an argument of some sort. my argument is "everything will be alright" and im basically just using the girl character to be the optimistic opposite of the player character who's more nihilistic. pretty much they just go on a walk to a store to find food to feed a stray cat and she talks to you and tries making you realized things aren't all so bad. script still in progress, but im glad you were interested.

Thoughts? Anything I could do to improve? This was a comission I did for a friend of their skyrim character.
You've certainly got promise. I would reccomend looking into getting more of a grasp on how the arm works/bends. It will take some time, but you're clearly putting effort in to be better!
wtf flip him back over :(
