How can I draw something with a high-angle shot ?
Pic related, I would like to draw a character watching the "camera" with this kind of angle but more exagerated.

I can't find any model or tutorial for this, so I ask here

Draw a box around the character.

Lot's of repetition in figure drawing and studying how perspective works.

Just lots and lots of study.

How do I go about finding shadows on a form that is cast by itself? For example on a body, shadow cast on the face by a brow, nose, ear, etc.

Huh? You use your eyes, you can see it

>>2516826
Light travels in a straight line so you can project from the light source and calculate cast shadows. It gets a bit complex to actually do it properly when you have organic forms casting onto other organic forms, so just use your brain and intuition to guess how the shadow projects off and it will look good enough. People can't really tell very well if cast shadows are a bit off (same with specular reflections).

If you really want it more accurate then you can always build a quick clay or 3d model and see...

Cast shadows = sharp edges
Form shadows = soft edges w/ core

is it better to have a dayjob when making art? if you do good work, people will eventually come to you. if not, at least you'll be financially independent from a lifetime fulfilling hobby.

it also gives one more room for originality and artistic freedom if people here care for that

I think most artists who do make money with it do have a primary job to support themselves. Not many artists can make enough money SECURELY each month, so it's better to have a backup. If you drown in jobs, then you probably don't have to. There's also art dayjobs in offices though.

You think about it.

-Get a 9-5
-Come home by 6 (if you have to commute)
-Wash up/dinner (1 hour)
It's now 7pm, unless you have other errands (or kids) you now have 5 hours to draw until you have to go back to your slave owner again for another 4 days.

Part-time job sure why not. The problem with your post is

why people keep asking for critique on his "1st time ever" stuff?

the only valid advice you can get at this point is to keep working: do it 10, 100 and 1000 times again, until you get good. you're not supposed to show like 99% of your work to nobody

Hi guys,

I am looking to buy some good books of painters (over amazon) with some strong compositional elements to apply to photography.

Any recommendation?

>>
>>2517217
Is there a reason you want to get a book on artists over photographers?

And I suppose it depends a lot on the type of photography you do as well. I really like the composition of Andrew Wyeth and Edward Hopper and think both of their work would carry over fantastically to photography, but that is just my personal taste.

I would avoid any books specifically on composition though. It's mostly pretty bullshit. Composition is one of those gut-feeling things and it is dangerous to fall trap to conventions...

I also buy / bought books from photographers, but i want to learn from the core. Maybe i have more margin to create things from there to here (photography)
I am interested in portrait, street and social documentary photography.
Hopper is very good, already have a book of him. Gonna look Wyeth stuff. I was also looking some baroque and renaissance stuff.
thx a lot

And yeah, we have the same felling about that shitty composition books.
One PDF is enough for that.

Prismacolor markers have pretty vibrant inks and can last a while.
Blick Studio markers are surprisingly decent. The ink quality isn't as nice but they're good if you want to dip your toes before spending hundreds of bucks on markers.
Both come in brush tips like copics.

Is freedom of speech even real anymore? It's like all modern art is some sort of indoctrination and I just don't want to be a part of 'that'. Is there hope? Like when you look at Matt Stone and Trey Parker they are still sort of real so that gives me hope but that's about it. Is there a reason for me to believe I can create without bearing some sort of uncalled consequence for it? Is the world even still gonna be here when I get good?

Society changes and so do the views of people. That's just how it is. If you go against it, people will react to it accordingly. (Doesn't mean death threats or witch hunts are acceptable though, but there's always children on the internet) Either you can deal with it or you keep your opinions to yourself.

The community is way too large to sustain a community like Sijun or old ConceptArt.org again at this point, sadly.

The pro/amateur ratio is completely off, in fact most pros don't even bother interacting with the community directly at this point because they'll be flooded with hundreds of comments from amateurs that they'll never have time to reply to.

Most artists use social media for these daily / weekly challenges these days. Sketch dailies on twitter and the facebook spitpaint group are probably the most popular with tons of pros participating.

But yeah, it's a shame that there is no more forum with an active community dedicated to this sort of thing. I loved the Ca.org challenges and how motivating it was to see so many people participate, write crits, share their WIPs, then vote for what work they thought was best etc. That's all gone from...

Oh hey another day on /ic/.

Can I become good at art when I start with 12 or is it already too late?

Should I do this certain exercise 231 hours before I move on? Asking because I'm a wimpy faggot that rather collects arbitary information and opinions instead of actually practicing and figuring things out on my own.

I'm going trough this certain book that is written in a style unsuited for me but I force myself trough it because I heard a bunch of opinions on how good that book is even though I don't understand shit.

Acquire professional psychiatric consultation.
You have dedication. You have resolve. You have practice and fortitude. You are far, far ahead of the game. Is your mind in this context, not your objective work history or experience that is/are to be critiqued here.

You are doing well.
Just as in learning physics - first we teach the 11th or 12th grade pupil example after example - before the abstract concepts of Quantum Mechanics later.

Artistically, you are practicing very very diligently. Stop overthinking.
