your very being craves failure. To return to your mother's womb. Enter the void. Embrace futility, and burn in agony as your hurdle through space shedding tears like ice crystals behind a comet heading for the sun.
>>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).

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.

>>2515570 sounds like you've already convinced yourself of the answer. personally, I think it's much more difficult for a part-time artists to succeed at art. Art, as well as real success at most anything, demands sacrifice.
>>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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2517220 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
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.
personally i want to become great at art to inspire other people and have people recognise me to be good at something. i'm not aiming for an art job, but it's important to me that my art will be at least good enough to make some kind of living off (mostly just for validation)
my life has been falling apart for so long now that motivation for anything of any kind is like a rare resource. i was fired yesterday and now i'm a NEET again with nothing but time. i stop any creative endevour the second it starts to feel like work. i'm losing interest in everything and now all of what occupies my time i am forcing myself to enjoy. even a competent initial level of performance can't get me to see anything to completion.
i have barely started or half finished drawings, piano pieces, programs, models, and media everywhere. i'm slowly... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Has there ever been a time where you or a classmate had a moment where you either went ape shit in class, walk out of class, or yelled at a teacher/classmate for no reason?

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?
>>2516881 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.

Where the fuck do you go to have a comfy motivating art challenges and meaningful discussions with other artists?
>>2516634 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.
Your best option is to fragment into a smaller cell, find some friends to start a private Skype group, Google Hangout, etc with - ideally... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2516634 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...

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.
I created a schedule.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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.
