What are the benefits of life drawing, as in, sitting in a class room drawing naked people? What do I gain from this exercise I don't gain from just photographs? Also, with all the Loomis memeing you guys do, I was wondering how human body drawing techniques such as the Loomis method could be applied to life drawing. I've attempted to use the Loomis method while doing life drawing before, and the result was always worse than simply drawing the body in front of me. I've always felt like stuff like the Loomis method was good for memory, but if you don't need... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2510670 Drawing from life you convert a 3d object (binocular vision, and you can walk around it too) to a 2d representation. Drawing from a photo you take a 2d representation and turn it into another 2d representation. There's a whole different level of understanding you will get from life. Not to mention that photos distort reality in many ways differently than your eye sees, from lens distortion to exposure ranges to colour intensity and variety.
Any method of construction is meant as a tool to help break down... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
On top of what other have already said, life drawing is a great way for me to to work really hard for a few hours. At home I have a lot of distractions, but during my life drawing sessions I am completely focused on my drawing and get a shit load done in a mere 3 hours. It's great.
Well, for starters, Hentai-foundry is probably the best place to post first. They only take what they deem "quality content". If they deny you then you know you're still shit and need to practice. Once you post a few good things, they will greenlist you allowing you to post freely without the go ahead from the mods. The positive of HF is that there isn't a ton of traffic, and the new stuff is posted right on the front page so everyone sees it. If you're good, you'll get followers in no time.

Because we should not have to make new threads or post in draw threads with our fundamental exercises. Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make your mom proud.
AVOID asking unrelated questions, There is a question thread for that.

How hard is it to get into the animation industry (Storyboarding, character design, layouts, etc) if you don't have any connections? I feel like those application websites where you dump your resume and portfolio link don't do shit for you.
Keeping in mind that all these people who say "get connections" seem to forget that people who are working in the industry are bombarded all day long by morons looking to use them. Unless you have something to offer them back or to distinguish yourself from the throngs of cock munchers who msg them (a.k.a. some sort of artistic skill) you're not going to get far.

>>2504712 Who is this character? What is his personality and role? What are you trying to show with your design? What society is he a part of?
It's hard to crit a design without context. Thinking more on who your character actually is will help too with your design choices.
Just looking at it out of context I will say it feels a bit generic at the moment. The shapes are all similar sizes and the silhouette have lots of little jutting things. How can you simplify things? How can you bring more variety in? How... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2510644 There's a sticky at the top of /ic/, it contains links that cover the basics and more for beginners. Read them, because it contains much better feedback for you than any anon will bother to give at this stage.
Once you're aware of stuff in the sticky you can come back here and ask for feedback, but right now the drawing you posted is plagued with the same mistakes ten million other people have made and nobody will bother to critique it for this reason.

Have any other fellow d/ic/ks dealt with cubital tunnel syndrome before? I was diagnosed with it and haven't been able to draw for several months due to the pain.
If you don't know what it is, it's similar to carpal tunnel in the sense that it's pain in your wrist/hand, though primarily on the pinky side and in the 4th/5th fingers. Basically a nerve is compressed at the elbow and causing pain in the hand.
I'm considering surgery since it's gone on so long, but I wanted to know if anyone else was able to heal without it.
>>2509740 What does your friend like? What type of apartment/house do they live in (what style decor do they have already)? You probably can pick it out better than we can for your friend. Personally I would choose the one on the left because it is a bit more interesting to me and less like hotel lobby art. But that's my own personal taste. Also if you are on a tight budget, maybe don't buy art? I don't know the price on these, but typically paintings are not worth buying if you have no money.
>>2509747 About 35 bucks each. I was surprised to find them this cheap. They are both 56x38 cm. He lives in a dorm. Enough said, I think. I'm actually leaning towards the left one too. I think it's fashionable.
Right now, Im studying Digital Art at LSU, and while the programs getting better, were learning nothing about the 2D Animation Pipeline. I was having a crisis last semester looking at CalArts and SCAD curriculums and was going to consider transferring but the prices are too entirely fucking high. Because scholarships/financial aid, school is buku cheap in state, but I know that im missing out on so much. The program here is generally focused around 3D with a SHIT ton of filler classes (print photography, 3 printmaking... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I am not a professional artist and I don't work in the industry so i am about to talk out my ass.
Scad and other over priced art schools are a huge waste of money. With that being said I still think having a mentor is essential to getting better. I would find a local mentor and learn from them. It shouldn't be too hard to find some one better than you if you arnt in the middle of no where or already amazing.
I need your advice /ic/ pic unrelated I have to get into collage so I can get my parents off my back, but the problem is the only viable art school here is extremely limited, they accept 10 students a year and are notorious for taking bribes to accept students, basically for rich parents to dump their good for nothing kids who won't/don't need to amount to anything in life. So my other option is fashion design. After 2-3 years I can finish the rest of my schooling in any other art/design related collage. I'd finish that up while grinding my own art in...

>>2508602 What is your ideal goal for your art? What does your stuff look like now? How self-motivated are you? What school are you talking about? How good are you at negotiating with your parents? How much of an issue is money?
It's hard to give advice without knowing the full picture here.
Get a job. College gets you nowhere. If you want n art job, you need to just draw what you want to sell until you're good at it. If you can't study on your own you're another lost cause. go to the military, then get a job as a public servant.
>>2508610 Concept art. Decent, not professional lvl I still have a lot of work. Decently, been drawing 6h a day for almost a year now. School of textile and fashion design. It won't end too well if I don't go to a collage (they believe you can never get a decent job without a diploma). Money is a big issue, we are pretty poor (but schooling in my country is basically free). Sry for not providing more info
What makes a western artist who draws anime shit less credible?
Let's say hypothetically he draws decent anime style drawings, ones which feature proper perspective, anatomy, etc that characters look "human".
Is he seen as more childish than the person drawing Steven Universe fan art merely because he is emulating an eastern style?
Wouldnt the former gain more respect on a technical level? Anime can look a lot more like actual people than tumblr noodle arms and western ''cartoony'' sloppiness, on a merely technical level... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2505477 It's not an issue if you learn proper fundamentals. I used to get told constantly not to draw anime and that I never learn. I relented and took life drawing and other drawing classes. Now I go back and forth between anime and more western styled things all the time and nobody ever gives me flack about it. In fact a lot of times it seems like people really prefer my anime influenced drawings. Not sure how I feel about that. tldr git gud and people won't say shit
>>2505477 >but I dont understand why anime can be seen as a "lesser" style to western cartoons
No one sees it like that other than maybe a handful of weirdos on /ic/ who are unhealthily obsessed with hating anime, probably because they were really into anime when they were younger and are embarassed of their cringy weeb past. That and tumblr landwhales who are obsessed with drawing pretty girls as ugly as possible.
