Why are so many great artist's fucked in the head some kind of way? A lot of the ones I know online either have bipolar disorder or some other mental illness but they draw like gods

I think I have, but I'm sure is mostly because I sleep like 4 hours a day and get kind of depressed because of not working more in my art or because I'm not good enough

If you want to paint like as if you're painting traditionally, see this vid from CtrlPaint
http://www.ctrlpaint.com/videos/paint-flat-01-simplicity

If you want to do anime-styled illustration, then I see no reason to limit yourself to 1 or 2 layers since that might make things more difficult to adjust later.

Hey /ic/ I figured this was the best place to ask, though I'm not sure if you're willing to help. I want to know what the fuck is up with the fibonacci spiral. It's always placed over a painting as if there's something to see, but I never see any pattern, just a painting with a spiral over it.
In short:

Congratulations, you've skipped the step where you actually think it's important.

The fibonacci sequence looks nice in a general way, but not every aesthetically-pleasing thing lines up with it. Half of these are jokes.

good way to think about it. the closer to the center of your spiral. the more detail. its you're image's main focal point. further you go away you can leave some detail out and not render as much

How long did take you faggots to get used to a tablet and then the programs, like Photoshop and Paint Tool Sai (Actually PTS is more easier to get into)?

Buy drawing on the right side of the brain, go to hm and s, and draw those guys and gals until you want to vomit. Rinse and repeat. Inspiration is flakey and not efficient if you want to git good. Concentrate on developing good habits and self discipline instead to ensure you will draw even when you feel lazy.

How can I practice drawing faces?
Do I simply have to use photos of faces? Or should I look for another method?
29 replies and 6 images submitted. Click here to view.

First try to understand the structure of a regular face, like what is it under the skin you see, proportions and stuff
Then looking at pictures is a good idea to avoid the "same face" in every of your drawings

How did you get over this?

I have this idea of how good I want to be. I can judge if something is good or not. So there is this frustration when I want to make something good but simply can't. Not today, not tomorrow, not in a week and not even this year. So when I am practicing I quickly get frustrated and lose focus and patience. I know there is no way around it but still...

I feel like most people got over this by starting out early before they got really self-conscious about their work and finding enjoyment in the process and not caring about the result.

Literally everyone goes through this. You arent a special snowflake. Just keep drawing

But how did they get over it? Drawing isn't as mechanical as for example working out where you can just go through the motions. Practice has to be deliberate.

Stop overthinking everything and draw.

I used to post on DA and was happy: awesome site features, nice community, groups... but then I found out about the rules.

They basically hate explicit stuff.

So now I'm wondering where should I go posting my stuff, I'd prefer something different from Hentai Foundry, it lacks some of the features that makes DA cool.

I don't know all the places and I thought to ask here.
The drawing is mine and that's what I like to do.

deviantArt = western, mostly sfw, shitty rules for nsfw
soup = western, both sfw and nsfw
pixiv = non-western, both sfw and nsfw

critique on your image:
- stop running your art through a sharpen effect, it really hurts the eyes to look at.
if you want super crisp edges, just draw lines without anti-aliasing instead.
- red-head has the generic "DreamWorks" face expression.
- the small dick looks like a nose with a raspberry stuck to the end of it, learn how to draw dicks.

Hay thanks a lot I'll check those out. I never quite liked the roughness of people here, there's no need to be rude or trying to be creative in pointing out what you think it's not ok dishing out random sarcasm.

But fair enough.

How does one be original today ? Is it possible not to be a post-modernist, since I feel like everything has been done and originality+quality is almost impossible.

>le everything has already been done meme

Nothing is original everything is based on something
just remember there's a difference between being inspired by something or copying it
Find something that you like or invokes a feeling of inspiration or excitement (read books ,watch movies and shows,read comics and manga etc.) and originality will just follow
>>
>>2595151
Draw what you are interested in, be inspired by art that resonates with your taste and forget about consciously trying to do shit that's never been done before.

That's how you create honest art with a clear artistic voice, which is your closest shot at ever creating something others will perceive as original.
