Honestly I feel that this topic is not talked about enough here. It's all good and well to focus on gitting gud but I would like to delve into how a digital artist can truly become successful.

1.) How successful can a digital artist really be? We know there's some infamous outliers like the lady on Patreon, but can the profession offer the lucky few 100k+? 200k+? 300k+?

2.) How would you go about attaining that kind of success? What's the most viable blueprint to at least try?

3.) Where is most of the money? Freelance fantasy? Studio fantasy?...

You seem to be treating digital art as if it's not very obviously much bigger and more lucrative (in a general sense) than all other mediums. This makes it seem like you've either been living under a rock for the last two decades (and should just do some googling to get you acquainted with the modern world), or you're otherwise not intelligent enough to warrant giving answers to.

Here are some things for you to google:

"digital art" is not a profession, it's simply the medium that most clients require you to work in.

You've got to understand that digital art will always be shit on by traditional artists because of the lineage and culture that comes with it.

Reducing all of your artistic tools to a computer and a tablet is pretty weak and even if what you do looks good, you'll still be seen as some nerdy art fuck rathet than a true artist that has a gallery (not a fucking deviant art).

But now digital art is what's the hot shit in the business. It's easier and faster so it's better for the industry.


But deep within if you truly want to be an Artist of the soul and not of the paycheck, you're not gonna make it with just digital art.
I know I'm gonna get shit on because you guys are heavily digital oriented but this is what I've seen as someone who's spent two years in French Art Schools.

I want to learn how to sketch cleanly but loosely. Like the guy in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIaTjqTbK2U

I studied product design and while my presentation drawings and renderings end up looking nice and clean, I am ashamed of my exploration sketches because I have poor line control and they end up looking like doodles instead of professional work. I want to enter a very competitive field and everything should look as good as it could, so...

>How can I practise ideation/thumbnail sketching for product design so I can make tens of iterations that look clean and presentable? Any online resources or books that you recommend?

With that kind of insightful and amazing advice that you are providing for free, why aren't you teaching at Art Center, RISD or Parsons? Seriously, I would have paid for someone to tell me that a few years ago.

Making cleaner drawings and correcting the problem of "poor line control... looking like doodles" is a matter of drawing more.

When I was younger I used to draw all day everyday. It was all I wanted to do and all that made me happy. But recently I've lost my passion for art. I never feel like drawing and I literally have to sit down and fucking force myself to do it. And when I do I get frustrated/bored after like an hour or so. I haven't made a complete work since God knows when. Should I just give up on art?

Anyone ever use Spectrum Noir markers? How do they stack up to Copics or Prismacolors?

You can get a six pack of these for 7.94 at Joann Fabrics (but with a 50% off coupon that seems to be in the ad literally every week), so 1.32 a piece which seems like a good deal.

Worst case scenario is they aren't as good as copics. If you feel its worth a shot, go for it.

Never tried your brand OP, but don't they have those samples on display?

Usually what would make the difference for me is the brushpen which seems to not be equally as interesting on those you mentioned.

The closest thing to a Copic I've come across for cheaper is the Touch by Shin Han art which has a similar brush pen but still, ink quality is not as spectacular as Copic. For experiments/practice however, they're perfect, and about a third of the price.

How come people who finally git gud don't do anything worth while with their skill (imo atleast)? I look at online artists like sinix or people like feng and, while they're skilled, they don't really do anything, they don't really produce any content or tell stories or make people feel emotions. They don't create stuff aside from samey landscapes or cute girls. They've obviously worked hard to git gud but it seems to me like a lot of people just git gud to git gud and don't really want to do anything with the skill they've worked so hard...

Sooo... a friend of mine showed my work to someone he met at a convention who is trying to pitch a cartoon show to a big cartoon channel like CN or Nick.

The guy contacted me saying he liked my work and asked if I'd be interested in doing the storyboarding.

He said if I'm interested we can setup a Skype call to fill in the details.

I'm interested but I'm not sure how to respond or what the proper etiquette is to do here because I'm a socially awkward potato.

Thanks for the video, however I already know I would never draw for free. The question is not asking whether or not I should get paid, the question is more about the timing. Do I ask what their budget is right off the bat? Should I wait until we do a Skype call?

And if he does intend to pay me, do I made a contract/agreement? If I make a contract, should it be in written form or is verbal agreement enough?

If I make a contract, what details should it entail??

absolutely, i would also suggest simply laying in the general shape and then focus all remaining effort on various erogenous zones before asking them their opinion
