Here's a colleague of some of my former tutors, and probably the most well-known artist I've talked to in real life. After just starting lurking this board a few weeks ago, I'm guessing of all the artists who's names I've memorised, through my 14 years as a painter, Jonathan Wateridge might be the one closest to the general taste of /ic/.
What baffles me about this board, is the fact that literally none of the names that has been brought up, are known in the 'real' art world. Complementary to this, there seem to be a consensus that art school and contemporary art is worthless to you lot. Does /ic/ even research the diverse plethora of 21st century art?
Watch the video, tell me what you think, and name some other artists that one likely could come across in the stables of internationally acclaimed galleries.
All income is taxable, just list it as "Other income" when you file your taxes next year. Look up your local taxes. If you live in NYC for instance, you'll have to pay both state and city sales tax. However if it's all in cash and your art sales aren't a regular thing, you might consider it an under the table sort of thing.
There are loads of invoice templates online, just use google.
Since this is a sizeable amount of money, you may want to consider having them put down a deposit and sign a contract that basically says if you don't fulfill your end, the deposit is refunded, if he tries to back out before you finish you keep the deposit, and if you complete the work, he is legally obliged to pay you. There are some freelancer contract templates out there too, just do your research.

This thread is meant for artists who might want to try to make anime works in-between their studies. It is strongly recommended that you use this thread in conjunction with learning the elements and fundamentals of art. You can also discuss the visual elements of various professional artists as well if you keep it relatively articulate and civil.

Hey guys, any of you has had experience in the game/animation/movie industry as an artist? Or even as a freelance artist? I still have 2-3 years until I finish high school, but I'm very concerned about what it takes to have a future career in those fields. -Could you name 10 pros and cons on working in those industries? -What qualifications are suited for them? - How do you see the industry in 10 years?how about 20 years?
Thanks so much in advance, and I am aware that this post might be more suited to the advice board that this board, but i really hope... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Go to maps.google.com right now, search the term "atelier" and see if there's one near you and consider taking a few basic classes. It's about what you can do moreso than where you went to school, and to that end there's no sense in not getting the jump on your formal education; with the right teacher you could get good enough to get a substantial markdown on tuition if you do end up deciding to go to a college.
>>2460024 Also, pretty much everything >>2460023 said is topical and true, because you're so young though I just figured I'd try and butt in to send you in the right direction if you're really ambitious to work in an art related field.
>>2457550 >Is a brush pen usable for daily writing? No.
Try Ames' Guide to Self-Instruction or Rosemary Sassoon's Improve Your Handwriting. Do the exercises and practice the letter forms until you're comfortable with your consistency, but more importantly just write a lot and be conscious of /how/ you're writing. Aim for consistency, mind your mistakes and take the time to correct them; if you notice you're getting a certain letter different all the time go back and practice it. If you don't have anything to write just take more notes as you study / read books / etc. Write down important passages or song lyrics or whatever the fuck you're into, copy those over a few times, buy a new pen to encourage yourself to write more often, etc.
I understand it's takes a lot of time to produce even a few minutes of animation, but most of those animators have very little skill in terms of draftsmanship, illustration, and concept. Where the artistic integrity.
I can only hope Allah will bless us with better animators and smite these dumpster bin shitters in the future.
Why is Proko recommended again? Looking past his cringey humor, he literally shows you how to draw something in one video and then in his step by step video he does a completely different process. Is there a channel which better goes through each part of the face?
Using his face videos as an example, the ones I think you're mistaking for 'showing you how to draw something' is essentially a study of the thing (the 'anatomy and structure' videos). They're exercises to understand the anatomy and forms of the feature.
His step-by-steps then demonstrate his own method. The knowledge of the anatomy is the same, the steps are different.
If you're watching these videos just copying his exact steps you're doing it wrong and you're not going to learn to draw the features from other angles.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Unless you go to school for it, art is very much a self-starter sort of thing. If you can't push through it or develop strategies to keep you moving, you might be better off pursuing a career where other people push for you.
Mix it up brah, try a new medium, make your own sketchbooks with cool paper, change your setting. I work a non art 9-5 and most days for lunch go out and sketch buildings or people in the food court. I got into a slump of just drawing from life in my house or life drawing session, and drawing en plain air was a major inspiring change that is so much more fun than I could have ever guessed, once I got over the anxiety of doing art in public of course.
The "artist" who shat out pic related has crawled all up his own asshole and is pretending to be an art teacher and makes all kinds of shitty tutorials. And people eat all his shit up like it's fondue or something.
I used to write because I was really good at it. Then I realized the only reason I wrote was because I couldn't draw (yet I still wanted to express ideas I had in my head), it hit me that all this time I spent working on my writing I could have spent learning how to draw. I have a lot of lost time and I wish I bit the bullet and started learning art earlier.
Ever since I started I haven't looked back. To each his own, but damn does drawing feel a hell of a lot more rewarding than writing.
>>2459186 Holy shit this, so much this. I've just started getting to grips with anatomy and going to practice scenery and architecture next, it's so liberating seeing the characters and bullshit worlds you've created in word come to life on paper man
