I am a professional in the 3d industry and have basic drawing skills but ultimately want to get better, but I feel im in between loomis and all that and basic perspective, but i still struggle with getting to the next level. Can anyone help me and talk w/ me about potential study paths to follow?
My goals are: - the usual concept art paintings like jama jurabev and maciej and so on - fashion and portrait drawings in that similar style but actual line art too. Just solid realism, being able to draw environments and people and faces and all that.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2450477 Oh so I meant 1-3 min gestures, like those sites / in figure drawing classes where the poses would change really quickly. I draw messy and heavy so even when it goes to the 10 min poses my results don't really get better since its already plagued by the heavy messy under drawing
I've been working on removing that by being more deliberate, which is why I'm leaning towards going back into some books and doing front to back studies but this time much cleaner.... But that doesn't solve the subject... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm not baiting, it's true. Why is this? I spent a while in Japan and the average person on the street could probably draw a better human figure than the marity of people on /ic/, I'm not even kidding, there is that much of a skill gap. What makes them so great?
>>2438882 >I spent a while in Japan and the average person on the street could probably draw a better human figure... And were supposed to believe you? You were in Japan, for a while. So 1-4 years? Even more? And yet it never occured to you to simply ask them?
I know your statements are wrong, but atleast try to follow an inner logic when you make them. Right now not only are they factually wrong, but they also violate the logic of your story itself.
Could be their language and handwriting. All japanese have a ton of pencil mileage from having to learn all those individual characters. I think people on average were better at drawing in the west too back when handwriting was more emphasized in school.
It all depends on your living situation. If you have years ahead of you where you can dedicate yourself to constant effort in practice, you will eventually make a living off of it, but don't make any poor bets. You're not very young, so you have to decide whether or not you want to struggle with something relatively few people ultimately become successful at, or just choose a safer career and try to live comfortably. You can always study art as a hobby in your spare time, and maybe someday down the road change your career to art.

Does anyone find digital painting lazy nowadays? I watch youtube videos of people digitally painting and how many "tricks" these supposed "professionals" get away with.
They actually still used burn for shading and dodge for highlighting. It also seemed they spent a lot of time playing around with various effects instead of actual painting. Especially various filters, like lens flare (really!) Playing around with filter opacity can only get you so far if your coloring and painting technique are weak.
I understand that in visual art, a lot of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>They actually still used burn for shading and dodge for highlighting When you blend colors digitally it tends to kill saturation (since it's calculating a numeric value, not having two pigments interact). This is why digital paintings have a tendency to have all kinds of issues with saturation that a traditional painter doesn't have to think about as much. I find blending and layer modes extremely helpful in this regard.
it's because this shit takes zero skill whatsoever. and that's why 'getting good' or 'muh portfolio' is total bs. you've noticed yourself that the amount of crutches these professionals seem to build their work on is through the fucking roof, and that's why this 'skill' is completely void of any inherent value.
Just like Rahid and Kumar started taking every webdesigners jobs back in the early 2000's, the average first-world 16 year old that torrented... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Would anyone here recommend art clubs or social groups if you're a total novice looking to get into drawing? I fail to get into a lot of things, especially considering I get about 10 minutes of social interaction a week or so. Being lonely is a huge demotivator.

Does anyone else here hate drawing people you know personally, like a friend, family member or partner?
It's not that I'm not confident enough to do it just I'm worried it will insult it in some way. Or the opposite, even if it does turn out fine, in the case of family, they gush over it and make it a big thing among relatives which brings awkward attention.
I remember when I was maybe 11, my sister just had a baby at the time. So while the baby was asleep in her crib I tried drawing her. I personally didn't think it was great but of course my sister and my mom thought it was amazing and wouldn't stop raving and gushing over it among the rest of the family exclaming "OMG LOOK ANON DREW THE BABY ISNT IT AMAZING" and it just made me feel awkward and uncomfortable.
But even today, my boyfriend keeps asking me to draw his face on the Hulk's body for no random reason other that he thinks it's funny. I don't want to do it because I feel weird about the idea of drawing my boyfriend's face on the body of the Hulk. It's a mix of not wanting to draw because I wont get the right expression right. Drawing it alone will take time due to the amount of reference I need to draw everything right, and overall I just don't want ro draw it because it's just fucking weird and I don't need or want anyone else to see it. The idea of drawing it makes me feel embarrassed.
An I wrong? Does anyone else here hate drawing people they know personally, especially for a weird request?
I don't like it either. It's easier to feel like it doesn't look right when it's a face you're really familiar with, and I'm in the same boat as you about the attention thing. I drew a picture of our family dog for my mother and she framed it and shows people. I'm flattered, but it's also not a very good drawing so it's a bit embarrassing.
>It's not that I'm not confident enough to do it just I'm worried it will insult it in some way. Or the opposite, even if it does turn out fine, in the case of family, they gush over it and make it a big thing among relatives which brings awkward attention. This is exactly how I feel.
>>2450075 This is why I have some cute, generic style to fall back on when someone insists I draw them. If it's generic enough it'll look cute and they'll think i's flattering. Everyone's always been overjoyed using this.
