Trace until it becomes natural.

This is the best advice for copying a style wether you're an amateur who doesn't know shit or you're Loomis himself. Having a solid grasp of anatomy is not enough, you need to understand the artist's design process and adapt your hand to his construction method. Fastest way to do this? Trace.

To begin a legit studio career, I need a degree for a work visa. Sitting in my chair earlier today, and witnessing yet another fight between my parents, and I'm just sick of it. Don't know if I can stand several more years of that while I work on the degree.

Should I just go for a comfy freelance career? I think I'm just going to learn some programming and get a job that can support me living in an apartment, and then work on my art to git gud for freelance work.

Working for Wizards of the Coast, Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Applibot etc. Sounds really...

protip your almost certainly not going to work for these guys starting out, you'll most likely start at 100$ jobs for 16 hours + illustrations .

Is art school necessary for getting a career in art, such as working under a big name studio for example?
Do you feel like you've gained a lot from art school, or are you just there for the degree?
Can't you just learn things taught in art school from online, books, and experience?

Everyone's going to be really quick to shit on art schools for x y and z reasons and they're all probably right to some degree. I'm a freshman in university RN and can confirm all of the ugly rumors are true etc etc

Here's the problem though: all art school can do is provide you with opportunities to sit down and work. The sitting down and the working is entirely of your own volition though. You see so many entitled shits leave school with no talent because they didn't work for it. Regardless of whether you're at a SUNY school or FZD all...

I don't know this particular painting well but this is a type of Christian art called 'Stabat Mater'. The one on the lest wearing a blue mentle is usually Mary (Jesus' mom) and the one on the right wearing red must be John the Apostle (one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus who is a MAN).

How delusional are you? Thats a terrible painting and if he got that far after 8+ years he's either mentally challenged or he paints once a year, both of which explains why he's unsuccessful.
You're worse than people who believe in talent.

it's hard to judge an artist based on one painting, I think this one is very nice, except for that yellow on top of the waves, it really really bothers me.

Do any zoos have any programs where they sedate the animals so artists can draw them? My dad said they used to do this in London in the 70s but I called up my zoo in Cincinatti today and they seemed horrified at the idea.

When you find yourself in an art block, what exactly is happening?

Art block is a prolonged period in which the artist does not experience "flow" or the overcoming of a challenge within their expertise.

If a goal is set too high above our skill level, we frustrate and give up because it is too hard.
If a goal is set too low, or basically within our comfort zone, we become bored and cognizant that "I've done this shit a million times before."

Flow happens when we push ourselves just precisely outside of our comfort zone. Time...
