How many of you are planning to spend your entire life drawing?
Are you putting all of your chips in art?
Has anyone in /ic/ managed to buy a house or a car while making money as an artist?

I'm genuinely curious to what prospects one will get by dedicating their life as an illustrator.

YOU GOT NOTHING

Kids in /ic/, always remember to take art as no more than a hobby and not something you would dedicate your life onto. Not a single soul in /ic/ makes more than minimum wage doing commissions. You've been warned

Hopeful drawfag who think theyre going somewhere always end up in suicide. That's why you don't see some of them anymore.

Hey guys, this is a wip but I'm saying the background is done and is at a professional entry level. Before I move onto the main guy which is just a silhouette right now, do you guys think the background is finished and at a good level of polish too?

Background looks only marginally more polished than a basic block-in. I wouldn't call that finished yet.

>Before I move onto the main guy which is just a silhouette right now
This is my biggest issue right now. Did you do value and color thumbnails to figure out how the figure will work against the background before you went and painted all that background? Do you know if your composition will work, your values and colors will work, and that everything important reads well?

I didn't do thumbnails, only a rough sketch. But I was going for a splash screen. Sort of like those promotional posters for online games. I want this in my portfolio so it needs to be as professional as I can make it. I don't like these kinds of things much either but if it works then I will do it. I will work on it some more then and see.

If you were to start a webcomic, would you upload weekly/bi-weekly, or would you upload batches of pages all at once? I feel like the former gives you more exposure, but the latter makes for a better reading experience, and I was wondering /ic/'s thoughts!

Also, does /ic/ recommend any comics? Picture, uh, unrelated, haha.

There's a comic thread already. Also, most webcomic creators upload one page at a time. Some do it once a week, some bi-weekly and there's one who uploads a page a day from Monday to Friday (with pretty good art as well0
Which one are you most comfortable with? If it were up to me I'd upload a bunch of pages or a chapter at a time rather than page by page.

You definitely want to have a regular upload schedule, doesn't matter if it's once a week or bi-weekly or even 3 times a week, just have a schedule and stick with it. You want your audience to form a habit to come back to your webcomic every week whenever it updates. That's how you get people invested and best case scenario, they start talking about your webcomic, discussing what's going to happen next week etc.

Uploading webcomics chapter by chapter is usually a bad idea, because most people...

Hey /ic/

I've been trying to be more aware of my drawing habits recently and I noticed a distinct modal shift, probably due to fatigue, where I just start mindlessly drawing heads or cubes or whatever. I've been noticing it more and more since I started taking ibuspirone for my anxiety but I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

Have any of you experienced anything similar? What is the solution?

Doodling is without purpose, it's just supposed to be fun. If you want to prevent drawing without purpose you need to give it purpose, just think of a concept, mood, ANYTHING before you draw.

And stop making your own threads.

Anyone experimented with deepart.io?
I think it's a glimpse of what we can expect from computere algorithms in the future. While the results of my submission wasn't perfect, I'm still pretty impressed with it.
It's free to submit a picture but it takes several hours before it's ready. And also you only see it in low resolution as in pic related. You'll have to pay 39 euro for a 1300x1300 version which is pretty fucking ridiculous. But please try it out. Most people seem to use the site for stupid selfies. I think /ic/ can be more creative than that.

No, I just want to see what other artists could come up with as opposed to the people who just want a new facebook picture. I have another image in the queue but it takes forever.

I hear the algorithm is pretty weak atm, with too broad of generalizations with key concepts like overall shapes and mouths, etc.

It'll probably be pretty cool in a few years though.

Anyone else have a tendency to boycott themselves?

I've simply postponed replying to new client inquiries for so long it got awkward to even reply at all. Why? Because their project seemed out of my comfort zone or they were asking things I wasn't familiar with. Basically treating me like I'm way more experienced than I am, and kind of intimidating me a bit with that. Part of me probably was also just afraid of making a fool of myself, even though that's a necessary step on the journey.

Have you heard people say that you only see other artists' best work? It's like that. I've noticed that people rate my skill much higher than I would, and I think it's because they don't see all of the failures or shitty midway points in the paintings or how I need to study because there are things I'm not good enough at. They just see the polished finished pieces that I deemed worthy of making public. So the people commissioning you don't see you stretching your comfort zone, they...

How does it work for Japanese artists only making illustrations like Houtengeki?

The guy always does ton of drawings of characters that seems to be his OCs, and pretty high quality at that, which kind of cancel the commission possibility for most of them. I'm pretty sure he doesn't have something like a Patreon. I sometimes saw on boorus scans of drawing of his I never saw on his art sites, which this time does seems to be commissioned works, but is that really all he does to get money?
