2 MB,
can we talk about shoulder health? i'm drawing 6-9 hours a day atm and ontop of all the other health issues what worries me most is the fact that my right shoulder seems to be a bit achy, tender and unstable.

wat do?

i remember back a year ago when i got tendonitis (not carpal thank god, carpal is bad news, tendonitis is quite manageable as it turned out) and somebody shared a set of exercises for your wrist/hand on here, that seemed to help tremendously. cured my tendonitis without me quitting drawing within about a week.

is there a shoulder equivlanet for that? i have 2 20kg dumbells lying around if that matters.

I work in the slaughter side of an industrial beef plant. Most people there have sore hands. Mine are sore all the time except on long breaks. I also have trigger finger at night and in the morning. It's terrifying, tons of people there get carpal tunnel. Scrap one cow head fine. Scrap 1000+ cow heads for 8 hours and it hurts to masturbate.
My advice: Take breaks and put your hand in the warm knife purifier.

How important is being classically trained if you want to be a digital artist professionally? I want to know how far I should take it because my options here in Ontario for classical training are quite good.

The handful of classically/atelier trained digital artists I'm aware of have been quite good (Daarken is the first one that comes to mind). I think there's something to it and I'm following suit and have just begun attending an Atelier myself.

Being able to draw and paint well in hand would give you tools that set you apart from the average digital artist from what I see but there are other factors like creativity, connections and being good at selling yourself when it comes to landing a job in that profession.

It really depends on what your ambitions are. Since you are asking here perhaps you need to do some reflections on what you are actually burning for as you can't make it far in that industry without the passion. Being in school is no excuse...

The almost constant stream of "I can't dredge up motivation to draw" posts/threads.

If you can't stir up your own structure/motivation then take a class. Honestly if you can't be a self-starter and you can't put together the money to pay someone to give you structure and tell you what to do, professional level art probably isn't for you. There's no magical solution out there. There are resources to give you free learning materials/inspiration/goals, but in the end, it's up to you to use them.

People just flatout ignoring good advise.
Seeing them stagante throught the time is really annoying.

How do you guys price out your work? I'm being inquired about a few original sketches. What questions should I ask myself to come up with a formula on how to charge for my original sketches?

Videos aren't specific to drapery, but rendering. IMO it's a bad habit to try and think "this is how I render drapery" and "this is how I render cars". Light obviously behaves differently with different materials which you should learn but the basics of direct light, highlight, shadow core, cast shadow, and reflected light go a VERY long way and are fundamental to rendering of all objects, regardless of shape or material. Complex forms like drapery...

I'm assuming most of you have asked far too little from commissions (like me) for lack of confidence.

Post finished work and what you charged, or advice for artists aspiring to sell their services.

$15-20, don't be like me.

Hey /ic/

I just started drawing. Every time I draw a few hours goes by in what feels like minutes, I get a HUGE headache after a couple hours and for the rest of the day all I can tink about is rotating objects.

Let's play a little game (:
Make a draw with just one line
A landscape, life drawing, a character or whatever you want, what is fun is to identify what you drew with only one line

It's a good exercice
