Should I learn from the sticky or from drawabox as a complete beginner?

avoid both and start a iterative drawing regimen

Doesnt really matter. Drawabox should be put in the sticky if it's not already there anyway.

Is he saying that it's hard to draw bad on purpose once you draw good?

no, his saying it's hard to have that absolute no give a shit creative based on absolutely nothing but the mind artistic freedom a child has. Kids don't care about how shitty their life is how what art critics think. They just shit out whatever is in their brain without a care in the world.

but no anon, be an absolute fucking retard and take picasso as literal as you can.

"When I was a child, I spoke as achild, I understood as a child, I thought as achild; but when I became a man, I put away childish things."

There's a time when you become an adult and forget what is like to be a child.

probably a misqotation. this is a real one:

>Attributed to Pablo Ruiz Picasso in "The Hand of a Stranger (Journal D'un Inconnu)." Cocteau, Jean. Horizon Press. 1959

Right now on /ic/ there is a popular acceptance of this idea that learning to draw well is brutally hard. That there are no real shortcuts. That you must practice for hours a day for years and it will be a miserable grind. I have seen many threads where people looking for "better" advice have been met with ridicule. This is because to some people it looked like they wanted a magic spoonfed answer to get them good that didn't exist.

Yeah, OP.

I know that most of the advice here is actually like going to /fit/. But that is because it's been proven by amateurs and pros as well that learning to draw is a matter of boring repetitive exercises, as well as getting ripped.

I see grinding the fundamentals as working out. You do not need "motivation" to actually grab a piece of paper and draw. You need the motivation to not get discouraged because it is painful.

How do I go back drawing again

Basically I've rerun the basic beginner books so many times I'm sick of it and don't want to do anything associated with them. But I feel like seppukuing if I completely let go of my hobby- and also I want to be good.

What the fuck all I wanted to do was to masturbate to my own drawings, why is art making my life even more depressing.

I get a lot of inspiration from runway shows, specially for stuff like techwear which is what the gaming industry's all about.

if character design was cooking, there's only few ingridients to use, theory is way simpler than actually cooking
everything is about contrasts and communication

there's sizes/proportions of the parts, with themselves and with other characters, for example mario, luigi, wario and waluigi are the same thing with different proportions (also color and minor details)
there's shape languaje, with itself and wth other characters, you can compare the shapes of Monsters S.A. MC with the evil one

As a child I was extremely fascinated with Yu-Gi-Oh card art (example attached), and it became my main focus when I've bought a cintiq and actually started doing digital art.
It has been a year now, and my biggest struggle is to find an audience. Naturally, what I do won't and shouldn't appeal to just anyone (Yu-Gi-Oh card art), so I can't just advertise myself randomly.
What can I do to gather an audience?

Do you do art because you enjoy it or because you want an audience? If it's the latter you'll probably end up disappointed. No one can choose to have an audience, the audience chooses who they follow, and there's no magic bullet to get one. Who would have predicted Undertale would get the fanbase it did?

If you can help it leave ego at the door and make things you enjoy, hopefully an audience will develop on its own from the passion you put in your work.

Some people say art is really just communication and expressing thoughts and ideas, do you actually...

Dunno why the other guy got rid of his thoughts, they werent bad.

I cant say that deleting my games would help me though. The main issue with me is that I am a beginner and I dont quite know what to do. It may sound stupid, but it overwhelms me and I feel like I dont know where to start at all.

I've been thinking of commissioning an art piece but have no real idea how to go about finding a fitting artist or the whole process of it really so I figure I may as well ask here

The idea I've had is having someone draw an animation loop in the style (and quality) of the gif I've posted with another character I rep myself with

Be a very cool piece to showcase on my steam and etc profiles and stuff

Since it's animation with pretty fancy shading and shadowing (dat oldschool anime where'd you go), I figure it might be pretty costly...

That's a cool idea, dude. Let's see. It's 15 frames, mercifully with most of the actual motion being limited to the hair and clothes it should be doable "relatively" inexpensively, but the lighting is pretty complex, even with a reference it would be take quite some time to emulate. I think somewhere around the $200 mark might be expected, if not a bit more. Hopefully someone else chimes in because that's as close a guess as I'm capable of.

Spider Jerusalem, of Transmetropolitan

Someone else might be a fan too idk

Been using his faces from the first issues of it as avatars for long ages, mostly because the resemblance is uncanny I swear

Anyway the potential for a wicked cool fusion should be immediately visible, and if I got an estimate of $200 from someone doing this kinda art - might even begin getting myself warmed up to the idea of blowing that much...

>They'll probably charge extra for beard physics

I know you're kind of joking but that would doubtlessly increase the hypothetical price by quite a bit, dude. Most of the actual animation in the real .gif apart from the lighting (which is nonetheless very complex by itself) is "just off screen". Add a beard into the mix and shit gets real wacky, real quick. They will no longer be able to use the .gif as much of a reference and will have to estimate similar lighting...

This thread is meant for artists who might want to try to make anime work 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.

28 KB,
I have decided to take advice I have received from /ic/ and I am making more strides with my grasp on 3D spaces. I decided to look up some various images of women and human form. I took all of my entire Sunday to dedicate to studying and practicing. I took some elements from a class where I had to draw simple building blueprints and put them into work on Evie. I feel like I can get a better grasp on my perspective as I reintroduce some concepts I got from a building class.

This is true to some extent. KC my negro you gotta give it time. Rome wasn't built in a day, and you're not going to be able to draw the perfect Evie without months or even years of study.
