So, I need advice. In the beginning December I was commissioned for an adult piece. I asked the client to pay the $120 up front in full and he did. Since then I'm honestly been pretty sick and haven't gotten a chance to sketch anything for him. This morning he sent me an e-mail saying if the image wasn't done 100% by Thursday he was going to report me to PayPal.
Should I be worried? I mean, since it's adult art something that is illegal on PayPal he can't even report me can he?
What do I do once I can draw accurately from life?
I've been deconstructing objects and I've gotten better at it, but I'm not perfect at it.
I believe that with 2-3 more months of this I'll have a decent amount of control over what I see and what I draw on paper from life.
What I want to know is this. Once I'm at the point where I'm good at deconstructing objects, can I start deconstructing more complex objects like human faces, muscles, etc?
Or would that still be too soon?
Where do I go once I don't draw symbols...

Do you guys like my dino head I made out of rusty nails and superglue?
Considering I'd have to radically puncture myself to contract it I'm not all that worried. I've put 50+ hours of work into this so far and I haven't injured myself yet.
Seeing as "symbol drawing" is seemingly the default response to anyone who isn't good. How the hell do you "not" symbol draw? It's easy to say "just learn how to draw in 3D/perspective, draw what is actually there/what you see.
Problem is, If you're drawing what you see, and it's still looking like a symbol, what the fuck are you doing wrong/how do you fix it?
There's such a vagueness with criticism on this board that this board needs a massive overhaul.
Oh look, this faggot again. If your drawing looks like a symbol you are symbol drawing. That's the very definition of symbol drawing. It's not vague in the slightest. You fix it by training your eyes, preferably by drawing from life. A lot.
How do people do that thing where they pick a certain object to fill it with a single color?
The software I'm using is Sai btw

Hopefully it inspire someone
Do I really need to learn Loomis before I can draw from my imagination or create characters? I really am not that good at creating but I'm sort of ok at being a copymachine. That's not enough is it. Pic not related.
You have a lot of options besides Loomis, we just only said it always because is the most classic and easy to find in the internet.
You can try George Bridgman, the Draw with the Right Side by Betty Edwards if you are a full noob, Michael Hampton, etc.
And yes if you want to draw form imagination you have the learn that way, but what you get is to be a copy machine as you mention, in fact it is neither good or bad, but it has its disadvantages, such as when you want to do something you're bound to have a reference, which means eventually you'll lose time...

Anyone know where i can download Adobe After Effects?
you guys might be able to help me here. I've been looking for a video I saw here a while back, it was an asian artist doing a huge live drawing with men with guns, rubble, a dog I think. But the important part is about his method of drawing: He views everything he draws in a 3 dimensional box before he puts the pen down.
It's impossible to totally hate kitsch art, because it appeals to the inner child in us, but unfortunately nothing else.
If you hate yourself and kitsch for no reason, then you will most likely tread into a realm of edginess that will almost certainly guarantee you a seat at any outcast's middle school lunch table.
is the solution? Disneyfied-Kitsch sells, while edginess preserves "keeping it real" as an artist. Surely I just do half and half?"
>"No, because then you will just end up with pic related."
"But pic related appeals to me! I love the accessibility but skill the artwork displays!"
>Then continue in your mediocrity, I respect your drive. Let me then speak to the other half of the room.
>For those who do not wish for pic related to be their magnum opus, let me, So/ic/rates, illuminate thy options:
pros: lack of exertion
cons: art will not sell, nor will it be respected. If it does sell, it's by a stroke of luck, and will still not be respected. If it sells & is respected, then consider yourself the greatest artist ever because with minimal exertion, your art sells and is respected. Have a cookie.
pros: your art depicts reality to a certain degree. Your art is likely to be respected and sold. Congrats, you also win a cookie.
cons: you are a human camera at best.
cons: your art is deep, and so is your soul. too bad nobody respects your art. but you don't care what people think! looks like you won the cookie battle in the end. Props.
"but none of those sound appealing to me so/ic/rates! what do I do?"
>"Realize there is no legion of followers nor formulaic approach that will ever satisfy you.
Make your art the misshapen puzzle piece.
Become a scavenger in your life for the things everyone else leaves behind, for no reason other than to do it."
hi gais anyone knows how to make something like this? any specific software? or just plain word art?
Leaves! Whatcha think? Worth anything?
let's make a thread about art with unfortunate implications, I begin:
>investigating mesopotamian art
>article about ancient musical instruments
>sees this detail
The pharaohs and emperors would wear clothing to resemble giant animals such as lions. Going with this, they might have been furries who slammed literal animals. The "animal" standing in the last panel must be human because there isn't a tail, and it's pleasuring the real animal.
I made this a year ago. It isn't exactly good, but at least it has an idea, and considering my drawing skills... yeah.
I leave this picture if you want to make something legitimately good with this, or whatever you want.
I know it has a lot of flaws, but, I don´t really bother. I´m not good at this
