>>2384368 Thanks, I think I kind of have a grasp, I would have tried to implement it but as nose bro pointed out the hands did not connect so I had to scrap it in order to make a pose that actually fit the hands.
>>2384184 Oh well, that is too bad I find it more appealing this way

how do you hold your pen/pencil/whatever? Pics pls
Because I really can't help but wonder something. i mean shit i wonder a lotta things but yanno
Could the way I've been holding it since as a child be affecting my drawing? Pic related. Sorry it's a little harder to tell the difference, but to me, it is a huge difference.
Left pic which is the "correct" way that I never learnt is pretty much holding it between your thumb and index. It feels really stiff to me and awful and all. Right is holding it between my middle... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Any advice when it comes to drawing lips/nose/eyes? I was able to draw an eye pretty well, but I went to draw a different eye from reference and it looked flatter than hell.
The same issue arises when drawing noses/lips. How can I make them look like proper 3D forms without shading? If I draw them they look like flat ugly outlines. How much help will drawing less lines do?
Is buying a used tablet any good? I'm getting an intuos pro m, and I've got the chance to buy it half the normal price which is a significant differance. On the other I wonder if it won't be used up or what not. I have yet to ask how long did the previous user have it. While on the other hand I just feel uneasy, as if being denied untoched, virgin device. What would You suggest?
Wacom tablet are general quality and can be bought used, but look that you get the pen with extra exchangeable nibs (the thin tip of the pen), since they are rather expensive (up to 15$ for 5 little pieces of worthless plastic), that the surface of the tablet is not worn out too much and if the usb cable is directly connected to the tablet (not interchangeable like Intuos 3) , check for its condition. Also you should rather ask this in the question thread, while you get probaly more answers with this thread, it can be deleted within hours, since tablet threads are semibanned.
So my personal opinion is that between attending art collage and self teaching, self teaching is definitely better if you are smart about it. Between self teaching and attending a good atelier program, atelier programs win out by a long shot. The Atelier programs I can recommend are The Florence Academy of Art, Angel Academy, Swedish Academy of Realistic Art and The Repin Academy. I attend one of these and have frequent contact with students at the others, they all have have good instructors and produce highly skilled students. If you want to learn how to properly draw...

Dip pen thread. I've been wanting to start with dip pens and I've heard a lot of conflicting information about how to get the coating that the nibs come with off. I was told burning them with a candle is the most effective way, but other sources have strongly advised against it because it can warp the metal. Also, how important is the brand of ink you use? Which one do you prefer?
I'm interested to hear about your experiences with art workshops or other online services offering art education be it CGMA, conceptart.org LEVEL UP!, pencilkings.com oor whatever else you used and how it helped you if it did.
>>2383007 workshops are garbage, take the actual classes or a mentorship on patreon. CGMA, schoolism, some of the learnsquared shit is good. If you're gonna do a mentorship make sure the teacher is worthwhile, like james paick, john park.
Ignore me , i'm just a passing-by faggot . I have a tumblr for over 4 years now and i've seen the art community and shit and i was planning to post my art more often and actually make a serious blog with my art on it after i go to college but i've seen some people using also wordpress and other blogging platforms. So , my question is , why do you use tumblr/wordpress/blogger whatever you are using ? And your experiences on other platforms and such ? I want to make a wordpress website for my portofolio and webcomic but i'm sceptic a little. Is it flexible... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey guys, about a week ago I and my partner launched our web comic "Death, Acceptance and Everything In-Between". I know it seems like shameless promotion (and to some extent it is) but we're really aiming to find the most raw criticism that we could get. I'd really appreciate it if you took the time to read it and give some feedback about whatever you think needs improved.
