Doesn't matter as long as it is visually appealing.

Some.
Digital is obviously a little more convenient for commissions, but I still see lots of artists sell / do giveaways for the original piece of something done traditionally and distributed digitally.

If you want to make money traditionally, find pet owners and draw portraits of their pets. They love that shit.

What's the best way to learn human anatomy?
Is it best to just draw people without studying anatomy and then to start fleshing out your paper thin knowledge with the muscular system, etc?

It feels counterproductive to just copy muscles onto paper without any idea of how the planes work, etc.

What's a good place to learn human anatomy?

I don't really feel that just copying pose maniacs teaches much. I think each time you draw a human you should spend a couple of hours on it that way you learn every little thing you can.

I believe hundreds of references/life drawings are the best possible ways to do this.

i wish i had some sort of 3d model with muscles i could just angle and pose to learn from

Well I mean there are tons of anatomy books out there.
Artistic Anatomy, Hampton and Bridgman are the ones I suggest you to look at, then continue doing your posemaniac exercises.

I'm quite new to the ic-board but haven't seen any pixel art.
I mostly draw normal stuff but am currently working on a game with a friend and I wanted to try out pixel art.
The pic is the room I am currently working on in the game and any critique is welcome.
Post your pixel art, if you have any below, would be awesome to see what level others are on.

There really aren't a whole lot of pixel-artists on ic. I'm not entirely sure why, it may just be a bit of a "specialized" medium. But I'm glad to see people posting their pixel art any time either way.

What are you going for with your image and is there anything in particular you feel could be improved on, but don't know how, etc?

I like pixel art. Currently trying to get into spriting but man, animation is tough.

You REALLY should work on fundamentals (perspective/composition/color theory) before delving into a specialization like pixel art, especially one with so many limitations

Go to pixelation/pixeljoint once you've become decent enough to get meaningful critiques (you can look at all the 0 to 2 replies threads for an idea of when you're still not good at fundamentals to post)

Installation is so 70s. Installation and performance are the mediums of the current academic institution aka boring and 30 years behind. Gives old people a hard on, seems pretty pointless for the younger generation.

Ask local galleries and coffee shops. Don't stop asking. Have a show in a garage or throw down some rugs and rent a tent in a parking lot if you have to. Make yourself.

Big installations that require a team is something you do when your an established artist. You need gallery connections to pull it off most times. Most installation artists have started out painting or sculpting then progressed into installation work. Of course you could argue the definition of "installation". You could say that any artwork that take the room in consideration is an installation piece. Yves Kleins (I think??) empty gallery was an installation because the room *didnt* have any artwork in it. I've made some installation work but they've been...

A good way is to do full figures studies, then try to apply what you learnt by drawing figures from imagination, then study up on the individual body parts you had the most trouble with and repeat.

I made a thread on /r9k/ about this and I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought of this. It's some free mason illuminati shit that conditions you to what a 'perfect' life should look like. Stock images is a weapon for the mind invented for this sole purpose.

so i just came across a revelation:

if you're using a digital platform; your workflow should be as follows:

sketching should not be done with a tablet... you should use beziar curves, shapes, and lines to create the initial sketch and then afterwards you can go over it with a tablet to create more interesting contours.

Does anyone suffer arm pains when drawing for long periods of a time? I've always had issues with my acromion area using "clicking" when I move my arm. If I strict it enough it stops clicking. However, ever since I started drawing, my right arm has always felt very sore, even after doing stretches.

Is this common or should I look more into this?
