100 KB,
Anyone else uphold themselves to this very high standard that keeps them from enjoying almost anything they make? It really keeps you from liking the things you draw and makes you think nothing will be good enough. I cant really explain it, but Ive had this standard for myself since middle school. Some people I know get a amateurish level and are satisfied with that, but I can't stop until im at a master level. Hope that makes sense and others can relate. Friends say "just draw" but its not a drawing problem, its a not meeting this high standard problem. And the...

It is called the artists curse where you're never happy with your result
It works like a carrot on a stick, almost reaching it but never there
It is good and healthy if you want to grow and if you know about it and use it you can push yourself really far

>but I can't stop until im at a master level
You will probably feel like you will never get there, and even the people you look up to have the same issues. They just learn how to deal with it and look at it objectively

It is natural

I don't know if anybody else has this. Though it's the internet, I'm sure someone out there will feel the same. I do hate when I'm drawing off, and will bail on drawing that day if it's simply out of control.

I do have a procrastination or perfectionist problem. I struggle severely with seeing a project to the end. However, I have most a very creative "in the zone" mood during these throw away stages, where I don't feel committed to a picture.

yes, the standard is what makes you decent. if you were satisfied with the stuff you made while being aware that it's much worse than the average pro, you'll never get to that level.

but that being said, recently i really realized how important it is to draw with absolute confidence regardless of doubts. it's almost like while drawing, you have to be completely and utterly delusional and believe that you are a master of your craft in order to execute everything you've learned properly.

I do small plein-air watercolor sketches in a moleskine sketchbook. I'm trying to find resources or advice on how to improve the quality of my sketches: maybe some wash techniques, ways to simplify my palette, or just ways to generate a better image in general... literally anything.

I'll post some recent sketches.

Time to put your money where your mouth is d/ic/ks.

I just got fired from my job (menial 9-5 shit, nothing to talk about). I have around 20k dollars saved up, which should last me at least till next year.

I'm tired of 9-5 bullshit anons. I want to do art. But I don't know jackshit. I'm starting from zero. I bought a wacom tablet and downloaded Krita. The plan is to study art for a year, even if I don't get to 'make-a-living-tier' (I probably won't) I want to at least be able to walk on that path.

So here's the deal, I'll do whatever exercise, drawing, etc, you ask me to do and post it here. Follow any advice, as long as its specific and short. So, no "read x book and copy all the drawings", you can cite a single page from the book but not the entire thing. Lectures are fine as long as they're not longer than 10 minutes, snippets of longer lectures are fine.

In return, I will do it. I'll do whatever exercise you ask me to do, and you'll get to see my progress (or lack thereof) in this and future threads. Think of it like a game, if you want.

Let's see what you guys got.

I'm sorry but you're gonna have to read, even if you don't want to, some books like the vilppu one and loomis books have worked wonders for me, and I too didn't want to read. all the advice I can give you is read the hampton book and figure drawing for all it's worth by loomis.

Hello /ic/! I am working on a research paper regarding creativity an artists compared to scientists for uni. Would anyone care to answer these questions? Much obliged for your insight! :)

Who in your life has inspired you & why?

What advice would you give others to become more creative?

How important is education to creativity?

How do you deal with creative blocks?

When did you first become creative?

Do you have a specific creative process you need to go through? How did you develop that process?

My main inspiration to start to draw are Barbucci, Matteo de Longis and Nekro. I love the style of these guys and the "worlds" they create around their drawings.

Is hard to advice someone to be more creative. But, there is no doubt reading, watching films and playing games kinda helps to develop the imagination. And not having mental taboos is important too.

The education in creativity is kinda important, creativity without control is as bad as not having creativity.

Once you flip it upside down. You're not supposed to get it right in one try, you need to try, fail, revise, learn from your mistakes then try again. Do it 2 or 3 times.

What is your personality types /ic/, and what type of art do you love?
If you don't believe in Briggs & Jungs personality theory then please ignore this thread.

I'm either INFP or INTP not really sure, have mostly been interested in concept art and illustrations for vidya and would like to do something like that for a living.
Traditional art has always been boring and bland to me, except for some pieces from the romanticism. Specifically the ones that explore darker themes and atmosphere while still having a realistic look, like pic related by Caspar...

Reason I can't decide one of the two personalities is because even though one of the reasons I like concept art is it's logical and realistic nature as I would think would be typical for an INTP, the reason I want to make is even more because of the fact that it'd let me explore entirely new and unique ideas, Like original worlds, creatures etc. From what I've read the interest in something entirely new would be more typical of an INFP, but I could be completely wrong.

I'm INTP and I mainly just do my own thing but I guess I'd also be interested in the concept art sort of stuff? Most of my personal work is stuff like creature design. I love thinking up new species and figuring out how'd they'd work to make it seem more believable.

As for the styles themselves, I like a pretty wide range. I never really cared about what a style is called so it's hard to answer. But typical shit like animu and semi realistic stuff that has nice stylization. Also soft spot for pretty medieval stuff like the tapestries. Don't...
