I'm having an issue with my brushes, no matter what the settings are. There's rings appearing as if they are not transitioning smoothly. This makes coloring drawings extremely difficult/annoying.
In the image below I've drawn a line with a soft brush both with my mouse and my tablet. The settings i'm using should be irrelevant as i have not changed them for months now and the issue was not there until yesterday.

Seriously, fuck this fucktard. So lazy. He thinks being dead is a good enough reason to stop improving. It's been a century since his last painting, and he decided to become a NEET and just sleep in his underground chamber. Fuck this guy.
How do you sell out so hard it's not even art anymore? I heard a few times in the past you can draw furry porn for forum goers. I'd rather not draw furry porn unless I really really have to, but I'm sure there's a few other kinds of porn that rich shut-ins will pay for.
Have you ever tried yourself?
If this doesn't work well in the first place, do you have any other niche suggestions that I could get into drawing so I can get commissions?
>>2318413 If you start spamming your furry art all over /b/ and /pol/ the offers will comes and before you know it you will have been lead to secret forums of fur faggotry. Just remember that furfaggots don't like fakes so you got to spice up your posting of drawings with stories about how you are a huge furfaggot and be overly sensitive to any critique. A good way to blend in among them will be to see any subject as an opportunity to bring up furfaggotry.

I've been working on my drawing for some 3-4 years, and at the beginning I didn't really have a method and I haven't really been disciplined throughout, and it shows on my work.
So right now I'm back to studying from books and working on my drawing skills, however I'm not having fun drawing anymore. I mean, I know studies aren't supposed to be fun, but when I go and try to draw the things I want to draw, it's more frustrating than anything.
I just don't like what I draw anymore, and it doesn't make me want to draw and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2318275 If you look up some great concept artists it sometimes helps, if you don't feel terrible by comparing their work to your current skill. Perhaps you need to build up your imagination from influence, like watching movies, playing vidya, or boredom google image searches helps a lot.
Normally I would post stuff in draw thread, but individual threads seem to be made all the time so whatever, my plan's to post character designs I've done and if anyone gives a shit I'll draw more showing off who they are and what they do.
This is the protagonist of a low-fantasy comic I'm still developing. She's frighteningly strong, knocks fuckers over like bowling pins.
Really? Nuts. She's actually missing her right breast because an arrow covered in animal shit grazed her chest a couple years back and caused an infection, so they had to get her hammered to amputate it. My anatomy's shaky, though, so your misunderstanding is my bad.
Here's another character from the same story, this guy being forced by his dad to be a general, to the annoyance of actual military guys. Plus they think he's a total pussy because he's good with a bow but not with a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2318257 Keep in mind that the difference between using style to compensate for the lack of knowledge of anatomy and then basing a style on a solid understanding of the same makes a big difference for the end result. An easy fix could be to add some well structured background scenes and environments and those are easy to reuse. But of course if your comic offers other things like compelling storytelling or humor then that might not matter.
How do you know how good or bad you are at art? I'm always terrified I will die, and God will tell me, "yes you sucked at drawing the whole time and everyone just felt bad for you so they told you you were good. also you were very ugly"
>>2318037 If you've been doing it seriously for less than 3 years you probably suck. If you can make a living off it you probably are at least okay. If you can put your art next to your heroes and not see much of a difference then you probably are great.
The only time I feel confident I'm proficient at drawing is when: -my dog barked at a painting I made cause she thought it was a real person -someone is bashing someone else's art in comparison to mine (ex. in drawing class some kid made a big obnoxious deal that I was the best) -someone doesn't call my drawing "good" they say instead "professional"
>>2318042 >...less than 3 years you probably suck But what about learning curves? Not everyone progresses at the same time. >make a living off of it you probably are at least okay But what about people like Leifield?
First you should post this in the draw thread or beginner thread. Fire can be tricky to draw, but i've found that creating a darker red base and then another layer over that using low opacity strokes of brighter and brighter color works best...Also alternate with a low strength eraser to clean the edges of the flame licks to create the shape you want. Lightly erase away some areas since fire is semi transparent while also having varying "thickness" to the brighter light emitting areas. I'm probably not the best but this is what i mean.
^ Fire curls and twists as it rises. Fire should have a central column of height with lesser ones around it. Yours has too many nearly even height flames, and they are just simple peaks. Add in bits of flame that have separated (not many) from the main body of it near the top as you'd see in real flame. Also add in a few bits of cinders above the fire and you could even add a bit of smoke too. Smoke is really easy...just pick a dark gray color and do low opacity blots overlapping each other upward in a column above the fire...lightly blend them a bit and then shape it up...

>>2317344 Well anon. It's impossible for us to tell without a context as we don't know what they are trying to do but if I had to make a guess based on just that picture I think my edit might help you understand.
I'm just watching Marshall vandruff's perspective drawing series and he's talking about drawing an circle in perspective, in which u don't simply connect the four axis points on the sides of a circle but apparently have to find the axis of the ellipses through vanishing point lines??? I don't understand it at all.
>>2317252 I hope it's not his actual workflow and was done just for the photo. It wouldn't be the first time an artist poses next to their art with a fake workflow because it makes a nice photo for a newspaper.
It seems to me that starting "late" is much less of a problem in art than in other fields like music, sport, or dance.
People will tell (and evidence favours their view) that to be a proffesional violin player or ballerina you must have begun your developement in the field at least before the age of 8. This to me does not seem to be true for drawing, painting, or sculpting.
>>2316688 That's Suehiro Maruo's very own style. In order to draw like him, you gotta leave your textbooks aside and focus on what makes his art so unique by observing, then try to apply it to your own drawings. Loomis or Vilppu can only give you the soil to work with, whatever comes out of it depends completely on you and cannot be taught by anyone but yourself.
