New day, new thread.

I am boxman, and am taking requests for nude poses.
If I didn't get to your request, I probably saw it, so just make it again and I'll get to it.

I've been invited to the local Comic Con near me as an artist with a booth. I'm trying to get my name out there so I'd like to print some of my art into 3 different sizes the biggest being 16x20 and hand them out for free to people who'd like them.

How do I go about starting this? I have a month left until the convention. What printers should I look into buy and what is the average cost of them? I would go to the local FedEx Office store and ask them to print a couple batches but 5 of the 10 pieces I'd like to print are somewhat NSFW pinups, so...

Also, what kind of paper should I use? I'm assuming a glossy.

Bumping this, I'm curious about making prints/ getting them made. Sorry I'm of no help, OP. If anyone has an opinion on scanning vs dslr photo of large oil paintings for prints, I'd like to hear it.

Also, I don't think you should worry about the nsfw stuff. Their job is to copy/print, not to judge.

Aside from them giving me the stink eye, if I was printing 1 of the images with is topless and a customer in the store saw it I'm sure they'd raise a stink.

want to be commercial artist

>do 'good' work. work that has elements of subtlety, aspires to be technically proficient, displays skillful use of art foundation principles, tries to avoid mainstream elements, tries to bring some tastefulness to usually cliche and overdone subject matters

make about 2k a year working my absolute ass off, sending millions of emails, replying to thousands of job posts, contacting hundreds of people (ad's amongst those)

>do commercial garbage type work and very low effort porn. treat it like a business making very coldly calculated decisions and moves, completely detaching my ego and person from the work and hiding behind an alias. not caring too much about how i treat fans/clients, treating them and the work as very disposable. doing quantity over quality (to an extreme degree)

Make about 900$ a month CONTINOUSLY without working too hard (6 days a week, 9 hours per day. this is not-too-hard by artist standards, not by real-job standards). popularity snowballs rapidly, can increase comission prices regularly, clients incredibly grateful for me taking their comission, incredibly patient with me when i take about 2 months to finish it, never ask for revisions, always reply like 'wow amazing thank you WOW I LOVE IT' even when it's total trash.

What do i have to do in order to keep the fire burning /ic/ ? I'm so freaking close to jumping into commercial garbage as a full time career. It's incredibly depressing to see high aspirations so utterly unrewarded.

i now got a dayjob in which i make around 1300$ working 3 shifts per week. i have the freedom to do what i want with my remaining time. i either make MORE money, and snowball my commercial-garbage business further, or i keep working on/studying for my more upscale/serious/respectable work but by this point that feels like a waste of time.

fuck this is depressing. it's like you want to be the next kurosawa but people throw money at you the moment you start shooting amateur gonzo porn

well, similar situation here.
painting and illustrations did not cut it for me. Never found inhouse jobs and freelance is shit.

Went full media graphic design. Easy tasks (from an illustrators standpoint) The only really challange thing is comming up with good ideas at times. It pays well and I have somewhat fun doing it.

I paint in my freetime... but not that much anymore really.

I know what you mean. Got serious about getting good around 4 years ago, watching Feng and Gnomon tutorials, doing pleb-tier ebin scifi and fantasy. Now this generic commercial stuff makes me incredibly bored and depressed. I haven't even made any money off of it, it just killed my enjoyment of the genre and my enjoyment of painting....

Everything in the picture is pixelated/blurry as hell... you definitely want to work bigger. Besides that, the shape of the thing is just sort of lumpy overall. Are you using a reference?

no references. But I agree I need to work bigger.

One more thing, how do I train creativity? I can practice drawing till my hands hurt but how do I train to think of new and interesting things?

Is it more important for people to browse and check your work in any way possible rather than focusing on getting good to the point people cared?

Yes, if you want to make money doing this.

Check out this guy's Patreon intake vis-a-vis his skill level: https://www.patreon.com/markydaysaid?ty=h

That's how much more important marketing is than skill level. You don't actually have to be that great of an artist to make a good living doing it. Conversely, it's totally possible to be really good and still struggle if you don't market yourself well.

Also, you will probably never regard yourself as "good enough." That's a trap a lot of people fall into.
>>
>>2306333
If you want to sell yourself and your art as its own product, like what patreon artists do, then marketing is more important. If you want to work for clients, then skill is more important.

is it a meme to say you dont practice that much?

I ask really great artists how often they practice and they always say they never practice.

Its bullshit, r-right?

They might have different ideas of practice than they assumed you do. Any great artist does art either a lot or for a very long time. No exceptions.
>>
>>2305908
I'm a really great artist, I practiceD. But the skill remains no matter how long you fuck around. I take more time thinking about my ideas than actually creating them. (not gonna post my art because holy shit fuck you)
>>
To add on to what >>2305912 says, I think that a lot of pros don't "practice" the same way beginners do. Like people on /ic/ will do photo studies and copy out anatomy books and watch video lectures on colour and stuff. But once you reach a certain level you've already done those basic exercises for a number of years and know how light and anatomy work and how to paint and observe things. At that point those exercises are not as useful.

Personally I have basically stopped doing studies the last year or...

Why exactly are artists paid so poorly? Is it because the field is completely over saturated? Or is it because there isn't enough demand for people with drawing skills?
13 replies and 2 images submitted. Click here to view.

Option C: Most artists undervalue themselves.
>>
Over saturation, under selling artists, and cultural shifts which put the arts on the backburner.

aside from entertainment value that only people with money can afford, the rest of the world tries to survive it's daily life without the aid of something so useless.

What sort of routines do you generally stick to?

-Spend 2 hours looking for ref. Fap to nudes.
-Drawing for 20 minutes, get frustrated. Fap to stick figure.
-Break for lunch.
-Look up tutorials for another hour.
-Resolve to just pick something and draw.
-Fap because you're going to die alone.
-Get into the mode. It's dawn. This looks great. Finally broke through. Pick this up again tomorrow.
-Bed time. Fap thinking about ex from years ago who got someone new within days of the breaking up while you've never had so much as a right-swip...

- Drawing for 5h/day
- 1rst hour trying to draw from imagination what I've learned the day before.
- next 4h: Anatomy with a lot of repetitions and exercises to know what is fixed on the mind.

I use one app with a Pomodoro timer without the long break, only with small 5 minutes breaks every 25 minutes. It works to me. My focus is OK.
All my notifications are off, no text messages, no phone calls, no music, no computer, to try to focus better.
