Hey /ic/, I want to pursue art as a career and am willing to try my hardest to improve, but first here is my shitty stuff. I'm just here to ask you big players and successful artists about two things. The first is about my worries about art school. I'm almost to the point in life where I need to be thinking about college and I've seen a lot of people on here talk about how if they went back in time they would not go to art school because it was a waste of time and a lot of money. Is this true? Is there a specific school that would be good to go to? And last thing,...

First let me ask you something.

Have you been reading the sticky?

>>2570162
Art School is great for someone like you who lacks the fundamentals and knowledge of art.

People can draw for 6 hrs+ because they know what to improve and always continue to do so

Yes I have, its pretty fun and it's keeping me interested and giving me structure, which I am grateful for.

My mind is fucked. I've given up on my goal of working as a comic/storyboard artist because it's not a realistic ambition and I can no longer bring myself to put effort into something I know I will fail at. The problem is my brain refuses to get out of artist mode so even though I quit drawing a year ago it has been absorbing inspiration and has been doing mental studies on its own to keep its skills up.

It feels like my head is going to explode. Would taking Adderall give me the focus to put my inhibitions aside and throw myself into what my subconscious mind wants?

Adderall's great buddy. But I think you're kinda being overly dramatic.

How old are you? It's not a bad idea to give up on a pro art career, but why not just do art for fun? You're completely done?

I thought about quitting my job to become an artist. I already spend every free minute drawing/practising but I need more time. When I was still NEET I usually spent 5-8 hours drawing a day.

Any thoughts/experiences?

Walt Disney got rejected ALOT before he could publish. Loads of other artists aswell, the thing is, you should STOP caring about the opinion of others, and create your own art with love. That's all there is to it. And when people say its not good enough, go to someone else (publisher, whatever person you need to achieve your...

How do I stop retain everything I learn?
Every time I take a break from breaking real life objects down into simple 3D forms, I have to redraw them for 3 hours before I'm back to where I was before the break.

Is it best to just do 30 minutes of drawing even if I don't feel like it?

>>2569331
When I was at my peak in life drawing, I could slice through objects with my eyes. I was able to easily see the form in any thing in real life.

As soon as I got to that point, I quit doing it. I thought I would be good, and that the knowledge would never leave me. I was totally wrong.

If I get back to where I was, will continuous practice bring me to a place where I can take a break from life drawing?

You're gonna have to define "Break", OP.

Hey all.
I'm not a very good painter in almost every facet. My ability to picture and frame colors is lackluster, my ability to translate sketch to lineless color fields is pretty bad, etc.
I'm a fairly decent animator though, but that doesn't mean much when you don't have the budget to hire background painters.
So, I decided that I would sit down, and really learn the ins and outs of digital backgrounds.
Over the last couple days, although I didn't work on it yesterday, I came out with pic related.
It's not done, but I'm dipping...

Where should you go with Loomis after/not including "Fun with a Pencil" ?

Is "Successful Drawing" the next step? Or is it "Drawing the Head and Hands" or one of his other books?

I think it is "Figure Drawing for all its worth". Then "Drawing heads and hands".
>>
>>2568900

I personally don't quite fancy "Figure Drawing for all its worth", despite all the good things inside the book it didn't click with me as other authors did.

"Drawing the Head and Hands" is pure gold, so is the one I recommend.

Thanks, I'll work on that one!

So... do you guys have a different nick name from your "pen name"?

what do you think about it?

What about art?

nickname's art?

Name surname's art?

different pen name?

surprised at the lack of posts so far...people asleep?

Hello /ic/! I have a little question as a begginer.

I don't have time to draw but I really want to get good at it. Some friends of mine that draw too told me that, to improve, you just have to draw 15 minutes every day.

Is this true? What can I do to have a drawing habit?
14 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.

Draw minimum 15 minutes a day but EVERY DAY. Start now. After developing a habit you will eventually start drawing more.

But again - draw EVERY DAY.
>>
>>2568257
Okay, thank you!
>>
>>2568246

Basically what >>2568257 said. You just need to alway have with you a pen and some paper or journal to draw on. This way you'll always manage to find some time to draw, while waiting for the bus or whatever.

That being said, you would progress faster by reading the books suggested in the sticky then applying that knowledge to your daily session, but of course it's a greater investment in effort and time. Anyway first get the habit of drawing everyday,...
