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,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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?
>>2568237 Post some stuff you must have hundreds of drawings laying around. Post your best stuff.
Also, dont listnen to ANYONE here. their opinion is just as valuable as a pile of dogshit. 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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

and it's not like they're awful at art, it's just frustrating since i know they want to become an animator / storyboard artist and they won't be able to do that career if they don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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?
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

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,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
