I have a struggle /ic/. Was wondering if anyone could relate or help... I have crippling anxiety and can't function without prescription medication. It's neccissary for me to hold a job. But it's really held me back when it comes to art. Before I took the medicine I was full of ideas and always felt creative. Nowadays I struggle for a long time to even come up with a pose I want to draw. If I don't have a reference, I'm sunk, cause I'm left up to my imagination which feels completely non existent.
>>2552138 Watch movies, read books, go outside, listen to music, get a hobby, look at a lot of art and photography. Keep a small notepad with you at all time to quickly jot down an idea or thumbnail if you are ever struck with a brief moment of inspiration before it disappears.
Odd I have anxiety that at times borders on agoraphbia, particularly when I'm in situations where I'm stuck somewhere I can't leave, like work meetings, weddings, lectures, going to the dentist, etc. I deal with it as best I can but even the smallest things can be a huge struggle. Sketching during these things to the extent I can helps take my mind of it and even when I'm out on my own using the right side of my brain I'm able to forget all of those thoughts and the circular anxious thinking...

Hey. First time tablet buyer here needs some advice. So im going to buy tablet next week and i plan to buy Intous medium art. I have 24inch 1920x1080 monitor. Is tablet's size going to be enough? I also read some article and it tells that intous pro small is better for screen like i have. Both same price about 200€. Im not going to spend any more than 200€ Tell me what you think.
Well, i can tell you one thing, dont get a Bamboo Capture, Splash, ect, allot of support has now been discontinued. Intuos is my nest stop, not sure what model but i'm looking around and in the market for a new one. Anyone would like others suggestions too
>>2548720 it's fine, just don't be creepy about it. don't make it obvious that you're drawing them, make it look as if you're looking past them and not staring. i'd imagine the only reactions you'll get will be positive
After seeing this George Clooney game I'm curious if /ic/ is down for more fun. Have you ever seen those threads on other boards where you pause at a certain time in a movie, post the screencap, and others guess what it is?
Let's do it on hard mode. Pause at 33:33 on a movie of your choice, and draw the fucker. Others guess. Let's say you can have a 10 second grace in either direction if you pause at a point that's completely useless.
I'd been planning to but as I got started I realized I'm too damn drunk to do anything recognizable. If nobody bites I'll post something tomorrow to get the ball rolling, though it probably won't be that great.
What are the benefits of a light box? Are they meant exclusive for tracing? The lighting in my room kinda sucks so I have been considering buying one, but not sure where to start as far as specs go. Can anyone recommend a decent, cheap-ish one? Recommendations for a scanner would also be nice. Thank you.
>>2551826 A tablet, obviously. Probably one on the cheaper end (unless you have enough to get somethung better, I got a wacom intuos medium for 150$), and if you don't have a laptop, then a laptop or a 2-in-1 would be good. Honestly unless you've been doing traditional art for a while, I don't recommend skipping over the pencil and paper stage because you'll be more inclined to waste your time on polishing and ctrl+z

I used to have a large passion for doing art and making a career out of it. I thought I could do something in the freelance world as long as I was smart about it.
But you know what? It's all bullshit. At the end of the day, for a career, you don't decide what you draw. You may very well draw only banal things. You're a bitch to most people. Writers are superior to you because they can weave in for better stories than you can depict in a single painting.
I've honestly come to believe that drawing and painting are the lowest form of art and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Are you fucking retarded? Obviously as a freelancer you draw what others tell you to draw and all you decide is whether or not you take the job. That's the very nature of being a commercial artist taking commissions.
Im using the default chalk brush in photoshop and every time i try to change one of the settings (like minimum opacity or opacity control), it resets immediately after i make one stroke. Does anyone know what the problem is? This is very frustrating
tool presets saves all the changes in the brush settings, in another different menu and have the advantage to name it whatever you want. At least it worked for me because it remains the same no matter I swap the brushes.
>>2550778 Why do anime artists always have fucking bird wings in their pencil holders? Is it to brush away eraser shavings? Why can't they just blow them off the page or wipe with their hand? I've never seen one in a store before.
Because we should not have to make new threads or post in draw threads with our fundamental exercises. Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make your mom proud.
