78 KB,
So I went to Japan for a month and did 3 freelance projects for a visual-K store (drawing designs to print on the clothing).

Upon leaving, the owner said he'd like to continue working with me through email, and he gave me the specs for 3 more illustrations he wanted.

I get back to the U.S. and complete the very basic sketches in a week and email him. It was how I was working with him in the store: I'd make the basic sketches, and he'd tell me what changes he'd want and I'd make them, then ink.

I emailed him May 20th and haven't...

Wait another month, after 3 months, it's likely too late. 90 days is when e-mails are auto deleted generally.

Aside from that, do you speak Japanese, anon? How do you do freelance work in Japan and then just come back to U.S.?

Give him another week, do it before July. E-mail errors happen plenty, especially for old people. He might've missed it entirely.

Thank you for the advice. So I guess I could wait another 2 weeks combining these two suggestions?

As for how I got work there...it's kind of a "luck" story. Literally, all I did was walk into the store. The guy liked my outfit and he randomly asked me if I drew and if I had a sketchbook on me he could look at. I showed him, and he wanted me to draw some things for him. I speak very basic Japanese. I attempted to write my email both...

I can't find anything on this guy from his pre-Disney days.

Did he seriously come straight out of a public liberal arts college, move to California, and then start animating for Disney after working as a tour guide for them for a little bit? He went from an internship to a supervising animator in a little over 5 years. What was in that letter he got from Frank Thomas, the willpower and skill of a thousand old men? A wish granting incantation?

This man is the hero we all need. I wish there was more information on him. What an inspiration.

I had an animation teacher who got picked up during their 90's Renaissance. He said during the 90's, it wasn't as hard to be an artist/animator and get picked up by Disney because they were aggressively looking for people. Remember it was still recent that Don Bluth took their remaining good artists and ran and they had to start training all new people and re-assigning department heads. They almost couldn't find ENOUGH 2D animators just to meet the requirements they needed to pull off stuff like...

You won't get much specific help unless you actually post your image that you are struggling with.

If you are really stuck you can colour pick off an image that has the palette you want. Flat colours can look good on almost any inking style btw.

well if pic is related, dont make the lines black but a darker value off the colors they are attached to works well I think.

Sure, there's lots of basic issues with this, but at least the artist is clearly pushing their boundaries and trying something different. I'd be interested in seeing their work in another 5 or 10 years in the hopes that they continue to pursue their own aesthetic while filling in the gaps of their technical skills.

Or you can be a dick and make fun of them.

I work mostly in one or two layers for basically this reason. When I was using multiple layers it was infuriating, and it was distracting to have to regularly stop and make sure my layers were in order.

Nowadays I generally have a foreground and background layer, and generally use a lot of temporary layers then merge them down pretty soon after using them. I lock layers I don't want to merge into by accident.

I tend to paint rather than do detailed linework, though.

it kind of depends on what you prefer and what art you make honestly.

I personally would take a multi-media sketchbook, micron pens, a white gel pen, something to color with. I guess colored pencils in your case, for me, those take too long to color in large spaces, so I use markers. Prismacolor markers blur your ink for sure though. it can have a nice affect if intended.

Or you could use good ol' pencil and eraser. I dislike anything lighter than 2B. A kneaded eraser is really fucking helpful too.
>>
Buy all the things. A few sketchbooks and a pencil wrap with some graphite/color pencils, brush pens, markers, and a technical pen/rollerball/fountain pen/whatever the fuck you like. Maybe a small box with some watercolors or gouache and a waterbrush. If you're carrying stuff to work every day a big box of color pencils is probably going to be clunky.
>>
Colored pencils are extremely time consuming. I prefer sketching with a pencil then doing line work with a pen and finishing it with markers and details on top with colored pencil.

Your lines wont run if you use the right kind of ink with it. Most microns and Fiber Castell inks are not dissolved by the alcohol. The markers give you a very quick way to lay down brilliant colors and then you can do detail work with the pencils.

The biggest down side to this is the cost. Markers, pencils, and paper with a smooth finish are expensive.

Do a hundred more. Do a thousand more. Just keep drawing.
Most will be shit, that's a fact. But eventually they'll all amalgamate into a grey blurr.
The only ones you'll truly remember are the good ones.
You think studios are full of perfect, faultless art? No, they're full of trash. But they're absolutely filled to BRIM with trash.
You only see the good.

You'll also get better and they'll be less trash. Your trash will become another person's goal standard.

Can looking at too many nude men make you gay? I'm 25 and never felt anything but straight or been in a relationship or had sexual relations with a man, but I'm worried if I start drawing male nudes from reference I might turn gay. I know that's not supposed to be how it works, but I think about other things I didn't like at first, like coffee or beer when I was young, or even more recently graphic novels and black and white movies.

I don't have anything against being gay, but I guess I do; I don't want to be gay. Will looking at naked...

How does he have such an abstract understanding of light and form that he can use a brush to make such a detailed face/person? It starts out looking like random lines and strokes but at the end the form is unmistakable. How to develop this skill? What do you have to study to be able to do this?

Also, I've been wanting to start using brush pens just to see what I can make, but I heard that using them can lead to bad habits forming. How true is this?
