Recently I’ve been going through a quarter life crisis and I’ve been really looking at my life and where its headed with this art thing. I decided to write down everything I want for myself realistically in the next year, and what I want is pretty simple:

A studio apartment
Basic utilities - Water, Electric, Internet, No cable
Food, Uber, phone

Simple right? So I started looking up prices of these things so i’d know exactly what I have to achieve.

Studio apartments in this area are around $500 - $900 a month for rent. For first month’s rent...

I used to think these were decent prices back when I started my illustration journey, but when you factor in the sheer amount of time it takes to create applibot quality illustrations not to mention revisions and waiting on clients, you’re looking at (at least for me) 3 weeks to a month on one illustration.. For just $8hundred bucks.. if you’re lucky maybe you can get $2k. But only if you’re super pro level and well known and also have a great relationship with the company which takes years to cultivate.. Of course you could take on multiple jobs in one month, but when...

>caring this much about pay
Artist are people who generally don't give a fuck about these things, anon. For good reason. They seem much more worth in doing art and enjoy it. Pay is almost nothing to them. It's like, "Oh I get paid as well to do this? Well, why not?" They could very well work free, but that would not fly in this day and age so of course they get paid. Besides, as long as you're good, the money will come rolling in, it doesn't matter what you do, just be good and they will raise the price just for...

Caring this much about pay? You know you need to make money to live right? For you to try and justify how fucked the industry is when it comes to decent pay by saying you should love so much you dont care what you get paid is complete bullshit dude. I love art but I also love not fucking starving and having a roof and mattress, maybe a pillow. The things I listed are not outlandish wants and you're basically saying I'm asking for too much.. What?

How do I into Yoh Yoshinari dynamicism? Studies of his work? Focus on improving my gestures? Become a god at anatomy? What?

You have to think like an animator. So you need to be able to think of form and shape at the same time, and understand movement and action really well, then distort the forms to support the action. There's no magic trick, it's just a lot of experience and knowledge. Books on animation or school for it will help you think in the right way (and teach basic principles like anticipation or squash and stretch) and approach it correctly, but you can teach yourself it too.

Watching videos of sports or other...

that requires a lot of work, but you could still make it. Just focus on bringing those main points out with contrast, took me quite long to find humans out of that.

Another painting, seems like one painting per day is the limit. Easy to see that this is second, attention couldn't last longer than hour or so. These are practices, kinda "proof of concept", so not too stressed about it.

No. Even if 2D animated movies were still popular, I doubt you would ever made it, and even if you did, animators were still treated like crap. Your only hope is tv, or like the picture of your opening post, with a kickestarter or something similar.

Use more line weight in your drawings. Thick and thin, not just one or the other.

I don't draw that much differently from years ago, but my drawings look 90% better because of line weight.

that's such a vague fucking question that demands such an open ended-answer

it's all just study. study real life mechanics and understand how they work so you can translate that into your own art. look at popular sci-fi related media; don't copy but observe how it goes together to make it believable

I kinda figured I had to study real life mechanisms just how I'm studying real life humans so I can draw them.

I guess I was kind of thinking maybe there is some good videos/books out there?

Well, this just means I'm going to have to go for that full on "renaissance man" life and get my hands a little dirty with engineering.

Your input is helpful though! My question was probably really vague because I'm just lacking direction right now.
>>
>>2538169

Oh, I guess one more specific question I have is how will studying real life mechanisms help me make something believable but non-existent like Cyborgs and Mechs? I'm guessing they share some basic resemblance to real life machines and I add in extra things for flair? Or maybe I'll figure that out on my own as I study them?

For class i have to create a body of work revolving around fortune cookies, but i cant think of many ideas. If any of you guys have any ideas or things you would like me to draw ill do it. There arent many rules for the project outside of having a fortune cookie somewhere on the piece.
The pic is a reference of what i can draw and has some cookies.

1) That's a retarded assignment.
2) Next time resize your image and rotate it.
3) Does it need to actually have the cookie in the piece? I would take a different approach, and do pieces based on what fortune cookies mean/represent. You can make a list of all the words or ideas you associate with fortune cookies and then base pieces on those themes. For example, here are some things I think of:
-Americanization of culture
-hopes and desires
-opening things
-discovery
-...."in bed"
-modernization...

New York City has a pretty great art community, especially for illustration and comics.
If you have the time, I'd check out the Society of Illustrators and see what they have to offer. It's a museum/community focused on both illustration and comic art that offers some pretty great stuff like exhibitions and figure drawing.
Unfortunately, the animation scene over there isn't too great and everything is moving west. There's only a handful of good studios like Titmouse and Augenblick, but other...
