Ye', I'm that retarded. I'm cracking open the Loomis books and I'm doing my best to understand them and mimic him, but when it all comes down to it, I can't ever be certain it's sinking in. Considering illustration is a skill and, as a result, takes so long to develop any kind of improvement, how can I be sure I'm actually freakin' improving? That I'm studying properly? That I'm not practicing shit to master shit? I genuinely am at the most base level of 'what am i even doing'.

Join a community where others can see your progress and criticize you (and grow a thick skin if you haven't already).
Make the shame of not working hard enough and the fear of not progressing in front of everyone else's eyes after months your fuel.
???

You seek criticism from others if you don't trust yourself, but you need to cultivate your ability to be self critical as well.
Being self critical isn't looking art your art, going "it's shit" and feeling like garbage. It's analysing your work and determining what you're doing wrong. When you know that, you can seek out books/videos/etc teaching that thing and you can practice it.

Obviously though when starting out, everything is shit. Don't fret overly much about 'practising wrong' until you've got some mileage...

Obvious answer: keep your drawings with a date, and from time to time, compare them.

And >>2544975 is correct, don't be critical for the sake of feeling retarded, you're supposed to think how to make the picture better, not how "late" you are compared to some internet artist with a Lovecraftian name like Alpelflelgler.

Hair has different kind of tones. Highlights, Midtones and shadows. If you dont know this kind of thing, drawing realistic hair is difficult.

Hi guys,

I'm looking to get into art - I'm always in awe of what my arty friends show me, and know I could spend all day admiring paintings and possibly learning to draw myself, but I have no idea how to begin. I'm literally at what you guys would probably call the basic, Mona Lisa, Salvador Dali kind of stage.

How do you find artists who you admire? What are some fundamentals about art? Am i correct in thinking that in terms of psychedelia, painters got there before musicians by a few centuries?

How do you consume art, is it improper to simply look at an artist's work on Google Images? Do you go for a coffee-table book instead?

Is it better to buy unique paintings, rather than mass-produced reproductions of the classics? Any particular blogs to follow?

>How do you find artists who you admire?
Once you have a general idea of your tastes it is easy to find more similar artists since no one exists in a vacuum.

If I were you I would spend a few evenings just casually skimming through wikipedia's pages on art history and familiarizing yourself with general movements and what they looked like. From there you can decide what you like and delve deeper into more specific things. If you just want to browse a lot of art,then wikiart or the-athenaeum or google art project are all good.

>What are some fundamentals about art?
There will be different answers to this, and to do it properly you would need a book or two to cover it all. If you just want to know how to look at or appreciate art you just need to know your taste, the context of the image, the subject matter, and some idea of the techniques used.

>How do you consume art, is it improper to simply look at an artist's work on Google Images? Do you go for a coffee-table book instead?
Both are fine. Going to galleries is the best because you see the original and not a reproduction. With the internet though you can find incredibly high resolution images which are almost as good as the real thing.

>Is it better to buy unique paintings, rather than mass-produced reproductions of the classics?
Depends on what you want out of it. Nether is better than the other, they are just different.

This Anon >>2543689 said it all very well. If you want to go drawing/painting yourself, check out new sticky that is being currently made, you have link to it in /beg/inner thread in OP. Also art book thread and first post is worth checking out.

Besides stuff you would often find on /ic/ which is usually for realist/classical art education, I would advise you finding some stuff about composition, narrative aspect of art and design.

Myself would recommend EveryFrameAPainting channel, while usually dealing with films,...

I actually like it, it often provokes interesting thought or is at least entertaining to look at. I don't really consider it to be true art, but I think it's fun.

do you workout regularly, /ic/? It worries me a bit that I'm becoming more sedentary, due to college and art studies. Good luck that I don't like garbage food but I don't eat too much, what do you do to stay active and healthy but still progressing with your studies?

I don't, but I'm starting to try to improve my fitness.

A lot of people underestimate the correlation between physical fitness and mental wellness. For you to be at your best in art, you need to be healthy. I've started with sleeping better and eating better, but I want to work in some exercise to maximize it.

I've been reading a book on willpower lately and it's fascinated me how much of an impact your nutrition and sleep has on your self discipline. If you don't eat well or sleep well, you're far, far less likely to be productive...

Some of you here must have experienced this.

You get a tablet.
You place the pen on the tablet.
The cursor shakes around like a motherfucker.
You try to draw a straight line and it looks like pic related.

Obviously I've tried all the fixes and useless "just update the driver" suggestions on Google. has anyone has this happen, and how did you resolve it?
Or could my tablet be old and busted?
It's an Intuos Pro Large.
