Art Jealousy

1549246523741
Anyone suffer from self-defeating art jealousy?
You know, you see someone better than you and you get a little salty, or someone who you feel you outskill has a big victory and you get a little jealous?

I feel really bad about it but I get that way, especially with my art friends. They come into chat bragging about some big artist they got to follow them on twitter or their follower milestone, or getting a lot of exposure on some drawing they did and I put on a smile and congratulate them but deep down i'm a little jealous and just feel like giving up.

How do you overcome being a jealous shitbag and just be genuinely happy, or at least not let it get you down and defeated?

What is the appeal of this art style, exactly? Is it even popular outside of tumblr? It seems to me that the general public isn't too fond of this art style.

And I'm not even shitting on this kind of art, I'm just asking as a sell out trying to make some easy bucks.

IF YOU ARE A /BEG/INNER IN ART, please use this thread to post pieces for critique or ask for advice. We should not have to make new threads or post in the /draw/thread with our fundamental exercises.

Previous Thread >>3895367

Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, or you literally are never going to make it

RESIZE YOUR IMAGES TO ~1000 PIXELS:
1)
>screenshot the image and post that instead
2)
>change camera capture settings to something smaller
3)
>send to computer and resize in MSPaint

READ THE STICKY if you need guidance when you haven't even started

Sticky: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uwaXKU7ev6Tw_or__o8ARpUb6r2rCZYJGqwSFV9AD98/edit#bookmark=id.15jx3pyuimvj

TRY TO GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK - many studies are left unreplied, which is a bit sad and can be quite demotivating for the people that try their best to improve, but are left directionless.

REMEMBER, if you've just started out you work will not be good, it doesn't need to be, just get in to the swing of actually drawing, and learning how to study. Most of all, enjoy it.

Alternative Art/Stylization General

mro-fpo
Previous: >>3890464

What is /ALT/?
If you're looking for a place to post your cartooning then you've found the right general. This is /ic/s 1st and only merged hub where both Eastern and Western stylization can coexist peacefully, hence the double title. However, by community demand and long history, this is favorably an Anime general.
>Rules & Guidelines
(1) Any form of cartooning is welcome; so submit and receive feedback from others. (2) Please resize your images before posting. (3) Share your knowledge and (4) Remember to not be afraid of asking for critique. Most importantly I encourage you to keep discussion at a civil level, but you're more than welcome to share your opinions.
>I came for anime. Why does the image OP say cartoons general?
To distinguish from the anime study thread (janitor supported). Please post your studies there and personal work goes here.

So Wacom isn't the only game in town anymore and I've been out of the art/animation scene for several years now. What's the best tech for an artist to use these days in terms of graphic tablets? Would it be better to use a touch screen laptop? Let's use this thread to discuss the best of what's out there. That can go for software as well.

I showed my Japanese art friends /ic/

9242B8A0-09DA-40E5-862B-40A0846EC798
They think you’re all silly.

Especially with your obsessive desire to learn how to draw anime, thinking it’s some Japanese secret.

They thought it was funny reading all the threads and the desperation.

To summarize our talk:
>they think westerners have a better grasp of the fundamentals
>we agreed that Asians have a better sense of aesthetic and stylization
>they think that overreliance on stylization can be a bit of a crutch, one that tends to hold many Japanese artists back
>most of you guys are only seeing the top tier of top tier artists
>plenty of working professionals don’t even come close to that level
>industry is much larger over here, with a lot of opportunity, which is why you see so many really skilled artists come from Japan, a lot more competition

In short, learn your fundies really well, and you’ll impress Asian artists a lot, and they’ll take you a lot further, as you’ll have a strong base. Anime style isn’t limited to only Japanese or Asians, and it’s hilariously silly to think so.

Computer specs

2861_5858e530b782c
What kind of spec do you need for a computer to work on a very high res, say 6k x 8k resolution? I'm using a laptop with i5 7200U and 940MX and it's struggling to run anything beyond 3k x 4k res on Krita. I was wondering if I should build a PC with the Ryzen 5 so I could work on a higher res without lagging.

Also it would be nice if you could post your PC specs and the resolution you're working on as well along with your art program.

I said I'd get back if I received a reply from patreon on if you can have multiple accounts with the same banking info; here is their reply:

You can definitely have more than one account. As of now, you aren't able to manage separate pages under the same email address, so you'll just need to sign up using a different email address for each account you'd like to open. That said, you can use the same banking information for each account.

Cont here if you want to talk about Patreon or maybe other methods or sites to generate income.

I wrote a children’s book but I can’t draw and was wondering if anyone here would be interested in doing art for it. I’m really looking for a partner who would be willing to draw for a lot of books and we split profits vs me pay someone up front for their work but I would entertain people who just want to be paid and then I own the artwork as well. My preference for the former is mostly related to wanting to find someone else to really share a creative vision and collaborate which I think would be more fun.

/asg/ - Anime Study General

093
Discord: https://discord.gg/3bwdfRk

**If you make good copies of anime *properly*, you will be able to draw good anime. If you make bad copies of anime or bad anime styled drawings from photos, you will get better at drawing bad anime. Please think carefully about how you are studying.**

This is the thread for:

1. Posting your anime studies:
>Copy exactly but don’t do it aimlessly. Integrate drawing concepts (construction, color theory, tracing, etc.) into your studies in order to pull information from the reference (anime art, figurines, tutorials) that you can later use for your original work.
>Do a single study multiple times to ensure you address all of your mistakes and memorize the correct process in your head. Attempt drawing it from memory as well.
>You will only be able to effectively deviate from your reference after doing exact copy studies accurately and consistently.
2. General anime style discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.
>Drawing methods, study habits, resources, tutorials, tools, software, etc
>Be specific and try to post a sample of your study attempts before asking for help.

**Keep most of your personal works for /alt/ or the other critique threads. Here we should be drawing copies from good references to mindfully up our mileage, internalize appealing aesthetics, and learn from each other’s processes and knowledge.**

Best crutches

advance-elbow-crutches-turquoise
It has become painfully apparent to me that I lack any kind of talent and daily grinding is not producing the expected gains. I don't want to waste my life grinding for nothing. So I'm going to give up learning to draw but I'm not giving up drawing itself.

Now my focus will be producing results by any means necessary. Tracing, cheating, stealing, having a computer do it for me, etc I don't care I just want to produce good art and bring my ideas to life.

So what are the most helpful crutches a cheating artist can employ? I know about the "camera obscura" but that's not really relevant in this day and age.

Flow's all messed up

place-holder
Hey /ic/, my chick was having a hard time dealing with some issues and decided to take it out on me by attacking my work as a portraitist because my portraits don't make a lot of money and now my confidence is all shot. I have several portraits to complete but now I'm having trouble focusing and my eye's not paying attention. Everytime I try to get back to work, I recall how she told me that I'm wasting my time. To me it's not about the money, it's about the joy I feel while working on a portrait and the smile on someone's face when I give them their portrait. How do I get back on track? pic unrealated. I work mostly with charcoal and occasionally ink and brush. Any help would be appreciated.

>Receive my 30€ brush order consisting of two synthetic Kolinsky Escoda travel brushes
>They are covered in adhesives which I remove, leaving a sticky residue on the brush handle and this is very annoying but I'll rub it off with oil.
>Japanese stationery comes in adhesives that don't leave a residue, why does non-Japanese shit always have sticky residues you have to spend 5 minutes rubbing off with oil.
>Whatever, I take the brushes to the bathroom and carefully wash them with mildly warm water and soap to remove the glue
>Flick the wet brushes and check the sharpness
>They are completely frayed and misaligned and have no shape or point at all
>Swear under my breath for the next 10 minutes while rubbing off the adhesive
Never buy Escoda. Fucking shit company making shit brushes. Brushes these expensive shouldn't be made like this. And fuck reviewers, I swear these people don't fucking paint, they just get a brush in the mail and look at it while it's still glued and imagine it's pretty or they stick it in their ass and decide it deserves 5 stars. What's the fucking criteria for giving 5 stars to a brush that doesn't have anything resembling a point? That it looks somewhat like a brush? That if you dip it into paint the paint doesn't fall off? These brushes have excellent reviews and I thought the price was indicative of quality, the fibers are nice I guess but the workmanship is garbage. It's fucking 1$ chink brush tier garbage. I have another order with a bunch of #2s for inking and I bet that one's gonna be a fucking waste of money too.
The cheap Winsor & Newton cotman brushes are better than this.

I quit drawing girls

D2A1cDVXQAAK7uH
With all these sandals with folks complaining sexy female characters, I !ight as well and play shit safe and drop drawing girls.

it's mainly because I wanna avoid people calling me a internalized sexist for drawing cheesecake. I know, should have gone past that but I'm paranoid very very paranoid. I don't wanna get doxxed for drawing anime tiddie.

I'm not gonna stop drawing female characters but I'm not gonna include them in porn anymore for the foreseeable future until this shit dies down.

Only issue is that I suck at drawing beefy men. Skinny guys I'm good at but men with muscles i suck at.

(The harpy isn't a girl btw, I couldn't find a good enough pic of beefcake...soooo)

pen and ink

71RRKf-9OrL._AC_UL115_
I haven't used these much but I'm having students do pen and ink drawings. I can't tell if there's a difference between this sort of nib and the kind that has 2 pieces of metal (one on top of the other). All we have in the classroom are the latter, mostly fatter ones, so I'm looking to buy some thinner ones. Would this be an ok nib for thin line drawing?

Is there a difference between drawing and calligraphy pen nibs?

>Age restrictions on pornography will come into effect in July, the government has announced.

>After 15 July, all internet users will be forced to prove themselves to be over 18 or be entirely blocked from seeing adult content.

>Under the new rules, any commercial provider of online pornography will have to carry out “robust age-verification checks on users” to ensure they are adults.

>Those checks could include having internet users enter personal details into a privately owned database or buying a pass from newsagents. There will be a number of different ways for people to prove their age, the government said, all of which will be “rigorous” and are not simply typing in a date of birth or ticking a box.

>If pornographic websites fail to comply with the rules, they could have payment services withdrawn or be blocked for all UK users.

So for those of us in the UK who draw porn, we are fucked.

how to get used to a pen tablet?

1531790584212
i got a pen tablet a few days ago (huion h610 v2) and drawing digitally is way more difficult than i expected. my lines shake like crazy even with a stabilizer on and doing stuff like ghosting lines to draw them accurately is way more difficult than with a regular pencil and paper. the only way i feel like i can draw anything comfortably is if i'm zoomed in a shitload, but that doesn't seem like a healthy habit to have.

/asg/ - Anime Study General

BloopArchives-1058282529684361216-20181102_055951-img1
Discord: https://discord.gg/3bwdfRk

**If you make good copies of anime *properly*, you will be able to draw good anime. If you make bad copies of anime or bad anime styled drawings from photos, you will get better at drawing bad anime. Please think carefully about how you are studying.**

This is the thread for:

1. Posting your anime studies:
>Copy exactly but don’t do it aimlessly. Integrate drawing concepts (construction, color theory, tracing, etc.) into your studies in order to pull information from the reference (anime art, figurines, tutorials) that you can later use for your original work.
>Do a single study multiple times to ensure you address all of your mistakes and memorize the correct process in your head. Attempt drawing it from memory as well.
>You will only be able to effectively deviate from your reference after doing exact copy studies accurately and consistently.
2. General anime style discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.
>Drawing methods, study habits, resources, tutorials, tools, software, etc
>Be specific and try to post a sample of your study attempts before asking for help.

**Keep most of your personal works for /alt/ or the other critique threads. Here we should be drawing copies from good references to mindfully up our mileage, internalize appealing aesthetics, and learn from each other’s processes and knowledge.**

Making Characters

2017-12-14_05636
I want to tell stories and I really enjoy coming up with character concepts, but for some reason I always lose interest in drawing them the minute I'm done with the design work.
Even If I come up with a design I really like, I never find myself invested in them or excited to use them for anything. Even when I have a personality in mind when I'm designing them, they always just kinda feel empty.
Am I missing something? Am I approaching the design process wrong? I see plenty of artists and writers who love their characters and make content for them constantly with no trouble at all, and I'd give anything to have that kind of passion for my original work

Nootropics?

bebsi
Heyo /ic/, what's your thoughts on nootropics (smart drugs)? what smart drugs do you use? Have any recommendations? do you notice any difference in the quality of your art?

I began to dabble in it about a week ago, starting with Adrafinil in lower doses. I did not notice any increase or decrease in quality of my art, but I seem less focused on the outcome and more so enjoying the process itself. Looking forward to watching some tutorials and really getting drawn in. Also looking to get my hands on a Racetam and trying that aswell

If these drugs are the sort of things that uni students and millionaires pop, why short yourself? you deserve to be smarter and learn quicker
