Go with black and white painting for now, the colors are corpse-y in a very bad way. Also, either go for a painting or a drawing, this is some frankenstein fusion.

Why are some paintings from the "masters" so expensive?

i've been drawing fundies for a couple years strictly on paper using pencil/black pen, also brush pen.
i've been looking to make the jump to digital and 99% of tablets look like a meme. i was gonna get a simple $600 or less one like an xp-pen artist 12, but i feel like unless i have the very best tablet, all i would be able to think about is how my current tablet was holding me back and how it's not the best and the other tablets are better and more expensive for a reason. so i was thinking of getting a cintiq pro 24. then i'd be able to fully devote myself to my digital art and feel like i'm at full capability and not constantly be thinking in the back of my head that i'm handicapping myself with a subpar tablet and not at full potential.
i'm a semi-NEET living with parents and got a minimum wage job making $7.25/hr in fast food the past 3 months to save this money up. am i a fucking retard or is this sensible?

I used a Wacom Intuos for years and I got an iPad Pro a couple months ago to replace my 7 year old iPad thinking that a screen tablet would suddenly make my drawing process so much better. Turns out that wasn’t the case and I still use my Wacom intuos, while using the iPad for small drawing exercises and casual browsing.

Point of this blog was that you don’t need to shell out 2000 wageslave bucks to draw digitally, even if you get a cheap shitty tablet once you get comfortable with it you’ll be able to draw what you want eventually.

Grinding getting used to the tablet is far more important than how expensive it is.

>> No.4391887
Quoted By: >>4391891

Are your lines not better on the screentablet? I can barely trace something with my intuos (have had it for years)

>> No.4391891

I’d say the main benefit to transitioning the screen would be if you’re the type who inks their line art since if have good line control you won’t even need a stabiliser to get smooth lines. Plus rotating the Canvas and flipping to see mistakes is so much better on the screen tablet.

My specific issue with the transition is that I’m so used to my tablet settings and the texture of the wacom tablet that I can’t draw in ‘muh style’ on it. i still have fun drawing In Procreate but at the moment it’s like an entirely different method for me, hence why OP should save his money and see how he fares on a cheaper option to test the waters since he can replace it with something similar later if he gets used to the tablet.

I think this board is good for beginners, but it forgets an important aspect to getting good at art. You've got to look at a ton of art. I spend my days browsing through art from all different time periods. I definitely prefer Modern and Contemporary painting, but i can get down with anything really.

Looking at different art can expand your style. Even if you just draw anime it can help. So much of the work that cubists and modernists did led to the styles you see in animation. I can't tell you how many times i've looked at a Picasso drawing and see lines and shapes that are in cartoons.

It's hard to see the 1-1 relationship between the art you consume and getting better, but it helps. So much of art is subconscious, and anything you draw is referencing something else that already exists. Even if you don't like my collection, i highly recommend you look at art by gallery credible artists instead of just "anime-illustrator-4069".

I have a folder with almost 800 jpgs in it if you want to look. it's pretty diverse. A lot of abstract-ish/expressive shit. 95% is by well-established artists that you would learn about in a history class, but i have some internet illustrators in there as well. Most of them have the artists name as the file name, but if not you can just reverse image search it. I got the idea to post my art folder after looking through the academic folder on the IC wiki.

so yeah. Here's the link:

If YOU guys have folders of Art stuff, post them. I would LOVE to look at that. As much as I want you guys to get out of your art echo-chamber, I have my own short-sightedness too.

Before starting this I want you to listen to my story. I come in here because I know this is the only community on the internet that will continuously be harsh enough to not allow myself become lazy or self delusional; because I know that, there are many among you with enough knowledge to tell me I'm doing wrong when I'm doing wrong. I am a man who has lost entirely everything in his life and that currently possesses nothing but ashes.
Lost my health, I'm nothing but a piece of garbage nobody will hire because of my age and chronic illnesses.
Lost my career. My job.
Lost the family member I most loved.
Then the person who kept me going, my lover, cucked me with one of my "friends"
As result of all of the above, I attempted to end my life 3 months ago.
Ever since then I've been sleeping most of the time. Eating sometimes close to nothing, while binging on others. Became addicted to clonazepam, which I get with forged prescriptions.
I have lost all and I have nothing else to lose but myself.
I want to come back. But cannot come back. I, instead, want to make it through art. Always hated my job in a way, was always jealous of artists earning about the same than me by just drawing. Always loved art myself, even educated myself a bit in it. Now that it's been 3 months and before the downward spiral of depression sinks me any deeper. I want to try.
Please help me to get good. If only by just being judges, if only by just being there and telling me I'm bad. I want to fight back in this, and for once in so many endless weeks start floating back into the surface.
I'll be keeping this thread on, to show you all my progress. Starting today, I'll fight myself to post at least 8 drawings a day. and then more. I'm delusional for believing I'll get good in a few months but at this point anything else seems delusional too, I have reached the bottom, any skill I try to pick up will also take months in developing so I want art to be my path to go.
