I've posted this on loomis before, but here's a toad monster I made a while back.

It has chemically-contracting tentacles instead of muscle and a shell it can move around and hide in. The powerful tail can be used to charge at opponents and impale them with the shell's spikes.

I started listening to some of Feng Zhu's videos and one that stood out to me was his video titled "Just Draw!". He gives some subjects to draw that students at his school do and so, I started this week trying to get 10 drawings a day, 20 minutes each and to get at least get 2-3 hours committed since I've been slacking off drawing. This week's subject: rocks.

Trying to develop my lineart. Looking to get that inkbrush sort of look, how am I doing? What can I do better? For any software specific tips, I'm using Clip Studio Paint.



Just saw vid related and the guy talks about not using pressure based size, but he's also just painting the whole video. Should I disable it for line art?

I just leave it on to try and force myself to learn to deal with it and have a conscious control of the pen pressure, but my stuff does look like shit so I don't know how I should go about it.



All this stuff depends on preference. When Sinix says stuff like "when learning to paint, throw away soft edged brushes" he's just talking out of his ass. I'm not gonna listen beyond that point. I guess the conventional advice from almost all artists between 1500-1920 were just stupid for suggesting that people keep their edges soft… He's making things up based on personal experience and a huge ignorance of the great diversity of approaches and techniques throughout art's long history. It's personal preference, do whatever works for you.

**Disclaimer, these are just redrawn manga excerpts I did, so don't take it for my actual skill.*"

I'd personally experiment with line width a bit more. I found it creates a more "pronounced" picture. How I do it is 2x base - outline, 1x base - depth differences (like say and arm before the stomach, hair before the face, etc), and 0.7-0.5x base - details, but that's just how I do it. Still I'd say try experimenting with lineweight a bit. Since lines are all you will be using, you want to convey as much as you can with them.




Good copies anon, I guess all there is really to keep in mind is how significant a small and subtle mark can be to the end result. Vilppu when drawing a feature on the face of a figure emphasized how amazing it is that quarter-centimeter mark could be enough to effectively suggest a mouth or a nose etc. and that can obviously translate to stylized linework.

Looking through the threads, I don't mean to be so direct but I don't think anyone here is up to par to be an art director.

Today I realized that I never want to be a commercial artist. Sure it's nice if you can make money drawing what you wanted to draw anyway, but being a whore who makes a living off of commissions is just another kind of wagecuckery. I don't think many people enjoy doing it.

Same, Clint Cearley mentions how "your relationship with art changes" when you become a commercial artist (https://vimeo.com/57349573); while he isn't explicitly negative about it, I'm not sure I like the idea of being wrung dry to express someone else's vision even if money's involved. I want the skill associated with a solid commercial artist, not the responsibility. I think I'd enjoy tutoring younger kids, that's the only "art job" I'd tolerate.



Dali was a hack as well. He was Gala's bitch and he used more talented painters like Isidoro Bea and Manuel Pujol Baladas to do the paintings for him.

Hey /loomis/, first time posting in here, not really a drawfag either, but I've been revisiting some old doodles I used to make and got back into the mood for some art.


I wanted to make some sort of large repository for tutorials, books and other resources to make it easier to drawfag, but I've noticed that, despite thinking I had many, they're quite lacking.

Could you help me in adding more stuff to my collection? I used to collect them from pretty much anywhere, but I'd like to see your own tricks of the trade.

P.S. I was really thinking of taking those videos from the Hub page and reposting them on the mega, just to make sure that they won't be taken down for bullshit reasons, got some more of them? I'm still uploading my stuff

Thanks, friend, I did and found plenty of nice stuff. But I don't think I'll integrate the two folders into one, rather I was wondering if you had any tutorials that you personally found helpful in whatever niche or general situation you found yourself in. Or even some made by yourself.


File: 24bfef33338b743⋯.jpg (182 KB, 600x860, 30:43, me on left.jpg)


Sorry fren, I made the folder itself and shoved everything I knew of into it-those are pretty much the only tutorials worth a darn I had come across in my travels at least up until the point that I forgot the password to the mega, freezing it in time forever



>at least up until the point that I forgot the password to the mega, freezing it in time forever

Then I'll also have to preserve it, to keep your hard work from going to waste.

Still, I'd be happy if people also contributed with their own stuff.

I used to do a lot of non-iso pixel art before but I kinda see it as silly and immature these days.

I'm still be interested in it if I were to apply it in a 2d game but I would use much more realistic palettes and draw less cartoony subjects than say, Mario or Sonic.

Hello drawfags. I just started seriously drawing about a week ago (I've taken art classes in high school years ago but they were mostly about drawing from reference and I haven't drawn since) and I've been making good progress with the fundamentals. Unfortunately, I ended up not drawing at all for two days and my muscle memory went to absolute shit and I pretty much spent all day rebuilding it again. It is because of this that I've decided that I will draw every day for now on for at least 4 hours a day MINIMUM.

With that being said though, what do you anons recommend that someone spend on drawing as per a daily basis? I know that the obvious answer is going to be "draw as much as possible/whenever you can" but i'm talking about if you just don't have the whole day to do it, or if you're sore from work/tired/sick etc. and you want to push yourself to at least draw enough to feel satisfied for the day.

tl;dr What is anon's BARE MINIMUM time spent drawing per day or even week?

Maybe. Sounds easy when you say like that, but it's still hell.



naw this guy is all shills. 16 hours is rediculous. people dont have the same attention span as this chink.




Feng is a total bullshit artist and while I respect the hustle as a business man, as artists we should be smarter than to take him too seriously.






man in this instance is the one profiting off of his drawings.




I think that your drawing is quite good and I appreciate what you have had to say about your own personal experiences
