A shopping mall would be a good place to start as you can observe from an elevated position. They might also have book shops that sell comics and books with imagery that are useful.

How do you get over this?
Every time I sit down, take out a piece of paper and get a pencil to start drawing, I feel a sudden vanishing of inspiration. It’s like my brain is so scared of trying to draw something complicated that it has to scale down all my ideas before I even have a real chance to fail with them.

Does anyone else feel a quasi mind blank right what they start to draw? No matter how vivid or full of ideas I am right before I start this always happens. Is this something you just slowly get rid of over time or is there a way that effectively cuts down on this phenomena quickly?

I could be wrong but I think it stems from some kind of larger anxiety related to art. Nothing seems to trigger it quite like being in front of a blank page. I’m really invested in wanting to become good at some point in the future. I feel discouraged by how far I am from doing even basic things like drawing a person from imagination well or being able to make two drawings of a character look the same. I also always feel like I’m not learning/practicing in the optimal way or worse yet, learning in a way that’s harmful to development. I don’t want to overblow this. It’s not like I’m completely paralyzed by fear. I do still draw a lot, just in a way that feels very restrained and difficult to slip into.

If anyone has dealt with this and figured out how to get over it, I’d genuinly appreaciate any real insight anyone has to offer.

Quoted By: >>4212058

If it's just fear of a blank page then just sketch on loose sheets of cheap paper, then you draw the sketch again and refine it. Art is not a start to finish process, instead it's made from reiteration which involves discarding things.
You should not be afraid of making a bad drawing because that bad drawing contains a good idea (or you wouldn't have tried to draw that thing in the first place), so you should take what is good in the bad drawing and draw it again until you have something you like. When you see a gap in your knowledge (like anatomy), you fill it in by studying. This is also how you develop a style and how you avoid the endless unhappy grind for fundies a lot of people get stuck in.

This seems like good advice. Thank you. I guess it's just really easy to get caught so up in what you're doing that you can get a kind of tunnel vision that's hard to break out of. Doing some quick free form exercises more often where you don't put too much thought sounds good.

>> No.4212182

One of my teachers in college used to talk about this. I never had any of this, because I was raised by an artist mom, so art supplies were as natural to me as a baseball or a toy car. But he said that the best way to deal with this - and it's all intimidation by the blank page - is to own the page. Draw a simple border around the edges, even if it's faint, and barely legible. Then you own the page, you staked it out as your territory. And, it can be incorporated into your mental process constructing the composition at the first stages, blocking out the page. Draw a border, then start establishing landmarks, then start blocking.

That, and stop stressing about failure. A failed drawing is nothing, and most artists will have more failures than success starting out. And will still have failures for the rest of their careers. Artists don't sit down and draw perfectly every time. We just see the successes, the failures get tossed out (or back in the old days, thrown on the fire).
It's like learning guitar - you're gonna play Stairway To Heaven really badly around 100 times, before it starts to sound good. Nobody cares about the 100 attempts, and you only show people how you play it well.

I started painting with acrylics like a week ago and have no previous experience with any trad media so I don't really know what am I doing. How do I blend the colors? How do I mix them? Do I do the sketch first and partially paint some features or do I paint completely over it and then make another sketch and paint on top of it too?

Please, do you know any artist that may have an useful tutorial or a book?

Thank you.

I think there are some good books in the pdf sticky. I’ve been thinking about branching into trad paints too so I’ll bump this thread.

>> No.4212128

Mixing them is the same as any paint, use a palette knife, or a brush and some water in a well on a plastic palette.

Blending is finding what works best for you - i used a crosshatching technique, or tried to glaze with matte medium, with varying degrees of success. (I personally do not care for acrylics at all) I would block in an area with the mid-tones, then work out the lights and darks, as block shapes, and then cross hatch color across the edges to blend.

As for constructing the painting - whatever works best for you. You can look for tutorials on YouTube, but like any painting medium, it's about putting the time in to find out what works best for you. Blending is probably the biggest reason most artists don't like acrylics, and turn to other mediums for work that requires a lot of it.

Been drawing traditionally for the last year and have decided to move on to digital, Ive decided to pick up Clip Studio Paint. Ive never used a tablet before (got a pretty big screenless) and Ive never used any art program like Photoshop or Krita, so Im coming into this completely new. Having tested out the tablet a little I actually dont mind drawing on a screenless tablet, but the amount of options in CSP is pretty daunting.

What video or resource goes over in the most succinct way how to use CSP? So far Ive found ctrl+paint for digital basics and a few others.

Everyone focuses on Mucha, but art nouveau had a lot of artists working in that genre - highly recommend diving deeper. I started with this book - great overall look at the whole era, including mucha. And, this book is really nice - great print quality, large format, the kind of book they just don't make anymore.

Burning out. Even if you could do that from the start, there are loads of other places where human error comes into play. There will be times where you'll lack a critical eye, be too stressed to think clearly about what you should be doing, and times where you'll turn your brain off.

Even if you work 10+ hours a day for a year, you will never get maximum efficiency out of it. Especially as a total beginner, you likely won't get any efficiency period after a certain point as the weight of your actions and expectations begin to overwhelm you.

you can use illu with a drawing tablet, it does have a pressure sensitive brush tool. its mainly used for digital lettering (brush-like caligraphy for example, check it out on youtube) and vector inking (vintage/tattoo-like inking style for clothing, merch or whatever). theres a pretty good smoothing setting so you can create bezier-like curves freehand, even if your hand is super shaky it will create a perfect curve. but in general the process is pretty unpleasant, a complicated artwork is very chaotic in terms of how many lines there are that you cand merge or expand correctly. also masking tool is pain in the ass, everyone i know still places fucking gray rectangles around the artboard to "mask" im not joking. it is the best software for flat design but fails a bit when it comes to freehand vectors mainly due to the specific interfaces/options that havent been updated for very long.

So,I've got a question...
I want to start posting my stuff,but I don't know much about blogs and where i should start.
I was suggested to start on Instagram,but it seems too normalfag,and doesn't convince me much.
So,any tips?What's the difference between the different socials?And other tips to start,while we're at it

>traction on Gab
Really? What do you draw?
I thought about joining some Mastodon federation and Gab, but it always had this "why bother?" aura to it.
And while I hate black people like everyone else, I wouldn't like to use a network where people mainly focus on talking about the subject they're not allowed to elsewhere (so, politics).

How's the ecosystem in your opinion?

I ended up deleting everything. Seems like no matter where I go my art looks out of place and I don't get to meet anyone. I become a follower or I get a follower and nobody ever says anything. I started getting bad vibes from it so I deleted.

If so Twitter and Insta are a nobrainer, get at least on these two.

Same situation, really. I'll just post my works on a personal site when I get around to make it. Not a fan of this whole social media "whoring" that usually leads to nowhere.

Wasted so much time on this inefficient shit.
only do it if you're looking to get burnt out and bored to death to the point your subconscious get PTSD and starts to invent shit to do other than drawing.

Just jump right away into perspective and skip that crap. it is a trojan that was made to waste your time.

Your line quality will get better by ACTUALLY drawing so that way you improve multiple areas of your art at once while having fun and working towards something.

You're fooling yourself if you think any pro did that crap

1. Youre not supposed to grind these, just make one-two pages per exercise and move on
2. >>4210597 yes and peter han got his knowledge from another mentor. the line control exercises can be found in "how to draw" by robertson as well. its just a popular exercise, peter didnt invent it

I'd share with you why you're wrong but I realized I can make big $$$ by compiling all the frustrations beginners go through by making a course on all the answers. So from now on I'm going to refrain from giving wisdom on this board.

Um, actually, he's not "just" brown luke skywalker. You see, he's part of a race of humans that are renowned for their combat capabilities, and he is the most powerful of them all as an SS+ tier fighter. His immense physical power was acquired by training each day every day for 1000 hours a day because he couldn't deal with the abuse of being raised by his evil MomBot-5000 that was locked on tiger mom behavior mode. He has an IQ of over 180 and also works as a weapons-tech researcher and space architect in his free time. And not once has he EVER been caught for galactic tax evasion, I just had to clear this up. Thank you for your time and goodbye.

Is copying an image sight sized a bad thing? I see some people denounce the practice but is it just a meme? Or is it something that is bad? If so,why?

Sight size

Pros: teaches you to see proportion very strictly, good for ateliers because there is no subjective opinion, good for getting rid of innacuracy in the drawing so you can focus on shading, can be a time saver when studying the exact proportions and shapes another artist has used

Cons: rigid, methodical, actively discourages appealing stylising or exaggerating certain qualities, autistically rigid and may kill love of drawing in some, causes serious dependency on reference/subject and atelier conditions, very slow, no room for impressionism.

Best use of Sight Size is to quickly level up your accuracy and sense of proportion, but combine it with as much free expression, quick sketching, imaginative work etc as possible or you will be an autistic printing machine dependent on reference.

It's better practice than tracing
Also works on real life things which is what the technique was developed for, harder to trace those you know
