I prefer a program I've had forever, called Silo. It's a box modeller that I prefer the interface and toolbox of. It's dev history is wonky as hell, but it still works so I use it - Blender's tools are close, though - when Silo finally stops working, I'll switch to it.

Yeah, I feel you. It's not the drawing itself, but work. I hate doing work. I'm so against it.

I went into a trade as a result. Simply because if I'm going to feel like I'm just doing work, then I'll just do work.

I've come to gain more social skills, confidence, competence, and work ethic.

If art ever feels like a chore I think it helps to step away from clout chasing or doing work to make yourself "marketable" and make some art for yourself. It doesn't have to be technically good, it just has to be fun and something that you want to make yourself. Whenever I start to feel weighed down with trying to impress people on social media I do some drawings of ocs that only I care about. The drawings usually get hardly any attention on Twitter, but it's kind of a liberating feeling because I know those drawings are for me and me alone, and it helps make art fun for me again.

I rendered a red box under green light and the result is a black box. Is this how I would have to paint red object under green light? It looks really weird so thats why im asking.

Also PLEASE does anyone have any tutorials on color theory, how to pick colors in shadow and light etc? I only see Gurney's book posted here and im too beg for it. Marco Bucci's video are too theoretical, I need real a walkthrough for a painting with human figures, i tried but failed at applying his colored spheres tutorials to painting people. It can be anything, including paid courses. Theres so many resources on construction here but nothing about actual painting and colors, im feeling rly hopeless here.

Thats more or less how it works.
In real life objects and lights will never be this pure. The green light would have some color leakage and the pigmentation of the cube would have some flaws.
In 3d you can have mathematically perfect colors which is why it works this well.
Here is a real world example I found

Also this is probably the best primer for color theory out there:

The best way to learn color theory is to paint from life because you mix on the pallet and hold what you mixed up to see if it matches what you're observing. inb4 MUH BOOKS/TUTS

Painting is not ray tracing.


Painting is not ray tracing.

You are painting the illusion of reality. You may or may not need to add green to an apple if it's near a field of grass. Or, at best, mix some greens into the colors of the apple to family it in.

You're approaching this all wrong. Stop trying to reproduce what a computer is doing, and train your eyes and brain to process what you see onto the page.

>> No.4212247 [DELETED]

learn to read, im not trying to reproduce anything a computer does and i didnt state such thing anywhere. "mix some greens into the colors of the apple" ok why dont you show me what is the resulting color and how you would apply it? because everyone keeps telling me "just paint", "just observe" - do you say the same crap to people who dont understand values or construction? i truly dont know where this whole weird treatment of subject of color on this board comes from, its like nobody here understands it but doesnt want to admit it. you can find tons of book that hold your hand through constructing a human figure but the second i ask for the same about choosing colors im told im asking for shortcuts and i just need to observe more. maybe you all managed to understand how to pick the colors from observing, im stupid and cannot do it and im asking for detailed explanation.

(except for these 2 anons who actually posted helpful links thank you)

>tutorials (shortcuts)
no i dont want shortcuts, i didnt ask for any shortcuts, i asked for -any- resources, also including full courses. or are resources "shortcuts" to you? okay lets just stop recommending any books or courses to anyone here, they should just OBSERVE right
>but Bucci is "too theoretical" for you?
i didnt say bucci is too theoretical i said he lacks practical examples, i understand color theory but i need practice and he doesnt offer enough of it. painting 2 red spheres is not enough

Forget exactly which podcast it was, but heard Marshall emphasizing "bad practice" in one of the recent Proko podcasts, and how it can actually make you get worse at drawing cause you need to forget the bad habits, and relearn new ones.

If this is true, then the "just draw" theory is completely false and you actually need to be thinking each time when you draw or you risk the chances of actually becoming worse.

It's true that you can practice in a way that's harmful but it's never as irreversible or hard to change as most people worry.

Art books are not dissimilar to math textbooks
These books tech you the 1+1=2
Just like in mathematics, the bulk of your time is not spent reading paragraphs, but solving problems. Your training should be using these basic tools during practice and building up on them, slowly learning how to do them properly and learning new things.
If a book tells you the 1 additions are 1,2,3, 4, 5,6,7... and multiplying adds the first number to itself the amount of times in the second, you should be able to figure out on your own that 2*3=6
Hope this makes sense
Personally I prioritized practicing 3d, and attempting to draw things I wanted to draw ( hot chicks). Keep in mind that you should make decisions based on what gives a better end product, and try to understand why it is so.
I will post my work on /ic/ the day a cut I keyed makes it onto sakugabooru
Depends on what you do and who you work for. Some pay hourly, some pay per product, pay range varies wildly depending on your skill and occupation.
If you are self employed it's all depends on how you can market yourself. If you work under a studio or freelance your pay depends on what studio you work for and what kind of job. All the studios I know as far as i know pay decent to good. Even newcomers doing clean up douga, and inbetweens, don't get less than min wage.
Maybe I've just been lucky, but if a studio offers you less than 600 a month you might want to turn and run. I don't think you can even rent a trashbin with that much.

If I "like art" and constantly think about what I want to draw, why do I fucking hate art so much?
I procrastinate even on tiny projects more than I did my fucking schoolwork. Last night I decided I was going to do the basic animation practice of doing a bouncing ball. I spent 20 minutes fucking around with Krita to get a brush setting I liked, then proceeded to spend FIVE HOURS watching nature documentaries. I stopped at 3 AM. I got so far into my procrastination that I deluded myself into thinking I was going to start a new project, a fantastical web of life, because I grew fascinated how everything evolved to become so dependent and connected with everything else.

I'm a hard worker, I have work in a few hours and have proven myself our most dedicated and hardworking employee consistently. But the second it comes to drawing, I regress back to my highschool days of "I'll do it at this time, I'll do it after dinner, I can't do it now, I'm too tired, I'll do it after work tomorrow, I can't do it now, I'm tired from work, I'll do it at this time after I've relaxed"

To be honest I'm not even sure why I'm making this thread. I've seen all the videos, and the only thing anyone ever says is "just start, do something small and just start, it's a billion times easier to start with a line on a page than a blank one" I guess it's in an attempt to see if anyone has anything new to add this time

i'm not one to jump to conclusions but the only one i can reach at the moment is that you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about

>> No.4212094

it's probably because you are now a slave to your ideal, your ideal is yourself drawing all the time, meaningfully, having absolute joy. Now this ideal is judging you, forcing you to draw so that you are like him and the natural response to this lack of power, over this authority, is to procrastinate. Maybe the ideal is more powerful than you, but you get to choose when you draw, and that's how you manifest your own power over your ideal. You don't like this situation and you are fighting the ideal, but at the end of the day your ideal is still what you wish to become, you will be in pain because you don't get to be like the ideal.

You will never reach that ideal so it's better to throw it away since it's clearly not doing anything for you.

It's way better to not compare to an ideal, or anyone else because you will get into the defensive state of procrastination. Understand that you are drawing because you want to, it is not in control of you and you have a life other than drawing. You draw out of pure free will and you want that, that's why you come here asking for help.

You draw for 1 - 5 minutes and if you feel like that's as much as you are willing to go you leave it there, now next time ask yourself- Can I draw even longer without experiencing dread? If not just stay there getting stronger until you can answer yes, but stay in the fight of not going lower. When you are ready you push yourself another minute, 6 minutes, and the next day you push yourself another minute. If you did this for months and years you would reach a massive amount of daily drawing time. And you are extending that time based on your pure will, not based on the judgement of a tyrant self.

Art Is an expression of self. If you cannot create it is because you do not know yourself. It can't exist in a vacuum, fix your life first.

>> No.4214322

you're working too hard and don't know how and/or don't care about making money from art right now. Not having energy to draw or do fucking anything at all is a real REAL problem. You wouldn't be watching stupid nature documentaries if you were or NEET or only worked part time. Things won't change for a long time until you want to quit or have enough money to do whatever you want.

I love how half of this board is all about "art is expression, art is deep, art is a reflection of the self", but 90% of the drawings are anime booty.

Prostitutes should start doing the same.

>> No.4211387

I'm european, so Starthmore is hard to find and I didn't tried it. But I suppose is good because in the usa is the standard for comics. In my experience the best is Canson Bristol (the 200 g/m2 one), but right now I use Canson Bristol XL. It's cheap and if I want I can print cyan lines on it without stressing the printer.

>> No.4211989

I've found it worthwhile to spend the money on rolls of drawing paper, or sheets of illustration board or watercolor paper for wet media (rather than bound sketchpads). I like cutting to size and stretching my papers.

Gatorboard makes a good rigid backing panel

Cover of the Rondo of Blood SNES remake by Akihiro Yamada (same artist from >>4211373).

Fun fact, Konami changed Richter's design when they discovered the artist directly based his original design on Ryu from SF2.
That's why Ayami Kojima redesigned Richter again in subsequent appearances.
