I’ve seen academic art have plenty of luck on Reddit it’s just the worst place to post “nsfw” art cause they’re all prudes and orbiters. Reddit is worse than twitch and literal pornstars stream on twitch.

Someone asked me to do a background for a character they drew. They sent me the reference material and I instantly saw what I had suspected. They traced the entire thing, down to small details. Is it okay to still do the background? Should I call them out? I don't really know how frowned upon this kind of thing is.

There was an online artist I really like who deleted all his profiles a few years ago and has been completely silent ever since. Over time I've learned to replicate his style almost perfectly and now I'm considering pretending to be him and staging a "comeback" to instantly net me a large number of his former followers. If I can pull this off successfully it would guarantee an instant steady patreon income without having to build up my own profile from scratch.

My big worry is that while my art looks the same as his, my methods are probably different and maybe a trained eye could tell the difference in the techniques used, like how experts are able to tell if traditional paintings are forgeries or not. Or if the artist was left handed or not, etc. How likely is this to be an issue with digital art where everyone basically uses the same brushes and colors?

I kind of agree with algen. The only reason to STUDY black and white is if you're trying to isolate values and work on that. You can absolutely do that, but when you're competent enough at matching values, it's advisable to include the dimension of color to your brushstrokes.

I waiting whole day or week to have some spare time and spent it for drawing and practicing, reading some books about anatomy, perspective or composition.

So, this time has finally come, I did everything that could disturb me from drawing. Drawing supplies are ready for use, sketchbook opened wide and lying on my table now, also my graphic tablet is ready in case if I don't want to draw in paper today.
I read 1 row of text, draw one fucking line, feeling so tired and extremely needed to do EVERYTHING EXCEPT DRAWING RIGHT FUCKING NOW!

What did you usually do before in your time off?
You're likely trying to move on from an addictive habit. The thing is all the things you did in the time leading up to whatever your addiction is trigger the same reward center. Clean your room before getting your fix and cleaning your room triggers a Pavlovian response.
Since you are doing something new, that doesn't have the reward dependence built out yet, your brain is throwing a tantrum for its scheduled dopamine kick and demanding you go do one of those things that you did leading up to your fix.

Okay, I can't really draw. I don't really try and don't exactly care. That being said, I know how to use photoshop a good amount. My question embarrassing question to you fuckers is, how do I learn to draw cum on anime characters without having to know how to actually draw? I've been editing some of good hentai pics for awhile with very small edits like adding camel toe, nipples poking through a shirt, or making a composite of my favorite elements of an image with pre-made edits (like pics that are mostly the same but the character will have different expressions, have a dick in them in some, cum in the final, etc). I'm a coomer with a cum fetish and I think there would be a good amount of pics that would make me rock hard if they had cum covering their faces and body but i'm tired of requesting those kind of edits on /h/ because it's slow as fuck, I wanna do it myself without having to fully learn to draw. Pic related isn't something i've done, it just made me think about this harder and deciding to see if you artist fucks could help me

Not finished yet..but the latest work i'm working on now

Finding a publisher is hard if you don't have at least some pictures and the complete text. It's pretty much a bet you make. You invest time and effort in the hope someone will be interested. In my case it ended up being an old client who new a publisher who recommended me. Once i got the contract i got 3000 euros of advance on copyright to finish the book. Once it sells enough in benefit so that the publisher gets back his 3000, then i'll get annual copyright for every next sales. The good think about copyright is that it's taxed differently then contract work...at least where i live.

As for living with it. It should be possible...especially since children books are one of the most profitable books. Once a baby is born...family, friends etc...want to gift you something. And children books are always welcome. But it depends on the market. Luxembourg being tiny, i hope that it will make enough profit to be translated in french and german so that it can get exported.

As of now i mostly do all kinds of work. Theater backround illustration, mood books for films, illustration for books, cover, magasine etc,table games...

Luxembourg is peculiar since...the market is tiny, but in the same time...once you're known in the cultural circle you'll get regular work.

Well, if you really want to bring forth your ideas through art, I think it's matter of powering through the process of making stuff. Maybe you dislike how messy the inital stages are, maybe the outcome doesn't match your expections, hell, you can even be a total wiz and just laydown strokes and color like nothing, but really, those are things that most artists, even pros in some instances, go through. Eventually as you create and produce pieces that you feel content with, you start to appreciate the journey you went through in making that idea a reality.

Of course, that's just my two cents.

>> No.4210049

Maybe try out other avenues like sculpting and 3D, if it's just about your ideas coming to life there is more than just drawing.

One is a medium. The other is a genre. I don't compare them.

Having said that, D&D has had a huge influence on anime and manga, so there is a connection.

youre an idiot. you can't compare animation which is for time and cost saving to an illustration book full of still simages.

The painted background art is a more apt comparison.

Just recently getting into drawing again, bought a small Wacom tablet. Started out simply tracing, but have moved over to drawing side by side. Is this a good way to learn? Don't really feel confident enough in my own abilities to do independent drawing. Even though I have tried

Side by side and tracing are really bad for learning, read the sticky

Side by side drawing IE; copying reference is what 90% of you ngmi crabs do though.

Get good at proportions. Compare ratios on line lengths and approximate angles between the original and yours. Use a base length or angle to compare against.

First: I'm not a crab or a ngmi
Second: side by side isn't just copying references it's another name for sight size, it doesn't help you develop a good eye for propositions
Third: post your work, pic related is mine, I'm a beg but I don't go around calling everyone a crab like you

Does anyone know how to make the current brush switch between a preset size like 20px>50px as example? For PS
