Do you create art to participate in any communities or activities?
When I was a young weeb I used to draw RP characters and swap drawings in a faux economy system with other artists, and it was motivating and fun.

>do kids now enjoy the internet the way we did before?
My little sister's 11 and whenever I go home she's often playing Roblox with her friends.
Kinda reminds me of how I was on MMOs back in the day.
Of course nowadays they don't rely on in-game chat systems as much so she's only playing with kids she knows irl. while that experience is almost completely different from how I played online games, I guess the general sentiment seems like it's there.

>> No.5245746

your sister is just having fun with her irl friends. I'd wager that for her it wouldn't matter even if there were no such a thing as a real online multiplayer mode. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, mind you - as long as she stays the hell away from today's social media.

>nah, our age has nothing to do with it
I’d respectfully disagree. My Gen X uncle joined really early online hobby communities (around the mid 90s) and would tell me how he found them ‘lame’ and preferred hanging out with people irl.
It’s most likely a combination of age and social/mental sensibilities that made the early internet appealing to some.

Quoted By: >>5246058

Digital is better than traditional as a learning tool. Digital allows you to check your work for mistakes quicker and more conveniently than traditional. Undoing mistakes is also much faster than erasing, making it so that you fail more in a shorter amount of time, which leads to you getting better at drawing.
This is why you see so many zoomers who are so good at drawing.

>> No.5246058

The artist who did these learned mainly using trad though, and said she had to get over a different learning curve cause she (initially) wasn’t used to digital. It really depends on what you’re used to- I’ve seen people who can do trad work real easily and fumble when they switch to digital, and vice-versa. Like some other people said in this thread already, trad can make you plan out each line because you can’t just ctrl z it away. Both have their benefits though.

You're right. Defo view as an alternative.

I wash just thinking that a lot of the skills you learn through his book are things I did at school and college (not American so kind of like high school). I've just taken about 10 years off doing any art and found that a skim through KTD got my body and eyes straight back into the motions. Kind of like riding a bike.

At the same time, I guess the structure is extensive - Proko seems like a reasonable way to learn fundies without being boring also. I'm working through some of his free shit at the moment.

Crimson Daggers, maybe some discord servers. Filter the shit out of this board if you continue using it (personally filter everything porn, anime, style, loomis and sex life related, yes, that last one is needed) and limit to 30 mins a day.

Also don't be afraid to delve deeper into what your favorite art or artist excels at. Things like a focus on lighting, contrast, exaggerated, perspective, etc. and try to learn that. Basically don't get overwhelmed; pick a few resources for each area that look good to you after checking what's out there, and do analyze, try to understand, study, and draw the elements of products similar to what you aspire to create, not random things that have 0 use to you, or you WILL burn out.

I am a Sai user as well, if you want to mimic the look of traditional media, use textured brushes and layers. You may want to give the canvas some texture as well. The characteristic look of these comics is their slight graininess to the colors and lines, giving them that nice hand drawn look.

Try the "noise" texture that should come with sai. Either on your brush, color layer, or both. Keep it at a low opacity or else it will be too strong and look even more digital/artificial instead.

This will be hated, specially with the current meta of valuing technique a lot, but I have to ask this strange question.
I'm bad. Also old, so I'm having trouble learning. Yet I still feel like I have to draw and produce something for one in my life, or I'll just get crazy (I tried feeling the void with other common stuff but nothing's working).

That being said, I'm wondering what kind of drawing related project can be accomplished with a weak level. I'm still learning fundamentals but I care more about appeal and actually producing something now.
So I'm wondring if there's any particular medium that's better for me. For instance, something like animation is probably a big no considering how overwhelming it is.
(but even then, some people on Youtube hav million views with basic animation, it's just the content that matters)

I suppose what I'm trying to ask (being ESL doesn't help being clear either, sorry), is what can be accomplished with a weak-ish fundamentals level, and do you have any functional examples of work/artist that gathered a decent following despit having obvious flaws even for normies?

tl;dr : can you success while being technicaly bad, and what's a proof of that?
Picture related.

>> No.5242699

yes you can, technique isn't the driving force behind "success". as long as you make something relatable, something that makes someone feel something, it doesn't matter if it's poorly drawn, you'll still get a like and an audience after a while. you can do comics, vignettes, stuff like that that's primarily trying to tell a short story or capture a feeling rather than stand as an illustration

this is no excuse not to get better at fundies though. just because you're struggling with learning doesn't mean you're allowed to give up on it. onwards and upwards!

>> No.5242701

OPM only succeeded because Murata told ONE not to quit and that he would redraw it for him, it would have otherwise died off in obscurity. It's proof you can make a good story without great art, but not at all proof you can make something successful without at least some degree of artistic skill. Just grind your fundies, retard.

He's pretty well recommended but more for anatomy than figure drawing and the most useful thing he has is his simplifications of anatomy.

>any suggestions for a refillable fineliner pen then?
I used Rapidographs years ago but I got sick of the maintenance. Trying to draw solid flowing lines and they would be scratchy and broken up lines because of clogging and drying inside.

I had a lot better luck with Rotring Artpens. Its a fountain pen style nib but designed for drawing, in fine and extra fine. I have been using it for about 15 years on my comic book art and commissions, it can be refilled with cartridges that are the universal kind, they have the cartridges at Hobby Lobby. A lot easier to refill than the rapidographs, just pop out the empty cartridge, pop in the new one. I love this pen.

Otherwise I think Copic makes fineline pens that are refillable, but I never tried tham because Copic stuff gets expensive.

>> No.5244206
Quoted By: >>5244373

Outside of Rotring, new rapidographs are all over the place, and while older ones were better, you never know when they were cleaned up, if they were cleaned up at all. Imagine all that ink crust inside of it...

Koh I noors are pretty bad to be hones. I had one and it felt cheap as fuck.... Copic SPs are felt tip fineliners that can be refilled, but you have to use their parts and refills, and the quality of the ink is kinda crappy

Just get a 01, a 03 and a 05. You don't really need anything else if you're just drawing normal stuff.

And yes, you can do normal illustrations with it. People discouraging you from doing so are just bad https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbZN-74IxRk

not considering how things overlap or not spending any time seriously trying to study overlapping forms because "lol i know how things overlapping works, you just put one in front of the other, i'll do boxes instead"
there's a reason vilppu puts the spherical overlapping forms before any other form and there's a reason he calls it deceptively simple and insists that you practice it until you master it, it's the key to 3D drawing and if you think you've got it down then you probably don't yet
