<span class="quote">>>871Art isn't super hard. I'm personally best when i'm tracing things and warping it into a different image, because my mind's eye doesn't translate mental images into art very well. My pictures were either traced from some source or were methodically drawn with rulers or symmetrical, rather than just being free-handed or anything. You should try that, because it usually looks really good in the end, and it's good for beginners. I can't draw things without a crutch or cool tools, and i can't add color well which is why my best stuff is sketches, and that's the reason i gave up on art.</span>
<span class="quote">>>871>In seriousness though, I would like to draw but I can't make the effort to do so and reduce the perfect ideas in my mind to the utter failure of my ability to realise them with my hands.That's how you get good at it. That's how learning works. If you can't see the flaws with what you're drawing you get stuck drawing like Chris Chan or Tim Buckley forever. You're supposed to be able to find flaws with what you draw, so that the next drawing you can focus on that aspect and do better next time. It's a slow process. You can't really take shortcuts with it.Each time you draw something find something, usually something that really sticks out, and try to do better with that next time. Look up other people's techniques or advice if you have to. If you get stuck on a certain thing take a break from that for a while and go back with fresher eyes. Review your progress on improving certain things to see how you've improved and how you haven't. And of course show other people, because they'll notice flaws you don't.</span>

<span class="quote">>>881Recently I've seen a backlash against recommending Loomis to beginners. I reckon at least half of it is contrarianism, but I also find that manikin methods need a strong backing in fast/intuitive perspective, or else progress will be slow.

I wonder if there are any art books from socialist countries in general. Never seen one.
Bad news. Apparently my drunkard mom and stepdad stole military decorations of my ancestors for WW2 (picrelated one of them) and sold them behind my back for pennies. The whole set was worth at the very least $1500 but it seems those retards sold them for pennies instead. The medals alone were worth $450 but they sold the medals for $120…
I spent the last month barely touching the pen due to that. It's a very big loss to me, when my first love told me to wait for her and later cucked me, I didn't draw for a year and a half, doing nothing but sitting in my room and playing games to distract myself from pain. When my second girl left me, I stopped drawing for 3 months. Those awards were more important than any human to me, more important than anything else but I recover quicker. It's true that with time the pain becomes duller and you grow accustomed to life being a dissappointing pile of steaming shit. When my family hit the new low in 2014, mother lost job and we got into debts due to her stupidity and her boyfriend scamming her, I asked God for a sign that not all is lost, that it's not that bad. A month later I discovered those awards and the story behind them and they brought me joy whenever I thought of them. It's was extremely shameful for me to ask any supernatural forces at my low point because I am agnostic and not supernatural, yet I always remembered how I found them in one of the hardest moments of my life when I contemplated suicide a lot. I can't believe they are gone and I dream of beating my parents. Remember the stepdad's mother to which I brought gifts for the money I earned from commissions? When I told her that her son stole and sold valuable family relics worth $1500, she faked that she cared. After that she pretended that she is not at home and refused to open the door or even talk to me, she tried to hide at home and make me think nobody is there. When I refused to go home, she threatened to call the police. I feel empty now. I have more commissinos than I can handle but I barely have any will to draw. I see those awards in my dreams, whenever I wake up I remember that I lost them.
My grandmother was afraid my mom will sell them. I didn't believe that my mom would do this, and here I am now, a year didn't pass since grandma's death and my mother managed to steal them out of my room and sell them. I will have to break someone's teath and fingers. I regret that I let my mother and her useless husband move in my grandmother's apartments. My stepdad brought to the household less than $500 for the past 8 months, and my mother spent the last 7 years being unemployed. I was feeding them for 3 months out of my salary and I forgave them when they stole my collection of coins and sold it. This is how they repaid my generosity.
I will try to sell my apartments and move out of this shitty country. Stepdad's brother is a useless unemployed 49yo drunkard leeching off his 72yo mom and stealing money from her to buy himself booze. He is still living with his mom. I once said that I don't have Ukrainian and Russian friends because I don't like "our people". The faggot asked me why. Those subhumans just keep dissappointing me.
My neighbour borrowed 25$ for a week, then he "forgot" that he borrowed them at all and I had to incite scandals with him as well just to get my shit back. Everyone is trying to fuck me over. The government is corrupt, the neighbours are trying to steal from you and now I have to deal with rats in my house, the same rats I have been feeding myself despite being poor as hell, I spent money on them and what did I get? My parents sold family relics and stepdad's mom threatened me after all the gifts I bought her from my salary. Her own children and grandchild bought her less than I did but I guess blood means a lot more than your actions. It's okay to steal if the thief is your son, in the end she chose to ignore me completely. Several weeks passed since the event, I am not burning with hatred but I understood why vengeance is better served cold. I will redirect whatever income and strength I have at making those people's lives worse, if need be I will hire goons to break them. I desperately wanted to help the poor despite being one, but as the time went by I started hating the poor more and more. Now I see that many of the poor are simply too retarded and have no foresight, that's why they are poor. My parents didn't even have enough brains to sell the medals for half of their real price, fuck.
Just keep drawing with refs til you get better.
I'm sorry to hear my friend, did you confront the mom and stepdad over the medals? Not that they would be sympathetic but it would probably firm your resolve to move out, no? Also beating the shit out of anyone would feel good but probably wouldn't be a good idea - imagine having all your life's problems plus a criminal record or even jail time, not to mention the social repercussions of beating your parents. You'd just be punching into a bucket of shit, no need to get yourself dirty. As I said (and as you probably already know) aiming to put some distance between you and them might be the best course of action. Then you would have more independence to help them out or let them rot.
I did. It's a long story, way lnoger than what I wrote. Mother admitted her guilt but stepdad denies everything, I threatened to make him a cripple and I hate empty threats. Some people understand only violence, some people are born to be ruled, they are natural born slaves. I gave my parents full freedom and they poisoned their own lives and mine as well. My stepdad liked to brag how he put into hospital a dude that scammed his neighbours, so I will give him the taste of his own medicine. >a criminal record
It's easy to rob or hurt or kill somebody and get out of the country before this person even goes to the police. I can get out of Ukraine within 2 days, quick enough to avoid getting caught. I don't need to hurt them immediately, nice vengeance requires planning and time. People get killed for less than $1500, people get killed for lesser betrayals and for lesser insults, especially in 3rd world pisspoor countries like Ukraine, which is poorer than Turkey, Iran, China or Morocco. A couple of broken teeth is a lottery ticket in my view. If they stole $1500 from mafioso, they would be dead already. I had weeks to plan my vengeance, I can't love any woman even half as strongly as I loved the first one, and I don't experience strong attachment to anything but to the things I collect and the awards I inherited. Taking those things from me is worse than rape or stealing all my money and the apartment, they chose to spit in my face and take whatever dignity and self-esteem I had. I didn't draw because of some love for art, I was drawing to earn money. What for do I need money now if I love no one and I have nothing to cherish? There's only bitter taste of betrayal and hate. >the social repercussions of beating your parents
I am beyond those things. I told my mother I will sell her out if she ever commits a crime when I was less than 10. Punishment is only just in my view, but she will get none because legally there's no paper proving that those awards belonged exclusively to me and no proof that she stole them. There is no one to hurt them but me and I have nothing else valuable left. I don't need money or women but I needed those decorations. And I was denied even them, denied by the very people I fed and helped. It's not matter of money now, nothing can quench this thirst.
do what you must. I'm not going to moralize at you other than to tell you that it will probably be a waste of time, money and energy what would otherwise be better spent moving away and building a life that has other sources of meaning other than family heirlooms
i try not to do politics but my best performing drawing in terms of metrics was a radlib take piece and i every day i am tempted to repeat it
Chill bruh. You're a cool and talented guy. Just let it go. I've been there, being scorned in the past, and contemplating taking physical revenge on people, imagining how I could get away with it. You're right that some people will always try to take advantage wherever they can, but recognize your own mistakes that led you to being taken advantage of. Get out of that "cosmic justice" mindset, it's not going to do anything for you, it won't do anything for them, it's pointless. The only solution is to let them stop playing a role in your life and in your mind.
She is a big girl.
I was a bit busy starving. My mom is a lying drunkard, I had no internet for 25 days, no food for 14 and soon I may lose an apartment because the drunkards pawned it half a year ago. The retards tried to open bar, loaned money and used the only apartment we have as collateral. Everything was done behind my back. I spent 3 weeks without Internet and 2 weeks starving because my mother lied about paying for Internet, lied about bringing money for birthday and I couldn't ask the money for artwork because I had no Internet. The morning after my birthday a loan shark entered apartment while I was sleeping.
6 hours before the sharks entered my apartment I sketched Umberto D, an excellent 70 years old Italian movie depicting an elderly man and his dog in poverty. He loses his only home. Didn't expect it to be prophetic.
Quite a thick girl. >>58
I was wondering about your post until I got to the end. Interesting story, did you live in Italy? What did the Loan Shark do?
I am Ukrainian, people who leave Ukraine and come back later are either insane or work picking up fruits in Poland. I saw this movie because I consume lots of media and survive off my earnings as an artist.
The loan shark led me to his boss. They ended up loving me and complimented my intelligence non-stop, I befriended the bodyguard shark (an ex-convict with no finger on his left hand) and his gf who called me future millionaire and compared to Steve Jobs 5 minutes after I started talking to her. I forged the bodyguard shark's documents, he wanted to hide that doctor found marijuana in his piss. All in all a nice time.
Повезло братан, молодец.
Im doing drawings on /get/, cus hentai on booru piss people off here.
reposting here just cus.
>>62> hentai on booru
some random was pissed at me because in the last thread I made a hentai and posted it here.
Who??? Mind linking the posts, there's been some weirdo spamming threads and attacking posters at random.
Deepens on what it was since hentai on booru
isn't banned but a certain type is.
That guy's problem was that the character you drew is like 12 years old. So it wasn't hentai, it was loli (which is in fact banned on all boorus created by users on booru.org)
Glad you didn't kill your parents yet Ukrainian anon lol.

Are you starving for attention? Do you know what it means to "gas someone up?" People like that are nice to you because they want something from you. Stop getting played anon. Stop trusting untrustworthy people.
>I spent 3 weeks without Internet and 2 weeks starving because my mother lied about paying for Internet, lied about bringing money for birthday and I couldn't ask the money for artwork because I had no Internet.
What about internet cafes? What about libraries? Isn't there some other way for you to access the internet there? Untwine yourself from these people anon. Get a revenue stream. Go rent your own place or get out the country. Never talk to these people again.
>>69>Are you starving for attention?
Yes. If you are not a woman, not handsome and weren't rised in the Western hugbox, compliments are rare and the only types of compliments I get are the ones acknowledging intelligence. >People like that are nice to you because they want something from you
Of course they do, they need my compliance to sell the apartment. I wanted to forget for a brief moment what mom did and go to jurist together with her to avoid paying the debt but the morning I had this idea the loanshark boss let me listen his last audiotaped convo with mom. My mother promised me to give all the money we get minus debt after sale of apartment. Behind my back I heard how she asked the boss not to tell me the real value of the apartment + let her have "her" share. The boss offered to give me the rest of money and leave nothing to mom, he hates her because she was avoiding paying debt before and lied regularly. How the fuck am I supposed to dig myself out of this hole when the loansharks AND parents work against me? I just need some money from the apartment and then I leave the country. I can't even leave or sell shit because I need papers proving I am not draft dodger, we have forced coscription and the Russian war destroyed hopes for volunteer army.>What about internet cafes? What about libraries?
I don't have a phone, no cash and my laptop's energy battery is dead, thus it's impossible to use it without cable. The only way to contact friends and clients is the home stuck laptop.

love the aesthetic, third pic is just beautiful
I'm glad this board got made, even as esoteric as it'll inevitably be. The OC thread on /leftypol/ also ought to go in this board.
damn, one of the upsides of living in a shithole i gues.
I would need at least 4-5 of those kinds of commission prices to be able to afford rent and food.

That upside is capitalized on by a tiny minority of all workers and even then, most freelancers earn little and their purchasing power ain't great when you compare them to 1st worlders. You talk about greater costs of living but the prices/wages ratio aka purchasing power is way greater in developed countries. Also, 720 x 4 = $2880, that's big money no matter the country, even in Switzerland average wage is about $5000 a month. I seriously doubt you need that much for survival. Your apartment must be some good shit in well off neighborhood, mine is a mice, spider, centipede and cockroach infested nightmare with holes in the floor and with drunkard neighbour lying in front of my door. I am sure a thing like that won't cost several thousand dollars a month, probably with the exception of Singapore. It's just that in 1st world you have completely different standards for basic food and housing.
