Just gotta take your time absorbing a concept, trying it out, before gorging yourself on the rest of the material. Most of the time, art books teach you stuff that you're meant to practice over a long period of time. You don't just read it and then know it. You gotta try what they're saying and fuck up at it.

It's impossible, OP. Just accept your born condition as a painter and stick to your brushes and silly fruits.

Comic making is less about not relying on colors and more about using the language and format of comics to tell a story. And if you're not practiced in doing that it's going to come off awkward. Oh and also you need work incredibly fast and efficient.

What you're actually asking about is Line vs Form.
Comic artist use line to illustrate the outline of objects
form is full on illusion of 3d by using shading.
Comics and cartoons dont have time to shade everything, so they never practice form, so their paintings off.

I'm the depressed NEET meme guy that wants to become an artist.
I've never posted here, but I'm pretty much a stereotype of /ic/.

I've been doing ok: after 6 years of NEETdom, I've started drawing seriously 3 months ago. 2 weeks ago I also started an expensive drawing course after moving out (not in the US, so it's legit for what I'm paying), with no requirements, and now I have to hard force myself to ignore how good everyone else is in the course (except 3-4 people out of 16), because they've all been drawing for decades.

After moving out I've found myself living in an apartment at the 4th floor, and well...
The thought just hit me: "I've never been able to actually kill myself because I've never had the chance to do it quickly in one action -(I've always lived in a shitty countryside town with nothing in it)-. But now if I want I can just quit the game anytime I want: the window is right there."

I've never felt scared at the thought of death; is this what finding a purpose in life feels like? Because I don't want to die, I want to get better at drawing and I'm scared falling back into depression for petty reasons like "sucking dicks" because I'm still learning might get the best of me and push me to the edge.

Sorry for killing a thread for this, it's 5am here and I had no one to talk to.

>i am so sick and tired of people who have no real passion for art
Passion is not something one is born with it is something that is cultivated over a long time after discovering the interest, everyone has to start it somewhere and /ic/ is where they are SUPPOSED TO start.

I rather think it is you that needs to fuck off, go and find yourself forum or whatever community where everyone is "passionate about art" and already "good at it." That way you no longer have to be sick and tired of people that think differently from you and people here at /ic/ will no longer have to suffer your awful company anymore.

How about that it Anon? It is a win-win situation.

>Sketch with rough color pencil shading

Is smoothing / line-averaging a crux?

I like my lines with smoothing on but I can't help but feeling like its a cheat. But so is undo and I'm more than happy to use that so... yeah. What do you think?

pic unrelated

>> No.4219184

It's not so much that it's "cheating" as it is that smoothed linework looks rather artificial and cheap. Cheap in a tacky way, not cheap in a "cheating the system without earning it" way.

Perfectly smoothed linework gives very little room for you as the artist to inject your personality and quirks. It just ends up looking like a production rather than an artistic expression.

You should focus on line confidence rather than line accuracy. A little nervous scribbling is a lot more interesting than meticulously accurate, clean linework.

But to answer your question: No, it's not really cheating. It is a crutch, however if you use it to make up for your lack of line confidence.

When you have to work on video games or movies with tight deadlines, you don't waste time to make each technical drawing a piece of art. You have to do the job, get money and that's it. Also don't forget that most of those productions are not even showed to public. They are guidelines for a team.

That being said, know that you can draw, paint, take photos, record things, play music, or whatever else you want without it being "art". Different meaning for "art" exist but nowadays when someone talks about it, it is likely to be about the industry field.

12 years ago (I was 22 then) concept artists were already photobashing their work.
