I'm just dumping the artwork I was able to scrounge up from a dead website, and a few links from its users, from 2006, it's a real shame I could only find this much, as the entire site use to be for artists. Any of those interested in diving themselves, here's the site name. ( http://www.oddlotsirregulars.com/ )
You'll need the way back machine, have fun.

And this is it, aside from 64x64 profile pics that could be from anywhere, I took any pic on the site I could find, plus posted links that the users claim are their art, you could make the assumption that friends on deviant art pages may be other users, but I didn't take any art following that logic, only direct material from the site and claimed art posted by link.

There seems to be this dumb form of /ic/ logic that believes that women are prudish creatures that couldn’t possibly enjoy sex. But the moment women have any semblance of a sex drive it’s shunned or mocked. Not just by men but some women too.

western artists make a retarded point to never consume any medium they work on. Game developers don't play games, comic artists don't read comics, writers don't read writing, directors don't watch movies. Everyone is just networked in by sucking copius amounts of cock and their resume is essentially the equivalent of tenure for professors. Like attracts like, so if you're ultra left wing degenerate libtarf you are labeled a "good fit" and can get along with all the other fags in the industry.

Inversely people with soul are never supported and many of them insist on never doing things like fanart, 3d, porn etc. which means they are at a major disadvantage in the market, no one knows who they are and no one ever will unless they pull a kentaro miura-level autism that everyone will scroll past regardless in an over-saturated market.

Art doesn't come intuitively to me. I can't focus on anything productive for long enough to make real progress. My 1 year's improvement looks like most people's one months worth. Should I just give up?
I want to keep going, but at this point I have no reason to believe I'll ever make it to where I want to be.

Idk if I'm ADHD or whatever, but there's a few things that help me. It all basically boils down to distracting the "bored" side of my brain. If I just sit down and draw I want to immediately do something else.
>Listen to an audiobook
>Listen/Watch Youtube videos on second/split screen that don't need a lot of visual attention
>Listen/Watch to shows that don't need a lot of visual attention
>rarely music
For me, I also seem to have some auditory processing issues, where I need to focus on speech to process it or else my brain dumps out the info like it's just animal noises. So I have highly specific needs, like stuff I've watched before, books I've read before, etc. But at the same time it can't be something that I've watched/read recently or else I'd get bored quickly.
The idea is basically, half of my brain is focusing on the words, letting the other half work alone in peace without being constantly pestered for stimulus.
There's always option 2 as a procrastinator but it's not healthy. If you find something more important to do, you'll procrastinate that and draw instead, doing a cycle of progressing the "wrong thing".
If you don't have attention issues, then I don't know. Do some focused practice where you're trying to get better at something specific and just try to improve one thing every day.
Hope that helps.

>> No.4699887

Everything you wrote completely describes me, and those things you listed are what I do too whenever I get the most stuff done.
Still, I'm only getting 40 mins-2 hours each day and clearly it isn't enough (or I'm just retarded and can't learn to draw)

>> No.4699899

I'm sort of struggling too. I'm trying to draw every day but I can barely complete pictures because I keep getting up to do stuff, or take a break from being an introvert. I've been thinking of putting on movies or a whole anime series in the background so I'm more inclined to sit down and do it for larger spans of time.

I think you should have improved more with roughly an hour a day, if it's actually each day. You might need to read some art books on fundamentals or some kind of structured guide to point you forward. If you draw what you're comfortable with every day you won't improve.

>> No.4699904

I've been learning to draw for ~2 or 3 years but it's been on and off and I'm not sure how much of that is seriously attempting this but I think it's close to a year. It's not like I only do anime either, mostly it's studies of bodies and faces (which look worse than this). Still can't in the slightest draw from imagination, even a basic face or something. I've done a few books, but they're hard to get through too.
I guess I'm just not as passionate as I'd like to be, or I just can't grasp this at all.

>> No.4700060

Oh also I've been reading about ADHD for a while and wondering if I have it and those all sound like symptoms.
Even if I do have it though it's not that, cause tons of people with ADHD become good artists anyway and hyperfocus on drawing.

I'm having a lot of trouble with pose balancing, /ic/.
I have no trouble drawing the upper body, but the lower body feels uncanny no matter how much I draw them. Especially because of the feet position, and I can never get them right unless I redraw for 3rd for 5th time.
Is there a more concrete way to understand pose balancing? Most of the book I have read never really go indepth in them.

>> No.4699986

At the risk of spending energy uselessly by writing this post and having you ignore it, I will do so regardless in the hopes that it might help you.

In a spiritual/esoterical sense, the lower part of the body is what connects to the first chakra, which is the earth chakra, and deals with the physical/material realm. This means matter, force, and how you interact with the physical world around you and, ultimately, how you treat and move your very own physical body.

My recommendation is that you engage in any sort of physical activity and master it. Juggling, dancing, martial arts, weight lifting, anything physical will do, as long as you enjoy it. What I want for you is to feel the joy and happiness that comes with physical prowess. Learn how to balance your own body. Before you can learn how to FEEL your drawings, you need to FEEL your own body moving, how it balances, how it corrects naturally. Identify where it is not correcting naturally, and fix it, with effort, within.

I don’t know if that makes any sense to you, but either way I hope it helps you. Godspeed, anon.

It depends entirely on the tone/setting of each character, if you're going for gritty realism probably have some variety, if it's not then you can get more fantasy with it. 2B would look out of place in cod, but her design is fine for nier. But of course you can draw hot girls if you want.
