How do you make money? (hard mode : no porn)
This is a very generic question but I love so many aspects of drawing and animation, I have to chose one (online, for reasons). And I'm not sure what fields are not too crowded when you're only, and probably will ever be, only average (I don't even aspire to superb technique, I myself like simpler stuff and perosnality rather than awesome technique even if I can appreciate it).

Webcomics? (Webtoon? How do they even pay?)
Animation? (is 2D still valid? Or is it just my childhood and you have to do 3D now to get work)
And what niches are good to look into?

Also, use this thread to talk about any related stuff and business in general if you want, might as well.

>> No.5253431

Animation is definitely a standout on twitter, but personally I'm not too sure if it's worth the effort to turn into a business as opposed to plain 2D art. I will say though, animation is a REALLY useful tool for improving your 2D in general. As for 3D, not too knowledgeable about it besides it being easier in some ways I think? I dunno.

>And what niches are good to look into?
Honestly anything you're interested in would make a good niche to specialize in. It helps if it's something really specific (such as art for an obscure game or something) as it's easier to be a big fish in a small pond. But in general, please, for your own sake, only specialize in something if you enjoy it.

In general for business, consistent output and goodwill are key. Think of McDonalds or Burger King what you will, but when you walk into those establishments, you know exactly what to expect when you order something.

Now do you have the "you need to draw realism before you can draw anime" meme?

>> No.5253456

in the last 6 months I have done

-Album release artworks
-Logo for small business
-Typography and other designs for a clothing label
-Tattoo Design

the best advice I ever got was to strengthen connections to communities and niches that you are already interested in or have some kind of connection to (aside from art related stuff)
That can be as general as science or as specific as competetive yoyoing - those people that share your passions are your potential clients maybe they have projects that you would never have even thought of but if youre known in those circles then people will come to you because personal reccomendation always trumps anonymous online portfolios.

Expand your social circles, hell maybe take up a new hobby but always, always introduce yourself as someone who does creative stuff even if it isnt your main income.

I managed to understand how to draw the torso pretty adequately, but the limbs are a problem. The muscles are hard to understand, and every book just has a bunch of ball forms attached to the bones that don't look like how it looks in real life even for bodybuilders. Also Proko just throws a fuckton of medical terms like nigga what the fuck are you teaching?

That book? Or "how to draw (x)" books in general?
Some of the how to draw (x) books are good, but theyre better described as "how I render (x)".
The most valuable ones tell you how to generate ideas for your chosen topic or how to use a specific medium to achieve certain effects. I just got a book about how to draw ghosts and vampires and its pretty decent for what it is. Had a some trad tutorials on how to handle smoke, transparent objects and paint gore.

Think you ability to paint forms is promising. As the other anon said it looks like the drawing skills need more work compared. Like the proportions are way off, not sure if its intentional though.

Honestly on a personal note I quite like this painting, just because I'm big into more surreal stuff and this fits the bill. Think you should grind the fundamentals more though.

Why You Should Copy Anime:

**Strive for quantity AND quality.**

Anime Studying:
>Copy anime references exactly and draw them from memory. Use illustrations, screenshots, anime figures, 3D models, etc.
>Don’t copy recklessly. Use construction, color theory, and other fundamental concepts to rehearse a drawing process that you can later easily manipulate for original artwork.
>Post all of your anime studies. Post even when you’re told not to. Create an art community that actually draws and improves together instead of just talking about it.
>Number your attempts and link to your previous posts.
>Critiquers should lead by example by posting their studies.

General Anime Style Discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.
>Drawing methods, study habits, resources, tutorials, tools, software, etc
>Be specific and try to post a sample of your study attempts before asking for help.

**Draw copies from good anime styled references to mindfully up our mileage, internalize appealing aesthetics, and learn from each other’s processes and knowledge.**

Kusotori could do with some anatomy practice if she really wanted to elevate to Priestess levels but she has a good grasp on how she wants it to look aesthetically and probably drew a fair bit on her own time. Probably too busy now, though. Wish Sui-chan still had time to draw again.

Fucking this.
There are things that can take you months to figure out on your own that can be taught to you in a few minutes. Knowledge of techniques, tools, and your own weaknesses can be gained with practice but the fastest results will always come from instruction. There are people incapable of seeing their own mistakes so they will endlessly go in circles if left on their own.

>There’s people who have practiced for years and never made it out of /beg/.
>I’m not some doomer who thinks only a few people blessed with talent can draw. But it’s also obvious to me that there are effective and ineffective ways of practicing.
It's worth remembering there are people who never learn anything. Some are just born incapable of developing empathy, self-reflection, self-control, motor skills, patience, an interest in the world, imagination, or all of those combined. They're the people who end up as handicapped children or criminals at worst, profoundly unremarkable drones at best.

Thanks to modern wonders like nutrient-depleted soil, chemicals, artificial hormones, drugs, dystopian cities, lack of nature, and especially the lack of evolutionary culling (all women get to breed at will thanks to fuck culture and artificial insemination, all kids get to live no matter how unsuited for life), you can expect more and more of these types and more whining and moaning when they turn out to be incapable of even the most basic actions that the strong, normal people of the past performed easily.

And in before "people in the past died at 40". No they didn't. Plenty of people lived to 100 with no pharmaceuticals or surgery. The average life expectancy of ~40 comes about because half of kids died either in childbirth or before adulthood. Before agriculture, there were periods when people were significantly taller than now, with larger brains.

I'm not. You can have modern comforts while avoiding most of the trash.

>> No.5253696

The answer is simple:
their advice worked for them. They practiced art regularly, and they improved at enough of a rate to do it for a living.

But something tells me many of the people here who claim to be stuck are either being impatient, or they just don't spend much time practicing.

If you are one of those people who draws for 10 years and is still total crap, either you really didn't draw consistently, or you're just autistic and nothing will help you.

>> No.5253700

I think this is why most people can't draw despite practicing for a long time.

Most people probably just draw randomly, never structure their own practice, will not draw for weeks at a time, and even worse, they will draw something kinda ok or cute, and go "this is my style" and never practice anything else besides their own little doodles.
