What do you think of this, /ic/? Is a professional artist seen as a respectable man/profession in a woman’s eyes?

Are you alright to have your wife be the breadwinner while you focus on your drawings?

I'm a 30yo professional, good looking, I earn six figures and I'm a virgin. I have zero social skills because I was always being creative and ambitious in my career goals. No time for anything but improving.

If I were to live my life all over again, I would take over my father's business instead of wasting more than a decade on art. It's a great job and all but it's not worth being this lonely.

I tried to build up a social circle over the last four years but I'm no better off than before. This life of mine is not worth living. I suggest everyone, who's trying to become a pro, to not do it.

Comics are fine if you don’t try to join the big 2 (Marvel and DC). The writer and artist get to express themselves with the editor coming in only to tell them storytelling plot holes and nothing else. Unlike the big 2 where you have to play roulette if you wanna stay on the book, like which character are you gonna kill, what new character are you gonna pull in, and what big controversial twist will bring in new angry readers. pic related is a non big 2 comic that is rumored to getting a live action adaptation

It’s a tonal thing to help train your ability to paint, it takes much less time to render with than vine charcoal and rough paper (you don’t need to blend), provides both soft and crisp edges, trains your hand dexterity to be very extremely sensitive, uses smooth newsprint not just because it’s the best paper for the method but because it’s very cheap and fragile (fragile to train you to think before you act and ruin the paper, cheap materials because art materials are generally expensive) working in greyscale as to teach you your values(which is the most important part to learning color), and it’s very expressive pencil. In short it’s to teach you to paint while saving a ton of money.

Beside pinterest and google, where do you guys go to get your poses/portrait reference?
Back then on twitter I saw someone posted a site that contain reference of people around the world etc, I really like it a lot because the poses were everyday stuffs which helped me to draw for my comic a lot, but I lost it now and I couldn't find it. Model poses are too perfect and elegant, the are unnatural and they didn't really help after I've done them thousands of time.

>It's shape is so fucking odd and weird you cant say whether its leaning or not it's actually meant to lean.
Don't compare the front wheel to the back wheel, or the back of the bike. Compare it to the front end. The wheel doesn't even fit within the fairing/frame correctly. Cut off the back end of the bike and the perspective is still fucked. Try picturing and imaginary set of forks on that wheel to the handlebars, it can't be done without being broken.

>> No.4375386

>you cant say whether its leaning or not it's actually meant to lean
The bike is not leaning or only leaning a few degrees, based on the shape of the rear wheel. It's not leaning enough to justify what he did with the front wheel.
>That's assuming the handlebars are straight
That's not the issue. The artist is clearly drawing the front wheel rotated towards the right. The long and short axis of the ellipse are wrong, which is what gives the wheel a crooked look.

>> No.4375388

>The long and short axis of the ellipse are wrong, which is what gives the wheel a crooked look.
If this is how you say the OP shows too much of the back side of the front wheel you are spot on.

Wrapping lines are volumetric contours
You don’t know how to deconstruct an image because you’ve never studied how to build one in the first place. He has simplified the “outline” of the body to be extremely simple, if he was literally outlining the form there would be tons of bumps and detail.

If you want to prove why gesture isn’t worth doing then please post artists who discourage against gesture.

>> No.4374897

Actions speak louder than words. Especially the actions of working artists vs the words of art teachers.
I think drawing simple outlines is great. Draw simple outlines all day long, it's a good way to start a drawing. But art teachers like Proko and Vilppu EXPLICITLY tell you not to draw outlines, they say outlines are not gestures, gestures are something different. And I agree with them, the weird noodly stick figures they draw are not outlines.
So again, show me a video of a working artist who draws a gesture. In the Lee video I posted a screenshot of he clearly starts with an outline and not a gesture, so as far as I can tell I've presented the most evidence so far.
