okay so what do you take the most out of this experience, besides drawing erryday?
I like when good artist have bad days or just submit sketches, its far more representative of their level then when you follow someone for example on tumbler and only see the best of their work.

i was already drawing every day before this so what i'm taking away from it is being able to see other people's studies. like you said good artists only ever post their best so it's cool to see everyone's failures

Working part-time and studying a masters, I know there are people here that probably have even less time and draw more but when Sunday swings around I just run out of fucks. I keep trying to change that but the eliminations prove it's a worthless battle.
I love LAS and I'm getting really attached to the submissions of certain participants but I just lose every two weeks without fail.

>>2390733
Prove it to us then
>>
>>2390721
If your sunday really is fully occupied by some other project and every minute spent elsewhere could cost you, step back. Take a break from drawing. Get you're shit finished. We'll see you in 3 months when you can commit to drawing.

Now, if you could sacrifice a tv show or some video game time but don't want to, re-evaluate the role of art in your life.
>>
>>2390753
Draw more on saturday, split it up and submit half of it just as LAS rolls over into sunday. It's cheating the system, but it's a bad system so who gives a shit.

what should we do, require people to post a video of them drawing with that day's newspaper?
>>
>>2390756
Why stay in the contest faking posts?

I can draw a lot in one day and skip one week or more. I can cheat the system but, I'll be cheating my progress. Why to stay in LAS this way?
>>
>>2390764
This, you can still watch the submissions and visit the threads if you enjoy the community part of it.
Why cheat.
>>
>>2390754
>We'll see you in 3 months when you can commit to drawing.
That's a nice idea and full of hope, that might just have to be the end result here. I hope LAS is still so strong in a few months time.

>>2390756
I'll try this for now, I guess.
>>
>>2390764
Not him, but it's not cheating if you draw every day going by the GMT time zone. 00:00 GMT is 7p here, so I'd be perfectly justified drawing Saturday from 6:30p to 7p, submitting that, then continuing for more time in order to join Team Forza at 7:30p. In theory I wouldn't have to draw again until Monday at 6:30p, skipping my Sunday entirely. The end result is still drawing for at least half an hour per 24 hour cycle (in GMT) even if the cycle isn't aligned with your local timezone or your personal sleep schedule.
>>
>>2390748
Why?
>>
JUST DRAW

Because there is no vacation mode and LAS needs internet connection

Guys, when did drawing click for you? What made it click? When did you feel "oh damn I'm having fun here creating the stuff I wanted to do, it's all going smoothly wow I could draw all day"?

I keep studying and drawing but I still don't feel as comfortable as I'd like it to be. If I compare to when I'd draw as a kid, back then I had fun and it never felt stressful.

Was it a specific book, study program, etc? Or did you wake up one day with a new fresh and exciting outlook all of a sudden? I feel like, while fundamentals and all that stuff matter a lot, in the end my current perspective and outlook on art matter as much if not more.
>>

make a blog if you want to blog about your life.

>>2391004
I went to class one day and said "lemme draw a picture instead of learning about body part shapes " and I could actually sorta depict what I was trying to

If you're not finding it fun or whatever, try to apply what you've been studying in a picture or whatever you're aiming to use your art for. I think seeing your work in a complete or even semi complete manner will make you feel better or at least let you see what you're currently capable of. Also lets you grasp the bigger picture of what you're studying.
>>
>>2391004
If it makes you feel any better, I struggle with this everyday. I keep wondering why it seems like I'm forcing drawing so much, instead of having fun with it, like you say, like when I was a kid. The other day I managed to have a bit of fun drawing from imagination, i just got in bed with my sketchbook and drew stuff. The next morning I was back at the struggle. I have no idea why this happens, but it's the reason why drawing is so hard for me right now, if I could sit down and have fun drawing my ideas, I'm pretty sure I would be able to quit any other form of entertainment, make it professionally and use all the time I have on this earth to draw as much as I can, but alas, it doesn't seem to work that way for now. I don't know anon, just keep drawing, build a habit, try to draw from imagination everyday, hopefully it clicks for you and me aswell.

>Guys, when did drawing click for you? What made it click? When did you feel "oh damn I'm having fun here creating the stuff I wanted to do, it's all going smoothly wow I could draw all day"?
I've only just started feeling like this recently, and I started a year and a half ago. I wouldn't say that it all "clicks", but things really are starting to come together. I don't hate everything I draw anymore. It's an exciting feeling.

The main thing is that I don't feel lost anymore. I know how to learn now, and am more aware of what I need to improve on and what's necessary for me to do that. I can say that I'm now confident enough to draw pretty much anything.

>If I compare to when I'd draw as a kid, back then I had fun and it never felt stressful.
That's because you weren't seriously trying to git gud. Now it's more of a job. Also kids get inspired super easily.

>Was it a specific book, study program, etc? Or did you wake up one day with a new fresh and exciting outlook all of a sudden?
For me it was pretty much pure mileage improving my skill and building confidence over time. That and I'm now determined to become a comic artist so I'm working hard to reach that goal.

Make sure to just sketch shit for fun occasionally where you don't stress out about the quality. Come up with some characters and stories for fun. Remember why you love art in the first place. Look at work from your fave artists, watch movies, read books, listen to music, or go outside, whatever. Be inspired like you were as a kid.

I lost my token because I had to stay late at work. In 2 weeks I will be starting a new job that has a lot more down time and more regular hours so I can do way more drawing. I'm in it for the long haul

gabe's commissions are realistically priced and he gets a lot of buyers. at the rate he's able to pump them out, it's not hard to believe that he could live off of what he draws, though i'm not sure how much free time he has

thanks family. i have been mentioned in these threads once before, and i had a nice conversation about sheep with someone afterwards. i'm sure all of your art is also wonderful!! also there are 8 zeroes.

Lava, where can I find that thing you posted last thread with the squares on the days people have or haven't posted on? I've looked for it on the site and can't find it, idk if I'm being dumb or if it's not linked on the main page yet.

Also it might just be down to colourblindness but I find it a bit hard to see the difference between entries I've seen or haven't. Like how one is grey numbers the other is blue, I feel like making the difference more obvious would be cool.

>>2390730
Yeah, sorry, initially i wanted it to be just a quick sketch (like poon and anon313 do), but it just dragged on and on. Yesterday i rendered the bow on the hat, changed the hind leg of the rat from rough brush stroke to a proper leg with reflected light and rendered the tree limb some more, adding glowing moss and color variety in shadows (saturated purples and blues).
Thanks for pointing out though, i'll do my best to be much faster with the next piece and not be distracted by small details.

>>2390721
Just wake up 30 minutes earlier and do some sketches and studies if you absolutely don't have the time throughout the day. You will even feel better for accomplishing something before the day even started.

>>2391000
Anon, you're gonna make it. I've increased my time form 30 minutes to 4 hours so far, without a job. Time to step my game up.

>>2391004
I feel like i'm on a verge of significant revelation in drawing, something to do with visualizing and thinking in 3d. Also, like other anons said, drawing everyday from imagination helps a ton (in my opinion it's a good idea to draw without any refs for ~1h, it's easier to see your weak points this way).
>>
Hmm, it looks like I'll have the topics ready for tomorrow but I won't have the challenges to go along with it. The site will provide a topic and you'll be able to vote for the next day's topic but it'll take a couple more days to get the new submission system working with the topic challenge.

So you'll be able to use and vote for new topics but they won't count towards anything, at least not right away. It'll take me a couple more days to get the new submission system rolled out. After that it's the tribunal and then the fun stuff like leaderboards, graphs for the challenges, stats on the user pages, etc

>>2392094
This doesn't make sense. The only potentially "gay" artwork is what Jmgn and Saucy are doing, and they're using the nsfw thumbnails and if they don't you can report that. I can't imagine there's that much more implied gayness in any of the rest of the submissions that you need a tag to filter it out. If you're looking at people's anatomy studies and you find that gay then you have some issues.

This lamp is more than its aspect (I like it though), you can set the warmth and intensity of the light using the control panel. Colder and more intense light helps you concentrate when you need it, and warmer, softer light for less demanding tasks.
Do your research before criticising something

now this is a meme I can get behind unlike stella
>>
>>2392961
at least we started at the bottom so we can't go any lower. these last couple threads have convinced me not to allow any form of comments or chat on the site because who knows what kind of shit people will get up to

in my opinion when it comes to moderation you either need to have all or nothing. i don't want to be the word police any more than i want to be the art police so I'd lean towards the no moderation side of things. that means the site would turn into a shithole so I'll just avoid all that

i hope that didn't come off sounding negative. this was written from the perspective of someone who would have to decide whether or not to ban/mute someone for not being able to interact with people of the opposite gender. no thanks

>>
>>2392983
no like i said this wasn't me hating you guys for shitposting. 90% of my posts in here are anonymous and i'm right there in it

it's just that this site has a reputation and if I let that spread to the LAS then it'll scare people away. i want people to draw every day and I don't care if they draw steven universe fanart or crazy gaping butthole furry porn. i don't care but you know other people do and they'll shit all over them for it. since i don't want to tell people to be nice to each other i'll just go with the nintendo approach.

I do want some kind of critique system that will have to involve human interaction but i think it'll be gamified like the rest of the site. earn a critique request after x days of posting, submitted critiques get approved by the tribunal to filter out shit tier responses, approve critiquers get points, tribunal voters get points, critique requester gets critiques, etc

Your having issues with color partly due to issues with value. The biggest issue I see with both value and color is lack of contrast. It helps to abstract your piece into a few solid simple shapes. Use contrast to get a thumbnail that reads well.

Right now the value used for the skin is pretty samey with the background. You could either push the background darker and the skin lighter, or vice versa. Have distinct light, midtone and dark value groups.

Your colors also lack contrast, specifically in terms of saturation. Everything is medium saturation or high saturation, but nothing is low saturation. You have no grays and near-grays. Grays are your opportunity to make surrounding colors pop without making them garish, and they also allow you to introduce wildly different hues into the painting while keeping the palette unified.

It helps you have a scene in mind with specific light sources. The colors used in the background will dictate what ambient light colors you should use.

This is a great critique anon, thank you. I'll rework the colors keeping all this in mind.

Thanks again dude.

You can always open up the color picker and just sample around the painting. You'll get a quick feel for what ranges of hue, value and saturation you're using.
