Is he right?
^- that's his art, according to the "about" page on his youtube. I guess he's a tranny? The art is standard tumblr fare, extremely low-level. If that's the sort of art you want to do, then yeah, anatomy study is unnecessary. But if you want to be good at art, anatomy is one of the top skills you need to know.
There's a reason anatomy and the human figure has been one of the primary focuses of Western art since the Renaissance, and it's not going to be dethrone by some tumblr tranny.
Haven't watched the whole video, but I don't think he says anatomy study is unnecessary, just that it shouldn't be a top priority, which is true. There are lots of pros who have studied anatomy to the point where they were able to draw decent figures and understood the most important landmarks of the human body and then went on to more important subjects. Also a lot of great artists only study anatomy passively through figure drawing, never break-downs of isolated muscles and bones and all that shit.
Guys there was this one online thing where you adjust the perspective lines and you screenshot the result in a png and i cant find it whats the name of it .. plus another one you download and its really easy but all links broken carapace is called halp
Here is some o my shits .. crit if you want
and another stylisation
Keep a text file for this stuff anon. I saved this awhile back. I didn't write it and I don't know if it's what you're looking for:
>>a Perspective Grid. Do you actually create one? If so, how?
Tools my friend. There are some wonderful perspective grid creators out there.
Most are stand-alone, and simply output a reference image for you to overlay in your work. Some can be overlaid on top of your desktop too.
Here's a list of the ones I personally know of:
- PerspectiveEditor, by KNDY (Japanese, free, outputs to image, has a really intuitive/easy-to-use UI):
I personally really like this one, so I translated it to English.
- Carapace, by EPIC Games (English, free, outputs to image):
- EasyRuler, by eikun (Japanese, free, overlays on top of existing software, has many many features):
I REALLY want to translate this one, maybe some day I will. It appears to have all sorts of useful perspective rulers, 3D tools, etc:
Picture related, what I've been doing using PerspectiveEditor.

>everyone in the class hates me
There was like one person in my drawing classes that drew so well all her drawings made the models look like these really dynamic Hellenistic sculptures. Whatever she was doing she didn't learn it from the shitty drawing class. And she was hot too. It baffled me.
Here's my big fat face, rendered beautifully in oil paints. Now you guys
I keep expecting your work to become more like the work of John Patrick Byrne, James Stewart, or Thomas Hart Benton. You've got all the talent necessary, but pull back in terms of distance.
Is there something similar to Ctrl Paint but for Clip Paint Studio out there?
I thought I'd get started with Ctrl Paint but sadly it's using Photoshop. Any recommendations please?
You can't "convert" PS brushes to CSP. You can import the brush shape, but since the brush engines are different they won't be the same. It is obviously possible to do approximations but there is no such thing as converting brushes
I'm wondering this as well. I'm taking this digital painting class and it requires photoshop. I have installed some pseudo photoshop brushes but I can't tell if it's the same shit or not because instead of working with opacity we're working with sai's brush adjustments. Any help to make this less confusing would be appreciated.
Is it worth 400 pounds?
Are bigger tablets a net gain?
I'm thinking of upgrading to an Intuos Pro large from a medium, but is there much of a point?
The bigger the tablet you get the less portable it becomes, those massive cintiqs can't even move off the table, people have had to install very strong movable arm things to move it around but even then it's heavy
Smaller tablets allow you to fit it into a small bag, carry it with one hand, very portable
But the smaller the tablet you get the less drawing space you have and generally the quality of the tablet goes down, big tablets have more room for buttons and nifty features
I'd recommend asking yourself what you want, do you intend to sit as a desk with good posture and make art that way or would you prefer to take your tablet with a laptop and use it in bed and on the train
Imo don't go inbetween because it seems like you'd just lose the best of both worlds
That sounds like a very clumsy response tbqh.
Imagine your computer screen stretched on your table and compare that to the size you're used to when drawing on paper.
I have a huion giano (14 x 8.5 in), and I can't say that its size would be such a big advantage over a medium sized tablet. About 10 x 6 inch would be ideal, I think.
To answer your question, nah, I don't think it's worth upgrading. The only two categories that I'd be deciding between is M sized pen tablets and L sized screen tablets, depending on budget.
Is pic related the best resource for learning how to render properly?
Is this what you call Tumblr art style?
hey guys what do you think of natty? I think her art is pretty neat, do you think she read loomis?
How to study as a beginner when you don't know anything? What am I supposed to learn? Is there a path, a process with steps that I can take that can guarantee me the skills? I don't want to go with random studying like "today head, tomorrow values", it seems counter intuitive
I want to draw in the style of early medieval art. Is there any books, tips, videos, anything on how I can do that?
Specifically the Carolingian style like pic related
why don't you guess what they used for materials
and copy there lines. trace the designs.
you can end up finding faster and easier to reach the same result.
looks to me like they're using ink and watercolor.
do they look sincerely happy?
>twf you spend hours doing lineart only to find the sketch was more vivid, fluid and better in every way.
How do you keep from constantly changing forms when its time to clean up? You know what I am talking about, that last second "fix" that turns into hours of going around in circles trying to improve a figure only to end up with the initial sketch looking superior.
This happens every time and its becoming quite a bad habit, does anyone else do this?
Step 1.) Move to a semi-poor European country like Poland.
Step 2.) Become a freelance artist. Your market is global. Charge in USD only.
Step 3.) Never have to worry about money, because even if you only earn $20,000 USD a year, you are living comfortably even in big cities.
Loling @ all the idiots who want to move to the states for muh vidya game industry jobs.
Funny thing, I just came back from a trip to Gdansk, Poland and I thought the same. It's very cheap living there and "making it" should be much easier. It's not even that bad of a country
