Hey, /ic/ I really wanted to ask you for advice.
What do you do when you want to draw but don't have the will and motivation for it?
I've always had a huge problem with the lack of assiduity even since I was a child and I honestly don't know what to do. Maybe it's sloth, maybe it's short attention span, but it really hurt not only my creativity, but also education and life in general. I often look at good art and feel very frustrated because I just can't force myself to do anything about my lack of motivation.
Has anyone ever had the same problem? I'd really appreciate any advice.
Get a softer kind of lead, like 4B - 6B.... Get a lot out in your sketchbook and keep moving without looking back. But complete everything you start.
A successful realization doesn't have to be perfect.
It's so hard to find good porn artists. The only ones I know are Sabu (pic related, thesabu.com), InCase, and Datura. Can you guys share some? Western or Japanese, either is good. Booru sites give me nothing but garbage, you have to go through so many bad pictures to find anything even remotely decent.
Stuff I look for in a porn artist:
- Great rendering skills
- Decent understanding of perspective (bad perspective really ruins an otherwise good drawing)
- Good understanding of anatomy (stylized anatomy is fine too)
If you know anyone who fills these 3 criteria, please share.
So how do I cure chronic procrastination?
>just do it
I can start like that but I won't be able to learn efficiently. Even if I somehow manage to go through my shit, the pain will come back the next day. That's the problem. I don't have energy to just "do it" everyday.

Say it with me. Not. Gonna. Make. It.
ever since i saw kjg i just assumed that's what most artists do - drawing directly from imagination.
but recently i've gotten more of the impression that the large majority of painters will use photos.
like pic related - how likely do you think it is he came up with this all in his head? the general idea, maybe, but supplemented with reference for the details, right?
100%. Imagination comes from putting together memories which come from references. The more and better you remember things, the less you have to use your time looking. The skill level of that city tells me that guy has drawn a lot of cities before and he's likely remembered specific things like how windows are, the stairs, color of lights, etc. Obviously if he doesn't remember something, he can always look at a ref, but you'll never know how much that is because yo don't know what's in his head either. You can only see what he's showing and at the end of the day, that's all that matters anyways. Refs or not, always strive to make your work the best it can be.

we artist shouldn't stand for this shit man.
So, I have decided to redraw my practice sketch in flash and the results did it better. So if you have seen the drawing, do you had any thoughts on this redraw.
any new ways to look at this image ?
-Red little house
-One mona lisa floating on top of another in perspective
- a top down view in which the two could be seen as "staning in line"
>trading art progress with a younger artist (19, I'm 31) on discord for the past year
>he's doing college so he's not full on grind, we probably draw the same amount of hours
>his improvement is leaps and bounds ahead
>we started out roughly the same but now my drawings look flat and wonky next to his
"Neuroplasticity is a meme" is a meme
>my one anecdotal example proves you were wrong all along!
Seriously though, you just discovered that the world isn't a level playing field for everyone. People are not equal and life is not fair. So what are you going to do about it? Bitch and complain or work your ass off to improve? Someone said something once that really stuck with me (paraphrasing): Years are going to pass by regardless if you draw or not, so you might aswell keep drawing. If you fast forward five years would you be at a better place if you kept drawing or just quit altogether?
How big do you set your canvas for maximal print quality? Suppose you want poster sized prints, or bigger.
Use Clip studio paints anti-aliasing scale upres and remember to put in 300 dpi. CMYK mode.
Then paint over parts in smaller canvases and patch it all together at the end. Or get a badass computer and paint in 20000x15000.
Hey, does anyone know a way to rip/download videos from nma? The method of getting the vimeo links directly and putting them into a vimeo video ripper no longer works, is there any way to download the videos besides recording them with a video capture program?
Did you even read the OP and just assumed he was asking for rips and not trying to rip the videos himself?
As for OP, what I do is just use video capture and let it record on a spare computer while I do work on another computer. It makes it super easy as these stupid web devs make it autoplay so I don't have to do extra work.
