Did you know that once upon a time genitals were part of human anatomy? And that it’s been this way since the dawn of forever. And that certain scenes, illustrations, etc. call for them? And that those scenes don’t have to be porn? Also, jsyk, drawing genitals is pretty much a part of life classes which are almost required for concept art positions.
You’re not a real artist if you haven’t drawn a winged penis somewhere in a friend’s book/notebook.tagged as: you can't draw genitalia unless you're drawing porn. internet dixit. rabo nabo picha polla tranca pija verga chorra. submission.

Making art always turns out to be a more emotional process than one would initially think. [badly gif’d confession by yours truly]

While I do agree with some points exposed here, I don’t think young people who draw are actually thinking in making it a career, it’s probably in the back of their heads, but they are probably just enjoying the moment. You gotta start somewhere, you just can’t demand people to learn anatomy and theories when they have just started, it really can ruin their fun. When they start to get serious about their art, be it wanting to be a professional or a hobbist, it’s when you can tell them to go back to basics. And anyway, I think that’s part of the artist journey, you can tell somebody what to do a thousand times, but they won’t until they realize about it by themselves.
It kinda bothers me this “grow out of anime”, I don’t think anybody should tell you what’s better for you. Your own art will evolve to adequate your professional choices and needs. I do agree an illustrator should have a wide variety of styles and be able to adapt to different media and themes, but there will be always a “style”, a drawing form you call home, and no one should take that from you.
What’s the point if we all draw realisic by default?
Also, what’s “anime style” again? I guess most people who say it, refer to generic moe used in ads ‘cause it’s the new shit, but I think they know nothing about the variety of “anime styles” and “manga styles”, which is a bother. Dare to say “Vagabond” is an easy style, please.
And why does a style have to be complicated to be better?
Whatever. I agree you gotta be open minded, dare new styles and techniques. I don’t agree with “my experience and choices should be everybody’s experiences and choices”.tagged as: submission. reblog. anime style. blablabla.

I don’t really mind sharing my brush settings when asked (though sometimes I don’t even know remember what I used XD) but I don’t think it will help or make other people have the results I get, if that’s their intention, ‘cause those settings are the ones working for me, how envision my pictures and how much pressure I hold the pen. There are soooo many variables involved in drawing and painting besides the tools, that asking for the settings is somehow absurd.
It’s ok to have a starting point, but it’s better to try by your own and set your own brushes.tagged as: reblog. art. egolasticfantastic. submission.

XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD Is this shit for real or the OP is just trolling?
This is the weirdest confessions I’ve read.
A very simple confession: I hate having to re-do circles over and over. Why do they have to be so hard to make?

This is so genuine I had to reblog XDDDtagged as: best confession ever. seriously. fucking circles. hope you die in a deep pit of shit. submission.
Waiting is the worst part.
Though actually I follow Eschergirls for the lulzy poses and wardrove, not for redraws that, in their quest to remove the sexy, forget to add dynamism and visual power.
Also, I think everybody can see when something is wrong, can tell if this or that is off and needs correction, but drawing a correction is a whole different thing, particularly when you criticize anatomy in the original and draw even worse anatomy in the redraw.
Frankly, most of the times I feel some people that do redraws (not everybody, there are some good ones) only do it to be in the spotlight and gain some kind of self-confidence by criticizing a pro artist (not necessarily a “good artist”).
