how do i do lineart without dying inside and/or discarding the whole sketch?
i can crank out a decent sketch appealing to my twisted sensibilities, but the moment i get into clean lines and opaque shapes it just dawns on me how shit everything is
and i'm not even interested in rendering, just flat color, so who know

My friend once said that the reason lineart looks worse than a sketch is that your eyes can choose which lines to follow in the sketch. In a weird way, Lineart is like chiseling a more solid form out of the loose sketch. Basically the good drawing is in there somewhere, you just gotta figure out how to bring it out.
You can try using things like line weights and more loose gestural lines to put more energy into your drawings is the issue that they look a bit too flat.

Those are definitely some good legs. I also really dig the cybernetic arm.

>>130618700
>>130618847 this guy knows his shit.
it's all based on an "agreement" or suspension of disbelief of sorts. you know you're not looking at actual objects or people, but representations.
So you can have a representation that says "I'm very literal" (the one with clean lines) so then your brain requires it to fulfill that promise and execute the assumption.
With a sketch it's clear from the get go that there are a lot of things left unsaid and it's the main idea that's key, not the precision of execution. So it's more forgiving. And often times more interesting. It's also a more suitable approach to capture the essence of the situation.
>>
>>130618700
have you tried just cleaning your sketch? I have doing that for three years now and it gives better results and you can still get a clean drawing from that. It also keeps the flow of the original drawing. Just a recommendation. It's way better over doing lineart for me

Recent drawthread sketch. I want to do some studying but a. I'm overwhelmed on what to do and how to learn it and b. get bored easily and just wanna get back to drawing for fun.

also trying to enjoy the process more cause I feel like I speed through things too quickly for my own good.

>I want to do some studying but a. I'm overwhelmed on what to do and how to learn it and b. get bored easily and just wanna get back to drawing for fun.

I don't know if this will help but I do studies maybe every few days 3 or 4 times a week focusing on one thing that week. And then if I'm not "feeling" it, not in the mood I try and make the studies about something I have an interest in or am working on anyway. Like I want to do some life drawing, but am not in the mood but I do want to draw superheroes then I'll draw cosplay or i want to draw a specific character but I'm having a hard time I'll cast the character and then try and draw that actor paying attention to the parts I want to use for the character. Say your entire interest was drawing stretchy girls I'd find scenes from any of the Fantastic Four movies or The Mask and draw those but maybe fully render it or focus on shading across a curved surface or how they foreshorten limbs, things like that.

Some warmup I did yesturday before work. I noticed I tend to draw characters drinking coffee cause I can't just draw characters standing. Also drawing on newsprint and printer paper is a bit easier since most of the work isnt gonna be shown anyways.

>>130618961
It was a Total Drama Island girl as a stretchy superhero. Twas fun.

Anything helps; I just gotta do it. I discovered that I need to draw with my arm to really feel the groove so thats been helping as of late. Also trying out new brushes on digital helps alot.

I just draw the first draft, doesn't even to be perfect; you can add details later, and when I'm content enough I go erasing the lines I don't like and go over the lines that I do, darkening them if I'm using a ligther brush. It's a lot of erasing but it doesn't feel like it when you get used to it. I personally enjoy the process, way less stressing.
Your art is nice, If you'd ask me how I would go about it I would have greyed the lines from your draft and work from there, erasing what doesn't have to be there and keeping what I see good.
Here's how it turns out for me, you can obviously do better and cleaner than what I do, and make the lines thinner, it's just about personal preference and faster results. Sorry I can only show basic drawings, this is what is safe for me to post. I do full body more often but it's all shameful porn.

Just did this on Procreate.

How do you determine the right size for you digital canvas? Find out by trial and error? I swear only certain brushes work at large enough canvas, but then I fear I'll be over detailing with all that space.

Even have a friend that can sketch on as little as 600 by 600px with line brush only

I don't worry about the canvas size when working and usually tend to work on the larger end. And if I have something finished or am sharing then I resize the image to something "standard". But If you just want/need something to help feel comfortable or maybe worried about dimensions of the image, going with a paper sized canvas works. Print paper or sketchbook, I don't think it matters too much.

Work and home life also stresses me out and kills my drive. I've been stuck sketching because it's easier to set up. I have a pad, laptop, and everything to start learning Blender, 3D sculpting, or even just good 'ol drawing, but stress kills motivation.

I got a better paying job and finally got a room for myself, so I hope it turns around. Wish me luck bros...

how good do i have to be to gain like
millions of subs/tractions?

like from picrel here, how do i actually grow to bigwig market???

personally i think my anatomy and constrcution i at least,

batman TAS quality... so i should at least get like as many sub as it, but somehow i dont.
>>
>>130631511
>ow good do i have to be to gain like

Quality is nowhere near as important as consistency.
Apart from that either do at least some fanart of what's currently popular or nsfw stuff.

Them's the breaks.
Getting people to follow you out of the thousands upon thousands of people creating art online is tough, only a fraction will care about your original stuff and even less will ever feel like spending their hard earned money on it.

Making money from art is tough and it takes a LOT of effort, which has to be put in in advance, over a long time to even get going.

It's plausible but you are not exactly making it any clearer. if it s too hazy it seems now more and then the business is made only by connections and luck... which then. why bother to even practice?

all im saying is that it seems important to have a targetted marketting to gain the traffic but i dont know exactly what or how....
