>>4281 >ludicrous jewish fantasy Retiring early is perfectly doable though. I am doing very well compared to my peers and have a pretty good idea of what I need to do to achieve my goal. >muh stabby jab I have already thought it through and taking the vaccine is but a bump in the road to financial freedom. I don't want to end up like the med school graduates who lost their job as a practitioner because they were too unyielding to take the vaccine. >Absolutely fucking pathetic. To retire early and not having to worry about money in your old age is absolutely fucking based.
>>4283 Enjoy the potential health risks that come with the vaccine. By the way should I wait for my parents to see if they can help out with my job search or should I just apply for a work from home one that likely doesn't pay enough to live off of but is worth risking.
>Found a job worth freelance applying for >It's one of those "Online work for a corporation and maybe work hard enough to make barely 1k a week" jobs >Whatever sure I need something >It requires paypal >try registering paypal >It needs a card >Have never had a card >Never even had allowance because I was always a non materialistic person but now I need a room to live in which costs more than anything I have ever wanted before I know this isn't the best place to ask but what the fuck do I do. Do I join a credit union since I hear they're better? Just apply for a card from Visa ASAP online because I need to see what this job entails? I don't know what to do here /loomis/ I have never done anything like this in my life before but I need to. I don't know where to start. I know, it's become exceptionally pathetic treating this thread this way since this probably can't even be considered venting any more but I'm completely lost. I'm scared and desperate, I haven't been able to exercise regularly in 3 weeks, and my heart is on the verge of suicide by rupture or heart attack at the rate I've been going. I need to be self dependent by the end of the year or I'm just backflipping off the nearest skyscraper or my own building. Please help. How the fuck do I become a functioning adult. I would have needed to ask anyway in the end because any job requires some sort of account to send money to but I have none.

Don't neglect your wonderful body, Anon. Physical health and mental health are strongly correlated; become a man worthy of your anime Original Character girlfriend's heart and realize your true potential in the disgusting, 3D Pig-Dimension through the time-honored technique of lifting things off of the ground into an anatomically strategic position and then putting them back down again! Official /loomis/ home gym workout routine for amateurs All exercises use light dumbbells (10lb, 20lb and 40+lb for lower body exercises-and a $20-$30 door frame pull up bar recommended) or body weight and are performed 3 sets proceeding until failure. Each days' series of exercises should require roughly two episodes of japanese girl cartoons worth of time to complete.

>do some rockclimbing because I haven't done it in years >forearms still aching two days later >rotor cuffs feel beat up >can barely hold my pencil I can't tell if this is a very good workout or a horrible workout for drawing. I imagine the meme autism of the grip strength should mesh well with the the movements of drawing, but I just don't know bros. It's one of the few exercises I actively enjoy doing.
>>4277 Can't rock climbing fuck up joints in your fingers and wrists if you are not careful? Running would be pretty good since it gets blood pumping but puts no strains on arms and upper body. Swimming, biking, calisthenics, yoga, weigh lifting all are good unless you will have an accident and get your hand injured.

Learning how to draw in 6 easy steps Anonymous 03/15/2021 (Mon) 17:58:18 No. 1991 [Reply] [Last]
>What is the purpose of this thread? The point of this thread is to establish for people the foundations of what is required in order to become a great artist. The people this thread is best aimed at are those so-called "experts" wanting to get back to the basics, or newcomers wanting to know how to start their journey towards becoming an artist. >Does the "six steps" mean I will become a great artists within the week? No. The purpose of the "six steps" is to establish a foundation for all art and drawing. You're not going to become an expert overnight because drawing is a skill that you need to develop over time. However, it's pointless to constantly bang your head against a wall for hours on end because that will do nothing except burn yourself out and become frustrated. To put it one way, it's a better learning process to spend 10 days sketching for an hour than spend one day sketching for 10 hours. >So, how does the "six step" process work? All you do is spend 15-60 hours everyday, drawing each successive step of the process. That's it. >What happens if I miss a day You just continue on with the next day as if nothing every happened. Spending double the time is not going to make up for the day that you lost. >What if I just don't feel like doing it one day? If you don't "feel" like it, learn to work through it because what you're doing is building a habit. If you're still having a "hard time", just get out your supplies, and set them up as if you were going to still practice. If you're still not "feeling it", perhaps drawing isn't your thing and you need to find a new hobby. >How was this process developed? Referring to resources that other artists have recommended in regards actually learning how to draw. So, here we go...

>>4262 I doubt you'll find any recorded information on it. I've had similar experiences, but with no idea what you're actually trying to do, or possibly doing differently when you're trying harder, nobody will be able to make sense of your problem. Although if you normally just sketch, the looser lines or rendering typically hide a lot of issues with your fundamentals, or possibly with your technique (for example if you never practice clean lines, your lines will look like shit when you try to do them "properly"). There are a lot of factors that go into art, and a lot of different techniques. If you're doing literally anything differently from what you're accustomed to, it's going to look worse even if you're trying hard to make it look good. It could be that simple. Or it could be something else, like you're stiffening up when you sit down with the intent to perform rather than just drawing as usual. Or maybe you try to draw nice without warming up. It may be less noticeable when you're just sketching, but if you're just starting for the day you'll typically perform rather worse than a while into it. Really, it could be any number of things.
>>4265 >If you're doing literally anything differently from what you're accustomed to, it's going to look worse even if you're trying hard to make it look good Maybe you're right, but it's a bit disheartening to not have a concrete way of approaching it. I thought I was making a shot in the dark anyway.

>>4013 >any good... anything on the basics of construction with shapes? i'm just learning how to do this I would start with just looking at some pictures of cartoons characters or objects you have and tracing shapes over them. Anything complex is made up of very basic shapes, the square, circle, and triangle. You'll learn about perspective as you get a handle on construction, and be able to tackle more difficult subjects. The idea is to take simple forms and turn them 3D. Once you can do that, you can twist and turn them, change these shapes to be whatever you want, and you'll be able to visualize in 3D. Form drawing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhOdCVZjdDA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uEtdDvK6Xo I would start with CtrlPaint's beginner course on traditional sketching on his website.
>>4033 Thansk for the advice, but the shapes part is what I've already done. Those animals made from shapes is where I'm at now, and it's what I'm looking for. I don't mean to sound like I think I've mastered it, or anything. But I've been shapes and perspective for months and I want to move on from it.

I just saw some people here interested in NFTs and promoting their own stuff, so here is mine: https://opensea.io/collection/pre-rolls I just started this year and plan to keep doing it for a long time. Most of them are free (plus gas charges). If you just want to share your opinion and not buying it's fine too, after all I am still learning.

>>3992 I would not buy NFTs and >1000USD is not really a small amount of money.
>>3993 I was talking an average judging by what is usually spent in famous creators, but ok, what kind of NFT related content calls your atention the most? sport players NFTs, collectibles, 3D renders...? Also consider that some of them include meet and greets with celebrities or limited edition products like shoes
>>3991 If you are serious about making money through nfts I suggest looking into shill packages by pro shillers. It takes at least $10k in marketing for a successful nft launch though so if you can't even afford 0.5 ETH you should forget about it.

>>3987 >It is transferring the rights to that pictures specific encoding on the block chain Usually what you actually get is a URL, which might currently point to a particular image but could at any time turn into a 404 or be silently replaced with something else. It's inherently volatile.
(253.15 KB 800x800 ETH_minerkike.png)

Nfts are purely speculations. People buy them because they expect to be able to sell them later at a higher price. For the price to rise you need to create hype which is the result of good marketing. Personally I would look at the team's marketing budget before deciding whether to invest in a particular project. I would say that $10k is the bare minimum marketing budget for the project to take off. In order to successfully launch a nft you need a relatively large initial investment and it is risky business. That being said shilling on an obscure board with 12 users is a waste of time. ETH gas fee is super high right now due to nft.
>>3987 >It is transferring the rights to that pictures specific encoding on the block chain, of which their can only be one, which makes it rare and exclusive as a digital asset. The rights of what? You don't get copyright, you don't get permission to use that image in any way. You're transferring nothing. You're transferring a receipt for a receipt associated with an image. If you wanted to buy the rights to an image you would just go buy the rights to the image. >So you're saying there's a need to generate originals for monetary purposes for digital assets? There is zero need for it. I suppose you could maybe technically do it, but it would be utterly pointless. NFTs could perhaps serve a purpose for authenticating real art. Meaning you buy a physical piece of art and are also transferred the NFT for that piece so you can cryptographically verify the authenticity or ownership of that physical thing. But there is no good faith use in doing that for an infinitely reproducible intangible thing like digital assets. Maybe if you wanted to implement some orwellian DRM crypto based bullshit that would be a bad faith use. Artificial scarcity is immoral. But as NFTs are being interacted with here and now it's just stupid.

I don't know if /loomis/ is purely digital but I just started with oil paint (i mean absolute utter shit tier novice) after sticking to dry techniques all my life. Anyone got any advice because so far its really fucking hard for me.
>>3835 If you're a super novice, but used to dry mediums, you'd probably immensely benefit from learning basic underpainting/overpainting techniques. There are a bunch of schools for how to actually underpaint and what that does, but at the end of the day >the underpaint provides a guide for the overpaint >you should never have to fight the underpaint Once you have a strong underpainting basis you can experiment with one oil painting for indefinite amount of time until it is "right".
>>3837 Honestly these obvious revelations I'm going through right now. I mean, its honestly very fun, but I feel like there is more learning than actual creating and my canvas looks like a shitpickle. Maybe My initial concept is way ahead of my skill level but I want to see it through and a learning experience.
