Somewhere that will not lose value due to money printer go brrr. >>4376 >it might count as misplacement of funds that could be punishable by law? To receive money by mistake is not a criminal offense. If it was a mistake they will simply ask you to give back the money. >Can I just get an apartment now or should I just wait until I get a job first You will have a hard time finding an apartment without a job because rentcucks like you are very high risk. You could use your parents as guarantors though if you think you can make it in time. >4378 >I'm still questioning on whether or not to join a bank or not, a credit union apparently has no monthly fees Are you a full time student under the age of 24? Most banks offer student accounts with no fee at all. They will even give you money for doing certain types of transactions. You will need 2 photo id and proof of school attendance.
>>4396 >You will have a hard time finding an apartment without a job because rentcucks like you are very high risk. You could use your parents as guarantors though if you think you can make it in time. What do you recommend I do then Mr. Jewstein, buy a house? Take out a mortgage? Because at this point I'm considering it. You were totally right all apartments I've checked thus far are 1.5-1.9k at the cheapest in my immediate vicinity, even worse that isn't the problem, the problem is leasing, if they don't offer a month to month lease contract then I'll be fucked by month 3 if I can't reinvest my time to getting higher paying jobs like I plan to, of course we all know plans don't always go how we want. Although the most annoying thing about this whole ordeal is that my mother just immediately told me off regarding the whole thing because she told me I won't find a month to month lease, I had to scream at her that it's at least worth going to see all those vacant apartments then just asking the landlord there and then if I can get a month to month lease. Shout out to the guy in this thread always trying to get me to speak to people. You will get your wish at last. I found a apartment for $900 in >Yonkers Which works well since I can stretch out my cash to 4 months there, and get a better job there. But I still want to see all my options. >Are you a full time student under the age of 24? Most banks offer student accounts with no fee at all. They will even give you money for doing certain types of transactions. You will need 2 photo id and proof of school attendance. This might be a problem, I can only present maybe one photo id, and can only provide online attendance.

You can find another tenant to replace you though if you want to leave early without breaking the lease. >I can only present maybe one photo id, and can only provide online attendance. Online school is fine. Give him a copy of your grade report. You need 2 photo id so you better get 2 photo id goy.

>>4269 I apologize for what your eyes are about to be subjected to. I've had a vague idea of a zombie girl for maybe a month, so this theme seemed like a good time to actually draw her. Ended up doing this comic in one sitting on a whim. Apart from which I think I've done some fifty sketches over the week. Honestly, it's crazy. Even if it's all pretty crude that's a lot of volume. I think it's the most I've ever drawn any one character. I have no idea why I like her so much because the design is really rough.

I really want you to be doing those Dynamic Sketching exercises a lot, your lines and curves would be so much stronger by now if you'd put some more effort into that.

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.
>>4277 What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Arm muscle strength is not a meme. The meme is believing that there is no correlation between moving your muscles without shaking and the strength of those muscles. Also, I've realized why it's often hard for me to get out of bed. It's simply because I don't have a good enough reason to do so. Asking ones self "Why am I not getting out of bed." helped me with this. Marcus Aurelius did something similar I remember.

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...

>>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.

>>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.
