I hear that Portland is great to live in as an artist, except that finding a job, (not just a job as an artist, any job) is next to impossible because so many artists are there having to work day jobs as baristas and stuff.

Been using it for a couple of years now, and it's probably the best program I've found for digital inking. Coloring is an ordeal, and I would still recommend using Paint Tool SAI over Manga Studio at least for the coloring portion of a drawing if you're going all digital, but for black and white drawings, or even just for doing the lineart for a piece you color in Sai, Manga Studio is definitely my preferred way to go. The line quality I get out of Manga Studio is the best I've ever gotten out of a computer by a long shot, and the different special rulers like the Perspective Rulers, Parallel Lines rulers and Radial Curve rulers are a godsend when working on backgrounds and stuff.

Keep in mind that this is all assuming you use a tablet to draw with. I have no idea what people who draw with a mouse or who use vectors need out of their programs, so I won't presume to comment on that.

Thought it'd be fun to post the progress of my Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3/Legend of Korra arcade stick.

For a long time I'd been rocking my Monster Buster Club stick:

I figured I was due for an upgrade, so I bought an Xbox 360 Street Fighter X Tekken Arcade Fightstick V.S. and a ChImpSMD mod to use it on the PS3/PC:

So anyway, I've currently been working on the artwork for the top of the stick, but at some point I'd like to do all sides, including the back. Big project, so I thought I'd post the progress as time goes by.

As far as the subjects, Korra is in a modified M.O.D.O.K costume, Lin Beifong is dressed as Magneto, and Asami is going to be held by or driving a Sentinel that is made to look more like a Sato type of robot.

I originally wanted to do Korra, Mako and Bolin, but these three fit the roles much better.

Oh well.

When you're commenting on someone's artwork, do not tell them "how dare you draw that, I drew something similar already".

There are so many artists out there that have drawn similar ideas, but that doesn't make them bad. Just look at how many Renaissance artists painted The Virgin Mary seated with angels around her, holding the newborn baby Jesus-- you could practically make a drinking game out of it. But everyone who draws something brings something different to it. Don't be discouraged if you see a similar idea "done better" than you think you could draw, either.

In all seriousness, though, there's a right and wrong way to critique.

There's art that people still try to point out anatomical problems on that I drew way back prior to even Freshman year of college in '09, and I'm a Senior now. I know the anatomy is bad on that drawing, that's why I've long since stopped drawing like that.

How do you develop this? I've been drawing for five years now, but I still have no feel for perspective. I know to use references and stuff and do so liberally, but unless I am attempting to do a 1:1 copy (which, given that we are on a 'toon site, is rare as most of the drawings I desire to finish outside of practice are with very stylized cartoon proportions), it all goes out the window.

The only way I know is to lay out vanishing points and plot out lines to line stuff up, but the result is always stiff, forced, and only slightly useful if the drawing isn't some boring symmetrical pose. It seems like the only solution is just to "wing it" in each drawing, but... how? If I just freehand it and then go back and lay in VPs, I always find that my drawing was wrong.

Also, Google Sketchup is a free, simple 3D construction package. You can build a scene and change the viewing angles to give you a better idea of where everything goes.

Thanks. Maybe I will draw some shapes from sketchup in various angles to get a better sense.

/draw/ i'm going to tell you my life's story
i'm a shithead who can't draw but the only thing i ever do is draw and i like doing it a lot BUT lately it's been hard. you know 'em bad art blogs and threads and whatnot. i've been on them and it hurt me more than i thought it would because i am a big stupid baby
that happened back in like june or something and i haven't been able to draw since then because my confidence has gone away completely and i'm afraid it's going to happen again even though i don't really post my art anywhere??

so how do you guys cope with a drawing rut, not be a big stupid baby (like me) about things, and what are some bad things y'all have drawn in the past

Oh well that looks pretty good so far, the perspective on the nose is a little off: it should be at more of a 3/4 angle than the head on view you have going thus far but overall I think it's looking good.

Perhaps you would be interested in the stuff I've drawn? All of these have been made for a /co/ roll or drawthread.

I can't draw very well with the tablet, I'm trying to get some practice. I used to be better, I guess, but then I stopped drawing for months and now I have to relearn. I'm still trying to find a style too.

If you have requests, I'll do them. Just be warned: I'm slow, specially if I have to color. I may not do all of them either but I'll try.

Looking back on McKay's art, you really see some Buckley shite on the face...
Which is frustrating, cos it shows he actually knows the fundamentals body-wise.
Hell, its the only case I know of where the person knows anatomy really well first, THEN goes into drawing.

Yeah, I do remember hearing that.

I find his lack of fan service despite all of the sexy poses he drew more frustrating. He is not even against the existing rule 34 of his characters.

Hey, so I draw-fag'd around /co/ for a while, and some people requested I make a thread here. So here goes I guess.

I'll dump a few of what I drew in /co/ Feel free to request more. I wont do them all, but I'll draw whatever request I feel like in my spare warmup time.

Every time I heard "The Queen's Jubilee" as of late, I thought of the X-Men character. Could you draw her smiling with a crown and a huge diamond ring on? Nothing sexual, unless you're in the mood to do so.
