Stupid question but how the fuck did people get this good at coloring but suck at anatomy this much?
It's not just this artist but many artists can render amazing pieces but just plain suck at anatomy or drawing something like a horse from the front.
Aren't they literally copying something in front of them?
I'd maybe understand if this was a beginner but but looking at the rendering that isn't the case.
Did nobody tell them?
How does this happen?
Is this dude just deformed and I picked a bad example?
I see other examples of people that aren't deformed but look terrible.

What is /ALT/?
If you're looking for a place to post your cartooning then you've found the right general. This is /ic/s 1st and only merged hub where both Eastern and Western stylization can coexist peacefully, hence the double title. However, by community demand and long history, this is favorably an Anime general.

I bought a few cadmiums and lead white. I've gathered that as long as you don't have skin contact with them or inhale them (context: with grinding when making your own or sanding it when dry) then I'd be safe. I also heard that since they're mixed in paint and that the volume of it is so little, it wouldn't even suffice for it to actually do any harm.

Any word on this being correct?
Any other oil painters out there?

Cadmiums are a heavy metal so yes, dangerous to your health. Don't eat when painting or eat the paint. I'm a little puzzled as to why you have lead white as a beginner. Lead white is indeed quite dangerous and has very specific uses.

What specific uses exactly? I'm not exactly a beginner, I just never had any cadmium/lead based paints because I always have gone with student grade alternatives.

Thank you for replying anon. Also from the thread post, is my statement on handling these cadmium/lead based paints correct? Just avoiding skin contact (no consumption of course), wearing gloves and having an open window would be enough?
I do.

Don't use lead white as a beginner.
Cads are standard, just don't put your hands in your mouth, but I only break out lead white at the final stages of a portrait, where required. I don't keep it on the palette all the time.

Post a png of your linework of a finished drawing. Then try to color someone else’s piece and post it linking to the original art. You can recolor and add things but you cannot erase the original’s linework. The more vague your original linework the better.
This might be a good color practice challenge.
I’ll post mine first. Even if you don’t want to color post your linework, or if you don’t want to line then still try coloring someone else’s piece.
This is for fun but critique on colors is welcome.
