When you feel that way, you should hide your layer menu and stick to one layer, use a small pen tool and the eraser, nothing else from there for a while

Please help me figure the steps he did to make this. I only know the usual sketch, line, base color, then shade. This looks more fun to do. I specifically want help with the layers as I am not well versed with clip studio paint, or digital painting in general

1. Cut and carve line style (where loose sketchy line art is tidied up with the erase tool rather than perfectly pulled inking lines being used). KNKL on youtube is a good example of an artist that works in this way. 2. Blend layers for rendering. Make, for instance, an "overlay" layer and alpha lock it to your base flat layer, and then add a layer mask to completely hide it. Paint with white on the mask directly to reveal the overlay in only the areas that you want it for lighting. This is an EXTREMELY common workflow because it ensures you don't have to go back and color pick every time you want to work on a given layer - you just work on the mask in greyscale and reveal some or all the hidden color that is already there.

If you don't know who she is, she painted realistic Jesus when she was like 6 years old and has been sort of resting on her laurels of success as a child prodigy painter. I've been following her and every post was just about x painting from x years ago and frankly I'm just relieved she didn't fall victim to prodigy syndrome and actually tried something non-religious for once.

>> No.5031071

It's solid, it doesn't blow my mind. She has a great sense of texture, the clothing looks great, but there's nothing designey or painterly about it that really makes it interesting to me. The composition is boring - it has that "glamour shots" vibe where it's an extremely literal interpretation of a bone stock portrait photo (whether or not she did it from a photo). Nothing is indicated, nothing is abstracted. She gets nerdy points for self consciously making sure you can see the Zorn pallete (which she may well have used to do the actual painting), but loses a point for self consciously wearing an "I'm an artist" hat. She regains that point for, impressively, doing this in acrylic (because acrylic is sucks and makes something like this VERY painstaking). The very high end portraiture zeitgeist seems to be extremely glossy, photo-literal interpretations (see: Ralph Heimans - who charges tens of thousands for a painting), so really she's probably right on point if that's the kind of work she's trying to do, but a whole year on a basic single portrait on black is nuts.

anyone here got ADD or ADHD? have you been medicated? did it have any effect on your ability to make yourself focus on drawing more often and see projects through to completion?

i have had a problem with focusing but i'm not sure if getting medicated will help me. it's not that i can't focus on something in the moment, because i can, when i'm focused enough on a project i can work on it all day long without even having to eat because my focus pushes the feeling of hunger to the back of my mind to where i don't feel it. it's that i get bored of what i'm doing and then move onto something else, and occasionally return back to the same hobby. if i lose interest in what i'm doing then i don't care, and if i don't care then i don't have passion to do it well, and i can't force myself to care about something i don't care about (unless it's a job. if someone was paying me to draw then i probably could make myself do it even when i don't feel up to the task). drawing and painting is one of the few things i have consistently returned to many times. i'm sure someone else here has dealt with something like this in their life. i need some outside perspective. i need to know if it's realistic to expect that medication can do anything about it. ADD and ADHD stimulant medications are purported to give someone with an attention deficit, the ability to focus on something they couldn't focus on before. is being able to focus on something different from giving a shit about it in general? in so many ways it feels like semantics, to differentiate the two ideas from each other. from everything i've read on the topic, it sounds like they are the same thing. your kid doesn't care about doing homework because it doesn't interest them? medicate them, and now they can focus on things they don't care about, but still need to get done.

Quoted By: >>5031015

it sounds like our problems are opposites. you say it never stopped you from drawing, only from learning. for me, they're the same thing.

i have improved, but at a snail's pace. my drawing abilities are hardly better from what they were at when i was in middle school in the late 2000's. when i do draw, i learn new things by figuring out what works and what doesn't work through trial and error, but since i never draw, i hardly learn anything and i hardly get better. if i had the motivation to draw every single day, then i think i would see huge improvement and progress after only a year or two because that would be a lot of hands on experience. if i was drawing and painting every single day, i would do more drawing in the span in only a couple of months, than i have done throughout my entire life up to this point. also, even if i did get better, i still hardly ever do it. what's the point in developing a skill that you never use? especially one that is used purely for personal hobby reasons

Quoted By: >>5031096

To be fair, I never drew in my free time-- only out of boredom during shitty hs classes. It was the only thing I was even marginally 'good' at. The meds do give you a lot of energy and motivation-- the focus people talk about is less 'looking closely' and more the ability to organize thoughts. I'm biased because it vastly improved my life, but you should consider giving it a shot. You have nothing to lose, talk to your doc about possible side effects and see if it's an option. Expanding your abilities and skills can never be wrong, it's good for your brain.

Define what you mean by 'worth it'. Having a few people see and like your work? Twitter works if you tag your stuff properly, I once posted a drawing that was nothing but a bunch of cartoony mushrooms and got some likes there. Having several people see and like your work? Depends on what you make, how good you are and how consistent your posting would be, but I imagine that with proper descriptions/tags twitter could work aswell.
