Comprehensive Resource List for the Aspiring Artist V1.01

sixmilliondeadinternets:

A.K.A. “Pato is autistic and shows off his massive collection of saved links”

Have a seat, get a cup of coffee and sit through this. Hopefully you won’t regret it. This is mostly about illustration, by the way.


FREQUENTLY ASKED BULLSHIT


  • “WHICH TABLET SHOULD I BUY?”

Get the cheapest shit available. If you’re in America/Europe a Wacom Bamboowhatever apparently does the trick. If you’re anywhere else get the cheaper-end Genius ones because Wacom tablets are expensive in every place that’s not the first world. Getting a $600 tablet will not make you magically improve and it’s a goddamn waste of money. Too poor for tablets? Start with a damn pencil.

  • “POORFAG HERE, CAN’T AFFORD PHOTOSHOP/SAI, WHAT THE FUCK DO I DO?

This is the Internet, pirate the shit out of them! Here’s a list of freeware programs you could use, because pirating is bad, mkay.

For general illustration:

  • GIMP - Non-shitty, open-source Photoshop Clone.
  • Paint.NET - If you are somehow too dumb for Photoshop clones here’s something easy to use.
  • Flowpaint - Even simpler.
  • Inkscape - Apparently good for things like vector art.
  • Artweaver - Get the free version which kind of sucks but otherwise decent.
  • Chibipaint - Sounds weeaboo as fuck The best thing out there for oekaki, or so they say.
  • Will add more as I find them.

For 3D modelling and such:

More links coming SOON! (Soon: Duke Nukem Forever).

  • “I’M TOO MUCH OF A FAILURE I WILL NEVER IMPROVE”

Spoilers: Improvement will take a long time, specially more if you’re self-taught. Improvement requires dedication and consistenct in your learning. Don’t expect to get great if you’ve just started, and don’t expect greatness in the first year or so either. Save the shit you draw so in the future you can notice that progress has indeed been made.

If you still think you’ll never improve just look at this and realize how wrong you are. Now, if you think you’ll instantly be as cool as that guy, look at this and realize that you still have a long way to go.

  • “I HAVE ARTIST’S BLOCK WHAT DO”

Artist’s Block is a very complicated thing but the underlying reason is either lack of creativity, acedia or just a towering pile of bullshit. The best way to treat it is to take up theoretical drawing (anatomy studies, for example) and treat it as a chore. If you need ideas look for the Ideas Generators section below.


NOW, ONTO THE ACTUAL LIST THING.


All links taken without permission but I’m sure nobody minds a bit of publicity.

BOOKS

This is actually more than enough to get you started when it comes to getting books. Saying that the amount of books here is FUCKING MASSIVE would be an understatement.

A PRACTICAL APPROACH TO GESTURE DRAWING

Simple practice method for the aimless artfag: Open any of the first two links, and choose a distinct category (For example, faces). Tell it to switch every 10 minutes if possible; else, get a timer. Fire it up and start drawing what you see. The idea is that you should stop after 10 minutes and move onto the next one, no matter how incomplete it is. Repeat until your art gets showcased in the Louvre.

COLOR THEORY AND MISCELLANEOUS COLORING FOR THE MASSES

ANATOMY AND GENERAL HUMAN BODY STUFF

PERSPECTIVE

GENERAL REFERENCES

LOOSE BUNCH OF VARIOUS CRAP
