What do you guys think about tig sculptures as art? I enjoy making them but not sure what poses or emotions to go after and never really sure what to mount them onto.

I stumbled upon an artist and when looking at his art it looks like it's traced.

I am posting all images I can find from his twitter.

The reasons I think its traced:
The lines and shapes are ridiculously perfect but there's no line weight, and in more detailed areas like shoes and hands it sometimes looks like he doesn't know what he's doing with the lines.

As soon as something demands a certain ammount of detail, it is either left an empty space or its messy.

Nothing else but the shapes hold up to the same quality as his posing.

On top of this, he admits to having been a toxic member of the community, and refuses to post old art "because they don't look like the ones I am drawing now"

His twitter is https://twitter.com/DavikUltra but when I google it I can't find his twitter in any way, which is suspicious.

His instagram is also down.

The only other place I can find him is on Fiverr where he has twelve 5 star reviews that praise him as the next messiah, and no other reviews, which is also shady.

I do hope he's an innocent and honest man trying his best and if he is, god speed to him and his carreer. There are just too many red flags.

I hit a brick wall with art last year and haven't enjoyed drawing since.

I'm struggling to take my art to a higher level. I feel like I'm on the edge of becoming a professional, but I've lost all passion. Not even commission money is a motivator anymore.

Most of my art now is bland, with boring rendering and composition. It's like all the soul is sucked out.

Other hobbies have been drawing me away from art. I've been spending more time outside avoiding my desk, but that just makes me paranoid I'm going to slowly forget how to draw.

I'm thoroughly convinced drawing is a self abuse ritual I have some fucked relationship with. Like ball torture, wrist cutting or Warhammer.

You are getting crabbed.

Some tips:

Put down the pencil for a bit. Go outside, look at new things: parks, libraries, galleries, sports events, etc. Feel the ambience, get inspired by the scenes of life.

Look at art you don't usually. Illustrations, cartoons, stickers, fine art. Anything outside your comfort zone.

Try drawing something new. Use a new medium.

Imagine a story and illustrate it.

Sometimes I take a two week break from my arts. I'll still think about them and what to improve. Don't guilt yourself however, fully relinquish your desires and responsibilities in art. Taking a vacation gives you time to decompress.

You won't forget how to draw, you may even gain a new perspective.
Take care anon

Hi. I use clip studio. AND I FUCKING HATE PAINTING!!! I'm wondering what your process is from start to finish. I can sketch out something and use vector layers to make clean lineart, but then I get stuck. I hate painting in this god forsaken program. It takes me on average 6 FUCKING HOURS to finish a simple drawing with no background. I know it is probably because of my brain being small, but every method of painting is so fucking time consuming and annoying. How do you do it??

This is a thread to discuss all kinds of digital drawing hardware: non-display graphics tablets, pen display tablets, portable tablets and more.

>What should I buy?
State your:
>Type (display? non-display? portable?)
>Size (in inches)
>Other information
>Previous equipment

If you have any additional questions, ask them.

>Recommended tablets:

Intuos 3 - Best budget tablet.
Intuos Pro M - The best non-display tablet.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite - Budget portable display tablet. Very solid drawing experience with Wacom EMR tech.
Used iPad Pro 2nd Gen 12.9" - Best option for a display tablet.
Galaxy Tab S7+ - Good premium alternative to an iPad Pro
Used Cintiq Pro 24 - Big tablet for big budgets


XP-Pen, Huion, Gaomon and every other Chinese brand - Poor build quality, lackluster pens, broken tilt, struggles to register light pressure, horrible customer support and the displays are not calibrated. All Chinese brands are basically the same because they're all centralized. Also watch, Chinese companies shill HARD on /ic/. Check out the webm to understand how bad they are.
Microsoft Surface Pro - The N-Trig digitizer means you will always get wobbly lines.
Lenovo - Bad drawing performance.
