I need money, so I'm considering all my options, one of which is commissioned visual work.
Basic stuff, like logos, banners, photo editing, digital pimple removal. I can't do figurative art, at least not using a mouse.
Anyone have experience in this area?
Art feels: Ruanjia- / Big boys edition

Can we have a collective Ruanjia/depression thread? I just kinda sat there and realized despite short lived bursts of (over-)confidence I'm actually nowhere near competent.
So I was staring at Ruanjias work in sort of a dreamy state and the absurd level of beauty, precision, detail, skillfully implied detail, control of edges... it's just an absolute joke how good this guy. It's so fucking ridiculously over the top. How the fuck can we even dream about achieving anything REMOTELY on this level? What in the fucking name of god man. Makes me want to quit. Which I won't but it does kind of cause feelings of overhelming despair.
I'm embarassed to look at my work now. Like it was some kids doodles. Like I was barely even trying, or simply too stupid to perform.
Also no photos. Take notes polskis. That's it... I'll just direct my anger towards photobashing polskis. Maybe that'll help.
>just look at it. Look at it and tell me it doesn't make you furious how far away you are from this skill.

"To any man who has slaved to acquire skill in his art, it is most irritating to have his ability referred to as a gift. Perhaps there is one genius in a hundred years or more who can achieve perfection by divine inspiration. I have never met such a man, and I do not know any successful artist who did not get there by the sweat of his brow."

A general message to aspiring artists: "Lack of knowledge can be greater torture than the effort of acquiring it. When all is said and done, nature is your best instructor."
Submit your drawings, receive feedback or critique others! Share your knowledge and remember to thank those who've critiqued or red-lined your drawings. Most importantly, have fun.
This thread is meant for artists who might want to try to make stylized work in-between their studies. It is strongly recommended that you use this thread in conjunction with learning the elements and fundamentals of art. You can also discuss the visual elements of various professional artists as well if you keep it relatively articulate and civil.
