Alright sp/ic/s, here's what's up.All of us complain about how slow this board is compared to other boards, how bad and toxic this board is compared to other boards (apparently including /b/ which surprised me) and how unproductive this board is compared to EVERWHERE ELSE ON AND OFF THE FUCKING INTERNET.
So, this thread is meant to gather and share ideas on how to jumpstart /ic/.
On my part, I've been posting roll threads every once in a while, and once I get better at drawing, I want to start posting study threads.
What will you guys do to fix this board? It needs to be a community effort, and complaints about mods deserve to be addressed here too.

This thread is meant for artists who might want to try to make anime works 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.
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, hands aren't important!

Because we should not have to make new threads or post in draw threads with our fundamental exercises.
Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make your mom proud.
AVOID asking unrelated questions, there is a question thread for that.
Visit the usual "Artbook Thread" to find your desired books. (Or look in the new sticky)
Do not forget to PLEASE RESIZE and crop your images before uploading them. 1kpx is fine.
There's a new sticky in town! You can see it at:
>Thread study: Try to draw/paint the opening or any other following images.
Feel free to post your original works as well if you're trash.
TRY TO BE MORE ACTIVE AND GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK - many studies are left unreplied, which is a bit sad and can be quite demotivating for the people that try their best to improve, but are left directionless.

Recently I’ve been going through a quarter life crisis and I’ve been really looking at my life and where its headed with this art thing. I decided to write down everything I want for myself realistically in the next year, and what I want is pretty simple:
A studio apartment
Basic utilities - Water, Electric, Internet, No cable
Food, Uber, phone
Simple right? So I started looking up prices of these things so i’d know exactly what I have to achieve.
Studio apartments in this area are around $500 - $900 a month for rent. For first month’s rent it’s double so let’s say roughly $2k the first month RENT ONLY. Next ideally you would want to be making around 4x your rent to live comfortably.. If rent is $900, you’d have to be making at least $3,600 a month steadily
So then I asked myself is this possible as a freelancer?
So looking at the most professional jobs as an illustrator, It is no secret that the highest paying jobs don’t even cross the 1K mark per illustration if you’re just starting. The information below is from a 4chan post from 2 years ago but i think the prices are roughly accurate compared to what I’ve heard myself..
Magic the Gathering: $800 - $1,800 USD
Applibot: $800 - $1k?
Paizo: $150 - $350
Alderac Entertainment group: $175 - $250
Fantasy Flight: $100 - $250
