I've been wanting to learn how to draw for a long time, but have never gotten around to it because I simply do not know where to start. On a scale of 1-10 my skill level is basically a 1. I can draw basic shapes, that is about it. I don't have any hobbies right now other than gaming and working out, and I would like to pick something else up.

I would preferably like to learn how to draw on a computer, most of the really nice art I see seems to be done that way now a days. As I stated earlier, my skill level is basically 1. I can draw basic circles and have used MS paint a few times, and have never touch any editing programs.

I have been wanting to do this for forever, but have been held back because I just have no idea how to start, or what even I should be doing for practice. Right now would be a great time for me to do this because I am currently somewhat incapacitated with some medical issues. Any tips/resources would be greatly appreciated.

Learning how to draw anything is more important than learning how to draw one thing.
His guide is fine. Also anything worth having is worth working for. Art isn't just something you can shit out. There is a natural talent for it yes, but even the most gifted person will have to study at some point in their life.
For me, 2D art was always a pain in the ass. 3D art was always fun, even when I was shit at it. If learning sounds like a drag to you, maybe art isn't for you.

Touchscreens are expensive, anon. A cheap 80 dollar tablet can save you from buying paper/pens/etc, but it's a different feel from a screen/paper. You won't be able to see where you hand is in relation to what you're drawing. On the other hand, you don't have your hand blocking the screen.
If you get good at one, learning the other shouldn't be that hard though.
Even if you don't draw every day, try to read up or think about techniques for the next time you end up drawing. (This might not really apply to 2D, but it works for me with 3D)

In the end, if you have fun with drawing, nothing will stop you from doing it, just make sure you don't end up halting your own progress by never experimenting.

Couldn't be bothered to find it, but I have an image somewhere on this computer where an artist actually got WORSE over a period of 6 years.

I'm not good at drawing myself, but apparently I'm a very good teacher. I have helped many aspiring artists get started, so if you want help I'll be glad to offer some. We always need more artists for the fandom!

7808c No.1078

The very first word of advice I can give you is too just keep drawing! Practice is the key.
Don't stop; just keep trying and experimenting over and over, regardless of how shitty you may be. Try new things, and try them dozens of times. Experiment with concepts. Attempt to copy styles you admire once you get a hang of the basics.
Even little thumb sketches are progress. Make a habit out of doodling for fun. Carry a sketchbook as a hobby if you prefer. If you practice any skill enough times, you're bound to get half-decent at it.
And don't ever get discouraged just because you're bad at it. If you suck, that just means you're not practicing enough. Don't quit because your first thought after scribbling for 10 mintues is 'I'm not any good at this'.

Since I've lived in southern US my whole life, I'm no stranger to sunburn. Usually I just leave it be and deal with it but if it's bothering you, put some lotion on it. Not much else to tell you than just after awhile in the hot blazing sun, your body will adjust to it in time.

Aloe Vera is good for taking away some of the pain as well as make it heal a bit quicker. Lotion should work too. Should be at any Walgreens or a similar drugstore.

A bad sunburn in my mind is a 2nd degree burn with blisters. If you have them, don't use any creams as they can hinder the healing process.

Frontiersmen survive at all costs. They battle blistering heat and scathing blizzards. They conquer mountains and bogs. They not only survive, but thrive in all manner of the toughest conditions mother nature throws his way. This is the ideal body type we should strive for.

Mass bulk for the sake of photos is merely another case study in societal decay and decadence. Fitness is for a greater purpose. We are not made for fitness; fitness is made for us. We must learn to master ourselves for the pursuit of higher goals.

I can't do it. Caring about MLP is suffering. Hasbro's going to keep on making it worse. People are waking up and seeing through the bullshit but nobody's doing anything about it. Nobody's willing to dox feminist doxers and report leftist criminals to the police. I've got a list of ideas to make "For Fun" because I have no job or life because my country is fucked and pozzed and already dead, and I can't bring myself to actually make any of it. I'm 25 years old and I feel like giving up on life. I held on and kept fighting and it never got better. I… never got better. I'm still just a beaten-down child waiting for his parents to burst in and tell him what to do.

most women like that just need a good rodgering and a man to set them straight like their father should have. Find one that's decently attractive and as unused as possible, seduce her, take charge and become the authority figure in her life. Women need to be trained to be submissive like an animal, women don't really have political opinions they just use emotional reasoning and group awareness to decide what it is they're expected to believe and they believe that, if you're dominant and strict you can decide for her what that is.

/üb/ is a Catholic board. Welcome friends, this is the prayer thread where we can gather on the Lord's day to pray for ourselves, each other, and read the bible. This is not a thread to debate theology, but feel free to start a thread like that on /mlpol/ and I'll be happy to explain our lord and savior Jesus Christ's love for you.

>what if I am protestant?

putting aside my personal feelings all Christians are of course welcome here:
acts 2:21
>And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.

>what if I'm not christian, a pagan, atheist, etc.

Remember the story of the prodigal son He rejected his father, asked for his inheritance before his father was even dead, took the inheritance - and left. Can you turn your back on someone any more than that? Did his father stop loving him? No. Does God ever stop loving you? NO. You may even fall away from your faith. When you come back, God will be there, still accepting you, still loving you. So I will not turn you away and I will pray for you to find your way back to Jesus.

Here's my daily bible verse for today, but feel free to contribute your own
Ephesians 5:1-2
>1 So be imitators of God, as beloved children, 2 and live in love, as Christ loved us and handed himself over for us as a sacrificial offering to God for a fragrant aroma.

healthy people don't need doctors anon, Jesus calls out not only to the righteous but especially to the sinners. That they might know how he loves them, confess, and repent for their sins against him. God does not ask you to be sinnless, to be human is to sin and he knows this, that's why he founded the Roman Catholic Church to guide us, and died on the cross for our salvation. God asks you to go to Church, pray, and seek his forgiveness for the sins you have committed against him. God will forgive you as many times as you sin and as many times as you come to him with sincere intentions.

How many times would you forgive others for betraying your trust? maybe once or twice, maybe a few extra chances if they were a friend or family member? But Jesus loves you so he advocates for limitless forgiveness.

Matthew 18:21-35
The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant
> 21 Then Peter approaching asked him, “Lord, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive him? As many as seven times?” 22 Jesus answered, “I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times. 23 That is why the kingdom of heaven may be likened to a king who decided to settle accounts with his servants. 24 When he began the accounting, a debtor was brought before him who owed him a huge amount. 25 Since he had no way of paying it back, his master ordered him to be sold, along with his wife, his children, and all his property, in payment of the debt. 26 At that, the servant fell down, did him homage, and said, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back in full.’ 27 Moved with compassion the master of that servant let him go and forgave him the loan. 28 When that servant had left, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a much smaller amount. He seized him and started to choke him, demanding, ‘Pay back what you owe.’ 29 Falling to his knees, his fellow servant begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.’ 30 But he refused. Instead, he had him put in prison until he paid back the debt. 31 Now when his fellow servants saw what had happened, they were deeply disturbed, and went to their master and reported the whole affair. 32 His master summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you your entire debt because you begged me to. 33 Should you not have had pity on your fellow servant, as I had pity on you?’ 34 Then in angPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Thank you, it was helpful to read that and know that the Lord will forgive me still, even if I commit the same sin again.

I know how you said that how healthy people dont need doctor, those already free from sin don't need to be freed from sin. But I still wish to pray that other be protected from the sins and sinners of the world. Surely a sinner can help protect those free from sin.

Participating in charity events is certainly one way of making connections, in fact it even helped me to land a job at my local poker house (as they were a major donor to the charity organization I was working with).

If anyone knows who Infinite Elgintensity is, you might be aware of one of his Q&As where someone asked for advice on attending college, now most of us recognize that college is not nearly as valuable as it used to be (hell, in most cases, it's an expensive waste of time), however, Elgin mentions that your main objective while attending is to engage in networking should you make the decision to go (lord knows I failed to do that while I was there, despite being given all the greatest opportunities to do so). I'd imagine this would especially apply to students pursuing a law degree.

If you're working, performing well at your job and getting the attention of your superiors is a given, if you can make friends with the owners of the company you're working for, that will, at the very least, be a great boon for your reputation. Find ways to spend time with the top dogs in your company, for example, I go to the gym with the partners that own the poker house I work for. (Obviously, this will be much more difficult to do in larger organizations)

>>797
I once read on Identity Dixie about "Rotary" and "Ruritan" clubs, that might also be something you'll want to look into, provided your community has organizations like that. Again, that falls into the charity work advice.
