When is it best to draw with your wrist, and when is it best to draw with your arm? I hear life-drawing is better done with your arm, so is there a similar rule with drawing the wrist?
There are no rules when it comes to subject. Drawing with your arm is convenient when the format is large, and you have to draw big strokes. As the stroke get smaller so does the wrist come more in play.
Don't overthink this, just do what's easiest.
Quit the theorycrafting, /ic/. James Stokoe draws like this.
I finished this like half an hour ago and i want you to tell me how shitty it is. Thanks
And don't sign something that you know has problems.
I dunno if this board is just for drawing or not bu I'm working on this linoleum print. Need a suggestion for a word or logo to fill the space. I want to do a big block Japanese movie poster style font but I don't know what to write. Want something aggressive but no too edgy. I'm thinking along the lines of "rage", "unleash" or something biblical like "euangelion" or "legion"
Guys I'm in need of Steve Huston's: "Drawing a Male Figure with Charcoal and Conté Crayon" tutorial.
e.g this one: newmastersacademy org/drawing-male-figure-charcoal-conte-crayon/
Last I checked it was on youtube, but it has been removed since then. I've looked around for it, but I can't seem to find it, not on cgpeers either. So if anyone has it, care to share it, please? Sorry that I had to make a whole thread. Pic related.
Hey guys, any critique or thoughts? Just found my passion for drawing so i am not that good at it
Is tracing for commissions bad?
I'm just starting art and the books I've browsed when out at the book store say to draw with your arm. I wrote almost exclusively using my wrist for a very long time (and now I type a lot, which is even less arm-intensive), and I'm trying to break the habit.
Is there any time where drawing with your wrist is useful? Or should I just unlearn the habit now and reintroduce it when I'm at that level in drawing?
Also do you guys draw full figures/objects even if you aren't good and also study basic forms? I've been trying to just draw forms...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You should only be using your wrist for the small details, and even then you shouldn't be focusing on those until you're better. If you feel you need to get those details in, draw bigger or use larger paper.
When drawing the basic forms, you should also be trying to apply them to objects and people around you. It doesn't help if you just try to learn something and never apply it.
If your drawing digital you can get by doing everything with your wrist because you can always just zoom out. But it will definitely be easier in the long run to use your shoulder and elbow.
What I'm looking for is basically
that lets me pick a photo or portion of a photo and creates a gradient map out of it thats usable in Photoshop. I basically want to skip the manual color picking and having to create the gradient map from ground up myself every time.
Do you guys knows of anything that does this?
"This robot bears the distinction of the second sketch I ever digitized using Illustrator.
I created it in my sketchbook during one of my classes, and then redrew it using Adobe Illustrator 10.
It ended up being part of the main flyer for a band called Pagoda.
The robot is a soldier drone with limit cognitive abilities, characterized by oversized limbs and a small head. However, because it relies heavily on a central command unit, it is easily intercepted reprogrammed.
I need to get two art pieces done; one for the cover of a collection of old stories I want to remaster from when I was a kid, and one for an unrelated project. I'm not good at art, and I've seen progress threads showing the average time it takes to git gud as being around 9 years.
I'm wondering if it's possible, given you study your particular subject of the piece enough, to draw artwork that is abnormally high quality for your actual skillset?
Hey guys, this is my first time posting on /ic/ and this is my first time using a graphics tablet and my laptop to make 'art'. Please critique.
What am I doing wrong, what am I doing right?
Keep in mind that this is my very first time doing inking and painting (not just using a tablet, ive never painter or inked before) so please let me down easy. Thanks guys.
So I got the brush pack and the only ones I used are the pencils, block, concept, smoke, watercolor, hard texture, and oil pastel. I can't figure out how when and how you're supposed to use brushes like 9 lines and the flat brushes. Can someone point me in the right direction?
Also generic brush pack thread? Looking for good csp brushes to paint mecha in.
