I got high and started making artwork, how is it?
>tfw you just don't have the "spark"
"This robot bears the distinction of the first 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.
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."
First post over here on /ic/. I recently "finished" my most successful painting so far, but I hit a dead end on how to improve it further. Thoughts?
it's a horrific mess. no composition, no understanding of value nor color, topped off with absolute beginner technique.
if you mean how can you improve the painting, you can't really at this point.
if you mean how can you improve your actual skill level you need to start from the absolute beginning. check the sticky out for recommended reads
"""The most completely wasted of all days is that in which we have not laughed.""
The full quote, translated reads: ""I admire the man who exclaimed, “I have lost a day!” because he had neglected to do any good in the course of it; but another has observed that ""The most completely wasted of all days is that in which we have not laughed;"" and, I must confess, that I feel myself greatly of his opinion."""
I am working on a Rpyalty Free PNG File Site for Creative People at:

Why are so many art resources and artists online who kind of combine art advice with life advice seem like they are talking to incompetent, autistic children?
I'm 25 with a career and romance and friends but I feel like none of these videos are speaking to people in my situation. Are "normal" people really in the minority of people who want to draw?
art is a career path that relys on resilience, the hardest thing of art is not to understand its theroy but to manage the process of learning the most fruitful way
If you think you're not in a position to require life advice you completly lack humility and you're probably suffering dunning-kruger effect and should post your shitty art, so this thread is at least funny
any good pencil shadind tutorials/resources to get nice clean value range?
So, I've been watching Bob Ross and decided to try my hand at this.
Spent about $100 at Michaels for some supplies (the brushes I regret, because they were cheap shit and didn't work well for me) and followed along (to the best as I could cause hes fast as shit) with Season 25 Episode 1, and this was my sorta... end result that didn't quite hit 'complete' but I sorta stopped after I started second guessing myself and rather than trying to fix what I had felt I did wrong, left it be so as to not mess up things worse.
So, as a first time...

What is your favorite reference book?

I'm literally retarded and have no idea how drawing programs even work. I tried using GIMP for hours now and couldn't entirely grasp it, and I'm having fucking trouble just copying and pasting things in KRITA. I'm absolutely penniless and this ancient Wacom tablet I dug up in the attic of an old house I'm using is almost down to the nib and I don't even have a weedwacker trimmer I can use to replace it. I'm trying to draw some images for this cause I'm trying to contribute to and I'm literally retarded on how to even use these computer programs. Help.
Have you tried watching YouTube videos? You'd be surprised how much information you could find by just looking for it. That being said you shouldn't expect someone to just explain everything for you.
I don't know who the artist of this is, but I love their stuff. They said they had a particular disorder that made them incapable of developing their skills or something.
Found the person on 4chan.
I made a art.
not my usual kind of thing, comissioned by a friend who runs a novelty tshirt/mug/phone cover site.
however as soon as i posted it on my facebook it got 5x as many likes as any of my other pieces and 3 requests to buy prints within 24hours.
I enjoyed making so it would make sense to do some more, kinda feel like im bandwagon-hopping though.
guess this is current-day pop art?
anyone else mess with this kind of ridiculousness?
>If you're not going against what you stand for, sure
it felt like it at first, but then I used some of my own photos of friends dancing at festivals etc
guess theres nothing wrong with following the mainstream/trends if you're owning it and putting plenty of your own personality in there
Hi, I would like if anyone gave me some gorey art for ideas for a story I'm making.
