Hello, I'm Frank Bacon. What's happening in art these days?
Are you able to get the same professional look from a water brush as from a traditional brush? I'm just starting and the convienence of an aquabrush and watercolor pans appeals a lot more to me than tubes and throbbing hairy wooden brushes.
yeah, man. you can get a professional look from aqua brushes and pans, just like you can get a professional look from tubes and wooden brushes. (I find pentel make great aqua brushes, and for pans, that depends on your style. personally I use koi watercolors, cause they are a lot more saturated.)
Watercolor artist here. Waterbrushes are awesome, if you're just starting out go with them because they're so convenient and nice to use. And they're pretty much necessary if you want to work outside.
Waterbrushes are different tools and they feel quite different from regular brushes. You can't lift wet paint with a waterbrush (you need a dry brush for that) so you'll have to compensate with a dry sponge or paper towel.
I personally find them annoying at times because I'm...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
why do you all still come here? i pop in every few months or so for morbid curiosity or to pick through the reference threads, and the amount of pure shitflinging amazes me every time. am I missing something? isn't your time better spent elsewhere?
You could say tat about any board.
4chan is made for people with too much time on their hands.
No one actually productive comes here regularly.
I still come cause I get more honest critique here than I do anywhere else. No one's afraid to tell me my work is shit, and what I need to work on. Everyone else tries to sugarcoat it too much.
This is a filthy frank painting. 1. Is it good? 2. Would it sell and for how much
how did you learn to draw?
Chris Hart's cancerous books. then I went to art school and unlearned that shit.
How do you manage to draw for more than 2 hours everyday ?
Drawing is awesome, the problem is that I just get bored after some time.
I listen to audiobooks. I always want to know what will happen next and I don't want to listen to audiobooks while doing nothing, so I keep drawing.
How can one guy be so based?
and some people on this board think if you just work hard enough you'll be just as good!
>talent ain't real
Hey /ic, I made a thing again. Tell me what you think.
Made a little adjustment, I don't know if this is better. It's just different.
Why do I even post here, /ic must be the biggest fucking collection of idiot fucktards in the history of mankind. You think every "flaw" is because of a lack in skill, you don't see what the person intended or not. You strive for some form of perfection that can be found in textbooks and classical paintings, but fail to see that isn't what the creator is going for. You fucking pricks need to get of your high horse, and instead of bitching and critiquing and being mad as fuck just admit not only am I talented I'm rad as fuck.
REILLY > LOOMIS
I agree but it's very hard to find a step by step explanation of the reilly method. I have the Ron Lemen dvds and he explains it somewhat but less in depth than loomis does his method in his books. Reilly must've been an amazing teacher, too bad most of his teachings were lost to time.
Does anyone know of any meme's that originated here?
My personal favorite /ic/ meme is "angry toad" he's really angry
>No one has posted the grandaddy of /ic/ memes
Can I get a critique on my art plz?
A bit too anime, consider studying loomis (book links are in the sticky) you would benefit from learning how things look in real life and getting a grasp on how it works then simplifying it down,
>If you're learning art self-directed and drawing the same thing over and over to practice, you're shit. Come join our school
Is it a meme? The before-and-after is astounding. What exactly is the "one weird tip" that self-directed learners aren't understanding?
Why do you fags always bash on him for advertising in his free lessons (they're more like pep talks / bits of useful info)
And he never says anything like, "you'll never be good unless you come to my school."
Hi guys. So, the thing is I always drawn using different kinds of pencil, mechanical pencil and all, doing realistic portrait and things like that. But I always wanted to learn how to see colors, how to apply them on my drawings. Recently I bought 27 copics to see how it goes, but I've seen people using them and colored pencil at the same time. Can you guys help me out? Is there some book to learning how to do that? What materials do you use it? What do you recommend?
This board is rather slow so no need to bump.
I think what you want to look into is a technique called rendering. It's what is typically done to get more realistic looking illustrations/portraits.
I'm not very knowledgeable in the topic though since I've just recently started applying colour to my line art as well but hopefully it gives you something to look into.
