Hey guys just finishing decorating my apartment what do y'all think?
did you burn your mouth as an infant? I'm just asking because it seems like you have no taste at all
Well, i like the works of Jurikoi,
What think you, guys?
How do I stop these jittery lines in Photoshop it seems the more I zoom out the worse it gets.
We have a lot of infighting on this subreddit. I think it's high time we go to the basics of social learning, kindergarten. So I/C whats you're favourite colours?
Does anyone go to any?
its all there is where I live, It's hard for me to get into contemporary art rarely I see something that impresses me or comes to my liking.
I usually just imaging what was gong through the artists mind when making their art piece and thinking why
I can't seem to find any near me. I went to emerge in DC a few years ago, and I loved the idea of each hotel room being like a portal into an artist's mind. Some just hung their work, some transformed the space or fit their work within it. It was eerie, like crossing in and out of universes.
I want to experience that again.
There's an opera festival in my town every year and a lot of art fairs happen around that time. They don't have great turnouts usually and there's a lot of boring Sunday painter landscapes and stuff, but you can always expect to see something creative and interesting, and count on a few rich foreign people who've come to see the operas to buy a painting or two for their 16th sitting room.
I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this or not, since I've never done this before, but I recently decided to open up commissions. Since I'm just starting out with this, I started the prices of low and decided to build them up over time. So, get them well they're hot, I suppose!
Pic related - it's a sample piece
I m curious to know your opinion about urban art
It usually boils down to two categories:
1. Crudely drawn cartoons and letters that would get zero attention if drawn on paper.
2. Left-wing propaganda, usually in the form of stencils.
Love it, street art, graffiti, stenciling, wheatpaste, anything the anarchist's cookbook can teach you to do. I'm all for it.
I hate Banksy tho, and shepard fairey is kind of pushing it as well, lately.
A lot of the street art community are just special snowflakes trying to pose as Anonymous-type figures who think they're better than everyone else.
And I'm sure I'm not the only one whose sick of new kids trying to be cool and edgy by calling everyone a sheep to "the capitalist machine". so nowadays i'm more interested in graffiti....
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Decided I'd share with you guys my art work. Critique on how I can make them better.
Are there any artists in here who are struggling to get their works discovered?
I'm so underground that I'm thinking of actually going the opposite direction and trying to be ultra unknown and actually making a name for myself that way. no social media, no tumblr, no anything. just my domain, and email interactions with clients.
maybe that gives me a little mystery bonus.
Best fully posable figure for referencing basic human poses? Pic definitely not related, this thing isn't nearly flexible enough. Looking for something fully posable and articulate.
sup /ic/ might be in the wrong board but I figure artfags would have more knowledge on this. Is screen printing a business worth investing in? I only have about 200 bucks to use and I'm looking into a screen printing kit + materials. I'm mainly looking into making patches and shirts. I don't have a job or any income coming my way and I realize I gotta spend money to make money. thoughts?
Do you have art and design skills? You sound like you don't have any silkscreen experience yet. Do you have business and marketing skills?
You know, this could be a fun and profitable small business, but I gotta be honest with you: don't spend you last $200 bucks expecting to figure out how to make a reliable income on shirts. Save up $1,000 doing a shitty part time job or something, while you work on your designs, then play around with printing and selling. You can find a niche market, but this isn't the 90's anymore.
But yeah. Go for it. You just don't have enough money to get it going now.
I have a decent pull as I do a little promotion/marketing on the side. My idea is to start off printing merch for local bands and selling them in bulk while having my own online store for everything else (also want to have my own recognizable brand of clothing eventually)
Any tips on how to do watercolor over graphite without smudging everything to shit?
Can you use workable fixative before painting?
I do my drawing on cardboard, then trace it onto tracing paper. I transfer my drawing to my watercolor paper using architects transfer paper which is like graphite paper but is not as dirty. I than have a good solid drawing which may or may not be seen in the finished painting depending on how transparent my finished painting is. I have used this system for years, sometimes using graphite if I want fainter lines. I rarely if ever draw on my watercolour paper.
If you want to use a fixative, make sure you sketch with a hard graphite, 2b and harder should be fine, and only apply a reeeeeeally light application of fixative otherwise you're going to interfere with your paper's ability to absorb pigment.
I would recommend experimenting first on some scrap paper before you commit to a larger piece.
Im not sure if I want to finish this sketch as an oil painting, It was a concept from a friend, and I think its good? but I dont know so thoughts?
Im starting to learn how to draw with a tablet in PS and I dont want to fall to bad habits.
Should I get any of those pencil brushes for sketching or just use the standard ones?
Im not really feeling confortable with the default brushes but at the same time I know once I learn something I stay with it for years. It happened me in 3Dmax or zbrush.
Which are your personal choices?
brushes literally don't matter for shit
There is nothing you can't draw or paint with just the built-in brushes
if you feel some other brushes are more comfy or work better for you, use them, but don't waste more time on thinking about brushes than you have to, it's just procrastination and won't improve your art or skill in any way
ITT: Fucked up art.
Artist who go too far
