How can I make my digital art seem more painterly? I want the brushstrokes to be visible.
I'm on SAI but experimenting with the brish effects and textures isn't archiving what I want.
Anyone has examples of digital artists that are painterly? dosn't need to be something crazy just digital art with visible brushstrokes.
Mess with settings and brush downloads more. It would be easier to help if you used photoshop or corel or something
Also- what type of painterly do you want to be? You might as well look at classical paintings and look at the original stuff before just straight up studying other digital artists who came to their own stylistic conclusions
tldr- study physically painted work you admire, do studies based off of them / emulate them, then try what you learned on something original
or, y'know, buy some irl paint and skip digital. why force it.
Painterly like pic related
I have to give Corel Painter a try, I've seen people do really mellow stuff with it.
I tried photosho but it was very memory intensive and behaved in unexpected ways
What makes art "good" /ic/?
I was taught that and all art is subjective and considered to be "good" when the artist portrays his or her intended emotions through a piece. Is this right or wrong?
I think there should be a distinction made between good art and skilled art. Someone who's art is technically great might be stiff and not very good while someone who needs more education might produce something full of life that you want to see more of when they do improve.
Does that make sense?
It is highly subjective.
I'd say it's a mix of fundamental skill, portrayal of the desired mood, and visual appeal. Of course none of these can be quantified and each viewer has a different perception, so you can't objectify what is good art.
I'd say that the piece you posted is bad based on skill, but it no doubt was very meaningful to the painter and it has historic value. Does that make it good? That's up to you to decide.
Someone successfully portraying their emotions doesn't make their emotions compelling or worthwhile. This is the fundamental idea that many contemporary artists are unable to grasp.

Draw the grudge lady, but super cute.
I want to know if someone know about this signature
what does /ic/ think of pseudo intelligent images?
for me it looks like people who want to catch easy followers that want to feel "alternative and intelligent" by saying "this is so deep so real"...
Asking the question and then answering it in one post. What is this thread for, again?
I mean, if you can sell some prints going with these "alternative and intelligent" ideas, then go for it. Make that money. We all know that the insights offered by this shit are about as deep as "cake tastes good."
I honestly couldnt give a shit. It's not the worst thing I've seen drawn and if it gives someone some mild form of entertainment to look at it, by all means. It's not really to my taste but a lot of things exist that I don't care for.
Here's a few sketches I did for my first short erotica novel. This is my first artistic endeavour and I could use a little feedback, i.e. how to be less shiyte
Where to buy artwork online as in digital files?
I need ideas as to what to paint. Im at a blank. Ive been wondering here for 6. Hours. Black geso on canvas board. You're my last hope!
What are some good resources for b/w images for value studies?
What the fuck is this shit
And I thought those golden spiral images were shit
The composition of that image is obviously a much simpler

Making shit complicated just makes it more complicated, not better
Hey, /ic/. I have something called dysgraphia, which basically minds I can't draw for shit. I've always been embarrassed by my handwriting, and when I was in highschool I avoided art class at all costs.
Recently I've been trying to channel some creative energy into a new medium and I'm curious what other people think.
I am in the process of writing a fantasy novel and am getting stuck. I would like to know if there is anyone who is full of ideas or at least willing to give a style to the characters I created and maybe make mini comics or animations?
Just someone with similar aspirations
I have pages of brainstorms and samples and a pretty structured out 'diagram' but I feel that I could use a loyal friend to reach goals with.

Considering getting an iPad pro with a cell plan today $45 a month for 24 months. I'm not worried about the long run price, I can't dish out 600- 1000 so this is my only choice. I'm trying to do art for a personal game in working on, is the pro up to par with those standards if not recommendations? Also had to be something I can pay for over time.

do yourself a favor and give up apple
Is it true that if you think your art is awful (finding all the flaws) you are improving? I've been like this for a while, and I'm currently been plateauing, but making slight (slivers of) improvement.
Pic related is some shit I threw together in 4 seconds.
no i don't think so. there is no real correlation there.
the opposite however, that you are not improving if you see no flaws in your work ever, can be said with certainty.
so if you see a ton of stuff that sucks in your work you still need to take action to improve those aspects in your next image.
if you can see that the stuff you make is off or not what your vision was, AND you can take the same idea and improve on it in an iterative fashion, then you are improving
recognizing that you suck and continuing to make the same mistakes is not improvement
