New WIP Sticky: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VfDTpLLVl5bWUGWguswKpPFml533luI8-NBd1EGYHnA/edit?pref=2&pli=1
When I am drawing from life, it can take me up to two/three hours to fill a page with what's in front of me (mild detail). Is this too long? Does anyone else here like to fill pages with urban sketching? How long do you spend on a whole page sketch of your view?
can we make her a d/ic/k?
she can be our new mascot.
get in here, help convince her.
Am I crazy for really liking this? It's kind-of-but-not-reallly like a brush pen, but the tip is quite hard so I find it easier to not shake. And it's cheap as balls.
Cheap pen thread general?

I really like this one. Very simple, nothing fancy. and you can get 12 of them for like 16$ at amazon. Lasts at least a few months.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a good screen capture program thats lightweight? (and free)
I use to be able to record my screen with quicktime while drawing a 300 res file in photoshop with minimal problems. Im not sure if its cause i have a cintiq now and that takes extra memory but its impossible for me to run both quicktime and photoshop together now. I am on an older iMac tho.
I use Camstudio. It's free, quick and easy install, instantly compresses and converts the recording to one of a bunch of file types you choose from, and I had no trouble running it while using photoshop and I'm on a really basic ass laptop that has an offbrand graphics card. Ironically the laptop can't handle any video editing software.
I'm offering to complete requests for people who ask me on my art blog, and the requests are pretty simple drawings, but it's making me not want to draw any more. I lose any drive to create even simple sketches because the subject matter isn't what I'm interested in. I get too many requests now to draw what I want to.
However, I do realize that it's important to appeal to others for novice artists to gain popularity.
I was wondering, does anyone here do requests? how do you handle them?
There's no obligations to do requests. As far as popularity goes I'd say doing fanart is more productive for getting noticed than doing requests.
Usually when I do requests I go to the /tg/ drawthread and look for ideas I like. The requests aren't directed at me and there's no pressure to do them, you just do what seems fun.
Unless I'm actually friends with the person asking I wouldn't feel at all bad not filling a request I don't like. Nigga can pay me if he wants me to draw it that much.
Can we have a handwriting/calligraphy thread?
Post examples of your writing and discuss.
Pic pulled off google.

I too pulled some handwriting off google. Please discuss it OP.
The reason I didn't post my own off the bat was because it's pretty shit and I feared it'd just derail the thread right away. I see now that picking a silly one off google invites shitposters all the same.
We had a good thread on this subject a few weeks ago.
Hey /ic/ sorry if this is vague and uneducated, but does anyone know the name of the style, technique, or process for creating these kinds of portraits? I mean more or less the presidential bill portraits or a style that seems popular in the 1800s. I'm trying to create something that emulates them but I'm too ignorant to properly research anything.
Anything more specific? Am I just seeing a style that isn't really there?
Just starting out with this and just want some advice, the person is Touka from Tokyo Ghoul fyi.
Study more anatomy anon. Go back to the basics really. Her head is way too small. Honestly the body isn't -horrible- so study faces and heads. Every single facial feature on her isn't where it should be.
>tfw you still not >still better than %x of ic
I'm mostly an anime waifu drawfag, I love to draw anime girls.
But lately, I'm heavily interested into learning to draw cartoon girls and comic girls.
It's there any artist that tries to mix those three styles?
can /ic/ post anything like it?
pic related is some style I would love to learn to draw.
but it won't do any harm if you draw /co/ waifus on your anime style, what is making you go from anime to toons anyway? i don't think it worths changing your aesthetics just because of your new waifu.
dear people, quick question.
Although I know charcoal pencils (in specific generals charcoal pencils) is better on textured paper, I'm wondering if I can still make it work on standard printing paper.. Is it possible?
Didn't see one, so here it is.
Post your work.
It's unfinished, but I just wanted to know if I was headed in the right direction.
