Didn't go to SUNY Fit but I went to SUNY ACC so I'm only commenting here to warn people to never go to SUNY ACC in Queensbury, NY. It's garbage. The teachers are meh, the staff is absolutely retarded. Just don't do it.

I expect nothing good to come out of this but whatever.

I used to -try- to draw something pretty, spending hours on polishing a turd.

Now I just consider it an expendable hobby and anything that takes more than 1 hour is a bad case.

So the question is, what, if any, practices are sensible to adopt that doesn't stretch the time window yet still open up for improvement? Adjusted for low ambitions preferably, Surely I'd benefit from spending 700 hours studying X but my ambitions here are to populate drawthreads more than high end new york galleries.

tl;dr...

No matter what, if you want to draw at least somewhat decently you'll need to study some fundamentals or use reference. There is no secret ingredient to making you work take less time or look better without practice.

Art is a skill and skills take time to learn, improve upon and perfect.

Want a sensible practice? Do some gesture before you sit down to draw. Good for warmup, especially if you plan to draw people.

The faster you stop fighting it and just learn the fundamentals the better...

Character design ref page.png
3 MB,
What's most important for character design? I have an idea on how I like the character's to look but I'm having trouble with some of the more masculine ones and differentiating their facial features. Some are easier than others due to how different I've made the eyes face shape of body design. I would like to create a comic for a story that's been written. What are some things I can do to get better grasp of the characters before going in to combing them in to a composition for comic. Will be posting more character references for who will be included....

Stop making OCs

Use photo references of real people and draw caricatures of their facial features. Draw costumes from many different cultures and time periods in order to build a repertoire of visual cues. Do gesture drawings to get comfortable with anatomy and poses. Don't be afraid to radically redesign something if its not coming together.

What is required bare minimum for the fucks on ic to NOT label something as symbol drawing? Based on what I have seen, people can construct a face, no shading, just the lines/etc. And people would be quick to say OMG SYMBOL DRAWING. Or that one dude who drew an eye, no shading, people were shitting on him going omg symbol drawing, when he clearly stated he didn't render the eye/was drawing what he saw.

Why is this board so shitpost oriented?

Yoo. I'd like some advice. I've been trying to break into digital painting now for a while, and i'm just not very good at it. For illustration, it's always just clicked naturally the more i practice, and I never really needed instruction. Just having fun with it was more efficient than being taught.

It seems like this is NOT the case for digital painting. I keep trying and it's just not getting to that point where i'm good enough that i can try new things and have fun with it.

Also, this is probably because I started with pen/ink...

This is probably the best thing i've painted without lineart, and i couldn't do it again if i tried. Also relying on one color is the only reason it looks halfway decent.

I am completely lost on this, I have to write a formal analysis on Claude Monet's "Fisherman's Cottage on the Cliffs at Varengeville"

I am having a hard time finishing. It has to be 4 pages, I am at 2 and completely stuck.

talk about the history behind the piece, techniques & medium used, compostion (i.e. shape design, value structure, color relationships/temperature, placement of light and shadow etc...) compare it to other pieces of his work & that of other impressionists, analyze the critical response.
or just do what every liberal arts student does and make up random bullshit.

>>2412752
thanks, this helps. I'll try to do some of both.
>>
>>2412752
Wow, no that's exactly what you do not write about in a formal analysis. You're focusing on the work and the work alone, OP. Pretend like it was created in a vacuum. Write about how the artist uses the elements of art, how they complement each other or which ones he uses dominantly. Start generally then work your way down to specifics. I usually start with composition, then eye direction, color, and finally brushwork for a Monet.

Seriously, fuck auto desk. I paid for their app back then and now they made it free with IAP for the same old features. Right now, artflow is my fav because it stimulates pen pressure even if you have no pressure sensitive screen. it also has a lot of nice pen modes for free. if i were to compare it to a desktop software it would be similar to corel painter and you can simulate the traditional feel. medibang is good for what it's worth (free) but the pen pressure isn't as good. if you only draw stylized medibang is good. Both have layers mode and all that shit.

This is Medibang. and I'm testing the main pens and brushes ...and I'm seriously fed up with it. I tried using the save function but i couldn't find anything in my document list. Also notice the strokes, they're pretty clean and vector-esque. I tried applying the same force variation to all of them.

How do you clean, store, and generally maintain your stuff? Do you have your own eccentric way or do you stick with convention (whatever the hell that may be)?

Kind of a dumb question but I just bought one of these things to sharpen my charcoal pencils and I was wondering if anyone else had any experience with them. I was thinking of getting a toothbrush (because they're cheap and waterproof) to sweep the charcoal off as much as possible and then I could just keep it in a plastic bag maybe. Is that weird?

>going along with this tools for artsy fartsy people is not good for your health.

Believe me I know.

Even if I got the throw away ones I'd still have to store them until they got wore out though. I already have this thing so I need to figure out how to work with it for the time being, it works great but the charcoal really gets caked on there and I don't want to throw it in with the rest of my stuff in that condition. Maybe I'm just being neurotic.

I'm trying to find a chinese realist/impressionist painter, I think I saw his work on facebook a year or two back. His work was masterful and had very complex compositions involving a lot of people. I remember a scene on a ship, similar to pick related but painted beautifully. Any cool ass anons know who I might be talking about?

It doesn't include a location, which is a problem. Is the graphic in the middle representative of the kind of art that'll be shown there? If not, I would advise swapping it out for a sample of a piece at the show. Also this may be a personal preference, but I would get rid of the drop shadow at least on the names and musical guest lines.

Also it's a personal pet peeve in graphic design when a new font is used on every line, but that's just me.

Drop all the shadows behind logos and typography. That shit is tacky as fuck and looks like it came straight out of the 90s. Especially that ugly shadow inside the logo on the top is ridiculous.

Also, too many fucking fonts. Stick to 3 at most. I'd also drop the Mickie and Chauncey font. It's a pretty terrible sans serif. The black gradient around the shape is also distasteful.
