Why do so many artists draw their characters with red nose now? I mean, portraits have always had red noses with subtle blending to not stick out and cartoon characters have had red noses from time to time (Bert & Ernie, Billy & Mandy, Seven Dwarves) but now it's like everyone and their grandmother makes their character look like they have a cold.

Why? What started this phenomenon?

It's a fad/trend.

Same reason people had that whole mustache craze, a few people did it well and it looked good so everyone started to emulate it. It's difficult to pinpoint exactly who popularized it, or if it even was an individual.
>>
>>2401056
this is really getting out of hand
>>
male artists vehemently pretending to not understand the trend is probably the most embarrassing part of the trend.

red nose = cold
cold = cozy
red nose = cozy

it's not fucking rocket science.

Anyone have any tips for showing material/ texture at various distances using only pen? Like if I was drawing an old building from far, I wouldn't know how to simplify the brick texture that you would see if you were closer.

Probably worded this shit very poorly. Hopefully it makes a little sense.

>>
>>2392398
even with pen and ink, you still gotta use atmospheric perspective, so most likely you won't see the texture.

How long should I spend reading Keys to Drawing? It's been a monthish and I'm on chapter 3, almost 4, and I don't want to spend ages on the book if moving on is better.

Any suggestions would be helpful!

How does one go about learning to draw landscapes? Most of the books and tutorials recommended here are about figure drawing and gesture drawing, and I feel like they're not helping me a lot when it comes to drawing landscapes and backgrounds.

>>
>>2409959
Well, obviously.

But when you're learning to draw people, you'll usually work on fundamentals such as anatomy, construction, and so on. I was wondering if there are similar principles for landscape drawing other than perspective.
>>
>>2409965

I guess that's why I don't consider anatomy a fundamental. It's exactly the same really. Just that now you have to manage edges more carefully, think about materials more, shadows. Big new issues you might have as someone who studied figures primarily: composition, simplification of stuff (like bunch of leaves etc), value key, and like you said perspective.

I just don't think theres any way around failing a million times to learn it. Nothing you'll read anywhere will help.

hey /ic/

this keeps on happening in PS with my new bamboo tablet.

try going into every option menu you can find and turn off 'double-click' or whatever it's called. There's option menus in devices in the control panel if you're using windows. Hope that helps. Had the same thing happen and it was infuriating and took forever to figure out what was causing it.

There's already an anime thread so you will get yelled at for not posting in there.
But here goes with a critique:
There is wrinkling of the paper and leftover grey from the level adjustment. You should ink your drawings to make the black and whites crisp.
The pencil lines have chickenscratch. They should be smooth strokes.
The perspective is all wrong on the computer desk and monitor and the edges are not straight. Use a ruler and put perspective lines to help keep them nice.
The face has no structure....

I'm looking for the artist of the following or similar artists, who use unconventional color for portrait painting, to study.

Also, since observational drawing is "so much better for improvement" how can one successfully paint a portrait from observation without much inconvenience to the subject of the painting?

>>2409963

Try searching Francoise Nielly. I think this kinda style is pretty tacky and played-out looking, but whatever floats your boat.

As for portraits, you should be able to get a friend, family member, or partner to sit for a portrait while they read or watch TV. If not, I often do quick portraits of people in coffeeshops. Obviously they will be moving around (plus you'll look creepy), but that can help since it requires some application of knowledge rather than simply copying what you see.

I'm finding that the eraser responds much better to pressure sensitivity than the brushes themselves.
This means that if I want to paint something on lightly, I have to start by painting it too heavily then erase away gently, which seems ridiculous.
I tried setting my brush density (equivalent of flow in photoshop I think) really low but that hasn't helped. What do?

Click pen pressure box for your eraser tool, make sure curve is linear/same as your brushes or pens.
>>
>>2410201
Go to File>Pen Pressure Settings and mess with that until it feels right.

that would change pressure sensitivity for brushes too
