This is so freaky, I wanted to make this exact thread like a few weeks ago. I was going to post a random animal generator link. I tried it but I kind of fucked myself on the one I did at first so I might try again later. Here's the generator I used though. https://www.randomlists.com/random-animals
You have to change it to show 1 animal and cover up the picture area so you can just read the name without seeing the reference.

I would personally go with graphic design. I am a graphic artist working in Cincinnati and there are always jobs around. There is also opportunities to freelance on the side for small businesses needing a logo designed or even art for a website.

picking a college and choosing a major won't affect the rest of your life. your attitude will. whatever you pick, just know that it's absolutely up to you to do the work, learn, and grab the opportunities.

if you're straight up looking for a job, just get an associates degree in graphic design and just go find internships and/or a job. save money, save time, be an adult. i bet by the time you graduate with a 4-year degree, your degree isn't going to get you a lot of places, because...

Is there such a thing has a bob ross of portraits? I painted along with him for a couple of episodes and was very happy with the results. You quickly understand how dark and light interact to create the exact shape he's looking for. I then tried to make a female head but was still stuck in a loop of "this is too dark/light" and blending everything together, not knowing where to put the sharp lines of dark and light.

The 25 minute format is also very fun to follow because of how quick he is. You're working on something different every 2 minutes so it's...

Friends with a girl who paints. Wanted to get her a gift for valentine's. I was thinking about a decent set of brushes or some such, but I don't really know anything about painting. Was hoping I could get a few recommendations or at least pointed in the right direction? Or other gift ideas are welcome too

Thanks for any help

Has anyone tried this?

The other day I was doing some bs team building exercises with some coworkers each one had to do something with some generic play-doh I ended up making a quite characteristic female torso just using my hands and a bic pen cap and I was extremely surprised by how intuitive the whole thing was,

Before this I had the idea that sculpting was a considerably different beast now I'm not saying that it must be easy but I can imagine it helping me to grasp form and perspective much faster and perhaps even making something decent stuff in the...

Just use super sculpey for your first sculptures.
Also get some aluminium or steel wire for armatures.
Idk where you live, but a store like Michaels has cheap wooden bases/plaques for about a dollar.

Also get some screws/washers for attaching your armature to the base.

Tin/Aluminium foil is also good for bulking large masses to reduce clay usage and reduces weight.

Then, when you're done, you can bake them, paint them or even cast them if you so desire.

General art discussion thread on how to define art.

What important qualities does art have to have in order to be considered art ?

What do you consider important aspects of art that you can consider it good? ______ +______= good art

What artists/works/genres is a good example of your opinions on what art is/isn't?

Discussion of all types of media (fine art, sculpture, digital art etc.) welcome.

I've been oil painting for years, but all i ever use is oil paint straight from the tube. I always notice entire isles in the art store full of oil painting mediums and stuff and it's just been too overwhelming to wrap my head around. What are mediums and should I be using them?

Shitposted on /ic/.

Pretty benign really, and my shitposting was more "get mad at tripfags" than anything.

I'm not really that vindictive, mostly I'm cool with other artists doing their thing as long as they don't get too up their ass.

Post your current drawing here and give constructive critique to others!

Please make sure your posted image is clear, downsized to around 1000 pixels wide, rotated to the correct orientation, and that any unused space is cropped.
If you want critique on a drawing from the previous thread, you can delete it there and repost in this one.

So i'm confused.

Growing up I was always told that tracing a picture makes you a bad artist.

Yet now some people tell me theres nothing wrong with it and it helps you learn.


Whats the deal?
Is tracing a good learning skill or is it cheap??

Given my skill level (my fundamentals are shit i mostly just rework stuff until it looks ok) should i continue art or not. I am going to post a piece i found...

Wait, so you're telling me that you just draw on other people work, to make it look better, I mean, how exactly is that drawing. If you decide to do art seriously, how would you get payed to do anything, outside of fixing somebody else's work

Do you have any art done from your imagination?

What does your finished work look like compared to the original?

I just don't understand.

Nigga, if you find enjoyment in it, just do art as a hobby.

What are your goals if you do pursue art?
