I dont know if these board can help but can anyone remove this watermark?
Do any of you know any good artists who combine traditional and digital?
I love sketching and linework but I don't want to color tradtionally, I like digital color but want to keep the same sketchy line feeling and damn I have no idea how.
Do people even do that ever?
My first piece. Discuss
cool that you're experimenting with digital effects, maybe try out a really rigourous discipline like drawing or photography so you can understand how to construct meaningful images instead of just adding an affectation and expecting praise
I found myself a new hobby, drawing. Few days ago I picked up a book titled "natural way to draw" by Nicolaides. Very praised book. First exercise is blind contour then gesture, all fine. Now i got to ex.3, called cross contour. And im confused. In the table it says "Ex. 3: cross contours (1 sheet of drawings)". How much is that? Can someone who read a book explain this, like how should this exercise look like? Thanks in advance
Op here. I should also mention I did read exercise 3 description. It just says that cross contours is when u look at the figure/object, u start from outter edge and imagine ure touching the form and u should go over the mass/shape of the object horizontaly, to the other edge so it shouldnt be straight line. So my questions are: how much is 1 sheet of drawings and should i first do blind contour drawing and then do cross contour (it doesnt seem logical, since blind contour drawing is totaly off, and drawing cross contours over that will be....weird, but still i need confirmation)?
Is taking a break good for your brain muscle? After a few months of lifting I'll take a break for a whole week and come back even stronger. Does drawing work the same way?
I believe Sycra once said something about artistic progression. It was along the lines of, sometimes you'll be good, sometimes bad, sometimes REALLY bad, and in my experience, occasionally I'll come back from a break better than before. It's a rollercoaster. But yes, taking a break is goodd, you want to keep your passion hot, stoke its fire, don't let it burn out, etc.
It helps to do little things to stay 'up to speed', though, like contour dawing, shape, observational sketches...

I'm not sure. Not comparable to lifting I think. If you are burned out though, it can be beneficial but in my experience was that it's mostly beneficial in the sense of refreshing your passion and creativity. It won't magically boost your technical skill level.
this is pretty much right, knowing the right time to stop as opposed to overworking yourself then cooling off for a week.
Also make sure you're getting good sleep, that's where most of your learning is consolidated
Are there any downsides for using illustrator rather and photoshop for paintings? I know illustrator is good for simple things that can be scaled infinitely.
Why is picasso so popular again?
he had good marketing, now he has good history. He doesnt need to be good. Then theres that one guy whos gonna come in and say he lied and made his dad do works for him. some other guy will say youre ignorant about art history. and a fight will ensue
he was on the cutting edge of art for decades, invented cubism, inspired countless artists, was a pillar of the modernist era, was alive through and participated in many different movements, and was perhaps the most prolific artist ever.
Does anyone here do sacred geometry or does anyone here have links for beginners?
Also, does anyone have torrents or videos they can provide to learn about drawing these shapes and getting deeper into the philosophy?
Fuck off with this horseshit from here. Go to /x/ or somewhere where retards like you are welcome.
i found these spammed to a thread in /r9k/
i love them
they portray carelessness and depression, yet have a side of hope and wonder to them
its as if they come from the world view of someone who's trapped, yet sees their chance of escape and happiness.
you all may see them as trash, but if your willing to, look for the emotion within them
The entry-level Kindle fire is on sale for $40. I know it won't be anywhere near as good as a real drawing tablet, but are there good apps/usable capability for drawing? Has anyone used it for that? I'm not thinking of buying it for drawing (mostly to read foreign graphic novels and have recipes out while cooking) but this would be a cool feature to have to dip my toes in digital drawing and more easily share sketches, because I have no experience with digital art or digital drawing tools, all pen and paper for me.
Thanks bros, and no need to point out that it is shit compared to a Wacom or whatever, I have no expectations of an extremely high quality experience.
Mmmm... look, I can sort of see what you're after but, to be completely honest, you would be wasting your money.
Tablets like the Kindle Fire don't have pressure sensibility, and an artist-friendly stylus would cost a lot. So I highly reccomend you to get something else.
A good begginer's tablet is the Huion 610.
I've had mine for a couple of years and it's still working pretty well. It's similar to an entry level wacom device, but cheaper.
I know you probably want to "look" at what you're drawing like you're used to and may not like staring at your computer's screen while you draw, but you get used to it fairly quickly. No sense in buying a cintiq or something unless you're already experienced (why would you buy a $2000+ guitar if you're just learning how to play?)
Read the sticky for more info in tablets. Good luck.
So, what did you guys think of Tim's Vermeer? I thought it was pretty fucking stupid at times, although grandpa seemed like a nice guy.
Interesting, but nothing new. It's well known that artists back in those days were more like craftsmen and artisans than poets with brushes.
The only thing this documentary seems to show is how our notion of a painter changed under the influence of romanticism
planning to draw daily n put them in here
also kind of new on 4chan
theres a draw thread, and theres a beginner thread. dont make your own thread. You arent good enough to make your own thread, when youre good enough to make your own thread, dont. Dont make your own thread.
Dont make your own thread
also its muddy as fuck and your boxing in it bad.
How did you guys form a schedule to draw?
Personally, I draw for an "hour" every day no matter what. I tend to stop if I begin to feel like I really don't want to do it anymore so long as I finish at least 1 study. Even if it only takes 40 minutes.
I avoid turning it into a slog especially since I work 10 hour days at my job.
I think that if you push yourself too hard every day you will quit, but if you go just far enough comfortably you will stick to it for years. Whatever you do, you want to avoid turning doing studies into a negative thing.

Greetings, I come from /3/. We are planning to create a beautiful and relativiely complex and massive fantasy or futuristic city through collaboration. We need a good piece of concept art to work on that is detailed so each 3D modeler can pick a piece of it to create for the project.
Is anyone willing to create a concept of a fantasy/futuristic city similar to pic related (but with more detail)? That would make this an awesome cross-board project and probably the first time 4chan ever worked together to do something good!
Thanks to anyone who helps
When it comes to the concept of artistic genius, do you think that the ability to express emotion through a work of art is something all artistic geniuses share?
I completely agree but I have an Art History essay due next week and I am basically pulling stuff out my ass at this point trying to sound intellectual.
>Michelangelo has been referred to as a High Renaissance genius by many art historian's. Clarify your opinion toward this comment and discuss how you relate the concept of artistic genius to his work.
Advice? Besides fuck off I mean
