So I have a little problem. I can't wrap my head around when and when not to use the 3/4 head view. It's the most generic view of the head ever, so I try to avoid using it as much as possible, but for some reason, I almost NEVER know what to do with the head. How do I learn good/ interesting head positions that match the pose that the rest of my figure is in?
What the fuck are you talking about you idiot? There is no such thing as a "generic" view of the head. 3/4 view is used a lot because it shows the most volume whereis front and profile view tend to look more flat.
Just learn to draw the head from any angle and stop thinking like a stupid hipster shit and start thinking like an artist.
He is right you know, the 3/4 view IS the most generic form of drawing the head. Look at the way /ic/ draws heads and tell me that most of them are not 3/4 views a perfect example would be the Artist /ic/ Idols so much his name was krom or something like that but that is all he draws is 3/4 bust shot views, same thing for sakinicham.
/IC/, what is your opinion on art as career?
Any professional artists here?
What do you think of Black Desert's Character creation tool?
It can be used for free.
Here are some famous people recreated with it.
Did you ever get laid thanks to drawing?
Inspire me /ic/
I don't know what to art
Back then it took years to finish a painting.
Nowadays I'm worried that one of pieces is taking me more than a week to complete.
What the fuck happened?
could you use a gaming engine to make an animated movie? but not like machinima(3d models/characters) ? something like unity engine
its mainly for camera angles and pans around 2d art, or people use after effects???
Homes general thread.
hi ya, I sleep in my Painting Room now.
better document it for the biography.
are you getting red circles under your nose from turpentine poisoning yet?
I was exercising on geometric figures but it's boring as F
I want to learn to draw cute little anime girls...
Is this ok or should i just stick to basic geometrics for now?
(Total beginner and the beginner thread is dead)
This is how it all started for me. After a long and serious relationship ended I went into a deep depression. I found myself living alone at 22 years of age. My family had their problems and so I would see them off and on for periods of weeks or days. One night that my mother was staying with me she brought home a small canvas, some colors and a couple brushes. From that moment one I dedicated myself to painting. I knew nothing about it and now over a year later I am painting portraits of woman. Each painting seems to be closer to hyper-realism than the last. I try to capture...

>Has anyone been through strong depression and art blocks?
Every artist ever. Take a break. A short one, but a serious one. No drawing/painting/sketching or doing anything art related for ... say 2 weeks. That should help. It won't solve any problems but will clear your system of some anxiety that creeps up on you when holding a brush.
sorry about that anon. whenever i'm in an artblock i try to ease myself into painting again, and it'll flow as naturally as before. works different for everyone, but maybe you could take a break & travel or something like that, just to return with a fresh mind. figure out which direction you want to take your art in etc. good luck & hang in there!
>Does anyone understand me or have any advice? Has anyone been through strong depression and art blocks? General art block threat then..
Diagnosed Major Depressive Disorder here. I've taken lots of meds, done lots of therapy, and gone to support groups where I talked to a lot of people with similar issues. Loosing interest in things you once enjoyed is a symptom of depression, but you really didn't provide enough info for me to perform an armchair diagnosis.

What do you think of my boy, Cloudcakes, art?
Worth it to buy? It's $18 on Amazon right now. Or is there a better book out there?
it's good, it actually teaches quite more than just drapery too.
I'll say michael massen's book is better, it's really very scientific, boring to read and the examples aren't exciting that makes you want to draw but the principals he teaches is very solid and you can learn to analyze and design how a fold works and know why and how these folds happen that makes up the usual 7 types of folds that most others teach. but it's still very boring to read.
Couldn't find a similar thread, so brushes thread?
Just to make it more interesting, could you elaborate on WHY you like the brushes, and where you got them from?
hah I'm not sure if it's common or not but I use this exact brush set. Short of a few instances I've never needed anything more. Frankly a hard round with dual brush gets the job done every time. Also the cloud brushes in this set are super helpful.
Dump your muscular men and women. Doesn't matter whether it's irl, comics, anime/manga or 3d.
Post your current/recent studies from existing references.
Value/color/figure/composition/line anything goes as long as you post the reference used with the study as well.
never understood the point of copying like this. youre not learning anything besides how to copy that presise style on these precise paintings. if youre interested in actually learning, do a normal still life and try to actually innovate and think through what youre doing
or adapt this style and do your own painting with it. use it as a refernce, but straight out copying these doesnt serve much i think.
i think youre achieveing very little by these.
