is it possible to git gud naturally without following any particular guidelines from a book or study? just by drawing in high frequency do you naturally show better skill, or did you stop and realize you were making the same mistakes over and over, and decided to follow some steps from vilppu/loomis/bridgman/whatever?

Define "study." Because if you're paying attention to the forms and shapes of people while drawing them - that's studying. Just paying attention to how everything works and comes together is study.

If you mean "without drawing real people or real life" then yes, but it's unlikely, and way harder.

Hello /ic/

>tl;dr: what girl or woman’s face would you use as a source-model for a drawing of Lady Justice (pic related)

I am going to make a large scale drawing of Lady Justice for my father (he is a lawyer). I pretend to use the classical pose of one hand holding the scale and other the sword (the scale higher than the sword, meaning that first there comes the trial, and only after it the punishment).

However, instead of a greatly athletic and Greek-profiled figure in a dress I will make a frail and skinny naked girl, meaning...

>What is the point of construction when you can do life-drawing?

When painting a still life, should I worry about shapes and proportions (think the Picasso drawing exercise in Betty Edwards' book) or interpreting what I have in front of my eyes and construct it with my knowledge of perspective and rendering?

I do the later but want to get into traditional media portraiture and absolutely everybody swears by life-drawing as the...

Starting to learn digital painting. I'm about to look into some of the ctrl+paint paid videos after seeing some of the free ones, but if I'm gonna start investing money into this, I want to make sure I'm using the best online resources possible. Are there any better alternatives? are gnomon, fzd more focused on advanced stuff?
I'm guessing they all focus on photoshop - would the techniques be equally applicable to manga studio? It's the only one I own legitimately

Hey /ic/,
I'm working on this thing. I haven't been able to paint with a computer in a while. 5 years, actually. I'm really excited to get back into it. If you guys have any advice or critiques, please, let me know!

Yes, you can't paint for shit.

You should watch tutorials of people painting, if you have spare 15 bucks right now go to gumroad and get the zedig tutorial and both of dave rapozas tutorials.

Watch them, take notes, think about what they're doing and why, and THEN try to paint and post your progress here.

As a learning process, is it okay to copy?
14 replies and 2 images submitted. Click here to view.
>>
If you aren't just training yourself to be a human copy machine, yea copying someones art to try to understand how they got certain effects, or copying a reference are both totally reasonable
>>
>>2362884

This + mileage, for an absolute beginner doing 100% copies of other drawings is a good way to get yourself to learn and you can train making confident lines. Make sure to mix it in with your other exercises though once you are semi competent
>>
Yes.

Most people tend to call their copying "studies" but there are tons of people who just duplicate a reference or art they like.
You can learn a lot from doing it, but as someone who's pretty good at copying from reference right now and still garbage at drawing from imagination, I can assure you that getting good at one doesn't mean you'll be good at the other. Practice both. Lots of studies, if you're critical, will help inform your imagination drawings and build you visual library though.

Is there any point to having a pen name as an artist these days? Or should I just go with my full name?

Seems like most of the big shots in art just use their real names.

With the street art/ fine art crossover I'd argue the pseudonym is still going strong.

depends. if you don't have a marketable name it's useful. my name is almost the same as a celebrities name, minus one letter, so googling mine autocorrects to theirs..

if you can search your name on google + art and there isn't anyone else there with a substantial following, use your own name (unless it's embarrassing )

What's there to deal with? You choose camera placement, that gives you distance between vanishing points, then lens and slightly curve perspective with ps fisheye filte if needed.

I try to understand this field of view business.

Would it be accurate to say that the face to the left would be what you'd see in real life if the person sat as a model for you, and you would only see the perspective of a face to the right in real life if it was a giant "attack of the titan" size person?
