Rate my art technique.
May I propose "Tampon vs Tampon" as the title of this work?

It's true i´m a Noob :v
YOOOOUUUUUU KNOW WHEN YOU'VE BEEN ON /IC/ TOO LONG
WHEN YOUUURRR READING LOOMIS AND YOU THINK "NEEDS MORE LOOMIS"!
Any good YouTube sources for oil painting. Landscapes mainly.
Time lapse is fine, but watching someone paint a full painting would be helpful. It doesn't have to be instructional.
No wet on wet bullshit.
What do you think about stuff like that ?
What can you get on the colour vision test?
I got 31 with one error (very last one) and apparently am a robot, surpassing all the animals. I even lost some time at the start goofing around before I realised it was timed, not sure if that impacts the score.
How to tell a story in a single painting or illustration? Are there any (preferably contemporary) artists who pull this off?
My art seems dull and boring, how much does story matter?
Drugs won't replace life experience but they'll make you feel like you do among other things. Do drugs for fun and draw for fun while on them but don't even think about making this part of your professional process.
This is coming from someone who has spent at least a few hundred hours drawing high.
The fuck is everyone's problem on this board? You people call others faggots for stupid like, and totally neglect real criticism. Some are really willing to critic artwork, and that's great, but it's like a whole 3/4ths of this board is taking out their insecurities on other people, because they know nobody wants to buy their MLP deviantart bullshit.
What does /ic/ think?
learning the basic concept is easy as fuck, applying and exploring what you can do with the fundamentals on the other hand is the hardest part and is going to take even years. There's no shortcut unless you're god's gifted little snowflake.
He learned to play a song.
That is easy. Imagine practicing drawing one thing for 20 hours. Just drawing a banana in 1 position for 20 hours. You should be able to draw that banana in that certain position rather well. But that wont mean you are good at drawing.
You will just be good at drawing that one banana in one position.
Anyone tried this out? I don't expect it to be a substitute for real study but it's somewhat cheap and I need something to do on the commute to and from Uni.
Seems like it's just a glorified paint/art program but does it teach you anything?
The sticky is too advanced. I've been learning to draw on an Intuos Draw tablet for a day now, and my line work is childish. I think I might be able to get better by just drawing simple shapes for weeks then slowly improve and move onto shading and such, but I've heard you guys talk about "practicing wrong." Is un-curated practicing a bad idea for someone who is drawing at a ten year old level?
Draw some stuff from reference.
Look at your drawing and focus on the parts that differ the most from the refference.
Draw it again and try to correct your mistakes.
Repeat this process with another references till you get good.
If Loomis is giving you trouble watch some of Proko's videos for starters, he covers similar concepts and once you get those you should ideally be able to understand what Loomis is getting at. Loomis is suggested not because he's the only option, but because he generally covers the things you need starting out.
If Proko goes over your head you're hopeless though.
Rate my eye pls
Well, it could be better, if I'm being honest. But what matters is improving. Perhaps you could study a reference point, break it up into shapes, and replicate that? Try to learn a few shading elements and ways to add in texture, and it should be much better. Practice makes perfect.
I just bought a new bamboo fun tablet, do you have any good settings tips or should I use the default profile?
Not really. It's a bamboo, not much use in calibrating the thing. It's a nice jump pad to other tablets. Try and save up for an intuos pro, medium is the best, if you want anything larger, then just get a graphics tablet.
>not answering your question like a faggot
Yes, well; hold the pen 90 degrees, tip pointing towards the board. Really, dont flip it around like some sort of magic brush, bamboo's not designed for that.
Use your arm, not your wrist. You'll find it easier in the long run.
Oh, and just use the default option. It's easier to just use shortcut keyboard commands.
Sorry for a long shitpost. Good luck!
Just a few quick sketches I did. I know the anatomy for the middle one (and the rest really) are shit but whatever. I'm doing the 1 drawing a day thing (for the new year) so here's todays stuff
Do you guys agree?
I agree with most of his points(don't know why he sounds so angry), but he seems to be going into conspiratorial territory at times(modern art meant to brainwash the American public) as well making some points that are just plain wrong, such as classical art completely disappearing in the West/US
For one thing, America was the leader in animation, and in order to animate, you had to know and study the fundamentals such as anatomy, gesture and the like in addition, many art histor
