I learned all my (Shitty) art skills digitally, but I want to go back and work on my foundation.
Should I cast digital aside to work with traditional means? Or should I continue to focus on my digital progression in learning the basics of art?
imo there's really not that big of a difference.
aside from digital software aspect of it.
whether you learn the basics and progress digitally or traditionally they kind of merge into one another anyways.
it's best to try and work both though.
since it's more convenient to take a sketchbook around than a laptop in certain cases.
plus paper and pencil/ink are cheaper.
For a while, I've struggled to find my 'voice' or 'style' for my artwork. Most of my works end up pushing towards photorealism even when I don't intend for it to be so. Any recommendations or exercises you could suggest to circumvent this?
Pic related is not mine btw
You will never be good at stylization, no matter how good you are at anatomy and perspective, if you don't know design.
Stylization is a language and you don't speak it. Learn design, visual rethoric and different aesthetic theories. THEN you will be able to communicate something with your art.
Is it possible to get good if you live in flyover country? None of the best artists or consumers of art live here and the "museums" and "artists" that are around where I live exhibit no discernible talent.
Hey guys, I'm just starting to learn portrait painting in photoshop, but noticed something off with my monitors when I pulled up my reference picture...Has anyone seen house of cards and know if the greenish tint on the left is an accurate representation of the show? I dont know which monitor to trust anymore. The one of the left is about 5 years newer but in terms of real life the one on the right looks more correct. Its thrown my confidence Im going to be painting any of the right colors on my laptop (new monitor) just in general at this point. Any input would be great...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The greys on your left monitor are yellow. Stands to reason your monitor is yellow. That said, every monitor is different, it's hard to make something that will be accurate, let alone suit any monitor it's brought up on.
I think it's safe to say neither of your monitors are right, and it's probably originally somewhere in between. Don't worry, this drives me crazy too, OP.
I thought both might be wrong but was hoping not haha oh well I guess nothing to do about it but paint what looks right on the monitor I have and be content with it for now tgabks for your input
Does anyone have any of the watts atelier books and/or willing to rip and upload them?
so how is that "million dollar painting" coming along /ic/?
I´ve been putting less and less effort, favoring production.
Still, two-three days for each painting for another half dozen views and likes is fitting. Aiming to make them even faster, to make comics.
I made this. How do I make this better next time.
wich ones are better when you are studying?
long extremely accurate studies?
or quick paintings but not with the full detail?
Generally speaking, quantity over quality (length), it depends on what you're trying to learn though. Are you trying to learn construction? Do a fuckload of line drawings. Are you trying to learn how to render small details? Then you'll need to do a longer study to learn how to integrate the details into the whole image. etc. etc.
Any anons here that either does commissions or art for practice?
I guess i must have been a bit unclear, what i meant was i either want to order drawings from the anons here or if there happens to be someone who wants to practice but does not know what to draw, but hey kudos for telling me that free art is illegal here now i know more.
Are there any tricks to getting good with a tablet?
Just got one this morning for Christmas and I've been fidgeting with it for a couple of hours, but I still feel like a kindergarten kid who just picked up crayons for the first time.
This is 2015, I need instant gratification!
In all seriousness though, are there not conventional exercises or routines that expedite the process, or do I just need to keep trying to draw a basic face for the next two weeks?
Like, this is the best I can do, and I'm embarrassed by it.
anyone here willing to change the dynamic sketching 2 course from cgma for some other course?
/ic/ show me what you got. I want you to draw this pic best you can.
anymore like this?
Come on, it's not THAT bad.
Looked up the artist, he does some nice things with the scenery sometimes... but seemingly every single image has a couple shoehorned in. Every single one.
