We need reference thread.
Can you guys share your folders and archives with photos?
Op, you need to dump yours before others will dump theirs
Post artistic goals.
Say what you want about Reiq, but his sketches are great.
Based @oltlo lately started posting some nice figure drawing OuO
And the reflected light is too strong.
Pic related, how it should look like.
whats a good budget drawing tablet ?
I'm learning about perspective and have some questions.
Look at the portrait to the left please.
1. Perspective is a way to show depth on plane.
2. As we see depth on this portrait (half-profile) this portrait is constructed within a certain perspective.
3. Perspective can be 1p, 2p, 3p and so on. What is the perspective domain of this portrait? 1p?
4. Can you mark please vanishing point (s)?
What are your favourite digital art tutorials?
Post any and all.
Personally I'm interested in Photoshop tutorials for illustrative, traditional-looking painting. Scratchy inks, some dry strokes, stuff like that.
But I'm open to more. Only thing I'm not really into is the corny sci fi aesthetic with super rendered paintings.
But you can post that shit too if you want
I'm totally willing to pay for tutorials as long as they're relatively inexpensive.
let's hear it please :-)
how does /ic/ recommend coming up with a name to post your work under?
Mine is pretty unfortunate, almost sharing the same name as a well known celebrity. i'd never have a chance at being found through google using my real name
it's the last thing stopping me from posting my work online. pic kinda related
Do you have a nickname people call you? Does your name sound similar to any words? Andrew Jones used Android Jones because it fits his name and his interests. Or just use a middle initial or something and use your real name. If you have a foreign or long name you can shorten it or change it a bit. Frazetta was originally spelled Frazzetta but he changed it because it is more memorable with one z.
Forgot to mention that a lot of pros picked stupid as fuck online handles and still made it big in the industry. Spoogedemon, Prostate Sunrise, Colepoopface, Mr. Delicious etc. They all switched eventually to their real names though.
If it's in your sketchbook, it belongs in this thread.
who else unemployed average tier artist who lives in existential dread about the future here?
I'm so scared, I even sabotage the opportunities I do get because I feel like I'm just gonna build myself up for disappointment when it all falls apart anyway.
this is super normal anon. failure is a prerequisite to success. everyone who made blew countless opportunities on their way there.
i've let potentially great opportunities and jobs pass me by never replying to emails. i was so anxious that i waited for so long trying to word it and draft it perfectly, eventually it would have been so late that i chose just not to reply at all. lol.
Im looking to get a picture of me drawn. I have a photograph. Where would i go? Is this something that can be done here? Or am i just a huge Fag?
I understand. Im not looking for anything special, just figured id see if it was possible.
rate 1-10 any comments are welcome
When seen zoomed in, it doesn't look as neat in my opinion. She could have applied the brush strokes in abstract manner to make it look interesting. Right now it looks like a cheap painting. 7.5 is too high, in my opinion.
the color balance is okay but not used well enough. The shapes are lacking in both perspective and proportions. To much symbol drawing (Example: Crushing waves like that is something you see at the beach, not a lake with no wind.)
I guess you could call it impressionistic, even if amateurish. If you like it then hang it in a room because of the colors it adds.
I'm not sure what 1 and 10 would represent so no vote.
What are some good forums from a productive point of view?
I'm not looking for a hugbox nor I agree with the rampant shitposting and unnecessary harshness around here.
Some of you have been extremely helpful and patient with me, so I'm thankful for that but lately I've been feeling like I must seek another place.
At the moment there aren't any. Social media has made forums outdated/obsolete and they have died off and are ghosts of days past.
You're best off trying to find a small circle of artists whose opinions you can trust, and form a group that skypes or does google hangouts together. You need to create your own tiny community since no large public ones exist any more.
Anyone know what happened to this artist? Disappeared around 10 years ago and most of his work is gone from his original DA account
When people do that it's either:
Their tastes have changed over time and no longer want to draw X thus a new alias
ashamed of what they produced because they begin to see with a critical eye
Imo neither of those reasons were good ones for deleting all your work and then your account. i think he should have atleast left the old account up if he wanted to start under a new alias.
Where I can buy a newsprint paper for cheap
Did you try an art store? Depending on the city an 18x24 pad can be anywhere from like a couple dollars to maybe 5 or so. I know some people in the US order bulk online, and some stores let you do that too. In art school I bought a box of like 50 pads or something. Nearly died carrying it a couple km to my house though, did not expect massive amounts of paper to weigh so much and be so bulky, and I didn't have a car.
