Made this in ms paint when i was using a mouse

Dear ic you don´t know me. I am cool... fuck I mean santa anon.

Please could you guys suggest some nice animated films?
Paintings that you loved at the first sight.
dont want to turn this into a Bouguereau thread, but i love this one from him.
This one and The Hard Lesson are my favourites.
I have a question to people who use Kyle T.Webster brushes and other stuff like that.
I use all kinds of texture brushes and its so hard to manage them and easy to get confuse what brush i used or using now because i choose them almost automatically.
The thing is - when i used brushes previously, they all had huge Stroke Thumbnail on that tiny brush choosing window.
While brushes that Kyle makes can be chosen ONLY from that far left corner part where they dont have stroke thumbnails and have only names.
Its so easy to loose the track of what exactly you...

like now im using this pencil and liking it. but i forgot what it is and when i go back to brushes list it just shows default "first page" while im sure this brush is some "Pencil" at the very end of my list. but there are tons of pencil brushes im having here...
for example THIS what i was using before - the other brush list. and it was so easy with stroke thumbnails and default size for every brush so it was very easy to find them...
I have to do a master copy for my art class and I would like to copy a drawing rather than a painting. I'm leaning heavily toward Michelangelo right now, he has some beautiful drawings. I would like to do it in graphite or ink if that helps.
Do you guys have any suggestions? Thanks.
It's hard to beat Michelangelo. Just do a study of this: http://images.metmuseum.org/CRDImages/dp/original/DP826907.jpg
In my opinion it's one of the finest example of draftsmanship of all time.
I also am very fond of Pontormo's drawings if you want a similar style/aesthetic.
My suggestion is grunewald
What do you like drawing the most? Men or women?
Where do i get acrylic paint in London. Preferably only primary colours. Also, what are primary colours exactly. ive got some christmas red and its shit for mixing
>I. DO NOT PRETEND TO KNOW WHAT YOU DO NOT KNOW.
If you're an artist and a critic tells you to work on your anatomy, then it is solely the critic's opinion that your anatomy needs work. There is no work of art so great it has forever silenced critics.
If you're a critic, start by stating the obvious. There is no need to waste time nitpicking or being creative with your reply. "Does this person know how to draw?" should always be your first thought.
>II. CRITICIZE THE PAST, BUT ACKNOWLEDGE.
History has deemed the artist notable, and if you wish for history to be so kind to you, you must at least acknowledge the artist's work survives some measure of time.
>III. CRITICIZE YOURSELF FIRST.
Criticism by another name, is consulting. Consulting is not free. If you ask "what is wrong with this?" then save the critic some effort and state what you already know is wrong with it.
IV. DON'T ASK QUESTIONS WITHOUT MAKING YOUR POSITION KNOWN.
"Is Rembrandt a good artist?" is a stupid question.
"Is Rembrandt a good artist? I think so." is a statement.
"Is Rembrandt the worst artist of all time? I think so." is a blog post.
"Is Rembrandt the worst artist of all time?" is food for thought.
>V. CRITICIZE THE WORK, NOT THE PERSON.
"You suck" should be replaced with "Your work sucks." It's terrible criticism nonetheless, but at least know you are dealing with human beings, not art machines.
>VI. ACKNOWLEDGE THE CRITIC DOES NOTHING.
Good criticism = "Consider the following."
The critic must acknowledge that the artist will never gobble up even the most valid of assertions. Even if the person takes your advice, they will harbor some resentment towards you. Never...

Is randis albion the artist of the generation?
>draws photorealistically from his mind, uses no references
>awesome sense of style and design
Does anyone come even close?
I saw a while ago a drawing/manga reference page with different sets of pictures. The first set was a japanese schoolgirl from all angles and in different positions. You had to pay for most of the content but there was also free stuff. I forgot to bookmark the site. Can anyone help me to find it again?
Typical ic answer: FUCK YOU GO TO req. Tits or get the fuck out!
Now speaking seriously anon you mean this (pic related)
I have the link hidden my resources notes... the last time I checked it I was about to buy it (I had the money ) the site went wrong or something.
I couldn´t buy it but I downloaded the video with most of the poses with is pretty much the same thing.
Do you want it?
>possibly one in fifty people can't conjure a mental image
>there's probably a few among us
I wonder if this would be an insurmountable obstacle to drawing from imagination. It's just now starting to be researched so it's tough to really say, but has anyone around here experienced something similar? I guess if you've never experienced a mental image you wouldn't know.
I was always afraid of learning to draw because of this. I can recall my loved ones pretty well, but anything else is very vague. That quiz puts me in the bottom 9%. When I draw from reference I rely extremely heavily on measuring and ratios to get things right. I have no ability to draw from imagination.
Anyone working in clay, metal, stone, or sculpey? Let's see it!
I don't do this stuff, but I think it's cool that you do.
How hard is it to get into? Don't you need a lot of materials (special overs, clays, glazes etc)? How much does it cost you to produce each one, and how long does it take?
Do you do anything other than jugs?
Also so this isn't an empty post correcting my spelling, have some of Picasso's pottery, I really really like it even though I don't like most of his other work: http://poulwebb.blogspot.ca/2010/05/picasso-pots.html
Online drawing board/paintchat is set up on:
Feel free to give some tips, help out some beginners, rate etc. Collabs are completely random, start one whenever.
Helo, IC! I remember a thread a real while back that had a lot of posts with deeply disturbingly drawn pictures and recently i've lost aaaallll of them. Really kinda hope some kind anons out there saved or collected some study material consisting of body horror disturbing, elongated, misshapen creatures, possibly glitch art or something alike, really anything with the key words being disturbing, eliciting fright or similar feelings. I really can't find anything alike searching on my own but I hope to have better luck dedicating a thread to it!
pic vaguely relevant
I hate those threads and the people who get off only on horror and spooky images. Usually there's only a few artists too that get circlejerked a ton. Look up Beksinski, Barlowe, and Hiroaki Samura's Love of the Brute, and then go away and don't clutter the board with it.
