Recently got an intuos pro, worked great.
Plugged it in today, side buttons don't light up or work at all. I reinstalled drivers and reset my preferences. Is this a hardware problem? Has anyone else experienced this?
Some guy in here took my art and claimed it was his, since I've never posted on /ic/ before. Damn it.
Dis shit. Some anon in /b/ told me. I didn't even know that /ic/ existed.
Good morning /ic/, in the never ending questing to gitting gud its easy to forget why you go into art in the first place. Lets take a moment to reflect on why we started drawing, and how we have progressed specifically toward that goal.
Maybe you like drawing anime lesbians, maybe you've wanted to draw space marines fighting dragons on mars. Regardless of what it is, its important to remember that art doesn't have to be all work, try and go back to your roots sometimes and enjoy what got you started, it'll help you in the long run.

because killing someone takes a lot of time and effort. Having a shitty job, and keeping it, until you saved enough takes a long time. Hell, you might not get away with the murder.
Did I get it right?
Do you think it's more difficult, say, in hours spent in practicing, etc. to master a musical instrument than to become an equally qualified artist?
It's easier to become proficient at music in my opinion. The number of child prodigies in music vs art makes that apparent.
Also, in music you can be considered a master just by how you play, but you can play the music of Bach or Mozart or whoever. In art you need to "compose" every time you make an image.
So I would say the best comparison would be a composer to an artist. You get young children and teens who can play fantastically but they rarely ever compose, and when they do it won't...

Mastering the instrument is like mastering your pencil. I'd say learning to play already existing music is comparable in difficulty to drawing directly from reference. When it comes to composing good music it becomes far harder to compare difficulty.
Only AAA ITT.
Oh, and post the date/culture if you know it. The head in the first post is 1200-900 BCE, Olmec.
Pic related is 1400–400 BCE, Olmec.
2nd – 3rd century CE, Gandhara

I'm a wannabee amateur game dev who designs monsters. I'm going to post some of my monster designs and you can critique if you want.
Here's a duo of fire and ice robots
Here are some minor designs; the one in the top left is the only one I really think is passable
What is it that this man that you utterly despise his life , work and contemporaries? This board should be closed down, it isn't fit discuss art and it's attempt at critique is an insult to good men and women. Further it is dangerous to the artistic temperament to have such appalling governance and contributors here.
I'm sick of photoshop. It leaks memory, slowly using more and more RAM then it gets laggy and crashes when I try to save. What is the best alternative? Is SAI good if you don't want to draw an anime style?
Can someone give advice for someone just plain untalented? My drawing are just a result of work and nothing else and I can't get past my comfort zone. I have been drawing maybe for a year now and I can't at all compare to other artists here who have been drawing for the same time.
Do you draw a circle in clockwise or anticlockwise direction?
Do you draw a horizontal lines left to right or right to left?
Do you draw a vertical line up to down or down to up?
Right handed or left handed? And do you have a normal grip?
Usually but not always:
2)left to right
3)top to bottom
Right handed. I hold the pencil a bit weirdly I think though, like if you gently touch all the tips of your fingers together to a point that's sorta how I hold it.
I used to not care but then I realized that I obvious had to take advantage of the coriolis force effect to improve my circle. So now I draw my circles in the same direction that water flow down a drain, which depends on if I'm north or south of equator.
The further near the poles I am the more forceful my circles become, to the point where I can almost not contain them within a single sheet of paper. Amazing stuff.
I never have time to paint anymore so I spend my time with oil pastels..I don't know what to think about it so what do you think /ic/?
Critique me plz.
whats the longest that you've ever spent drawing something, /ic/?
2 months on this painting 40 x 30 inches
1.5 months on another painting 30 x 24 inches
2.5 weeks on a digital painting
should you spend a lot of time measuring or should you train your eye to draw everything perfectly without it?
