No, nobody on here has heard of him, because he's just another one of those boring atelier drones who's entire career consists of drawing long pose studies of naked people. There are a million of those guys and they're all the same: so wrapped up in technical masturbation that they never advance beyond endless training.
>>2288162 Honestly, this seems pretty true. Proko is a pretty good example. Technically masterful as he is his actual creative endeavours are pretty sub par. Seems like when you've spent a decade hammering your brain with realism and perfection you can't break away from it when the time comes to actually make something novel.
>>2289016 You're certainly on the way anon, your rendering is nice in some places and your character designs are creative enough.
However, at the risk of parroting the common sentiments of this board, I really think you need to go back and get a better handle on your drawing. There are are a lot of instances where your construction and anatomy have let you down with the finished products. Many areas look flat despite the rendering and end up with that polished turd look where everything is just slightly uncanny,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2289016 To be honest your work comes across as very generic and the type of stuff that gives sci-fi a bad reputation (armor that doesn't cover boobs, big guns and glowing swords, meaningless designs etc).
A lot of your designs look the same. You use the same type of blocky made up sci-fi shapes in each one. It would be cool if you could develop more of a distinct shape language for each, or have their designs draw influence from existing things to make them more interesting than blocky metal shapes. None of them... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Contemplating entering the upcoming BP portrait award, it's highly competitive, has like 2000 odd entries. It's quite prestigious to be one of the final 50.
Only problem I see it is that the judges show favour to laboriously detailed pieces that literally show every single hair and wrinkle, I think they also suffer from the same kind of pretentiousness the Oscars do, where "heavy" subject matter such as the aged, homeless, gay, and Holocaust survivors always do well.
Anyway, here's the winner from last year (best quality I could find).
Close up, so you see what I ean about the obsession with detail, this is a pretty common complaint of this award btw, several British newspapers have been critical of the judges' choice for such detailed and morose work.
>>2288810 >>2288814 Awards are usually pretty meaningless. History does not remember paintings or artists for the awards they won. I think it is better to do art that is true to yourself, and if it happens to please the judges then good for you, but you shouldn't change who you and your art are just to try to win their favour. Would you rather win an award because you pandered to their tastes or because you did something genuine and it was recognized?
clearly its just to fap. All the porn art on this board is fucking terrible. You can tell the artist just focuses on their shitty fetish while the anatomy, lighting, colors, and every other aspect of art is ignored.
Stop painting porn faggots. You are all awful at it.
the inktober threads didn't have that much live in them, so this might not kickoff but we can atleast try. btw here is the last inktober thread, where it also started the idea of this general >>>2270572
post your ink works, of any kind, as long they are done in ink. pens, as well as digital, counts too. fell free to discus any ink related stuff, but do not turn the thread in a kjg (like I saw in the last past few days)/ shitpost fest, or at least do it moderately
while we are at it, we could... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I too got into art planning on drawing smut, and after spending maybe a month drawing really bad tits I haven't touched pornographic stuff in nearly a year. It did sort of kill my ability to enjoy badly drawn smut.
It helped me vaguely appreciate more abstract art even if I still don't 'get it', at the very least in terms of some being well composed/having interesting use of color and stuff. I still much prefer more classical stuff though, and especially it's gotten me loving looking up the sketches by famous painters. I usually like their... Comment too long.

I'm a violently against tumblr "healthy at all sizes" shit, but fat models are fun to draw.
I've also started to think that all people look interesting, if I look at them with my drawing eyes. Life drawing has really made me appreciate how unique each and one of us is... No matter how gay that sounds.
Hey, we're starting up a new Skype group that's focused with gittin gud. We'll be doing weekly optional draw tasks and google hangouts. We're looking for some people, if anybody wants to join you can post your skype info.
>>2286805 I don't see the issue with paid art tests and have done a few myself. Even if the pay isn't great it's still okay in my opinion. But I don't ever do free art tests and think it is inappropriate for studios to ask that of artists.
You probably shouldn't spend more than a day or two MAX on an art test.
>>2286691 How shaky is it? Like major shakes or more of a tremble? It's possible to have a wobbly line quality with success, people like John Cuneo come to mind.
You can also try working at larger sizes so the shakes are minimized. Large sheets of newsprint for drawing, large canvases for painting.
Working with only the PS pen tool is probably not a good idea. I mean it might work but it would not be a good way to learn to draw properly and would be rather inefficient and give generally poor results.
