I'm 24. I REALLY want to get into digital art, I'm already learning.
1.) Do I go into an art school for 4 years here in Ontario? We've got OCAD and Sheridan, basically. Are they even worth it?
2.) I have the option of learning programming and getting a web development job for a few years while I try to git gud for an art job. I get to save money for the future, but not relevant to art at all.
3.) Or I can ditch any kind of job and just devote myself full-time to working on my art. Quickest way I will get to a professional level but I have...

OCAD and Sheridan are barely worth it if it's a full ride but don't expect something even close to on par with a high end school. Only good thing Sheridan has is open lifedrawing and the animation program. Illustration is a fucking joke and the fundies course is a cash grab.

ABSOLUTELY FUCKING DO THAT. THERE'S ZERO MONEY IN DIGITAL ART. DON'T LISTEN TO THE IDIOTS WHO ENCOURAGE YOU. HOBBY ONLY HOBBY ONLY HOBBY ONLY.
programming in particular is THE SINGLE BEST CAREER PATH available right now. don't be like me. don't throw your life away.
which one does /ic/ prefer?
digital or traditional art?
Am I the only person on /ic/ who basically never uses references?
I feel extremely constrained when I do.
do you guys have jobs?

Anyone got Omphalos? I heard there's a lot of old stuff in there.
How the hell did katsuhiro otomo learn to animate so well in such a short period of time?
Why are you procrastinating anon?
A good night sleep so you can work efficiently, or learn much more effectively, is much better than skipping sleep and working for much longer. Only a few people can handle such schedules and I'm not one of them.
Probably the wrong place to ask but
What's the best way to set up Photoshop for your art and workflow? I'm a Sai fag and and have barley used PS for drawing, and I want to organize the UI as best as possible.
That depends entirely on you and your workflow. Not everybody paints or draws the same.
Do you even have a workflow? Are there a set of steps you use to create a drawing? If so, let that be your jumpoff point. If not, maybe get a workflow before you look to start optimizing your workflow.
Like I said I'm a Sai guy, so I'm used to much more simple tools. I'm wanting to use PS for more paint studies and working with values. Sai has methods for that sure, but PS seems to be a better too from what I can see.
I'm thinking it's just a case of what >>2249689 said and just use what's necessary, but I'm not entirely sure what is and what isn't.
Why are you not apart of something bigger?
Because Anthony Jones, while a good painter, is a terrible teacher. He rambles on with a congested voice, you would be much better served watching from someone that can actually teach in bite sized focused videos like Matt Kohr on ctrl paint
I completely disagree,
I think Anthony Jones is a bit too "Mr. Conceptart"-ish, and despite that he is actually a really good teacher because he knows how to keep the audience interested.
There's nothing wrong with the way that Matt Kohr teaches, it's really good, but if you want to learn something it is good with variation. Anthony is able to set apart from other teachers by bringing a lot of humor into painting, poke fun at things and try to be funny, and it might not work for everyone;...

tell me how to draw
don't give me any of that Loomis bullshit, I want the truth
you can play dumb all you want but I know you can't keep your secrets forever
1. Get a pencil and paper
2. After having selected a subject, begin making marks on the paper using your pencil.
3. Continue making marks on the paper until the marks resemble the chosen subject.
4. Repeat until the desired results are achieved. Refresh the materials whenever needed.
Congratulations: you are drawing!
I don't know if this is the best place to ask, but I'm looking for art-related gifts for my girlfriends birthday.
She's into lifelike sketching (pencils - no colour) / life drawings. She already has a desk and drawing tools. Is there anything else I could get her to help her process?
Whats the best book to learn anatomy in a comic-book/anime style?
I'm looking for a book that is in between comic-book and anime since I think they go well together.
Complete beginner with shity art skill btw.
Or just do studies of your favorite artists.
How is it possible for this guy to get to paint such huge large scale murals all over the world?
How is this organised?
How the hell does he find people wanting large murals painted on their buildings in every single country?
So, I have this painting hanging in my living room, a friend saw it and said that they have a print of the exact same painting, I got it at a thrift store, mine seems to be the original, its on canvas, is painted, but can paintings be massed produced? It has a signature and on the back says Oct. 31st 1933. Trying to figure out who painted this and what the painintg it called, I'l post images of the writings on it, it's painted on a Viktoria canvas
