I'm turning a 70'' X 90'' wall into a mural of manga characters (landlord gave permission) because I need time to stop and do something mindless. It's going to take three days, what would be a good website to stream something like this? ( I'd like to get it done in two sittings, figure people watching me would give me motivation not to sleep )

Hey sorry to bother you guys, I'm not an artist but I noticed that a lot of digital paintings today use the same style and effects, it's hard to tell who's the artist behind many popular fanart paintings. I'm wondering if this is the first time that something like this happens? Is it because of tutorials and patreons and gumroads?
This is not about specific artists or traditional vs digital, I apologize if it's a bad question.
Well observed, but yeah, generally it's not even tutorials, but just the issue with digital, tools are handy and generally you tend to use them rather than restrict yourself.
Crude example: because workflow is generally faster with digital, rather than trying to place one good line you can scribble few until there will be perfect one and erase the rest or even append those lines to one.
Theoretically the same thing, but not quite. And there's lots of such things that build up on top on each other.

>>2563311 >Notice that best digital fags generally have very solid painting background. They work differently than most: restrict number of of layers and have different workflow. they do that also because they can afford to. if you are a small fry artist you will be asked to change a lot of stuff in your work, and here multiple layers come in handy. but when you are a well know and have artist freedom on your pieces you can work on just a few layers

How does /ic/ deal with "starting" a drawing, painting or just sketching something? The majority of the time I can't begin anywhere because I can't picture it in my mind. I know it requires trying but the motivation is just not there. It hasn't been there for years. Every once in a blue moon I'll sit down and do something that I actually put effort in it and recently it was a self portrait. But it's like there's a 3 digit lock on my imagination and I'm stuck on the second number and I've lost the key to my creativity. How... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2562985 If you don't want to draw, and are unable to "force" yourself to just do it then maybe art isn't for you. People who do this all the time or do it for a job don't usually require extreme measures to make themselves draw.
If you're just lazy then you need to analyze your behavior. Even the best artists don't always want to draw but they're able to make themselves do it because they have to for work or practice.

Hey guys I am novice artists and I wanted to know what scanner should I get. I am trying to get my stuff onto my PC so I can touch it up better and color it but, everything I look up says the prices are in the five hundreds. I don't want to keep taking pictures. Any help is appreciated I work with 11×14.
I like it. And I would like it better done up in acrylic paint. As it is,the concept works: do a few more studies,make the psychdelia more winding and elaborate,and juxtapose those bright trippy colors with a bland dark muted landscape and a plain satellite dish. Then do a Big Work based on the lessons learned in the studies,maybe not in colored pencil,but let the medium suit the colors.
Look up Peter Max. Watch Yellow Submarine. And Explore Unafraid.
So... i completely lack fantasy and creativity in my brain. i love to work on art so much, but i am relizing more and more that all my "original ideas" are just regurgitated things i have seen before. and i know most creativity stems from reusing things that have existed before, but i feel like i lack even the most basic creativity. I have tried reading more books, watching more movies, i have tried so hard to just develop originality, but i can't. but i really want to. is there anything you guys do that keeps you thinking and inspired?
>>2560758 What are you interested in outside of art? Is there a particular place and time in history that fascinates you? A vacation you took one time where you saw some cool shit? Something you saw in a museum? A type of animal or other thing from nature that you think looks cool? Another hobby? Are you into guitar? Motorcycles? etc.
There are all sorts of things that I am interested in or that I find aesthetically pleasing that have nothing to do with art/movies/video games. Drawing upon those things for inspiration... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>2560758 >but i am relizing more and more that all my "original ideas" are just regurgitated things i have seen before See, there's your problem. You're too self conscious, you start being creative and then you stop when you realize it's no good. Don't do that. Whatever stupid shit you come up with, follow through with it. Sketch it out, plan it out, do thumbnails, whatever. It doesn't matter if it sucks. What does matter is that you keep doing that though,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Flip your fucking canvas. Resize your fucking image. Don't make your own fucking thread. We have fucking threads for this. We have like five fucking threads for this. We tell people every time not to make their own fucking threads. Why are you special? You're not. Go post in the beginner thread or the drawthread or the stylized thread or the sketchbook thread.
