Because we should not have to make new threads or post in draw threads with our fundamental exercises.
Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make your mom proud.
AVOID asking unrelated questions, there is a question thread for that.

I was sketching out a few thumbnail sketches for my portfolio and I dont know what to do with this one. The idea seems kind of generic/boring so I thought maybe someone could suggest a more interesting theme/or what I could change to make it less plain?
I would really appreciate it , ty
planning what to do can't be a step after you've started rendering, you can't really be asking this
plan anything and then sketch, rather than realize you've not plan anything and then post threads about how to fix that kek
I have another challenge for you. Create an image using simple lines that illustrate motion of some sort; dancing, fighting, running, flying, etc.
Poetics/Logic as contrast.
Need to paint this now. Collage is derived from imagery from Thoreaus Walden hacked out of a dictionary.
Hello /ic/. It's kinda hard to me ask for it but i will do it anyway. I'm trying to get back on my path with drawing by getting in to graphic designing and line-arts/concept-art thing. I'm working with gimp and i really don't know where to start with (especially when i have limited amount of money right now). I can only use mouse and free software. So far I've made my first line-art in it, and i don,t really know how to get in to layers, shadowing, coloring etc. Could you recommend any tutorials for beginners ? I would appreciate it really. Here is my first work.
How do you develop good taste?
Just be honest with yourself. What pieces do you genuinely respond to? Which do "like" because everybody likes it and tells you it is cool? Once you know what you genuinely like, try to figure out why you like them--what do they have in common?
Also it is important to remember that your tastes will gradually shift over long periods of time, and that's okay. Don't fight it. Always expose yourself to new art and make sure to look at it with an open mind.
How many hours do you spend on art a day?
Feng Zhu said you should do 6-8 hours everyday for at least a year. Is there anyone here who does that?
After 3 hours of art I cannot do anymore. How do you increase this?
Everyone has different work habits. I'd think if you don't have any projects you're passionate about or aren't getting paid for your work, 3 hrs a day is plenty. Artists setting how many hours to work is just a sneaky way of bragging about how much they worked themselves.
I'm similar except that I spend around 5 hours, yet I easily get overwelmed when I learn new things and techniques. All I can say is as long as you're healthy and exercise regularly you'll be able to improve. So far, I found that doing studies on something specific a day like e.g. landscapes, armor, and animals/chimera combos helps.
I need a break after a 1h-1h30 session. I tend to focus very strongly on art, much more than on my job, so I need some time to come out of that before I can dive back into it. Minding breaks I can to 6-7h on a weekend day. Without good breaks I tend to go for 3h at max.
alright abstractfags, what do you think about this? 10/10 or 0/0?
Try to draw this character better than this image has drawn her.
Did Wes just go full jew?
Can't even access the podcast archive anymore without coughing up a hundred amerishekels every month.
Fucking hell, it was such an useful art-related podcast.
Let me see your OC people
My home is the /beg/inner thread, so sorry for my visual diarrhea in advance. I'm just proud of this because I didn't use a reference (for the most part).
Can we have a general patreon thread? Any questions, tips, rants you have about it, it's welcome.
At 8k followers on tumblr and 3.5k on DA I'm considering it.

What's this painting from bates motel called? Does it even have a name? I'd really like to buy the piece or a copy and hang that shy on my wall
Hey /ic/, I really really need your help with this! I am trying to draw a large map for a board game, but it needs to be drawn in isometric and it needs to be stylized. I can manage to draw like, a single island this way, but an entire continent + some nearby islands just becomes an out of perspective mess when I draw it. It always ends up looking like a bunch of areas in slightly different perspectives mashed together.
So please, any tips, or even better tutorials or references would be GREATLY appreciated!
This is pretty much what I mean. Game in question is Angry Birds Epic.
And the full map.. looks messy but I would pretty much like to achieve this perspective with less detail, so it's easily readable...
I want to make this nice painting for my boyfriend off of this picture he took but i just hate the way the large brown tree looks, how can I make this look better?
