>artists that live paycheck to paycheck
I'm having trouble capturing facial features, such as noses, eyes, etc. Anybody got good images to study or videos to share? (Mostly noses, They're quite underrated and i want to get better at them)
Also, Face Thread.
Are there any books or in depth videos on designing and making puppets?
Also, I don't really know if this is the right place for this sort of question. I assumed that creating puppets has more to do with traditional art and in some ways puppeteering has quite a few similarities to traditional animation.
I flipped through a friend's copy of "The Foam Book" by Drew Allison once and found it to be a pretty good resource, especially for beginners. Alas, I can't seem to find it online anywhere for a reasonable price. Wish I could, I would love a copy of my own.
Man, you weren't kidding. It isn't on any torrent site either. I guess the artform has been dead for a while and isn't nearly as popular as traditional or digital animation.
Hey, does anyone have a like, mega link to a bunch of figures I can practice drawing?
>just a warm up for commissions
I see this way too often.
Why is literally every novice, amateurish, or other bad young online artist getting into commissions before they're even decent?
It's not even that there's a market for it. There's no demand. They're just jumping straight into "I take commissions uwu," whether they get a bite on their hooks or not. It's like a persistent thing.
>there is no point where you can say, "okay, I KNOW drawing and have everything nailed down".
>it's good practice, with some pocket money to boot
>You gotta start selling your work yourself sooner or later. If you wait until you're sakimichan (can't think of anyone else atm) levels of good for 10 bucks a pop, you suck at money.
Basically this unicorn is one of a couple new characters I created (for my own animated videos), how did I do?
Who here gets depressed because they believe their worth in this world is based on being a creative artist, and you come here and realize that you are not special in any of the ways you thought you were?
>getting depressed because you're not a special snowflake
hahahaha really anon
Hi guys, a while ago I started painting these weird doodles. I know they look ridiculous..:) Anyways, I wanted to hear some of your thoughts about them, bash 'em if you like too lol.
If i were to kill myself utilizing the method of abstract art via setting up a camera and a canvas whilst blowing out my brains onto said canvas while streaming, would you guys get an audience together that wont rat me out to authoritys?
Do you guys ever try limiting your colors to give it a really cool look? Really fun to do.
(Art not mine)
Go back to study my dear namefag, you have a long way.
Post images that you like.
Draw your dreams thread. This is a dream I had where a giant crab/lobster monster was destroying my city.
Hello. I'm looking for an Ouroboros design for my first tat. About 5" across over my heart. I keep drawing them but just crumple them up. Too critical of my own art to make it permanent. It needs to be relatively simple. If someone has a good one or would draw one for me I will likely get it in ink next week!
My back and ass are starting to really hurst despite taking several breaks.
Does /ic/ have a recommended set up? Chairs, desk, easels etc. Really want to avoid injuring myself now that I have a good streak going
Have you tried standing desks? I need to get myself one, but not for your reason. I can't work productively and hold still at the same time.
Standing desks are also supposed to alleviate all kinds of problems since human beings aren't meant to sit the way we normally do all day.
>What is an air traffic controller?
9+hrs a day sitting and communicating, though this is a pretty unfair comparison because their chairs can go to $1000+
Hamada uses this setup, he draws for 14hrs a day. Keep a stool for when your legs get tired
Might /diy/ myself up something like that, just a small one to put on my desk
not OP that's actually awesome, If I had the wooden stand for his table I could do that.
If your not doing 14 hours a day though you could probably get a way with working out and exercise. Just listen to you body and don't kill yourself , a recent video watts made where he says that someone wanted to go to his atelier and drew 13hrs a day and blew out both his wrists. Keep in mind I think he went from nothing to doing that , there are def professionals who pull out those hours but it's built from years of slowly increasing them.
