24 KB,
For some reason every time I see a piece of art someone has made I hate the artist and the piece itself, as opposed to being inspired.
So I ask, how do I stop feeling these emotions whenever I witness someone else's success?
I've wanted to make a name for myself in the animation industry for a long time but I get turned off and resent it all whenever I see some succeed.
What is wrong with me?

Nothing's wrong. That's what happens.

Talk to a therapist instead of 4chan because whatever thinking patterns your brain is stuck in is definitely abnormal. It's fine if there is occasionally some jealousy, but if every time you literally can't even appreciate something or be inspired by it because you are filled with hate then something is wrong.

>>2548996
This happens to every one. The trick is to look for work that inspired you as a kid or even right now. For example when I watch any sort of smooth animaton it inspires me because I used to love it a lot as a kid

Who are the YouTube artists that are legitimately really skilled? I know my eye isn't developed enough to tell yet, but I want to learn from the best. I know Proko really knows his shit but I've heard people talk shit about Sycra, so I want to make sure I'm learning from the best.

for the past 8 months i've been NEET, spend 95% of my time in my bedroom drawing, sleeping and masturbating, pretty afraid to leave the house. i recently started forcing myself to leave the house and do people sketching as well as some plein air. it's still hard for me to be in public spaces but it's slowly getting easier. i'm going to my first life drawing session this week too.

Where she's holding the lantern wouldn't light her face like that--the angles are wrong and it's way too strong and too sharp/directional. The raised arm looks really bad, get ref and redraw.

The thumbnail reads nicely though.

What's the story? What will be in the rest of the image? It feels like the image is missing something.

>>2549377
Light from the lantern wouldn't be that bright on her face. Tone your values by 10% unless it's a really fucking bright lantern.

Also make all the lit parts warmer if it's just a flame and the lantern design doesn't 'neutralize' the light making it more of a white.

Her lantern holding hand and feet are tiny af.

It sort of translates, but it could be more effective.
The first two panels feel kind of wasted. The first, nothing is really told visually, nor is the location established in a way that is made use of later.

The second panel sort of the same. I don't really know why we're looking at underwear when it's pants that are being exchanged, it might be more efficient to show the guest's discarded pants as he's picking up the friend's pants to hint at the size difference.
The sister's voice could also be place in this panel rather than...

Christ.

I bought the artbook for this little animation made by an independent studio https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FmkAcGz1BJk and when I got it and found it was right to left the shit made me want to throw up. The art was fun and all but when you throw out a cultural/linguistic convention just to be "different" in a totally superficial way it's just a needless annoyance.

As for your comic, I don't know what the hell's going on.

Is anybody in here interested in outsider art?
Art of the mentally ill is also pretty interesting (schizos for example)

Go to /gd/. This is clearly a photo.

Also, that's not remotely how water looks (either the droplets or the actual pool of water), that wood paneling is artificial as fuck, and it doesn't look very good for anything other than a split second glance.

Then again, it's an advertisement, so I guess needing to look good is debatable...

234 KB,
I'd like to get a few art pieces printed, but I have a few questions. I want large prints, so what image parameters are required? Do I need a certain resolution, dpi, etc? I've seen prints online made on "cotton rag". Is that the norm, or are most printed on paper?
Is there anything else I should be looking for? Does anyone have experience with Society6 prints?
If I were to make a print, where would I want to go? A Kinkos or Staples?

Go to artpal dot com. On top of making decent quality prints and having the most competitive net return per print, they also have suggested pixel dimensions for different sizes. Generally though, I just try to make my smallest dimension on any piece 4000 px minimum as a rule of thumb.
>>
>>2548861
So the images do have to be very large.
Thanks.

I want to order a few X-large prints from Society6, but I don't know how large the original artwork is. I'm worries that it may come out looking pixilated.

An important factor in print quality is the number of pixels per inch (ppi) used to make the print. The more pixels per inch, the finer the detail in the print will be and the sharper it will look. Probably the minimum value for reasonable print quality is 180ppi. For a better image you can go to 240ppi and for the best quality you may have to go to 300ppi.

So the math is actually pretty easy. Find out how many square inches you need the print to be, make the digital image as large as you need.
