I made a thing
Does anyone else have trouble making "pieces"?
i have no problem with sketching in my notebook all damn day, but i never want to make a finished
piece because i hate the way it looks usually, want to start over, and do this all damn day til the sun is gone.
Anyone else experience this? Any ways i can combat it more?
I hate my sketches.
That's why I first sketch out a few ideas and then choose which one I want to finish.
The other sketches won't see the light of day ever again.
How about you write down you idea for your picture first.
Let's say you want to draw a knight fighting a dragon.
Limit yourself to 8 thumbnails / rough sketches.
Choose the one you like most and then just finish it. Don't do more thumbs and don't switch to a new one until you're done.
realistically it's because you fucking suck. there's no point polishing a turd so don't worry about your "pieces". Just get good, and you'll notice your work becomes more complete. Gogo draw.
Top Jake Parker tip if its not working from the first minute of sketching don't force it. Abandon it and sketch something else. The same goes with rendering a sketch if its not working go with your instinct and abandon it try again.
"I love art but, I do not enjoy making art"
Does this happen to you anon?
Do people not like cartoony art anymore? Did people ever?
I have a couple of favorite artists and I noticed, even if it's original character and not fanart stuff, certain styles do well. Anything that looks anime-ish, Disney-ish, chibis, that very modern-day webcomic look, those all well. But when an artist draws really exaggerated cartoony work, John K or Ed Edd n Eddy type stuff, nobody really flocks to it.
I'm thinking of people like Themrock who have been drawing for a lot longer and have been active online for awhile and still have less followers...

In animation?. It looks pretty neat, I still watch some old animation from time to time.
In image, static?. meh. I don't hate it, I even followed some artists that made stuff like that when I used DA, but while i like it, it isn't something I actively search while searching for art, or something I would make.
honestly it's just how attractive the style is
the reason anime and disney stuff do so well is because it's concentrated appeal; the average person finds it good-looking and wants to see more. cartoon style works well in animation because it's expressive, and statically it can be cool if you can appreciate the stylization and expressiveness, but for the bulk of the internet (i.e. getting a lot of fans) they don't give a shit about expressiveness. they want to look at things that they think is pretty.
This. I've had plebs say to me American cartoon styles are ugly. Mostly everyone wants wholesome cal arts cuteness or anime.
Basically you gotta make things fuckable. Not that I have any kind of following but it's just what I've noticed. I think only stoners and weird types like the kind you find on 4chan appreciate cartoon styles.
Got any complaints about being an artist, or artistic communities? Get it off your chest here.
Rant/Bitch about whatever you want, as long as its art related.
"why dont you work more?"
"all you do is draw all day"
do anybody know a good online art academy? i told to my parents that i wanted to be an artist and they gave me the chance.
Does anyone know what type of pencil this is? I know it's not much to go off of but I need a decent pencil for sketch/drawing details
I'm really hoping I can get some help from you guys here. Basically whenever I'm drawing traditionally for more than an hour or two I keep getting back pain around my neck/trap area.
I have an adjustable drafting table and I've tried pretty much every posture and tilt on the thing from 0 to 90 degrees , I've tried taking breaks every half an hour and still have the same problem of back pain.
If I work on my tablet I don't have nearly the same problem which Is I think due to being able to draw with my arm flat on a surface while looking straight at my screen. While traditional drawing I'm forced for either my neck to be in a shitty position or my arm to be unsupported.
It's sad because I'm actually in decent shape, Im not some 50 year old fat fuck who's been drawing for 35 years.
If you guys can't help me I'm forced to be a digital tablet fag, I don't even think I could use a cintiq since it'd have a similar problem.
Is /ic/ the most honest and therefore the greatest art forum on the internet?
What is this man saying? Did he find the secret in getting gud?!
i was here yesterday, made some more shitty ms pain things l0l imma share them again.
how to achieve this kind of rendering?
is it a filter?
Also anybody know who the artist is? I saw what i assume to be some of his stuff posted around. it's memes and all but it's also pretty nice.
Is there a tutorial for this particular style of coloring? I swear this method is still a huge mystery for me.
What do you mean? This illustration is very good use of lighting and volumes with a color palette limited to red side of color wheel (with occasional yellows and violets).
What is worth noting is that artist uses light everywhere: you have not only direct lighting on arms but also reflected one from bedsheets, you have light enhancing volumes on the face and even fucking mirror in the back.
It takes skill and quite a lot of it. I don't think you can see any tutorial that teaches you all of...

Sparse use of black in the figure. All the colors are warm. Limited palette of select colors inbetween yellow and a warm violet from a color wheel standpoint.
If you are working digitally you can probably get a similar effect by using a few color overlays.
Thoughts? I started on May 3st at approx 2am.
Keep in mind, this is faux calligraphy.

Pic Related: One of mine;
I wouldn't say being able to trace somebody else's drawing and turn it into flat colors makes for a "minimalistic drawing".
The signature at the bottom makes this even more hilarious.
