Been watching a couple of videos on Spraypaint art on YouTube. Thank goodness it's more than just graffiti, but graff is great too. Please post all kind of spraypaint art in this thread.
I accumulated about 200 cans and some old vinyl posters to fool around with that my local mall gave away to me.
Just find shit like https://youtube.com/watch?v=i-mCbUnKBzc very inspiring.
Post art, yours or some you like. Discuss styles and techniques. Anything that revolves around this thread.
Every program that I try have several brushes, but mostly dont emulate pen just competently, most of the times is just a thin modified version of other brush.
manga studio is a hundred times better than both Photoshop and sai, no question. also better than krita.
manga studio/Clip studio paint is literally the best art software right now for line art and line quality. it's on the same level as photoshop in terms of painting too, but without all those gadgets and useless tools.
I think I remember people talking how this was a good program for references, I can't find anything though.
What angle do you draw at? I'm thinking about buying something so the paper doesn't lie flat on my desk but i'm not sure which angle it should be.
I made this with a box, a box cutter and a shoelace. You might need a flat piece to put on the bottom (you can see it in this pic) and have a stack of paper. You could use twine and maybe you could use two holes at the bottom as well.
I am going to spend some time in Asia and I wanted to bring some art supplies with me to draw some cities and landscape. What should i buy that is:
will last at least a month
bonus: will impress my normie friends
I am looking at watercolor pencils but I have no idea what brand to get in particular so I would love to hear some recommendations. Note that I am not looking to save money on supplies so I want the best bang for my buck. Thanks in advance.
> refillable water color brush. Any brand will do
> Watercolor cakes than tubes. I use prang as it is cheap as fuck and pretty competent
> Any thick papered sketchpad. I use monologue sketchpads for that.
I would bring pens like Copics or something, some kind of brush pen, a good little sketchbook with watercolour paper, and a tin of watercolour blocks (mix paints in the lid).
Shit a refillable brush? How did I not know this was a thing. Okay I just looked it up and its called Pentel Aquash, and I am definitely buying one. Do you have any experience with it?
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.

Those circles are just eye holes, for eye placement, and to design googles or eye pieces around. Though, it's not as if I did anything with them.
Anywho, I always had a problem using references. I don't know how to bring a texture or form into a design. I'd make it too literal of a translation. Like, a spaceship helmet would look exactly like spaceship on a head to me. I'd love to bring the smooth, shiny...

So, ive reached a point where I feel like im using books as a crutch and just drawing what people have drawn is not helping me improve as much as it used to. Im now drawing purely from photographs and life.
I would like more websites like quickposes.com to do this.
Anyone have any suggestions? Or just pinterest boards or whatever , just good drawing references of various things. Can be roman architecture, can be faces, can be cats. Preferably all.
Just downloaded the skull sketcher app too so im set on skulls i think.
my girlfriend let me draw her naked tonight. I love this woman! if the rest of tonight goes this well I can see us having a real future together.
I'm looking for a good free and open-source substitute to Flash Professional.
Programs such as Toonz, Pencil and Synfig Studios seem to be the most popular alternatives.
shall we have some pixel art?
im not a pro but a fan, i'll upload some of my humble pieces
this one took me forever
stripes go over and under except for a few impossible places, should have designed it first but i didnt, i started and fixed it along the way
last, a screenshot of the latest state of the mural
now its your turn
I'm new to art and just discovered Sycra's YouTube channel. I've been trying out his 'iterative drawing' idea, what do you think of my results?
if you're really into painting the same portrait of the same person in the same exact pose, power to you
meanwhile anyone else with a brain will be learning construction and form instead of that bullshit that sycra spews
I'm making a a new 2D story platformer similar to LISA. I can't do pixel art for shit. Anyone wanna help?
Should I watch Vilppu anatomy video lectures before continuing further into the Drawing Manual?
I read the first chapter but I feel like I'm still struggling with the lower body and proportions in general too much to be ready for it.
