How hard/easy is it to get into watercolor? I was thinking of dropping about $35 AUD +shipping into link below, provided it's not fake.

Watercolor is the easiest to learn, but one of the hardest to master. Just put some water on your brush, dip it in paint, and you get exactly what you expect to. It blends very well, but depending on how wet it is, often too well. A huge part is learning how to let the paint do what it wants. Also, you MUST use watercolor paper or it'll warp (or even dissolve).

I think Watercolor is a pretty difficult medium to start with. However its not expensive. Is that a lot of money for you? Then don't do it.

Watercolor is very easy, even babies can do it. But doing masterful watercolorful pieces is stupid hard.

They're both shit. Left tits are way too high.

Not sure if you're the original artist behind it but.

Left has much worse rendering, a much less appealing face and stylization, tits too high as >>2532768 said and a much sloppier background. It is overall less tight and there is not as much variation in how the different materials are rendered.

hey /ic/

anybody knows where to grab a good collection of classical painters works?
Something where each artist would be in a folder, with a decent coverage of his output, and decent quality files?

Something of the same effect would be a script to download an author's work on wikiart, but god this site looks horribly done.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Lighting or no lighting?
For my animation I'm going for a flat MSpaint kind of feel. I like the lighting but think it takes too much away from the style.
Any ideas for a better way of lighting? I'm using Toon Boom.

There was a reccomended book titled, "Anatomy for the Artist," is this the right one?

>>2532151
>nigger on the cover

I don't think so.
>>
It's a good starting point, though the drawings of the muscles are somewhat stylized and inconsistent. It includes some master studies of paintings and breaks down their use of anatomy, which is kind of interesting. A book I would probably recommend over this one is Valerie Winslow's Human Anatomy, which overall just has more information and more accurate drawings.
>>
>>2532151
Don't think that's the same book, OP. 2bh I bought Anatomy for the Artist and barely read it, though it does have a lot of useful info.

I've found that just printing out reference pics I've found online, and taping them on my wall is much better for learning things than reading tons of pages of a book.

If one is creating a comic with the planned length and style of a graphic novel, where would one sell/advertise said comic? Are free comic platforms like webtoon a good idea? Is pitching said comic to a publisher viable?

You can always pitch it, you'll always lose if you don't try. You could try some kind of guerilla marketing, publish it yourself or whatever. Use social media, as much as I may hate it. Free web platforms should be avoided, I think. Only a select few make serious money off this.

Thanks. I've been thinking about some different shit like offering 1 or 2 chapters for free on a website and the rest for sale, maybe on print. I haven't a clue if this would work or not.

Micron or any ultra fineline marker, best I can find in my area is Staedler Fine Point Markers

This, but practice with cheaper pen style sharpies. Like in order to get clean lines. You have to spend lots of time just drawing shapes and lines. Like doing scales on a guitar.

What do you mean by "properly"? Most children book illustrations look kinda wonky and extremely simplified, that's part of the charme. I don't think most little children would respond well to illustrations that looked like they came straight out of a Loomis anatomy book.

Here's the deal. I wanted to become a writer and I really do think the stories are decent but the way I write is just outright horrendous. I can't convey anything through words and so I believe the only choice I have is to get into drawing to convey my stories in a better way. Problem is that my drawing is absolute shit. I CANNOT draw without a reference and even when I do at best it's a 3/10. Is there still hope for me? Any tips for animating/drawing comics. At this point I do not care about the money (how much I'll get paid for doing this shit) I just need...

So I've basically been wondering where do you guys go to do commissions and what not. What kind of community and all would I have to get involved in to make some money on the side?

I believe I'm like intermediate-ish level and think I can scrape some commissions, especially when I look at the level of quality from some of the commissioned artwork I've seen.

Any help is appreciated, a complete newbie when it comes to finding work in this market.

Thanks for the advice dude, I honestly expected fuck all advice and constant circle jerk.

Will a behance or artstation website do?

I've been meaning to get my twitter/instagram started, but the youtube one is interesting. I'm just trying to weight it up because video editing will take the piss and it seems like youtube is really difficult to grow a viewer base on.

When you say YouTube what do you exactly mean. As in youtube for making tutorials? Speed paints?
>>
>>2530598
For some reason, sharing your sketchbook and doing traditional painting videos always gets a ton of views
Digital speed painting videos aren't as popular unless it's something fantasy related. Like what you see concept artists do
It goes without saying that if you are a pretty girl (either naturally or by the miracle of makeup and exercise) that you'll stand out more
It's also important to put your personality out there in your videos as no talking speed painting videos are a dime a dozen
