>Really like artist
>They have a large gallery up for years
>One day, they get in a bad mood and suddenly delete everything
>Gallery gone, account gone, can't find them anymore, didn't save their pictures except for a handful
>They never come back
Why the fuck do people do this. Is it some control thing? Has anyone else done this that they can explain why they do it? It's especially infuriating...

It's a number of things. One time this happened to a weeb artist I am following and I messaged him and he said DA striked him for loli so he was moving on to pixiv.
I don't feel like writing any more because I replied to this thread topic at least 30 times by now.
This is one of the reasons why I religiously download everything and have programs set to regularly download new submissions of all the artists I have a passing interest in
Harddrive space is cheap, start downloading
I normally do save a lot of people's art that I like. This person though had hundreds and hundreds of pictures and had been on dA for over a decade, so I figured their stuff would just always be available and only saved the pictures I REALLY liked for inspiration.
For how much art they had, it must've taken her fucking hours to hide it all.
I'm working on a book with multiple characters, and I'd like to choose from multiple faces to keep their description consistent.
Please post profile pictures of real or digital art people (preferably not anime, but still okay).
I'm trying to improve my coloring. Anybody knows a coloring tut that can match the style on the image I uploaded?
or watch the very long video of sycra's coloring tutorial on youtube. It helped me actually on my coloring foundation. If you know the foundation you can easily apply it to any coloring styles.
Even though we know sometimes sycras art sucks
Hello! I'm looking to buy a tablet monitor with the purpose of drawing/sketching on it. My problem is I'm based in the EU and most brands that i was interested in buying at the ~500 euro price point sell for a lot more than in America or Asia or are simply not retailed here. A quick example would be the Yiynova MSP19U+, which retails at ~479 dollars on Amazon with one year warranty and a lot of positive reviews and 680 euroes in the EU from the Yiynova Shop
. A lot of the other brands like Monoprice, Xp-Pen and Huion are again only distributing trough Amazon in Europe.
What tablet monitor would you buy at the 500-550 euroes range in Europe?
Hey /ic/, beginner drawfag armed with only a paper and pencil. I'd like to know how to draw thighs getting squeezed by leggings. It looks so sexy but when I draw it looks like shit. If you don't get what I mean, here is an example.
I am also not sure if /ic/ has the same hate for Akairot like /v/ does, but it's the only thigh squeezing picture I got.
Here's an old one of mine with thighs.
has anyone used this site http://drawabox.com/
if so did it help you guys, is it good and should i try it?
I feel bad for drawabox guy. He has to resort to scouring the butt hole of the Internet to get website hits.
While his persistence is admirable, after all these years, it's depressing to see him post "anybody used drawabox?" . It's like he never made it...
How many professionals still draw on pen and paper and simply use digital tablets as some kind of retouching tool.
I guess I can't do entirelly oil stuff digitally.
It's like comparing a digital VST versus playing a real instrument.
I'm planning on doing some HD pixel art that way.
Not sure if this is what you had in mind, but Jake Parker posted a process video the other day. He sketches digitally, then inks and colors traditionally. https://tmblr.co/Zyo1Fw26aIVzD
I never thought to invert the process and sketch on the computer then print it out...
'Sup /ic/ what do you think about this? is there a specific name for this kind of style or is it just digital art?
What's /ic/'s opinion on Krita?
I tried it, liked it but I'm struggling to find brushes that fit me.
I hated it, impossible to work on large canvasses with it. Ton of lag painting with larger brushes, for some reason it will cap your brushsize at 200px while using hotkeys to inc/dec it which is super annoying. I like that it's opensource, but it just doesn't compare to PS
>wanna delete art twitter and start over some time in the future
>have done it so many much I can't really bring myself to do it again
Is it a good or bad thing Im willing to destroy my work so easily?
Is this a bad style for me to do art in? I have a few other styles I will post below too, critique me and give advice how to improve
what's the best way of getting exposure for your art these days?
guess i should've worded it better: what's the best way to get web exposure for your art?
been trying hash tags, putting it into groups, and posting my art up everywhere... not sure what else i can do.
Your work probably isn't good enough. Good art naturally attracts attention on its own as people share it and like it and so on. Social media can make things go "viral", but it needs to be good for that to happen.
Hard mode: no mentioning the golden ratio
>Is there a mathematical formula to beauty?
Short answer: Probably yes.
Here have something about pattern theory and how can it be used to make better user interfaces:
A bit more about pattern theory
Generally study also tessallation and while it has meme status now, fractals. See L-systems and how thanks to them one...

Yes, it's all the physics of things. Light, movement, anatomy, etc. If you can understand the science behind the world in front of our eyes, you can figure out how to create something beautiful.
Does the size of a tablet matter? If so to what end?
