Attempting impressionism, oil on canvas
If you look at impressionist paintings, you'll notice that although they are stylized, the landscapes are still very believable. I think it would help you to do studies of landscape from observation, and then try impressionism again once you're more adept at conveying a realistic scene.
I saw this video maybe a year ago or something, and it sparked nice discussion here. So I was thinking, maybe we could link some similar videos of academies which show students working and the place in general.
And do some of you have any experience in any ateliers/schools that produce contemporary realists?

Hey /ic/ I'm interested in trying to get an art mentor and was wondering what might be a good way to go about doing it. I figure that just asking someone would be presumptuous.
Mentorships don't really exist in the same way that it used to. I doubt you'll find someone skilled willing to mentor you for free. It would be an extremely rare situation if it happened.
I'm not really in need of instruction (I have a lot to improve on but I already have a lot of resources that I am learning from), I just rather need someone to talk to get advice from and their opinion on how I'm progressing or what direction to go in. And I'm not expecting this for free, I'm completely willing to pay, in fact I'd rather pay to be honest.
Do you want it in person or via the internet? There are some paid mentorship things online that exist, but I forget who runs them and what they're called. Maybe another anon can chime in.
Otherwise you can try sending emails to people you admire and hope they are willing to take you up on your offer (if you pay then they are more likely to do it).
Does anyone else find it difficult to draw standing up? I'm all shaky and shit.
Why don't most artist ls draw sexy thicker women? Why are they always skinny and unrealistic.
I like making 'vaporwave aesthetic' pictures in Gimp and need nostalgic pictures of pink things from the 90's

Is this the new post work thread?
Finished this last night. Critiques?
Hello. I thought I'd share a text I wrote. Read and judge if u wana I guess
The years after the internet:
We didn't really know what to say at first. We were all in the light testing out wether or not people would accept us. After a while people became so honest, because we were so tired of pretending, that it inspired revolutions, throwing empires to the ground!
People started moving all around the world, no longer trapped behind their invisible cell of patrioism.
Years after, the world had become a calculated jungle. People were all used...

How do you guys get over the hump?
Just a little drawing I did once while I was bored.
Is there a good reason to draw pixel art in programs like Graphicsgale or is it better to just draw the picture in a program like Photoshop and apply a pixelation filter over it?
Try drawing a detailed low-resolution circuit board like in your pic using a filter. The whole point of pixel art is to get the maximum possible detail in low resolution. There is no filter for this. Every pixel matters, and only human judgment can place them correctly.
Personally I don't mind working with pixels, I may even prefer it, but seeing stuff like this pic had me worried that it may be easier to get more detail in with a bit less effort and achieving about the same effect as old school pixel art.
That looks nothing like old school pixel art, it just looks like an image saved with shitty gif compression. There's no intent behind the dithering so the whole thing just looks kind of dirty.
An algorithm can not make the creative decisions a human can and will never replace someone who is good at what they do.
A recent doodle of mine. Thoughts? Open to constructive criticism
bet you $10 he goes on a "muh style" tirade
How do I get out of a color rut? I'm having trouble using anything other than realistic color schemes and it's making my work boring.
Pic related, an example of a color scheme I would like to be able to come up with.
like everything else you use a reference or an inspiration you doofus
