Hi /ic/,

I was wondering if any of you have any experience with making your own paper?

I've been slowly teaching myself (with varying levels of success) by using my leftover scraps of paper at home, but I'm not yet at the point where I can pump out a great number of sheets in one run - I tried making some A4 sheets today and only managed to come away with 3.

My main issue is removing the paper from the deckle and setting it up to dry, as I always seem to tear a corner or leave creases in the paper. I assume I'll get better with experience...

Honest question: why do you make your own paper? Wouldn't any bought paper be much better quality? Especially if your handmade paper is just made from scraps of bought paper.
>>
>>2518913
I like the idea of recycling my leftovers - I'm a printmaker so I end up with a lot of scrap paper from test prints which would get otherwise wasted, I was hoping that by taking up papermaking as a hobby I'd be able to supplement my paper stocks.
I also wanted to see if I could get a nice debossed relief print from handmade papers.

Neat. Sounds like a bit of an obscure thing to do though, so I don't know how many responses you will get.

What's the best way to advertise your own art and services (like commissions)?
Especially when you still have a small fanbase.

Hi, I need to do an impressionist portrait. I have a set of gouaches and a set of pastels. Which is better? I'm not looking for a lot of detail but I want to get the face done right/similar.

I suggest you start by doing studies in grayscale using gouache to see if you can get the hang of it. Same with pastels if you can.

Work on getting the likeness and values down, then start worrying about colour.

I actually use the Transform Tool in Photoshop and SAI to create those artworks.
From top to bottom, the original graphic would be warped and transformed to have more complex and advanced pattern and structure, and those process may be implement with many times.
Finally, they will form the body parts and become the robot design.

322 KB,
I recently started taking a plein air class at a fancy atelier. I am a noob with not much experience with oil painting at all. It was expensive, but the description said all levels were welcome.

I might have gone in way over my head, because the two paintings I did on the first day were complete shit.

I had a lot of trouble identifying color and mixing it accurately with oil. I didn't know fundamental color facts like how colors farther in the distance are cooler than colors in foreground.

I feel like I've fucked up.

Can you guys recommend...

Post your own work for better feedback.

Honestly for plein air just observe the colours and try to mix them accurately.

If you want a good overview of light and colour, this site is great but somewhat technical and long:

The big thing to know though is colour has three components. Value (how light or dark it is), Hue (red, orange, yellow etc), and Saturation (the intensity of it, is it greyish...

thanks for the feedback. i'll go through that site.

i understand those three components, but its a whole different animal outdoors, when i'm mixing on the go haha. as in i dont know how to get the values/saturation i want from the paints i have. my instructor just mixes in a tiny bit of this and that and gets the exact color he wants. i dont have that, but i guess your site will be the starting point.

I'm not sure if you paint digitally or not, but colour mixing in oils is a bit different.

A few things to keep in mind:
-not all colours are the same strength...a tiny tiny bit of blue will affect a large pool of yellow or white for example. So you need to just get experience of what proportions to mix things.
-most palettes use a warm and cool version of each of the primaries. Try to figure out what temperature each of your colours is.
-mixing complementary colours sort of cancels out...like mixing...

I lost the ability to draw with my dominate hand.
How long will it take to learn with the other hand?

Exactly seven hours and fifteen days.

>>2518030
What happened?

It will probably take a few months to get decent with your non-dominant hand, and perhaps years to reach the exact same level as you had with your dominant hand.

Just be careful in how much you do right away as it is easier to get carpal tunnel or other repetitive stress injuries if you suddenly start using that hand a ton after barely using it for your whole life.
>>
>>2518035
>What happened?

Did the carpal tunnel exercises suggested in the beginner thread (videos and so far), only to have it completely screw up my arm. Taking psychical therapy and under going surgery, but my arm won't be the same. Trying to learn with my left, sucks to hear that it sounds like I'll have to start all over.

I've been planning on getting a sleek new printer for digital art on my course, I might need to get an A4 and A3 size if I can't find any good dual printers. Is there a verdict on here for the best printers for art?

And if any of you have a good professional printer, it might be interesting to know what price range the inks are and how frequently you need to change them. Since the real price tag is on the cartridges.

I managed to grab an Epson R2000 printer for $450. They're originally $700, but they often have massive rebates ($250) to mail in.

I also wanted to take my digital work off the screen and into the world. A lot of times, it can give it new life. Also, sharing photos of art prints on social media is more effective/engaging than sharing a file straight from your computer. Pick related is a recent print. The colors are absolutely fantastic.

The R2000 prints up to 13x19, which is just fine for my needs. I get nice thick paper from Red River Paper, and - while...

Do you think dedicated artists ever come here?

Do you think this place is just kids drawing high school level manga girls in their school books and tablets?

Do you think if a dedicated artist came here they would be pout off to see this place is just a bunch of kids posting their manga doodles?

Let's look at the reality of things here.

Go into the drawthread, beginner thread, alt art thread, las, porn thread, sketchbook thread and study threads.

It's clear that the average skill /ic/ isn't really that great.
However there are a small handful of people here that are pretty good but the nature of /ic/ makes it difficult to tell whether those people are actually giving critiques or not.

I do believe it is possible to give critique without the skills yourself just not a full critique. You can tell someone what's wrong with their art but you might not be able to tell them how to fix it but that's alright.

/ic/'s mindset towards art is very good for improvement. Anonymity allows for the most honest critique possible. Also /ic/ is in a world of good information. I would never have found all the amazing resources needed for improving like all the good books in the book threads and all the good art in the fav art threads

4chan's reputations makes it difficult to tell whether any good artists browse this board as they're never admit to it.

The fact that we're solely interested in improving our art is respectable, any good artist will see that. Although an obvious downside to this place is that everyone is very angry and bitter. There's no reason to be angry at other artists or modern art or any of that, just get on with your own lives.

how did you learn about the existence of /ic/?

where you on the right path to becoming a better artist before coming here?

how long have you been here for?

found /ic/ (and by extension 4chan) through a sycra hate thread

i was doing shitty cartoons and trying to skip realism and the fundamentals because i thought it wasn't necessary

i've been here for 8 months, and owe a lot of my current skill level to the guidance and motivation that /ic/ gave me.

Some people on facebook were talking about an artist, without mentioning his name, who was being pervy towards a girl at an event or something, and when she wasn't receptive apparently his response was "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?!" So I think I was googling shit trying to see if they were talking about who I thought they were talking about, and I think that lead me here. So yeah, I was brought here by drama as well lol....

Hey, /ic/,
I already asked /diy/ and got nothing. Maybe you guys can help? I am planning on making a sculpture out of paper mache using paper, obviously. Ill seal it, prime it and paint it after. I've done this sort of thing before, like for shitty school projects, but never this big. It will be a life size woman-deity. I need to know about your experiences, thoughts and, most importantly, what is the best way to make the STRONGEST paper mache recipe I can?

I haven't done paper mache on that scale so can't really help. If you are concerned of it being able to support itself though then it's probably a good idea to build an armature for it.
>>
>>2517096
I made a life-size human figure in high school. Unfortunately I don't have pictures, but in order for it to be stable, I created a PVC pipe skeleton first, then fleshed that out using chicken wire. It survived many a tumble, so I'd recommend that for strength of the overall figure. As far as the papier mache itself, perhaps using multiple layers of construction paper instead of newspaper would give you more support.

I am currently in the course actually, it's a really good course but woefully underfunded, a good chunk of the staff are from the old Bluth studios after it died. Animation Drawing Studies/CDS is piss easy to get into but pretty necessary if you don't have much experience in animation. You can get into CCH/Animation with a decent portfolio but the standards are higher, more importantly you WILL be playing catch up in CCH if you don't, most of the students will be from CDS and have been working within...

I've heard NCAD is good as well, but it's expected that a load of first years will drop out because the teachers don't give a shit about them and only want the best to stay. If you can handle that though, they've got fantastic facilities.

I'm probably going to go to IT Carlow this year because I'm a poorfag though.

>>2516388
Yeah I heard that ADS is mainly about beefin up your skillset. I've heard good things about the learning process there.
How do you find it? Is there a lot of practical work? Typical modules? Also have you noticed an improvement in your drawing skill?
Sorry for the quickfire questions, just really curious about it.
Haven't heard much about IADT either but from what I have heard it is also very underfunded. A lot of people have been complaining about lack of facilities and the like.
