>is purple stronger than blue?
Define "stronger". I don't think any hue is stronger than any other hue really. It's only one property of colour, and one of the less important ones too.


>is orange the most underrated colour?
No, if anything it is overrated. Traditionally warm colours like reds and oranges have been given more emphasis in art than cooler colours.
>>
>>2517953

generally people define color strength as what is "hardest on the eyes" so in the category of red being the strongest and green being the "weakest" what would purple be in comparison to blue?
>>
>>2517958
I've never heard that definition for colour strength. And why is red the hardest on the eyes and green the weakest? What if you have a bright toxic green colour?

It's kind of a weird way of approaching colour though since colour is all relative. So making absolute statements about the impact or strength of isolated colours is somewhat pointless, especially when only dealing with hue and not discussing saturation or value.

Can you guys recommend the best Watercolor courses out there that is extensive and covers beginner to advanced materials?

You seem to want an easy way instead of the proper way. Tracing is probably a good substitute for skillfor you, find something like DesignDoll and pose and trace for your enjoyment.

This also seems like a good question for a thread for question that don't deserve their own thread, keep a lookout for that.

Hello, anons. I just wanna know if there is any of you that takes art as job, life basically depends in creating art or have reached a high level in drawing stuff and also how any event in your life could try to screw up with your passion (if art is it) or how it succeeded to screw up with you. Yeah, I kinda want to know your life history until you become what you are now and how did you do it.
As example, I can talk about how I was trying to be an artist when teenager but having to study and to do more things because of pression from parents killed all my time to draw and...

Okay, so I am becoming an illustrator, and I am wondering something about student quality and artist quality mediums.

Does it really matter what quality of paint or pencils is used for your art? I am very stingy with money and my materials vary from student and professional quality, so does it matter what quality of paint or pencil I use?

Pencils it doesn't really matter much.

Student paint is cheaper because it has less pigment and more filler. So it is also more translucent and looks worse and you end up using more of it anyways.

Buy the professional line of paint, and if money is tight then use a limited palette (Zorn palette is one of the more famous ones, but if you research you can find many different limited palettes). I also would avoid the real pigments for things like Cadmium colours since they are very expensive. Buy the...

if you're poor, use student grade, no big deal

if you can afford it, use artist grade, it has more pigment so you won't need to make as many passes.

hey /ic/, i'm looking to apply to some concept artist/UI artist positions in my area, and i was wondering how/if i can go about showing some work i've done for a previous company? and should i ask for my company's permission before letting some of the work i've done for them is shown to others?

i know some people password lock their pages with work they've done for other companies, but is this ethical?

I don't see why not unless they specifically said to you in the contract to not share it anywhere.

IMO best way would be getting low-res sample of your work or detail or even sketch, credit that it was done for such and such company and all should be well.

Did you not read what you signed? Anyways, as a general rule, you can post the artwork on your site or whatever after the product has been published. If it is internal early concept stuff some contracts though don't allow it to ever be shown publicly.

You can show it in private via email in pdf or whatever when talking with other companies, just mention it is NDA so not to be shared and don't discuss those other projects in detail, just show the artwork. This is a very common practice and without doing...

Do both at the same time. Some people wll tell you to master drawing before painting which is virtually impossible just make sure you're not a complete beginner at drawing, know your fundamentals and start painting. Painting is where the ride actually starts.
