>>2871114thanks much mural man
Anyone a infustrial designer here? Im gonna be goin to citytech in nyc for it. Any advice/ knowledge?
Can we have a thread where we post landscapes? I want inspiration of good ones and learn a thing or two. Feel free to post your own landscape paintings too and any resources that can help everyone who is doing them.I will contribute a few I like a lot and maybe what I'm doing in a day or two.
>>2870925This one is fine, but I'd describe this one >>2870929 as kitsch.
i'm going to a park today, gonna try plein air/landscape for the first time. Wish me luck>>2871005Who?
>>2870925>>2870929>>2871033You can really see how deeply influenced he got by his teacher Carl Friedrich Lessing. He started learning how to draw landscapes when he was 23. It's never too late I guess
>>2871106Jesse Powell. Thats what the signature says.
Because we should not have to make new threads or post in draw threads with our fundamental exercises.Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make someone proud.AVOID asking unrelated questions, there is a question thread for that.RESIZE YOUR IMAGES TO ~1000 PIXELS:#1)>screenshot the image and post that instead (I recommend ShareX)#2)>change camera capture settings to something smaller#3)>send to computer and resize in MSPaint→ →There's a new (and cleaner) sticky in town! You can see it at:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uwaXKU7ev6Tw_or__o8ARpUb6r2rCZYJGqwSFV9AD98/edit#bookmark=id.15jx3pyuimvj>Thread study: Try to draw/paint the opening or any other following images. Feel free to post your original works as well if you're trash.TRY TO BE MORE ACTIVE AND GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK - many studies are left unreplied, which is a bit sad and can be quite demotivating for the people that try their best to improve, but are left directionless.OLD THREAD:
>>2870952Compare the arms
>>2870960Alright. Can I practice linear perspective drawing motorcycles and others things that I consider fun?
>>2870931Top left is cute. Stop shitting on yourself and instead try to objectively look at your work and try to improve it. What don't you like about the frog, leather face, and mini landscape? Write it down. Work on those things.
>>2870980Ah, and do you have opnion on the books I asked about?
>>2870980Of course, you can draw anything you love. The important thing is that you both understand and apply the theory. On what, doesn't really matter.
Anyone here interested in doing a simple animated or flash commission to be used as a header for a shitty youtube channel nobody watches?
>>2870875To be more specific, I'm looking to get a stylized d6 roll on a black background with both dice landing on 1 while the view pans up and the channel name is written above the dice and the 1's are replaced with a C and M in any font. Probably 6-7 seconds max
What's your budget?
>>2870883>>2870883I guess that depends, The animation shouldn't be really detailed but I'd prefer not just cut and tweened unless you can make it look good regardless. I'd like to stay under $100 unless the work is really good
>>2870881I should probably correct this, 4 seconds seems a bit more reasonable
holy fuck im deadthese network drawing things keep getting betterhttp://affinelayer.com/pixsrv/

These look wonky, but they succeed in making me fear for the future of artistic professions.
R8 my first digital art piece
really solid start, just keep working on creating more of a scene then just one figure
Hey /ic/So I've decided to transition to digital painting from traditional. I purchased a wacom intuos in the medium size and I am going to start the ctrl+paint tutorials. I do have some questions about software though.Ctrl + Paint teaches PS navigation and utilization on CS6. I am wanting to get a PS CC sub going but the payment plans aren't making sense. There is a "Photography Plan" for $9.99/month that comes with PS and LR. However there is another plan were you pick either PS or LR for $19.99/month...? I've searched google and the adobe forums posts that pull say with the Photography plan you still get the full version of PS. Is this right? > Paying for PhotoshopI know, I know. It's a mixture of I can pay for a legit sub and that I haven't trusted a keygen since 2012.
>>2870870You're the one shilling an overpriced piece of software that OP won't even use to its full potential.It's fine if OP wants to pirate it, but they've said they're willing to buy it, there's no point buying something if you're only going to use a tiny portion of it, a portion that can be done better on a different piece of software where its the primary focus.
>>2870878Having used both programs, I have to agree. I almost never draw in PS now.
>>2870878OP specifically asked for photoshop you dumb cunt, and you call me a shiller. Keep that in mind next time someone asks about wacom and you respond with muh huion giano
is Sketchbook pro good? I am currently learning perspective construction techniques and I find Photoshop really tedious to lay down grinds and move around, I've seen a video about Sketcbook's perspective tools.Are they actually any good?
>>2870535Scan it, check em'
>>2870866I don't have that amount of time which is why I said some
>>2871003I'm happy with as many as you can bother.
>>2871026ok well i'll only take like 10 pictures not scans.My printer sucks.
>>2870537It hasn't been scanned yetPlease, share whatever you can
>Someone got paid to do this for a professional comic book studio>Yet, you still won't make itHow does it feel.
"Talent" is not everything.You've got to work hard. You've got to network. You've got to hustle.
>>2870500he draws better than meim okay with this
the drawing is better than the writing
>>2870500>Have I mentioned I'm bisexual?>Well... I'M FUCKING BISEXUAL.>HAHAHA. Deal with it society!!!
>>2870492original is better
sup /ic/ thought I'd share something I finished todayIts an album cover for an electronic music duo who make some pretty bonkers IDM / breakcore.themes I was working on are obviously the idea of an opressive society alluded to by the title they gave me, one of the tracks samples the film Zardoz - all things alluding to a downfall/subjugation of our civilisation.additionally I had just finished reading hyperion and fall of hyperion which at its core is the idea of humanity needing 'atonment' .... and bill cypher.any photoshop gurus who want to pick apart my photobashing are more than welcome, as are any other critiques.
What drawing tablet are you using, /ic/? I worry mine is too small, it's smaller than A5-paper.
I use a phone
>>2870424Wacom Small obviously
How do you determine the amount of money you charge when you sell some of your artwork?
A few questions to ask yourself:>What is the cost of materials?>How many hours did it take to create?>What has my art sold for in the past?>What does artwork of similar size and skill sell for in the local market?>How much do I like the work? >Do I like it enough to use it for future shows and exhibitions, even juried shows that allow me to make money through prizes while retaining the artwork? Do I want to display it as part of a larger body of work in the near future?>What price is low enough for me to feel regret after selling the work?
Have it be appraised by mr. Shekelstein, he'll tell you exactly how much money you can screw people out of in exchange for your doodles.
>>2870404don't know about that, but I just want to say how amazing that image you posted is. you've just added to my list of favorite artists. thanks!
>>2870404minimum wage + the hours that you spent on the piece of art = the very very bare minimum you should be charging
>>2870888>FZD school of design has a 85% failure rate>85% of FZD school of design alumnae are malesTHE PLOT DEEPENS.
>>2870344not paintings but I can tell which drawing was made by female and which by male
>>2870766Plenty of women on sites like art station which are pretty damn great. I don't see how you came to this conclusion?
>>2870790Wouldn't be surprised. Men are generally bigger size queens and into big insertions
>>2870344Depends on the circumstances, but in the majority of cases I think you can tell based on stylistic and thematic choices.It's a bit annoying, because a lot of the awful, androgynous shit that women tend to draw, has started to become more common in video game art. It's like everyone is either a bulldyke or a faggot.
how do you deal with the crushing loneliness that extended periods of drawing brings?
>>2870341I love that shit. But I don't hate myself either.However sometimes I do have to force myself to leave the apartment and hang with some actual people.
>>2870353I'm giving you a (you) mostly out of pity.
>>2870341I have spend my 32 years without a SO and barely any friends. Loneliness became solitude which is now a natural state for me
Just talk to people during breaks.Unless you hit the zone/flow whatever state, I highly recommend taking small breaks regularly.Personally I use the pomodoro method (25 minute sessions with 5 minute breaks, every fourth break take a 15 minute break)
The fucking madman actually uploaded it to youtube.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOuIgevbHs8Daily reminder for you beginners that if all you do is study, this will be your life.
>>2870490Hahaha, I drew that. I was secretly hoping to see it reposted, you made my day Anon.
come on fellas give him some good names
>>2870283Seriously, how can someone who has spent so many years doing art be so incapable to draw for imagination? I feel really bad for this guy, wow.
>>2871044This is true art
>>2871059Think of it like this: someone spends many years practicing going down a snow-covered mountain really fast while negotiating obstacles. They get really skilled at doing that. They are very good and earn the respect of their peers and awe of the uninitiated. One day, they decide to swap their skis for a snowboard because it's ultimately still going down a snow covered mountain really fast, the same principles apply, blah, blah, blah, right? Then they crash into the first tree and decide not to upload the stream on youtube. What went wrong?
