2022-11: Warosu is now out of maintenance. Become a Patron!
So over the last couple months I’ve been feeding my own art into various ai, taking the results, recomposing or turning them into collages, feeding them back in etc etc. wanted to share some of the results…
a cool and interesting use of AI. thanks for sharing!
>>6407458Thanks, it’s really fun to use your own art and photos to inspire the composition and color palette, and then feed it a prompt along with it.
How do I get a better personality?I notice that, in my clique, the cutesy and wholesome girl-artist in the community always get the most comissions despite having arguably less skill, it seems people will commision them for other reasons beyond artwork of their OCs.Now, as a 6'2'' mid-twienties brodude that is into lifting, motorcycles and loves women. How should I market myself?I get the feeling you have to become really femenine to sell art, and by femenine I mean, never actually sharing any thoughts or opinions others might find offensive/uncomfortable, never coming off as competitive or ''eager to play''. Never calling people on their bullshit..etcWhats your experience been selling art online? Do you change your personality to do it?
>>6407384Sell to guys who are into the same thing. There is a market for cool and edgier stuff, follow and try to connect with people and other cliques who draw similar stuff. I never did commissions but I used to follow a a lot of people who did edgier things and drew motorcycles and whatnot so there is definitely ac community for it.
>>6407384Lol what the fuck are you talking about? Stop larping your broken idea of what's a man, be yourself and post your shit. You'll have your community if you have skill, passion and spontaneity.
>>6407384There are lots of homos who would love to be your sugar daddy.
>>6407425But thats gay as fuck

Why aren't you a trendhopper? It's an easy way to put your name on the map
>>6407350thank you fellow transvestite for opening my eyes
>>6407350Again, you forgot to post your work.

Why bother learning perspective and dynamic poses when you can just trace 3d models?clip studio got tons of great 3d models and adjustable poses that you can even use commercially without breaking any copyright laws.Just take the easy route and take full advantage of drawing digitally.
>>6407348>why bother learning to draw when you can just photobash and trace other people's artwork>why bother learning to draw when you can just use 3D models>why bother learning to draw when you can just proooompt le artificial intelligenceFor a board that's about learning to draw, there's an awful lot of people that seem to do their very damndest to avoid doing exactly that.As for me, I want to train my mind to BE the 3D modeling program, and leave all you fags hobbling along on crutches in my dust.
I use the 3d model to make the pose but I don't trace over it, I just have it on the side and use it as a reference
>>6407348>"you can just trace 3d models">posts a picture that clearly isn't traced
>>6407348I remember David finch said that using 3d models is incredibly tedious, unfun, and just slow to work with.
>>6407432would you call it just a reference?
Any critique on the pose and the clothing?Also wondering how I can make it look like she's about to finish setting her hood for the second piece.
Please go to the beg thread.
If it's bad art, it's welcome on /ic. If it AI, it gets banned. So you're good.
>>6407332>any critiqueyeah its kinda bad, bruv, you should practive more
Holy shit. There are no fucking shortcuts are there? Composition, anatomy, gesture, values, etc... You need to master all these to produce a half-decent piece. Holy fuck, what are you guys still doing here?
Realizing that is the first step. Only perma begs think there are any and that is why they stay at the same level. It's like riding a bike or driving a stick shift car.
>>6407283>nepotism: the character saying this
>>6407279There's a reason anime girl in a void artists are a thing.
>>6407279The amount of shit you have to learn is overwhelming, the best cope is to narrow the scope of what work you want to make, maybe temporarily maybe forever. If you are painting landscapes you don't need to know anatomy, if you are painting in monochrome you don't need to know colour theory, if you are drawing in line you don't need to know values. Look at the kind of art that makes you want to make art and decide which aspects are really important to you and which you would rather avoid or leave to learn later.
>>6407279>what are you guys still doing hereHaving fun drawing, which it sounds like you need more of. Don’t stress yourself out over all that shit
Take a break from those anime girls and draw an old
>>6407293he looking kawaii fr
>>6407293>>6407315An incredible display of skill, I strive to be like you onde day.
really don't wanna do commission work rn
Why are artists afraid of being replaced? Just git gut good lmao
>>6407330Not even an AI shitposter, but open source drivers exist retard.
>>6407331>muh open sourceWouldn't work.
>>6407333Dude even if they couldn't just use open source drivers (and they can) they could just use an older driver version. Or a modded one.
>>6407335I'm not talking about making current graphics cards incompatible, I'm talking about new graphics cards being made to not allow diffusion models to work on them. Do that and within 4-5 years AI art as we know it is gone.
What I fail to understand is what's the purpose of this? Art isn't something that needs to be replaced, it's actually something that brings fulfillment to the artist both in the process and the result. There are tons of atrocious jobs who need replacement : cashier, accountant, housekeepers... Living as an artist is hard, but it's something people still want to do because there's nothing more fulfilling than living your passion to the fullest.What I see is destructive. It's not helping humankind to reach joy, it's actually deleting the few ways we had to get some sense in our lives.Fuck all of this.
I am a total brainlet when it comes to computers and I want some AI content made I am too stupid and busy to learn it myself and my PC probably can't handle it. Is there a way I can pay someone to make me thousands of AI images. I mean, it would be like asking for a commission work, but using AI.
>>6407260I'd unironically go to one of these AI reddits then I guess, maybe /g/ can help youpeople here don't really like AI, or helpinggood luck
>>6407262Alright, Thanks a lot.
God damn OP, that's some low double digits IQ shit you"re struggling with, just ask your retard handler lmao
>>6407258>why would you even want that^^^^4chan is turning into stackoverflow.
>>6407248>I am a total brainletOh, it shows.
>>6407176If everyone could paint, then no one would care about it
>>6407176Feel the formGrindcucks will deny this
>>6407179Owning /beg/ fags with AI
Which makes the most for faster art improvement/progress between IQ, autistic hard work and general sense of good taste?
>>6407145None od the one you mentionedTry these 3 instead:AttitudeMental HealthCommunity
just actively thinking about what you're drawing, trying to understand how it works, has worked the best imohard work helps but grinding by itself gives very slow progress at some point...
>>6407220How I see it: to get better, think and understand. To get faster and more efficient, draw more. Taste should not hinder you too much unless you have a god-awful taste, but most likely, your taste is normal.
>>6407222I remember a Korean artist said: "Given an infinite amount of time, a beginner and professional will each create a drawing with the same quality, the difference will be on how much time it took.", Do you agree or nah?
How do you stay healthy and avoid carpal/ulnar nerve syndrome? How long should breaks be? Post your ways to stay /fit/ while drawing.
>>6407108Pullups fixed 90% of my back/wrist problems. I try to do at least 15 pullups a day now
>>6407228Exercise really fixes most of this stuff. I used to get a sore back from sitting hunched over for more than an hour. Now I walk 7km a day with a good posture, lost 10kg of weight and all my pains are gone. Being sedentary is the problem.
>>6407108Sleep for 6-8 hoursWork for 9 hoursDraw for 1-6 hoursLift for 1-2 hoursEveryday.My schedule is to wake up at 1:00am to draw and start chasing any unfortunate soul until the sunrise chase me away.Bath, a couple hours of rest, eat, go to work, repeatMind and body are one, boysIf one is unhealthy, so is the restGod, I feel so alive
>>6407244You're in bed by 4-5pm? That's like midday here some people haven't even finished work
>>6407244Hes gonna make it
does anyone have any decent tutorials or guides on how best to go from greyscale to color without it looking muddy, flat, and bad? this is my art below and i want to color it but no matter what tutorial i follow, its awful :/
>>6407124wow that looks way better. i should try varying the hues in places more
>>6407125Just came in to this thread to say this.OP, color/multiply/etc layers are always going to look like shit for this method. Gradient maps are the answer here because they're the only thing that won't make it look muddy and ugly.That being said, I've tried working in greyscale many times myself since I've seen a lot of artists work this way and in my experience it's more time consuming, you will get worse results than if you work just painting normally and there'll probably be some degree of painting on top you'll have to do anyway. Just from my experience.
>>6407090Look for a Ctrl Paint series on this topic you can find it for download on certain sites.The issue you might be having is what blending modes you're using. If you're just using multiply, it's going to make it look weird because it's an additive mode. Think of watercolors - you can make things darker, but not lighter. Similarly, it might be picking up too much grays and making the color look dull.Overlay, color dodge and some other modes can be useful to polish it a bit.
You will never achieve your art goalsYou will never be young againYou will never get your brainpower back (neuroplasticity)You will never compete against AI and Asian genes
Thoughts on this design?
none. i dont think about generic anime. its some bitch in a shirt, what the fuck do you want

You have massive advantage: you can just dip brush into leftover color and make some pattern for the background.
Can I create any value with white and black paint?
>>6407139Your work is much cuter without the thick outer lines yes
>>6407421Well daily is clearly not working for you
>draw some art and share it around>"nice AI prompt you sack of shit kill yourself">used no programs whatsoeverhow do I cope?
Anyone notice how AI conartists will blow up your DMs because you criticize AI? Imagine being assblasted because someone didn't like something the computer wrote/drew for you.
>>6407057I just find it mindblowing AI art is being shilled so hard all over the internet. In a normal world this would be an obscure interest
>>6407062It’s even being shilled here, despite /ic/ not being a “proper” art community.
>>6407004Harshit, I am going to add toilets to all my paintings of anime girls floating in voids and there is nothing you can poo to stop me

>>6406972>I pretty much only do digitalIt shows.
>>6406972Traditional art has 2 functions for a digital artist:-Improves confidence in your lines (you will ctrl+z a lot less)-Keeps you stimulated (It's a lot more fun to mess with supplies than it is to click and change a brush texture)-You can do your warmups in a sketchbook to relax your eyes so you don't stare at a screen through your entire productive hoursOf course the biggest upside of digital is being a lot more forgivable so when I want to do a complex painting I just sketch it in digital, print it, copy it on cotton paper and paint it.
>>6407192is CMI a meme now? awesome.
people say that trad sells for more, yet i see pro trad artists selling original drawings for less than eternal int furry commission
>>6407091This. Thanks to living in hurricane alley, there have been long periods I've gone without electricity and/or internet in my home. My sketchbook along with dead wood books were good friends during those times.
