Are there ANY other active art communities online besides /ic/?

I've gotten fears that 4chan (and hence /ic/) is disappearing soon.
I really love /ic/, there's a huge variety of artists here with different interests and skill levels...

Remember that /loomis/ is gone.

No, outside 4chan everything is Reddit tier. The only thing left is to host your own 4chan variant.

Previous thread >>5024522

For all those who love /pain/ting. Try not to derail the thread with stupid shit about what jitter or pressure sensitivity is for tablets, if you're too fucking lazy to search those up on youtube and watch an actual video demonstration of what is for your respective apps.. then maybe you should just stick to traditional tools.

Pro /Pain/t Tips - PPT:
>Dont argue about brushes and expect to have everything explained to you, art is a visual learning experience that you practice through action, not sitting there and reading shit until it "clicks" it only clicks when you get to work.
>Dont copy everything 1:1 this isnt /asg/ actually try to analyze and understand what youre doing with notes
>Post your work if you want critiques or have trouble understanding something and want help
>Come back to a painting later if youre spending hours on it, dont focus on the details if youre studying, try capturing it in BOLD and BRASH strokes
>Work in grayscale before tackling color, then you'll see colors as values
>Start simple and work toward complexity
>You can always start over
>Hard brush is love , Hard brush is life

Last thread was about values and had some good information, be sure to check that out. Ill also link some youtube channels here that I personally enjoy and help me to see values and colors.




I also decided to work on my own folder for this general specifically, I'll add to it when I have time, as of now the FULL Krenz painting course is in there so you guys can enjoy that for now, but sadly its all in Chinese, hopefully one day it'll be translated lol. Let me know if it works.

Hi, what are some affordable easy to erase sketching pencils? Sometimes my undersketch doesnt erase completely, and i can see pencil marks under the black and white ink of my drawing. I use mechanical pencils for their simplicity but im ready to move on to something less limiting. I think that mechanical pencils probably have a harder graphite than i really need for a sketch.

>> No.5034048

You don't need to hand sharpen your pencils, I use an electric one and it sharpens my pencils to a nice point every time. It even sharpens my delicate charcoal pencils to a very fine point without breaking them. Just make sure you get a good one!

>> No.5034053

i remember i had this drawing teacher that had this elaborate process for sharpening pencils. I think people on here talk about it where you use a sander and a knife and some other shit. I guess that is different though because its for line expresiion, and here i just need something for a undersketch to construct something.

thanks anon

Additionally, you can find different lead grades for mechanical pencils if you prefer, although I suggest trying out regular pencils because you can use it at an angle.

pinks a shit. try pic related.
art gum is good for painlessly deleting large sections like underdrawings. haven't had issues with it affecting ink but depends on the ink/paper i'm sure.
kneadeds give you a lot of control so they're better while drawing in pencil, but they're not quite as good/fast at fully erasing. and they absorb the graphite so repeatedly soaking up full pages worth can be something of a beating.

Total /beg/ here, I’ve never been too deep into animation and was curious on line work while animating. I’ve always been under the assumption that all lines have to have the same line weight because obviously it would be difficult to constantly replicate tapered lines over and over again. I saw the digievolution clips from Digimon Adventure Tri and they managed to do varied line weight, as you can see the liens taper frequnetly although granted it’s used scarcely throughout the series and is only really there on closeups. So is it possible or not? Or is it only possible for level 100 animators and beginners shouldn’t even attempt it?

2 replies omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No.5033923

Not hard to imitate, especially when animators of all nations use the likes of toonboom, CSP, photoshop, opentoonz, Adobe animate, the list goes on. I even see titmouse animation doing this depending on the project. I dunno why you ask this, most art programs have an option where you can limit the minimum and maximum amount of line density.
Whatever, good luck, god bless, and good night

I first noticed this in Demon Slayer. I'm sure it's one of the pros of using digital like the other anon said. I suspect they use vector lines or something similar that allows them to match tapers frame-for-frame.

I'm an animator at Titmouse and it's possible but it fucking sucks. Tracking the line weight is super obnoxious. The example you posted isn't too bad since the character keeps changing to other dynamic poses so you really only have to worry about that one key drawing and the frames before and after it. You usually only see these sorts of thicker lines on movies, OVAs, or important sequences like your gif due to the difficulty. It's not so incredibly difficult that only the best of the best can handle it, it's just tedious to track.
As far as process goes, animators usually draw the outline of the outline, if that makes sense. It makes it easier for the clean up crew to understand what's an intentionally thick line and what's just rough line work. See pic, it's somewhat low resolution but you can see on the crown that there are two distinct lines with a space in between them to indicate a thicker line width. The same concept is used on the eyes, where instead of doing it in a solid black they draw the entire outline of the eye, even around the eyelashes.
