Considering this is /ic,
I think it would be cool to have a thread where we post pictures of animals and creatures that seem to have a strangely human-like appearence to them.
This could also be a good place to gather references as well and give some artists a decent insight into how animals can look at times.

I will go first. In photoshop Instead of flattening layers try this:

Be on a active layer and press ctrl+shift+alt+E and it will give you a copy of all visible layers without actually forcing you to collapse everything.

>> No.3486713

most used ones

shift+F5 fill with foreground color
ctrl+alt+g create clipping layer

Do people care if your art is good.

Let me explain what I mean.

There's two artists:
One draw every day, but is mediocre as fuck and make art about anything and even do a lot of even porn and is just a fucking machine producing every day.
But he's mediocre as fuck and his art skills are mediocre.

The other has top tier elite art, but doesn't produce a lot and maybe produces an illustration when he wants, but he's unreliable.
But he was born with the magical talent skill.

Which one will succeed?

How to get faster at painting? I'm very embarrassed to say this took hours to get to pic's point, (and I'm still working on it) but in my defense this is the third time I've ever tried to paint something. And while you're at it, roast me with directions on how to improve, would appreciate. Away from reference atm.

Haha you're right. If I keep doing it this way and guessing will I eventually learn form from brute force?

it wont be efficient and it will take a long ass time and it may never actually happen. if you actually study form and light you can apply the concepts to any object and any environment without spending hours and hours and hours just guessing until it looks right with every new environment and object

Lets have one. What is /ic/'s general consensus on his work? (or your personal opinion, at least)
I prefer his style over hgjart and ruan jia or whichever other chinks you guys keep blabbing about. They're better technically, yes, but shit there's just something special about krenz for me that seems to be absent in their respective styles.

>> No.3486425

the man knows how to use gray in his work and that's one reason why I appreciate his stuff. he uses neutral colors so effectively in combination with saturation/chroma with this soft rendering. its so right. part of this is mastering the grayscale to color technique.

Most people here are recluses and nerds in general, so to follow a path in video games seems to be the logical choice.
I thought the same until I realized I don't work well under pressure and suffer a serious case of perfectionism - the exact opposite of what could give me the advantage at the job.
More people should do this reality check imo, the answer is probably something you already know and stems out of your temper and the things you've generally been good at.
Now I'm working my way happily towards illustration for book publishing and I feel like I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be.

Because it’s the easiest one. All you have to be able to do is photobash, 3D and iterate a lot. Being a patreon artist is significantly more difficult because it’s popularity based similar to being an illustrator. Concept artists are like a dime a dozen and at least get paid as much as another trade job.

Hey /ic/ I started a website critique thread a while ago and ditched when someone told me to post it somewhere else.

But I noticed it actually got a response and I felt bad I didn't notice until now! So I wanted to say thank you and I'm taking the advice to heart and getting started on revamping the look a bit, and getting rid of the useless cover page :')

Sorry for this useless thread but I have a guilt complex. Talk about websites below or whatever or just have a general discussion. Thanks!

I’m trying to make a brand that overthrows convential thinking of art since the industry is dominated by rich people who buy paintings and stifle newness cuz they’re only purchasing it as some sort of new currency that’s just some “investment”. Is creating a perfume art? Is creating a 3D character art? Is designing clothes for a 3D character that u can buy IRL art? Help! What am I creating? Capitalism veiled as art?

Well, here's the problem with your art
It fails to convey what it truly means to be LGBTQ+
You're making the mistake that you can be just trans, but in actuality you're not just trans, just like you can't just be gay or lesbian. You're actually LGBTQ+, so you need to find a way to convey that
Also, to fully capture the essence of trans in your art, you need to make it look more demonic
