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.

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.

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.

To 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

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 Photoshop

I 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.

You'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.

Having used both programs, I have to agree. I almost never draw in PS now.

sup /ic/ thought I'd share something I finished today

Its 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.

A few questions to ask yourself:

>What is the cost of materials?

>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?

Depends 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.

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)

Think 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?
