I like the fact that you're drawing.

I don't like the fact that you felt like this deserved a thread instead of posting it in the beginner thread.

What's the limit on drawing on a layer of someone else's art and making your own edits before it becomes plagiarism?

I've saved a huge HD of manga/anime to trace from for my comic, and it's saving a lot of time rather than constructing the panels myself. But I don't want some autists to accuse me of plagiarism.

There's nothing wrong with referencing poses directly via comparison, afterall we do it everyday by transmitting visual data from our eyes to our hands, but you will NEVER become even a halfway decent artist if you don't learn to draw off of your own steam first. When you trace you learn absolutely nothing.

Particularly, I'm in love with the design the clothing in this style has, so if there's a name for that, it'd help immensely. But I also enjoy the linework, though that's easier to emulate.

I've painted a mock-up of the colors and themes I want for background type shit in the bottom middle as well if anyone has a source for some similar shit that might inspire me.

Also, has anyone here tried contacting industry artists? Do you think doing so could help bring insight as to how to go about learning to emulate their aesthetics?

Yeah if you know Japanese perhaps

>> No.3175559

basically, Japanese loves to use gothic style and classical baroque style to their art.

and that they carry over to the character designs and fashion. in that particular case, its the pastel colors the designer is using so you don't really immediately recognize the style they use.

and what do you mean by industry artists?

>> No.3175668

People who actually make this art, is what I mean.

And yeah, I'm a fan of gothic stuff myself and was considering that it might be modified gothic style.

Thanks for the reply, btw.

I think that at least drawing shitty sketches is a step forward first. You don't spend too much time on them, so you're not afraid to throw them out.

When you get better, you'll see what sketch is worth working on and which is just a mistake that you should throw away.

If you know Mark Carder's YT channel, he's a realist painter who paints pretty damn amazing still lifes, but his stuff from imagination is shit. Like /beg/ tier, pure shit. Muddy colors, shit drawing, terrible perspective. It's just what happens when you learn to paint academically and all you can do is sight size.

Now what's particularly fishy about Proko is that what he teaches on his channel is a constructive method, which in theory should enable him to at least nail the basic shapes of imaginary things. But he shows none of that. It's as if he copied anatomical drawings 1:1 and made it look like he knows shit about construction.

I've been wondering, for those who went to art school, were you ever given simple yet difficult to answer questions? Basic who, what, when, where and why questions regarding your taste and path.I.E Who are your favorite artists?, when did your start?, where do you see yourself in a few years?, why do you draw? how did you going about answering them? I don't plan on going to art school myself, but still I feel they are important to question to keep a fresh mind on the extent of your knowledge, where you are and where you want to be.

anyways the main gist is about the questions that go in depth, say: Explain why you choose this piece of art(2d of course painting or drawing digital or trad). just how far can you take it? and does the length and clarity of the answer portray your skill? if you're already at least a decent artist does your answer reveal just how much you know and actually be a hack?

Just how technical can we go in digital and traditional b4 we make our selves look dumb and pretentious?

sorry for all the questions.

Art teachers vary at my school. Its either "everyones a special snowflake and you cant mess up art" to brutally honest and real world "you think this is going to fucking sell? You have to be better than everyone in the class not to mention other schools to have a practical job." and honestly I love the honesty. I love out performing others.

Hey /ic/ I'm currently an artist making their way through traditional art school (primarily 2d) and I've come into somewhat of an issue.

Now to give some context, my school is very traditional. We have no digital art classes aside from the typical graphic design classes and one digital photography class (it's less about the art and more about how to take good photography of a subject; portrait, store fronts, interiors and whatnot) No classes in digital painting, animation, 3d modelling, image manipulation, or anything.

So I'm in painting, all well and good- traditional skills are important and I really enjoy them, but I would like to do something different. Our assignment is to take two "Masterpieces", say Van Gogh's "Starry Night" and Whistler's "Portrait of the Artist's Mother" and combine them in some way while still having good composition, focal points, technique, etc. Being someone who is very interested in the digital realm, I of course want to take two digital masterpieces and bring them together.

The only problem is, due to my lack of formal education on digital artists, I've found that very difficult to do. I don't really know what artworks would be considered masterpieces or not. So I've come to you, /ic/, to give me suggestions on what art is groundbreaking nowadays, and (to make sure it fits within the rules) WHY they're relevant. After all, I need to explain to my art professor why they're masterpieces as well.

In terms of style I'm very much open to anything. I've featured an Alyn Spiller as my pic, and is something I really liked. He's been in the field and on some very important creations for a long time so I thought he might be relevant.

that's the age we live in, my man....

you know, the funny thing is there are always artists that hate the art of their time... artists of the time hated William Bouguereau because his stuff was too rendered... same thing for Von Gogh. you're one of those people. are there any digital artists that make technically skilled, aesthetic, meaningful art?

having to always have a deep meaningful theme for a painting would make for a miserable time imo, and much less material would be output.

People also have to consider that the great painters still did have to do drab stuff to put food on the table. This is like that to them.

the paintings in this thread may be "shallow" but it's not doubt high skilled pieces and can go in a work portfolio. these painters don't have time to be the stereotypical tortured artist, always needing deep, meaningful theme for each painting. The ones that do try to have a meaningful theme usually do it in comic strip form
desu the painters now who try to make deep pieces probably don't make any money to make a career out of it. if painter wants to be able to do what they love - paint, they need money, and the money is currently in the "shallow" video game/movie poster-tier art
