2017/01/28: An issue regarding the front page of /jp/ has been fixed. Also, thanks to all who contacted us about sponsorship.
Recently I'm obsessed with Paul Binnie's Japanese woodblock prints. Anyone else adore him or have any artists that are similar?
How the fuck does an AI do this shit? They are just getting better and better. At this rate all the art jobs will be gone by the time I git gud cause of all these damn dirty bots.How can we stop the robot take over?
Unless these programs become self-aware or conscious, then they always need to rely on an input from a photograph. They cannot create something from the imagination like humans can.They're just more advanced PS filters.
>>2873167so wutcha saying is that Concept artists are going to be a thing of the past?
>>2873218>tfw artists will be a thing of the past one dayI hope all this fundamentals ain't for nothing and /ic/ wasn't just memeing me.
>>2873219By the time AI can automate the entire creative process every job will be automated.
>>2873073fuck i laughed too hard at this,.
Quick question....do you think that 3D art is UNDER represented on this board ? I get the vibe that this is some angry 2D only boardDo half of you even know anything about 3D and how fast it is?
this thread is heating upget out the lawn chairs and kick back boys
>3d>fastNot really. Takes me ages to even model a fucking toy gun I could draw in 15 seconds. Characters are even harder. But the moment you get something right you can use it forever, so that's good.
>>2872853Yeah 3D definitely deserves more love here, I think if we're fine accepting the porn threads I don't see why we can't have a 3D thread too. Considering the large number of aspiring concept artists on this board it seems fitting.
>>2873103you're the biggest troll on /3/, posting that hideous model for years now
What is the best art program for drawing?
>>2873557True. I'm just glad somebody has already created just about every brush I want (Thanks David Revoy)
PaintStorm seems to be graining ground, I might give it a try. But I think Photoshop is pretty masterace, to be honest
The reason for using anything other than photoshop is just that you don't want to use photoshop. The reason for using photoshop is that you want the best.
Corel Painter for sketching, lines and painting, Photoshop for adjustments.

mathias is pretty cute.
Is Choob dumb? why does he keep copying photos?
>>2873800Sorry, /las/ is closed until 9:00pm GMT+0. Thank you for your comprehension.
>>2873800You think its a low i.q. thing? I never thought of it that way, I think people just fear the criticism that might come with it, look at what happened to Proko.
Hey /ic/ Newfag here,I'm looking to find similar artwork to my own or anything that is geometric please dump what ever you got.Also what do you think of the drawing out of interest?

I want to get your thoughts, feelings about those pictures.
>>2872808nostalgia for when I was a young teenager and all my ideas were trite attempts to appear edgy.
Brazilian here.I don't get it. It appears that the picture is trying to pinpoint everything bad that has happened to the world on capitalism?It makes no sense. Sounds like a dumb teenager or something.
It's making porn illustrations the only way to have success in patreon?I mean; I can't find a SFW artist that earn the money than Norasuko, DoxyDoo or even Sinner earn per week.
>>28737661600 a month is minimum wage at 40hrs a week. So 3000 a month seems pretty good to someone like me
>>28737681000 per week after tax is mediocre, but definitely very liveable. 3000 is definitely a high income. I'd love to make 1000 a week drawing porn desu
>>2873769But only retards make minimum wage in their careers after school (or even without school.) If you're making minimum wage as an independent then you really need to look into HVAC or Plumbing or Advertising...
>>2873767if it is not pornographic I do not have risks?
>>28737661000 per month is good depends on where you live.T. Europoor
>>2873200Is it just me or is his left arm's anatomy just ever so slightly off?

>>2872547>people with this inhuman level of patience and precision wasting their time drawing household objects
Can anyone recommend some audio books which can help improve you art? I love listening to them while drawing or driving my car.Up untill now I've mainly been listening to fiction, while it does help with imagination, maybe there are some better options out there.(download links would be appreciated)
>>2872502>which can help improve you art?There's a podcast of Anders Ericsson about focused practice and deep learning. It will serve your purposes. (I'll post link later. I'm on my phone.)
>>2872505Great, Podcasts are always welcome too!
I guess there isnt really anything?
>>2872505I highly recommend the book: Peak: Secrets from the New Science of ExpertiseIt's on Audible if you use that.
Made this a few days ago. Any advice on how to improve?
this seems like the sort of thing that would look pretty appealing as a paper cut out
>>2872476These images just keep getting spicier.
What's a good job to pay bills with while trying to make it as an artist?I recently left my last job in engineering, after several years of doing this I have no intention of getting another job in engineering since it requires me to devote a lot of my time in and out of work to absorbing and learning new practices. Constantly being immersed in that didn't leave time to work on art long enough for it to take off as my full-time job. My ideal is to make $2400 a month without having to invest more than 40 hours a week, I can work most jobs with technical requirements because of my background.I'm considering working as a pizza deliveryman since it pays modestly well for the time involved, allows me to listen to e-books on the job for learning, and won't mentally drain me when I go home to work on art. It also gets me out of the house (unlike online jobs). Working as a bar-back also seems pretty nice. Others recommended transcribing (not very stable since it's on-call), dogwalking (I will be too exhausted when I go home to work on art), house-sitting (more difficult to find work since I am male), waiting tables (extremely stressful and need to be on feet for entire day), or customer support call-centers (does not pay very well).

>>2873336>just tell him I expect a fair payJust imagining a russian guy saying this, I think you would want to hire this guy.
how much experience do you have as an engineer? I'm surprised you haven't thought of saving money for a year or two then immigrating to some eastern country and work there.the strong currency conversion should keep you afloat for longer than you've saved for (living expenses wise) and companies there are always looking for experienced engineers for their shit. your years of experience could give you the upper hand and demand less time working. meanwhile, you can take advantage of big name universities to learn some other college course. take your pick with singapore or philippines. those are english speaking countries but their art/animation programs are shit
btw OP, what kind of artist do you want to be?
Why do you keep your clip attached to your mechanical pencil (or lead holder) /ic/?Do you dislike being able to comfortably rotate your lead to get a better edge to render with? Surely you don't actually use it to clip to your pocket because you use a pencil bag to carry your materials.The first thing I do with any newly purchased mechanical pencil (or lead holder) I intend to draw with is to pull off that nuisance clip.
Is this just autism the thread or am I missing something?
>>2872606no, this is autism the website, i don't know what you were expecting
>>2872593>>2872598sandpaper, works for any kind of lead/pencil, better than any sharpener also easier to carry around with you.
>>2872363To counterbalance the tip weight
"If you can imagine something that weighs six stone or so, is on the point of death and has no qualities of the human condition that aren’t revolting, calmly lying there with a pencil and a scrap of paper, drawing, you have some idea of the difference of temperament that this man had from the ordinary human being."so what's your excuse /ic/?
>>2872287>so what's your excuse /ic/?I want to achieve kjg mod
>>2872321have you tried learning fundamentals + 40000 combined hours of drawing?
>>2872321Holy shit! I never noticed that kjg had tiny t-Rex arms. Is that the secret to getting on his level? It all makes sense now. If you have shorter arms than your ligamemes have to expend less energy on sending messages to your brain, that extra ligameme power must be what makes him so skilled.Brb getting arm shortening surgery
>>2872334he doesn't have t-rex arms, he must be wearing his pants low
I hate my work and everything I create. I want to die.
>>2872538Pretty much this.It's not a bad thing, it means that you can see your mistakes.Last time I thought I was good at drawing was when I was around 12 and just getting started.At 14 I realized that everything I've done up until that point is fucking terrible and that likewise my current drawings are, just that I can't see it because, well, I don't know any better. If I knew better, I'd draw better.Nowadays I sort of maybe find some of my paintings okay-ish, but not for longer than few days. And that's fine. No way to go but forward. Just keep drawing.
>>2872253The alternative is that you think everything you make is a gift from God and a masterpiece.You got the better deal, OP. Because at least now you can improve.
>>2872253Fucking do it
>>2872253>I hate my work and everything I create. I want to die.Good, that means you're improving.
>>2872340>tripfag>pseudoscienceBet you read "drawing of the right side of the brain" cover to cover.
Hi /ic/ I'm new here so please forgive me if my etiquette is poor.So I'm looking over the tutorials and starting to teach myself to draw, but almost all of them are geared towards drawing people or characters of some sort.I'm not really interested in drawing people at all. I actually want to learn to paint landscapes, and was planning on using drawing as a bridge to learn form and shade. Should I still do the beginner tutorials designed to teach me how to draw people? I mean I'm sure the tutorials are useful in general for technique but I can't imagine I can go much further down that road if I'm not interested in people.Thanks for your help.
>>2872241That's a good idea, just taking random places in Maps and painting that. I notice your work is digital. Did you start in digital or on paper? I've heard that starting as a beginner to digital is a mistake because working with the physical materials give you a better impression of how to work digital tools. If you did start with digital and you think it's good, could you recommend some entry-tier peripherals?>>2872243This art is beautiful and I'd love to be able to make something even half as good as it.
>>2872240>Do you think I should start with watercolours?Maybe charcoal and graphite would be a better to start with, since you wouldn't have to worry about color mixing, just values. Still, watercolors force you to think about shape design and all that. Cheap tube watercolors have worked well in my experience. You are only going to have trouble if you want to make richly colored paintings. As a beginner, you could just use them to color in your drawings at first.I suggest getting in the habit of drawing landscapes outside, or through the window, then moving into watercolors if you enjoy it.
>>2872257I figure if I start with watercolours I'd probably start by painting airy scenes like rolling hills or small ponds.I've heard charcoal is really messy. Is graphite a bit better?If I'm drawing with graphite/charcoal, how could I colour them in? I imagine the purpose of these materials is to focus on shadow rather than hue and so you'd be painting over the top of your shading.Unfortunately I live in the city, so the best I could do is paint the house directly opposite mine. I'm sure there's lots of stuff online I can draw from as well, though.
>>2872205Learn and master perspective and construction by studying environments, move into rendering and learn composition skills.
>>2872216Since I started painting I've been noticing how great hollywood is in that regard. Even some of the worst movies had great visuals, beautiful environments and cool designs all around.As an example, the Total Recall remake. Shitty movie. I hated on first watch, specially lens flare and how it butchered the original, but a few weeks ago I watched a few scenes again, and it was a whole new experience. Even rooms, or simple things like chairs and tables made me moist.It's obvious to me now how the scifi genre specially have always been carried by masters concept artist and designers.
All critiques welcome as I'm trying to get better
>>2872468YOU realize by stealing and posting his shit youe just making him stay around longer.... gawd you're an idiot, we want him fucking gone. Not a new thread meming him every 2 days
>>2872358 Just keep drawing big Mike, fuck the haters my man they're just jealous butthurt losers lmoa
>>2872793Nice try, Mike.
>>2872371apparently it was by the OP so there is that evidence>>2872427didnt make this one ,but i plan to use it>>2872468thats too bad cause i love all you guys>>2872488im sure these guys will explain it far better than i can. all ive been doing is drawing>>2872490yea all troll threads, none were me>>2872498hope you enjoy yourself>>2872510sorry to hear that>>2872514yep>>2872793exactly lol>>2872804ummm thanks lol>>2873100ummm sure man, sure...
