Hey, /ic/. What exactly is depth perception?
I was born with only one functioning eye, and I wanted to know if my lack of an eye would affect drawing or something.
Your pupils are about 2.5" apart give or take, the difference in viewing angle hits the brain and it figures out how far away that thing is and give a sense of the shape.
It's a good practice to pick an eye to observe from anyway as switching between them can cause inconsistencies.
There are probably artists that use it to their advantage but I don't really know and it seems like something that would require pretty heavy specialization to exploit in a meaningful way.
Do you use porn pictures for studying?
How can I even draw if my dick is so hard that if I look down it goes into my mouth?
Jesus christ man, yeah I'm thristy af
and no don't tell me to draw ugly people, I also have a fetish 4 ugly girls
Anyone here have a patreon making at least something?
How do you got people to pledge to you? How do you plan your rewards? Is patreon a tip jar or a service?
Does Incase still lurks here? Please share your wisdom
Also to anyone who have a patreon in general, post yours and tell us your experience.
Looking for some constructive criticism.
I kind of suck, so go easy on me......
can we get a references / tutorials / helpful shit thread going?
i'll be dumping some of my collection as well
Okay, /ic/, help a brother out.
I'm a new artist working my way through drawing and I've about completed the better part of the Dodson book, but I'm having trouble really increasing my grasp of fundamentals, and as a result I feel that I'm not improving nearly as fast as I could be.
I come from a musical background where technical improvement is something that can be pretty clearly mapped out in terms of the grind. I can grind scales for technical precision, then learn or write a song to apply, I see the order of things and it makes sense....
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
what >>2389610 said. drawabox is a great grind.
go do gesture drawings, too! i did music as well, and just keep in mind - just like when you're transcribing music, don't worry about the individual notes at first. get the general flow of the phrase and then work to get the individual notes (details).
for now. Those exercises are good, but not what you want. The grind you seek is academic cast drawing. Start sight-size method then switch to the comparative method. Take your time and do it right. In the same way that scales train required muscle memory this will train "muscle memory" for four important faculties:
Accurate value observation
Accurate proportion observation

Why is it so hard to profit from making porn?
Same guy. He made a thread on Newgrounds.
Is this you OP?
Here's why people fail
>draws like shit
>no followers/fanbase (need min 100,000 to make $1000/mo)
Why would someone pay for a pic of feces?
Why would someone pay a non-famous artist they can't show off to their friends on IG?
You have no value until you get good.
You have no market until you get well-known.
Hey /ic/. I was looking for that recent contemporary art piece that was literally just a hole in a wall, that won an award or something.
I've looked for a while now after seeing it on /ic/, but I can't find it again. Does anyone know what it was called?
Bump, because fuck you faggot op
Do any of you know any good artists who combine traditional and digital?
I love sketching and linework but I don't want to color tradtionally, I like digital color but want to keep the same sketchy line feeling and damn I have no idea how.
Do people even do that ever?
Say hi to Patrick.
Why is picasso so popular again?
he had good marketing, now he has good history. He doesnt need to be good. Then theres that one guy whos gonna come in and say he lied and made his dad do works for him. some other guy will say youre ignorant about art history. and a fight will ensue
he was on the cutting edge of art for decades, invented cubism, inspired countless artists, was a pillar of the modernist era, was alive through and participated in many different movements, and was perhaps the most prolific artist ever.
Does anyone here do sacred geometry or does anyone here have links for beginners?
Also, does anyone have torrents or videos they can provide to learn about drawing these shapes and getting deeper into the philosophy?
Fuck off with this horseshit from here. Go to /x/ or somewhere where retards like you are welcome.
i found these spammed to a thread in /r9k/
i love them
they portray carelessness and depression, yet have a side of hope and wonder to them
its as if they come from the world view of someone who's trapped, yet sees their chance of escape and happiness.
you all may see them as trash, but if your willing to, look for the emotion within them
When it comes to the concept of artistic genius, do you think that the ability to express emotion through a work of art is something all artistic geniuses share?
I completely agree but I have an Art History essay due next week and I am basically pulling stuff out my ass at this point trying to sound intellectual.
>Michelangelo has been referred to as a High Renaissance genius by many art historian's. Clarify your opinion toward this comment and discuss how you relate the concept of artistic genius to his work.
Advice? Besides fuck off I mean
