>>2630997 Knowing his/her ambitions/backstory/abilities or powers. Your pick has a scarred up, somewhat feminine/boyish character many pieces of clothing shows he/she has a grenade like ability etc. Think of what the character is before deciding how the character will look.
>>2630997 Well the obvious elements of appealing design (asymmetry, shape language, simple silhouette, complimentary color palette etc.) + storytelling. By storytelling I mean that it shouldn't be random, every asset should be somehow rooted in the character's abilities, backstory or temperament. It should be recognizable and memorable, just by looking at the design one should be able to deduce who they are/what they do.
I got an idea for a new long lasting web comic and I have so many ideas that would leave me to busy focusing on one comic . But I want you to decide which Idea would be better and could last pretty long for a web comic? > A sci-fi where anthro characters and human characters fight against former humanoid robots to save the planet from a robot invasion.
>A fantasy comic with anthro (can be humans too) where beasts can be slain but it will have to have a story line to the modern era (can be nsfw but separate... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Wich one is the "easiest" (I know there's no real easy tho) path, for someone who starts out late and will probably only have barely ok skills? I'm guessing comics, since some top selling comics of any nationality sometimes have clearly flawed fundamentals. But then comics is also probably harder than illustration, because I suppose some illustrators can just repeat themselves, polish, and avoid doing what they don't know how to do (backgrounds, random props...) Animation seems... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2634373 There's examples of popular work with flawed fundamentals in all 3. I think illustration is the easiest since you don't have to think of a story or think of things sequentially like you do with the other 2. Animation (specifically 2D) is probably the hardest to get really good at imo.
Hey guys, I've had this issue with a sketchbook, or more accurately I've had an issue getting one. I want to be able to customize mine. The issue is that i can't seem to find any good places to do so. It's always just some site with a variety with the word 'Customization' plastered all over it when in fact it's nothing but a lie. Does anyone seem to know a good place, or a good solution to my issue. Also please excuse me if this isn't the right place to ask this. I've had a many sketchbooks in the past, but i want to have a really... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2634313 Just make your own. Binding sketchbooks isn't particularly difficult, or if you're lazy there are pre-made systems that you can invest in and just add your own paper, like the Staples Arc/Levenger/Circa, or Midori Traveler's Notebook. You can also buy your paper and take it to a print shop to have one bound.
>>2632019 The style looks pretty cool. I'm a beginner so take what I say with a grain, but I think the outlines could stand to be thinned down a bit. The skull itself is fuckhuge and looks a bit out of perspective as well.
it is difficult for me to tell if those artists are skilled or not. I don't see a tiny bit of anything I have learned in the books in their work, but it is so pleasant to watch. what is it? are they just good animators but bad at anything else? I think I have seem other non animated stuff that gives me the same feeling but I'm not sure. I think that if you are a good animator and have expressive drawings you can... Comment too long.

i'm 19 and i want to draw stuff like pic related, this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfbNS_GKhPw, cute pixiv girls, and doujin illustrations in 4 years (basically, when i leave college [studying cs, i.e. totally unrelated])
how many hours a day do you think i'll have to put in? is it realistic for 4 years? is it too late if i never took art classes since i was a baby?
i've designed some stuff for school that my teachers and friends thought were cool, but i'm guessing that means jack shit here for drawing figures anyway
>>2631533 Not really. Art history is so too broad to really encompass in any "best of" list, best thing to do is probably find an abbreviated history of the eras and movements like: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_art And find out what you like, then look deeper into those topics.
That looks really cool. A lil' question - graphite is made of carbon dust and clay, charcoal is anaerobically burnt wood ... and a carbon pencil is - what exactly? My retarded language uses the same name for both tools.
>Stephen Silver - Why I Can't Support CTN EXPO Anymore
Any of you guys been to CTN expo in Burbank, CA? I went there last year and it was really expensive. The "fast passes" were pricey and weren't really fast at all. I still had to wait in line for an hour and a half for panels. It was my first time there but what I've heard from my peers is that it's a good place to network.
Hi /ic/ I was wondering if anyone could tell me the name for the painting technique where the majority of the image is built up of layers of small vertical strokes, rather than strokes that twist and curve, following the surface of the imaginary forms being depicted. It's sort of similar to pointillism, and I mostly see it in older artworks, I don't think many people use this technique anymore. Does anybody know what I'm talking about? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Pic Unrelated, I cant think of any pieces offhand that utilize the technique... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2632301 Very very close! The only difference is that the entirety of the piece would be composed of strokes going vertically, rather than in multiple directions. This piece has strokes going horizontally, vertically, diagonally, etc. Beautiful painting though.
>In a recent Wall Street Journal article, Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior, Amy Chua gives the Chinese recipe for success. Ms. Chua is a professor at Yale Law School, so apparently the strategy worked with her; and the article contains a picture of her daughter playing piano at Carnegie Hall, so she seems to have implemented it effectively.
