how does /ic/ recommend coming up with a name to post your work under?
Mine is pretty unfortunate, almost sharing the same name as a well known celebrity. i'd never have a chance at being found through google using my real name
it's the last thing stopping me from posting my work online. pic kinda related
Do you have a nickname people call you? Does your name sound similar to any words? Andrew Jones used Android Jones because it fits his name and his interests. Or just use a middle initial or something and use your real name. If you have a foreign or long name you can shorten it or change it a bit. Frazetta was originally spelled Frazzetta but he changed it because it is more memorable with one z.
Forgot to mention that a lot of pros picked stupid as fuck online handles and still made it big in the industry. Spoogedemon, Prostate Sunrise, Colepoopface, Mr. Delicious etc. They all switched eventually to their real names though.
Anyone know of a book about an Artist?, like a cool one, i tend to idolize characters from books, and copy off interesting and eccentric habits, i think it would help me if it was from this perspective
If it's in your sketchbook, it belongs in this thread.
>Round 1 involves a well-known artist selecting 30 entries
>Round 2 involves the general public voting for the 10 best entries online
>Round 3 involves the judges from the organisation choosing the best 5 entries
Should I join this art competition? I'm not much more social than the average /r9k/ user and I think I will struggle with round 2.
I have a debate going on. There are two sides - people who way that this is purple, and people who think it's pink.
Well what color do you think??
I would say lavender. But who cares? It really doesn't matter what you call it, and your art won't be better or worse because you call it pink or purple. Colour is relative anyways, so it may look pink in one image, purple in another, and maybe even blue in another.
Based @oltlo lately started posting some nice figure drawing OuO
And the reflected light is too strong.
Pic related, how it should look like.
redpill me on good armor design
who else unemployed average tier artist who lives in existential dread about the future here?
I'm so scared, I even sabotage the opportunities I do get because I feel like I'm just gonna build myself up for disappointment when it all falls apart anyway.
this is super normal anon. failure is a prerequisite to success. everyone who made blew countless opportunities on their way there.
i've let potentially great opportunities and jobs pass me by never replying to emails. i was so anxious that i waited for so long trying to word it and draft it perfectly, eventually it would have been so late that i chose just not to reply at all. lol.
Is life experience essential for becoming a 'good' artist?
But isnt drawing itself a life experience?

So /ic/, I have recently acquired a surface pro tablet and see it as a perfect opportunity to begin drawing again. However I don't know which programs to use. If you could suggest some programs that you personally use or know to be decent, I would appreciate it. In the past I have used photoshop but never very well.
Whats in your comfort zones /ic/ ?
What do you think about this guy?
