This thread is for posting reference. Also , the old one should be archived
Is there some website i can just browse through pictures of females (nude and non-nude) for the purpose of references?
Ive been using idol.sankakucomplex but 90% of the shit there isnt tagged properly so its not good for when im looking for specific stuff and i dont even mean very specfic, there are like 3 results for when you search for something as simple as "bending over"
Also used pinterest for a bit but its shit
How did the artists make energy affects look all bright and glowy? I remember watching it back in the 90s trying to figure out how they made things shiny but never figured it out.
It's true, they looked so fucking boss
No anime in the last 20 years has done this effect
Is there a consensus on which sketchbook is the best to by from Kim Jung Gi? I'm thinking of getting one for christmas.
Looking for pictures/drawings of a spider crawling out from under the skin. For some reason can not find on the internet...
other than selling art
My vote goes to Theo Prins.
Not his speciality but Ruan Jia
Hey guys, I don't usually post here, so sorry if I did something wrong but can you guys tell me if I'm good enough for art school?
Because we should not have to make new threads or post in draw threads with our fundamental exercises.
Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make your mom proud.
AVOID asking unrelated questions, there is a question thread for that.
RESIZE YOUR IMAGES TO ~1000 PIXELS:

What is your preference for drawing tablets?
I was looking at a Huion 680TF because of my price range, but I'm sure you experts here could give some good info on your own personal experience of different brands and models.
i've had an intuos 3 for a long ass time
- super sensitive. i get great lines
- best pen imo. good grip + weight and no battery required
- decent price if you get it pre-owned, probably around 100-200$
- good amount of buttons, not too many but not too little that it's like useless
- older model so some newer animation programs may not work like toonboom harmony 12
- annoying little touch sliders on both sides that i dont really use but you might find use in them idk
I've only tried the Wacom brands. I tried bamboo, Intuos, and Cintiq (I think 21ux).
Any of the Intuos are fine. They're much smoother and sensitive than Bamboo, but you shouldn't notice much different between the two lines if you're just painting. For lineart, I would get an Intuos. Any non-screen tablets beyond Intuos3 has negligible perks not worth paying extra for IMO, especially if you're not an industrial professional. If you're a decent artist the tool doesn't have to be extremely precise. A lot of great indie artists and animators use the cheap bamboo line. If you ever want to upgrade, do it when you get better and save up via commissions.
I sold all my tablets and stuck with a small Intuos2 for over ten years. It's definitely built to last and it works great. It didn't give me the "upgrades" (extra headache) that often come with newer models, just the basics.
Is the hair going well? What can I do to make it look better? Also, how can I paint the eyes? I'll post the reference in a sec
Step 1-Look at the image
Step 2-Replicate it
It's not that hard. You're not going to get the hair right using that brush btw but it's okay.
Your painting isn't bad at all it just needs more work, you're doing good.
>/ic is a massive cunt
>someone who's 19 or older made this
Let's all boost our egos by laughing at people who are worse at art than we are.
I've looked at crockpots and burners but they all run way too hot even at lowest settings.
Hot box has worked fine for me and pretty simple to set up.
where can I find photo references of women with different body types??
I'm tired of drawing the same skinny bitches over and over....
It's not like I wanna see huge girls, but a little diversity would be appreciated, you guys feel me?
Hey /ic/! What do you guys use to share/showcase/promote your artwork?
Tumblr? DeviantArt? Some other stuff I never heard of?
I really been out of touch with the community since I been focused on coding/learning the software but want to be able start getting my name out there as I get better
Using tags can be handy. If your drawings are related to a popular series, tag the series in your posts and people are bound to find them. Submitting to fandom blogs is also helpful. Glad to hear you like my stuff, it means a lot.
(sorry if this comes out shitty, i'll try my best to be coherent)
so i have been interested in /ic/ and /gd/ related things since high-school but lately there seems to be a shift in passions. I'm fulled invested in trying to git gud with my art but i'm starting to shun graphic design related stuff (you know that kid in your highschool class who would ask the teacher ''when am i going to use this in real life'' when ever the math would get to much for him/her?, thats how i feel when i attempt to practice any graphic design these days)...

I guarantee you would've gotten more attention had you not had that picture.
I'd offer advice but I'm no veteran, I've only just begun on the path of GD/IC kinda shit.
Post your favorite contemporary drawing artists, (or draftsmen ?..)..figures, portraits, abstract, whatever
this artist is Chloe Piene
>in order to get good you must study 6 to 8 hours plus every day
Does this incude breaks or should you use a count down timer that only counts down when your doing your work?
When someone says they work 40 hours a week they don't account for breaks, plus Feng says some students study for 16 hours or more a lnd they have to take breaks at least a few times a day
What does /ic/ think of Frank Frazzetta?
His paintings are great, but his ink drawings are even better.
Note: Mind the shitty style, i just want help with anatomy and dicks
Why is it so fucking hard to find references for clothing drapery? There are dozens of books you can get with people in the nude or tight-fitting clothing in a huge variety of poses, but there doesn't seem to be any serious resources for more substantial costumes. Why can't I find a book of people photographed in costume? There has to be a market for such a thing.
Hi everyone, I'm in a huge lack of inspiration right now. I just made an acrylic background, and I absolutly don't know what to put on it...
Anybody's got an idea of what I could paint?
>I'm in a huge lack of inspiration right now
idk if anyone here can help you with that
i would say go see a movie youve been wanting to see, or read a book, or play a game
you wont get inspired by sitting waiting for inspiration
The tanks looks ok but the forest in the background looks like garbage and the mud under the tanks could also do some work. How do you draw a good forest while still following the rules of a polandball comic?
Keep it abstract. Don't draw trunks and trees, just a vague lumpy shape along the horizon.
Show the surface of the road with round blobs getting smaller with distance.
Fade things in the background. The further away they are, the paler and less saturated they should be.
Make the tanks themselves look more like the polandball style. Use outlines and lose details. You don't need to see the engine vents or turret brackets.
Do any of you guys use Atarichan?
Wow, this is pretty cool.
Too bad I only have a mouse.
This question addresses any anions with an interest in sculpture; do you know of any good resources for learning sculpture? And also how am I supposed to approach sculpting from a photo? Do you have any good reference from different angles?
What do you think about this painting?
It's huge, it's from Mexico. Supposedly super expensive, done by one of the best painters in Mexico. At least that's what the rich guy told me about the painting.
So, what do you think?
I think it's awesome but I don't know shit about critique
I draw from 11 00 to 14 00 and then rest and then from 16 30 to 20 00 every day I can, but I'm realizing I'm bored when I rest, I come to /ic/ and see some great drawings and just want to keep drawing, playing video games is no longer interesting, what other activities can I do to prevent myself from just drawing and burning myself out of motivation?
Hi /ic/, can you help me find this painting? It's vaguely similar to pic related in terms of the subject; a dog looking out of an opened door; the world beyond the door is dark. I don't have the painting saved, unfortunately.
I don't want to end up doing such a tasteless vulgar crap after 5 years/12 hours per day -study. How to protect my future works from a bad taste?
What shows/comics/works have an art-style that is not too "animu" nor too "cartoony"?
I mean one that has found the perfect balance between both styles.
pic related maybe?
He was (and still is) the private james ramirez of Capcom.
I think Little Witch Academia does it well.
If you want something more "cartoony", I'd say Kaiba or Metropolis.
But then again, what do you mean by "anime" style?
