any good places where i can grey scale clay renders of characters and environments and weapons? i love drawing from them and using them as a starting point for challenging my imaginations. i need allot of them from diffrent angles etc etc. thanks familianos
You could use Daz or Poser and make your own. You can get a handful of figures and outfits for free and the paid content is often shared on torrent sites (unfortunately the biggest one was KAT, which just got taken down).
Or you can go to anatomy 360. They have a few 3d scans of real people you can use. Getting their models costs money, but lots of the images are free.
>>2612389 everyones got their own method of learning/painting, its kind of tired advice by now, but the best thing to do is practice of course having a good understanding about anatomy helps but in the end you just kinda gotta find you own way there i personally would say try your hand at any methods you can and see what works for you and if none do, find the best then adapt it
as for me, i still use lineart in my paintings and blend/work them into the painting. its all based on how youre comfortable doing it
>>2612389 The two aren't different things, drawing is a step towards painting. Learning how to properly grip and control your pencil, how to measure and block-in shapes, how to map values, are all things that will help smooth the transition. You don't want to be wasting expensive paint when you can't properly represent your subject.
The more painterly you start with a design the less structured it will be and you will run into problems if you want it to make sense, which is not always necessary. It's a good way to generate new ideas. You doodle some lines and then you see shapes in there (like when looking at clouds). The designs are to a certain degree bullshit, but they convey a feel.
When you make line sketch designs you need to have a clearer idea of what it is you want to draw. It's more analytical.
Work on your ellipses. Don't make things in your background so bright such as the goop an the purple (Space? Data Streams?) tears in the pipes. Continuity error with the what I assume is a creature in the bottom right. Where is whatever the purple stuff is and why isn't getting fragged, washed away, or emerging from it?
Like the others, I have no Idea what's going on. Try hanging out in the Pixel Art thread, they'll have better tips people who don't do pixel art, like me.
Has anyone here had experience doing artist alley?
I was able to get a table at NYCC this year and I know what kind of art stuff to bring but I have no idea what kind of stuff to set up and how to haul everything over there.
The con is 4 days long, from Thurs-Sun and setup in Wednesday the day before. Driving back and forth to Manhattan is out of the question, but hauling all this shit on a bus or subway may be impossible. I may end up getting a hotel room for the convenience, even though I live in Staten Island which is over an hour bus ride away, but I still have no idea how to transport everything like art supplies, prints, metal displays to hang shit up, etc.
What do you guys do? I would bring my car if there was a place to park nearby but it's impossible in nyc
>>2610110 Post a pic of the darn painting too! But just so you are prepared, chances are that this individual is just an average unknown kitch painter (in which there are thousands upon thousands) and the painting is only worth next to nothing.
>>2611214 You will never be able to put the things on paper, like how you imagined it. You will always imagine it much better. The only thing you can do, is getting as near as possible to your idea. But how near you get, is a question of how good you are at drawing.
This is going to eventually be a full painting (I hope), but in order to do that I need some good critiques before I do anything. This is a sincerely rough, rough, rough sketch as an idea. I'm going to use straight lines for the background and copy the window, etc. But until then I need help on the composition or anything else that can be assisted here. Thank you.
It's been forever and a day since I last used /ic/, ehe... :T
i'm not sure what to point out since i think it will look completely different once you fill the colours in and i dont know a lot about composition. I guess you could try making the ears flop back like the cape does, and mb generally making the figure follow a bit more exaggerated "action line"? or something, im not sure.
also what the hell did i see on the main "board" while looking for this post. what is this place
>>2611657 I'm worried about putting the ears back with the cape because then it might (due to physics) cover the chain the connects the cap, which I don't quite want to do because I definitely want to show that the cape is flying off....
I could try? And pull the cape back? Maybe. I don't know? Hm. Also what do you mean by "action line"?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIUI6ZdkLA4 Hey, how do you guys feel about this video. Do you think this is a valid tip? i'm coming from a background of only traditional drawing so i thought some digital painting tutorials would do me some good.
I agree 100% that you should use the rocker switch. It is incredibly useful. How you map the buttons is up to you, but I use one as Right Mouse Button to quickly switch brushes and brush size, and the other is the Alt key as super quick eyedropper tool.
However, the way he's holding the stylus looks super awkward. I would recommend holding the stylus like a regular pen or pencil. Let it rest naturally and loosely on your middle finger (close to or on the first knuckle) and the crook of your thumb, using the tip of your thumb to hold it it place. You don't need to exert any force to keep it in place. This way, the middle finger is already free to move, and it is super easy to lightly tap the switch whenever needed.
I've been using a tablet for about 15 years, and never had any strain or discomfort.
>>2611337 it could be both, I do practice everyday though
but sometimes whenever I'm thinking of getting some freelance part time at sites like peopleperhour, I get too worked up and worried if I won't make any progress or if it would slow me down... even though there are some people that are worse than me on the top page.
So I sucked it up and made a patreon. I don't know how to write my description or what to promise. I've seen other people talk about needing to pay their rent/bills/food and I definitely don't want to go from that angle. But I am no professional who will be shipping books out to fans every week either. I've also seen people who received a lot of support at first, promising big things, and then not delivering.
>>2609539 small things mainly. Offer to ship your sketchbook when you're done to a raffle of the highest donators. Allow donators to suggest shit. Offer Hi-rez and your work files and work process to those to donate. Start live streaming and then offer shit to your viewers.
