Wut are your thoughts
Title is fear
Nah bro you see it's all about being raised in the cultural context of the internet, a highly personalized yet land separated culture! Aw dude don't tell my mom about my work, weak brah weak.
Fucking nerds, go outside with your easel.
What does /ic/ think of him and why is he one of the most important artists of the 20th century?
What is a good tablet upgrade from cheapo Chinese knockoff Huion?
Is intuos 3 better or about the same?
>getting this memed by brands
The Huion is fine, what you get for the extra you're paying for Wacom it's nowhere near worth it. Wacom is literally the Apple of tablets at this point.
Sup /ic/. Gonna dump some paintings, starting with my most recent works. Let me know what you think.
is there any more?
those two are pretty dead. working from photographs and imagination sucks all the life out of painting. You aren't painting light like you should be. The images are piercing straight through the layers of light that would naturally be in front of what you are viewing. Gives everything a really dead look. Look at the impressionists and post-impressionists to get a better idea of what I mean.
Looking to get/make something for my dad, who is a painter and a sculptor. Ideas?
I'm not good at sculpting anyway, and my painting skills are nonexistent (something I've been wanting to learn, though) so that is more or less out of the question.
Something related to art would be good, though.
How did Akira Toriyama manage to draw such detailed, stylized machines while still maintaining clean lines?
Is there a technique here that im missing other than using basic references and rendering them in his own style? It sounds much easier said than done.
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.
Do not forget to resize and crop your images before uploading them. 1kpx is fine.

Study this, faggots.
Step 1: take paleoart
Step 2: add lasers
Step 3: repeat steps 1 through 2
How can someone with no knowledge of mechanics whatsoever avoid making awards mistakes while drawing machines from imagination?
Also, references on the subject would be appreciated.
All you need to study is joints. I'm serious. That makes or breaks the believability of mech designs. Assuming you are at a level where balancing the weight is not an issue for you anymore. Because if you draw a T-rex mech with a gigantic cockpit popping out forward, but no counterweight it will look so awfully wrong.
just got paid 1000$ to paint a mural ama
I've made over 20,000$ in art so far
Best (cheap) program to use for drawing tablet?
>Work in construction
>Can barely stand after doing my job
>Can't even imagine putting in 4 hours to practice art
Will I get better if I do 1 hour a day of practice /ic/?
Is it really essential to do 4 hours a day of practice?
I'm just a hobbyist and I want to get at a level where I can draw furry porn for $.
It's not essential.
You'll improve with 1 hour a day, just don't expect massive improvement.
Just study smart. Don't draw random shit doodles, make the most of your hour learning fundamental stuff. Do a little more on the weekend.
What I'd do in your place is do my research on the weekends - what I want to work on the for the week, read the books I need to read, watch some videos, find some refs, whatever. Draw a bit too. Then on weekdays, apply what you researched for an hour a day. Review and find what you need to work on each weekend.
So /ic/ I'm bad at sculpting, but I want to improve. Here is my first attempt at sculpting a human head, no reference used.
I will use reference in the future - I did this in order to find out where I tend to make mistakes and where my understanding of the human face is lacking (everywhere unfortunately, duh.)
I was hoping to get some help from anyone gentle enough. Redlines, general advice, anything really.
I chose this board instead of /3/ because this is about art fundamentals.
Also - yes I ignored the skull, the ears and the forehead, but...

Basically what I would like to know is what went especially wrong and what can I do about it, because I can't tell (If I could I would just make it better, but this is my current limit)
so I can pay special attention to those areas when studying and practicing
Hey, I'm a professional sculptor and it's great to see some fellow sculptors on /ic/.
I find the best way to approach sculpting is to think about every feature in terms of planes and shapes. I highly highly recommend you get Philippe Farauts instructional books series on sculpting. They are expensive but very much worth every penny.
He explains sculpting the portrait starting from the very basics up to advanced form and also points out common errors new sculptors make.
Practice makes perfect so keep at it.
