When it comes to drawing from imagination, how thoroughly visualized is your stuff before you start?
Do you just slap stuff down and see what sticks, or do you have a concrete idea of what you want to do before you even start? What sort of stuff do you think about before you start? How much do you 'wing it'? Do you have any sort of standard prodecure that you work through?
On average, obviously, I'm sure it fluctuates for everyone a little bit.
>>2386987 Think of a story you want to tell about yourself, the world, whatever. Draw a picture that convays that though visual narrative.
I want cover art from my book Name of the wind, it's about a musician boy learning sympathy magic at a university. So I'll draw a picture of him traveling there, lute on his back, wind through his hair, the university in the distance, convay an idea of how this world looks, and feels.
>>2386921 >>2386918 theres a draw thread, and theres a beginner thread. dont make your own thread. You arent good enough to make your own thread, when youre good enough to make your own thread, dont. Dont make your own thread.
Was on there for a couple of months, it's great. Cancelled by sub though, got some art books for christmas to work through and don't want to pay for something I won't be using to it's fullest. But I'll be back.
>>2387309 They've got an official youtube where they have some great life drawing videos (no instruction, just timed poses), and a full 3 hour lesson by Steve Huston on basic head structure. Might be a few more freebies, nothing I recall though.
>>2386865 I believe Sycra once said something about artistic progression. It was along the lines of, sometimes you'll be good, sometimes bad, sometimes REALLY bad, and in my experience, occasionally I'll come back from a break better than before. It's a rollercoaster. But yes, taking a break is goodd, you want to keep your passion hot, stoke its fire, don't let it burn out, etc.
It helps to do little things to stay 'up to speed', though, like contour dawing, shape, observational sketches... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm not sure. Not comparable to lifting I think. If you are burned out though, it can be beneficial but in my experience was that it's mostly beneficial in the sense of refreshing your passion and creativity. It won't magically boost your technical skill level.
living in the boons makes it fairly difficult to get professional teacher.So I figure the best course of action is to do an online course since they offer the help and guidance of someone who's a professional. I want to know if The Drawing Academy is worth the 300$, Is there better online courses, is it a scam, and your positive/negative experiences with any online course.
>>2386892 of course there's more than enough information online but courses offer a better guideline on what a person should be studying and from what i've read they also have teachers you can ask questions when needed and to help you break bad habits you might otherwise overlook without the aide of a teacher. Online courses just seem much better than being self taught and could probably save a person a lot of time. books are also boring as fuck to read.
I have some thin newsprint paper for paste-ups and want to draw/paint the design onto it myself instead of getting it printed.
What would the best medium?
I need to be able to use a full range of colours and it should be easy to do large areas of uniform colour (vector image). Ideally this medium won't fade easily in the elements and won't interfere with the wheatpaste.
>>2386782 Go down to WallyWorld and grab some cheap ass watercolour tubes. Then grab a few more. Pick up a big bottle of india ink while you're at it.
Using a big easel of sorts (8x4ft plywood works well) pin up sheets of newsprint and quickly sketch your design. Now just block fill with a large oil brush (I use a size 12, I'd say up that shit to a 16 or 18) with those watercolour pigments. Give it a bit to dry, India Ink with a trusty round on your linework, let it dry. Pull the monstrosity apart and paste.

Personally, I draw for an "hour" every day no matter what. I tend to stop if I begin to feel like I really don't want to do it anymore so long as I finish at least 1 study. Even if it only takes 40 minutes.
I avoid turning it into a slog especially since I work 10 hour days at my job.
I think that if you push yourself too hard every day you will quit, but if you go just far enough comfortably you will stick to it for years. Whatever you do, you want to avoid turning doing studies into a negative thing.

Greetings, I come from /3/. We are planning to create a beautiful and relativiely complex and massive fantasy or futuristic city through collaboration. We need a good piece of concept art to work on that is detailed so each 3D modeler can pick a piece of it to create for the project.
Is anyone willing to create a concept of a fantasy/futuristic city similar to pic related (but with more detail)? That would make this an awesome cross-board project and probably the first time 4chan ever worked together to do something good!

Okay guys, I'm going fucking nuts here! Help me sort this out.
I'm pretty sure I'm living an example of the mandela effect which is pretty much the theoretical instance of conflicting memories from a parallel universe you previously inhabited before making a somewhat seamless transition to the current one you are inhabiting. It's mostly entertaining but there's some pretty interesting shit that isn't completely explained away by "muh false memories". For example, I distinctly remember Castro, Mandela and Teddy Graham all dying around... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm sure plenty of you are familiar with BonesofRuin, he's a delusional poster that likely has mental issues and is in general a terrible artist that enjoys starting shit and fellating himself. Well, he has a comic called Demon Juice. Make no mistake, this coming is AWFUL in every sense of the word. However, I've seen a comic before with that exact name. There was another guy that posted a bit on /ic/ around 2014 that had that same comic name. He was a little delusional too, but he actually was on the verge of having a little bit of success here and there. I read... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
