i wish i could draw -perfect fabric folds ala da vinci, -a curvacious babe without having to resort to fapping x minutes later -good perspective intuitively -shit that would do well on pixiv -something with good, muted colors (pic related is kind of that i guess) -fuckin good hentai without feeling like i'm a sellout -new ideas and not fall into the same comfort zone shit i always do -and be more be active on spreading across social media.
>>2762768 >perfect fabric folds ala da vinci pic related, all day, every day >something with good, muted colors Velazquez palette. Two colors of dirt, ochre and sienna, and your choice of grey-blue, either ultramarine or lamp-black. It's watercolorists' first color theory exercise coming to you... Comment too long.

>no form everything feels flat >your hatching actually flatted drawing Sorry man but back to grinding wheel. Its better to build on solid rather than shaky fundamentals. Next time post in fred and dont make new for one drawing.
Thats why I finally started pursuing art, because of how shitty life is. Suprised by the amount of people on this board that are so rosey about life or see art as a means of career via doing work for others. I don't get it.

A while ago I figured I'd try doing some homemade clay work but I didn't want to go shell out cash for buying a big ass lump of clay if it turned out I didn't like it, so instead I went out into a field nearby and dug up a few pounds of clay from a stream bed and cleaned it up using info I got online.
I ended up with about 5 pounds of really plastic clay, and after I stored the majority of it in a plastic garbage bag to stay wet I used a small lump to shape a test cup to see how it'd turn out. After shaping all by hand with no wheel, and letting it firm up over a couple days, I trimmed it with a sharp chisel and rubbed it with a spoon to polish the surface a bit. Once it was completely dry I got a good fire going in my fireplace and cooked that thing as hot as I could get it for a few hours, then let it sit in the ashes overnight.
It actually turned out really well, pic related. The surface is smooth and hard and it clinks when I tap it, which apparently means it actually fired. During the firing I added some table salt to the fire because it's supposed to work as a sort of glaze, I don't think it got hot enough to vaporize the salt but I definitely could see bright yellow sodium flames coming out of the hot bed of coals. Since the clay I started with is a sort of greenish grey color, and the finished cup is a dark orange, I'm thinking maybe some sodium vapor bonded to the minerals in the clay or something.
Anyway, after that successful test I went out to that stream again and this time I came back with probably 50 pounds of clay which I've started processing. I also used a good chunk of the clay I already cleaned to make a second pot in the same way as the first, only bigger (pic related again). I'm really enjoying this stuff so I've decided I'm going to get a cheap throwing wheel and maybe some refractory bricks to make a more proper kiln. I'm not going to buy any clay though, since I already... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Here's a detail of the bottom of the second pot I've made. I haven't fired it yet and it isn't fully dried, but I don't see any cracks or anything and the clay sounds good when I tap it. If this one turns out I'm probably going to use it as a plant pot, but the small one I'm going to keep as a knick knack probably forever. Hopefully no one uses it as an ashtray.
That second pot is probably half the size of the biggest one I feel like I could make without a wheel, it was... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
One of the cooler things I've seen on /ic/ lately. Your pots turned out great, nice colour. I'm going to do this now. I have clay in a big hole in my backyard and I'd like some custom plant pots. That bit about possibly selling is alluring too.
Hey /ic/ I'm going to be frank with you guys, I can't color my way out of a paper bag. Like is someone were to put a gun against my head and say, "Color this shit well nigga!" I'd put the gun in my mouth and pull the trigger myself (Cause if I'm going to die its going to be on my terms).
I say all that to say, please help. Unlike anatomy and inking and things, I have no idea where to start when it comes to coloring. So if I could get some pointers, tutorials, anything that can help me out?
Also if there are any other people that have... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

My father originally submitted the quote “You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.”, and attributed to C.S. Lewis. However, once the drawing was done and I began researching the origins of the quote, I came upon an article that went into fine detail explaining that, in fact, C.S. Lewis had never said it, but that... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
"Like much else in our heritage, our conceptions about the role of drawing in the arts comes largely from the Renaissance. During the early years of that period, drawing as we now practice it became established as the foundation of training in the arts. A long-term academic apprenticeship, which called for drawing from nature as well as copying studies executed by master artists, prepared students for their profession. In later centuries this system, with only slight alteration, continued as the accepted means of artistic training. In the 20th century this procedure... Comment too long.

What forms of art are the most permanent. I feel like digital art will all be forgotten when we transition to the next big thing post-internet. What can we use to make a legacy? I've been thinking of learning sculpting or knife making. What do?
>>2762210 >What forms of art are the most permanent Sculpted rock. We literally have examples from tens of thousands of years ago.
>I feel like digital art will all be forgotten when we transition to the next big thing post-internet That's dumb. Digital as a medium will stick around for a long time, though maybe not your specific psd files.

You need to medidate, or better said, stop thinking. Shut any internal monologues going on, and if they pop up do not follow them. Focus and keep going even when you feel like giving up. If you can do this, the bad feelings will go away, try it out.
So i have a shitty HP Deskjet 2050. When scanning pencil artwork with grainy/noisy shading I get these shitty artifacts.
how much do I have to pay for a scanner that doesnt do this?
Also which ones are generally good to pick up the more subtle pencil lines? I work around it by lowering brightness and contrast but that is only post. would be cool if that wouldnt be necessary and I get the sheet as I see it irl
>>2762546 Disable any post-processing effects like sharpening, noise-reduction, etc, scan at your highest bit-depth and optical (not interpolated) resolution available. Usually your drawing will be large enough that the artifacts don't matter, and you should be able to make it look at least decent in photoshop.
What's the best way to learn anatomy? Should you simply draw from reference once you know what muscles insert/attach where?
Is book theory and functionality enough to get ok at it, or are references an absolute necessity? How did you guys learn your anatomy? Did you only read books, or did you draw/construct? Did you read theory and then apply it to plenty of life drawings?
How do you know what you're doing is correct? Is it best to simply guess and then find out more later?
I can't say with certainty that everything in here is right.
I am here, because a couple of anons are complaining about how bad my drawing skills are in /dbg/ threads on /vg/, I have been trying to get better, but my anatomy knowledge hasn't improved one bit. I used to have a working graphic tablet but it stopped working in mid-July for a reason I still haven't figured out. So I've been sticking to draw on paper.
I also have the problem with the chicken scratches because I tend to be nervous while drawing my lines, drawing is supposed to be a relaxing activity. So why is that when I draw, I tend to do chicken scratches?
