basically i need to create a drawing about "the quest for peace" it needs to have foreground middleground nad background, dramatic lighting and foreshortening. as well as figures since its for a figure drawing class.
any ideas? i thought maybe doing historically signifigant peace brokering moments like breaking the berlin wall, tenamin square ect but that seems a little cheap
I've decided to bite the bullet and finally come to /ic/ after five years of doing commissions after one of my clients wasn't pleased with a result.
I'm a pretty good artist in my opinion but maybe there are a few minute details to my work that I could focus on adjusting. I was hoping /ic/ could give me some pointers that I didn't already hear in art school. What do you guys think?
>>2272974 First of all, it's customary to post in the Draw Thread or Beginner Thread for critiques rather than creating your own thread. Secondly this is awful on every level, I don't even know where to start. Fuck... Just...post in the beginner thread and maybe someone there can give you a starting point.
I'm not blind, I know when something looks stylized or realistic, but when does my art start going into that stylized area? Is it thick outlines? Odd proportions? Shading? I want my stuff to look real, but I like giving my art some odd theme or feature that makes it stand out.
Pic is more of sketches that stuff I take time with, but still gives an idea of what I mean. They are more stylized, but I want to try and move to more realistic stuff.
Anyone here get urges to draw certain things but don't to avoid embarrassment?
For example, I really want to draw neopets like pic related. I get mad nostalgia. But I'm a guy and that would come across as incredibly gay. Literally only faghag girls draw neopets. So, I just don't draw them.
Other things are I guess furries, certain fandoms like mlp, steven universe, etc.
I'm not making progress in my art because I feel like drawing but the topic is degenerate and I don't want people to know. Anyone else got these feels?
>>2272773 >>2272774 I just realized that I find a lot of stuff that looks kind of "fun" degenerate. Like OCs, AUs, etc. It's also almost at the point where I'm scarcely uploading anything because I'm drawing stuff I don't want other people to see. I won't lie, being an artist kind of embarrasses me. But I can't help liking what I like.

This thread is meant for artists who might want to try to make stylized work in-between their studies. It is strongly recommended that you use this thread in conjunction with learning the elements and fundamentals of art. You can also discuss the visual elements of various professional artists as well if you keep it relatively articulate and civil.
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.

Right now I'm: >doing gestures >doing the Vilppus manual >trying to understand perspective a bit When should I jump into shading, realistic life drawings and so on? Any pointers as to how long should I spend drawing gestures before going to try and draw a bit realistically?
Does anyone know what kind of process Chase Stone uses to create his images? I know there are two tutorials by him out there but they're pretty old and I'm sure he's much more dependent on references nowadays.
Like I needed any more proof that this industry and digital art in general are absolutely fucked. It's just too easy.
'Making it' equals a 25k salary. All of us who pursue this seriously signed up for a life of bitterness, stress and poverty.
Tough luck. All I feel is anger towards the people that encouraged me and talked bullshit about how great their lifes are and how it all paid off... it was nothing but vanity. The vain need to feel successful infront of someone else, rather than tell them the truth about the horrible path they are heading down.

Being an artist is more about being a salesman and knowing marketing and 40% art. When you fully understand this let me know so I can tell you politely to stop spreading your beliefs that you can't make money. Only losers who can't make a sale have this mindset.
>>2272105 OP this is slightly fun to read, but why are you not focusing on drawing? there's this one girl with giant tits and a very low neckline. she was sitting opposite of me and started to get on the floor and draw on her knees. she was 'working' very energetic, so her breasts started swinging around and one escaped her bra. needless to say that this was very distracting and I got angry at myself. so from this day on I've added another wank to my day just before a figure drawing session. which is...

Post your current drawing here and give constructive critique to others!
Please make sure your posted image is clear, downsized to around 1000 pixels wide, rotated to the correct orientation, and that any unused space is cropped. If you want critique on a drawing from the previous thread, you can delete it there and repost in this one.
