I have a surface and I've never found it all that useful for art. In situations where I want to draw in places that aren't my PC I almost never want to do elaborate digital paintings so it's easier to just carry around pencils and a pad.
It's a lovely device but I've never found an artistic use for portable tablets.
Anyone here draw using tablets or touch displays? I've had a Wacom Cintiq 13HD for a few years now and it works great. I recently upgraded my computer to Windows 10 and now it barely works at all. Even after updating the driver and reinstalling the software, my computer isn't able to pick up both my main screen and the Cintiq at the same time and I'm having a slew of resolution issues with my main screen being scrunched if it's plugged in.
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.
Here's the deal. I want to get better at drawing. Up until recently I've had no interest in drastically improving my art because I don't really draw all that much. I take really long breaks and I'm generally lazy. I want to get better at drawing because lately I've been feeling more creative and would like to express myself better through my drawings, something that is just not possible at my current level. Now, some of you may know me, most of you probably don't so here's the thing: I... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2236596 hmm are you the same anon who keeps trying to "recruit" me for /pol/? ^^ ;; Sorry, I just don't have time to learn the ways of a new board, 4chan can be too much of a distraction and my time is limited : (
I don't think the shape of the character from the drawing here is translated very well to the pixel you've done of her. There's a lot more upper body to the pixel, unless she's got a fucking ginormous rack then it's definitely a little off. You have any other pixel work to share?
>>2225714 It was designed for young adults that were more mature during the time that it aired. Now a days it's more about appealing to teenager's and a generation of people that never want to grow up.that's why all the grit was taken out of it, for maximum escapism.
This is part of a little project i've been working on since february, i would love to make this into a webcomic someday, the protagonists are a 20 years old cat girl nicknamed "gata" and her 35 years old brother, an obese and lazy but yet strong nicknamed "fatso", the story takes place in russia 200 years in the future, cold places like Russia and Alaska are the only places where humanity ( Or in this case "catanity", sorry...) can live, due to global warming. Most of the world is extremely hot and animal species are going extinct at a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
gata and fatso are know as scavengers, people who wears mask and steals items from buildings and corpses, and in extreme cases murder people, scavengers usually wears white masks with custom patterns and rain coats.
What do you think of the ideas?, i would like some honest opinions, what do you like, what do you think that's wrong, i want this to be a good story.
Also sorry for my bad english, it could be better, i know.
>>2139781 Tombow Mono pencils are pretty highly regarded by a lot of pros.
I prefer a 2mm lead holder because it's easier to get a fine point and more comfortable to hold. Good 2mm leads are about $1 each most places, although jetpens has Uni Mitsubishi leads at half that price that I've yet to try but are supposed to be about the same as their wooden pencils (which are great).
Pic related is what's on my desk. I've got a lot more than that, and honestly I use the Pentel P209 with 2B lead and the Staedtler Mars Technico with HB lead more than everything else.
Remember, no matter what kind of advice you're given, if you feel lost or overwhelmed - just draw. Draw whatever, draw something new, draw something you want, just don't draw something you're used to drawing before. Drawing enough will show you your own weakspots - if you're passionate enough to improve, you'll know where to start. Improvement is a steep slope, though - once you find out you're weak in something like the arm and start practicing it, you'll start falling further and further back until... Comment too long.

Also OP what I did when I was a beginner was I did a series of "tests" to gauge where I was at and what I needed. Out of all my beginner experiences Id say the biggest hurdle and thing that made things better for me was understanding perspective and drawing objects in 3d.
When I started understanding that, I could construct better without things and body parts floating all... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
