How does one draw cute/expressive looking eyes for faces? I get the felling I'm missing something when it comes to making eyes looks right and look attractive as well.
Can you help me?
I just lost the stylus of my wacom intuos draw (pic related). What other stylus are compatible with this tablet? And how musch is the cheapest one?
Hey guys, relatively new artist here. What's a good place to upload your work? The only places that I'm aware of are deviantart, tumblr and instagram. Where do you guys get the most exposure? pic not related. Thanks /ic/
It depends what kind of work you do somewhat. Artstation is popular for digital fantasy and science fiction for example.
Most artists post on facebook actually. If you are part of various art groups there you can get some exposure, and you can either post art on your own personal wall or make an art page for yourself.
If you are a beginner though worry more about getting good before worrying about getting people to see you work.
what does /ic/ think of my tattoo?
I designed it myself.
Hey guys! As you can plainly see, I couldn't draw a circle if my life depended on it, so I'm turning to you guys to help me make sure the last two grueling months of coding weren't a complete waste of my time.
This is a card game (that's played on a gameboard... on a phone... yeah), so I'm shooting for a couple hundred pieces for the initial release. But I don't need backgrounds, shading or color, just outlines.
Here's the deal: I don't have a huge budget (US$500), so I can only offer a couple bucks for each piece that I...

To get quality work youd have to dish out 30$ a card minimum (assuming you scam someone into it). That's less than 14 cards. At least propose a % on game revenue. And no, it's not a couple minutes. It'll take the person minimum 2 hours per cards if done correctly.
For just outlines? I wouldn't think that would take hours, but obviously this isn't my field of expertise.
I don't know if I could offer a percentage, but if the game ends up being successful, I'd be happy to kick down some extra bonus cash to make it more worth contributers' time.
Sorry for this crap again but i have to ask something:
I own an Intuos Pen small tablel and I have the option to buy a Cintiq 12wx rather cheap, and considering that where i live no shop sells any of the graphic tablets and online shops don't ship here:
Is it worth it? I've read that color saturation is off and the stand is bad.. Does any of you anons use it? Can you work around this?
>Is it worth it?
Fuck no. It's outdated and when it was released back in its day it was still shit. You'll be fighting to keep all your panels on screen and you'll have limited space. It's even smaller than a regular sketchpad. Your colors will be way off that you'd have to swap monitors to do color. And the the amount of cables you have to lunge around.
Just save up for the 13HD or wait for the newer cintiqs to come out which shouldn't be too long from now.
I own a 12wx and it's trash, my family man. I don't use it anymore and I refuse to make it another artist's problem (but I also can't bring myself to just throw it away with how much it cost). If you're going to get a Cintiq, go big or go home. That said, it'd be more practical and quite a bit cheaper to get the Huion Giano or Intuos Large and invest in a second monitor (for references/tool dockers etc.) than any given Cintiq, really.
This is my gallery. Want a tour?
this one's about a sneaky lizard like species that eats people shit
Is there any way to do art commissions anonymously?
I know paypal shows all your info when somebody goes to pay you.
I have shaking hands and my hands start cramping a minute into writing.
Is it worth giving this a try?
Who was the original artist behind this painting? This is probably not even the original piece.
How do you keep your momentum when learning? I feel tired after almost 3 weeks of going through basic shit. Doing that for years? How? Drawing may be fun but learning certainly isnt.
You don't learn for years, you earn mastery through years of implementation but you learn a concept in a few weeks.
Stop studying just to study you should only ever study to fix an error in a piece or to improve a piece.
Wich color is this ?
the exact blue tone
I noticed this weird thing. Whenever i start the day with drawing or writing it all gets done with a minimal amount of discipline. but the moment i play an exiting pvp game or watch an exiting movie it ruins the rest of the day.
the blast of stimulation seems to make it extremly hard to get back to the ease from before. the white paper suddenly seems so much harder to fill.
is anybody else like this?
That's a good observation. I don't think it's over stimulation so much as there being no threshold. Your brain is fresh and it'll yield results as such.
Now whether that is good or bad for certain tasks and situations is different.
How do I learn to draw this style of artwork / what is this style called? Any tutorials on it guys?
woodcuts. a form of relief printing. pine is an inexpensive wood that's soft and easy to carve. you could also use other materials, like linoleum. you could also try scratchboard.
Foeget about it OP, you simply don't have enough imagination and creativity. You will never make anything interesting and your art will be exactly like the other guy, but a bit less refined.
Just wanna let you all know that Clip Studio Paint/ Manga Studio is on sale. It'll be on sale for the next three days.
Get em while you can d/ic/ks!
Damn, 50 is already a pretty good deal. I might consider picking it up because Krita is too bloated for my work laptop and photoshop's animation tools are abysmal. Does it work with Huion tablets?
What is this type of drawing called? Pic related.
Do any of you draw like this? If you want to make some bucks, let me know. I've been searching for 2 days straight can't find anyone.
What's his end game?

This thread is meant for artists who might want to try to make anime works 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.

wanted to get something like pic related as a present for someone but not sure whats good or not? any suggestions would be helpful
a little sketch I did yesterday. inspired by the silence of the lambs and Bailey illustrations.
very nice. I personally enjoy it's slightly sketchy style but on the whole, neatness.
On that note, I did notice the wings are not symmetrical in size, share, nor pattern sizes nor neatness. It's noticeable that you're not as confident with drawing from the left side into the right, as you are the other way round. (talking in particular about the shading on the left upper wing)
Still pretty cool tho.
So I want to get into digital painting more than drawing. I kinda know the procedure (I've painted a bit on oil, but very basic stuff) yet I don't seem to get the hang don painting and rendering in photoshop. Any advice/books/tutorials?
Also, digital painting general
Pic related: I want to work in the same way LD Austin or Gimaldinov work with Photoshop.
digital painting is all about cheating. if you can cheat and convince people it was painted. you've mastered DP.
>stay away form the filters
>find yourself a good dry texture brush
>hey anon, can I look through your sketchbook?
I CAN'T DRAW
WHY CAN'T I DRAW
ART IS SO HARD
OH MY GOD
How the fuck do I shake this feeling of thinking that I won't be able to learn something? I practice besides that feeling every day for hours but this shit is starting to eat me alive. Today I masturbated and I needed to stop because it was so sad to see all those shit tier porn artists being better than me, that they grasped things I haven't grasped yet.
I'm not hyperventilating, it's more like a lingering feeling that is always aroudn me. Even when I get something and feel happy and confident I immediately feel shame because I thought like that.
I want to get into maker rendering for product design. They look like a great expressive and fast medium when used properly, and that Industrial Design look is sexy as fuck.
I always rendered my sketches digitally and don't know how to begin to work traditionally.
Any help with this? Any good resources you know about this type of work?

Sketching: the Basics is literally Industrial Design bible.
Here's the link for two books from this amazing series I happen to have on cloud:
Read them if you haven't yet, you won't regret it. They cover everything, from markers and basic shading with some perspective techniques to industrial design philosophy
Thoughts on this? Basically they take a 3d model and then scan a 2d drawing in any medium and try to get the 3d model to look like it was done in that medium. Do you think it'll have any serious affects on the industry down the line?
Adobe won't mind spending time and resources on developing this gimmicky bullshit but they can't be bothered to even implement something so simple yet fundamental as brush organization in Photoshop that users have been asking for now more than a decade.
Fuck you Adobe. You can suck my dick.
What are the best and most extensive resources/websites/books you have for building visual library of clothing folds.
And I'm talking about things beyond just the 7 basic folds
Perhaps something like the resources for nude poses we have, but with clothes.
Any help will be appreciated
is this any good? i want to start drawing manga and been wondering where should i start
I'd like to have a serious discussion about adult/porn art and how it affects the artist and his relationship with society and other individuals.
tl;dr discussion points

nah, in this day and age, you can't do anything without it being a political agenda, just do the porn art you want just observe the fundamentals and not do bullshit like this
Drawing ero is a risk no matter how you do it if you're concerned about your reputation among normalfags.
Why would porn be such a profitable business if this weren't the case...
-Paetron is still the best way.
-Make a blogspot or tumblr linked to a dummy gmail. A custom website is overkill
-If you're involved with the community/release consistently on Hentai-Foundry or any of the other adult forums then you'll probably get connections with other users.
-If you're concerned about how others see you/judge you, making porn's not for you.
I found out my uncle is planning on getting me an Ipad pro, I was planning on saving up and buying a drawing tablet like a nice intous. Never done digital art. It'd be a waste to have both. Will this make it more difficult to get into digital drawing? What programs do you need? I need the apple pen ,right?
tl;dr Am getting an Ipad pro, advice on getting into digital art with it.
PS is Available, so is Autodesk Sketchbook (My Favorite, it's free) and get an Apple Pen, it's pretty good. (I used to work at an apple store, it was as cool as they made it out to be)
