Is drawing better learned in an art school/college or at home? If you want to pursue it as a career of course, perhaps digital design even. >I'm in high school and wondering what I should do with my money and time
I seem to think that as well. Unless it's a STEM degree, no need for college. The reason why I'm wondering is because I notice more art school grads in the community than self-taught artists, and I'm in doubts on whether that has an effect on your skill or not.
I hate how shitposters think they have the same rights to this board that artists do when all today's shitposters do is make whine threads and engage in internet gossip because their art sucks shit and they are never going to make it.
>>2744729 Well my friend, graphic design has not a lot to do with art. Design in general doesn't have a lot to do with art and designers get payed to think and sell from an industrial point of view. I doubt you have the skills to both of those.
Don't be a jackass. Appreciate instead of destroying because you sound like some thirdworlder
Can someone explain to me how does shading of materials work and the process when you paint? What is the difference between matt and metal when shading? Transitions form light to dark? Also how would you go by shading pic related? Not my pic btw
Materials reflect and refract differently as a function of how pocketed or not their surface structure is, as well as their translucency / transparency.
Materials have diffuse and specular properties, which affect the position of highlights and shadow as a result of the above physical properties of matter.
A contextual understanding of this as an artist comes from studying various forms of various materials under various lighting conditions. Key word variety. From that the rules for describing a kind of material become known and that rendered material readable.
>>2744144 I'm a recruiter for Blizzard just passing by. My name is Nick Callialo and I'd just like to say that your concept design skills is exactly what we're looking for here at our studio. If possible I would like to get in contact with you to discuss employment opportunities. If interested please leave an email and I'll get in touch with you as soon as I can.
hey /ic/, I wanted to print some vinyl stickers for a friend's event and am trying to be cost-effective (we're broke.) Is it worth it to spring for vinyl sticker paper? Or can I get away with just putting an enamel or krylon finish on A4 cheap sticker papers? I'm also interested in making lighter wraps and was wondering if either of these were a viable method for that.
This has little to do with this board, but I've worked on a print shop and I can say that, at least where I live, sticker paper will only cost you cheaper when printed in larger quantities (thousands). I'd stick to the vinyl, no pun intended.
Not a beginner but I stopped for 4 years or so, depression, disillusion, so forth and so on. I tried today to get back on the track with a study. But I came up with this (see picture), what should I work on? 15 mins sketch circa.
I use Sai and have gotten prints made, but now I want to make posters, and Sai as far as I know is only RGB. What are my options and if you're experienced with this: is it better to convert? Are there other options for CMYK software? I need some knowledge.
>>2743788 you can if you take the classical route. classical paintings are fine.
If you're doing digital paintings of kids, it wont be classy, no matter how good you are. You'll be seen as some freak, and the people who do enjoy what you draw, will probably enjoy it for the wrong reasons (im assuming you want to make innocent paintings)
On the other hand, if you wanted to "slum it" lots of porn artists can get away with drawing many taboo subjects as long as they keep a low profile, and avoid... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I thought about asking /adv/ this, but I figured you guys might know better... Why is it whenever I want to draw, or even vaguely think about drawing, I get extremely tired? I'm so tired of it. I have so many ideas and feel so motivated at times but every time I want to I just get unbelievably tired.
How do you beat something like this, /ic/? I just want to draw again.
>>2743751 You just have negative associations with art. Maybe you forced yourself in the past to draw when you didn't want to or to draw things you didn't like, so your brain sees it as a chore. Or maybe you are too result oriented and beat yourself up when the images you make don't live up to your standards.
You need to find a way to step back from all that and remember why you like art and drawing in the first place, and then focus on enjoying the moment while drawing something you enjoy without worrying... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Not to be the armchair psychologist here but from an objective face-value it sounds like your brain is trying to keep you from drawing. Is drawing something you really want to do? Are you more invested into the end result or the process of drawing? For beginners, the process is what is fairly daunting. If anything, just take some uppers and push through it.
I suppose I do feel very invested in what the end result would be, because I see that in my head and it's what I want to draw. But even before grabbing a pencil and paper, that's when my brain goes into shut down mode with wanting to sleep.
Sometimes I do try to just push through it and keep myself going because I know nothing will come of it if I don't at least try--but even then about half way through I'll get even more tired... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
How important is the skill of freehand straight-line drawing? I mean, I can draw straight lines but not without the help of any straightedges. If rulers are always available, is freehanding really THAT important?
It's important in terms of being able to make a quick confident straight when you want to without having to pull out a ruler. Same as being able to draw a circle without a tool.
Think of it like being able to figure out what you're going to tip after a meal without needing to break out your calculator. It's convenient even if the calculator can do the job. It's just convent, and it's good for your workflow to not have to interrupt it.
What do you do when you feel like something doesn't click? I love art. I love viewing it, seeing the process, the people behind it, etc. But when I draw I don't feel any joy at all, just the knowledge that I'm missing something, but don't know what. It's awful to think that there's something preventing you from meeting your full potential. How do I work to find out what it is? Is it even possible?
Some people are going to say "If you don't enjoy the process you're never going to make it" and they're right to an extent. My belief, however, is that being a beginner is very rarely fun anyway. If you're self aware of how shit you are, it's going to suck for a while. For months, maybe years.
The question is, do you find satisfaction in self improvement? Do you enjoy striving towards a goal, even if the day-to-day can be unpleasant? If so, you can probably reach a point where you start to appreciate the craft and enjoy doing art. It took me a while before the process itself became enjoyable to me, once I was comfortable with the process. My answer to the people who always say "if you don't love every minute of art don't even bother!"and act like they're always having a mindshattering orgasm whenever they draw have their heads up their asses.
Getting good at art is part passion, part discipline. You need the discipline when the passion fails, and it will fail sometimes, guaranteed. If you feel like you're missing something, you're already a step ahead of the legion of retards drawing terrible art and thinking they're hot shit.
Sometimes you find a threshold, a limit, you can't exceed easily, even with some good literature. You should definetly find a coach or go to a class and have someone who can "help" abit. It helped me alot back then, when I go depressed because I couldn't understand color and it always felt wrong. With a small amount of coaching it just clicked and I felt alot better about myself and I progressed alot faster. The only hard part is developing your own style, when you have... Comment too long.

Sup /ic/ in my digital art course I was assigned to choose any digital artist that works in a way that I never knew was possible beforehand and discuss why it is worth discussing about. But problem is I can't come up with anything so that's where you guys come in. Thankfully I don't know jack shit about digital art beyond basics so I think anyone will work as long as they are someone that expands solely on the idea of digital art. Nothing that is simply art done on digital stuff that can only be done digitally. All the help is appreciated. pic unrelated.
>>2743534 Andrew "Android" Jones has done some weird ass digital shit, using strange vectors and fractals and things. At one point he rigged up some script that converted sound waves into abstract shapes and so would play the guitar to create abstractions that he would make images out of.
Otherwise probably some shit people do in 3d programs is pretty mindblowing and there are some really interesting solutions that use algorithms. I think some of the designs on the aliens from Edge of Tomorrow used some crazy... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Scott Robertson, generally design area. It's more maybe what is "behind the art", but look at 53:00 about the texture bombing (also 33:00 about making character designs out of onion)
See pic related. A guy produces fuckton of those and just switches sliders and shits design after design without him even being there. Part about shoes is also quite awesome: he makes 900 unique designs of shoes in short amount of time, all that could be shoes some day.

This guy literally draws two dots for eyes an L shape for a nose, and an upside down orange for a mouth, and he gets away with it.. WTF??!!? I'm just so pissed because there are other artists that spend a shit ton of time putting in so much more detail, and they don't get noticed, but Why this guy. JUST WHY?
>>2743353 >>2743354 Just realised that it didn't mean a thing. More simply : If you are shit at drawing/painting in a specific style (say renaissance for example), is it possible to REALY git gut at it ?
How are you dealing with the feeling that you have to learn to draw for a few years to make the stuff you want? I want to draw interesting, well rendered characters, but I cant do that with my basic knowledge at the moment. Doing only studies takes the whole fun from me, it becomes a "must do" thing.
