Can we have a "rate my gallery/portfolio" thread?
Criticism based on:
Does the gallery itself look interesting/captivating? Do you want to see more or click away? What turns you off about it, if anything?
What could be improved in showcasing work?
Could be dA, tumblr, personal website, anything.
I guess I'll start.
I made my dA last year but migrated to tumblr recently, looking back on it now there's a lot of ugly white space. I never really saw that before.
posting mine again, as I cleaned it a bit, but it's still a bit random

I don't know what to art
I find some troubles trying to get the littless succes showing my comic strips, obviously the subject and the drawings were not commercial matters, but people ignore them evn whe the web is full of these kind of stuff, but not well-drawn... how can i get some followers, readers or pople watching them for a few seconds when even 4chan at /b/ blow this stuff out
do any of you have saved improvement of artists that became successful while having a sketchbook? I know conceptart used to have them but jesus, they just erased everything and I really liked going through them when I was feeling down.
do any of you have a link with saved images in folders or something? I would appreciate it
I'm pretty sure by now conceptart.org is used almost exclusively by the uttermost newest of wannabe newbies. and blackspot.
I lol so hard whenever I see the (516 users browsing here) (3712 users browsing) (2 million users browsing the entire forums currently)
Sure thing Jason, sure thing.
Yeah, I'm frustrated with CA for purging everything as well. Haven't been back ever since.
I actually have a few folders on my hd containing (partial) CA SBs of people like wes burt, marko djurdjevic (sp?), janaschi, appleflinger that I saved off here (there was a thread to share art folders), but i don't know if i can be assed to find a place to upload right now.
I'm away from home and most of my materials and I need to order a set of acrylic paints for an upcoming university course. Preferably from the Blick website. Which one is the best/should I get?
cheap shit or student grade, no point in getting the best of the best when skill matters far more than what you paint with...
remember, frazetta did his watercolor work with a mickey mouse paint set.
my latest drawing -_-
Back to the drawing board, Anon. You're not demonstrating the slightest knowledge of the fundamentals; Like people pointed out in your last thread. Your figures are flat and lack volume aside from the other issues.
Your main concern should be learning to draw in 3D space.
Work on "Digital painting 101" Section "2 Traditional Drawing" and "3) Drawing 2" for a few months, about 3 or so. When you're comfortable move to the other sections within Digital painting 101 while you continue working with section 2 and 3.
This isn't a be all end all to drawing, but its a good place to start. When working in the sections its best to look up other resources to further your education on each subject. There is such thing as finishing a section, you will keep doing all of them for the rest of your drawing life. Think of it as a soup you will always be stirring, adding ingredients as you go.
Please take the time or at least show that your considering what people tell you if you're going to make threads this quickly. The link above can be found in the sticky, please make use of it.
Stay determined and focused, Anon.
Thread for the beginners
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 PLEASE RESIZE and crop your images before uploading them. 1kpx is fine.

Back then it took years to finish a painting.
Nowadays I'm worried that one of pieces is taking me more than a week to complete.
What the fuck happened?
Has anyone had any experience with installation art?
How to find spaces?
Do artists usually work with a team?
I dont enjoy drawings/paintings that much because you can only spectate, you cant touch or interact with the artwork.
Installation is so 70s. Installation and performance are the mediums of the current academic institution aka boring and 30 years behind. Gives old people a hard on, seems pretty pointless for the younger generation.
Big installations that require a team is something you do when your an established artist. You need gallery connections to pull it off most times. Most installation artists have started out painting or sculpting then progressed into installation work. Of course you could argue the definition of "installation". You could say that any artwork that take the room in consideration is an installation piece. Yves Kleins (I think??) empty gallery was an installation because the room *didnt* have any artwork in it. I've made some installation work but they've been...

Post your current/recent studies from existing references.
Value/color/figure/composition/line anything goes as long as you post the reference used with the study as well.
never understood the point of copying like this. youre not learning anything besides how to copy that presise style on these precise paintings. if youre interested in actually learning, do a normal still life and try to actually innovate and think through what youre doing
or adapt this style and do your own painting with it. use it as a refernce, but straight out copying these doesnt serve much i think.
i think youre achieveing very little by these.
Hey /ic/ I am getting a tattoo soon but I dont really know what I want to get. Im nkt really scared by the whole "its there forever so make aure you put a lot of thought into it" thing though. I just want a cool drawing on my forearm. I like pic related but I know that I cant really pull it off. If any of you would like to draw something similar lr actaully anything at all Ill consider it. If all goes well ill come back soon an post pics of the final product.
So I've started this new body of work. What do you think any critique/input would be really helpful.
Title of first one "A Train Going East"
"The Confused Academic"
"Stranded On Cripple Creak"
Couldn't find a similar thread, so brushes thread?
Just to make it more interesting, could you elaborate on WHY you like the brushes, and where you got them from?
hah I'm not sure if it's common or not but I use this exact brush set. Short of a few instances I've never needed anything more. Frankly a hard round with dual brush gets the job done every time. Also the cloud brushes in this set are super helpful.
