What does /ic/ think of Plague of gripes?
He's cool and I love a lot of his work and videos, but he recently did a video about his ethos when it comes to learning to be an artist, and I pretty much disagreed with everything he said.
He basically said practice was pointless and all you should do is constantly try new styles instead of practicing. I remain unvonvinced...
He seems like an alright guy, but I don't like his art much. His colours, his rendering, his lines, his style in general, it's all just not very appealing. I think he's just a hobbyist, though, and a good amount of people seem to like his work, so I don't think it matters much. The stories or comics he does seem nice.
I'm watching this right now, and it's kinda... weird. I don't really like the things he's saying. It all sounds really naive, I think. Nice voice, though.
Is animation the best way to understand form?
"Yeah pretty much - I have a projector pc, so to trace the outlines I've been putting the paper on the wall and project an image onto it."
So... I was drawing for 2-3 years now... And, recently I tried getting into digital art. I got my cousin's old tablet... And it turned out to be shit (SilverCrest) now I am searching for a new tablet... Sooo,.. Since I am a guy that doesn;t have a lot of money, I need something that I can afford. So, /ic/, do you have any recommendations for tablets that are cheap and somewhat good? :V
It depends on your skill level of course.
You don't nessecarily have to go for a Wacom.
I have a Medion tablet that has about the size of A4 and it works well for me.
Huion doesn't seem too bad.
What does u think errrrr
werent you in the self promotion thread a second ago
Truly amazing. No one fetus should have all that talent.
-_- i seek to obtain actual "feedback" - not merely inflate the ego of "thread dynamics" ... if you truly believe in this "master thread" sort of concept, perhaps you should take it up with 4chans webmaster and get him to implement it as a rule.
until then i will make use of the functionality that allows my art to recieve the most feedback as possible: aka: having it be in its own thread -_-
it makes no sense to obstrusfucate the location of my art by burrowing it into an...

I'm looking for advice about watercolor. This is my second time using it and I really like it, but I also really like ink. Watercolor paper tends to reject ink and sketch book paper wrinkles with watercolor. Any other things I should try? Also all feedback and/or asshole tearing is welcome.
Looking nice so far, anon.
What watercolor paper do you use?
I often combine watercolour and ink and haven't had problems with it so far.
I know there to be paper for japanese ink painting (sumi-e) wich is supposed to be very absorbent.
>sketch book paper wrinkles with watercolor.
You need to stretch your paper before you use it for watercolour, or it will buckle. Googling "stretching watercolour paper" will give you heaps of different ways to do this.
Other than that, its looking pretty cool.
>tfw all you do is study photographs
>want to start a dA/tumblr but don't know what to draw
>tfw dont have any ideas
>think of something cool, then get bored of it
How do I come up with stuff that i can stick with to the end?
Not really where to post this but I consider what I do a type of art. I do concrete overlays and my company is looking for all sorts of cool designs and patterns. Post some neat floor designs and I'll post some of the work I've already done to give you an idea of what I mean.
