I'm going to try kraft paper for big scale (I'm a cheap cunt) and see how it goes, so far it seems you to prime it or it breaks too easily due to humidity (using floor paint), also have to be careful with the wind and surfaces, but it's for street art so I'm not disappointed

Questions... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Alright, maybe someone can shed some light on this shit for me. Recently wandered out of the arts section and ended up by a bunch of texts on nuclear physics, organic chemistry and Munsells colour reference guide, The Big Book Of Colour.
I've recently started using the Munsell system for referring to colours, and mixing my pigments and am blown away by how easy this shit is to use for design. For those who don't know, here are a few examples 5R 3/4, 5Y 9/20, 10PB 2/26, N3.
The formula is (Hue slice) (Value)/(Chroma). Where this system differentiates from... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
/Ic/ I have to ask. Is copying someone else's image or work a legitimate way of improving or getting better? I've been doing it on and off for the past year or so, but I always feel like Im just cheating and not actually doing anything to improve. When I do make something without a reference it usually turns out just as good as the copied ones but I honestly cant tell.
And no I dont like print the image and just trace over it, I do it by eye if it matters in any way. So thats another factor that may play into it. Pic unrelated.
Whats the point of getting gud if nobody knows who you are? Pic related is an AMAZING illustration but nobody know who's the artist. I've already reverse image search it and nothing came up, you guys are wrong, marketing > loomis
Did someone have a art exsercises training schedule/program to share?... let me explain... I have serius procrastination problems but I have noted that if I have a schedule to follow i can push myself a little more. the fact is that due to my procrastination proble it seems i'm unable to compile one myself... so can someone share one or have some advice to help me? also anti-procrastination general
What are some amazing books out there on how to draw animals? Something like Hampton's "Figure Drawing: Design and Invention", but for animals. I know Vilppu has one, which is great. But any more great sources?
>>2364883 things like the OP pic are only useful if you understand how muscles move in 3d space. if you're able to understand the origin and insertion points of muscles and how they look 3 dimensionally i'd say you're better off using photo references. there's a lifelike quality you would get in photos (and even more in actual models) that you don't get in a 3d posed model. films are also a good way of practicing posing and so are animation model sheets
Hello anons, here is a little piambura exercise im doing currently, it's not finished yet, I just want to share since I'm really liking how its turning out, considering this is my first exercise of this kind, but of course I'm open to critics, of course I'll post more when I put more work onto it, in the meanwhile here it is
P.S. there are little proportion errors in left side of the face, so, aside from that please make sure to notice any errors/observations in it
>>2365185 OP here, thanks! first you gotta "kill" the whites in the cloth you're gonna use, for that use a mix of burnt umber and solvent for oil paintings, once you got a good mix between the two you use it and spread it on your canvas until all the white in it disappears, when you do this, you clean the excess with a clean rag, then you gotta make it dry
Next step is making the structure, u gotta use a mix of burnt umber, black and solvent again (try not to use a lot of solvent so it doesnt kill the burnt... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2364772 Do lots of still life studies, go to a thrift store and get those vintage metal cutlery and crockery stuff with lots of patterns, really get an understanding of how light reflects and casts a shadow on the metal (for this particular subject) Your stuff is okay, with some refining you'd be getting close to blizzard-tier (which shouldn't be your goal.) but I'm not seeing reflective light.
If you're looking for a book Scott Robertson's How to Render: the fundamentals of light, shadow... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
