Don't u guys realize that this board is pointless for real art.
Everyone here keeps circlejerking the idea that in order to be good at creating art you just have to know how to draw anatomy. There's no actual artistic discussion here. It's all about how accurately you can match a picture of reality. But there's more to art than that. Am I the only one that thinks this? If you disagree please let me hear u and we can talk.
Is the Pelvis the single most difficult part of the skeleton to draw? I've been tackling it for a while now and I can't seem to be able to simplify it into major forms. I've Frankensteined a few methods for drawing it using 2D shapes like circles and guesses using curved lines. The Sacrum seems to be the only easily simplifiable shape as it's essentially a box in perspective, which I can work with- but the ischium and the ilium are fucking impossible to simplify for me. Not to mention the gender dimorphism that I'd need to learn.

I have two old animatics I can redo (they both desperately need it) but I can't decide on which one I want to do first They're both around the same length and are both similar projects (animation timed to music).
One is an fake anime OP for some of my characters (I ran into audio sync issues when I exported it and couldn't fully fix it) https://youtu.be/e6r2kqbX2yA And the other is a Steven Universe parody https://www.dropbox.com/s/mfexqhkven5oob1/heya%20final.mov?dl=0
They're both very rough and I'd like to at the very least make them more presentable/ cleaner
When you go about practicing from books, how do you do it? Do you just do what the book tells you to or do you copy all the plates? I feel like copying all the plates would kill me but at the same time a lot of books don't have sufficient exercises.
I am still learning digital art and my current laptop is getting a bit unusable. I was thinking of upgrading to a desktop but I don't know if I should stick with 1080p or spring for a 1440p screen. Does the extra resolution help any of you or is it a wasted expense?
Hey /ic/, show your handwriting! How do you practice your handwriting? Which pen are you using?
Pic is my handwriting, I am using a Lamy Safari fountain pen, with a 1.1mm nib and "Rohrer & Klingner - Leipziger Schwarz" ink. I know it's not the best handwriting you've ever seen, but that's why I am creating this thread, to improve it.
>>2730272 Well there are a couple of ways to do so: You could write a little text like I did, look at what looks wrong to you and practice writing these letters. When I practice, I sometimes just do pages of just basic strokes and some letters I often use. My handwriting was far worse before I started. You may also look into copying other people's styles you like and trying to replicate them. Or you could pick a certain font you like and practice writing that.
>>2729993 Okay I made a quick diagram to show how to use a clipping mask.
Basically you use it to paint confined within a shape. I used the example of a tree over a complex background that you want to leave intact. So you can paint the tree shape then paint within it using a clipping mask to keep it contained. Otherwise if I wanted to add shading to the tree or put something like that light line across it, I would need to carefully pay attention to start and stop my strokes before it got to the outside of the tree shape...

>>2729283 There's ressources and all but even that seems somewhat overwhelming for a complete beginner like myself. I just don't know what should I learn first like proportions? anatomy? how to draw a face? It seems unclear to me, I think the sticky is too advanced IMO
Has anyone here been to the FZD School of Design? They talk highly of their one year cram year where they make you grind out the fundamentals like crazy which is what I'm interested in.
What's their course like? What's the curriculum and how is it taught? While it wouldn't be close to their quality, I'd like to try and replicate their course but for self-taught study. I just want a rough idea about what they do and how they teach it.
>>2729017 I don't think a lot of them would really care about sharing what they learnt in school. It's not like some massive secret or something, it's just hard to get the info without knowing someone who went.
>>2729013 >Has anyone here been to the FZD School of Design? There's been a few students who have posted here in the past, and they tend to say both good and bad things about the school. Pros: you will improve a ton and quickly, and get a pretty decent foundation of skills. Cons: if you are not one of the top students you will be ignored, you might burn out, it is expensive.
There's also been some controversies over some of the practices Feng has used and some of his morals/legal... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Assuming someone who was a beginner read the right books/websites and practiced 10-12 hours a day every day, no exceptions, how long would it take them to become competent? By "competent", I mean at least good enough that you could post something here and people would say that it looked decent. Do you think it could plausibly be done in a couple months if someone displayed that level of dedication?
>>2727762 3 years for simple drawings 5 years for full illustrations It really depends on where the person starts from though
With typical shitty male motor skills, it takes about half a year extra just to refine pencil control, and if you're spoiled with typical female eye symbol drawing habits, it will take a few months to undo
In the end, don't stress about how long it is going to take. Just focus on getting good and you'll be there before you realize it. (Also it's a never-ending journey... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I'm a begginer who practices an hour and 20 min a day in 20 min sessions. I rotate between fwp, keys, pme, and drawing with great masters. Is this a good way to do it? Also how am i supposed to use great masters?
>go over to a non-artsy friend's house >he has this fucking painting, full-sized, just sitting on one of the walls >surprised, ask him if he knows anything about art >nah I just really like this one it speaks to me ahahaha
Later on, while talking with him, I found out that the guy had spent $500. $500 dollars for some chinese fucker to paint a reproduction instead of investing it in the artist's own creative work. He hasn't even... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2729877 If it's actually painted (well) then it can be nicer than a print since you have the physical paint texture of it, though I doubt they used the gold leaf that Klimt did so it's an odd choice.
It's his money anyhow, so he can spend it how he likes. I think it's nice that someone is willing to spend $500 on art, even if it is just a Chinese labour camp painting. Most people tend to not value art at all.
Also you don't need to study art or do art yourself to appreciate it. You're... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm gonna sell out because i want money. Normies don't care about skill and they have money. I'd like to attract an audience of normies with similar interests as me, so I can make money without sucking so much dick.
How do I cultivate an audience of noobs and normies who will pay me money? I don't want artists in my audience because you guys are poor just like me. I want people who are dumb enough to pay for art.
This image was uploaded as part of some Jaime pack by someone here. What's this supposed to even show, that Jaime used that particular photo as basis for the painting? How do you know? Its not like that original photo is THAT similar to the final painting. And how on earth would you even be able to find that one certain photo if its all been brushed over and warped and shit before the paintover?
I'm not sure if this the appropriate place to ask but I figured /ic/ would know better than /wsr/.
I'm looking for a set of pictures depicting these red skinned men with black hair, huge gaping smiles and their eyes closed tight. The pictures themselves were often described as unsettling. I'm sorry I couldn't be more descriptive, but I haven't seen these photos in years.
Pic related almost matches the facial expressions of the men in the photos.
>>2729694 Np. Btw there is usually a thread up here for "questions that don't deserve their own thread" if you would ever have another request like this in the future. No hard feelings though, the current question thread is not really properly labelled and not easy to make out for people who do not frequent this board.

How do you even have clients? You are part of some studio that has a website and little web-shop with paintings for sale and some random people just stumble upon preview you have on the website and buy it?
