How do I acquire the drawing style of another artist I like? Pic related. If you read Gantz then you know this is by Hiroya Oku. He's really in the middle of drawing people inbetween anime and realism. I want that. How do I acquire the style of another artist?
He actually makes models (I think from clay but I'm not sure) of the characters and rotoscopes them, which is why they have that realistic look to them. I don't know how much he draws on it's own, but there's more to his style than just drawing well.
Well this seems like the best board for this. I just got my first tattoo four days ago. And it's already almost completly peeled. I've been putting the cream on twice a day, applying minimal amounts, cold water showers, no itching it, basically following all the basics. Is it normal that this fast I'm already almost fully peeled? The pictures are in order from the day after I got it till now, a time frame of three days, minus the one between when I got it and the pic.
In my endless autism I've made a little program that allows you to compare how well you are doing to other artists. You input the date your profiles were created (on say DA, FA, Tumblr, etc), then you input your likes, followers, pageviews, etc, and those of whom you are comparing to. The little script then lets you know how you measure up, relative to the time your account has been existing.
So for instance if you have X views, Y faves, Z watchers and your account was made early 2014, but Sachimikan has 32X views, 12Y... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Impossible to measure You have a whole fucking lot of variables that will affect your popularity function, and they will interact with one another in unpredictable ways on top of that
How do you define popularity anyway? Number of page views? Number of commissions? Number of autistically overpaid commissions?
A page of a scat porn artist won't have many views, but that doesn't mean he's not making a fucking killing with commissions. Not to mention nobody is gonna "like" his artworks in social networks, etc.
I really enjoy peterdraws' stuff, and am doing similar pieces of art right now. At the same time though I feel like my time/energy is wasted. How do I overcome this? Does anybody here do something similar?
This thread is meant for artists who might want to try to make anime works in-between their studies. It is strongly recommended that you use this thread in conjunction with learning the elements and fundamentals of art. You can also discuss the visual elements of various professional artists as well if you keep it relatively articulate and civil.

Hey /ic/ im kinda losing my mind over here I really love liquids of any kind but its impossible for me to draw them??? (like here on this Maxmoefoe r34 fanart) Can somebody give tips or help? Thanks in advance <3
Good concept/design, but a bit boring execution for me. It's IMO a case of small things piling up: ribbons not having any fold, the right one could be fixed a little lower and fold to the left/up, a thing on its neck could use a contour in at least a part of it and more pronounced tilt on the left, front legs could be extended and fixed so the will lay on inclined ground plane like hind legs...
Generally I like it a lot, but as I say - I have a feeling from it that it is a bit plain. I think trying... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2728116 Thank you! I appreciate your critiques. I am painfully aware of all the flaws. I copped out there at the end (towards the body) because I never had a rough sketch to start off with. Maybe if I plan out my pictures more instead of trying to rush them, I'll see fewer mistakes.
So I've read loomis and I know to construct random faces from imagination. But what about drawing someone specific. How do I do it without resorting to symbol drawing and just copying the features from a photograph onto the base proportions? How do I draw people without any reference, how do I remember their faces well enough? How do I study their features? Is there a book for this? Or was it already explained in loomis but i just missed it? Searching on the internet just gives symbol drawing tutorials.
>>2727416 Charge based on the budget of the client. Some book publishers are small and so you might charge only a few hundred. Some publishers are big and can afford thousands, so you charge that. Most private commissions pay poorly so they're usually not worth it, but go through the motions and bargaining and see how much you can charge someone.
I can't decide if it's thriftier to buy a cintiq or spend a bit less on a tablet+pen combo instead. Anyone ever try some of the free apps for iphone/android on a tablet with a pen? I kinda want the tablet 'cause I can bring it everywhere unlike the cintiq and I can browse the internet and shit on it too.
Just buy the cintiq. When you get into trying alternatives you will end up spending more money when you realize the cheap shit just cheap shit and that the cintiq, while grossly overpriced, is still a better buy than some toy from apple/Android.
>>2725896 Most tablets feel fucking awful to draw on. Like finger painting with a half second delay. Don't get thrifty when it comes to digital tools, you get the best software, the best hardware and you use the shit out of them.
Look up some Youtubes comparing various options and try to decide from there. My 2c: Most tablets are not worth the effort but higher end options like surface pro or ipad pro are great. These things unfortunately aren't cheap. The Apple Pencil's response is simply the best you'll get (palm rejection, sensitivity, angling & shading, zero parallax), very hard to settle for less when you get used to it. If you must have photoshop and easier file handling, get a cintiq or surface pro. At any rate a portable option is well worth the compromise, it's fun as hell to do shit like take your gear outside and do plein air painting digitally, snap a photo then finish at home. If you're looking for the most cost effective option it would be better with a cheap computer and older wacom tablet.
So I have an idea for a tattoo that I want. I've always wanted a pin up, but I like to make every idea my own, at least a little bit. So instead of a traditional pin up girl, this popped into my head. I want a picture of a princess being carried away by something. My first thought was goblins. I've been searching for a few days and have only come up with a few pictures that fit the bill.
I want to put it on the front of my forearm, so it will be visible when I am sitting at a table, kind of giving the impression that the "goblins" or "minons" or whatever they are, are carrying the princess to their master.
Just a few ideas for what I want the goblins to look like maybe. I am unsure exactly how I want the princess to look, but I am thinking of a tattered torn up dress, I would like it safe for work if possible.
To clarify I am wondering if anyone has any images that fit the idea.
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, make your mom proud.
AVOID asking unrelated questions, there is a question thread for that.

>>2724279 These are my 5 minute studies from the past week. I seriously need some crit because I feel like I'm not moving forward very much. My brain is still stuck on symbol drawing and my lines are shit. I think I'm going to bump my studies back a bit and work on cubes, perspective, and lines
Come on guys, this isn't difficult. >take a decent work from the old thread >type /BEG/ in big ass letters across the picture >use as OP image >make sure /beg/ - Beginner Thread is in the subject NOT the name field >provide 3-4 poses, 2-3 animals and 1-2 buildings/landscapes as references

>>2728041 you'll have to study all of it anyway. so start with what you think is the most important. think about which that might be yourself. or just pick the one that interests you right now. in my case i always analyze what i'm lacking and then go from there.
1) Draw something. 2) Fuck up. 3) What did you fuck up? 4) Why did you fuck it up? 5) What do you need to practice to not fuck it up (as much) in the future? (spoiler alert, it's gonna boil down to fundamentals) 6) Fiddle around with whatever it is that you needed to improve in 7) Repeat forever 8) ????? 9) Heat death of the universe
That's in theory. In practice, as long as you don't stop drawing, and you don't stop studying, you'll be fine.

Fatter, larger text, smaller star with sharper, thinner edges (try to follow the curve of their center lines, the tail needs more streamline and a key that matches the star. The star centers color dodge hurts to look at, make it one color. When you design a good logo you have to think simpler, clearer, always emphasize the text.
>>2726301 Try /gd/, no amount of gesture studies prepares you for logo design.
Colour scheme kinda sucks and the intricities don't read, aim for a more silhouette based design and try to incorporate complementary colours for more eye-catching direction or keep it one hue for more of a branding approach.
>>2727763 there is the drawing thread, but I am not going to sage since I like your lines and simplicity
I don't care that much for composition as long as the scene is readable, which it is, but what about the story behind this? A hint in the background for why would the woman want to shoot the guy? If this is part of story, told with illustrations (comics, visual novels, which affect in their own way composition), I imagine you don't need to drop hints in each illustration, but if this is a peace of it's...

>>2727763 The gun placement looks a bit silly, like it seems so carefully placed there so we can clearly see it and none of it is covered up or anything. Maybe try grabbing stapler or something and a small bag and trying the sit in a chair yourself and see how you'd hold/hide it. I'm not really buying her pose. She also seems to be looking not directly at him, but more to the side, not sure if that is intentional or not. Most people aren't left handed either, though I guess it's not a big deal.

context: i never really thought about collages past gradeschool. i'm not super creative, or at least I didn't think I was. I started making these out of a stack of magazines I got from a thrift store. it's mostly a time consuming therapeutic thing, but now i've started to really enjoy it and i'm curious what anyone thinks.

I draw in a pretty simple style, 3 fingered hands and all that, its all VERY smooth and stylized. So I'm not looking for realism. However, no matter what style I'm drawing in... I can't do feet. Just can't. How the fuck. They never match up with the plane of the ground and they always look like shit. how do is feet. Pic somewhat related.
