anyone have any tips on writing style?
i went for minimalism and flow
anyone has those instances where the color of your art just kinda gets warmer when viewed on mobile? Idk if my laptop has a problem
Photo aint related bleh
color reproduction on digital devices is a really really big fucking problem.
ideally drop 3k$ and buy a thunderbird apple screen. that's what every AD ever hiring you will use to check out your work anyway.
other than that, every monitor below a 3k$ price tag, every laptop, every mobile device (except maybe last gen apple devices) will have a screen that distorts color within some spectrum to some degree. it's really fucking annoying.

Care to offer any formal analysis regarding this work?
Nice "Batman But We Ran Out of Room for His Ears"

Lern 2 quickly summarize a scenario or drawing.
>build your 'grid' for perspective
>juxtapose objects of interest
>finalize textures and details
Although, I do admit, that's a dopely detailed drawing for 4 hrs. Good building perspective (likely a pre-made, traceable template) and good flowing motion of the ONE subject in this scene: a fantasy centipede.

Does anybody on /if/ go to school for industrial design or have any knowledge related to the field? I'm thinking about doing it but I'd like to know what you guys think.
I have a noob question and i don't even know what to call it...
Let me explain:
I need a photoshop option that will allow me to point a start that...will spread a bunch of "lines" around it depending on where this "point" was set.
I know i can draw it by hand but in this situation i REALLY need an automatical thing that does that in 1 second.
Picrelated is my try to explain it...
(cont with another example)
I found only this picrelated way to "do a bunch of lines automatically" but it does it in a way that i don't need.
As a learning process, is it okay to copy?
If you aren't just training yourself to be a human copy machine, yea copying someones art to try to understand how they got certain effects, or copying a reference are both totally reasonable
This + mileage, for an absolute beginner doing 100% copies of other drawings is a good way to get yourself to learn and you can train making confident lines. Make sure to mix it in with your other exercises though once you are semi competent
Most people tend to call their copying "studies" but there are tons of people who just duplicate a reference or art they like.
You can learn a lot from doing it, but as someone who's pretty good at copying from reference right now and still garbage at drawing from imagination, I can assure you that getting good at one doesn't mean you'll be good at the other. Practice both. Lots of studies, if you're critical, will help inform your imagination drawings and build you visual library though.
Is there any point to having a pen name as an artist these days? Or should I just go with my full name?
Seems like most of the big shots in art just use their real names.
depends. if you don't have a marketable name it's useful. my name is almost the same as a celebrities name, minus one letter, so googling mine autocorrects to theirs..
if you can search your name on google + art and there isn't anyone else there with a substantial following, use your own name (unless it's embarrassing )
Any printmakers here? Litho, relief, screen, ect.?
I'd like to see either some artists you like or maybe your own work you've done.
Beginning printmaking class. We had to combined 2 things. I got The head of Emperor Constantine and my bathroom.
Reductive multicolor relief print.
So I was in drawing II the other day and my professor says
"Why would you want to draw like the old masters?"
"So what they can produce realist drawings of the human form? That's no fun"
"Their pieces are unimaginative and boring"
None of us could voice our opinions without our grades getting completely shit on so we let it slide.
I'm a not even a drawing major but god damn did this make my fucking blood boil. hOLY fucking shit
talk about it
Not new in /ic/ but curius of the d/ic/ks process of drawing. i just take like 15 minutes to do this furry shit.
>curius of the d/ic/ks process of drawing
since im a little d/ic/k i don't take too much time in detail or color, i'll typically bust a nut and clean it up and won't give a shit about the rest
time frame 30-40 minutes since i don't want to rush already shit art
Seems like a lost art; I love seeing product/architectural renders from the 70s/80s/90s, and as an Arch student I'm trying to become proficient in using these kinds of drawings in my work.
Did these sketches before the previous render; I like markers for their 'punch' in delivering solid areas of color & definition in a very gestural way.
Sketching, drawing techniques for product desingers by Koss Eissen and Roselien Steur
Perspective Sketching, Freehand and Digital Drawing techniques for artists and desingers-
Two pretty neat books about exactly what you want and both have great marker drawings, check them out.
everyone knows 1,2,3 point perspective, but how does /ic/ deal with distortion?
I try to understand this field of view business.
Would it be accurate to say that the face to the left would be what you'd see in real life if the person sat as a model for you, and you would only see the perspective of a face to the right in real life if it was a giant "attack of the titan" size person?
