First time on /ic Wanna get into art, especially paintings, either abstract and/or with a backstory or something which relates to that artist or the time it was written in. Where should I start? Should I just visit museums or is there a place online where you can learn and look at paintings? Pic related I really like this painting by Umberto Boccioni.
>>2719305 1. Read the sticky. 2. Draw and paint from life as often as you possibly can. This should take priority over working from photos. 3. Look at art by a wide variety of artists, not just those of one genre, style or movement. See what others have done throughout history, and what others are doing now, and why. Visit galleries whenever you can -- it's important to see the originals rather than photographic reproductions. 4. Read books on art (history, theory, technique).

>>2719305 wikiart+wikipedia should be enough to get you started learning about art history. you can't replace going to real galleries and museums though. Still, museums are more about experiencing the work than learning the backstory and artist bio.
>>2719232 to do bigger stencils you can always use image splitters which you can easily find on google. It splits in image into sections so that you can make bigger stencils. But of course you gotta tape them together since they are split up.
>>2718756 In the comic book industry, traditionally there is a penciler, an inker and colorist (usually a digital coloring done in photoshop). However this client is asking me to do all three. If that is the case, wouldn't it make sense to just draw it from scratch digitally if that's the final product he wants? I'm just thinking in terms of the work process.
Is there a name for the genre of this kind of art that revolves around skeletons, motorcycles, guns, roses and death? Everyone knows the type of art I'm talking about, but I've never heard of the name of the actual genre.
Pic related, obviously not mine, just something that popped first from GIS.
If there's no name, I'm going to call the genre "badass".
And it often never was in the first place. Yet people continue to worship the human form like being the 1000th person to draw an accurate portrait is gonna get them anywhere in the current year. You will never make it until you give up that delusion.
I have question to artists who draw sexually suggestive art/straight-up smut regularly. I know a lot of you here do.
You find yourself dealing with sexually stimulating imagery for long hours every day. Even if it's something subtle like girly legs and a skirt, you are sitting in total focus, in the flow, staring at it for long hours. Do you find it affects your mental state somehow?
It's not like you're edging watching porn all day, but it's related for sure. According to my diary, during the weeks I work with smut-related imagery, I become... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The meme culture of /pol/ is, by far, the best success I've had as an artist. I've been making OC Pepes for Trump support and in general, and nothing beats seeing one reposted there. It's like being Goebbels and having your work become significant as propaganda. But, it's not as simple as it seems. I've seen a lot of flawed shoops of MAGA hats onto anime girls and awoo faces, so we could clearly do better. They've never even heard of Loomis, and rarely use perspective. Also. Pro-Hillary Pepes are being produced all of a sudden on /pol/, and I'd... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
We are an /ic/ based art Discord group running since 2013 dedicated to the improvement of each member's artistic abilities through peer support, critiques, and friendly competition. The group's on Discord, but we use deviantart to keep track of everyone's posting. If you will only lurk this isn't the group for you. We want people who participate in the community.

Since the old draw thread is pretty much dead I'm just going to be an asshole and make my own thread.
Started this piece about 2 weeks ago. Had to take a >1 week break because my computer broke. Now that I look at it with fresh eyes I'm pretty sure I'm not ever gonna finish it...
I'm at a skill level where If I'm just doing a simple study, it'll look pretty much like whatever I'm referencing so that's good. If I'm doing a simple character on a simple background it'll also look good enough to get dem likes and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2718564 >should I just keep doing the simple shit I'm at least decent at to land some shitty jobs or should I keep trying and failing with doing bigger pictures with more stuff? It can't hurt to take on a few jobs and make some money and get experience (so long as the jobs are not underpaying you or anything). That said, you should work on being able to handle a full illustration.
Basically you need to start doing more thumbnails and planning before jumping into a final image.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Thanks a lot for the reply anon. You're a 100% right about me. I'm terrible at speed painting. Most of the time I'll start a speed painting and end up polishing it for four hours. It's just really hard to for me to keep in mind WHY I'm doing the exercise.
>>2718580 Just put a time limit on yourself, say for 30 minutes or an hour. Or you can do your studies and sketches on canvases that are like 300x500 pixels so it's literally impossible to add details and you just work on the important things. Or only use a big brush so you can only make big shapes and no details. Or only let yourself do one brush stroke every 15 seconds so you have to think and make it count. Or something else you come up with.
Set some strict limitation so your brain can't be dumb and forget... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've been in love with Rommy de Bommy for a long time now, yet something has always made me wonder: what the hell are her purses and necklaces made of? In all the descriptions of her products, she says they're made of of "soft/hard foams" and are "super super lightweight." What do you think they're made of /ic/?
(Note: she has a website, rommydebommy.com, and an etsy under the same name)
>Thousands upon thousands of artists that are heavily experienced in the fundamentals >No one ever tells struggling artists that waste years upon years what they should do, and it's a virtual rarity when they do >Most likely out of fear of creating more competition
Is this the true toxicity of the artistic community?
How do people even find the energy to make vent art? I'm too shut down to lift a fucking pencil and when I actually try it ends up being some edgefag bullshit that looks like it was conceptualized by a Family Guy writer and drawn by a child copying a How to Draw Manga book.

what program would best be used for creating a comic/doujin?
i've always used photoshop for years, but i really hate the way comic style art ends up looking. it's way too rough and unclean. so i started looking for alternatives. i just tried sai and it's amazing, in the way it looks at least. but no where near as versatile as photoshop. I've heard manga studio 5 is good, and I'm considering it, but id really like some other opinions before investing in it. already read a lot of reviews on google and there's more than a few saying sai...

and I want to share it with the world. I really enjoyed making this lil guy and I can definitely see drawing becoming a hobby, but wow was it tedious. Any tips on how to make it less so? Done in Paint with the spray can thing.
Mileage. Make a lot more. It's less tedious if you have some practice to build on and if you make it a habit. Also you might want to upgrade to a program that has layers and masking tools, so you don't have to overpaint stuff over and over again.
I like it, the music is pretty sweet. Reminds me of a music video from the 90's. I was a bit put off by the clean vector text in the beginning since it sticks out like a sore thumb compared to everything else. Also the dust effect looks a bit fake and it appears as if it's the same shapes over and over? Maybe you could make it a bit more subtle.
Post your current drawing here and give constructive critique to others! Please make sure your posted image is clear, DOWNSIZED TO AROUND 1000 PIXELS WIDE, ROTATED TO THE CORRECT ORIENTATION, and that any unused space is cropped. If you want critique on a drawing from the previous thread, you can delete it there and repost in this one and then hug a kitten for good luck. >dA /ic/ group : >http://4chan-ic.deviantart.com /ic/...

>>2714897 They're not anything like printer paper. It's a very thick sturdy paper that can take a lot of abuse. It's incredibly smooth, so it feels like it's almost glossy when you draw on it as the pencil just glides along the surface. Imagine smooth newsprint but without the soft give of the paper because it is thicker and stiffer.
Can someone who actually knows about art and isn't a manga doodling teenager (99 percent of /ic/ are the latter) please explain to me why people pay $12,000 dollars for lara merretts paintings when all she does is throw ink on a canvas?
I could make something similar for about $300 dollars in a couple of hours and nobody would even pay me more than what I spent making it.
