ITT:Tell everyone about your local art shop and gallery/museum.
Art shop: A nice little art shop that has been in the same locations for a long time, always has a very nice selection of Winsor and Newton artists oil, lots of different materials and a good selection of books, can always have a conversation with the guy who works there and he saves me mildly damaged orders of tubes of paint that aren't saleable.
Museum: It's the Joseph Wright gallery and museum, I have been going there since a small child and it is amazing, it has lots of Wright's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
They're pretty chill. All around nice people. If they don't have what you're looking for in stock, they will either order it for you, or call up another local shop down the street and ask if they have it. Either the owners are friends, or they're just that nice. They have a great selection of brushes, and inks. They even have pen nibs you can buy individually instead of just getting the speedball set. They alwas have a 30%... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2715447 Sup bro. Not really a student. I'll take a few art classes here and there at the community college for the studies and training, but I mostly just draw on the side and do comics. Been meaning to take the next level of figure drawing since the last class really helped with my skills, and being in that sort of atmosphere was a lot of fun.
Hey anons, I'm starting a webcomic proyect and I would like to get some fast feedback and honest opinions since I'm in the early stages of depeloping it, and that gives me enogh room from improvement and changes. I almost finished the prologue of the comic and I may change a little the style of the comic and the formating.

>>2717467 My main problem is the pacing. Everything is too rushed The first two pages are pretty well paced. You get time to actually appreciate what's happening. Past that feels very rushed and it's hard to figure out what's going on at a glance.

>>2717681 Are you talking about the water effects?, other than that I can't recall stuff that looked bad https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0kscrWF7nA Also, I don't think richard had anything to do with it
Could we share tips, trick and advices for any one who start as a freelance illustrator on social media or/and patreo? I talking about people that makes illustrations not importing if there are cartoon, anime or whatever.
I my case, I am a fan of Bengus and my artworks are based on his style.
<By the way; the pic posted is one of my sketches.
Is it okay to do so? Sometimes i just print some really neat lineart and put it on my wall in front of me to make me more inspired/motivated.
BUT it also one of reasons of why i never posted photos of my drawing place anywhere in the internet - because im afraid if artists will see it and say "Umm :\ You know you stole someone's property right? :\ If you like this artist-support him by buying this print :\"
Like now i wanted to post really good photo of my place on Memebook but then noticed that some bits of shitty prints here and there on the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
have any of you risen above this meme and achieved your art related goals? Are you on the way there? Are you close but not quite? Are you no where near there and ''making it'' is just a dream to you? Is art a passionate hobby to you or is it actually your job? Or mabe a bit of both?
i would like to hear about your personal experiences on the artists path.

>>2714960 If you have to make a thread to ask this question you could figure it out yourself it's self explanatory - no one needs to fucking spoonfeed you every single bit of information use your fucking head.
God is dead, and we killed him. We are still slaves to mother nature however, and those shapes are the industry standard for teachers trying help students learn general art within a certain amount of time.
>>2715355 >I guess it's good to have an understanding of all of the muscles though. Not really. Deep muscles that never show are not very useful to know. Maybe it will heighten your appreciation of the body or make you feel like you have a more complete understanding of it, but in practical terms it won't actually aid your drawing or painting.
Learn the skeleton at least in basic forms (skip the details of each vertebra or the bones of the wrist), then learn the superficial muscles,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The more often you post the more likely it is you'll get followers. Unless you're really good at what you do, you may have to deign yourself to drawing fanart to get followers. Interact with your followers, follow other artists and interact with them, just uh. Network, y'know.
This board is full of purists who shit on 90% of what networking and self-promotion entails though, so be careful. You'll inevitably get some people who will just say "just git gud ;)" but I've seen plenty of artists who are fantastically skilled and have almost no following because they don't 'play the game'. They post their art in big dumps now and then, hardly tag it, never interact with anybody, etc.
>>2714580 >Has anyone here ever been a nude artist model? No, though I modelled clothed once when a model didn't show up (we took turns).
>has anyone ever had to sketch out a live model for any classes? Did it help with your ability to draw the human form? Yes I've gone lots and it's helped a lot. I recommend you study some anatomy and learn basic observational skills first at home before going to life drawing though or else you won't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2717113 I saw a big exhibit of Dore a couple years ago and it was really mindblowing. He actually did a lot more than just the images people know him for--he was a master of oil paintings (illustrations, landscapes, fine art, biblical scenes etc), he did sculpture and other design work as well. Really impressive artist, and incredibly incredibly talented. There was a pen sketch he did from his head at age 12 that was better than any drawing posted on /ic/. I'd consider him possibly the most naturally talented artist of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm at that point when I realize that people who want to print things, don't draw small and that they draw pretty big most of the time, and this is overwhelming to get used too. I was used to drawing at 100 zoom, but now I zoom out to around 25 to 66.7 zoom when I draw and that leaves me with a pretty big drawing.
I just want to know how to resize these massive files I'm drawing.
