Alot of people say that unless you spend like two weeks on each bargue plate then its pointless, but then wouldnt it have taken like 3 years for van gogh to do each one twice? and didnt his brother help publish it? i feel like he knew how to do the exercises properly.
I think the idea is more the requirement for care to measurement and precision rather than any arbitrary time-limit. Basically it means "don't rush it and just slap down lines until you get lucky, take your time and make sure you get it right intentionally."
That's my impression anyway, I'm not super well informed on bargue plates so take it with a grain of salt.
What would you guys consider the essential brushes to have for photoshop for texture and general painting? It seems the default brushes are pretty awful, but there are so many online it's difficult to set aside which ones are actually useful for painting.
The default brushes aren't really that bad. You've probably heard this before but, it's not the brush that really matters, but your actual artistic ability. If you're basically a beginner, stick to round brushes for the time being. >>2341069 ye
Checked the catalog for a thread I could ask my personal question in, but might as well make a general for discussion then.

So I recently got the Yiynova MSP19U from amazon (500/10 btw) but since the monster is bigger than my laptop itself I either have to rest the thing on my shitty unstable folding desk and lean really forward, or set it on my lap and lean back.
Im still faster than with my old Pen and Touch, but now Im thinking of investing in a real desk and a better chair so I can have a more stable and consistent setup. Preferably faced away from my sexy sexy refrigerator that keeps distracting me from my work. Wondering if anyone can share what they use or have used in the past that has either really been amazing or fucked them over.
Got lower back problem like most of America, but pretty sure buzzwords like ergonomic are marketing ploys. Also not a fan of a standing desk, since cashier is my day job.
>Checked the catalog for a thread I could ask my personal question in, but might as well make a general for discussion then.
There's a thread literally called "question thread" with a big giant question mark as the OP.
Still I guess a battlestation thread is due.
>Where do you do most of your artwork Do most of my stuff at my desk using my tablet though sometimes I do doodles in bed/on the bus in a sketchbook.
>What are your dream materials/setup I'd love a big set of copics to play with, but I wouldn't use them enough to be worth the investment. If I won them as a prize or something though I'd be pretty stoked. Same idea for a cintiq, I'm not gud enough to justify the investment yet. I'm waiting for a decent competitor to come along that can push prices down a little before I jump into display tablets.
>How do you deal with fatigue while drawing I take a break. Usually a short one is sufficient, if I'm really burned out I just put it down for the night. Normally though once I get going I'm pretty motivated to complete things and I keep coming back to it even when I tell myself I'm done for the night.
>Post / Describe your Setup pic related, sorry for the blinding light, my phone camera is garbage. Nothing too special but I find it pretty comfy.
>Anything to do with the physical approach to making art fapping
>>2340925 Everyone knows question thread is pretty much another beginner general. Sides, at least its good enough for a main thread.
The Yiynova I got from Amazon was $500 and is huge. For some reason the 12 inch is more expensive. Its really easy to set up and I was able to justify it since I made about that much from commissions in 2015. Took me 6 months of savings from my day job to get it.
Ive used a cintiq before at an art meetup and I honestly cant justify the additional $1500 needed for that piece of equipment.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm trying to find some nice books to learn more about painting/coloring techniques. I only use digital media for now, but I guess even a book about oils could help me a lot. If possible, I'm looking for a book that not only gets into theory, but talks also about procedures with step by step.

>>2340718 also im going out to eat in a second, but can someone leave a reply explaining how you draw digitally from reference? i'm on a macbook. do you just open it in a window and look back and forth? do you make it a layer and switch it on and off? what do you guys usually do
Hey /ic/ Im doing my GCSE's and im not happy with my coursework. Even my favourite piece i dont feel like its good enough and i would really appreciate some suggestions for how to make it better regarding shape and tone. Id also appreciate any suggestions for supplies (pencil, pens and inks)
I really want one of these so I can sketch anywhere and draw on the go without carrying a crazy big sketchbook. Is it worth it? How good can you draw with it? I've been researching th whole of this week and I'm about to get one so far everyone says it's amazing for a drawing tool.
I post a similar response in all these iPad threads
It depends a lot on your workflow and how much time you spend in the iOS ecosystem. If you are a heavy iPad user, then the drawing / sketching capabilities are a great addition to your usual iPad activities.
Personally, I had a strong aversion to going digital, but the iPad makes it much more convenient to start a digital drawing. Also, I'm no pro, so apps like procreate give me more than enough functionality. I use about 50% of the procreate features and about 6% of PS.
I already spend 8 hrs a day... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Just picked this up, I thought itd be another one of those shitty "draw a dog with just 5 lines!" books but its actually gold and teaches a good ammount of fundamentals very well >ITT: Gems you wish you knew earlier
This is the best perspective book I have ever read, unfortunately I only came across it when I already understood everything in it. Another great one is foundations in comic book art which is the best book on fundamentals Ive seen yet. If you could combine these with something on colour and something on anatomy on would have a hell of a curriculum.
Let's diversify /ic a bit and share some of our creations that are NOT paintings/drawings.
Jewelry, sculpture, metalworking, woodworking, glassworking, ice carving, masonry, polymer clay, etc — you name is. Anything goes — as long as it's an object you've made and it's at least somewhat artistic.
