Can we have a pyrography thread? If it doesn't belong just let it die
I just got a woodburning kit for Christmas and I'm already running into problems- my first piece was even worse than this one, but I used a handcut plank this time and it cracked down the middle. What's the best wood to use, just normal basswood?
I also didn't sand enough so it came out fucky. Does anyone know a better way to transfer designs than graphite paper, shit sucks ass.
Critique welcome especially on pencil shading, I'm having a hard time getting it... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
there's one way of transfering photocopier ink into stuff by using a liquid solvent. It woorks with wood and you can work on a detailed piece of lineart in photoshop so you can transfer it or also drawing on paper, scanning it, cleaning it up and transfering it to wood. Don't forget to flip the image because it will print mirrored.
Use dense woods with a high burning temperature, preferably run by a calibration sanding machine so they are totally flat and even.
About the color, try dilluted gouache, watercolors or acrylics if you can handle them. Pencils... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2338216 Thank you for the advice. That solvent transferring technique looks interesting, might be worth it more to just do that instead of freehanding it/using that shitty paper. It worked ok on the near-paper-smooth basswood I got with my kit but was shit for the rough cut wood I used on OP pic.
Thanks for the advice on the wood- I can't afford a sanding machine but I might settle for getting a tool so I don't have to use the sandpaper by hand. I might experiment with using watercolors in my next try, might... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /ic/, are there any alternative books to Loomis's Fun with a Pencil to learn construction? I really don't like this book and no matter how I try, I can't seem to read more than 5 pages at a time. I once watched a youtube video on construction and it was more helpful than the book.
>>2338248 maybe no minimum. how long do you think someone would fake it with shitty 30 second posts before they lost interest. i guess a minimum wouldnt be a bad idea to be able to DQ the most determined shitposters
My mum asked me to design her a logo for her newly opening beauty salon and i stupidly agreed Basically all i want is a little bit of criticism and ideas and if your really nice (I hope you are) you can even add to what I've already come up with
I'll do it for free, if you can help me out with an English text. I'm not a native English speaker so could use some help with the grammar. My emailaddress is email@example.com (it's my spam account), please send me an email.
Hi there, I decided to stop bitching about how I can't draw, and actually start practicing. I'm practicing right now and I would like constructive criticism on how I can better my drawing. Thanks, and sorry for weird camera quality
>>2337770 I was interested in drawing eyes at this moment because I wanted to apply it to another project I'm going to work on. BUT I would also like to figure out hair, hands, feet, noses. I want to draw humans? But those are the things I get the most frustrated with...along with eyes because I dunno how to draw lashes.
I'm a beginner and I want to go through this book (I've tried loomis but his stuff jumps around a bit too much for me). Just wondering what ic thinks of it?
My main fear is that book will only teach me to copy drawings rather than being able to create from imagination. It also seems to focus more on shape rather than form, which (for drawing from imagination) is another red flag.
Anyone here read/worked through/knows about this book?
I've heard good things about this app, but also that it is currently not as fully featured as Photoshop and Manga Studio. So what are the important things that it lacks? Why wouldn't you use it for doing professional work?
>>2337663 Buy this book, it's a great starting point for anyone. Right now you are drawing with symbols. Try looking in the mirror and draw what you see. All the fine lines, the imperfections in your face, the values (shading etc.)
You are also drawing "hairy" lines, this is a bad habit. Be confident and draw longer lines. Don't erase either, if your first line was bad, draw over or next to it, this is called restating.
Can I get your thoughts on this piece I'm working on? I challenged myself to redraw something that I drew in high school and I wanted someone else to take a look and critique my perspective, poses, etc.
