Is it the best artbook ever made, /ic/?
Not trying to be contrarian for the sake of it but it was one of the worst how to draw books I've come across, it's so full of fluff it's even worst than drawing on the right side of the brain.
Best book coming through.
Gave its kickstarter a peep. Looks like a cringeworthy rpg-esque interpretation of learning how to draw.
Does anyone use super sculpey here? I want to sculpt something on top of a baked sculpey part but I don't want the new sculpey piece to stick to the old one. Is there any way to prevent the new piece from fusing to the old one when applied directly?
I'm a little confused on what you're asking exactly? You want to bake one piece, then create another piece to add onto the already baked part? What exactly are you making? The only thing I could think of is using wire to actually keep the pieces separate with a little bit of wiggle room but kind of hard to give advice when I'm not sure what you're trying to do.
Here's basically what it looks like. I have a face done and I want to sculpt the hair on, but I want them to be separate pieces because it'd be easier to sand the hair and paint the pieces that way.
Well it sort of worked when I left it outside to freeze so I can pop the piece off. Anyway SS seems like to break when I cut thin areas. Any better alternatives? I see the nips like to use polyester putty for their sculpts. How sturdy is it?
Do you care about poetry
do you care about videos do you care about mystery do you care about anything at all tell me you care
They maybe human photocopying machines but from what I hear, many of these painters were trained as artists but there apparently is no market for original paintings it seems for them(guess they haven't discovered the wonders of patreon)
the first monday of the new year is as good as the first day of the new year, right?
i know i said i'd start taking this seriously as my new years resolution but it was a friday. it makes more sense to get a fresh start on a monday.
i'll go to bed early, wake up, exercise and then draw all day. 2016 is going to be my year. let's do it guys
Just don't overdo it.
Seriously. If you set your goal something retarded like "draw 8 hours a day after my 3 hour run" you're going to quit in days. Make your resolution achievable without dramatic changes to your lifestyle, that's how you'll form a habit you can keep at and build upon.
Drawing an hour a day for a year will serve you far better than drawing eight hours a day for a week.
i was trying to shitpost and you ruined it with your support and encouragement
Has any of you ever done a course at one of those classical ateliers?
How was it?Can you recommend it?
There's an atelier near me; I might start attending next summer if I can bring myself to part with my precious, precious money.
I haven't, but know other (professional) artists that have, and it has really upped their game. art college tends to teach you how to think creatively, whereas ateliers teach you the technical proficiency.
Not all ateliers are equal. If you have any near you I suggest researching into what methods they teach, what the work of the teachers looks like, what the student work looks like etc. Some clearly will be better than others. Some will teach construction, some will teach sight-size, some are open minded, some are closed minded.
Most let you book a tour and talk with the main professor.
I think ateliers can be great if your goals align with what they teach. If your goals are different from their goals...

Are there any video of convention with artist doing digital painting? ZBrush for example, they host conventions and upload videos on youtube where lot of artists show off what they can do and talk about the industry. Is there something similar for Wacom?
Me Oog, me draw mammoth. What you think?
How much realism do you need to understand before tackling stylize/cartoonish art?
Depends on the style and person. Some people go straight to stylized art and do well, others do realism first then shift over. /ic/ usually says you need to master realism first but that's demonstrably not true. So long as you have an understanding of form and other fundamentals you can begin stylizing. The issue is people will stylize without knowledge and produce crap or symbol-based work that looks flat and terrible.

anyone interested in architecture? to me, it's the closest i can get to working in art and paying bills. anyone work in the field?
sketch is by me of Rem Koolhaas's Villa Dall'ava (1991)
I was strongly considering it but then I realized it wasn't wotth it. Not sure what country you're in but in the US you need to get a 5 year degree if you want to get an architecture job. If your school doesn't offer it then you have to get a bachelors in arch and then a masters which will probably take another 2-4 years. All that work and then you get shit pay and really shitty hours. Not worth it imo. I'd rather have a cushy office job that pays me more and leaves me with more time for my personal studies.
Architecture will consume you, and for the vast majority their jobs are only marginally artistic. But there's always a way to make it if you work hard enough, and smart enough.
2 years out of university.
I know this is a meme that shitposters like to post but I was always curious: what exactly is wrong with this? It's not that bad in my opinion. The painting is decent, maybe the pose and the anatomy leaves a bit to be desired but overall, it's a decent piece.
Do I have any sort of talent? Should I keep practicing or just try something else? Sketch in photoshop, 45 minutes to one hour.
>Do I have any sort of talent?
Talent doesn't exist, faggot.
And if you have to ask should you keep practicing, then the answer is: no, try something else.
You clearly don't have enough passion for painting to master it.
so I want to make a tattoo, minimalistic astronaut. something like this. if someone can please draw me something like it
