How comes that every art pleb out there is a master of observational drawing although it's crazy hard? I never liked it but I feel like I can't continue with constructional drawing if I can't even properly observe and bring reference on paper as it is.
Anyone here know how to make an embedded flash video with music? Or failing flash, what alternatives do I have? I have an animated GIF I wanted to add sound effects and music to for a project of mine I'm working on.
I thought I'd ask here first and get recommendations before diving into google searches and reading for hours.
I have a private youtube channel I could use. But I'm not sure if it'll turn my pixel art into a blurry mess.
I want to main this aesthetic if possible.
and there you are fingering your bellybutton
can /ic/ help get photoshop on my new computer i used to have it but the method i used doesn't work anymore. can someone help? (dont recommend me the portable version)
Hey guys, I am currently reading Dodson's Keys to Drawing and I am on the section about mapping light and dark areas. I just read this tip and can someone give me an example of his tip? The picture in the book does not really help.
you can't be serious
>use hard edges for hard edges
>run the pencil back and forth across the boundary line for soft edges (ie use a soft edge)
do you need someone to explain which end of the pencil goes where?
>you can't be serious
Yes I am, and based on your answer, it seems you don't really appreciate what Dodson is saying here. Let me outline below.
>use hard edges for hard edges
Dodson says to stop the fill-in strokes at the boundary line, which I completely understand. What I do not understand is running the strokes over the boundary line for soft edges. Wouldn't I be making a new hard edge based on my strokes over the boundary?
Krita lands an interview with the esteemed Danny. Why aren't you this good yet?
I started reading that interview expecting it to be a terminally ill kid so I'd come back and call you a faggot, but it turns out it's literally just a furry version of the average d/ic/k, except with more balls.
Post your nsfw, critique work and so on.
Furry is not allowed. LOLI IS NOT ALLOWED. This thread is dedicated to helping anons improve their erotic drawings and paintings.
Do not start flame wars.
Do not reply to shitposting.
Stay on topic.
Why is it that you always can tell whether a drawing was made by a chink or not?
I've been analyzing pic related for forever but I can't figure out what makes them so distinctly eastern looking. Even though the character designs are western and all.
>Even though the character designs are western and all.
Literally all 80s cartoons were animated by TMS, you raging faggot.
As soon as american studios took over the animation looked like furaffinity dogshit.
From gummi bears to rescue rangers, everything was animated in japan and it shows.
Hey guys. I've always had difficulties with working with multiple issues at once. Doing composition, costume design, anatomy, rendering, color and all that shit at once feels really overwhelming to me as I'm still a fucking n00b at everything so I'm trying a new approach where I split the workload into parts.
I want to do an Illustration of a Marvel character called "The Shocker" with some new design elements etc. and I want a bad ass pose. Here's what I've come up with till now.
I made the costume design with Alchemy and Photoshop...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I actually tried a bunch of poses. Including the one I have on the pic... I also did a bunch of thumbnails. I just thought that I needed the character to look strong and ready for what ever. I dunno. I know it's fucking generic but you know... I want to get work so I didn't think that having a generic pose would necessarily be a bad thing. If you have any tips for better poses I'll fucking listen to you though!
80% of learning this shit is failing and then fixing it in the next project, OP.
Lrn2thumbnail. Thumbnails are the fwbs of the art world. It gives you everything you want in the picture without the commitment. You can design 20 of them, pick one, blow it up, and paint over it.
I remember not long ago there was topic made showing off amazing sculptures. Anyone got images they can share displaying some great sculptures?
Nude ones if possible.
always been my favorite, for more reasons than one
I remember in the Khan Academy video on this one of the lecturers mentioned how the Barberini Faun was discovered after Michelangelo died, which was too bad because he would have loved it. Made me kek.

How'd I do /ic/?
Just thought I'd let you know that I found that legendary "chinese loomis" all those god-tier painters kept studying.
Guess what, his name is Leonardo da Vinci and apparently he's not even chinese.
Now you have no excuse, so go, be free and git gud.
>roll eyes at another ruan jia thread
>"found legendary chinese loomis"
>wait he could be right
Hey all, I want to make this image of a crazed religious mob very unsettling/creepy but I think I'm missing the mark by a mile. It hasn't been inked and colored yet but I feel like I understand what's creepy but I'm having a hard time translating that to the page. Any tips? Does it look stupid? Should I scrap it and start with something else?
are those midgets? they look like midgets.
those postures are weak man, that guy with the hood looks stiff as fuck.
Work on you composition, do thumbnails before actually trying to come up with a piece.
Gonna redo an old favorite of mine, what arrangement is better (balance, emphasis, etc)? Pic is the original.
Also, post alphabets, pieces, references, everything callygraphy goes here.
Arrangement 1 (original one) I think the spacing is wonky at times, and looks haphazard in composition. Was made in a rush, really.
How do you know how far "off paper" to put two vanishing points to be "realistic"? I am a complete noob if you can't tell.
In 2-point, "realism" is based on how close or how far the two point are away from each other: closer means more distortion/makes it feel like you're closer; And further apart gives more flat, distant 'telophoto lens' feel. Good practice is to get a cuboid object and draw it a few times with different VP setups and you'll start to understand the effect
One point perspective is just a special case of two point perspective, it's just the other point(s) is off to the left and right at infinity,off the page.
In two point, you can have the point as close or far a part as you want, it'll just dictate the scale of your drawing.
Sorry if you asked the wrong question. I have no idea what I just answered.
Any other sticker artists around here?
I recently started doing this because I have weird ideas and doodles that friends enjoy, but they get lost in my notebooks with no purpose. So I started drawing mine in Inkscape and having them made into stickers to share, trade, and sell.
Bumping with another sticker design. If anyone is interested in getting into sticker-making or whatever, I'd be cool with offering advice and stuff.

Was keith haring the first street artist?
Infinite Comic! Do a panel, pass it on.
Ignore that other one, I forgot the box
>Go to Pinterest for reference and inspiration
>got depressed instead
I feel like after a certain point, I don't even need anymore inspiration. I just know what I need to do and that it'll take me time before I reach their level. I do get down when I think about how much I want it, but can't have it though.
Well it's not like SnK's art is good now.
So don't worry you can become famous and rich even of you draw like shit.
Im making (paying a few dollars) someone painting me and my GF, me like some dark angel, she as some fairy. to represent that the cute and innocent can seduce the wild and reckless.
she sent me the gray first sketch today. quite anonymous. then i gave it a few good runs through some effects and filters in some software. then out comes this.
she is good or what? so nice
Can we talk about Nintendo on the fucking warpath for fanart?
Fan art has always been illegal if you are profiting off it. I'm surprised more companies don't crack down on it harder especially when there's lewd things being produced. It's their property and they have every right to tell you to stop.
We had this thread before
What doxy did falls into the porn parody category,
if a full of shit argument, "offending" is not a legal defense, and they can do jack shit about it.
There isn't really any proof that lewd fanart hurts business. I remember back in the day when people used to develop so called total conversions for Doom and Quake etc. based on popular franchises. Many were shut down for no good reason and only serves to piss people off. Fan created content can only help a IP grow.

What do you guys do to get the best out of your time?
I've been doing a lot of stream of consciousness writing and wanna know what people think but am too scared to post it anywhere that isn't anon. If ya'll are interested I'll post some stuff here if not I guess let the thread die
This may be a signature? It was on the bottom of a pencil drawing of what we think is from Gone With the Wind.
What do you think it says?
has anyone here actually gesture battled? sounds like fun.
I think we could all use a break from the shenanigans.
What if we start an art club so we can help each other out and draw porn?
How do we do this?
>it will take decades to draw even like this
i-it's possible though, r-right?
