An article on why Cambridge Blue (R 163, G 193, B 173) is FACTUALLY AND SCIENTIFICALLY BETTER than Oxford Blue (R 0, G 33, B 71).
It has been widely known among the academic and intellectual community that various shades of colour are objectively more pleasing to the eye and phyc (KAYA, Epps). Studies have shown that green tones (such as cambridge blue) are associated with good taste (Aslam, M.M (2006)) While blue (and deep blue tones such as Oxford Blue) is often associated with depression and sadness (KAYA, Epps). These preliminary findings already show that Oxford... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2672187 Not really, PS is a different medium, you won't get a traditional looking result without doing some unnecessary steps. Maybe Krita has a "proper" pencil tool, but if you want a real pencil look just draw on paper.
i am a self taught traditional painter , i studied art in highschool but never finished. my style as i like to describe it is dalì's surrealism mixed with kandinsky's colours. i would like to know how should i proceed in order to get visibility and hopefully start selling my paintings?
>>2671385 First read some Loomis books, study some old masters and read Color and Light by James Gurney to improve your painting skills. Keep a blog about your progress so people can see you getting better and you get some exposure from that as well.
so i'm trying to really get into drawing. i've made a habit of doing sketches every day.
i'm using a ballpoint pen or a pencil and i do a lot of scribbling until i get a line the way i want. is that a bad habit? i've read somewhere that you'll become more confident and really understand drawing better if you use a fineliner instead of redoing lines over and over in sketches.
i've tried using a fineliner for a bit but honestly everything i have been drawing ever since is garbage.
You could've easily figured this one yourself. Pencil trains you to control your values and to use more construction, fineliner trains you to have solid and confident lines without too much pressure. You need both, switch them occasionally (+- every two months) to get the best result. You'll feel a great improvement in your line quality after using fineliner for some time.
That makes no sense. You can't make it without working hard. That's literally the first thing you learn about any skill. You get this beat over your head as a kid when the other kids outrun you and do advanced calculations in a fraction of the time it takes you.
Is mirroring an image a reliable way to check your work? Whenever I mirror an art piece I'm working on and see the newly flipped image I feel weirded out. I don't know if that feeling comes from because I'm seeing my piece in a new direction or if there really is something wrong with it.
>>2671450 It's just because you're used to seeing it one way, and you're very subconsciously attuned to the minute details.
It's the same reason people sometimes feel creeped out when they see themselves in photos. You spend your entire life only really seeing yourself in a mirror, so when you see yourself un-reflected it seems subtly "off". Same with hearing your voice recorded. It only really sounds weird to you because you're used to hearing it coming out of your own head.

It's one thing that helps a lot. Humans get used to seeing what they look at and start to overlook things. Presenting it from a new perspective knocks the brain out of it's comfort zone and lets you see some of the errors more clearly.
So it's a combination of both; you are probably picking up on some flaws that you couldn't see before, but even if there aren't any flaws you would probably experience a slight feeling of wrongness seeing something familiar suddenly changed.
Because we should not have to make new threads or post in draw threads with our fundamental exercises. Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make your mom proud.
AVOID asking unrelated questions, there is a question thread for that.

Are these really necessary for drawing...? I've used guide lines for most of my life when drawing, but I question their usefulness now that im not particular baby mode beginner artist any more. And also the fact that I see some artists that don't use them at all. Mostly on places online such as drawpile and flockmod since I don't know any one in real life that draws.
I want to practice my drawing/painting, but I didn't start getting into art until I was around 19-20.
Seeing pictures like this: https://imgur.com/gallery/Wwhui
and knowing that it was made by a 13 year old....Makes me just not want to try. So many people who are into art started drawing as a kid. They have a decades head start of practice on me. It just makes it feel not worth it to try.
Since the original /i/ is gone, I can only hope that this is roughly the right place. Anyways, I'm looking for a painting/drawing that I saw on 4chan about 2 years ago and can't find anymore on my old hard drive. It was a man on a (afaik) white horse, who was kind of admired by a bunch of women. He kinda looked like a warrior, I think, might just have been a kind of noble person though. Oddly enough I saw it on /fit/. Picture unrelated, but still pretty based.
Yo, visual art people. What's the painting on the 4chan homepage? I think it's by some Italian working around the turn of the century--Bertolucci makes reference to it in his film 1900, if I'm not mistaken.
This thread is meant for artists who might want to try to make anime works in-between their studies. It is strongly recommended that you use this thread in conjunction with learning the elements and fundamentals of art. You can also discuss the visual elements of various professional artists as well if you keep it relatively articulate and civil.

>>2663043 You've been the OP of each and every single alt threads for half a year now. And the op pic of all of it are absolutely nothing but anime. You're driving away the non anime people and making these threads extremely anime heavy.
>>2671345 It varied from artist to artist and during different time periods.
I don't know of a single source that catalogs the entire processes for lots of artists. Probably for many old masters we don't have all their preparatory works anymore, either they have been lost or destroyed. Usually they would do a lot though--thumbnail sketches, drawing studies for each figure, paint studies for each figure or face, several colour studies for the entire picture, careful planning and transferring of the composition...

>>2671351 I guess I should mention I'm aiming to do standalone sketches, like Ingres.
But sketches played second fiddle to paintings for basically all of the "Neoclassical" period that I want to imitate (Renaissance to c. 1900,) so most examples are incomplete prepwork, and I wouldn't get far doing studies from incomplete stuff.
What I'm calling "Neoclassical" art may have been naturalistic, but photorealistic art does not look "neoclassical." So there's a style... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi, My name is Alex and I have to do a school project where I have to take a lot of pictures pf people and make it into a bigger picture kinda thing. I need people to take selfies and send them to me please and thank you. I would like only Asians for my project. but if your not. its okay. I dunno really care. Just wanna get it done.
So what the fuck is the deal with internships? Do you have to be in a school to apply for one, and are they a "requirement" for getting a job? I know that "paid" internships exist, but I have no idea if that is the norm, or if unpaid internships are most normal.
If you're just starting out, do you have to apply for an internship? It's completely retarded.. Say you life away from the studio, and you have to move, since it's an internship, you wont get any money, right? So how the fuck are you supposed to sustain yourself? Is there even...

>>2670523 Is it easy to just start working without having any "Interned at XXXX" on your CV tho (I'm not talking about applying, nor having interned at the big western studios like Pixar or Disney, but worldwide in general)?
yo waddup? can you guys recomend me some books on expressionism or surrealism? Really good biographies are welcomed too. I havent read one on Pollock yet, but ive read some Henri Perruchot books. Thanks.

he's a nice grandpa with good animation skills who found his niche. I am sure his animation classes are fine, as he has a lot of experience and there is a lot of free stuff on his youtube channel, so you might check it out. the way he's using opening every function with a menu and not keyshorts make my eyes rolling, but the videos are soothing. also his animation class ads are on every animation related website, that kind off kills my desire to attempt them classes. it feels like he's only in for the money, but that's ok, because this guy got a business...
