What does photography leave for painting/drawing? With photography making photo-realism painting obsolete, what is left for painting? Does this reduce painting towards being the most boring useless art medium?
Any of you ever go to ArtPrize in Grand Rapids MI? I am thinking if going, but have heard that it is mostly home made junk and that it is rigged. I just read that they are paying some artists with regional reputations to participate in the contest as well, which seems a bit inappropriate (and desperate), so it doesn't inspire confidence. I'd be driving from CT, and don't want to if it is going to be a waste of time. Any input from peopel who have gone would be appreciated.
Cave paintings are the earliest form of mural making, picturing everyday life and the objects and creatures that early man came across. Murals are also found on Mayan temples, depicting their lives and rituals and giving us a glimpse into their culture.
A mural is any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling or other large permanent surface. A distinguishing characteristic of mural painting is that the architectural elements of the given space are harmoniously incorporated into the picture.
Street art/graffiti is basically the out door version of murals. Basically most any styles or painting/illustration can be applied to murals, it's more the fact that it's applied to a permanent structure that makes it a mural.
i want to ask you a question about commission pricing. I know alot of people who post here are generally working on commision, but I wanted to ask if there was some rule of thumb as to pricing a commission vs pricing something that someone just decided to buy? I would like you can charge more for commission, but do you know if there is a set etiquette for it?
someone baught a painting of mine for 300$ and now they want to hire me to paint a portrait of theirs from photo. if it is the same seize should I charge like, 40% more, or what seems fair to you?
Commission work should be more costly as it usually involves special requests/additional work and occasionally new supplies.
I usually go by
(cost of materials)+[(time spent)x(my hourly rate)]=(cost of sold piece)
for pieces sold. adjusted of course of it's a one-off, if it's something mass produced like a print, and the comparative cost to similar work that's being sold out there. Cost of materials can also include not just the consumables used in the piece (clay, paint, etc) but part of the cost of studio space and tools used.

>>2669658 >How important is having artist friends? Not very. Co-workers/colleague =! friends. If you want friends, pick up a social hobby. Art isn't really a social hobby since the point is to study and practice to improve not fool around and obsess over memes.
>>2669687 I was thinking more in the sense of digital illustration. Having friends in the same field is not important at all. Filmmaking has a much more social aspect to it. It's nothing like the Illustration route.
In the center of the fresco, at its architecture's central vanishing point, are the two undisputed main subjects: Plato on the left and Aristotle, his student, on the right. Both figures hold modern (of the time), bound copies of their books in their left hands, while gesturing with their right. Plato holds Timaeus, Aristotle his Nicomachean Ethics. Plato is depicted as old, grey, wise-looking, and bare-foot. By contrast Aristotle, slightly ahead of him, is in mature manhood, handsome, well-shod and dressed with gold, and the youth about them seem to look his way. In addition,... Comment too long.

I didn't get a penny the world was as hostile to me as before and all my energy was gone making other people rich. I have the potential reality of watching my loved ones die never seeing me actually being successful in front of me. I still think someone might do me a favour but it seems very unlikely.
About 18 months ago now I hurt my hand, I was pretty sure it was some sort of RSI but by the time the NHS got around to doing any tests it was much better so they ended up shrugging and saying it didn't look like anything was wrong.
Anyway it seems a lot better nowadays but there's still times when I get aches and pains and it cramps up a lot if I do anything too fiddly, problem is I really want to get back into drawing but I'm terrified of fucking up my hand again.
Anyone have any experience with RSIs/carpal tunnel or that sort of thing? Is 18 months... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2666604 Pretty good for beginners since you get someone to correct your mistakes. Better than /ic/ critiques that's for sure. Drawabox takes you through a ton of stuff, even figure drawing, so you should learn a lot if you go through the course.
What's the general consensus on using tools with drawing/sketching, not just digitally but also paper tools like rulers, compasses, protractors, etc. For instance, if I were to draw a head right now, I'd draw a circle with a vertical and horizontal line going through the middle.
I only ask because I know one of the most basic principles of drawing relies on drawing lines and shapes, such as circles, and this feels like an easy cheat away from that.
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.

>>2668422 my bad bumped before I saw this. I cant find a place to order it online, im not sending a check in like a neanderthal. But I agree that itd be great to just have the basic planes in front of me.. The biggest thing right now that fucks me is the eyes. I cannot fucking draw both eyes in the right perspective, i can do an ok eye in any perspective but not the second. So one thing im really looking for are nicely made/sculpted eyelids because i really want to have that in front of me and just draw from it for days
In order to succeed as an independent artist, you need to have an identity and stand out, probably through unique or risky work. But in order to get a job, you need to have a solid portfolio with a clean, relevant and skilled work history. If an employer sees strange and risky work tied to you, you might get passed over in favor of someone else. Doing independent work requires you to be different, but being different also closes other doors, forcing you to choose one or the other. Of course this wouldn't apply to more popular and established artists, who can basically... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Do you consider colouring pencils to be childish? What do you use?
To me it doesn't matter what they say on the box it still feels like I'm a little kid drawing with crayon and it'll be stuck up on the fridge Nothing I do with them feels correct I don't know any alternative
Of course not. I like them for quick sketches. A more opaque pencil like Derwent's Drawing goes great on toned paper. Build a small color palette out of individual pencils rather than a fuckhueg tin and see what you can do with them.
>>2665352 I use a black pencil crayon to draw instead of a regular pencil sometimes. It goes to a deeper and richer black, it doesn't smudge as much, it doesn't have that silvery shininess that pencil has, and it has a waxy smoothness that feels nice as you draw with it. It's exceptionally nice on moleskine paper but I use it in regular sketchbooks too.
