When did the magic die for you, /ic/?
What does /ic/ think of GIMP?
bare bones photoshop. It's biggest sin is not having good brushes, if you are going to use it you need to customize the shit out of it

Can this shit get popularity?
General graffiti thread. Ill start with my favorite
Critique please (wip)
I made some things editing photos. What do you think?
(Close up of each posted in beginner thread)
what the fuck is this meme about Drawing a box and ISIS I keep seeing??
im doing speed drawings but im out of ideas, will you be my muse?
>he wasn't around for prime CA
LMAOing at your lives, Conceptart.org was the promised land, Elysium. Legitimately good professional artists would critique your work and have god tier discussions about every single aspect of art and it's creation, there is LITERALLY nothing even comparable nowadays.
Really good, notorious artists didn't post that much. In fact I don't think I ever saw a triple A artist give an in depth criticism on there. You just thought they were top tier because you were young and easily impressionable.
>not being around sijun during the early years when spoogedemon gave you indepth crits
Best places to put up my art for others to see? I used DeviantArt a few years ago but that website has gone to shit so I'm looking at alternatives.
Being able to upload NSFW stuff would be great too, thanks.
Lots of people use instagram now. Only active decent sites I've seen are geared toward furries so you can either intermingle (some allow normal art too) or hopefully someone here has a better suggestion. Conceptart is still active if you're serious but hard to get critiques if you're not a master already.
Lemme get this right. The best way to learn anatomy is to do a million drawings using reference/pose photos.
Anatomy books/etc don't seem to help me much. Why I don't know.
Also, should I be doing a still life every day?
I'm dead set on improving but for some reason proko/vilppu/etc don't seem to help for squat. Along with all of these other books/resources I have.
Any general critiques on my work?
Kinda cool but also a huge oversized mess with no sense of composition, hard edges everywhere, no detail distribution, weird textures. Almost looks like professional concept art.
Also doesn't deserves its own thread.
Sketch book thread.
Let's see some good and interesting ones ITT

Post your current drawing here and give constructive critique to others!
Please make sure your posted image is clear, DOWNSIZED TO AROUND 1000 PIXELS WIDE, ROTATED TO THE CORRECT ORIENTATION, and that any unused space is cropped.
If you want critique on a drawing from the previous thread, you can delete it there and repost in this one and then hug a kitten for good luck.

is this you trying to be like that guy that gave you half a tube of white oil paint so you'd leave him alone?
this girl works at the coffee shop and she wanted me to draw her before she left for college

I was wondering if anyone would like to help me design a quarter sleeve tattoo, Im not great at drawing so it would help out alot.
What are the optimal settings for adobe illustrator if i'm trying to get gud at drawing.
I'm honestly considering entering FZD. I feel like it's the only way I will be able to will myself to work hard for once. Am I retarded?
I'm seriously considering buying the ipad pro.
I'm in love with that stylus/pencil.
I thought it'd be shit for the iOS alone, but it has some good apps, namely sketchbook pro and procreate, both of which I think can save as .psd

>Not as good for art as a wacom
But if you are going for a portable graphic tablet and don't care for a soldered, bastardized, proprietary, piece of shit, then go for it. Is probably your best option, but a better option too is to get a fucking notebook and draw traditionally on it. unfortunately doesn't have software only stuff like a battery life or lag, but you can still draw on it and just scan your drawing with a scanning app with whatever phone you already had.
Slowly I'm hearing of more and more people talking positively about them from an artist's perspective. It'd be great for painting practice at coffee shops... infact just thinking about that right now is making me want one too.
Awhile back someone posted a file of Jia's high resolution paintings where you could see his every brush stroke. Does anyone have that file/ more of his high res art?
I'm pretty poor
I make about as much as a cg animator in Japan. So I'm poor by American standards, but I'm reminded that it could always be worse. Considering I'm doing a menial, no-skill job it's not too bad. I work in a small store so I'm able to draw a bit on the job too which is nice.
If we are talking about my own money that I made myself and noone gave me loans or parents-wise. I'm probably in the animator catagory. I have an on campus job, and although it's the highest paying student job on campus, it's not much. We are given free housing(which is hella nice) and a stipend each semester. But that's it.
Daily reminder you don't have to be a god tier artist to be successful.

At least I learned how to draw faces instead of spending two months drawing nothing but gooks and still having a hard time at doing realistic faces.
How do you properly do a master study, /ic/?
I try to copy from my favorite artists and masters and that's all it feels like, blind copying.
Yet I see people like Vilppu copying from the masters and they somehow know exactly how they drew it, why they drew it that way, etc etc
It is copying but with intent. It really depends on what you're trying to understand from whatever you're studying. It can be composition, value, colors, line, etc. Focus on one aspect and try to understand how it's done by the artist and eventually some things will click and you'll see things you wouldn't have known before.
Hey peeps, just looking for a bit of critique on this animation I did. What did you like? What didn't you like? What should I work on in the future? Thanks!
That was just a bunch of random shit awkwardly stapled together. You can have a psychedelic video wich makes sense, you just gotta have a narrative, even if it’s weird as hell. Look up felix colgrave
Hey /ic/, /tg/ here. My wife does a lot of art where she does realism. Draws a lot of celebrities. I'm not an artist at all and don't know anything about drawing.
I need to get her a present and I want to get her something that will help her draw better. I'm gonna post some of her stuff. Let me know what you think/what I can get her. Thanks /ic/
Post your score, Anon.
First i hated him becouse is a Ilya Wannabe obviously but then i cann't stop like his shit, that guy is really awesome not as Ruan jia but is nice
is that supposed to be finished? looks like some wip that krenz would post.
is it weird that I like the wip of this one more than the finished version?
Why do Americans seem to have much more respect for stop motion animation than for traditional 2d animation?
"so much time and patience must have gone into to moving those little figurines!"
talking out of your ass again, do you OP? stop with the generalization.
Laika is doing very good work indeed, but can you confirm your statement by naming other big production studios?
also, eastern europe and the former soviet union were pioneers when it comes to stop motion.
look at works from jan svankmajer, jiří trnka and ladislas starevich
I'm not saying they're not doing good work, and I believe they work very hard. what I mean is that it seems that Americans need an excuse or gimmick to appreciate time grueling animation. good hand drawn animation can be just as tedious if not more so, but you never hear anything about it cause either people dont understand what goes into 2d animation or they simply dont care
