>>2659688 That's true for me with moves, music and video games because I don't actually give a shit about any of it, I just pirate it because I can and it's easy, but I'm paying for NMA precisely because I couldn't get it for free.
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.

>>2653601 There are several such universities in Poland, they require to pass few exams first (drawing human figure, painting still life and then a field of studies exam, so e.g. a storyboard for animation or a design, most of these on a 100x70cm format) some of them are also equiped with modern technology, such as Dragonframe, mo-cap and such. You have a lot of drawing there, anatomy, hired models, exploring certain topics (lighting in animation for example), history of arts, developing your own style, working in various...

So I've been drawing for a couple months now and decided to draw from imagination instead of refrences and thought it was easy until I realized creating the simple shapes was the easy part. Now I'm stuck at coloring and shading. Any clue how to color this or shade this? Not asking for free work just any tips or suggestions. Also help general.
Thinking in general? What makes art academic? Should we allow freedom in art, freedom of expression?
The more I know about art, the movements surrounding the first half of 20th century, the more feeling I get Hitler was actually right, because most of the art created in 20th century is nothing but absolute utter trash?
So how do we identify art? If art is any childish expression, it has no place in academics, if it has no place in academics, it cannot design culture, if it cannot design nature, it's useless.
Art cannot be anything and everything,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>tfw I couldn't give any less fucks about traditional art (except pencil art, everything else sucks)
Seriously, I love making digital paintings and shit. I only do traditional art when practicing new things/theory and that's when I use pencil. I hate watercolors, acrylics, oils and the likes. However I'm very into making it. I want to be like those concept artists in gamind industry.
Seems like every serious school in my country focuses in traditional art. It's difficult to get accepted when I actually have next... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
took a good hard look at my own life and what i let it become (graduated 2015, been year since, nothing but NEET shit the whole time).
Things I managed to accomplish >half of a semester of premed classes at an extension program >got my driver license after 4 failed behind the wheel attempts and 3 failed written attempts >somehow kept working out and managed to avoid fatness, metabolism also helped but its on its last legs now >bought a wacom tablet and a powerful desktop pc with parents money, they are also paying for adobe creative cloud subscription
Anyways, so there I was, wallowing as usual, and I read an article about how we twentysomethings aren't aware of how this is the most important period in our life and how pretty much at 30, we are locked in. This scared the shit out of me and forced me to really think about the things I was doing to set my 30 year old self up. Dabbling and switching from what I majored in, architecture, ideas of medical school, completely weird things like computer science or welding at the local trade school.. enough. It was really time to start prepping for the time of judgment in 7 years. I thought about what picture I'd like to see, what kind of person I'd like to become by then, and I realized the only thing that would matter the most is being a part of the animation process. With the accumulated skill I could try dabbling in related mediums like comics, paintings - things that still interested me, but I knew I had to focus in on something, and that left me at animation.
I've posted here before. I've uploaded random doodles and tried participating in LAS, even unmotivated losers a couple years back. I'm glad I did, you guys are great, even with your flaws. I live in Los Angeles so I'm sure I can find an internship somewhere and start wedging myself deeper into the industry from there.
I started this post to ask for help but I think I just wanted to tell you guys like a child running to their parents excitedly.
Is it something you care about, /ic/? Is it something you try to keep in mind with every completed image or just keep to images being sold/gifted? Applies to artists who use traditional medium for the most part
>>2658375 Not really, but I also tend to buy good quality paint so the problem mostly solves itself. Paints like Alizarin Crimson are outclassed by more useful and more lightfast alternatives either way, like the PV19 Quinacridone Rose/Red/Magenta. On the other hand I also sketch with fountain pen ink and Ecoline, which are dye-based and not lightfast at all, and do all my charcoal drawings in newsprint. I'd obviously care about it if I was selling work or putting it up somewhere, but for personal stuff that's likely... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I don't care because I don't sell or display any of my work.
I color my work with Dr Ph Martins dyes and Copic markers, neither of which are lightfast. Since everything I draw is scanned and spends the rest of its life in a portfolio lightfastness doesn't matter.
Usually artist quallity series differs from the cheaper studio series by having better and more pigment.
Usually the lightfastness is written on the tube or pan.
If you worry about the durability of your colours you can paint them on a piece of paper. then cut the paper on the middle so you have two identical charts. One you put in your window for sun exposure, the other in an envelope. Then after a year you can compare the two.
Artificial light have less wavelenghts than sunlight and that can be why some colours fade or change in the scanner.
>>2659157 I'm struggling with finding a way to tell you that this sucks dick without demotivating you in the process.
Just.. learn to draw, man. Get good at something you like, you might accidentally come up with a cool design but as long as you don't have a skill you can rely on, you don't have a lot of potential with your hobby, no matter what it is.
>>2658334 >using a new wacom That the fuck do you mean by a wacom? Wacom has a lot of different models. I hate it when someone goes "I use the wacom tablet" WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU MEAN? Intous? Bamboo? Fun? Cintiq? PLEASE DONT BE A NIGGER.
Hey /ic I've been watching a lot of flash animations and i've come to the conclusion that pshycicpebbles is probably my favourite animator, his new stuff is more detailed and he has a very nice style of animation, plus I like his original content quite a lot (hell benders).
My question is, who is your favourite animator and why ?
On a side note max gilardi is probably my runner up.
>>2658545 This. Often when people talk about their favorite animators what they really like is the comedy/story elements. If we're talking pure animation skills then people like bahi or yutaka nakamura are up there
more like your love for creativity gets crippled by everyday teenage and adult life and artists are the ones who either never let that happen in the first place, or managed to nurture their creativity back to a healthy state.
I recently got into some financial issues (college student, what else is new) and have been trying to sell some of my artwork to maybe gain some sort of extra income. I was wondering what would the best way of advertising be? I've tried a few different websites and so far not much has been in my favor. Any advice is valued. I've sold 2 pieces in a 1 year period.
(also if you would like, include an image of your favorite album cover)
