This thread inspired me. As a side-project I think I'll start now a doujinshi about a guy who wanted to draw anime and become an animator in Japan, then discovered /ic/ and at the end finished as a whore sold to the brothel somewhere in europe.

Found this on her facebook. Looks like it's either fake pencils done digitally or a sketchbook page with some digital marks on top. Not that it's too good to be a regular drawing or anything but the marks look rather suspicious.

What the fuck even is autism?

The pilots hinted that I was autstic but fuck if I even know what that means to me. Jasmin is autistic from what I can remember too.

Thinking back... it makes sense. I mean, how many other kids in grade school could remember all the capitals and countries of the world? How many other kids were drawing the United States with every state in scale and proportion from memory?

That's some pretty autistic shit.

Don't study or redraw bad art.
You may think this is all you can do, but study some fundamentals and you will be amazed at what you are capable of. If your are going to study ir copy, always do it from someone way better than you. That way you actually learn something and have room to improve. Have a standard.
Also, don't draw with a fucking mouse. Clearly you have a camera, ink a drawing and and transfer it into the pc. But don't worry about coloring until you learn how to draw.

Zeen chin's first artbook. Don't think you can get them anymore since he said himself it was a limited release. He plans on making a second one which I am pretty sure with but limited as well. Expensive as shipping since it is from Malaysia.

I am a charcoal and pencil guy, mostly portrait comissions, and I am trying to get into oil paiting. The thing is, I have no idea where to start. I bought some mediums, color tubes, two canvas (which are now in the trash) and some brushes, but I have very little knowledge of he process itself. Any help would be great!

Blending on canvas, at least before covering your whole painting with paint is THE most n00b thing one can do and main reason for paintings not looking like anything at all.

What are some good resources for designing mechs?

Right now all I have is a basic understanding of vehicle architectures, but I'm still at a loss on how to remix all of this into shit like Gundam.

Google for:

mechanical joints
sheet metal design
HVAC
sports car exhaust

and similar. Think for a bit what are the characteristic features of the products you will see.

I'll tell you on the basis of pic related case for computer power supply:

- everything based on rectangle/box shape
- grooves and holes are repeating
- concentricity and order
- consistency: bending is everywhere the same with the same radius

Trace is for existing drawings/photo/works. It's not trace (and more importantly not plagiarism/illegal) to draw over your 3d model you posed. Same for tracing a photo you took yourself.

I disagree. Even if you provide the raw material yourself, drawing over a 3d model / photo is still tracing.
It's not a problem by itself, you can learn things that way, and it removes the copyright issue but you can't say it's not tracing
>>
>>2918992
ty my boy
>>
>>2919001
You could call it tracing but since the pose and angle are yours it's still much better than the usual tracing. I don't see this method as a problem. The lack of definition of the models won't help you for good anatomy and you overall still need to know your stuff. It's a very good way to make a solid base for your drawings.
